Bruins Vs. Flyers: Brad Marchand, B's Not Overconfident After Cup Win

If you're expecting to see a bunch of hockey players skating around like they're on top of the world, then you'll be disappointed. While the Boston Bruins are coming off their first Stanley Cup title since 1972, the focus in the locker room is on the season at hand, which begins on Thursday night at TD Garden against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Sure, the B's will be raising their championship banner tonight, and it will be a special moment. However, Brad Marchand and the rest of the Bruins are staying focused on their new task: winning another Stanley Cup.

"The ways the guys have come in so far, no one's overconfident because everyone has been [warned] about the Cup hangover," [Marchand] said. "Guys seem very aware of it and it just seems like everyone's focused to come in and try to prove that all wrong. We've got a nice little swagger about us, but at the same time we've got a lot of confidence but we're very aware of our situation." (via WEEI)
