Justin Florek is vying for a fourth-line job at training camp.

"I take every day as it comes at me, just kind of put my head down and go to work," he said. "I've just got to focus on what I do best: Play my game and not try to be someone I'm not. I try to keep it simple, get pucks deep and go to work offensively and then try to be responsible defensively. I definitely would classify myself as grinder and I think every team needs players like that. The way the Bruins play, I think it really fits my style. I'm hoping my game fits into their game plan." Florek skated in four games during the regular season and another six contests in the playoffs last season.

Justin Florek was gifted with his first NHL playoff goal in Game 2.

He opened the scoring on Sunday on a bad turnover by Red Wings goaltender Jimmy Howard. Howard's clearing attempt hit Brendan Smith in the leg and Florek deposited the puck into a yawning cage. "The puck was chipped out when Howard was coming off the play at the end. I was lucky he was firing to his forehand and I tried to read it," Florek said. "The next thing I knew the puck was on my stick. I just turned and fired on net, and the rest is history." He generated a goal and an assist in four outings during the regular season. Florek, who grew up in Marquette, Mich., will get a chance to play in front of family and friends when the series shifts to Detroit this week.
