Reilly Smith netted his first career playoff goal in Game 2 on Sunday.
He scored on the power play to give Boston a 2-0 lead after the first period in an eventual 4-1 victory. "It definitely gives you confidence and I'm pretty sure the press in Boston, they can get on you if you're not scoring," said Smith. "I've heard — even from Dallas — enough about (Tyler) Seguin and (Jaromir) Jagr not scoring too much in the playoffs last year. It is good to get that one in the back of the net and kind of keep you guys off my back a little bit." He struggled to produce after the Olympic break, but the playoffs is a whole new season for him to rebound in. Apr 21 - 10:11 AM

Reilly Smith will play in his first NHL playoff game Friday against Detroit.

Smith was a nice surprise this season. As the player added into the Tyler Seguin-Loui Eriksson deal, Smith exceeded all expectations with 50 points. Boston coach Claude Julien is a big fan of Smith and believes he will have no trouble adapting to NHL playoff hockey. "I don’t think that he gets overly excited to a point where it effects him", Julien said. "He's pretty even keeled. Like I said before, if there's anything, he has a tendency to get hard on himself and he demands and expects a lot, but I don’t think this is going to be an issue for him". Smith may make a nice late round selection in playoff pools this post-season as he plays on a line with playoff wizard Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. Smith will also be motivated by the fact that he will be facing off against his brother, Detroit defenseman Brendan, for the first time in the post-season.

Reilly Smith reached the 20-goal mark on Tuesday night.

He snapped a 10-game goalless drought in the process. Smith has 50 points in 79 games this season, but he's been ice cold since the NHL returned from the Olympic break.
Apr 9 - 7:18 AM

Reilly Smith was given Boston's Seventh Player Award before Saturday's game against Philadelphia.

The award goes to the player who performs "above and beyond" expectations and it's voted on by the fans. Smith's production has slowed considerably coming out of the Olympic break, with one goal and six assists in his last 21 games, but he has been a pleasant surprise this campaign. He has 19 goals and 49 points in 78 games during his first year with Boston.
Apr 7 - 9:50 AM

Boston coach Claude Julien still has faith in Reilly Smith.

This, despite the fact that Smith has scored only one goal in the Bruins' last 21 games and has registered only one assist while playing alongside the white hot Patrice Bergeron. "I thought Reilly played well (in Thursday's 3-0 win over Chicago). I liked his game," said Julien. "He was on the puck more, he was creating things, and I thought the pace of his game was better. To me, Reilly took a step in the right direction (Thursday) night. We've got a few weeks to go here and, if he finds his stride like he was finding it (Thursday) night, he'll be OK." If Smith is not OK, look for Julien to move Loui Eriksson up a line and demote Smith to the Bruins' third unit.
Mar 29 - 8:49 AM

Reilly Smith potted his 19th goal of the season on Monday night.

His marker snapped a 15-game goalless drought over which he produced just five assists. Prior to his slump, Smith had a seven-game scoring streak. He has 46 points in 68 contests this year.
Mar 18 - 7:41 AM

As expected, Reilly Smith's production has tailed off since the Olympic break.

He had registered a very impressive 42 points prior to the Sochi Olympics but has managed to record only three assists in nine games since. If you were riding Smith and enjoying his surprise success, it may now be time to cut bait.
Mar 15 - 8:29 AM

Reilly Smith recorded an assist in Boston's 4-2 loss on Saturday.

Smith is now on a three-game point streak, dating back to before the Olympics. The sophomore forward has broken out this season with 18 goals and 44 points in 59 games. Barring an injury, he should end up with 10-15 more points in 2013-14.
Mar 2 - 9:01 AM

Reilly Smith missed Boston's practice Friday due to the flu.

It does not seem serious and the Bruins are hoping Smith will be able to participate in Saturday's practice. It will be interesting to see if Smith holds on to his second-line role after the Olympics are over. Loui Eriksson, who is playing for Sweden and was ticketed to play on the Bruins' second unit, looks to be rounding into form and could re-gain his job at Smith's expense.
Feb 22 - 9:12 AM

Reilly Smith netted his 18th goal of 2013-14 in Tuesday's win over Florida.

He leads the Bruins in goals this season and sits second in points with 40 in 52 games. Boston acquired Smith as part of the Tyler Seguin trade and his excellent play has made up for the disappointing and injury-plagued performance of Loui Eriksson, who was also obtained in the deal with Dallas.
Jan 29 - 8:07 AM

Reilly Smith scored a goal in Saturday's 4-1 win.

Smith has 15 goals and 32 points in 42 games this season. With Tyler Seguin excelling and Loui Eriksson sidelined with a concussion, Smith has been the silver lining for the Bruins in that deal between Boston and Dallas.
Jan 5 - 8:55 AM

Reilly Smith already has career-highs in every offensive category and has surprised just about everybody in the Bruins' organization while becoming the second-leading scorer on the team.

In his mid-season report card, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England gives Smith an A+, the only member of the team to draw such a high grade. Entering today's game against Winnipeg, Smith has 14 goals and 17 assists.
Jan 4 - 9:28 AM

Reilly Smith has at least a point in four of his last five games.

Smith had an assist on Tuesday to close out a phenomenal month for him. He scored nine goals and 14 points in 13 games. We wouldn't count on him playing at that level for another month this season, but he shouldn't regress entirely either. Instead, we're looking for him to record about another 25 points in the second half of the season.
Jan 1 - 8:36 AM

Boston coach Claude Julien believes that Reilly Smith is the real deal.

Smith, who leads the Bruins with 14 goals and is second in scoring with 30 points (three behind David Krejci), has really impressed Julien this season. In fact, Julien believes that Smith's success is in no way a fluke as he has been "a good player from Day One". If for some reason Smith is still available in your pool, pick him up immediately.

Reilly Smith scored two goals for the Bruins as part of a 5-0 drubbing of the Senators on Friday.

Smith's 14 goals on the season have been a pleasant surprise for the Bruins, who always seem to derive significant value from their role players. David Krejci, Jarome Iginla and Brad Marchand all found the back of the net in the victory.
