There will be alot of hustle and bustle today so a pre-game thread seemed appropriate, given the recent twitter comments and news articles

Just lurking, I swear I'm not here as the Canucks Defender Squad. I just wanted to say your kid is effing adorable.

Back to the shadows.

There are a few of us, I promise.

Usually, hyped up games disappoint in living up to the hype...... this one might turn out to be an exception.

FTF: Vancouver is the club that has to prove something..

I really wish those "few" were the one`s who pop on here for a solid, knowledgeable and intelligent hockey talk such as yourself, instead...........well, I won`t go there, you know the rest;)

Hey I hear you. If you can't be constructive and polite with your comments, don't post in other teams boards. We've had a couple really great Bruins fans pop over to our board. We all love the sport, and if you don't like what your reading, do yourself a favour and bow out.

This is my first trip to Boston, I'm going to see the game. I'm super excited.

It`s the main reason why I imposed a personal rule about not "contributing" when I go to another teams site (which I often do to find our more about that team). It`s far too easy to get caught up in a mess and it isn`t worth it.

Boston is amazing. Top 3 favourite cities. Have fun, should be one of the best games of the year!

Good on you. No one should have to defend their team to an opponent in their own boards, you know what I mean?

That said, I'm looking forward to an exciting game. Two big powerhouses are always exciting to watch, former Stanley Cup Finals teams or not. I just hope for no major injuries on either side, and that hopefully the matinee game isn't going to mess with the Bruins' or Canucks' internal clocks.

I hear Marchand may be out with the flu, but is likely a game-time decision. Both teams are missing a Top 6 winger (Vancouver is still missing Booth with a knee injury, should be back soon), so I'm really interested to see what the game-plans are.

Yeah, I've been googling pictures ever since I got gifted the tickets (early birthday/Christmas present) and I'm really excited to see the history and sights. Despite what some Vancouver fans think, I've heard that the majority of Bruins fans in the Garden are really great and won't be TOO heckling as long as you respect you're the minority.

But hey, Happy Birthday to me (today). Can't ask for a better way to spend it.

Marchand didn`t play last night either against the Flames, his 2nd line replacement was Pouliot (who`s started to look very good in the last month) and all he did was play a very assertive game and pick up 3 assists. I can`t see Marchand missing this tilt, the little bugger lives for these kinds of games:)

Not that he`s going to do that each game, but as far as the forward corps go, this team is deep, injuries (gawd forbid) on the back end leave me concerned but our GM has loads of cap space to add someone if need be.

Yeah, as much as I didn't like Marchand during the finals, I really wanna see him play tomorrow. Guy just ups it to an entirely different level in these type of games. I think the reffing will be a bit tighter than Finals since its RS, but he's obviously proven he's not just a 'rat'. He's that guy I love to hate, but would love him on my team (kind of like Burrows, but that's just my personal opinion).

I like what Vancouver did this year by adding some great forward depth with Booth and other players have been stepping it up a lot. No one expected Raymond to come back after 4 months off and play like he is now, it's quite an inspirational thing. I can see why Boston was so successful last year with having great depth. With Hodgson's breakout year so far (total surprise) our third line is quite good. Maybe not on the same level as Kelly's line defensively, but they're a solid offensive contributor instead of a pure defensive line.

Hoping Schneider gets the start in B-Town. Not because Lu hasn't been great (he has), but Ginger Bricks only gets to play in his hometown once in awhile and I think it would be great for his family to see him play at home.

If Marchand wasn`t a Bruin, whichever team he played for, he`d be the most hated guy here;) I`m not always fond of his on ice acts from time to time, but again, being a Bruin fan, I both cringe and smirk when I watch him;)

Ginger Bricks, that`s a good one

The one aspect of the Nucks that will be tested is their committment to one another in the form of team toughness, do they have one another`s backs, with the Bruins, it`s almost like that`s the first thing drilled into their heads, there isn`t one player in that lineup who wouldn`t take a hit, dive to block a shot, drop the mitts for his teammate.

Always be proud of your team, and the players on it. It doesn't matter what others think, as long as you love to watch them.

Definitely looking forward to seeing homeboy Lucic, he's one of my favourites in the league. When I went to Game 2 during the finals, he signed my Stanley Cup program, was a really great thing for him to do, especially since the security was so tight. Thomas, too. Its always great to see that, especially since I'm not a Boston fan (or hater), take the time to talk to people and be friendly.

Team toughness has improved, though its nowhere near Boston's level, but baby steps. Vancouver can't play like the Bruins, but they've definitely been more 'tough' than last year. Still a bit to go.

Don't let the few fans that say nasty crap sour you view on the fan base. The wife and I got heckled in Toronto along with a beer bottle thrown at us. There's dumb fans in every fanbase

Where you're sitting will have a lot to do with how much crap you get. I can guarantee you'll have at least a bit of heckling coming your way, but if you're in the lower bowl you won't hear much. Up in the balcony is where it gets interesting, but for the most part it really shouldn't be too bad.

I can't wait, I hope we we do exactly what we did to them last year in the playoffs at the Garden. Destroy them

Let's Go Bruins! :yo:

TMac21 01-06-2012 07:46 AM

I would love to be in Boston tomorrow morning to go to this game...so jealous of those who get to go.

Well...if you were here for a Blue Jackets game and you were rockin' yer Nash jersey you'd probly enjoy yourself with a little good-natured ribbing thrown in. If you wear a 'Nucks jersey on Saturday, you may be more than mildly heckled, especially if you sit up where all the fun happens. The Finals was a pretty emotional series for the fans around here, and memories get sharp and long when it comes to the hockey. I'd say it's more likely you'll have a good time and be treated to some endurable special attention at the Garden, but have your tougher skin ready. You'll definitely hear it from the locals.

Happy Birthday!

I'm not saying this to be rude or anything, but you're going to be heckled very badly, or worse. I don't think anyone would start a physical altercation, but I can easily see it escalating to that point depending on how the game is turning out.

Ultimately, it's all up to you how far it gets taken. It's easier said than done, but you'll have to ignore the d-bags that will undoubtedly be out in full force tomorrow afternoon, and just keep to yourself.

Boston has a very hit or miss crowd in all aspects. Some nights it's silent, others it is chaotic. Some crowds and sections will respect everyone wearing a different jersey, others are immediately hostile. It really could go either way. I've dealt with my fair share of good/bad crowds in a few different arenas, and Boston is up there with both the best.....and worst of em.

No offense, but you are insane. I would keep the Nucks gear in the hotel room dresser and just go and enjoy the game. I think it's going to be merciless there tomorrow...not saying you are going to get beat up, but everyone is going to have something to say, and we all have our boiling points.
