The Good:
We score 6 goals, how often does that happen?
We won 3 fights (if you count Price beating Thomas)
We didn't back down, despite being outmuscled
Bruins fans are clearly mad

The Bad:
We give up 8 goals
Our old Czech defensemen get beaten up, meaning we'll likely see Picard tomorrow
Bruins fans irritate me

The Ugly:
Pyatt and Krejci's faces after their fights

Really, the "manhandling" wasn't as bad as it looked. Most of Boston's supposed "physical dominance" came in that one altercation with our noted pugilists: Hamrlik, Spacek, and Pyatt. The rest of the time, it was evenly matched. We still had a guy like Wizniewski out there who could've fought someone.

As people have mentioned, we have won 3 of 4 games against these guys. There's a reason there's so much talk about this game: because games like these rarely happen. I don't think we'll be seeing a similar game to this in March.

Still, I'd like to see the team acquire some toughness either by trade or by calling up a guy like White. We don't need 5 Boogaard's out there, but a guy who can play well and fight would be great.
