If the Bruins didn't get lucky this year with Tim Thomas, and they were very lucky because he'll never be able to come close to what he did again, then they'd have the same amount of points as us. Likewise, if we had a little bit more lucky on our side, we'd have a few more games in hand.
Actually they don't have to play like the Rangers...the Lucic-Krecji-Horton line is pretty good living in New England I watch a lot of Bruins games...the fact of the matter is that Juliens system no matter where he has been is to roll 4 lines and trap...he gets a lot of grief up here because he doesn't change...with their 0-for the Playoffs PP a lot of people are asking why Seguin isn't at least in for PP time.
BTW there is a reason Lou Lam fired Julien 8 games before the playoffs...
Oh and Tim Thomas would like to paraphrase Mark Twain...the reports of my demise have been greaty exaggerated. I think a lot of people said the same thing about him after he won his FIRST Vezina.
