They were nearly unstoppable, especially the double tip. He only let in one goal which I really thought he should have had, and that was the power play marker by Scott Thornton. He looked like he kind of relaxed for a second after that initial shot. But honestly, that was it; O'Donnell said it himself: "Felix let in five, but I really can't think one he should've had. Whenever we made a mistake, they put it in." I believe almost every goal was the result of some kind of defensive mishap.

The Sharks weren't shooting much either, and when they did it was a quality chance. Potvin made some fantastic saves, too - don't try and ignore that fact.

The problem with blaming the goaltenders is that it's so easy and convenient to do. Please save it for when they actually deserve it.

Glad to see the boys snag that point though. A good game by the 700lb line - Nice to see Murray on the board finally. And I love Thornton, towards the end when he caught that stick in the face, he got himself stitched up quick and was back out on the ice again for that tying goal. A true Bruin. And congrats go out to Moran too!
Potvin played like dog crap. The first goal was a joke....was it deflected, yea about 30 feet before it got to him and it was not going fast, bad goal. The point shot...bad goal. He was asked to stop about 15 shots through two periods and we were tied at 4? Sorry, that is a bad night. He has stolen some wins for us, but tonight we got a point in spite of a horrible game.
