Lewis had his Mowers. Does Claude have his Bourque?

Same level? No. Good enough to score on an average goalie in the shootout? Sure.
Bourque wasn't chosen to participate in the shootout because he's Ray's kid, as someone suggested. Funny how some fans (not addressed to you, Scotto) seem to think a coach is throwing names into a hat or doing someone a favor or choosing his binky when he picks the shooters. They practice shootouts, they know who's got the best percentages, they know who's struggled (or done well) against particular goalies, they know who's got the hot hand, they know all that stuff. That's the job of a professional coaching staff. Not "hey, who wants to take this shot?"
