Frustrating game to watch. Definitely don't miss this feeling.

Yes, John Scott beat the crap out of Shawn Thornton. But I get the feeling that Scott is getting in the heads of several of the fans here. Calls for new enforcers? Saying the B's lack toughness? That's a little extreme.

Let's not forget that the Bruins were still well in control of the game for at least a period and a half after the bout. Lack of physicality or toughness didn't kill them -- two bad, bad penalties by Chara and Lucic did. And from there, the wheels just feel off. Bad defense by the D-Corps, bad positioning/defense by the forwards. Mediocre goaltending. Guys not finishing opportunities.

It was just a recipe for disaster. You gotta give credit to the Sabres for taking advantage of just about every opportunity the Bruins fed to them.

Onto the next game. A date with Phil Kessel will be just what the doctor ordered to get this team back on track.
