A point on the road against the Bruins is a good thing. The way we allowed them back into the game in the 3rd and OT is not. Failing to pick up the defenseman coming into the zone led to their first goal. Not taking the passing lane away with Lucic on the boards their second. Fisher going for the hit and skating past Marchand the GWG. Another three ES goals allowed ... one of the most glaring issues the team faces right now.

How this team plays Saturday is important. They just faced one of the better home teams (17-4-2 now) in the league and escaped with a point in spite of the inconsistencies of this season. If they play well against the Panthers, there is something to build upon. If this becomes the start of another 5+ game losing streak, it's time for leadership at all levels to take a hit ... both on the ice and behind the bench.


And to think that I get called a pollyanna.
