GG-your Alexandrov comment isn't clear to me. Have you given up on him for poor play?

I just laugh when I hear the "Maybe we can get a peek at him this year?" line from the usuals who want no one over the age of 24 in the lineup. He's got a lot of work to do. The fifth goal by the Lion Kings was all on him.

Went to the game with kid and had great seats for watching, and a great time overall- the Monarchs do a very good job at this.

THE GAME

Had the Monarchs coach not instituted three passes before taking a shot in the third they could have scored double digit in goals.

I'm not sure if Providence played the Monarchs 10 times they'd win a game- then again my last image is probably clouding this summary. The first 30 minutes were pretty even and Providence actually led 3-2.

Ironically (based on these boards and my thoughts and previous comments) the best two Bruins were Hamill and Colborne.

Hamill played so good he probably could make the Monarchs He scored early by being in the trenches, had another at the 10 minute or so mark of the first ring off the 'inside' of the post; picked up a nice assist on the McDonald goal, and skated well the entire game. If I didn't know better I'd say he was a first round pick.

Colborne- I saw a lot I liked. Absolutely 'has it' when he has the puck. Poised, patient, and smart with it- tonight more than usual in my Big Joe watching. He scored once (by planting self in heavy traffic area and quickly drilling in a fast pass), every time had the puck that I remember made the right play. Skated pretty well, came back, finished his checks, even went out of his way to initiate contact.

My only complaints if forced to come up with something was- is he going to be fast enough (probably will be, because he aint slow) and quick enough to make plays with guys on him a millisecond quicker at the NHL (that will be the test). Certainly has size, hockey smarts/sense, elite hand-eye coordination.

The other area is maybe just me. He seems like a really nice guy, certainly off the ice and his DNA is probably just that. (great, wish it was contageous because he'd be an asset to the world) but on the ice, a couple of times he was pushed by the defenseman after a crease tie up, and he just kinda stood there. No problem. Probably did the right thing- and you are what you are, but I wonder how it will fly around here. May be way off base here and have to much of those Don Cherry take no prisoners/take no **** Bruins thoughts.

He has everything to be a monster on the power play at the next level on the half wall IF he can keep his feet moving (that is probably going to be his biggest concern) because nothing looks worse than a non-engaged 6'6" player who's not overly physical standing around (say what you want about Wheeler, but he's always moving)....I've seen Colborne double digit times now, and obviously Wheeler 200ish, and I'd give Blake the skating, the movement, the desire to get on the puck mover, and Colborne on the hands and stick- but he's still going to need the rest of this year and an off season working on his first 10 feet of quickness.

Caron- he looked closer to Reading than Boston. I'll preface this by saying I believe after Prague and how well he played in Boston at times, this must really suck. Human nature. My kid (who plays, goes to 25 regular season Boston games, another 10 or so Providence, and has two fantasy hockey teams- so she knows this stuff pretty good for a yute) and loves Caron, sadly admitted if she didn't know he was playing he never would have been noticed. She thinks he suffers from the Tuukka, Boychuk syndrome- actually better in the NHL. Does happen- and my first look at him in the AHL to be fair.

Arniel and Sauve- Arniel was ok/solid- hit the post but nothing that jumped out, although I continue to believe he'll be a good NHLer worthy of top 9 minutes. A guy like Claude who leans defensive and wants predictability over possible spectacular skills will love him if he is the Bruins coach next year and beyond. Arniel is more controlled than both Sobotka and Marchand at this level and more consistent overall albeit not electric or noticeable as either.

Sauve didn't stand out much skating or play making, but he was pretty physical- more than I ever thought he'd be. He's just coming back from an injury so if he can stay on the ice, March might be a good time to see where he is.

The defense had a real rough night- especially Bartkowksi and Alexandrov. (I actually thought Penner though was pretty good- he's the one guy who has gotten a lot better the past year) But in fairness to Alexandrov and Bartkowski, the Monarchs were constantly coming with both speed through the neutral zone and with odd man- many 3 on 2 rushes. I see the talent of Alexandrov but he's going to still need time here- made a horrific turnover that led the the 5th goal (Oscar Moeller- who I've seen 3 times and I swear has 3 first stars- why has he not made it?)- he was clearly upset, and next shift still was aggressive in pinching and his play which is a good sign.

Overall they were bad on team defense- a joint effort.

A complete train wreck the last 30 minutes and today if they can put this behind and win, that would be something after last night.

Matt Dalton: made 5 saves on 5 shots.
Cameron Talbot: made 13 saves on 14 shots.

BRUINS OVERALL:

2-4 PK


Being Down 3-1 put a bee in the B's bonnet and came out firing 5 shots all period. lol.

If Murray hasn't lost this team than I don't know what the meaning of losing a team is. (If only Baldy in Boston gave a poop about Providence)

Yeah, even though I like Gothberg, I think this team needs to draft another goalie this year, or maybe sign a College FA; although our recent attempts in that area haven't done much

Will post occasional updates on Providence @ Bridgeport. Starting lineup is Hamill w/Reich and Caron w/Penner and Bartowski on "defense." Dalton in goal. McGrattan/Roussel/Cohen scratched. Providence announcer also said Smith also scratched, guess he didn't get the memo...

Arniel centering Sauve and Ling today...

Alexandrov goal, Bs up 1-0. Hamill and Smotherman (???) assisted.

1-0 after 1st, Reich took a penalty with a few seconds left in the period. Disappointing season from Reich so far.

The Bs have 7 D dressed: Alexandrov, Bartowski, Penner, McIver, Donald, Bodnarchuk and Zimmerman. Interesting to see if the stay at home guys can calm things down after the last 2 games.

Bridgeport ties it up 1-1 on a PP in the 2nd.

PBs have only 10 shots on net after 2.

Reich gets his 6th of the season, Caron and Hamill assist. 2-1 Bs.

Can Cohen play or is he still recovering from the broken hand(?)?

PBruins played very well today - great job by Dalton. Hamill seems to have regained some confidence, two good games in a row. Like the lines, lots of chances. Arniel, Sauve, Ling clicks well. Where is MaGratton? Healthy scratch last three or is he looking elsewhere? Dressed seven D today.
