The end was just Pathetic IMO. (I really wana see Pyatt vs Campbell again.. This time Taylor Pyatt. Just to see how Greg Campbell will react and feel how it is to be the small guy in a fight)
B's fans shouldn't call anyone out when it involves Lucic. Lucic came barrelling in to blindside Subban when he was dealing with Marchand's stickwork. Lucy and the Bruin's like to talk about how tough they are... ya right. Lucy won't take anyone on who's actually in his weight class, unless of course he happens to know that guys not a fighter.

Classy moves by the B's at the end of the game. Running players. Hitting players when they're down, defenseless or much smaller.... all this after Pouliot could literally have killed Kreji but let him off the hook.

Not too worried about the loss... weird game with weird bounces.

Brutal game by AK and Gomez... I don't see anyone picking up Gomez, but AK has value and I think its time to move him, he'll score a billion points somewhere else but at this point I don't care, it's not working here. Vancouver or the Kings would be a good place for him.

We desperately need another D.

Spacek is erratic and unpredictable. Weber and Subban are rookies. Wiz is mediocre in his own zone. And Gill is the least mobile player in the league 5 on 5.

Forget this game and GET A D-MAN. (And I don't mean a Todd Simpson type)
I agree. We need a dman first and foremost. If he also happens to be a tough dman, then that's all the better.

We dont need big goons we need tough players ala Moen but with scoring touch. We just gotta play our game and we'll be successful. Our top scorer and two of our best defenseman are out, albeit its not excuse but still.

The overreactions on this board is horrendous and over exaggerated...get it together
I was at a game where Dave Manson challenged the whole Bruins bench after beating the snot out of one of their players. And not one of them moved. It does work.

This team can easily find a couple of spots to add some muscle.

Wonder what happens to the Bruins if Price and Pouliot didn't let up on Thomas and Krejci? They could be down their stud goaltender and their top 2 centers...

Quite the entertainment value tonight.

Perhaps some rivalry renewal.

Thankfully, the identities of these two teams remain unchanged.

Good luck going forward.

i think it's the fact the we have many players that bring nothing to the table. when you can add some sandpaper into the roster while removing some of the dead weight it can only have a positive effect.

There's some overreaction here, does the fact that we dominated the Bruins in most recent match ups not matter? What killed us more than anything else today was the two goals we gave up in the 1st, after that the thugs controlled the game and we got suckered into their gong show.

We could use more size, replacing someone like Pyatt with a bigger guy against big teams couldn't hurt, but if this game shows us anything it's that we need another stay at home defender. The number one reason we lost is because we played non-existent defence.

the TWO teams were cowards at time tonight.

Anyway was entertaining as hell, the best would just have been the same game but with reverse scores.

Bring Clarkson and Allen please.

Well I mean you gotta give them a break here. We only have one "sort of" fighter on our team. They didn't really have a choice. But, they should have stopped swinging when our boys were down. Pretty classless.

I don't think anyone should freak out, but the Bruins are top in the division. So obviously we have been an easier team to beat. You should not take them lightly. There is no magic universal law that states that the Habs have their number.

WTF is your obsession with goons ? If the habs actually played good hockey and Gomez and AK were nowhere this team tonight, they would have won, the PP was absolutely killing... that's the no1 retaliation tool.

I can't believe the Bruins have so much difficulty beating a team missing Markov, Cammaleri and Gorges.

With a few (but important) changes, this team can actually be good enough... but it all starts with MR. 7 million dollars man.

What a night! Very entertaining night, a win would have been good but we're not too far away from Bruins points anyways. Not a big deal. If anything, this has shown we can score multiple goals. But its also shown that our defense was very off tonight. AK and gomez tonight, ouch, they played like ****.
Yea tonight we could have used muscle for the fights. But we won't be playing like this every time, so what's the point? Haven't we learned enough from BGL? What's for sure though, is that Bruins will from now on try to push us around and intimidate us more. We can counter it. We just need to actually help Price next time. If the fights went out of control, I'd say the refs are mostly to blame, but it ain't easy when you have up to 6 players fighting.
White can't bring the defensive play that Pyatt brings? And add the physical play?

The deals are happening.

Not saying PG is going to make a panicked move, but an addressing of some team toughness on the top 6 and back-end is needed regardless after this game.

We have no fighters, but we didn't back down from the goons either. We showed balls and class, they showed a lack of class and cowardliness.

Want some tough guys that can play, not a guy who is in and out of the line up and only plays 2-3 minutes.
