Fast forward to Game 4 with Moen playing on the line with Gionta and Gomez. Moen was a turnover machine including his mishandling of the pass to him that led to Ryder's game winning goal. With Moen on that line, Gomez and Gionta were -3, their worst performance of the playoffs.

You like to mention the "one goal" over and over again as it related to Game 7. Game 4, however, was the pivotal game that gave Boston all the momentum that they needed. The Bruins would not have overcome a 3 games to 1 deficit.

Darche played well with Gionta and Gomez. Moen played horrible with them. Yet Moen..................which was a coaching decision by Martin.........stayed on that line, even after the Game 4 fiasco.

Moen on that line was a FAIL all season. And it was the biggest Martin FAIL when he returned to that combo in the playoffs.
The Bruins won 3 of their games in OT. Any one of those three would have swung our way and Boston probably loses the series. I don't put much importance on a pivotal for these series. We could have won game 3 as well.
Also, I believe Darche played with those two more than Moen. Maybe you should check the numbers.

Answer this question then.

Who played with Gomez and Gionta in Game 4 when Gomez and Gionta were -3?

Do you have the honesty to answer this question?

And while you are at it, can you look up the video of Ryder's game winning goal? And will you admit that the pass made to Moen in our defensive zone was mishandled by Moen and allowed Ryder to score the game winning goal?

Those answers should not be so tough, eh?

In terms of hockey sense, it isn't even close. In terms of pure skill, he isn't, but overall he's a notch below and universally recognized as the 4th best ever.

Funny how what we already have is #1 so far. I'm starting to think most of our posters are a bunch of small wimpy guys. Where's the fight'n Irish round here!

People tend to take opinions for facts here, careful!

First four plus Chemistry.

Though obviously, some answers would be different if I was looking for a 3rd liner.
