The NHL is a ****ing disgrace. The entire post-lockout "new" NHL is basically disposed of every time Lucic steps on the ice. Why the league thinks letting Claude Julien coach a goon squad is more important than having a functioning rulebook is beyond me. Miller's arguably the best goalie in hockey, and he was elbowed in the head at full speed by a proven cheap shot artist and is now out indefinitely. Lucic got 2 minutes and the Bruins got an easy win. Seems fair.

Solid is quite pushing it. At even strength he is useless.

With all due respect for Miller, Enroth has been very solid so far this season. I don't believe it made it an "easy win".

With that said, the hit was cheap as is the standard when it comes to Lucy.

I think we win this one and hope Price gets his first SO of the season. (2-0 habs, PK with a goal on the PP and Pacioretti 5 on 5)

to win we need to keep our speed game and have guys go to the net WITHOUT running the tender. These guys will be uber sensitive on this now, and there isn't a Chara on our team to have them shy away. Especially after the dressing down they got from their coach.

If we manage to score 1st and keep our dicipline, we should win.

Gill being out hurts. Emelin is lost on the ice.

Hope AK is in.

I have a feeling this is going to be an anticlimactic game, 2-1 or 3-1.

I feel bad for Miller, he gets run over and nothing gets called. Lucic really is a piece of ****. I like that he plays with intensity and I like that he's the powerforward type player everyone wants, but you have to draw the line somewhere, and than line is way before running over goalies. Goalies aren't big like players are, they don't need to be able to handle a physical player.

I think Boston has been going around doing whatever they want for too long. And you just know all the Bruins fans are laughing at the "overreaction" from NHL fans for Lucic running over Miller. I don't agree with payback because it's not good for the game but just once I'd like to see Boston at the short end of the stick with this crap. Why doesn't someone run over their goalie and get away with it.

I would never hope for a Bruins player to be injured, it's sadistic to hope for other players' injuries, but let me tell you, if it did happen, I wouldn't care as much as if it happened to a player from another team just because Boston seems to not care for the well-being of the colleagues so why should we care about their players?

He's not lost on the ice, he defaults to playing man coverage because that's how they play on European rinks. When Markov gets back and communicate to him on the defensive side of the puck, he'll be fine.

You, Sir, have a very unhealthy obsession with Alexei Emelin. It's getting weird that every time his name pops up here, within a couple of posts you show up to comment...

I'm the one with the unhealthy obsession with Alexei Emelin? That's gold.

Oh by the way Tyler Myers is a healthy scratch tonight. Looks like Lindy Ruff likes to stifle young players development too.

My thoughts exactly, we give Gill a lot of **** on these boards (is he the new spacegoat?) but a lot of people overlook what he does on the PK and generally on defence.

But then., he doesn't fight and he's slow so he must be useless.

Lost a bit of respect for Gaustad on the Lucic charge...I always thought he would be the perfect 4th line center for the Habs, even Moen (which I like a lot) would have been more agressive than him.
Gionta would have been more aggressive, that team ain't going nowhere.

Miller isn't here to save us like last time against you guys. Hopefully the rest of our team is awake so the game is at least enjoyable for all of us.

Sabres fan here, thanks for the banner. I hope our guys realize they're not playing the Bruins and bottle up that emotion for when they come to our house.

Good luck tonight!

He is even over the course of the last 5 games. Logs 20+ minutes is 12th in all NHL D-men in blocked shots. That is absolutely worthy of solid. In fact solid is a bit of an understatement if anything. That or you have a very strict definition of solid.

Yes good luck. Habs and Sabres always play some good hockey. I hope Miller is alright, sucks to lose players against a bunch of goons

Thanks a lot. Many of us are tired of this kind of antics. The lack of immediate response is even more frustrating, and sadly that's something both teams have in common.
