Spooner right now is high risk-high reward player, once he learns to make the simple play I believe he will be an NHL caliber player. He took two penalties, one lead to tying goal to send the game to OT. But he scored the 2nd Bruins goal right after St. John's tied it to make it 1-1, on a nice breakaway beating Pasquale backhand five-hole, then roofed a beautiful backhand top-right corner for the only goal in the shoot-out.

Another great chance he had in front of the net with a wide open look he tried this fancy spinning backhand pass when he had a open look for a shot, gotta take those shots in that close and open. Another time on the PP half-wall he kept stickhandling and dangling for about 10 seconds and the defender just closed the gap and forced the turnover, clearing the zone. He still has work to do but the skill-set is evident. I thought he looked better than Burmistrov for St. John's who has been a full-time NHL player for two seasons now.

Caron looked alright, nothing special in his game today. He completely wiffed on a breakaway in the 2nd period, didn't score on his shoot-out attempt. Wasn't overly noticeable. Would like to see him in a more scoring role, perhaps on the top-line with Bourque and Spooner. He spent most of the game on the 3rd line with Cunningham and Florek.

Providence as a group looked confused sometimes, especially on the PP and gaining the offensive zone, like they didn't really know where to be or what to expect their teammates to be doing.

Hanson was called in OT for a dive. Funny thing was the PA announcer said it was 2 minutes for embellishment. I thought diving calls were described by PA announcers as "unsportsmanlike conduct". Maybe this is a change they are testing to crackdown on diving at the NHL level?

Overall great experience and glad I got to see the Baby B's live and in person.
Thanks for the recap/game opinions BruinDust, remember, our old and well missed friend Savvy was also a high risk/reward guy, worked out ok for him but I hear what your saying, even Savvy, from time to time, made the safer play

Pretty accurate post IMO, was also at the game. Was really impressed with Svedberg. As for the burmistrov note, the first two games of the year he was an absolute beast, but ever since he's been showing that he doesn't want to be here, even getting award a star 3rd star in a team win couple weeks back and not even coming out. He's clearly rotted he didn't go back to Russia.

George Street in St. John's is a powerful force and I wonder if it had any effect on the Bruins play today.

I came to the assumption that Boston could care less about us as long as there good in Boston. So cASSidy keeps his job until the contract runs out then we get Dean (the assistant) now.

Typically the PA announcer will say "2 minutes, unsportsmanlike conduct, diving". Embellishment may be the new term, but it's still unsportsmanlike conduct.
