Bad game. Chalk it up as that and move onto the next one.

Hopefully it is just one or two bad games, because in a 48 game season, you can't afford to play like this for long to start the season and still hope to get a strong seed. I'm confident they'll get it together quick. And with Lundqvist in net, there is no doubt in my mind this team achieves success.

EDIT: And in other news, 40 year old Jaromir Jagr just scored his 2nd goal of the game, tying up the game for the Stars against the Coyotes.

It happened twice, once in the first and once in the third and he just lost it while trying to cut to the middle both times. Basically identical moves. He was really good in traffic for the most part IMO.

The expectations thing might be what has everyone so frustrated with every player on the team. They can't all play flawless hockey every night. It's going to take some time to get rolling, hopefully not much. But we're not the only team that lost today, the Kings got embarrassed in their own barn.

kreider needs to get some time in the 2nd line. I understand he is a rookie but hagelin played as bad as you can play at least kreider plays well with stepan

Not a good team effort tonight.

Better tomorrow, I hope.

It happened a lot more than twice. The dude didn't know what to do with the puck besides his spin move and I guess the play he drew a penalty. Severely underwhelmed with his play tonight.

He was more noticeable than Gabby, though, and would've probably been better than Richie if not for the sick snipe.

Why should we expect it when the Bruins came out and looked in midseason form.

Sick of lowering my expectations for this team.

How are the Bruins in midseason form both in luck and game wise and rangers are in camp form?
Maybe cause rangers have lots of new faces? Sign Gomez for league minimum with bonuses lol Richards at times reminds me of him which is scary.

Got any examples or are you just throwing it out there because that's what you want to think happened? He lost the puck cleanly while trying to make a move on the defender TWICE all night, where it just hopped off his stick. He was very good in traffic the entire game.

Yes its only one game but fans have a right to be concerned. In a 48 game season in a tough division there isnt time to screw around. The flowerplay is still here and the faceoffs are still bad. The biggets thing is that teh rangers looked soft tonight

Not to make excuses but Boston has basically the same team as the past two years. They know their system and have chemistry. We have many new faces coming in, chemistry will take time. Also, Torts is going to have to be willing to tinker with the system. We will not be able to play the same ultra defensive game without Prust, Dubi, Anisimov and Feds.

Bruins didn't look like they were in mid-season form to me, sure they were better than the Rangers, but they weren't smooth. The big difference IMO is that the Bruins were for the most part playing on settled lines from last season so they knew what each other were doing, the Rangers forwards had no idea

I would be. One bad game does not a season make.

Gomez signed with the Sharks and would be horrific on this team. Richards has some nights where he can't get anything going and tonight was one of them IMO and he still had a goal.

Watch him handle the puck. I'm not just talking about the two really bad times where the puck just hopped off his stick. Tentative passes to dudes who would then end up forcing plays because they were in bad positions.

He didn't know what to do when the puck was on his stick.

I find it comical that some of you guys are giving up on the season because of the first game of a lockout shortened season..what a joke

True. I think the only changes for the Bruins were Rask for Thomas, Hamilton for Corvo and Bourque for Pouliot.

Boston looked much better than the Rangers all night. I'm not sure why Tortorella started juggling the lines almost immediately. I think it was still 0-0 when he started mixing guys up.
