I hope I'm wrong, but I see us getting destroyed tonight. Bruins are a very good team and we never play them good.

Hope they packed the KY.

I'd be happy if we walked away with even a point.

Sit McDonald for Boulton and move Cizikas up to the third line.

And obviously sit Finley for Hickey.

I really hope the coaching staff sees some sense and drops Finley. Guy's a total pylon.

He isnt really that bad he knows what he is doing but he is just a little slow, balance issues. If he knew how to play better position to make up for him being slow he would be a good D

I don't agree with sitting McDonald. He's a hard worker and that third line connects very well.

Instead, though it is unlikely to happen, sit Reasoner for Boulton and moves Cizikas to center.

Look at the bright side you have DP generating a goal for us.

Well people here might get their wish. If Finley dresses tonight and takes on thorton or Chara he might be on the IR for a while he doesnt have the balance to hang with them. My god Boston has a tough team. Chara Thorton, Lucic, Mcquaid, everyone on their team can either fight or is willing to

I am going to call DP with the 3-0 shutout tonite in his first step to be comeback player of the year (I don't believe it for a second in my wildest dreams but if he does I will get to pat myself on the back and if he doesn't I will claim temporary insanity).

If we are down by that much, DP will be kept in to rest Nabby... no use in wasting Nabby on a lost cause.

As always, I'm hoping for a solid performance by DP (60 minutes, no injury).

Ha, from your lips to Satan's pointed ears!

I don't know what to expect tonight. If they start tonight's game like they did last night's game, forget it. They'll surrender the lead early and won't get it back against the Bruins like they did the Leafs. They need a 60 minute effort tonight if they want a chance to win.

Hoping to see Hickey or Martinek replacing Finley in the line-up tonight.

Bruins looked like complete crap vs the Rags the other night and their bottom pairing of defensemen are complete traffic cones. I think we can win...minus the DP factor ofcourse.

IDK but I hope so although a tough game to beak him in with... only three games in but so far 2 out of 3 of the waiver pickups who have played are looking pretty good.. and that ain't bad.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Dipietro start this game, and Im not against it. Give him a shot to play a game, see how he does and rest Nabokov at the same time.

I think we have a good shot to win this game, unlike what most people think actually. The team has been so good the last two games that I think we will put up 4+ goals again on the board and it should be enough.

They didn't play well the first period, but after that they looked really good.

I think this game is winnable. Boston will overlook the NYI, while the Isles, fighting for respect won't overlook Boston.

I was thinking that, I swear

That's the ideal move to make.

I am certainly not saying that Nabby is not our #1 goalie in the long run this season or that Dipi will play well tonight, but people are acting like Nabby has been standing on his head so far early this season. The guy has given up 7 goals in our two WINS, including several very weak goals. I do not have any problem with giving Rick a chance to get in net and see what he does.

This is going to be rough for us. I see us having a 1 goal lead at some point in the 2nd only to be worn down and lose like 4-2. But let's hope i'm surprised!

JT with his 1st goal of the season, Grabner with the other.
