Plekanec is suppose to be great defensively... why should he be afraid to put him against any line?

Rask stoled 3-4 goals Price didn't stole a single one. That's also a factor. Price is not to be blamed for the lost tough 5 horrendous minutes plus some many chances that were missed it was painfull.

The bruins stole that one.

When you get chances, it's typically indicative of a well played game so I can let this slide. Though in games like this, you'd want to get at least a point out of it.

Oh well, win vs Buffalo and this one is forgotten.

Damn, AC is intelligent tonight.. Watch it guys.. It's a rare sight!

Bourque - Pleks - Cole
Pacioretty - Eller - DD
Gallagher - Galchenyuk - Gionta
Prust - White - Moen

How's that?

I'm high on Eller, not sure i'd say he was our best. Bourque played real well, too.

Rask stole that one, nothing to get too upset about.

Looking forward to crushing the Leafs on Saturday.

Eller may be the only skilled center we have with the least bit of size and physicality. Both of our top 2 centers are soft. Our 1st line centerman is under 5'9. Gio is 5'9. Pleks is 5'10 and soft. That's 3 small players in your top 6.

If Eller ever gets traded ahead of DD I'll lose my mind...

I didn't know that Boston without Marchand, Thornton and Paille not playing is now considered a decimated Bruins team... Oh and those 'retarded AHL players' didn't even sniff 7 minutes of TOI so
what the hell are you talking about...

why is everyone saying we dominated? We played great in the first, played ok in the 2nd But could have been way better. We were good defensively in the 2nd but nothing else. The 3rd was an absolute joke. ZERO heart for the final 2 periods. This game is up there with the first game of the yr against the leafs.

Now on to a pissed off Buffalo team who will play a lethargic Habs team.

Don't get me wrong, Julien is an underrated coach but this loss wasn't on Therrien.
Did you notice the line changes CJ made in the third?

They hardly played. Johnson actually made a point midway through the third to mention how little ice time they got.

Galchenyuk: 10:45
Gallagher: 10:59
Prust: 10:11

And wouldn't you know it. Galchenyuk was among our most dangerous forwards. I am completely the opposite and believe we need to unleash this line, or at least, Galchenyuk. Frankly, I am tired of the reliance on no show Cole. He has one or two decent shifts, then sucks all night. Likewise, Gionta was useless. We might have won had the kids played more than our supposed vets.

I really hate Tomas "little girl" Plekanec. Whenever we play bigger teams he disappears. Also Hate HATE David Desharnais.

We need to get bigger. I think its better if we lose and end up last so we pick up Seth Jones. Build around Galchenyuk-Jones-Subban-Price-Pacorietty

I also would like to complain about Gorges, he doesn't handle the puck too well.

We really need to trade for Nick Backstrom of Washington.

LOL People blaming Plek on the first goal should watch the replay.

(He was at fault on the 2nd though.)

I remember only one play when they got stuck in their own end. It was not pretty, but it was mainly Gallagher missing clearing attempts 2 or 3 times. The kid was intimidated with the puck tonight.

I thought the coach did not adapt well. I would have put Prust with Moen and Armstrong just to have a line with more jump physically in the third.

p.s. The guys at L'Anti-Chambre on RDS are idiots.

I'm far from being a Pleks defender but he's not soft, he's our best centre and he performs game in game out. He's just relied upon WAY too much and it deteriorates his game.

In order of good to bad tonight;

Eller
Bourque
Gallagher
Galchenyuk
Desharnais
Pacioretty
Plekanec
Prust
White
Moen
Armstrong
Gionta
Cole

Eller and Bourque with both great, but Eller created stuff with poor linemates and not much quality ice-time. Plekanec was having a great game but his poor backchecking on the Bruins' goals hurt.

Eller had a breakaway, created one, armstrong missed a chance (impossible to miss at that...) created by Eller and he had alot of other great plays.

Bourque? He missed a chance on the side of the net, had 2-3 good shots..And one of his linemate missed the puck...
