Also this core bruins team tends to take games off and conserve energy....look at 08-09 one of the best regular season teams ever and they pretty much went into cruise control in February just like last years team and this year they our already going to the playoffs I think they our picking there spots they know they can turn it on and off when they want I don't think they will take a full month off like years past but a few games here and there

They our 17-4-3 right now and 4-2-1 this month I see them finishing march at 6-1-2 getting them to 23-5-5 with 15 left

I think I'll chalk this one up to fatigue. 3rd game in 4 nights, with travel, I guess they didn't get into pitt until 3am. The night before they went to a SO.

It is what it is, the ran out of gas. I'm not OK with blowing another 3rd period lead, but those are not common mistakes that this team makes. They were drained and they are better than that.

In all of their losses this year they ended up beating themselves.

Thank you for that. There were positives in that loss last night. Take them and move on. Not many teams keep Crosby off the scoreboard right now - no points for him at least not even in the 5 on 3.

I think this is the worst part of that blown lead - the boys killed that huge 5 on 3 to start off the period.

That mythical leadership thing. This is a veteran team now,what's needed is always more talent.

Krejci is only slow because his line mates hold hum back. At the game the other night, can not believe how slow and lackadaisecle Looch can be. When he is on-he is on, but that is against the bigger slower teams when he is banging bodies. Krejci needs a couple of skill guys on his line. Move looch to 3rd line and bring down Caron to the new 2nd line, would't hurt to try something this line needs speed.

Did Brick (or post game show) ever answer definitively as to why Campbell was chosen to be in the box at 5 on 3?? Is there actually a rule that states a skater on the ice at moment of goalie infraction has to serve it?

My biggest problem is how bad looch can be with his decision making at times. I have seen him give the puck away time after time after time. He frequently kills plays with his passing and has just not been putting himself in positions that allow DK to get him the puck. I do love the guy, but he drives me nuts every season when he goes through these stretches of uselessness.
DK has slowed down but has been producing points of late, his line mates have both been disasters...Horton is in one of his "I can't score in an open net " funks and as for looch...refer to the above paragraph.
Hopefully they find their games soon here...season is pretty short.

I was working last night so didn't see the game but overall I don't think this team lacks the killer instinct.A few guys seem to be struggling lately[Lucic,Horton] but I do believe this team's mindset is significantly better than last year's.

That's usually the case, yes.

The Bruins could learn something from Toronto's approach against the Penguins.



That was just after JVR put a hard clean hit on Malkin....which is why Malkin missed the Bruins game last night.


The Bruins just can't be bothered with that kind of stuff. I think I've seen maybe two or three big hits from the Bruins all year. I wouldn't be surprised with another first round exit from the Bruins unless there are a few moves made.

I think it could be a mix of both conserving energy/floating and running out of gas.

The d-men are possibly running out of gas. The puck has been in our defensize zone a lot lately so they had to work a lot. And most of them have played every game so far this season.

On the other hand I just don't see how the forwards could be running out of gas the way they are playing and the way the coach splits time amongst all 4 lines. The Bergy line is as active as any other line in the league and yet they are still looking speedy and carrying the team. If that line does not run out of gas, but our other lines do, we have a big problem. As for the goalies, I don't think the coach is overusing Rask so I don't think they are running out of gas neither.

To make it short :

dmen : may have been out of gas
goalies : not running out of gas but need some help
forwards : floating/conserving energy

I'm sorry, I didn't realize that leadership was just a myth.

Only the third of the season.

Some teams have had six already.

Just in case nobody answered you:

"27.1 Minor Penalty to Goalkeeper – A goalkeeper shall not be sent to the penalty bench for an offense which incurs a minor penalty, but instead, the minor penalty shall be served by another member of his team who was on the ice when the offense was committed. This player is to be designated by the Manager or Coach of the offending team through the playing Captain and such substitute shall not be changed."

EDIT: Someone did (sooshii)...
