God dammit. They better make a trade soon. I can't watch this much longer. No confidence in anything other than the Bergeron line to score on a consistent basis.

Yup.

It may be time to axe Caron as well. He just doesn't have the NHL speed. Id trade him now while he still has some value.

Whatever reason?

They are a deep physical team that works hard and can skate. That's a pretty clear reason to me.

When Lucic actually fore checked he was unstoppable. Too bad he floated for 90 percent of the game

If Krejci can't go against Winnipeg, then it's clear that Peverley will center the top line. Could be interesting. It would not surprise me if Campbell centers the third line.

Well. For those wanting Spooner to be called up.. I don't see how Chia can't grant that wish right now.

Hoping it looked a lot worse than it is for Krejci.

If the B's played like they did in the 3rd they might have actually won. They didn't check at all and when you face against a fast team, you have to. Anyways, I hope Krejci is ok and that it's not a long term injury.

Ill guess shattered kneecap on that one.
Hhe had the knee bent and that means the pad slid below the knee.

And tuukka gets outplayed again in a big game.
Other than that it was an even game.

Vokoun just made the key saves unlike took

Team just doesn't know how to break out of their own zone with any fluidity. Just messy breakouts leading to slow entry. Our skaters never have a jump on their defensemen on the forecheck. Team also doesn't gain the zone with speed with possession.

Doesn't look good the way Krecji left the ice.

Hopefully it is not as bad as it looked; if so, we have to hope that Soderberg is the 2nd coming of Henrik Zetterberg.

Oh yeah, just another game, didn't show much against the Penguins AGAIN....

But hey, as long as we can keep pounding the lowly SE teams that should be fine, right?

You seem to be crying about Chiarelli a lot today.

Please, do tell me what moves he should make instead of just crying about him? I'd love to see these wonderful trades that you have in mind.

Not many teams have made major moves so far. The Bruins don't have the same prospects to trade that other teams will as well.

So much this. When Lucic and Horton are active on the forecheck and banging bodies, they're highly effective. However, they never play this way and that is why they have looked horrible all season long. It is horribly frustrating when you know how good they can be, yet watch this uninspired floating all season long.

Agreed...everything is perimeter too, and they get in the zone and seem to just want to get a faceoff...dump it to the goalie...

Definitely thought I caught a "...**** SAKES!" there when he was going in the door. Can't blame him. That was a little ridiculous. Wouldn't have needed to get he extra attacker if he done what he was supposed to against Vitale, but that's another can of worms...

5 Minutes left in the game. We see The Lucic line for about a minute, the Bergy line for even less, and a conglomeration of the 3/4 lines the rest of the time. Makes sense.

And they also have an awful defense and two mediocre goalies that Boston can't exploit. That was my point. They've usually done a pretty good job containing Pitts offense in the past. The fact that they've scored 3 goals in two game against them this year, none of which came after the 1st period, is cause for concern.

I saw some parts of the game, so maybe I'm wrong in my assessment here, but why don't the Bs play the Penguins physically? Whenever I see the Flyers play the Penguins, they seem to get in their face, and it throws them off. Bruins have the personnel for that sort of game but I didn't see it too much.
