Just finished watching this on DVR. Nice ending.

The game turned on a simple switcheroo: Peverley taking on Lucic's usual relay role (as described by Neely08 on other threads) and passing the puck up to him in stride. I hope Julien takes note. Regardless of effort, Looch simply can't get that kind of speed going if he's prying pucks off the left wall while the other forwards are transitioning.

Bergy !!!

Also good to see Tuukka win that shootout.

The ride home wasn't bad at all.

Now go beat those Habs !!!

Good NIght B's fans !
I was glad for Lucic when he scored a very nice goal tonight. I thought he looked good on Peverley's line.
Was that only Looch's 2nd goal scored at TD Garden this year?

And in the final 30 seconds of OT, with a faceoff in the defensive zone, any coach with a brain is going to have the Selke winner and a great PKer on the ice together.
Umm...yeah. I thought the Bruins pushing.

As I was watching the OT I was a bit surprised at how much the Bruins were going for it vs a div rival. Gave up some odd man breaks against a team that thrives on that. Just caught me off guard, with Coach being Coach. That, and their goalie didn't look to be having the sharpest of nights. Thought SO made sense.

Funny how impressions of OT can differ.

...PS...Anyone else notice it seems like everyone elses shooters are scoring at like 70%?...it's crazy......

Glad we beat the Laffs who are turning into a good team. Hate to have games when the 1st seder runs as late as it did, My oldest had to tell me the final score just as the seder ended.

It's crazy. When he scored that goal, I actually got goosebumps. Not necessarily because of the actual goal itself (although it came off a great rush, and demonstrated some patience to watch the 5 hole for the right time), but because I even felt relief for the guy. He's struggled, I don't think anyone denies that....but you just knew how much scoring that goal meant to him....by extension, the whole team.

Good night.

I'm the biggest Lucic hater there is but I gave a good solid expletive filled yell when he potted that goal Very positive.


That was a great goal.

Yes, you're right, Caron to Pevs, who swoops by at speed.

And reading some earlier posts, I notice Neely08 already broke this down anyhow, so my post was redundant to boot.

I'm getting caught behind the play.

See, that's the kind of dramatic catharsis that's simply not available to bandwagoners. Those of us who sit there night after night and suffer through the slumps can get such a rush out of a goal like that, not just because of how it influences the scoreboard, but because of how it plays into a player's (and an entire team's) epic struggles.

Excellent term. That's exactly it. This is why I mentioned I love your contributions to this board.

It really was a perfect storm type sequence.

Team in a scoring slump, coming off a road loss to a team they've typically dominated....

Then that same team, now in your barn, puts you down 2-0 very quickly....

Indeed, you get a goal back, but you've been there before only to see the futility continue....cognizant you've got your biggest rival coming in two days and the games in hand end tonight....

Then the big oaf, the 6 million dollar whipping boy, beaten around these parts for his "laziness" and cement boots, rushes into the zone, strong on the puck but maintaining the speed on those cement boots, displays such careful stickwork, doesn't panic...and slides it sublimely to where Reimer can't stop it, lighting the lamp.

That was a great sequence for Milan and this team. I knew they were walking away with two after that.

Hard to write it better than that.

Bring on the Habs.

I didn't realize winning in overtime was more valuable than in a shootout

just wondered why Montreal was still ahead of the Bruins in the standings, then dissected the fact that overtime wins are more valuable than shootout wins

On second thought that wasn't meant to put Paille down. He has been pretty great. I've always been a bit of a Paille apologist so I feel vindicad now that he is having such a solid year. He might be one of the best contracts the bruins have

yep, this is what the ROW or regulation and overtime wins tally corresponds to (nhl.com or basically any site with hockey standings these days). i think i still prefer a 3 point system that gives teams more incentive to try to win in regulation / ot

it's only the first tiebreaker, but an important one. i would imagine at least 1 tie within the playoff picture this year gets broken by the ROW count.

Good games. I am actually one of the few leaf fans that hopes for a Bruins vs Leafs playoff match-up, all 4 games this season have been essentially one goal games, and I've loved them.

Solid and pretty good with the puck. He can fill in for Boychuk/McQuaid nicely.

I don't think they were playing not to lose in OT.

I do think they were aggressive with caution and against a team with a lot of speed (Leafs at least in their forward corps have tons of speed) it is important not to lose your man.

Maybe not but it seems to me like they just want to get to the shoot out and lay it all on Tuukka to win it for them and I don't think that's fair to him but JMHO though

They are a competitive team, not yet sure, regardless of where they are in the standings that they are a "good" team. They have an offensively solid top 6, their bottom 6 are bruisers which is great, but we saw just how ineffective some of those guys are when the games start to be free flowing such as last night.

And their D is outright horrific who`s arse has been saved often by Reimer and Scrivens. They have survived by playing a trap game, over the course of this year it`s not uncommon to see this team consistently put up about 6 shots per period.

Our boys have had a few periods like that, but the Leafs are all about the trap but it`s good coaching from Carlyle. Unless he`s willing to go exclusively with his top two lines, he can`t constantly push the play

They are getting better, they are definitely more competitive and tough, but that D, if I were a Leaf fan, and huge uncertainty in goal with lack of experience would leave me more than a touch nervous heading down the stretch.

Now we will see a massive push from teams, let`s just see how they react to it

Toss in a Captain who consistently makes horrific decisions on the back end.....

Even if you do go to a shootout, it isn't all up to your goalie. You still have to score.

All they need is a captain and they will be a solid team. The basement days of depending on Kessel and Phaneuf need to be put behind them.

Carolina also has 3 games in hand.

I think TML will hold onto a playoff spot, and it'll be a feel good story for the league and their fans. Not sure how you take them seriously in the playoffs, but hey, it'd be nice if they drew Pittsburgh or Montreal and gave them some trouble as the Leafs would be playing with house money at that point.
