-Speaking of taking for granted, it is refreshing to have Kelly back

- Krejci looked like he got hurt but we eventually breathed a sigh of relief. Marchand looked like he got hurt but we eventually breathed a sigh of relief. Unfortunately, The third scare was for real. Hopefully this isn't something that keeps Marchand out for long.
you're not alone. This whole board has taken them for granted since they neutered the canucks PP in that finals series.

5 min PP vs being short handed in the middle of the 3rd on Segs penalty - which one did you feel more confidant about before it started? PP for show, PK for dough. Can't say it enough.

D didn't look this worn out and inept. They took a month to come out of their zone then w/ 11 D to D passes, but they had possession. They didn't routinely cough up pucks all over the place like they are now. Losing way too many battles all over the ice. Back then they dished out more than they took. Now, too often, they take more than they dish out. After a period, this team just looks totally gassed. I worried a/b this team then w/ scoring. Then 2 goals was enough. Now 4 isn't.

No Bergy? Yeti better be the second coming of Petr freakin Foosberg.

Does anyone know what happened to Marchand?
Like have the Bruins had an announcement about his injury or are we in the "Upper body injury" zone right now?
As much as I hate him, you can never ask for a player to be injured.

Thanks in advance

I thought we had a good shot in 2011, that's why I joined HF boards in April 2011, but to be honest they exceeded my expectations...

To have success in the playoffs you need talent, the right chemistry, good health, solid defense, Great goaltending, a little luck.....and 20 guys who are HUNGRY for another Cup, and willing to pay the price!

Whether or not anything can be done about it due to his contract I have no idea I don't follow that stuff, I just watch hockey.

I didn't.

I also didn't see TT standing on his head and giving an historical performance the likes of that haven't been seen in years. Setting multiple P.O records.

That team was a mess because they had no talent (relatively speaking), and relied a lot on Claude's system. A thing of beauty , a perfect storm, a well oiled machine. But Claude's got the pieces now (or more of them anyway), and despite that, the team looks worse IMO. That's troubling.

Not good in my book, more talent, goaltending that's the envy of the league, and they still look like they're apprehensive and attempting to hold on to leads when the don't have to be that team. Yeah we're winning, against who though? The Canes, they're an atrocity and they almost made fools of us. The Devil's, they're two points out of a playoff berth, and they almost squeaked one out on us, after we had a 3 goal lead.

It was all smiles and highfives after weathering some questionable calls and watching the PK shine as usual. By the end of the game it was heads hung low and crushed souls. That's not just a temporary funk, to me it's a mismatch in system vs. roster.

They get it turned around and go deep, all is forgiven. Till then I'm worried.

Maybe them being such a young team in 2011(they still are i know) they were a little hungrier as well. I really hope this is just a slump they are going through and they straighten it out for the playoffs. i mean they are luckily still getting some wins despite their play. I complain now but will forget it all if they go deep in the playoffs.

He got his bell rung pretty good by a dirty blatant elbow from Volchenkov who should be suspended.
Some think it's a concussion, I'm hoping for a less severe injury, but only time will tell.

Not even that. Officially no word. You'll most probably have to wait until tomorrow evening as they have a game in Boston.

Funny quote from Brodeur on the TSN article;
"Them taking penalties cost us the game," said Brodeur, who finished with 13 saves. "We didn't get many chances and they got a penalty shot and scored two goals. That was the big difference in the game."

People realize no team in the NHL play a full 60 except a few games a year even Chicago

Were lucky the bruins play 40 usually some only play 10-20

The year the bruins won the cup they played 2 full 60 min efforts all postseason game 7 vs Tampa n van

Enough has been said on the performances of our penalty killers but I just love how Kelly looks better than before his injury.

Not happy with how well the Devils took boards away and put pressure on our D. Also thought the refs were terrible.

In comparison to recent defensive play, I`ll take last night`s game, progress at least but your right, work to be done that said, stopped watching after Looch`s ugly play.

Had to be one of the strangest games I have seen in a while. That 2nd goal where Looch looked awful handling the puck was it for me, turned the TV off after that one.

Nice to see the pts and wake up in first place, hated to see the Marchand incident, absolutely no other intent other than targeting the head.

Can`t believe it but I love Soupy with Jagr, does all that dirty work. Loads of health/lineup concerns now, let`s hope they all level out before the games really start counting

I'm glad people have gotten over the whole play Khudobin over Rask thing, this game shows why that's a bad idea. He wasn't bad at all, but that was a standard back up performance.

So 5 games or less? Should get a hefty suspension out of that deal I would think. Doesn't get much more blatant does it?

He wasn`t great by any stretch, but he is far from a standard back up.

Easily 5 IMO.

Repeat offender and he had NO intentions to play the puck.
