I'm not too worry with the team, I'm sure everyone and their mother (including Claude) know those line are aweful. He's just sending a message to the player to grind it out a little more.

I'm so excited to see Krejci and Jagr togheter, it happen three time tonight and it result in 3 scoring chances.
What message is he sending exactly? That if you score in back to back games you will still be "punished" but if you don't even try you can be on the 1st and 2nd line? His message sucks.

I am going to cut them some slack because of the back to back after giving it some thought.

Like Lucic and hitting; Thornton is only of value when he's hitting/fighting/clawing. He's not done that for months. No, he's not the only problem or the biggest problem but he's partly blameworthy. Tonight, we could've done with a wake up fight. Our PK is good enough to withstand it occasionally and our O could benenfit from it.

Nobodies saying that. Quite the exaggeration.

Most people want just one game with a 60 minute effort. Not asking too much.

Islanders came to win and the Bruins didn't.

Julien using the 3 in 4 excuse too.

Just get through the next 8 games healthy, get everyone back and even the most negative ones will enjoy the Cup parade next June. Or will they find something else to cry about?
Over the remaining games, they should start giving players a game off like they did today with Hamilton.

Both Chara and Seidenberg look like they could use a break.

Let's slip Redden into a game or 2 and see if he can contribute.

Put Jagr with Krejci and Seguin.

I would just like a game where the players aren't constantly turning the puck over.

That tired excuse doesn't fly, Jagr is 40 and has played the same amount of games the Bruins have in the last bit. He looked totally fine.

And for those saying "Well we won 4 of our last 5 ...did you bother to check the stats on those games

No? let me fill you in:

Vs Ottawa: W (3-2) Gave up 47 shots on goal, plenty of good chances

Vs New Jersey: W (1-0) Outshot badly, only goal was a lucky tip-in, if New Jersey has Kovalchuk it's likely a different outcome

@ Montreal: L (3-2) don't even have to explain this one, piss poor effort capped off by an embarrassing last minute power play

Vs Carolina: W (6-2) Game would have been over early if not for Rask and the Canes craptacular goaltending as Carolina was all over them in the 1st, gave up 40 shots again

@ New Jersey: W (5-4) Lousy effort the moment they got a lead, bad defense and surprise surprise they get outshot again. (28-18)

Like it or not, this team is not looking good, the wins are merely an illusion

While I agree to a certain extent, going 2-4 on the 2nd of back to backs is rough, especially when considering how condensed the playoff schedule is. One of the things that I think separates the Bruins from teams like the Blackhawks and Penguins...At some point our boys have to find a way to win despite being tired and overcome some injuries as well

It's an exaggeration because people are being equally ridiculous. That's the point

Islanders are the hottest team in the East
They are the best road team in the East
They were fresh and good to go
Bruins played last night
Bruins have played 3 times in 4 nights.
Bruins are without their two best players (Marchand and Bergeron)

Am I happy? No.. but Jesus Christ. The people here who are like "derp, this is a ONE AND DONE TEAM" are being ridiculous.

its funny because after a loss we have a specific vocal group and we have a differnt one after a win.

some people only come out to play when there is something to compaline about.

I swear I think some people like when the Bruins lose becasue it gives them more ammo.

Happy I enjoy the game and like watching the Bruins win or lose (obviously more when they win).

To be so negitive must really be a downer in life. oh well off to bed tomorrow is another day.

If this is game 1 in the postseason, I'm not sure there's enough time to make all the adjustments necessary.

Postgame sounds like everyone expected to lose. To be sure there are a number of factors, but the effort in some of these games shouldn't be so easily excused.

K. If you say it doesn't fly when who am I to argue?

I bow to your superiority.

Jagr rushed the puck up the ice 3 times in the last 40 seconds, he seems to be in shape to me.

If this team gets healthy, the key will be putting the lines together properly.

I'll agree that comparing them to the Lewis teams is a bit absurd. but at the same time people can't ignore the fact something's wrong

the defense looks lost most nights, lack of effort on offense.

The question i'd be asking, we have the tools to be a powerhouse, why aren't we playing like it?
