We're still playing for the division.

This could be the final road game for some of the veterans. Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron will most likely stay home instead of traveling to Washington on Saturday. The Bruins have enough depth to rest their key players before the playoffs begin

I don't see how Hamilton can sit. Makes no sense. We need his offensive creativity. He just scored a goal last game and should be confident. If anything he should not only be playing but he should be being told by the coaches to rush the puck IMO...

Give that kid confidence and he can make a difference I believe. Much like SEGUIN when he was allowed to play VS Tampa and came up big after being benched.

If we get NBCSN, but not NESN+, will the game be blacked out on NBCSN?

fluto has the yeti playing center and kelly playing LW, i dont know if thats an error?

if thats true good on claude trying to get the new guy comfortable, and good on kelly for making that transition.

hopefully kelly still takes most crucial faceoffs, but who knows maybe the yeti another guy thats great on the dot.

edit:im a dope

That was how they played on Sunday. Yeti looked more comfortable in the middle.

At this point..do we even want to win the division? Play an underachieving Rangers team that will be motivated to crank it up for playoffs and Lundqvist or..Toronto. hmm

don't play to lose. Gotta play every game to win and then let things happen the way they happen. Boston should be confident enough to beat NYR. Toronto would be no pushover anyway...

I knew the Flyers were having injury issues this year....but didn't realize how badly:

Here’s the Flyers’ injury list at the moment:

Kimmo Timonen (foot fracture)
Nick Grossmann (concussion)
Bruno Gervais (abdominal muscle tear)
Kent Huskins (concussion)
Chris Pronger (concussion-like symptoms)
Braydon Coburn (shoulder)
Andrej Meszaros (shoulder)
Max Talbot (leg fracture)
Zac Rinaldo (high ankle sprain)
Jody Shelley (hip)
Matt Walker (back / hip)

From here.

Yeah they are really banged up. The B's should beat them handily. IE win by 1 goal.

Looks like all defensemen? Ouch. None of those forwards are relevant except perhaps Rinaldo.

The Bruins' offense (and power play) has no excuse not to light it up tonight. Maybe a banged up opponent is just what they needed to turn things around. They have looked better recently, but haven't been finishing. With a defense like the one Philly is icing, they could get a lot of practice in scoring chances.

Probably why the Philly fans' lament of shoddy defense rings true.

Also, that it's difficult to blame Bryz for their defensive woes this year. He's got almost nothing in front of him, and it's been like that for a decent portion of the year.

Jaromir Jagr opens up in interview

Quote:
Do you want to rest in one of the Bruins' final games?
"If I be healthy, I want to play. I feel more tired when I rest. I have to play all the time. I have to practice a lot. I have to play. My body is kind of different. I'm getting tired when I have rest. I would rather to play every game ... two games. Doubleheader like in baseball! I would feel the best!"

You're a freak, right?
"That's what I told you! Too bad they're not doubleheaders in hockey. I've love it. I would feel a lot better the second game."

He used to go out for a run after playing games, while wearing a weight vest. Hartnell and Giroux apparently were like...so...are we supposed to go with him?

Timonen out, and Bryz in net means this game ought to be a shoe-in for Boston. With the Flyers out of the playoffs that helps both teams, sadly.

I understand the idea foundation behind putting Hamilton on the 9th floor during the playoffs, but I think it will end up being a mistake and Claude will have to change his mind after 1-2 games

Nobody on our defense can control the puck in the offensive zone like he can, if this team can win a cup playing kaberle with sheltered minutes, there's no reason you can't play Hamilton in a similar way. Hamilton is leaps better than Kabs

If anything I'd sit Quaider, kids been struggling with health and consistency all year

I love Jagr's attitude. He really is quite a specimen. I agree about trying to win as many games as possible. I would rather have home ice advantage as long as possible than worrying about who we play in the first round.

Eh, Bryzgalov has been a problem all on his own aside from the D. Even when the team had great performances in his own end, he'd allow between 3-5 goals. He had two games in a row (right before Mason came in) where he put more effort into tying his skates than he did stopping the puck...just some really awful efforts with no attempt to fight for saves or even look through screens.

I really hope we re-sign him. He's such a good teammate and has an unbelievable work ethic. Not to mention he's pretty ****ing good for his age.. He's been absolutely incredible. He's a great guy to have around for all the younger players, a living legend in the locker room and an example on how you should work every day.

Agreed. Take whatever team you get, don't try to get a "worse team". That's how you get surprised and upset. It sucks, like last year, I really wanted the Sens over the Caps. But we have to be confident in our team. I'd say the Rangers and the Leafs are about equal as a challenge. We've played well against the Rangers this year, 1-0-2 with a Gaborik hat-trick and comeback regulation win being those 2 OTLs, and they've been pretty mediocre this year. Lundqvist is the only thing that saves me. I think the Rangers take the 6th seed, though. Islanders or Sens is my guess. We'll just have to see. Seeds 9-6 are so close anything could happen.
