Damn Pacioretty is really having a terrible game... again
He's having one of those good/bad games. Makes some really good plays, then some bad ones cuz he's trying to do too much. Stared the game with a big hit too. That pass to Gally could have been better since he didn't have control of the puck before passing it, he just slapped it.
Is the new plan to flip in into the air either out of the rink or for an icing?
Just win is all I ask. Clearly the Tampa game didn't do anything because they were just snakebitten and Carey did the rest. That same effort got us pasted 5-1 by the Caps. A win would give us a morale boost and hopefully we'd view the next 2 games as playoff tune-ups considering the buildings and rivals will be intense. Lose tonight and not only are we looking out of answers for the post-season, we'll also have almost no shot at the division (would have to beat Jets in desperation mode then Toronto while having Boston lose 2 of their last 4 which is possible considering the Caps, Flyers and Sens pose a challenge to a slumping- but unlike us not freefalling- Bruins team. But we'll fail to hold up our end of the bargain at this pace). The way the Habs are going, maybe they used up their karma in all those wins where we were trailing by 1 or 2 and came back Winning a series or not, Bergevin's directives are to get stronger on D, bulk up the forward ranks and bring some general toughness though not necessarily goons.
