Got a feeling Hossa will finally put one in.

Bickell has continued his solid play, though didn't see him being used too much/given the puck.

Bruins capitalize off of bounces and turnovers. That's how they might win here. Krug won't be playing and hasn't for awhile so boston playing a D short. Hopefully that causes a mental mistake. Would be nice if Sharp and Kane were able to get some more shots off. Have to say, Chicago makes a bruins game seem interesting. Great one touch plays, stickwork. Our homeboy has to hold the fort from here on out. I would imagine he hates the bruins (though cannot confirm he grew up a Habs fan).

I would say that the answer to your question would be YES!!
Yeah we have him to thank for that excellent call on Zibanejad. He should be in line to replace Sepp Blatter.

Once the Hawks started playing their game and not trying to out muscle the Bruins they looked very good and were far more effective.

Markov was unfortunately almost never present under Martin. PK was our only bright star.

But essentially, like the Bruins, we focused on collapsing in front of our net, blocking passing lanes, keeping shots on the perimeter, and having a fast counter attack.
Boston just have the right players to play that system, and they've had time to perfect it over the years.
Exactly, this system is very close to Jacques Martins but Boston has the players to play it till perfection.

Agreed, Hossa for the winner. He's been the best player on either team tonight, he's due.

Edit......The delay is about 5 seconds. I can tell you who scores the winning goal before you see it. (Just kidding)

I'll also go with less 10 minutes for a goal.

The Ranger's win was in OT I think.

You just know if the Bruins win that little POS Marchand will be involved.

Tony Esposito has looked good tonight, whitesnake, don't you think? Hodge's goal wasn't his fault.

A DMan will score the winning goal.

And it will deflect off of an opposing player's body.

Bruins are extremely dangerous in the counter-attack and somehow, you feel Chicago is doing everything they can to give them those counter-attacks...all those wide shots...

Joel Ward eliminated them last year in OT.

Thank god there are no official stats like in soccer as far as shots in direction on net...'cause with those deflected shots, Bruins would be at 200 against them per game...

Here's an exemple why you don't really believe in Crawford....That should have been an easy glove save.
