And I think that's going to be the norm. 3 big names is still a small number though.

Clutterbuck is 25 and perfect fit for their 3rd line's style of game. Better fit than the Matt Read that is rumored to be what Philly is offering. They can 'want' a Voracek (one rumur) or similar value but they'll never get anything close. Lindback fetched two 2nds, Bobrovsky fetched 2nd, this off season there are more goalies available than ever...highly doubt Bernier will return much more.

Well they did fill the Colosseum in Rome on occasion to re-enact water battles. I suppose we could use this to our advantage for a spectacle.

So who you got?

I think the Bruins come out very strong tonight since they were embarrassed giving up 6 goals.

On the other hand, Chicago now knows that the bruins defense is fallable when attacking with speed and when chucking pucks on net. They also have last change. Will be an interesting one to watch, if not entertaining.

Clode is a whiner. And he is falling for the same tricks that Therrien did............just shut up and coach.

Should be fun tonight!!


CHICAGO -- Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien essentially dared the Chicago Blackhawks to try to expose Zdeno Chara in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday at United Center (8 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, RDS).

"If that's what they think, then they should try it again," Julien said.

Julien was responding to a question about comments Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews made Thursday. Chara was on the ice for five goals against in Chicago's 6-5 overtime win in Game 4, and it prompted Toews to say the Blackhawks found a way to "expose" the towering Bruins captain.

"I think maybe at times in the first couple of games we were giving him a little bit too much respect by trying to keep the puck away from him," Toews said. "He's not a guy that we should be afraid of. We should go at him, protect the puck from him, make plays around him and through him.

Julien and Toews probably both could have said a little less. Not that what Toews said was bad or anything, just I would rather they just 'go for Chara' rather than tell him about how they are going to go for him. Might not hurt them at all, but I wouldn't want to give Chara any extra motivation to show up tonight.

Chicago has to keep going to the net. They got away from that and it hurt them. It's not easy doing it with Chara there throwing crazy crosschecks to the face but you have to pay the price to win.

Toews did that last game with fantastic results. Captain Serious just has to keep screening the goalie and good things will happen.

Bingo. Game three they avoided the net like the plague. Wednesday they looked so much better.

Let's just hope Crawford's glove works a little better tonight.

Another bingo from me. Screw the perimeter stuff; crash the net whenever possible and make big Chara beat you down, in the process he'll screen Rask.

Apparently checking players no where near the puck is now legal in the nhl.

If Boston was so capable of picking the corner, while Crawford was weak, the gap between the puck carrier and the defender was even weaker. Boston has always someboyd on the Hawks while the Hawks leave the Bruins way too open
