i'm switching back and forth between our snoozefest and bos/ buffalo. the b's have scored 30 goals in their last 5 games. we can ***** and moan about their goonery and how we've won 2 vs them this year when they were struggling. that team just goes to the ****ing net. they are dirty, intimidating and run goalies and it works - they have a cup to prove it. and watching buffalo tonight, they too have no answer to it. miller run over, kaleta quiet like a mouse...fluke or not, the two dummies running the habs are going to have to somehow realize the cup still runs through boston - for now and moen and maybe white someday just isn't going to cut it
Very true. They haven't drafted a ton more offensive talent than us in recent years but did get some gems and then their future was brightened when Burke came along and handed them three future prospects for Kessel. We've just let go way more of it than they did (Sergei, Grabo, Lats, Dagostini, Ribeiro). I'd love it if we were built like the Bruins, minus the insane goonery that they seem to pull at times.
If you read this thread without watching the game you'd never realize the Habs have outshot them and had the majority of puck possession.
True enough. Comments aren't accurately reflecting the game. We work hard but no finish and we don't have Mike Smith to whiff tonight. It's Pekka Rinne, maybe the league's best goalie. Goals don't come easy tonight and we have our standard 1 goal.
Nashville is a good team and a place where we usually lose so it's not a displeasing showing thus far. And making me happier than that is seeing Ottawa beating the Leafs (though it'd keep us in last in the division but with 2 games in hand) and hey even seeing Pittsburgh losing is good too. Oh well, gotta hold on to something right?
