I expect to get physically dominated this game.

Theo should put some "DO NOT ENTER" police tape around his net to keep Lucic away.

I see your Bruins player to look at is Shawn Thornton. The guy is a character. Check out http://shawnthorntonsays.tumblr.com/ to see some quotes from him. Btw, it is unknown who has put that website up as he is on record saying a few of the quotes came from the dressing room and its not him.

Here's hoping for a great game tonight. I will be in attendance and cannot wait. I haven't seen much of you guys these season so any tips on who to watch out for?

Thanks
Obviously our first line of Flash - Weiss - Veersteg. I'm expecting a big game from Flash with Thomas in the net. Think back to the first game we played the Devils when he scored on Broduer at the end. Little fake then scores. I have a feeling its going to take something like that to get one by Thomas tonight.

Little head fake, drop the shoulder, go wide then

Boston is really good, almost elite 5 on 5. We'll need to score on the PP. We also need to try to play our game and not get caught off track with what will inevitably be them trying to run Theo or mix things up. We've got enough guys who will hit and fight tonight so I'm not worried. I am worried about being physical around the net. Need Jovo and Guds to have a big game.

Boston is the best team in the league, imo. I think tonight is good measuring stick for where we stand and if we're able to handle the physical play.

Bruin's fan here.

You guys are playing well.

Good Luck (except for against the B's).

I hope for a 5-3 win tonight...B's win but Marco gets a hatty.

Marco is well liked by the Boston fans. It will be nice to see him.

A win tonight should silence a lot of doubters that are still out there regarding our start.

However, I see this going to OT. Shootout win

Ahh yes, good point. I think I've gotten to the point where I've almost forgotten out of my head that we are soo bad in front of our own net. Tonight would be a great time for some of the D to flick the switch and get tough in front of Jose.

Switch on = W
Switch off = L

My(and probably most others') thoughts exactly!
Thank you for doing Erick's usual job of speaking for me!

To be first in the east by night's end would be the best (and only good December 8th) in a looooong time.

If I hear boos from anyone near me I will slap them.

All of the STH near me like Marco. Love the goal face and the win at the Winter Classic a couple of years ago.

I'll point this out again. No way we can be first tonight. Whoever wins between Philly and Pittsburgh will be 1st.

Fully expect the Panthers to come out playing like this guy.



However I hope it's more like this guy here.


Here's to an exciting game between two future division...er...conference rivals.

Umm...sorry for barging in. But how is being the best 5-on-5 team in the NHL for 3 of the past 4 years, this season by a wide margin "almost elite"


Anyway, here's to a great game. I'm looking forward to a bit of a rivalry developing.

Chara & Bergy are going to be on the Weiss line and Marchand's going to be trying to take Versteeg to the box. Marchand, Krejci & Versteeg did a lot of trash talking in the PO's last season. Funny seeing as how Krejci & Versteeg are friends from a while back.

I'm PUMPED for tonight's game! Echoing what others have said, tonight will be the biggest test of the season to date. It won't be easy, but I'm saying 4-3 CATS in OT!

Gizmo, we've passed so many of these "tests", that even if we win tonight, the doubters out there will find the next "test".

We are a house divided tonight...kind of. Dh grew up a Bruins fan, and married a Panther fan. And one of our sons is named Cam....who despite my best efforts, wears Bruins' hockey socks to practices. LOL

I really enjoy watching Tyler Seguin play, but not tonight. Let's hope Theo is pure money tonight, and the D shows up.

Once again, i have work tonight. So i'll be catching the replay when i get home. HUGE GAME. Statement game that means less in terms of points, but would be a massive confidence booster. Beating a great team like the Bruins would really show everyone (including ourselves) that we can hang with the big boys.

Let's make it three in a row!

That's exactly why I believe they're so much better than in years past. They've always been strong at defense and goaltending, but now have a great offense as well. Some people think they can't repeat as Cup Champions, but I'd say it's still very possible.

I didn't notice that. That really makes no sense IMO. Maybe Dineen wants to give him more time to test what he's capable of? From what I know about him isn't much though.
