Getting hit in the nose like that makes you tear up.

Scott is totally useless...Initiated nothing..Not even so much as a face wash or jawing session...Why is he even in your lineup?
Scott played like 3 minutes bro.

See, that's where the debate comes into play. His value is that of a bottom six guy, but is he really a bottom six guy? He's slightly better then the prototypical career AHLer, not skilled enough for the top 6, not defensively and physically savvy for the bottom 6.

Regardless, it's a mutual agreement among every fan that some of the Rangers guys look tired and could use a break. Mitchell can definitely provide temporarily fill-in on the top 6.

It would be nice to win games comfortably (like the Penguins the past few games), so you can rest people during the games (less minutes) who've playing way too many minutes this season (ie. Girardi, McD especially). We're ALWAYS having to block too many shots the entire game, and rely on Hank to make the big saves. This is the recipe for break downs and injuries going into the playoffs. I only hope we have a comfortable lead in the standings, to rest guys the last week of the reg season.

Also, I know the score was tight and no one (especially Scott) wanted to take a stupid penalty that could cost us the game, but it's not normal for Prust to be fighting Lucic, when you just got a guy in Scott that should be handling a guy like Lucic. Either Prust is stupid or has a death wish, Prust is not in the same weight class as Lucic. Also, I know it takes 2 to tango, but I would have sent Scott very early on in the game to send a message to Lucic, that he won't be allowed to do whatever he wanted today. Even if that message was a 2 minute penalty.

He's a sore loser...if the rest of the Bruins were like that they would never lose.

Rangers are the class of the east. Feeling like '94 all over again.

I thought he would at least challenge chara just to how his new team he means business buy he played a soft game. Idk what that was about but I didn't like it. Add that to his horrendous puck handling and he is scary for the wrong reasons

I agree that Thomas was terrible for you guys, but what snipers do we have on this team?! Gaborik is the only one that fits that description and his goal was anything but a snipe.

Stepan's goal was a snipe but in general he's not a sniper

Helluva nice goal though, perfect placement. Thomas had no chance considering his positioning (which would normally have been good but got beat by a perfect shot)

I have no problem with Lucic trying to mix it up with McDonagh at the end of the game, but like many others, take issue with the boarding where he drilled McDonagh's face into the glass. The game had plenty of fights, scrums and hitting (Lucic got drilled twice) without something like that.

Ridiculously intelligent pass by MDZ to set Stepan up for the shot in the perfect position to place it where he did.

That was a great goal all around.

I don't get why Chara gets this reputation as this "Big Bad Dude." He isn't a fighter, he is not overly physical. He is a two way Dman who plays more positional defense than trying to go for big hits(to his credit). I can understand that Orpik, or Pronger has that reputation, but Chara?

Very true. I'm actually just excited to see if he gets a look this season and I will not be let down at all if he needs time to adjust in the ahl.

If they lose Letang though, that REALLY hurts them in the long term. They are very dependent on him considering they are a quick transition team. They also don't really have a great shutdown pair. Also, I've never thought much of Fleury. Guy can get spooked like Luongo. Plus, he is not that great to begin with.
Fleury is IMO overrated.

I agree, the workman on the play was DZ. Regardless, if the goal goes in or not, that was an excellent play by DZ.

There was no luck involved in any of the goals. The Bruins couldn't clear the zone, Stralman throws it on net and with traffic in front, Thomas can't find the puck. Second goal, Hagelin throws it in front from behind and because the Bruins are scrambling, Zanon desperately slides through the crease and deflects it in his own net. On the third, Richards again throws it at the net which Thomas does a good job to save at all, Seidenberg hurriedly tries to throw it around and Gabby poaches. Fourth, was a pure snipe.

Lucky goals come from a bad caroms or egregious misplays of the puck. The Rangers goals came from hard work and actually throwing it on goal.

Love the balance of D minutes this game:
Staal 24:28
McD 22:56
Girardi 21:56
Del Zotto 20:26
Bickel 18:28
Stralman 10:08

I don't think he was ever that highly rated(except for the pedigree). He has the occasional nice game or solid stretch(but a lot of goalies do). I think even most Pens fan agree that he isn't all that.

Last Bruins goal is on Hags sloppy defense..luckily I'll remember his goal also..

But how good is that Seguin kid going to be? Fearless in front of Henke and insane Hagelin like speed on the blades..

I'm a fan...

I don't know if anyone else at the game noticed this, but after the end of game scrum, Lucic skated away across the Rangers center ice logo and spit on it.

I noticed Boyle and I believe Prust yapping at him and pretty sure Boyle was flipping him the bird.

Other Rangers were yapping at him but I didn't notice who else it was.

POS disrespectful jackass = Lucic

In the old days it was a big rivalry, but the advent of divisional play kind of killed it. It'll be non-existent if that stupid new realignment ever goes through.

Did you follow him during the playoffs last season? He plays with a snarl to his game. He may not hit as frequently as similar defensemen but he's very physical in the corners and in front of the net. He's not going to fight very much because he's more valuable to the Bruins on the ice than he is sitting in the box for 5 minutes.

Because we traded for him and he has size. Against a team like the Bruins you need to add size to the line up.

The problem is, who wants to step up and fight a guy who is 6'8" and 270 pounds? In terms of size, you're at an instant disadvantage.

It reminds me a lot of when Boogard was on our team. Often times players were tentative to fight him. And I can't blame them. They're smart. Even if I was a big guy I wouldn't want to go against a guy who is 6'8" and 270LBS.

Lot of hate for Johnny Malkin here - probably deserved, but he isn't without talent, especially on a team short on talent up front. Someone just needs to tell him to stop trying to be Marian Gaborik and try to emulate Brian Boyle.
