Me too. I'm nervous about the injury though. First we all thought concussion, then the random report came out about his vision or something, and now with very little information I can't help but fear the worst: concussion.

McQuaid is no superstar, but he's about as consistent as you'll find on this team and he plays safe. Give me a safety first guy over a horrible risk taker any day!

This. McQuaid is one of my favorite players, just embodies what it means to be a "Big Bad Bruin". I really hope he's back soon, Game 2 would be great.

Not sure if this has been mentioned... the EA Sports simulation has the B's sweeping the Caps.

..This time around, EA doesn't see much room for upsets. In the Eastern Conference, the Rangers and Bruins both advance comfortably, defeating the Senators and Capitals in five and four games, respectively. In the West, Vancouver and St. Louis both advanced in the simulation, but the path wasn't quite as smooth as it was for the top two seeds in the other conference. The Kings and Sharks both last six games before bowing out to the higher seeds...

It did predict the Nucks winning, I don't know how many games. It's 13 for 15 in predicting series though. Not a terrible track record.

Darth needs that Boychuk superhuman healing powers to work on him because the longer Corvi plays, the more turn overs, and goals scored on us.


Corvo curse lives on.

I have the Caps coming out of this series... This isn't an arrogant Bruins fan.

agree to disagree, but the numbers, and quality of competition, and my eyes, tell me he is a #1 d-man. now, his partners....not so much.

Actually guys, the ea sports simulator predicted the bruins to win in 7 games when the playoffs first started. I don't have a link right now but I distinctly remember that

With Mcquaid out tomorrow and possibly Mcquaid as well, we may have to suffer a loss to start the series. But here's hoping the boys can pound them and spend a lot of time in their zone. We'll need our forwards to come up big, and we need Krejci and bergeron's line to start finishing on all their chances

I thought I remembered that too.

I also remember it picked Chicago to win the cup before any playoff games had started the year before. It's accuracy is surprisingly good.

I love watching Adam. I love how disappointed he looks when no one will "go" with him. He is a tough kid...with a baby face

He looked hurt that night he went down. He didn't get up very quickly. When he went by us he had a bloody towel over his eye and forehead.

We were happy to hear it was JUST a cut above the eye but I have to wonder what it really is.

Just wanted to stop by and say thanks for all the support you guys have been showing for the Kings! I had a feeling most Bruins fans would be rooting for the Kings, and I was not disappointed.

I went to school in Maine for 7 years so I've adopted the Bruins as my second team. I was rooting for you guys all the way through the playoffs last year after the Kings lost. Good luck against the Caps! Hopefully we meet in the Finals.
