after taking in yesterdays big win. The game monday is huge if we can win. After that we have 2 full days rest at home. If we can use the home crowd and the momentum we gained in the double OT win in game 3 we could be sitting nice before geting some rest before another big home game
For all the regular season discussions about playing with a lead, I am curious if anyone else thought we didn't sit back, shell, turtle, whatever you want to call it, in the 3rd, more than in the previous 5 periods.
I think we did not. Someone posted in the GDT, they thought we did a little. And he may be right and I am fine if we did.
I didn't see us under siege at least. Alzner hinted about opening it up a bit more in a pregame tweet. We can only speculate about playing with a lead in the 3rd, was what he was talking about, though.
I don't think I've seen Dale go into a 3rd full on trapping with only a 1 goal lead. He only does that with 2+ goals above the other team from what I recall.
We have a soft defense. I don't know if Erskine is injured or what, but it was inevitable the punk ass B forwards would be mixing it up with our dmen. I don't think anyone was expecting us to turn the other cheek all series long. With the Pitt series leading the way, I am bummed George and Dale didn't see last night coming. When the refs even up calls and whatnot, or flat out just flip a coin to make calls, you mind as well stand up for yourself. Otherwise you get frustrated and take a dumb penalty anyways. Coin leading the charge out of the trench. Charg.... Ha.
That said, Erskine is the one best suited to stand up to their Neader. Tool that beak of his again. That is his role on our team, take out that type of player. But the Sarge love is unwavering, and it finally caught up to us. But in years past, when Sarge stumbled, his injury was announced, the change made. Let's see what happens this time. Orlov may not be best suited to take on the B's or Luke, but I would pay money to watch him really get a good hit on their muff diving Pinocchio.
Alzner is getting the best of him where it matters, plain and simple. And Lucic is frustrated because of it. Of course he is a god damned baby, he's trying to start crap because he can't get past Karl and John.
Hasn't been for as long as I remember. Easily should have been a PowerPlay as well
yeah I really have no idea why the Bruins have been able to get away with so much crap before and after whistles, and the refs do nothing in Boston, but last night they threw coincident minors around like they were keeping things civil...if anything it made it worse!
The coincident minors just let Lucic know, "If you start something, it will actually benefit your team, by pitting you guys 4-on-4."
So dumb by the officials in my opinion. They let Lucic and Marchand run the calls that game.
