Go B's!
Seguin isn't the only one who's ripping shots from long range with no traffic in front and shooting from bad angles... the whole team's doing it. I'm not sure it's fair to single Seguin out.

Agreed. My intention is not to single him out, but I feel he is one of the few B's forwards who have the blazing speed who should be buzzing around these flat-footed Caps defenders & taking the puck hard to the net. Holtby has yet to be challenged. There is zero traffic in front, w/ perimiter shots gallore. Marchand Seguin Kelly Peverly need to take the puck to the net, while Lucic & Co. creat traffic. Dirty goals.

See I had the exact opposite feeling the other night. I got nervous the longer and longer it went tied at 0

Why not let Corvo play for them tonight, he and Wideman would make a great pairing. They could be the first D-pairing to get forechecked to death.

I was thinking the same thing "Why not have one of our many plugs run him?"

It would at least bring some chippiness to the series.

Shove some faces into the turnbuckle, Hulk Hogan style. No suspension

Game threes are important for the Bruins....I can't remember them losing a game three and then go on to the next round. We were 4-0 last year in game 3's.

One goal rattles Holtby and he can come apart, a la Carey Price.

I've seen Seguin and Peverley both take the puck wide with speed, only to have nobody to dish it to because nobody is headed for the slot. Or because the slot is jammed up with Caps. Then they take some bad-angle shot or its back to the point for a shot, where Holtby gives a juicy rebound to his own team and on they come again.

They need to take it to the net and cause some havok in the slot and crease.

Thomas's emotions have gotten the better of him against Hartnell in the Winter Classic is one example, however, Holtby will be playing at home in front of a hyped up crowd, hopefully he gets a little off his game and the B's end up with the flood gate game I've been waiting for.
5-2 Bruins, you heard it here first.
All 4 lines crash the net and fight for rebounds.

Funny how the solution is so obvious to us but not the coach and the team. It's quite clear that the Bruins are at their best when they get in front of the net and get dirty and make chances. Defense and goalie have been more than good.
