I see the Buffalo game hasn't knocked anyone off the high horse.
Here's hoping for a good game.
Why would it? Bruins more or less dominated the game until the 5on3.
Did people see a different game than I did? Other than Scott's manhandling of Thornton they weren't exactly knocking us all over the ice or anything. They capitalized on their chances and the Bruins didn't. Simple as that.
Not to keep repeating myself but 9 times out of 10, the Bruins win that game against the Sabres. A series of unfortunate events and uncharacteristic brain farts led to their loss.
Being in the 'leaf nation' geographic, what I have seen in the press is not about Kessel so much, but more about the younger guys like Kadri.
Hope the B's are more rested than when playing the sabres, and guys like Seguin and Hamilton coming 'home' to play will inspire them.
Enjoy the game Neely2005, it's a great place to catch a game, I just hope you didn't have to pay for the tickets
I'm in the same situation as you in regards to geography but I'll say the acc is a terrible place to watch a game. The rink is nice but the atmosphere is horrible.
I just want this game to hurry up and start. Never before have I seen a fan base (and certainly not ALL, but enough to make a presence) lose their minds after one dang game.
Are the Bruins going to be targeted? We suddenly need a roster full of enforcers?
I'm pretty sure what makes this Bruins team special is that if one guy falls, the team adapts and trusts in the system. No real superstars, a bunch of very talented guys that are multi-dimensional and successfully so.
That same system won them a Stanley Cup, if I recall correctly. Do you chicken Littles out there think that successful system has been scrapped after one fricking game?
Some of youse need to put on your big boy (or girl) pants.
