Well, we beat them both times here last year, so lets hope!

I'm calling it now. This is the game The Jets get completely UNCLOGGED BABY! The scorers will be scoring. The defenders will be defending! Pavs will be a human puck vacuum in net. 6-3 Jets! Book IT!

Yes because the Bruins are so easy to score against with their tiny defense, soft forwards and weak goal-tending

Best thing about tomorrow is I am taking my 4 year old son so I won't be drinking and swearing if we get tuned

Looking forward to the game.....win lose or draw Boston brings the best out in us for some reason

In retrospect they actually didn't play all that poorly yesterday.

Imagine 1 or 2 of those missed shots went in. People would be clamoring about how well we played.

Bad 1st period, very good 2nd, decent 3rd was how I saw the game.

Hold the Bruins to two or less and we may have a chance.

Redmond's turn for the press box, he's been bad in the last 4

check to see if Joke-in has a pulse after the pre game skate

The conference basement is cramped. The Jets are in 12th but also tied for last. I guess that's a positive, right... guys... right?

Remember when we were 1 point out of 1st in the division. Those were good days.

Don't worry guys, I'm going to this game and I'm 2-0 at the MTS Centre with Pavelec getting shutouts both times. We're going to win.

Exactly how I felt about last night. Are people forgetting that the Penguins are, you know, good?

There seems to be this ingrained mentality (and I include myself in this) that the Jets are expected to win each and every home game; I strongly doubt there would be this much consternation if the Jets played a game like this in Pittsburgh. Know what the Jets home record has been since March 18th of last season? 3-7-1. They've actually had a better road record over that span, at 5-6-2.

Obviously the MTS Centre makes a difference, but it's not nearly as huge as the media makes it out to be. IMO, the brilliant home record we had last year was the perfect storm of circumstances. Extended home stretches that spanned for two weeks at times, visitors coming in on the second game of back-to-backs, and probably a bit of unfamiliarity with the rink and how loud it could get.

Okay, sorry for that tangential rant. Let's rock the house and let the Bruins know they're in our barn!

I blame it on the fact that I was out and not watching.

Even the GDT looked uninspired.

The bruins are solid. Hopefully chevy and chipman take notice. This is a team that wins with systems and character. Over the years this team has dumped a ton of talent in exchange for character and its payed dividends. Look at Peverley for Stuart\Wheeler, who trades 2 very good players for a grinder\character guy. They do! It doesnt matter what your name is, if you act up, you are gone. If you dont perform you are in the press box. Weve got about 15 guys who wouldnt last a week in boston.

Gameplan: Grind their forwards into the ground; hit anything that moves, zebras too...we owe them a few anyway.
We need Buffy in Viking mode again, he is the best when he gets his angry face and start chucking men around the ice like they are children.

Get Peluso to play out when Buff is out, and get both of them to park in front of the net.
Even Cro-Chara would have difficulties with that.

I want to see the total destruction of the Bruins, I want blowout hockey...I want....dare I say it....

THE FLYING W!

This would be the medicine they need.

Calling 6-1 Jets

Oh and Buff gets the face mush hit on Marchand…no injuries to him, just a solid glass face mush with a photographer on hand to get the shot…I want that picture!


Chances are we will be beaten like a redheaded stepchild, but I have to hope right?

Jokes side, we need is a little more accuracy for shots on net, and we could easily turn this around. Won't be the cure-all, but it definitely won't hurt.

I guess there is no easy way out of the current state of the team. We'll just have to get accustomed to sitting in the middle while the balance of the league plays Cracker on us.

I am trying to be optimistic, so here goes.

For some reason, certain teams seem to play other teams very well. Could be systems, players, or built up confidence. The Jets always have a whale of a game against Boston, win or lose.

I'm just hoping for some positive vibes being built up in this one. Jokinen has to score one day... right? Right???

For some reason, I can't remember Jokinen ever hitting the net with a shot. So I wouldn't count on it.

I think Fehr and Nino proved last season that luck doesn't always regress to the norm.

Sorry to say. It hasn't been due to lack of skill or effort, just poor luck, but it's not guaranteed to equalize.
