I would agree with this.

I am really pulling for Looch to have a great game tonight. He needs it for his confidence.

He has looked so frustrated, sad and discouraged of late. I will try and send good vibes to him tonight.

Bergeron seems ready to come back tonight if not, very soon.
The Yeti is a couple days away to show he exist.
Marchand on the ice today is good sign for a come back for the playoffs.

All great news.

Now, let's take back 1st place tonight with a win and a Habs loss against Phily.

Go B's!

I don't mind him fighting...but Kassian is a tough SOB. Pick your fights IMO...he has no business fighting the other teams heavyweights.

I agree Lady Fan, in fact I think he is trying to hard, thinking to much out there. He needs to go back to basics, just go out and play his game. We need Lucic for any playoff run. If he is not playing his game, we are toast IMO

If he's playing with DK/Jagr... that's the best thing for him. Let him create space for those guys while crashing the night.

Kassian isn't much of a puncher. Lucic can handle him, and he'll have to handle Scott one day.

Lucic needs to be on a different line than Horton, they are almost the same type of player. The line has been poor as of late and a change of line-mates may be just what he needs to get his game back into gear.

Lucic with Jagr and Krejci is one of the thoughts that many have said from the start of the Jagr era.

Power forward in Lucic, with a pass first player like Krejci, and a great puck possession player in Jagr may get Lucic going as long as he stays in the dirty areas and can dig the pucks out for the Czechs.

Just like he did on Bartkowski's goal the other night.

Maybe that will motivate the team a bit.

As they should be. It's power rankings not standings and Toronto just crushed Montreal, while we lost to Carolina. That being said, we were playing half of our team and we are better than the Leafs when healthy.

Chris Rooney is good for one 'I swear I'm not biased for the Bruins' penalty per game, and goes up about five-fold when the game is actually in Boston. Look for that bull**** PP early in this one.

Nice to know Marchand is skating with the team.


Like these lines better although not a fan of Soup on krejci's wing but the team has an abundance of bottom 6 left wingers and not enough top 6 with Marchand out.

I think slotting Horton on the 3rd line is a good idea.

I think this team has lacked real hunger for a while.

One thing I like about the Jagr pick up, the arrival of Soderberg, and the return of Marchand to the line up is that there will be some internal competition for the lines. I also like the looks of the 3rd line-no matter how it shakes out the 3rd line will be dangerous and hopefully able to capitalize off weaker defensive pairings.

I would have scratched Bartkowski not Ference but perhaps Claude was doing it to rest Ference.
I dunno; I think Bart's been playing a bit better than AF lately...
