What's Krejci's stat line look like since they took Lucic off his line?

I hate to say it...but I am starting to think that trading away Looch may be a good move. He has been so unbelievably substandard that I cannot make excuses for him anymore....he is not scoring, he is turning pucks over and he is not standing up for his teammates....he becomes pretty useless when he does none of those things. I think being a dad has turned him into a *****.

Krejci was finally separated from the supposed dead wait of Horton and Lucic and paired with Jagr and was pretty much invisible the entire game.
Horton had nothing to do with those two goals.

I dont buy the Miller was great argument. Lots of shots, not a lot of great shots and even less second chances.

I am also worried that this team is having trouble turning up the energy notch. Kaleta ran our guys all night and no one did sh--. Pretty sad. At some point we have to play like we mean business.

How many were close games?

Always feels like winning by the skin of their teeth

Imagine how many more wins we'd have if we didn't blow third period leads... I've lost count at this point, 5 or 6 I bet

The way we lost sucks on a night like this, but I'm not upset about how it happened, at least in regards to the Bruins play. Sucks that the last goal came off of Ference's clearing into the stands because he looked like a man on a mission tonight.
Pretty much the standard for the referees..

Ference had a great game but he managed to screw things up. He knows what he did and also knows that some others do too.

Poor Lucic, he has no dance partner. He is just not in the games, in the first he does not move his feet to get closer to the puck beside the net. I classified that as no big deal, there was a couple of other no big deals by the team.

I don't think they can do it.

Chara could be in New Hampshire slapping a puck and everybody in Boston will still see the shot.

Unless he is injured, Lucic should not play another game for this team.

They were hitting Kaleta pretty hard after that, I though Boychuk might have ended him at the end of the 2nd there.

I would have liked to see someone jump him, but it's not like they did nothing.

Aside from getting an A+ in observation Horton didnt do much to help with those two goals. I could have been the RW on that line and they would have happened.

Even Mike Milbury and the other guy said the B's didn't look good, and weren't playing for long stretches of the game.

This wa the first game fully healthy since acquiring Jagr.

The Yeti will join the forces soon.

The last two losses they played good enough to blow out but Peters and Miller stole the games for their teams. **** happen.

I wish I could spend good money with the cryers over here and their one and done thing. Would be real easy money won.

This season's success is predicated on how well they do in the play-offs.

After tonight they are officially in the play-offs.

Now get to the play-offs in the best health possible; however after how they responded to the Sabres' cheap shots tonight that may be a tall task.

Great showing by the fans. Unbelievable. With all that has gone on and keeping in mind that it is only a game, the decision to leave Jagr on the bench in a shootout absolutely baffles me. On to the next game. Go Bruins.

A lot of pressure on the team tonight. Kinda surprised Julien laid it on them with some of his comments. Bergeron line was awesome. Not sure how they didn't get a goal out of that. Refs absolutely stunk. Seemed Buf could do no wrong. Thanks for the even up call with 3 seconds left. Very generous. My only real disappointment was the lack of physical response. I can only imagine they are saving it for the playoffs, but not sure tonight was the night to hold back.

Alright, I've seen one too many high horse posts like this and I can't ignore them anymore

This is a friggin HOCKEY BOARD. We are a bunch of die hard Bruins fans. What the hell are you expecting to see right now? "Oh well, good effort guys, hockey isn't that important anyway"

It is to us. I mean to a degree. We're not making life decisions based on it, nor are we doing drastic things that effect other people, because the Bruins lost.....We're talking about it on a message board

And if they had won, would it be okay to be all celebratory and happy about that? If your answer is yes, following your own logic, WHY? It's just a hockey game, terrible things are happening in the world. Don't get so excited about something so trivial. Get some perspective

It's nonsense. It's a hockey board. That loss sucked. Let us say so with that judgmental crap

I pointed negatives out, so now I'll look at some positives

I thought Kelly looked fantastic tonight, and has since he got back. The start of his season wasn't so great, but he looks real good now

Paille, what more can you say. One of the hardest workers on the team, played great tonight, some serious speed. Quite an asset to this team when you look at it.

Redden, didnt overwhelm, no underwhelm me, which is a good thing. Proved he's a reliable depther defensman (I know it's just one game)

Ference, minus the bad delay of game penalty, actually had quite the game, one of his best of the year.

I am ****ing furious and beyond words.

Opportunity to cheer us up missed.

Opposite effect.

Never should have emotionally invested myself in this game the way I did.

Naive to think they care nearly as much.

**** it.

The Sabres have been playing good hockey lately and have won 3 in a row. I actually think they could give the Pens a good fight if they were to finish in 8th place...however it's not very likely they'll make the playoffs with Rangers having 2 games in hand.

Would a W really have made the situation any better? They took your mind off of it for a few hours, isn't that what sports is about? It doesn't cure broken hearts.
