Oh Chara played lazy, but that doesn't negate the blame on Loui and that pathetic decision

I agree if Tuukka was playing we win easy

Johnson earned me -0.8 points in fantasy, that's impressive.

That last goal was a bad one to give up by Johnson. You have to make that stop. Chara was doing what he could without putting the team on a 4 on 3. Not sure how he was lazy there. Just a stupid pass by Loui and the failure by the goalie to stop a pretty easy shot to stop.

So why on Earth did we sign this guy and let Khudobin go again?

Don't know if this is a devil's advocate thing or just a "I always defend my favorite player" thing, but there isn't any defending on Chara on that play. He blew it. End of story.
Classic charlie foxtrot.

Been a few this year.

Loui made a bad pass, Chara made an incredibly lazy play, Johnson let in a horrible goal. Bart and Boychuk collapsed to send it to overtime.

On multiple players tonight.

When Johnson is in his groove he's a pretty decent back-up

When he is off his game he is equal parts statute serve

Of well....come home, put in Tuukka and try to reignite the pre-Olympic style of play

Loui made a pass that turns into a scoring chance only if Chara quits giving a **** (which should be about 0.00001% of the time). Chara quits giving a ****, which is a scoring chance every time. Let's blame the former more.

Chara...I've always complained about this part of his game, but no one ever wants to talk about it. He looks "indifferent" sometimes to offense. He's very slow and casual sometimes about starting or restarting offensive possessions. He played pretty well tonight, so I don't want to make him the goat, but the way he gets casual sometimes sucks. The guy is a workout hound, but still has his moments where he looks like he's going about half speed, not out of fatigue, but out of a little bit of laziness.
That's just his style, it may come across as effortless but it isn't actual a lack of effort. He's just that good and experienced. Bruins should have won this easily, Buffalo was gifted a lot early on by the stripes. Bruins played well after a poor start and could have had the 2. Johnson back to his norm after a period of great play. Next game we'll win!

It was a blind pass and Chara lost sight of it, he hesitated and it cost him since he didnt immediately start skating back. He shouldn't have to make a quick decision, he was put there by an awful pass

We didn't let him go. He wanted to be a starter and we went with Rask. Pretty sure we would have kept Khudobin if we could have.

That was just terrible.

Tuukka has got to be reeling back in Boston. He would have had at LEAST three of those goals. Sheesh, I think Johnson was still at the beach or something..

Did you see the goal? Subban gets a penalty then loses his man that results in the winning goal!

Johnson looked atrocious and it was a total Phaneuf-like (hehe - 'Phaneufed') breakdown that led to the OT goal in that game.

I'm sorry - Carolina is just as shored up between the pipes as we are.
