6-2 Bruins.

Thornton(2), Knuble(2), Murray, Boynton
McCormick, Hejduk

We're going to get owned by a big, physical line in Knuble - Thornton - Murray, you watch.

Easy game for the Avs. Colorado will dominate much of the game, mostly due to their top 2 lines. I predict a blow out, one that will end the Raycroft sage in Bean town by being pulled late in the 2nd.

Avs 6 - 1 Bruins

Kariya and Hedjuk score twice, Forsberg assists on 4. Thornton dissapears yet again and fans will start to question his motivation.

We shall see. B's are playing last road game of the 6. It's 3 rd game in 4th nights..should be tough. I don't see 6-1 blow out. Really...why? Unless they committ al those stupid penalties again...5-on-5 B's were decent this year.

After Dallas game B's offensive aspect has been improved and lines started to gel. Finally Knuble is playing on the first line with Thornton and Murray again. Third line of Axelsson - Rolston - Bergeron is also doing some scoring. Surprisingly even line #4 is providing some offense for us.

Still Samsonov - Green - Lapointe line while doing many good things isn't scoring much (if it ever will...too much of a talent difference).

I think key for the B's to this game:

1) Discipline!!! No stupid and unnecessary penalties.
2) Play physical like in the last 2 games.
3) Goaltending...was good in all games this year. Must be exellent in this one.
4) Don't fall 0-3 or 1-3 again early. I don't see another come from behind game.

I would say 4-3 Colorado or 3-2 Bruins...although 4-3 B's is also possible.

I'll say 4-3 Avs.


Who knows though. The Avs "powerhouse" hasn't been impressing too much so far.

Bruins could take it.

I don't think the smaller Avs will be able to handle the bigger Bruins squad. A very small, offensively gifted top 6 can only carry a team so far...

I'm going to go with 5-3 Avs. although i have a sneaking suspicion that the Avs will blow this one.

Avs: Forsberg, Sakic (2), Morris, Skrastins

Bruins: Rolston, Thornton, Axelsson

This is only if B's will actually decide to hit...and play. We've seen everything this year from ugly and boring B's against Dallas and Panthers to B's that really wanted to win no matter what against LA and Anaheim.

Well... Which B's team will show up?... If the first it will be complete disaster (and B's know it), if the second...well then who knows.

I promise one thing ..it won't be a boring game to watch....
Sakic, Hejduk, Samsonov, Foppa, Muzz, Kariya, Thornton,Salami, Rolston, Tanguay, new Knuble in one game can't be boring!!!


If you are interested in rookies look for Patrice Bergeron. For 18 years old second rounder he's got some underrated skills and maturity.

Here for the GOOD GAME!!!

GO BRUINS!

It will be interesting to see if the really strict officiating is here to stay. If there are 8 Powerplays for each team or something like that, the Avs might run away with it.

Tanguay from Hejduk and Foote.

Freakin' Skoula! How the hell do you turn the puck over for a near breakaway on the PP IN the neutral zone?

And please don't tell me we're going with the Battaglia-Cummins-McAllister line against Thorton's line. I mean size for size is good, but....yeesh...

I didn't like the Avs' effort on the Bruins goal. Tanguay was just floating about 2 feet from where Foote was...yeesh. Crap, Forsberg lazily tried to one-hand the loose puck and missed it completely...leaving Rolston wide open to wrist it home.

Jillson scores. For crying out loud, why is the Battaglia-Cummins-McAllister line going up against Thorton's line???
