Its no time to panic by any means, but the Bruins need a win.

They've dropped 3 in a row and only picked up 1 point in those games. The Eastern Conference is finally starting to catch up with the Bruins, which is what happened last year, only later in the year. If I were to place "blame," I'd say we're in a offensive slump. The defence has been very solid and I've had no complaints with the goalie situation.

BOS - 5
PHO - 2

The Bruins (I know I've mentioned this COUNTLESS times lately) need to come out banging, crashing, snarling and ready to drop the gloves. Sandy McCarthy (I've said this before, too, so just read it again anyways) HAS to do something other than "not hurt the team" which is what he seems to think his role is these days. I could have sworn that I read where he said he was going to start fighting more. If the guy is just going to take a meaningless shift where he just skates around scowling then he should be placed on waivers. Any loser from Providence can be called up to skate around pretending to be tough.
I almost soiled myself at the start of Fridays game when "Sully" (snicker) started the Zamuner/Grosek/McCarthy line. Kluzak says: "interesting line to start this one" and then says something along the lines of "coach Sullivan wants these guys to set the tone because all three like to "mix it up". Good one!
Anyways, we need the fourth line to do something other than "not hurt the team" like maybe hurt the other team a little? The line of Stock/Oliwa/Brown knew what their job was and did it with no questions asked and I don't remember them costing us a game by playing the way they did.
I still say that "Sully" (snicker) has the whole team playing too much of a no-hitting, defensive, non-aggressive, passive, timid and overall lack-luster style. Then again, that's the way he played his whole career. (snicker)

this should be a good game to watch. nagy-langkow-doan looked very good vs. LA the other night. the b's will probably throw joe's line out against them, as we show no willingness to match lines. the coyotes have some good draw guys (sillinger/gratton), and some physical guys (plus tyson nash, who is a total azzclown that runs around cheapshotting people ). the b's need to come out strong, pot a goal or two, and get the crowd into the game. guys i'm interested in watching from phoenix- radivojevic, who is a talented guy that plays physical; paul mara, who has been tied to rumors to the b's for years, and seems to be coming into his own; and landon wilson, who always left us fans wanting more. the freight train hit of keith primeau in the carolina series in 1999 is something i'll never forget- that kid looked like he was headed to stardom after that playoff, but it just never worked out. here's to a good and ENTERTAINING contest

I watch NHL CI alot, so I see tonnes of games from different teams...the hitting on the forecheck is INSTRUMENTAL in keeping the puck in the opponents zone. I think you shouldnt be running around with your head cut off in the neutral zone or your own end...but damn-if they start using some muscle down low they'd be almost unstoppable. Who gives a rats a$$ if it opens up a oddman rush or two-the benefits would far outweigh it. Keys for tonight vs. Phoenix imo: 1. FORECHECK LIKE YOU MEAN IT 2. RUN PICKS IN THE NEUTRAL ZONE TO DISRUPT THE TRAP 3. DEFENSE NEEDS TO JOIN THE RUSH MORE THEN THEY ARE WITH THE TRAP. Sully needs to let the reign off and think offense first vs. trap teams or we'll continue to get screwed. Think about it...Why does a team trap anyhow?? Cause they have troubles scoring. Well if they cant score what's the problem in giving up a couple more opportunities if it'll benefit us and our offense?? Offense is our strongpoint-when used properly...Lets play to it against a trap team for once...oh, and dont give a damn about worrying about any penalties neither. They seem to come one way or anyother-just play mad and hard and let the cards fall where they may. oh and i agree Don. LOL Long rant-my bad

Phoenix is a team that will take a lot of penalties, and with the Coyote's small, unexperienced forwards going against the 700 LB line, you can hopefully expect a lot of PP's for the Bruins tonight...

The key to the Bruins getting back onto the winning side of hockey is exposing the other team's biggest weakness early on in the game, and in this case, it's the fact that Phoenix has the reputation of taking a lot of penalties....

I disagree....Bruins have lost the last two because there defense has made some horrible turnovers and cover mistakes in there own zone. O'donnel and Gill have especially been problematic in my eyes. I really wish we would just sit O'donnel for agame to get his head out his ass. People have complianed about boynton's play but I think his partner has been tobalme for the majority of the pairing goofs.

The offense continues to try to find its stride. At this point I would like to see the lines change up. I would like to see rolston on the second line with Sammy and Bergeron. It would give the pair a bonifide shooter to set up. Perhaps that would help them out. It also may jump start Rolston a bit. A line of Ax Green and Lapointe would be a pretty mean checking line. I think it is worth a game or two trial. By no means do I think the offense is at fault for the current 3 game losing streak though. They continue to make chances when not faced with a trap....

That's an interesting tactic... let the opposing players take the puck to the net and then just pick it up at the last second and shoot.

Smooth.

Nash goes for hooking Jilson... Man, I'd love to see a penalty shot for that one. He was on the doorstep and wasn't gonna knock before coming in.

Zino drew a hooking or obstruction holding/hooking call. He was working hard there with the 4th liners.

Sillenger scores on a weird play........Boynts tried to keep the puck in and it went directly to Nash who made a beautiful pass to Sillenger who wristed it home.

Give Boynton an assist on that one. Nice to see that our "enforcer" (snicker) is turning down challenges from Andrei Nazarov of all people. Time to waive that loser.

uggh....that was a harsh play....nash made a good pick off. I am glad Boynton was trying to keep the puck in the zone, though. Where was Rolston?

Goalie Tip Of The Day: HEY POTVIN CHALLENGE THE SHOOTER! :mad:
Dryden would've skated out, broke up the pass AND get a shot off in the time that the play developed

That's the one goalie tip that Potvin never listened to growing up playing goalie. He's always had amazing reflexes but with age, things start to slow down, hopefully Potvin will begin to realize that he can't always play so deep in his net because his reflexes just aren't what they used to be.

Even Cats get old!

i don't think its time to waive him yet....but I can't defend him. This team needs a kick in the ass. It would be nice if he flattened nash or stepped up to nazarov's challenge. maybe get the crowd more involved...

mccarthy has to get it through his head that he is not going to get promoted to a higher line....he needs to learn that his role is to mix it up a bit....

Is EVERY post you make basically the same thing? McCarthy has played great. He takes the body, he has scored a couple goals, plays tough. You dont need to fight to be tough.

I can only imagine you would be happier if the guy was out there gooning it up, taking dumb penalties and being a detriment to the team instead of playing solid shift in and shift out. What is it you want to watch, a good hockey team or pro wrestling? Choose one.
