Defenseman Jassen Cullimore injured his right knee in the second period. He was helped off the ice by teammates, careful not to put pressure on that leg, and didn't return. DeBoer said there wouldn't be more known on Cullimore's status until today. ... Center Kamil Kreps returned to the lineup Thursday. He had missed the previous five games after suffering a concussion Nov. 6 at Los Angeles.
Team gets a C
Nearly one-fourth through the season, DeBoer said the Panthers' report card deserves a 'C.'
"We've done some things, we've made some improvements, but we're not where we need to be," he said. "The nice thing is we're starting to get a handle on how we want to play and how we need to play."
C'mon montsy, the cats will get at least one goal. I'm going with 4-2 Bruins. Skrastins and Boynton get the goals.
Hard to believe, but this is his first trip back to Boston since he was traded. A bunch of us are planning on wearing our Boynton Bruin shirts to the game and cheering him on. But of course, we still have to root for the B's to win. I just want Nick to do well. Should be a good game.
It was nice to see Frolik playing well last night. That first goal should boost his confidence. He looked especially good on the PP.
Let's go Panthers.
I'm also glad Frolik had a great game last night. Should get him more playing time for sure. Maybe he can get a point streak going. As for tonights game. The Bruins have been playing some great hockey lately and with big Chara on defense our chances will be limited, so we need to capitalize on every chance we do get. I hope we can get at least a point out of this game.
I expect a win tonight because I don't expect us to win. We're playing a tough team and the back end of back-to-back. Expect a similar situation as the Ducks game, I just hope that Andy can play well again.
We are going to have to play out of our minds to beat Boston, they are the best in the East right now IMO. I don't think we'll win, 2nd of back to back, we have to travel, and the B's are fresher. I just hope we don't get embarassed.
olesz is indeed benched...other news tonight...kind of active on the news front...check out the blog....
I am glad Olesz is benched, he has been invisible out there so far this season. He sure doesn't look like a player who just signed a 6 year deal worth 18 mill. I don't know how they possibly gave him more money than Weiss. But that's just my opinion. I like rusty, I always have, but he's one of the guys we need to be producing like a top-6 forward in order for the team to be successful and he just hasn't been doing it.
