Quest for the cup goes through Philly, I believe strongly that we can take out Tampa and Washington fairly easy if we beat Philly.

It's weird because if we beat Philly I think we started out with the hardest opponent for the Bruins in MTL, then went to a harder opponent in Philly and then a weaker team in either Tampa or Washington.

Interesting.
Rinaldo got all those PIMs because he's bat**** ****ing insane. For all you guys clamoring and looking for a dirty player, that's the best the Flyers could give you. But you'll love him, he'll get to boost your post counts.

Boston pretty much won the series against Montreal with an invisible Krejci, so I guess they won't fare much worse with an injured Krejci.

Yeah, just watched some of his stuff on Youtube. Looks like a real POS. Lots of dirty hits, and doesn't appear to be a good fighter either.

Whatever. Chances are slim we see him this series anyways I'd imagine.

Generally that would be the initial thought, except for that a pointless krejci is better than an injured krejci. Why? Because if he's on the ice, players have to take note, he's a great disher and can get shots off too, so if he's not there that line or another is less of a threat and the trickle down effect is no longer there

I like Krejci a lot but i think Chiarelli should look into trading him and grabbing a tougher centerman down the lie, his game is just too slow and soft to be effective for a long cup run IMO and he's going to be a liability

I hope Im wrong

The Bruins have no chance whatsoever if they can't start doing some powerplay scoring. If they can get up to @20% productivity out of it, they'll be ready for anyone.

Strangely optimistic for me but I think Krejci will have a good series. Philly sometimes has trouble with their D zone coverage and Krejci is the best we have by far to exploit that.

Bruins need some way to keep Briere in check. He is one of the most difficult forwards to shut down and had six goals in the first round.

I think their other forwards....Giroux, Carter, Richards, Leino etc. are obviously good but Briere is the one that presents the biggest problem.

Can't wait for tomorrow afternoon, I got a good feeling about this. Milan will have a great series against the Flyers, I wanna see him go after Richards

Lets go Bruins!

Nope, it's my fear that Krejci is going to get a playoff ending injury due to his soft and slow style, against the flyers, or some other team.

I hope not, last year Savard came back not 100% but he was there in the series, we lose Krejci now we are toast even if he hasn't been that great so far in these playoffs

I didn't make a prediction last round...not doing it this round.

Not saying they'll win...but I don't expect another epic collapse.
