Again. we (sorry, the Boston Bruins), don't have a goalie problem. This team has been very solid for the last couple of weeks, and peaking at the right time is huge, given the league's parity.
Make no mistake, this teams goalie will probably be the cause of a loss moving forward, but so will just about everyone else.
That's hockey. Move forward with resolve.
Buffalo has a pretty good team. Argueably, the b's have been a tad better over the last 2.
To think that this team finished 6th, over the last 6 months, with so many not pulling their weight, is cause for cautious optimism.
Ryder had a huge game. Not just the goals, the intensity. the b's need that with a lot more regularity. Rask is fine thankyou.
I think, Sobotka has been great, and the crippled D is also doing fine.
If you look at this team, man for man. It ain't bad. Just a history of inconsistency, which hopefully, has been excorcised over the last while.
Time for Sturm to step up.
Regardless of health, this team has shown it's good enough to win, and against a pretty good squad.
So far in these playoffs, what's transpired during the regular season hasn't meant much. In today's NHL, any team can win on any nite. If you've managed to do it once, no reason to accept the fact, it can't be done again. As the old adage goes, "1 game at a time, and never give up"
The B's should believe in themselves, and I don't think there is a single thing, we as fans can do, that will aid the cause, more than believing in them.
This is no time for nit picking, negativity, a victim mentality, or a defeatist, conspiracy mentality. The playoffs is a time to rally.
We expect it from the B's, and we should expect it from ourselves.
Blindly standing behind the home team(all of them), really IS the difference between being better at home, than on the road.
This squad has played 2 very good games in a hostile environment. The home crowd should, and needs to be a difference maker.
Here's hoping the garden faithful really get behind these guys for the next couple games
