    0 for 4 on the PP and A lack of physical play

    That pretty much says it all there....

    I have to wonder one thing, was there even a single Bruin fan very concerned after they squandered thier 4th STRAIGHT powerplay?????????????????????

    I was very concerned from the time they dropped the puck. B's didnt have that same look in their eyes they had before the 2 home games.

    We can all come up with what was wrong, But, our Bruins are in the Stanley Cup finals with 2 games to go. Claude says they did not play as well as games 3 and 4, but actually, the Canucks played better, and used their speed for every advantage. In the end it was a ricochet and an uncovered player with all of the Bruins turned the wrong way. Those things happen. Let's be proud of our team right to the end, either game 6 or game 7.

    I agree. The game plan was all wrong. They should have played Bruins hockey. At one point, Luongo didn't even have his stick and still, nothing. We played right in to their hands.

    Bruins have done a masterful job of mostly containing the Canucks speed game AND, more importantly, not allowing their PP to be as effective as it has been previously. Last nights game came down to one lucky bounce. Happens every playoffs. Now the B's have to go home, reset, and bring their game for games 6 & 7 to win this thing. They can do it.

    "ricochet"? 

    That was a pass from Bieksa, not a shot.  From the camera behind the goal, you can clearly see that Lucic has come out to the point, and taken away the shooting lane.  Rather than risk a block and a possible breakaway, Bieksa intentionally shoots several feet wide of the net, banking a perfect pass of the end boards to Lappy, who's been left uncovered.  Once again, the Canucks have taken advantage of TT's aggressive play for a GWG.

    but he still managed to make a beautiful feed to a young marchand right in front of the net for a beauty one timer opportunity.......that he didn't get all of. Could have been the difference in the game. Despite his age, he's still contributing fairly significantly.....even potting some goals.

    Vancouver amped up their play, especially the physical aspect of it and the Bruins couldn't or didn't respond in a manner necessary to maintain the success of the games in Boston.  With the Bruins hitting the Canucks around in Games 3 and 4, they dictated the play and didn't give Vancouver the chance to bring the game Boston's way. 

    There was little evidence of that form last night from the Bruins but plenty from the opposition.  Full props to the home side for their adjustment.  The deplorable PP is supposed to be an advantage but in the hands of Ward and his strategies, it's a detriment.  That 0-4 start would prove to be the club's doom without cashing in.  Everybody knew going in a functioning PP could prove to be the difference in close games.  Again last night that ugly reality came home to roost.

    as impressive as games 3 and 4 were for the bruins, there has to be some thought to the complete meltdown of the canucks. had they actually shown up in boston and made some effort to play, it could have been a different game. that being said, it looks like on home ice they managed to shake the demons and take advantage of being back in vancouver. there's alot of discussion about teams playing "their game"  it will be interesting to see which vancouver team shows up on monday. i can't see boston not taking control on the ice and forcing a game 7.

    the problem is that they don't come right out of the gate in Vancouver and establish a physical presence. Vancouver absolutely blew them away out of the gate, hitting wise, last night.

    The games in Boston have been completely different than in Vancouver. Hopefully that will change after we win game 6 Wink

    Enough blame on Thomas he is the reason they are still alive; yes it was a possible misjudgement on his positioning on the goal but look at the goal scorer - not really a threat to score, along with the rest of his team.

    You could ask anyone and if your goaltender gives up only 6 goals in 5 games (1.2 GAA), you should be winning all of them or at least 4 (for the Cup)! Hats off to Thomas and the D for shutting down Vancouver. We just need 2 goals a game to win this - Bruins still the favourite for the Cup in my books.  Bonus for you stats people - if you missed it last night, they said the last 2 winners of game five when the series was tied went on to lose the cup!

    Power Play is whats going to cost us the SC IF we lose. You have to take every chance you have to score on Miss Luongo.
