    Hate to say but I had to miss the game due to work but I agree with your post.They have shown they can compete with and beat the top teams in the East and a healthy lineup should only make them stronger.As long as the effort is there,the good results will come more often than not.

    Well said Bs8 agree. They have been playing with alot more heart lately. I just hate when someone breathes air into this team like Kampfer has been that they are destined to get some stupid injury.

    Hope he is just getting stitched up and its nothing serious. The youthful(re: inexperienced) D is a bit worrisome though. McQ, Boychuck, Bartkowski, Kampfer 3 rooks 1 sophm. Stuart is welcomed return for sure. So is Lucic if those 2 can bring their physical games back it will help theB's alot.

    It was nice to see that the Bruins never gave up when they were behind. Ryder looked good today.

    When this team is healthy and working hard, they can compete with any team!

    Absolutely.  The Bruins were flat out better today.  Moving their feet, creating tons of chances.  Just unlucky and a tip of the cap to Fleury.

    If you subtract Crosby, I think the teams are about even.

    Better regular season team? Perhaps...

    Better team? No freaking way.

    The Pens have a core group who have been to 2 finals and won 1 of them, The Bruins havent won in the second round in nearly 2 decades

    Pittsburgh would smoke Boston if they played each other in the playoffs

    Right. Just like they smoked Montreal last year. Oh wait, I forgot, Montreal knocked them out last year. Don't count on it, Skippy.

    Re: bruins are the better team

    I think 40 years has a point. And that's one thing that the B's have to learn. The team seems to play the regular season as if it's life or death. It's not. Let's look at the factors
    1. Team plays better on the road. So if you finish high in the standings, you play more at home. Is that to the B's advantage?
    2. The team has to prepare itself for the playoffs. Time management is important with the defensemen in general. I think for the most part, Julien hasn't overplayed guys, which is good.
    3. The Power Play stinks, but the team has half a season to fix it for the playoffs.
    4. Right now, Rask loses and Thomas wins. Keep playing them both, make sure Thomas isn't overtaxed by playoff time.
    5. The team still can acquire a player near the end of the season that could make a difference. It might mean eliminating a forward like Ryder (and it could be Savard), it could be anyone. I remember when the B's traded Juneau and got Iafrate. It was not a great longterm move, but it wasn't a bad short-term move because Iafrate supplied a PP slap shot that the team needed. Don't underestimate the ability of Chiarelli to acquire a player that the team needs.
    ....Anyway, all the fans that are young here seem to not understand why a lot of us are skeptical of the B's. The history makes us skeptical. Not the current performance. I do think this team has resiliency and comeback ability, and that's why it's a Cup contender. But until they get past the 2nd round, they are not a top 8 team in this league.

    Re: bruins are the better team

    I think the comparisons above (at least mine) was meant to be entirely about yesterday's game.  I thought the Bruins were the better team yesterday throughout the game, despite losing.  I was giving no consideration to which team is better overall. 

    Clearly the Penguins are loaded and look to be a better playoff squad than the Bruins, all things considered.

    Not yesterday though.  And not the last time that Crosby played against them either.

    two things wrong with this danny. you should never say 40 yrs has a point. he's just rmiller reinvented  (troll). and secondly, getting past the second round makes them a top 4 team, not top 8.

    Re: bruins are the better team

    We are not a better team especially if Pittsburg gets crosby back. IF we get a proper PP QB , i'd say we be close to even (with Penguins still having a slight edge).

    They have won the cup already , have the core intact vs we haven't gone past the 2nd round
