    Bruins vs Pens GDT

    Might as well make it offical. After what seems like a week off, we have a game tonight against the Pens. Likely starting lineups:

    Boston Bruins
    Milan Lucic - Patrice Bergeron - Nathan Horton
    Mark Recchi - Blake Wheeler - Jordan Caron
    Daniel Paille - Tyler Seguin - Michael Ryder
    Brad Marchand - Gregory Campbell - Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara - Andrew Ference
    Matt Hunwick - Dennis Seidenberg
    Mark Stuart - Adam McQuaid

    Probable starting goaltender: Tim Thomas

    Pittsburg Penguins:
    Chris Kunitz - Sidney Crosby - Pascal Dupuis
    Matt Cooke - Evgeni Malkin - Aaron Asham
    Mike Rupp - Mark Letestu - Tyler Kennedy
    Craig Adams - Max Talbot - Eric Godard

    Paul Martin - Kris Letang
    Brooks Orpik - Zbynek Michalek
    Alex Goligoski - Deryk Engelland

    Probable starting goalie: Brent Johnson

    Funny, I like the Pens dmen, but utterly despise all their forwards. Go figure.

    Sidney Crosby has actually been calling for Marc-Andre Fleury to start so he can get out of his slump but Brent Johnson might get the start again he's been the better goalie so far. I expect Letang to run around doing his usual aggravating assault he needs to be nailed by Marchand or Lucic.

    the b's are bad at faceoffs so wheeler is moved to center?

    "Blake Wheeler gets the call to center, after two-plus NHL seasons of wing duty. He looked weak on faceoffs during the morning workout"

    hockey's a game of possession, right?

    We'll see more of the 4th line than any line tonight other than the first line anyways, so don't worry about it. I'd rather see Colburne than Wheeler at center anyways.

    Maybe center works out for wheeler. Gotta imagine this is one of the kids last chances, its the closest thing to new "scenery" barring a trade.

    Dissapointed they didnt make a 2nd power line with seguin centering and shorten the roster even more. Even if they only did it for these next 2 games it woulda been a way to take a different perspective on the teams depth.

    Seguin got benched in the third period last game, so there's no way Julien puts him on the second line. With him on the third line, he'll probably see about 15 minutes of playing time.

    @KSP

    Thats double what he got last game. I know Julien has a b.oner for backchecking but you need to take advantage of a players strengths. The kid obviously has them give him a chance to be in an offensive role.

    ARE YOU F*CKING KIDDING ME B0NER IS A BAD WORD ON THIS FORUM GIMME A BREAK

    15 minutes is acceptable ice time for a young forward.Stamkos averages just over 20 a game-Ovechkin 22 a game.With only 60 available for all of the centres there's only so much to go around.

    Seguin, just like every other rookie in their first year, will make a lot of mistakes. I understand the concept of not trying to put the world on his shoulders, but how is he ever going to learn from his mistakes by sitting on the bench and only playing 8 minutes a game?

    Seguin should be back in junior hockey...

    Brent Johnson is starting. Appartently MAF hasn't been his smiling self at all this season. Even during training camp, he wasn't happy. Whether it's something personal, or an injury of some sort is unknown. That info came from the Media guy of the Pens. Be the same kind of postion Bish has with the B's.

    Slow starts is beginning to become the hallmark of this club! Pens forecheck is killing our D. Nice PP goal by Recchi, but it won't matter at this rate. We are lucky to have a tie score for now...

    Julien must be screaming at his defense in the locker room right now!

    I missed the first period, but so far it doesn't look like I've missed much. If the Bruins play stinks as much in the second period as it did in the first, I should thank my kid for needing a ride to the mall.

    Bruins being outplayed, outskated, out hustled.. actually 3-2 score is rather flattering.. bad luck for Bergy ringing two off the pipes..better tune up for the 3rd and at least get a road point..

    Lets get our 4th line and 3rd D pair out against Crosby, that'll work great!
