    Right on, Ipot.

    Give the Strangers the President's Trophy. I'll take Stanley every time.

    The real hockey starts in April and ends in June.

    Man, I want to see Chara absolutely destroy that big shiteating-goof Scott. I want to see Chara hurt that dope badly. Smash his face in and send him off the ice missing his teeth.

    What a great second period. Looked just like the 20 game stretch earlier this season.

    I'm liking Caron's game today. Never mind the points he's put up today, I think he;s playing a great game.

    On another point, this game has a playoff feel to it. That being said, I like how our best is measuring up against their best thus far through 2 periods. Hoping for a solid 3rd to finish strong and rebuild that winning outlook.

    A little contradicting, wouldn't you say? Funny how you think a game in January had an inpact on the Bruins but a game in February against the first place team is just another game. 

    Troll much?

    The fact that most of you responded with a 'hockey discussion' proves my point.  The fact that NAS responded the way he did proves a different, though no less telling point.

    While the Jan 7 game may not have been the "TSN Turning Point", it did, I think, put a dent in the Bruins' confidence, which was flying pretty high in December.  I don't think the whole White House thing helped, either, despite the pronouncements coming from management.  That being said, the biggest single impact has been all the injuries, and the sudden realization that there isn't as much organizational depth as you'd like, at this point in the season.  

    I wonder if a savvy TV director of yesterday's broadcast would have thought to swing the camera up to the Bruins' management box just after Rask went down.  The look on the faces there would have spoken volumes.

    The Rangers are wearing them down now, they are just too big and physical, Seguin looks like a boy out there.

    Close but just not good enough. B's got to get better fast or the playoff run will b a short one..

    Really good game by the B's, victimized by some bad bounces on both ends.  Thought they carried the play.

    This could be a first round preview the way the Bs are playing.

    The Rangers barley beat the Bruins today without Horton, Peverley, Paille or Ference so I don't see how this could be a measuring stick at all.

Can't wait to kick the Rangers a** in the playoffs!

    I know this thread is from the past and I know you don't need me to bring up the past 20 winners of the Presidents Cup records in the Stanley Cup playoffs as a point as well.

    I agree the Bruins could be playing allot better but I still back the Bruins with my black n gold goggles if both teams face each other healthy in the playoffs.

    I don't think Callahan = Horton/Peverley but I do  agree that the Bruins would win a 7 game season during the new season.

    The Rangers are now 3-0 against the Bruins this year. However, I will not concede that the 3 victories were full value.

    If the Rangers take them as being full value, they have another thing coming - an early playoff exit.

    A Bruin team without Horton, Peverley, Ference and Paille come back on them from a 2-0 deficit. These same Bruins had the puck 80% of the time and spent 75% of the time in the Ranger end (just as the other two games, also losses. The problem today - primary scoring, and a few bad bounces. They got the secondary scoring today.

    Today, I saw a depleted Bruin team that didn't give up. That's great by me. And bodes well for the return of the injured.
