    B's with a solid win, Ranger lose again and suddenly....

    ...things do not seem too dire anymore.

    Once the Bruins wounded come back in time for the playoffs they are all of the sudden in a good position to go for a nice deep run....

    I'd rather have seen the Rangers beat Ottawa in regulation tonight, actually.

    Ditto.
    Games in hand are just that. Not actual points, potemtial points.
    Bruins need to keep rolling to the playoffs. Once there, anything can happen

    Amazing what one solid addition makes....and by that, I mean Caron. With Horton and Pevs out, depth was clearly an issue. Rolston isn't the answer. But when Caron can step in and bumps Rolston to the 3rd line, everything seems much better, doesn't it?

    When Peverly comes back, things will look even brighter.

    I don't think it's coincidence that they've started to play better hockey at the same time as the Senators have made a charge.  I don't want the Senators to lose out and have the Bruins back into 2nd.  I'd rather see them push the Bruins to maintain that 3 points and 3 games - or expand it.

    Good thoughts all around. Caron looks like he was made for Bergeron's line, but, let's remember, he is still a young 21 and learning. Mottau was dependable. Rolston played more consistently with kelly; and Corvo looks like he knows there are new replacements available.

    What's with the fear of Ottawa? So what if (and that is a big if) they overtake us for the division lead. The B's will still make the playoffs and now it looks like one of their biggest conference competitors is starting to stumble down the stretch.

    The B's do not need to fear a playoff matchup with Ottawa who they have won almost every game against this year but the Rangers.

    Peverley's return is crucial

    Pevs/Kelly/Rolston

    Ill take that 3rd line, especially if it means Pouliot is in the press box

    I like the Bruins remaining in 2nd  and playing the Sens the 1st round.
    Rangers or Pens can play the 8th place and good luck traveling to Winnipeg.

    I would love to see how Karlsson reacts to playoff hockey.  He won't have the time he gets now and the Bruins on the forecheck would zero in on him.  He'll be making mistake over mistake in his own end, more than he already does now.

    I wouldn't call it a fear of Ottawa, jaywall, more a source of motivation that they haven't really had since Jan. 1st.  The division is a crapfest this year with the Laffs doing their annual swan lake, the Sabres makeup being fundamentally flawed and the Shabs chanting "Fail for Nail". That leaves the surprising Senators as the only threat to the Bruins' top 3 slot.  I don't think they care about the Conference title - let the Rangers chase it - but the division title has real consequences especially with the SE being even worse than the NE.

    And, of course, you want them to play well going into the playoffs.  I don't mind them having two gears to avoid burning out, but you don't want them to assume they can find that Cup-winning gear by flipping a switch on April 11th.

    I am surprised at Caron's emergence.  Good for him.  It appears that Rolston may be better suited on the defensive part of his game on the 3rd line.

    Yep, playoff hockey is much different. Having to play against the aggressive forecheck of the Rangers or B's for at least 4 straight games is much more intense than playing a different team every other night.

    I think he would probably become a non-factor by game 2 and even a liability for his team by game 4. Mike Green is the likely template for this scenario. Of course, maybe he will thrive in such a competitive environment. We will find out soon enough.

    True....but I would prefer an unsure and non-confident Ranger team over a divisional title going into the playoffs if it came to such a choice. I view the Rangers as our primary Conference competitor and anything to weaken them helps the B's.

    But again, there is no resaon Boston can't have both.
