    Wow.  Hamilton in the 3rd period is settling in and looking much more comfortable.

    And yes, I am obsessed.  I have him picked for the Calder and a HOF defenseman.  That's quiet a bit I have invested in him.

     



    I found he looked comfortable all game maybe even saved a goal.  He played a simple game and that's what is asked of him.  Good job.

    Thought Hamilton played a steady game.  Keep it simple. Good test against a solid team.

    Great Game! PP still needs some work, but I did see everybody in motion compared to standing still. DK got robbed, but that type of play is going to the goalie 98% of the time!If the ref had of called it a goal it may have had a 50-50 chance of counting.

    I was really impressed with this team tonight.  Played much better than I expected.

     

    In the meanwhile, if I were a Rangers fan I'd be getting together a lynch mob for Nash.

    Hamilton was solid.  Anyone missing Corvo or Zanon or Mottau?




    Those 3 were idiots, can't believe how excited so many here got when we picked up Zanon last year.... Get a guy like Vandy if you just need a stay at home, clear the crease guy..... those 3 were schmucks. Corvo was ineffectual. Good on Dougie

    Nash made some nice plays during the game but played soft overall. He was exactly what I expected.

    Watching TO and the Habs. Talk about firewagon hockey. Zero defence...



    That's one of the reasons most of us are pleased with tonight's results. Bruins looked locked into their system already...and the offense will only get better. They didn't give the Rangers much to work with. Good start.

    If the ref called it a goal it would've had a 100% chance of counting. The replay would need to show the puck not crossing the line to overturn and that replay didn't show the puck at all. I was very pleased it made no difference. On another note, is it just me or do players always seem to score a goal on their birthday? Good on Boychuck making it happen tonight. Cheers!

    I had visions of Lundqvist doing what he's done to the Bruins before; stoning them so this win is especially pleasing against that team.  The Bruins looked engaged and ready to go.

    Looks like the Bruins players who played overseas during the lockout benefited greatly from playing real games and thriving against real competition... If memory serves me right Bruins had the most players go overseas to play of any NHL team .. This team looked like it was in midseason form tonite..

    I disagree.  It seems to me that it hurt one player - Seguin.  It looked to me that he was thinking he had more time than he did.  My guess is the big ice and the soft play over there gave more time and he got used to it.

    Lucic and Horton didn't play and they looked solid.

    I don't think you have to worry about Seguin.. I didn't think he was that bad.. +2 on the night is pretty good from where I sit..That whole line played real well tonite ..  Krejci, Chara, Bergeron , Seidenberg etc all played over there and they looked real good... I don't think the Bruins would have let Horton go overseas anyway.

    I'm not worried about Seguin in the least.  Maybe in the next game or at most another 3 and he'll have it all back together.

    The rest, yah, I would agree with you.

    I don't think the Bruins had any say whether or not Horton played overseas or not.  During the lockout the players could do whatever they wanted to. 

    All that said, I really liked the way Horton looked tonight.

    I was also VERY happy to see Horton back.. If the Bruins are going to go far this season they need this guy in the line up and contributing.. He is the best Bruin sniper on the team . I thought he looked good tonite as well.. Also good to see Lucic throwing his weight around ..

    Up 2-1 near the end of the second period, why would the skating clown agree to fight?


    And why would the fourth line center follow in his footsteps?

    To change the flow of the game, the Rags were gaining more puck posession and energy up to that point, and had gotten life from that goal. The 2 fights killed all the momentum NY had gained, it worked.

    The sequence had Callahan/Campbell jousting after the whistle.  Callahan is chippy player who wasn't going to answer the bell.

    Next faceoff, has Halpern jockying for position with Thornton, Rupp taking the draw.  Rupp gets waved out and away he and Thornton go.

    http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/115061

    It was a physical game and both sides were looking to get an edge, seems like hockey to me.  Thornton closed that emotional edge "door", Bickel opened it back up (opened Campbell up too).  Not sure the 13:35 mark is "near the end" of the period either.

    Last night's CLB/NSH game has Shea Weber taking on Jared Boll in a similar game situation as Thornton; 2-1 lead with around 10 minutes left.  Weber also picks up a extra two minutes and the Preds are without there best player for 7 minutes.  CLB scores just after the end of their PP and go on to win 3-2 in a Shoot-out. 

    http://www.hockeyfights.com/fights/115064

    It's a game of emotion and it's not always a skating clown or a 4th-line center that gets involved in the rough-stuff with a 1 goal lead in the 2nd period.

    - Hamilton kept it simple and played solid. Thank God ! I don't think I could have handled another overdramatic meltdown from .............. 

    Watch how this kid keeps his shots low and gets the puck to the net this year. For the most part that his been a strength of his in past play.

    - Bruins had a complete turnaround with their defensive coverages compared to when they played the powerhouse PBruins.

    - Rask ? Good game. Whew ! Very important for the B's success to get steady play from him and Stanley's new found love this year.

    - Very much a team win. I can't really think of one player that stood out from the rest.

    Man can Campbell take a punch, he got rocked and more than often when he fights he needs too. Also I felt the Rags initiated the fights more than the Bruins. At least in last nights fight Thornton threw some punches not dancing n holding like he had been last season. I also thought the timing was good for the fights and so did Donnybrook Jack.

    That's a great story, Crowls.  Post it on your blog. 

    It doesn't answer the question.

    13:35 is closer to the end than the beginning.
