    Johnny Boy

    Boychuck needs to be called out a bit here.  Not just because of his gaffe last night, but for several times in this series where he has been unable to contain and keep up with Toronto's speed. Yes, he has a rocket shot, but a Dman earns his paycheck in his own zone.

    I think his 21 blocked shots have been pretty helpful.

    Are you out of your mind?  Boychuk has been a warrior out there, blocking shots, scoring goals, (with a little luck, he would have had his third in the series last night).  You could equally blame Horton on that bank pass last night, who looked like a statue after missing it.  Also, Bartkowski was way up ice on the left side.  Julien should be called out for inserting Bartkowski in the lineup over Hamilton.

    Name one of our defenseman who can keep up with Toronto's speed? Boychuk should get a medal for his blocking ability.

    Boychuck sacrifices the body like no other, delivers big hits and has a rocket of a shot. Boychuck is the least of the Bruins worries right now.

    Boychuk is the least of our problems on defense.  Two changes I want to see next game: Hamilton in the lineup, and Ference never seeing another second on the powerplay.  His bobble leading to Toronto's first goal was brutal.  The Bartkowski experiment should be over as well.  He looked nervous on his few shifts out there & nearly coughed the puck up on several occasions.

    Re: Johnny Boy

    Leads the NHL during the playoffs in limping off the ice after a shift. His body must look like a rainbow by now............and he keeps coming back for more colour. 

    This is a player who gives it all. Love what he brings to the Bruins defence.

    Boychuk did not lose the game.  Nor has his play been anything what you expect, I will accept warrior.  The team was flat, one line needs to wake up.  A team needs to score more than one goal to win a game.  I am as optimistic as I was two years ago in the Montreal series.  Bring it on!

    CJ didn't want to break up Chara and Seidenberg.

    Re: Johnny Boy

    Loves to play this kind of rock "em sock "em hockey. Obviously still has his brain malfunctions, but the Bruins need him. Bartkowski was tentative, but what do you suppose claude's directions were ? Same with Hamilton as he was very tentative and reluctant in his one game. Claude wants experience, but is being beaten by speed, youth and Bruins style agressiveness. Helps to have a very hot goalie as Reimer proved, and as Rask shows in every game

    Bruins are up 3-2, not down.  Claude is not being beaten, he is winning.

    Stop picking on Boychuck, it's not all his fault the B's couldn't get it done last night. Unfortunately we are headed to a game 7 boys, and it's a crapshoot with this bunch

    He misses the net a lot.  He also isn't the best with the puck.  Physically, he's very good.  Puckhandling, hand/eye, passing etc aren't his strong points.

    What element of watching last nights lazy embarrassing effort makes you think the B's are gonna storm into Toronto on Sunday and close this out? this is their MO, I'm used to it. it's best to stop being a blind homer and delusional...will save you the frustration and anger after game 6. Just sayin.

    Game 1, Game 3 and Game 4.

    JUST SAYIN.

    As for last night's effort, it was a one goal game.  Come down off the ledge.  Or jump.  Either is fine.

    I'm not shocked that someone is predicting it going to a game 7. I'm shocked that you have a friend.

    I think it is more likely that the Bruins end it tomorrow...

    I do not think it matters where these teams play if the Bruins give full effort and i expect it tommorrow night they will win.

    Re: Johnny Boy

    My take is that it's been a terrific series. The Bruin's MO is to come out tentative and flat after a win and that certainly was the case last night. I wouldn't pick on any one of the Bruins defensemen, because aside from Chara, they have all made their share of mistakes. Rask has usually covered for them but last night the two mistakes proved fatal. No doubt about it, Boychuk is a warrior, plays hard and blocks a ton of shots, but he also turns the puck over more than any other backliner because in the defensive end he very predictably fires the puck around the boards either to an opposition defenseman at the point or to a Bruin who is covered and can't break free out of the zone. Having said that, I really believe that Boychuk has had the best series of all the defensemen, except for Chara----certainly better than Bartkowski, McQuaid, Redden, Ference and even Seidenberg.

    And you need to be called out for starting a garbage thread! The guy's been the most consistent d-man in this series! Do you EVEN WATCH THE GAME EVER! Or, do you just look at a highlight & think it's been that way the whole game, or series & spout this horsseshit!!
