If Boston are cup contenders this year and after watching these 2 gms. i would say our bruins are not near cup contenders. In the east I would rank them at 3 below Philly and TB( it was Pits. but no malkin and a concussed Crosby i think will drop this team down). Philly and TB advantage is coaching where as the Bruins ?
Boston played only 20 mins. of hockey against Det. and our record shows that Boston will have a tough go with the western con. teams. If the Bruins can get to the conference finals I would be splashing cold water in my face. The only Achilles heal for the bruins is gm. 7's. I know the play-offs is a differ season but our PP and d fence zone play is sickening. Chara in yesterdays gm. wash furious with the lack of help from the forwards back checking.
When was the last time the bruins won a gm. 7, I can't even remember?
