    [QUOTE]i'm as positive as they come, but i'm not going to play the overconfidence game. I really think fans continue to take the Caps for granted, and I think that is juvenile thinking. It's not easy to watch this series so far, except that I think it's been very good playoff hockey. It's too much heart-racing. Let's win in OT. Go B's!
    Posted by dannycater[/QUOTE]
    That's what makes playoff hockey special. I love being on the edge of my seat. The core of this team won 3 game 7's last year so they know how to win a series. Call me a fool but I'm just not ready to worry yet.

    1-1 with only a goal from being 2-0!

    Much better than the fakers in Vancouver!

    The top two lines are going to score. When they do, they'll start pouring them in. I would like to see a little more willingness to take the puck down low. Too many shots from the point and the top of the circles, of course, the Caps defense has had something to do with this, but, they are helping this goalie out with thte shots they are taking. He's played well, but I dont think he's faced the kind of shots the Bruins are capable of producing.

    We have us a series, thats not a bad thing. The B's now know that the Cap's aren't going away, and i'm sure they're o.k with that. The games will only get tougher from here on out and i for one think the Bruins will rise to the occasion.

    Hey Nas, still not afraid of " the green horn third string goalie" or the " crappy AHL goalie" ? Sorry to tell you, but the Caps look to be in it for the long haul.
    It is one thing to be condfident, but it is just dumb to underestimate any opponent in the NHL playoffs.

    What B's fans think, positive or otherwise, has no bearing on what the players are thinking or how they will play or win/lose a series. I think the Bruins will handle the Caps and win the series, i don't think the B's care what i think.

    They are shooting into him.  Has he robbed someone of a goal?  Has he really even been challenged?  How many rebounds have had Bruins at his doorstep.

    I see this series as how the Bruins are playing and not how the Caps are playing.  How many threatening shots has Ovie put on goal?

    Bruins should be scoring at least 2-3 goals a game.  And if they did/do what they should do, they should put this series away in short order.

    Seen this so many times before. Team that should win/dominate, doesn't, and the other team gains momentum, and confidence. Bruins need to go out next game and demonstrate their determination......and find ways to get pucks past Holtby, before he believes he's Dryden incarnated.

    2 games decided in OT & double OT. Not a walk in gthe park by any means, and yes, I'm concerned, until I see the Bruins break the Caps back-end.

       Last year at this time, they were down 2-0, and the goalie they had to find a way to beat, was Carey Price.
    Holtby is NOT Carey Price.
    'Confidence is high'.
    ...And in the "things I never thought I would say" department, I have been impressed with the overall play of Denis Wideman Surprised.
    There. I said it. I have to lie down now.

    If the Bruins can't get any quality shots, or don't capitalize on their chances (Marchand had a beauty late in the game), they won't need Holtby to be Carey Price. But you're right, it looked alot worse after the first two games last year. We'll see how they play in Washington.

    If I had known Dale Hunter was going to watch 1994 Devils 1-3-1 trap videos I might not have been so confident. Still waiting patiently for Lucic, Krejci, Peverley, Seguin and Marchand to wake from their sleep walk.

    Time for the Bruins to get mad!

    It's the 1-4 defense.  At times the Bruin defenseman with the puck in his own end has time to take a coffee break because nobody on the Caps is coming in to forecheck . 
    It's called anti-Hockey.
    Hunter has convinced his players it's the only way to beat the Bruins. He's watched games against the Rangers, applied it on the last game these two played and has it instilled in for the playoffs.
    Only hope of change is they're at home and get away a little from this system.
    Although if the Bruins score first then I think the Caps will open up and hope the Bruins take advantage.

    B's play a more relaxed game on the road, or seem to pounce on opportunities much better. It should lead to some open space. Julien and his coaches will work in a better approach. With that said, I have never read anything more ignorant than the posts about Holtby. He's an AHLer, he has no business, blah, blah, blah. He's got an 0.80 or whatever goals against average in two games on the road. I am taking the guy as seriously as possible. He tried to poke check on the one goal in game 2, otherwise he was perfect. Again, I am a believer, I am a confident fan, but I'm not naive, and this series is a battle that will be won ultimately by how the B's respond to the adversity. Another ridiculous post from earlier here was the downplay of Ovechkin's influence. Guy was the best player on the ice all game 2. Seguin looks like an AHLer himself in comparison. Seguin better start playing like the All-Star he was in the reg. season. Team needs to respond.

    Lots of e-ink on a very simple point - the Bruins need their top players to find the net.  People want to come down on Seguin and hey, yeah, he's their top scorer in the regular season, but he's waaaay down on my list of guys who need to remember what the playoffs are all about.  I don't mind as long as they're workign at it - it makes sense to ramp up slowly in a way, and you want to get faster and higher energy, but you have to stay in control and play your game still or you end up like Pitt v. Pha.

    The list of forwards starts Krejci and Lucic are at the top of the list, then add Bergeron and Marchand, then probably Peverley even ahead of Seguin.  But just like last year, the D has to be better at making quick passes and getting the puck to forwards who can break down the trap.  Remember the game winner in the 1-0 game v. Tampa - a good turn-around play that let the Bruins attack with speed.

    Really Missing Mark Recchi IMO.

    I stated it a few threads earlier, if the offense continues to sputter, I would be switching up the lines. You just have to get Lucic & Krejci going if this team is going to have any shot. Promote Pouliot, demote peverley,

    Segs-Krejci-Lucic  or Segs-Krejci-Pouliot

    Does a 6 game series (minimum), with 4 very close games and tied after 4, constitute getting smoked.  If so the B's still have an opportunity to confirm your bold statements.
