In response to stevethebloviatingmachine's comment: Good one! Any chance the Bruins can get more than one or two goals against Buffalo? If their expansion team quality offense can get a few goals behi more »

In response to shuperman's comment: Im confused as to why Rask is the goat in this game. He didnt stand on his head but he didnt stink either. He won. He actually made some quality saves I thought more »

A bit depressing that beating the Sabres in overtime is cause for celebration. That was nearly a back-breaker by Rask. I know it happens sometimes during an 82 game season, but this team is running more »

I ran the math back when the trade happened. From what I recall, they could have kept Seguin that season, but it would have meant EL or league-minimum players on two of the top three lines. It also more »

In response to jmwalters' comment: The point isn't to gloat but to suggest that sometimes we overvalue the players on the teams we cheer for. All fan bases do it...some more than others (ex. TO) That more »

It is curious that replacing Iginla with Griffith could make such a big difference on offense; after all that's the main difference between the roster now and the #3 offense from last season. -- Proud more »

In response to Bruinfaninnewjersey's comment: Paille right in front of the goal alone and he tries to pass??? Symptomatic of the whole team chocking their sticks right now. -- Proud user of Chambraign more »

In response to SanDogBrewin's comment:
It did die...
Krug had to clean it up.
I guess Krug knows CPR.

The puck went to Kelly, and offense didn't die? I must be imagining things.

Lex, I think it has more to do with Julien placing team ahead of individual numbers. To him, a first line scoring say 15 fewer goals but a third line keeping the puck in the offensive zone more is a more »

In response to dannycater's comment: So what you're really saying is that even though his GAVG is 27th in the NHL this year (2.52) as opposed to 2.04 and a .930 sv pct (.914 this year), that this year more »

In response to dannycater's comment: As for giving up 2 goals, no he's not been giving up just 2 goals. Rask is giving up way too often more than 2 goals and the B's offense is just not good enough to more »

How about a team top five in offense and defense?

In response to Not-A-Shot's comment: Impossible. Almost every shot is different. That's pretty much what they say in the article. They admit is a long way from perfect, but it has some interesting ch more »

I don't know how to tell you this gently, so I'll just be blunt:
Those are last year's stats.

A shame they didn't do Rask last year vs Rask this year.

In response to SanDogBrewin's comment: I'll take it. Looking at the replay, Eriksson was able to do that with Scandella doing everything he could to lift his stick. It almost not making it is more a more »

Anyone know if any other teams do the 3F1D OT setup as much as Boston does? The NBC folks were talking about it as if it were really strange, and only being done because it was an out-of-conference g more »

I'm surprised no one has commented about the picture of Rask with Fletcher during the first intermission.

The argument for Krejci's importance is simple. His return makes the lines: Lucic-Krejci-X Marchand-Bergeron-Smith Kelly-Soderberg-Eriksson Comparatively unimportant 4th line. When X was Iginla, it wa more »

There was lots of Campbell towards the end of that game because Fraser had his butt stapled to the bench. Whether there was a specific event to trigger that, or simply that he wasn't doing anything us more »

In response to dannycater's comment: No offense, Dr, but aren't predictions supposed to be based on what is going on during the season to date? Isn't that the reality? No? Or is it based on hope. Yes, more »
