About Me: Love the Sox/Bruins/Pats, born in Boston a million years ago, now displaced. Played and coached in a much simpler time. Still get a little too shook up when the B's or Sox lose. Oh, and soccer is not a sport.

    Posted 03/27/2015 01:32:36 EDT

    It does "seem" like they blow a lot of leads late, but not in the last minute or so.  Its fair to say they arent very good holding that third period lead though. A quick look at the other teams coming more »

    Whew, 6 losses in a row at the most critical moment in the year. And #7 is a given. And people blaming the refs when they give a game away with 38 seconds left. I'm thinking "unwatchable" doesn't even more »

    No and no. It's going to be absolutely weird having no playoffs to watch for the first time since, what, '07?  That whole anxious anticipation and nervous excitement this time of year, usually lasting more »

    Showing a teeny bit of toughness would be nice, but fights are pretty low on my list as I watch them lose miserably night after night.  "Going down swinging" is not what they are doing. Looks more lik more »

    Posted 03/22/2015 03:12:11 EDT

    Of course PC is first.  Among players, you have to slot Lucic #1 with his salary vs being an absolute shadow of his former self.  Smith is on the list for sure, but it was only recently that PC handed more »

    "Haters" or not, this team has gone from a Presidents' Trophy winner to a playoff DNQ in one season, embarrassing themselves when it counts the most and clinging to injury excuses. PC has to be held a more »

    Posted 03/20/2015 12:17:58 EDT

    Agree with this. Among the B's problems, the overall disasterous play by the defnese has to be the most glaring. The Bs showed some yips against Montreal in last years playoffs, but the stuff we saw l more »
