    Bruins not practicing in between game 4 and game 5.

    The Bruins did not skate at all prior to last night's game.  It looks like it was not a good idea in the end. 

    Your thoughts...

    Re: Bruins not practicing in between game 4 and game 5.

    I dislike Clode's decisions, in general. It's a good thing I'm not Cam or Clode would be fired today and Cam step behind the bench to issue the wakeup call of all wakeup calls. Because the way I perceive the outcome is another great win in Boston and a final letdown in Vancouver, unless SOMETHING is done to stir the pot. Desparate times call for desparate measures, and to think this is not a desparate situation (the B's, who must win game 7, have scored only 2 goals there in 3 games) is underestimating the gigantic change in mindset that needs to occur. Hope I'm wrong, but the Bruins have to learn to play as desparate in Vancouver as they do in Boston. Cam can get that out of them. And I think Cam would refrain from putting a defensive specialist (Campbell) on the 3 most important power plays the B's have had in 40 years.

    2 wins away from a stanley cup would be a great time to try a guy with no coaching experience.

    At this point it's not about coaching, it's about motivating and decision making, and learning that there is such a thing as a timeout. Neely has plenty of help available in Houda. I wouldn't trust Geoff Ward to tie a pair of skates however. There's a reason Lemaire fired Clode, and I think Lemaire knows something about hockey. We're down to our last shot here, and Vancouver trips have become like the movie groundhog day for the B's.

    If a player needs a talk from a coach to get motivated in Game 5 of the SCF, then he's in the wrong profession.

    A coach's value in these situations is just the opposite.  He needs to keep the team focussed; to make them disregard the fact that "its a huge game"; to keep them playing the way they have been successful all through the playoffs.  He needs to make those minor adjustments to respond to something the opposition is doing that they may not have expected, or have made their own adjustments to.  Making major changes midway through the SCF is a recipe for disaster.  The Canucks tweaked their lineup by taking the apparently nervous Ballard out, and putting the surprisingly calm Tanev in.  One could argue that one change made a significant difference in the outcome of Game 5.

    Both teams have accomplished a tremendous amount.  Frankly, it's a shame that only one will win, because both deserve it.

    Re: Bruins not practicing in between game 4 and game 5.

    You're right about the Canuck change. But if I were a Bruin and it was Cam giving me a pep talk versus Julien, I think I'd fear the wrath of Cam a bit more. I don't see a Vince Lombardi type speech from Clode. He's more of a stay the course type. And that's the reason, I think, they're having trouble in Vancouver. I snesed no desperation, and we all know what the comparative hit totals were.

    Plus, and I say this again, his ability to run a power play is awful. Historically awful. Campbell has one (1) goal in 23 playoff games, and Clode thought he was suddeny going to explode?

    Re: Bruins not practicing in between game 4 and game 5.

    I don't think not skating before the game made a difference.  The B's were clearly outskating during it at both ends.  Granted the 'Nucks are faster, but you shouldn't need to light a fire under the rears of anyone in the Playoffs.  Say what you want about the Habs, but they play every game "all business" all year.

    I'm still confused as to how Claude got them this far.  Too much tactical restraint yesterday away from the "Garden," and Claude is always the picture of forgiving restraint.  You don't necessarily need a high-strung scarface like Tampa Bay  has, but Claude is way too politically correct and safe-speaking.  If we pull this off, I'm not sure how much is because of him and how much in spite.

    Re: Bruins not practicing in between game 4 and game 5.

    Hey Loyal, you may think 5 road losses in a row is acceptable. In the game of hockey it's called "Honey, where are my golf clubs?" That's what the B's will be asking if CLODE isn't removed pronto.

    I'm a true B's fan, and I know this ship can be righted. But not with Claudimus Minimus and his cartel of low scoring road losses.

    I'm a true fan of the Bruins, I am NOT a fan of Claude. I hope you can understand that. Not liking a component of a team doesn't correlate with not liking the team itself. It's called wanting what's best for the team. And from the power play, to the 5 straight road losses, to the inability to use timeouts, to the underuse of Seguin and overuse of Campbell (last night) it goes on and on. It's a tribute to the heart of these guys that they've gone this far, but now they are in uncharted territory, needing to win a 7th game on the road, with a coach who has no charts nor clues.

    Maybe CJ wanted to give the boys an extra day off b4 game 7.
    I couldn't figure out why the B's couldn't make a tape to tape pass in period 1 game 5. This explains it. 

    Big mistake by CJ , UNLESS by some mirracle of god, the Bruins win the next two.

    They lost on a wierd bounce off the boards and you concluded it was them not skating prior to the game?  What is Kelly's shot off the crossbar or Seguins drive off the goalpost went in?

    And they have said that today was the last practice.  If they win tomorrow night I still think that a practice would be good before game 7!

    Practice? We're talking about practice man!

    Any excuse will do, I guess. It's funny, some were shining up the Stanley Cup after the game 4 win, now after the game 5 loss some want Claude Julien fired.

    I think that's a bit reactionary but whatever. The Bruins should hold serve at home and win game 6. Motivation won't be a problem for game 7.
