    Can we all agree that Krejci does not always come up big in the playoffs?

    Scoring line: 7gp 1-2-3

    +/-: Even

    FO%: 44.3%

    Just as he was a ghost in the first round against Mtl last year, DK was pretty much a no show for this series.  $5M player?  Not with a performance like this.  I guess 62 regular season points is worth a heck of alot more than it used to be. 

    Sorry for the DK call out thread, he is not alone in how disappointing his play was in the series.  The point is that he was brutally inconsistent during the regular season and that carried over into the first round.

    Nobody "always" comes up big in the playoffs.
    Just my personal opinion, but I don't think anyone deserves "calling out".  When talking about "ghosts", we can pencil in Seguin for 5 games out of 7, and the other top 6 forwards for the whole series(maybe Lucic gets a pass).
    This was a team thing in my opinion.  Defensively, the team did everything necessary to achieve success.  The 3rd and 4th lines over achieved, and for the overall group to "achieve failure", the top 6 had to stink.  The only player I thought was great...was Seidenberg.  Goatending was good enough to win.  Even their golatending became less of an issue as the series went on.
    Despite being one of the top scoring teams in the league, being able to score consistently was a problem all year.  They'd score 5 a night for 3 weeks, then go on a stretch where they couldn't put the puck in the ocean.  For whatever reason, sometimes players and teams are just "off". I hope the B's don't react to this, by making a lot of changes, but rather stay the course by making tweaks. Obviously, the power play has to change, meaning, next year, their going to need one.   I think that's more about strategy than different players though. Working toward the big bomb from the point isn't cutting it, and hasn't been, especially when everyone is afraid to get in the vicinity of the shot.

    If there was ever an example of a "team" failing to deliver....this is it.

    Excellent analysis and well articulated. Sometimes teams, even championship and favored team, are just "off". It happens all the time in sports, and life for that matter. Maybe it has to do with quantum physics. Who knows. But it was clear that TT was not quite on, the O was not quite clicking, and the puck was just not bouncing their way. It happens.

    Sure Krejci isn't anything like the biggest factor for the Bs demise this year but its fair to call him out. His season WAS disappointing and his play-off effort was sh*t. Usually he comes quite close to a point a game in the play offs but this year he didn't even manage half of that. But at a fatty $5 million a year he's likely unmovable.

    I believe Krejci will be back with a force next year. Lets get him a solid linemate who can score. Parise?

    Yes. The former belief that Krecji and Lucic are big-game players is now untrue until proven otherwise.

    sorry, but way too much is being made of this as a "golden" scoring chance for Bergy. The still photo is not representative of what happened:

    1) that puck was in his skates
    2) it was a bang-bang FAST puck in his skates & on the heel of the stick at that
    3) the way his body& stick were facing he would have had to stop the puck, re-adjust, turn and THEN shoot to get the puck on net & Holtby would have been over there by then

    Finally--I don;'t care what anyone says, Krejci got hurt by those idiots slamming the glass on his neck in game 1. He was never 100% right the rest of the series.

    Let's stop looking for scapegoats. Every game was decided by 1 goal. any of those games--including last night's, could have gone to either team. Stuff happens. Pouliot didn't mean for his clearing shot to go into Knuble's pads but it did. That's called a fortunate bounce and it went the Caps' way.

    Yeah, the Bruins could have played better (PP, forecheck) but ultimately it was as evenly played a series as you're going to see and no one, two, or three players individually is to blame.

    Krejci is a good Bruin, what's your problem with him. How quickly people forget last year and his great playoff performance. There is always next year. 62 points isn't horrible. Imagine we had Scott Gomez lol

    can we all agree that hindsight is 20/20? can we all agree that one goal from any of the 18 skaters would have this site looking and feeling a whole lot different today? silly...THE BOSTON BRUINS LOST THE SERIES.... not because of any one factor, or player. THEY were bested by a focused capitals TEAM. i don't get the need to point fingers. get over it, the bruins will not repeat. is that really shocking? it's a REALLY DIFFICULT thing to do. try again next year .

    Re: Can we all agree that Krejci does not always come up big in the playoffs?

    Meh, no, we obviously can't all agree on this one because I completely disagree.  DK's NHL stats:  Regular Season:  .73 pts/game. Playoffs:  .79 pts/game. His stats are similar for Junior and AHL. Goals are hard to come by in playoff hockey. Most players numbers go down, his go up. He is at his best when the pressure is highest. He is a big game player, no question. Does he always score a lot in every playoff game? No, of course not, but if you expect any player to do that you have never watched a hockey game. The Bruins were smothered by a team playing  a style that looked like pre-lockout New Jersey. With Bergeron and Horton injured they were also mostly a one-line team that the Caps could focus on. Add in DK getting hit in the head with a several hundred pound pane of glass, and it's amazing that he scored 3 points.

    Ditto. 

    Consider that Bergeron didn't take a single draw the entire game until he was forced to, late, because of an icing call.  Obviously he's hurt and that's why the "photo" didn't result in a goal.  Krejci may have suffered from the glass pane, who knows ... teams don't disclose such things this time of the year, we all know.  For whatever reasons, the puck didn't bounce the right way in the series - if Pouliot's dump-in is an inch to the left or the right, Knuble's rush doesn't happen ... and so on and so on and so on.  Rest up in the long off season and compete again next year, lads.

    It always comes down to what PC is offered for Krejci. As far as David's performance in the 2012 playoffs the whole team except Seidenberg and Thomas need to look in the mirror.

    Bruins let teams hang around when they have them on the ropes one player can't prevent teams like the Capitals coming back.

    Bergeron couldn't punch in a wobbling puck.....Krejci didn't score in Game 7.....and Welker dropped a pass....sometimes it just doesn't happen despite the players being crazy-talented. What can you do?

    They win as a team and lose as a team. I'm sure they're all equally disappointed in themselves right now. Last year's win has left me still, a sort of calming effect. Sure I'm upset but I feel worse for the players who worked so hard. This year didn't feel like so many before it. Another championship doesn't feel decades away. This stinks to be out early but I'm still proud to be a Bruins fan and have full confidence that PC will ice a team that has a chance to win it all again next year. That's all I ask for. Cheers! It's baseball season. Go Angels!
