    Yeah, Krejci and Bergeron were big on draws tonight. Krejci was unbeaten i do believe.

    Think I saw a stat on HNIC where Bergeron won 17 of 19.  He owned them.

    Bergeron, Krecji, and Campbell were a combined 36-3 on face-offs.  WOW!

    Don't get too excited !  The high percentages are just another indication that
    philadelphia is having major issues in their dressing room (very divided) and the concentration just isn't there.  I'm sure even the Bruins are wondering where the fight in the Flyers has disappeared to.

    Problems in the room have created the same atmosphere as last year. Watch out if the Flyers can iron out their differences , or at least put them aside for the rest of the playoffs.

    Also a factor - seemed like every faceoff in the MTL series had one or the other center getting kicked out. It hurt both teams, and the normal advantage the Bs have was eliminated.

    Not in this series. Fewer lame penalty calls (although last night had 2 that drove me nuts). Centers are given a bit more in the faceoff circle. Julien is putting 2 centers out there in some key situations, then one of them cycles off immediately if they gain possession. It's a huge advantage for the Bs.

    Huge factor in the game.  You can't sustain pressure if you always lose the puck.

    Last night had a few iffy calls, but it was 4-2 Bruins.  Im not going to complain.  This HASNT been the Montreal series, although there have been some very suspect calls.

    If you havent played hockey, especially at a high level, you really dont understand how much the draws help.  It gives you puck possession and you can do what you want to.  You can create and utilize your offensive plays.  Faceoffs are a HUGE part of winning hockey games.  Win faceoffs, win the physical battles and the rest will come on its own.

    At least there didn't seem to be so many whistles as we had grown accustomed to...  The historical awareness in me sort of ruined the PP goal, though.  I was half thinking of how I'd rather have had a PP at the end of a tighter game (as if the karma for all the late penalties in other games this playoff season was being repaid in that moment - stupid superstitions, voices in your head, all part of it).
