    Game 20: Bruins at Capitals GDT

    http://www.boston.com/sports/hockey/bruins/extras/bruins_blog/2013/03/game_20_bruins_2.html

    Who's hot: Bergeron has two goals and five assists during a four-game points streak for the Bruins. Seguin has goals in consecutive games. … Holtby was pulled from a Feb. 27 start against the Flyers, but in the three starts sandwiched around that one he's stopped 89 of 90 shots. Ribeiro has eight multi-point games already this season.

    Injury report: Washington defenseman Mike Green (groin) is day-to-day. Forwards Brooks Laich (groin) and Marcus Johansson (upper body) and defensemen Dmitry Orlov (upper body) and Jack Hillen (upper body) are on injured reserve.

    The Caps, 6-4-0 in their last 10 games, are ranked 14th in the 15-team Eastern Conference. They have been a much more respectable 7-6-0 since their 1-5-1 start in January. In a short (48-game) season, a slow-out-of-the-gate start may have sunk their post-season chances.

    Projected lineup:

    Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
    Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Tyler Seguin
    Danny Paille-Chris Kelly-Rich Peverley
    Jay Pandolfo-Greg Campbell-Shawn Thornton

    Zdeno Chara-Johnny Boychuk
    Dennis Seidenberg-Dougie Hamilton
    Andrew Ference-Adam McQuaid

    Tuukka Rask
    Anton Khudobin

    Healthy scratches: Aaron Johnson (D), Chris Bourque; Lane MacDermid

    Storylines: Bourque was scratched Sunday night, but could get the call against the Caps, the franchise that gave him his pro start. If he dresses, Pandolfo likely sits, although Pandolfo played well against the Canadiens. ... Rask is the likely starter in the Boston net. He was not at his sharpest against the Canadiens, and coach Claude Julien likely will want him to get right back in there. ... Paille's speed gave a slight boost to the Kelly-Peverley line, which previously had Bourque working at left wing. ... At some point, Julien will work Johnson into the blue-line mix. The No. 3 pairing of Ference-McQuaid struggled vs. the Habs.
    _________________________________________________________________________

    Oh no look out the Chris Bourque backers are going to be up in arms, KPD is suggesting Bourque might be  healthy scratch. Everyone talk about penalties if they want.

    PS. Shup - copy n paste what you want to discuss into a new comment section so you don't take a whole flippin page up responding. Ok ?

    I wonder if Alzner will make the crying gesture toward Lucic tonight like he did last yr in the playoffs.

    Alzner will probably hide behind Erskine all night.

    Thornton might as well stay home if he lets someone other than himself fight Erskine tonight. I was never a huge Thornton supporter but now I'm starting to feel bad for the guy.

    The B's have to jump on the Capitals right away. They have been playing better of late. This game is Not to be taken lightly. You people already know but I didn't know Emelin had titanium plates in part of his face., Well don't cheap shot anybody and he will not have to worry about the consequence.

    The Caps picked up Volpatti (formerly a punching bag for Van) so I think ST can probably goad him into one. Erskine seems ready for his annual fistfest with Milan...

    I see a Bruin team motivated by Sunday's loss to the Habs and last April's exit to the Caps.

    Bruins very Big Time over the Caps tonight - 6-1.

    Bourque more speed may be able to get back check a little quicker. That is all I could say JW
