    Krug doesn't see one minute on the 5 on 3. Absolutely ridiculous coaching!

    I didn't notice that but yeah, that's curious considering his offensive skills.

    Still early, but this is typical Julien.  No power play, starting to ruining another young player in Hamilton, I predicet he will be gone next year, and rarely makes in game changes.  But I guess it works, Stanely cup champion and make it last year.  Who am I to argue.

    What do you think of Iginla's shooting this season ?

    Especially where he is shooting from ?

    Gotta give Detroit credit. They were pretty good at clearing pucks and blocking shots. It was definitely a one-goal game by puck possession and game flow standards.

    Todays game showed a little of last years we-can-turn-it-on-when-we-want-too. The Bs cannot do this against a skilled team like the Red Wings.

    @Hang freaking out is when you start seeing "trade this guy and trade that guy" threads. Criticizing the Bruins during a game thread doesn't fir "freak out".

    Panic fan?  What are you, the child with the Black and Gold bedroom and matching bed sheets?  

    They beat them a week ago because the Wings were half a step slower, having played the night before.  I'm making an observation based on the recent history of the Bruins struggling against the Wings over the past 4+ seasons.   It's called match ups.  See?   

    Nothing about "the season is lost."  Grow up, man.

    [/QUOTE]

    No. That would be my 8 year old cousin. But you said that they "can't" beat the wings playing a puck possession game. Does that only apply to the Wings? Or does it also apply to other finesse teams such as the Canucks, Blackhawks, and the like? Will they beat them every time, or even a majority of the time? Maybe not, but why would you deviate from "your game", when it has proven to win a majority of the games league-wide? It's their strength; that's the type of team they've developed.

    Whenever someone says that a team (and a good team at that) "can't" win something, I just know they're a panic-button fan. I don't think that's debatable.

    [/QUOTE]

    When the word "can't" is used it's really semantics.  The reader has to figure out whether it's connotative or denotative.  Just like when I read you're phrases "I just know" and "don't think that's debatable."  Because it is.  You don't know me nor I you.  So, we can mince meanings all day.

    But, my reotrt is simply to address the name calling YOU began.  Not me.  Don't try to define my fandom (hence, my nonsensical thing about "black and gold" bedrooms.  Get it?  I'm not on a bridge. I'm not panicking.  I don't even know what you 'mean' by that - oops, let's not get back into post-structuralist linguistics again (read up on 'signification' and Barthes or Saussure)

    Back to your point.  I said the Bruins can beat the Pens.  Yes, they can beat the Canucks and the Black Hawks (and, if healthy, would have won the Cup last year IMO).  The Bs were 0-4 against the Wings coming into the opener, going back to 08-09.  Having actually watched ALL those games, Babcock plays the Bs with an opportunistic strategy, maximizing his finesse guys - who are the best in the biz as playmakers, imo - when a breakdown shows.  

    So, they lost today. Big deal.  78 more games to go.  Not for lack of effort.  But, they have to be faster in the Wings' zone.  And play almost zero mistake hockey against Detroit.  

    Oh, and the PP? It's been looking like last year again the past 3 games.  THey have to fix that.

    First I have ever heard the Bruins are "having a decent game" when they are down 3-1 and being dominated down low in front of their own net.

    Take your goggles off.

    Haha doggy you have to admit that was agreat game between two of the top teams in the league.  Pretty much what I expect when they play eachother, a 50/50 split.  This would be a great playoff matchup.

    Tough spot to be picky with CJ there though. Krug saw no 5 on 3 time because the puck stayed in the Wings zone for all but 10 seconds of the PP time. Regardint that PP, Krejci is making too many soft passes and everyone is guilty of missing the net at key moments. They should've just got the puck on net and then outworked the Wings for the rebounds. Everyone was trying to be too fine.

    +1  That 5 on 3 was as if they were skating in molasses.  Gotta get in front of the net.

    We already know the PP stinks.  That hasn't changed in years.  B's worked hard and played a good game.  They lost.  It's October.  Go Sox.

    Fair enough, dez.  They've been guilty of that before.  Brickley also mentioned post-game he thought the point men on the 2 man advantage (Iginla and Chara) were too far back to create enough in-close chances from that position.

    Bartkowski has to play in some games too.  He's young and good.  Krug's been playing well enough to merit him the ice time. Hamilton, while he hasnt been necessarily playing poorly, hasnt been playing as well. So who sits? Hamilton.  Its probably just a few games anyway.

    I personally liked what I saw from Hamilton more than I like what I've seen from Bart so far. Bart seems like he's back to being tentative and not making good plays as a result. I hope to see Hamilton back in the lineup next game.
