In response to bogie6's comment:
Good point not to seek retaliation. On the hits side, it seemed to me that the Bruins , with some exceptions like Bergeron, played a sloppy game. Boychuck led the dumb moves and needs to wake up for tonight's match. Both goals were softies as some of the B's were just floating. The third period was a bit more controlled, so Claude noticed. What to do with Eriksson is a big problem. he should have had two, at least. He skates,he defends, but he's supposed to score.
He will. He's a very skilled player. Just gotta get him settled.
People forget how slow Horton started out in his first 10 games here, among others.
I swear that Johnny Boychuck is Forrest-Gump-like slow. I can just hear the little guys on his shoulders' dialogue:
"Hit him with that pass, Johnny. It's really simple"
"Wait! Check out that stretch pass!"
"Leave the stretch pass alone! Hit this guy right here!"
"Oh boy, the defender is coming, reverse it, quick!"
"Oh God, what do I do"
"Oh s***, I don't know!"
"Eat it Johnny! Eat it!"
Johnny take slapshot. Johnny make big check. Johnny win game.
