    Re: Great Game: Bad Result

    Another loss but another up up with people routine? Is the spirit of Mike Sullivan haunting these threads?

    Sorry. Not good enough. I don't taste back to back cups at this moment in time. The Bs obviously need an other dependable defenseman, ie. not Corvo (there I said it) and another forward who can score more routinely. For too long its like they've been drawing straws as to who will score goals from one game to the next and they seem to be at the point where everyone is saying 'Hey, it's not my turn!'
    Time to start drawing from that cap space. And that Power Play has never really been dealt with has it??

    Man, am I  p*ssed off.

    Losing on a 4 on 3 o.t goal, relax, we play them 3 more times. If the Rangers sweep the B's, then i might be worried, and really, not that much. 34 shots to 33, good goaltending and Gaborik is a sniper. I say if and thats IF we play the Rangers in the playoffs, the B's win in a 7 game series.

    They're the top scoring team in the league. They won't score 6 every night though.

    I think it's just nice to lose and big game to a team that you can really respect and tip your cap to.  The Rangers matched the Bruins toughness, threw checks, blocked shots, and you don't have any of the Vancouver/Montreal nonsense of trying to make the refs decide the game.

    A great game free of diving, faking, running away, and hiding behind the refs.  Just good hockey.  Take a note Vancouver and Montreal.  That's how you get respect around the league.

    Today was a great game for the purists. Hard fought by both sides and it's decided with 3.6 seconds left in OT. The title of this thread is very fitting.

    Bad play by Chara with 17 sec left. He missed his clearing attempt.
    The Rangers are used to play bouncing puck because they are playing half of their games on bad ice at MSG.

    I agree with this, its no shame to play a good game against a good opponent and lose.I enjoyed every bit of it, but not the result. The game had a great flow,great goaltending,penalty killing and both teams were into it. The game with the Nucks had no flow, too many PP's, bad officiating and the usual whining by the Nucks G.M & coach afterward. I'll take the game today anytime.

    Re: Great Game: Bad Result

    I hope you guys are right. Being a Bs fan for almost 40 years has made me the pessimist I am even with last year's cup. Fact is the Rangers and the Red Wings make me cr*p my pants when they play the Bs. The Bs have some decent forwards, some really good forwards in fact but there isn't a single one I would call a sniper.
    Still totally p*ssed off with the number of losses lately regardless of the schedule.
    There are no major injuries (apart obviously from Savard) and Krejci is starting to push the envelope but he needs help. Unacceptable when a couple of defenseman score your only goals. Ference's lack of discipline is another issue all together and in fact that's been a hallmark of the Bs play as of late.

    With all due respect, I think you're too upset.  The Bruins took a point from the best team in the league right now.  They lost because they had to play 3 minutes in overtime 3-on-4.  I thought they carried the play for long stretches and this would be a classic playoff matchup.  Good teams make mistakes and take bad penalties sometimes.  Let's wait and see how they respond tomorrow against Philly.

    Re: Great Game: Bad Result

    Problem is the Bs have lost a fair number of games against teams who are meant to be their Cup competiton. Rangers and Nuckers recently too. Sorry but close ain't good enough. There's only so many times we can say 'It'll be different in the play offs'.  From the evidence here it won't be. They need a shake up. No doubt in my mind.

    That's just poor analysis and a cop-out bim.  

    If the Bruins get a 3 minute 4-on-3 powerplay in overtime, I bet they win.  Blaming the loss on Tuukka makes me think you didn't watch the game.

    Correction Fletch...they had to play 3 minutes and 40 seconds 3 on 4 lol...I enjoyed the game even though they lost, and yes I thought the Bruins carried the play for the most part...they were doing a great job on the penalty kill, if Chara dumps the puck ALL the way to the Rangers end with 17 seconds, it goes to a shootout.

    dez - Thanks for the info.  Who knows?  Maybe they would've clicked eventually without Thornton's "insight."   Without question a solid team.  And yeah, it's a path we Bruins fans know all too well.  Cheers!

    I saw a goalie get beat, short-side, from a wristshot above the dot.

    Come on bim09 - he made two great saves in that same sequence just prior to the goal.

    Nobody could get to the 2nd rebound (except Gabby) and nobody could be faulted for not stopping the fluttering shot.

    I'm willing to give Chara a pass on this, because I think he played the entire OT.
    If Julien can't trust any of his d-men to be on the ice, in critical situations, without the big guy, out there holding their hand, it might be time to bring in another shut-down type d.
    With Ference likely to get the next couple of games off, Chara may end up playing 30+ minutes a game.
