    How the game was really lost

    Is there anyone else like me that, when the Bs are up1 or 2 goals late in the 3rd, and see thornton on the ice ( 6 plus minutes to go ) waiting for him to get off the ice, especially when the puck enters the opposing teams zone ( making a line change easier) but see that he fails to and  then in the defensive zone skating like a clown in circles and bang, the game goes to 2-1. Yaya i know the last couple of games hes played better but seriously,against the pens with 6 minutes to go ? To me that gave the penguins enuf fire to do what they did and hey, CLAUDE, whatever happened to timeouts ?

    Problem is they already didn't have any legs.  You start shortening your bench so that the top 9 have to take extra shifts, you're just as likely to end up with mistakes like Lucic and Seidenberg made.  Not Thornton's fault on either goal.

    I wonder how badly the flu bug has hit the Bruins right now.  Rask was supposed to start last night, and Fat Daddy and Horton look like they have no energy.  Marchand doesn't have his usual jump. Seems more likely that something is bothering them than that they're just "tired".

    The Pens dominated nearly the entire game, it was a piss-poor effort by the B's. They did sit on a 2-0 lead and they thought they could get away with it. I feel sorry for Khoudobin, who was terrific for 54 minutes. And the 3 goals, hard to fault him on any. Seidenberg horrible giveaway, same with Dougie, and then you have Lucic, Marchand, Horton, Krecji all moving around like they have cement weighing them down on their skates. Maybe it was the tiredness or whatever, but embarrassing 3rd period effort. I thought Andrew Ference played his butt off, same with Boychuk. Best forward was Bergeron and maybe Peverly, but really off night for forwards and the d-men looked beat in the third period because I felt the forwards gave them no outlets, were not trying. Inexcusable to have a 2-0 lead and sit, and sit, and sit. 

    Ugh...well, at least it was just a game, nothing more. Lost point though. Should have at least gone to OT. I would have taken a 3-2 OT loss, not a 3-2 regulation loss. Very upset with this game.

    Maybe he should have stopped the open look wrist shot from the circle?

    yes, Not A, he thought he had it covered. Still 1 on zero and the shot was 1 on the goalie, and anytime that occurs, it's a pretty good odds for the shooter, or the best odds for a shooter, no?

    Re: How the game was really lost

    nothing was simple. The Bruins were in the game until the middle of the second period when it was obvious that Claude had stressed DEFENCE. It certainly seems like "something" [ flu; coaching; whatever] is affecting some of them. Marchand looks hurt; Lucic never threw a check; Boychuck is reverting to Johnny boo-boo by making wrong decisions like his flop that Sutter skated around easily. Johnny B also was looking the wrong way early in the game when the Pens on left wing seemed to have an open shot at the goal, only Khudo played big. There are moments when Kreji/Lucic/and friend seem to have a solid rush, then lose it all to a poke check. Some comments claim that the Pittsburgh defense is suspect, well, last night, they looked like super stars. this team should be playing more consistently, and Claude needs to replace Thorny with more skills. Plus Johnson, or someone in his spot needs to be giving defense a game by game breather.

    The loss of Chris Kelly ....ifmu want to sit on a 2 goals leed you need your best defensive players...I dont like Looch and Horton these days ...they both  look slow.....

    Horton + Pev + Caron + our 1st round draft pick in 2013 ...to San Jose or to Anaheim

    Bruins get from San Jose. Ryan Clowe, Dan Boyle

    ...............from Anaheim. Bobby Ryan , Sheldon Souray

    You know, one thing that's been pretty consistent with this group for the last four years or so is that when they go as their passing goes.  When they're hitting tape with passes, they're pretty good all around.  When they start missing by two feet here and a foot there, they lose all their flow, defenders close on a guy while he reaches or drags to pick up a pass or kicks it to his stick, and then the next pass is harder or the shooting lane is gone, and turnovers are more common.  Last four games or so, the passing has been off.  That's probably why Julien focused on transition last practice.  They need to focus on it again in the morning skate before the Florida game, I think.

    Add to that the Leafs announced yesterday their ticket prices, which are already the highest in the NHL will be higher next year by an average of 2.5 per cent.

    Re: How the game was really lost

    I think the blame for last night goes right through the lineup and certainly includes Khudo.  I didn't like seeing the 4th line out there so much at the end either, but I suspect Julien was tired of watching the other three lines losing battles and getting outplayed.  The whole team looked tired and sloppy.

    Re: How the game was really lost

    Got totally outplayed, stuck in defence mode.  Breakdowns cost at the end, had they cost all game it would have been 10-2.  A team that has been outshooting opposition all season did not look like that last night.  With only 1 line playing the shots were brutal.

    LKH 4 Shots

    MBS 6shots

    CPP 0shots

    PCT 2 shots.

     

    Though, trying to get back in it, I would def have Pail and Camp on the ice when I am trying to pull the goalie and twice in the last 5 mins. If these guys have nothing in the tank for 5mins left in the 3rd to try to get a goal that they have to be spelled by Thorn, it does not bode well for playoffs.  CJ is a great def specialist but this style will never ever make any sense to me.

    Panda is not better than Bqe and it shows why nobody else picked him up. Then again neither is Whitf.  Please bring some youth to this line with skill, I can take the def lapses, just let us see some potential.

    I'll be looking for this, but for me it's the physical play. When that goes they seem to be a different team

    One team relentlessly attacked - the other was busy defending that attack

    Which one would you rather be ?

    Florida is an automatic win.  They have lost 20 of 27.  I'm excited for everyone to be able to see how bad they are.

    They looked horrible against the Habs, I just stopped watching and went for a skate instead.

    Question is will do teh Bruins score early and sit on their lead ?
