    Huge game tonight

    B's must win tonight vs NJ to insure they are in 3rd place in the conference on Thursday vs. MTL.

    there is a scenario where if the B's lose, MTL & TB win, we could plummet to the 6th spot in the conference.


    Hopefully they will snap out of their current funk with this nice string of home games coming up.

    I am not so sure it is a bad thing to be in sixth. It may give the B's some perspective they are badly missing at the moment.


    Besides, there is no such thing as a must-win game against a non-playoff team in a late-march game...

    It's a win win tonight.  NJ wins, Leafs lose, one better spot in the draft.

    They have plenty of time to win more games yet.

    I want that draft pick more than Charlie Sheen wants controlled substances.

    That is what I was thinking BadHab. I do not mind either way although I would be highly satisfied if the B's come out and destroy NJ. This may be impossible due to Lemaire, man I hate that guy.....

    Im so not worried about the draft pick, if its not Larsson or Landeskog Im not going to be super excited.

    I want the B's to win badly tonight . NJ is clearly the hottest team in the league with serious Talent in Kovalchuk and serious Goaltending in Broduer. Never underestimate a hungry team especially when the B's are slumping this bad.

    I want a 5-1 Win bad and more than that I want Seguin to score 2G 1A and lead the team in shots and compete level tonight. He could rite the ship if he can turn it on with the way he's been playing lately.

    ILH: I too want them to win but I am not going to gouge my eyes out, like others on this board, if they lose. you are right in that NJ is hot so I do not imagine it will be a cakewalk. If anything, it will be a good measuring stick to see where the B's are at for the present.

    As for Seguin, do not count on that type of production. He will likely get neither the ice-time or linemates to have a multi-point game. The only way this may occur is through sheer force of will on his part which would be wonderful...

    The Bruins were a six seed last year home ice isn't as important in the NHL playoffs besides the Boston's ice is atrocious one of the reasons the Bruins are so good on the road not concerned. My only concern is the Bruins D suddenly having amnesia about Mr. Cleans "system" something Boston fans are stuck with for now.

    The only thing I fear tonight is Jacques Lemaire. He knows how to extend an opponent's misery.

    The Bruins players better come to play pro-active hockey or they won't stand a chance.

    Every game is a big game from this point on for one reason.  The Bs need to get ready for the playoff.  The regular season is a parity cap driven machine devised to make every game a masterful bore.  With ten games left though, time once again for the Bs to get ready for the real season!

    Playoffs is all that matter. And they have won enough must win games to make the playoffs. Whether they struggle into the playoffs or not. It shouldnt matter really. Everyone should be stepping up come playoffs and grinding out wins. Playoffs is completely different than regular season.

    Hypothetically, if the Canucks get knocked out in the first round, then as a fan who really cares how they performed going into the playoffs. Its all for not. San Jose the other year was first overall and got knocked out in the first round. Yes it is nice to have home ice advantage, but its all the same size rink....Im really not concerned, until the play they bring to the playoffs, which we all hope will be better than they have been playing. But if they win the remaining games, does that really reflect how things will go in the playoffs. NO

    I would say thursday against montreal would be classified as a "big game" for 2 reasons

    1  they win they have a better chance at home ice against the team they will probably play in the first round.  we don't want 4 games in mtl thats for sure.


    2  they need to mentally know that they can beat these little pukes going into the playoffs.  Thomas especially, he's terrible against them for whatever reason.

    Just as long at you get the home ice advantage especially againt Montreal.

    I don't like Boston's chances if they have to play Montreal without home ice advantage.

    Montreal, as much as I hate them, just seem to raise it to another level in the playoffs no matter who they have.

    The Bruins do need to right the ship. Seguin could get good ice time with Kelly and Paverly. If Claude keeps Marchand on the bench he really is a dunce. Marchand may be on the 4th line, which will help Campbell, but until the Bruins move Thornton to the bench, they will still have a glaring weakness. LeMaire has done,with a defensive allignment, what Claude can only wish for. Jaques has remolded the Devils without Parise for which he deserves kudos. The toughest problem IMO is that Bergeron has two ponderous anchors on his wings in Ryder and Recchi. Ryder from lack of commitment and Recchi from age depletion of skills, although REX is a battler.

    Re: Huge game tonight

    i agree home ice against the habs is more important than against ANY other team. but i think everyone forgets the habs haven't won a cup in almost 20 years, and the b's have had the better of their series since '88. this francise is NOT your fathers' habs. btw, the b's did sweep them in their most recent series! bring on the habs!!!!!! as far as must win...that only applies to needing to win a game to get in the playoffs or stay in the playoffs.

    However, the most recent playoffs for the Canadiens resulted in them knocking off the #1 and #2 teams, and that team is much more related to this Habs team than the mess the Bruins beat easily in their last matchup.

    'Bring on the Habs' is a death wish for this year's Bruins.

    We'll see....Price certainly has the talent to play at the same level Halak did last year.  The rest of the team is better than they were last year.

    Hockey being what it is, it wouldn't surprise me if this team (better) doesn't go as far as last year's went. That said, the Habs could go just as far (I don't see it likely that they go further, though).

    Re: Huge game tonight

    I for one, as well as many more, want the Bruins to go deeper in the playoffs.  they need to win games to gain confidence, there are only 10 or so left.

    I prefer they boost themselves up in the standings and montreal stays where they are, as long as we are not playing them for two reasons 1- we haven't had the best of luck in the playoffs agains them ever 2- i hate listening to the CBC announcers and their love of montreal sickens me, i'll throw in a 3rd - PK subban and Pacioretty will be ripe to be the heroes if this series materialized and it would throw more salt in the wounds if we lost.  I'd like buffalo again in the first
