    Looks like Pandolfo is going to replace Bourque on the third line. This suggests CJ is more worried about shoring up that line's defence than trying to spark them offensively. Jay is not the long term answer, though.



    We know this for sure and so does B's management.

    I think the big thing will be that the B's get ahead, stay ahead. I'll take a 2-1 win any day of the week over these last 2 collapses.

    Speaking of which, they will soon be doing something about it.

    Danny, I see this game much like the first game against the leafs earlier this season when the Bs' scored first and went into extreme shutdown mode. It was a response to losing to the Sabres shamefully and I see them doing the same tonight as a response to the caps game.

    Here is TO's projected lineup tonight for anyone who is interested:

    Seems the like B's should destroy them tonight but they really have not destroyed anyone this year, despite their record.

    They need to scratch Thornton tonight for safety reasons. This guy may feel compelled to accomodate either Orr or McLaren. Both of these guys did a pretty good number on Scott and last night McLaren crushed Dziurzynski into a semi-coma vs Sens. These guys are another level above the John Erskin's of the NHL. Not worth the risk for Thornton.

    "B's hold high-energy AM skate prior to facing Leafs tonight, w/Khudobin the first goalie off. Pregame update: ^CS"

    The Bruins should have destroyed the Slaps, they better play hard.

    Some of the posts by TO fans in this article on tonight's game is pure comedy gold:

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=417577

     

    Why on earth would the B's Norris trophy candidate (Chara) or their first line winger (Lucic ) feel compelled to fight Orr and Mclaren, assuming of course that they would ever be on the ice at the same time (the TO boys only play 5mins a night). Stupid people....

    Not happening Z.. ST is not afraid of these guys..I think he has fought these guys in the past..and beat them, at least with Orr,  won't bother him a bit getting down and dirty with them if the need arises, and it will happen rather early as I look to the Leafs trying to get the Bruins involved  early in the game.. Expect some fireworks tonite... should be a good one ...

    I do not want to see Chara fight anyone at the moment. If Thirnton is not ready to fight any one off them, Then McDermott should do te honor. I don't know if he's playing but if he is then would be a good option.

    I am not sad to see Bourque on waivers but I also don't think Pandolfo deserves 3rd line dury over Paille!

    Paille and Pandolfo will probably alternate in that position all night. Will not help line cohesion of course.

    They look a little sluggish to start. The fight by Adam hasn't got them to wake up yet.
