Nice post, a good assessment of the play. Rask looked like he had the flu.
In response to Macfact's comment:
We went to see the young Providence B's in Vancouver Saturday night. I was treated to to goals by none other then Riley Smith. The kid deserves to stay right where he is at on the second line.
Assessment of an embarrassing night in Vancouver. (brought my fiance to her first game ever...only good thing that came out it is she hates the Canucks officially now)
Is it my imagination or is Rask in his head way to much. He stopped having fun. He is letting in awful goals. Just awful ones.
Spooner is struggling wtih consistent play.
Caron is just fine on 4th line but still looks like trade bait for a 3rd line winger. You can bundle him up with Marchand and not a bad deal for a good winger.
Johnson and Fraser were forgetable. Soderberg carried them all night. Campbell Bergeron and Krejci doing it all. Mr Boston Iggy...standing up for all of us B's fans on the west coast while Thorton is out.
I don't know why Krug got the blame. Boychuck and Chara were flat. Seidenberg live is like watching a determined shark going for his kill. He is just awesome. Bartowski has made a home I think in so many ways. So poised a kid. Really like his game.
No fun to get heckled in Vancouver. But there was lots of Bruins fans. Really nice to see. So many No. 4 and No. 17 shirts walking around. I sat in a crowd of B's fans. They were actually very nice. Flu bug and the Providence Roster. We were bound to lose a few. Seeing Luongo in Person and his injury antic I now understand why he needs someone to pump his tires and Kesler is quite the dirty player at times. Lots off camera stuff.
Wish you had all been there would have bought you a beer. But I got my christmas present early.
I am coming home in Jan. Is it worth catching Monarchs and Providence Bruins????? while I am there. Big Boys are on another West Coast Trip. Cheers and Merry Christmas to you all.
