The Same Bruins team?

- Rask is injured

- Thomas isn't a Vezina Candidate this year,

- No Horton, No Ryder, Paille injured, no Kaberle, No Dr.Recchi.



Washington is more playoff built this year than they have been in years past. Additions of Joel Ward, Jeff Halpern, Vokoun, Brouwer, and Hamrlik.


Seguin could've made up for the scoring gap there. Rolston + Pouiliot=Dr. Recchi. Ryder can be replaced by increase offensive output from the rest of the top 9. Kaberle wasn't that much of a factor for the Bruins team after his arrival last year. Boston fans complained about his lack of scoring on the PP.

As for screwing up Boston's match ups during last-year's playoffs: My apologies. I was too focused on the Canucks :)

Last year, the other teams that faced the Bruins had much more success scoring goals on them than we did, they actually shot on net, instead of shooting wide on purpose... This year, the Caps have 11 goals so far - they shoot on net. AV's fear of a good goaltender makes a goalie appear better than they actually are playing, most likely because he can't come up with offensive strategy so a good goalie looks like an unbreakable wall to him.

Hunter, while preaching defensive play, still has his team generating quality chances, not just taking weak perimeter shots or shooting wide on purpose. If the Caps keep that up, they should close this out.

Holtby didn't have much of a chance on that deflection. C'mon caps, push back, send the B's on vacation.

They did have one of the funniest lines I've heard in awhile though:

"Has Ovechkin even touched the puck yet?"

"Well there was that time in warm up..."

So everyone jumps on the Canucks when they made a comment about the officiating, but they have no issues that Julien did it and is getting all sorts of weak calls this game?

"They're doing all the dirty things they need to do to be successful" -PJ Stock on Boston

What!? Since when was playing dirty acceptable? :huh:
How come when any other team plays dirty, it's just plain dirty. When the Bruins do it - it's playing the game the right way.

<_<

Chara's gushin pretty good.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs


   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Cause the Bruins owners are main parts of the old boys club, they seem to get some pretty favorable calls and minor discipline for things other teams get ripped for.

Why did he not score there? In the playoffs you shouldn't just slide it in, should've slammed it in.

Marchand's own stick hit him in the face

I laughed cause he held his face like he got hit in the head when it was his shoulder. What a dive! He has spins like a figure skater.

I'm glad the Caps are exposing them for what they really are.. LOL. Caps fans probably also can empathize with us now too.

I rewound it to see what happened, Chimera skated through Marchand's stick, which bent into Marchand's face, that's how he was bleeding
