    Yet the puck was even further away on that hit against Wagner and no call? Only thing missing was the star player and the dramatic fall.

    Yea but only if said goalie is actually good at stopping the puck as well. Rather have a Tuukka then a Mike Smith.

    He was going to the front to look for a loose puck and got cleared out. That hit would be passed on being penalized if it was one of the big boys.

    This isn’t anything new in the NHL. “Some” little guys are over-protected.

    The 3rd line is a mess

    Our 2nd and 3rd line Cs are below average skaters..... the new NHL is speed... against certain teams and against certain match ups it doesn't look good. I think the rumors about looking for a C are true the more I watch them.

    Did not realize that Calgary #13 dives as much as he does. Great player, he should really stop the embellishment. Its silly.

    I acutally think Rask has gotten a lot better at puck handling.

    It’s just that being “safe” with the puck as the goalie is one of the few things Cassidy and Julien seem to have in common as far as coaching. The amount of unnecessary offensive zone face offs Bruins goalies take to play it safe is ridiculous.

    They don’t.

    He grabbed his head so he got the call. That’s what actually happened.

    Easy to blame Rask as he has sucked this year but this was the worst game I’ve seen from Gryz and McAvoy.

    In fact, if a Bruin is under 25 it seems like he is hungover. Guess they took DeBrusk out last night...

    Rask handles it like a grenade. Thomas wasn't much better. It's been a while.

    Watching lines 2-4 is like watching the advertisements before the real show comes on. You could really just set a to only watch the Bergeron line and you certainly wouldn't miss anything.

    Charlie has to make that hit 10 out of 10 times. He sure as hell cannot just let the guy go get the puck back and get another scoring chance. It's a fast sport and he had to make a quick decision given where the puck was and who was in the vicinity.

    It’s not good when only lines 1 and 4 are playing well

    Smith looks good in net for Calgary BUT his defense is positionally, WAY more sound than Bostons.

    Wouldn't that be lovely... but no I really think they need to get a young top 6 C. Slot Krejci down on the 3rd line. Backes to 4th or press box.

    Ryan Donato doesn’t look like an NHL player.

    So useless if he’s not potting goals.

    Rask responded after his horrible 3rd goal. He’s incredibly talented...but his demons always show up. I’ll never be able to trust him.
