    All post season he has had those moments, bad thing is when he has one there is a 2nd not too far behind. Both he and Johansson have given me the shakes but in fairness they more than made up for it.
    Still they can't afford any brain farts because their fortune can run out. At the start of the Toronto series I labelled them both mooch soft players, I have since given that up with reservations.

    I would agree because no Donato = no Coyle besides Sweeney probably knew that he was getting Johansson so no place for Ryan. Sad but that is how it is. We all know this but refuse to admit it.

    Bruins need to keep Coyle at center or he'll disappear.

    I don’t think he disappears when they use him on the wing for an odd shift, I just think he’s better at C

    When we traded for coyle a poster said it would be a success if he could help solidify our third line

    I responded... no, thats what we got him for... thats expected... success would be if he responds to this new opportunity and raises his game to the point we start thinking of him as a core guy... a difference maker... a star of the game

    At the time a few posters told me i didnt know what im talking about, but i wonder if they see it now?

    Coyle was always considered a disapointment because he always had the potential to be better... now we are seeing some of that potential

    At start of playoffs the thread asked who is our darkhorse candidate

    I said not only is coyle our darkhorse but before these playoffs are done people will be posting they want him signed to an extension

    I didnt really see minny trading this guy so i wasnt screaming for sweeney to go get him. I certainly thought it would cost more than donato

    I wish donato no ill will, but i knew we were overloaded with soft left shot wingers and needed some size for right shot wings

    I dont see coyle playing alot if center in future but glad hes doing well there now for us

    Glad hes working out... not surprised, but glad. I still think he has more to give.

    I do hope he gets extended

    Love hometown boy makes good stories

    "Without question, the highlight of my career up to this point was playing with them in the Super Eight.

    If you’re asking, “What’s the Super Eight?” well then, you’re not from Mass. And that’s fine, I guess — because nobody’s perfect."

    hahahha love it!

    He’s became one of my favorites with his physical puck possession style alone. How can you not route for the hometown guy that gets traded to his childhood team at the deadline and is now a big part of why they’re in the final? I love the story and what he wrote in the article. It’s a dream come true for Coyle.

    Yes we have the snipers Pasta, Marchy, Bergy, Krech and Jake. But every great Army needs the Tanks and Infantry to grind it out against the enemy. Coyle, Backes, Acciari, are the heavy armor. The infantry led by Korporal Kuraly, Nords,Mo Jo. And of course the intelligence Officer Danton Heinen. His smarts will save us on more than one mission. The enemy is here on our shore. Gentleman, Make this your finest hour!

    The third line was dominant tonight as was the 4th. I expect that will be a big part of why the Bruins win the Cup.

    still confused why it took the ref 4 years to call that interference on blais. all he needed was some rope
    to make the full-on hogtie official. maybe berube will put on his skates in game 2 for an encore.

    It was odd. It was interference from the get go. Blais skated right into Coyle blocking him as he entered the zone and Johansson had the puck on the other side. It should have been called right off as it was textbook interference

    You could almost feel what the ref was thinking during that play....

    Must have been something like....

    “Come on kid, let him go....don’t make me call another one on them...please let him go....seriously? You’re still interfering with him..why are you making Me call this?”

    It was a really stupid play by Blais. You can’t just take a guy out of a play like that. I thought the Blues overall played a really undisciplined game and it was a part of why they lost. The bigger part of why they lost is the Bruins just outhit, outskated, and outplayed them

    If you read their board...our defense sucks and it was because of the refs.

    One guy even said something like...(paraphrasing here)...

    Their defense isn’t good....if we can get more scoring chances and zone time we’ll be ok.

    Lol...sounds like the B’s defense was doing a good job preventing zone time and scoring chances.

    Yeah from what I’ve read on the main board it’s because all the calls didn’t go their way. I guess being outshot 30-12 in the 2nd and 3rd periods and generally playing absolute bonehead hockey was all because of the bad calls against them

    Imagine if they made all the calls that St. Louis deserved?

    There was the clear cut hook that they missed and Edmands should have gotten another penalty when he roughed up Backes when he was defenseless on the ice after the high stick.

    Absolutely. Dirty crap. But what should we expect with Berube and Ott on their coaching staff?

    Plus Krug getting mugged in front of the net and three swipes to pull his helmet off, Marchand getting hooked and Backes getting what one Blues poster on the main board called “ a well deserved elbow” by Binnington

    It's sad that this is 100% the feeling on the play. As I said in the GDT last night, he could have called the interference about 30 minutes before he actually decided to. Not sure which ref it was, but he really gave off that "I don't want to call another penalty" feeling while that play was unfolding.

    Most of all, not calling Perron for purposely taking Krug's helmet off is biggest missed call.

    A guy could get seriously hurt as a result... or skate all the way down the ice and completely truck a guy.
