PLAY BY PLAY
I feel like Gryz was trying to play like he was Erik Karlsson out there tonight, he was acting like the star player on the PP's.. he doesn't usually do that so it really stuck out as odd.
well that sucked!
Game was way closer than the score. Hope you guys blow the Oilers and Canucks out.
They 100% need to make a move. It’s time to **** or get off the pot right now.
Get a trade done early, build some chemistry. Dangle one of Heinen, Bjork or Donato and a pick or two. Go get some scoring.
It might seem knee jerk, but it needs to be done. Look at the post season last year, look at the start of this season.
We need a real 3rd line center not someone living of the fumes of years gone bye. Offensive black hole that cannot skate the speed limit.
Exactly. Not a guy who once scored 35 back in 2004.
Bang on. He actually made some risky moves in his own as well which he fortunately got away with. But for some reason he tried to be the show on the PP instead of just qbing it and getting the puck too Marchand and Pasta.
Defense, blah. Effort, blah. Rask has had better nights.
Dat first line tho
They'll figure it out. There were some good moments.
No need to panic but Backes has gotta be better The kids just need time.
The defence looks pretty good overall.
Some points taken away because of a challenge too
Offense issues aren’t just on Backes. Krejci still can’t get his line going. He’s supposed to be the driving force and playmaker of that 2nd line but he needs certain players apparently.
I shall lovingly name that one Hot Garbage.
And never think of it again.
I do hope Sweeney is thinking of the present a little bit though here. And presently his centre group outside of Bergeron is ho-riffic.
If you could mate Heinen, Bjork and Donato, their love child would probably be a complete player. If you can’t do that it might be time to address that issue as well
I still think that the Bs should call up Cehlarik and see what he can add. I don't see what it can hurt given that secondary scoring has been so anemic most every game so far. Not happy Heinen sat another game either. Too many non-offensive threats in the lineup.
Bergy is busting his [email protected]$ out there he deserves help. He will skate way to many miles before January and be burnt out come playoffs. Heinen deserves to be back in. Heck bring up Senyshyn for a look see. The team is going be easy to play against, just out score Bergys line. Forth line should probably be Backes, Nordstrom and Kuraly.
We definitely need to make a change. It's hard to win when it's one line doing 100% of the scoring.
I think Johnny Drama would say we had a number of "offensive" threats. All against him.
Either try Heinen at center or call up JFK, Backes can’t keep up with his wingers.
A lot of talk about Backlesky but Krejci just doesn't do enough to create chances for his wingers and he's certainly isn't a finisher. Debrusk is the 2nd line. As his speed and forechecking helps create space for Krejci.
I really feel he gets a pass for what he's done in the past. This isn't 2011 or 2013 anymore. The Bruins need an up grade at 2nd line Center and then their Cup contenders.
They definitely will need more scoring to match up with the Leafs that’s for sure.
Have to say though the Flames played a good home game, Gio is such a good deeman. Smith is like another dee back there, they passed well all game. Bruins had chances but were kept to the outside. Rask redeemed himself, Grizz was not that bad, Flames took away options very well tonight, Mac has to be better offensively. It started of bad and was just one of those games that was never going be saved. Krech needs to be a lot better, he did not skate much today.
Agreed. Backes is getting a lot of hate that should also be directed towards Krejci. He’s just as much an issue. He’s playing as the 2C but seems more like a 3C at this point. I agree with the 2nd line needing an upgrade a center.
At what point do you take off Pastrnak and place him with Krejci to balance the scoring?
Bruins 1st line and 4th line were pretty good.Bjork killed their pp tonite.Rask was great after he was bad lol
Just 16 hits.
Krejci can carry one prospect but 2?
