Bruins - Flyers Post Game

- Overall a game the Bruins' should have had easily against the worst team in the league, but they made it interesting. A few sloppy goals, but a win is a win.
- Patrice Bergeron missed another game due to his lower body injury. He practiced again today and is hoping to return for tomorrow's game.
- Leading goal scorer, Glen Murray, left with a lower body injury and only played 10:32 all game.
- Bobby Allen another solid game paired with Zdeno Chara. These two work well together, much better than Paul Mara and Chara.
- Mara lost in his fight with Mike Richards.
- Petr Tenkrat has been impressive lately. Recently this guy gets some playing time and is contributing. Had a few clutch shootout goals and added two more even strength goals tonight.
- Marc Savard added a goal and 2 assists. He now has 76 points on the year. Good for 4th place overall, not including tonight's other games.
- Marco Sturm continues to score goals. He is going to get Chiarelli something big in return. If it be a first round draft pick or a top prospect, something better come in return.
- P.J. Axelstone got out of his scoring drought. It has been 15 games since he has scored a goal, despite playing on a line with the third leading assist scorer in the league. In the past 15 games he has 2 goals and 4 assists. Either move him off the top line or trade him.
- Brandon Bochenski scored his 5 goals in 7 games since becoming a Bruin.
- Strong game from Phil Kessel, who picked up two assists, the last assist came on a very nice drive to the net which Tenkrat later tipped in.

I don't think Mara lost that fight at all. I think if anything it was a draw. Great fight!

I can't see them getting any more than a 3rd round pick for Sturm, maybe a 2nd if we're lucky.

tenkrat has averaged 11 minutes a game. last night he got 12 minutes and that extra minute? probably came at the expense of glen murray and after his two goals. perhaps you should bother to look up the facts before you post...

Axe had a great game, was +3, scored a goal, made the Bochenski goal happend AND YOU WANT TO TRADE HIM? Do hate swedes or something? It seems you care more about your pepe favorites than winning.

Sorry NEB, but he has been getting more ice time lately. Since the Primeau trade he has been playing more and contributing in many different ways. A look at his ice time the past 12 games, 8,8,10,10,6,6,7,4,14,14,12,12. Sorry neb look up ur facts next time. I said recently he has been getting more ice time and yes that he has. The past 5 games he has been receiving more ice time and been contributing. In the 7 games prior, his ice time was an average of 8 minutes a game.

Treebob, it was a pretty even fight, although in my opinion, I think Mara lost since he didn't land as many punches. Probably could have gone either way, but if I was the judge Richards gets the W in that one.

As for Axelsson, I don't think he adds much to this team especially in the role he is playing. He should not be on the first line or the powerplay. Even with Marc Savard on his line the guy has 9 goals all season. Put him on the 3rd line then maybe I will view him differently. But then with a role player on the third line making 1.85 million a season, that may be alittle steep especially with the Bruins right up against the cap. Bring in the youth and cut ties with the players who are aging and injury prone.

I was just reading this and I'm amazed: A seasoned vet who is dependable, makes few mistakes, has saved numerous goals on the PK (and 5-5), and takes few stupid penalties, is worth a heck of a lot more than some snot nosed kid who isn't ready.
