B's Dominate In Home Opener

Having to wait two weeks into the season before playing a home game clearly didn't effect the B's last night. The only word that can describe their 4-1 victory over the Lightning is dominating.

The Bruins out worked, out hustled and out skated Tampa Bay in all three periods en route to the win. Forwards were working together extremely well, especially on the sweet pass by Bergeron to Sturm for, what I believe, was the 4th goal of the game.

Milan Lucic, once again, set the tone for the game, and possibly the season, by getting into a fight within the opening minutes of the first drop of the puck. This guy has the Cam Neely style of play written all over him. He's quickly becoming a fan favorite and looks to only be getting better every game. My God, whatever direction this team goes in, this guy has to be a part of the ride.

Quick thought, I know Lou Lamoiello has a penchant for a short leash with his coaching staff but, as of right now he made a mistake getting rid of Claude Julien. He comes off as a hard ass, no nonsense guy, which maybe rubbed the Devils GM the wrong way. But, this is exactly what the Bruins needed and lacked from last year's squad. Julien has brought an early sense of direction and blatant syle of play that will get results if this continues.

Lastly, it's no secret that Tim Thomas is on one of his vintage "#1 goaltender in the league hot streaks." This guy is stopping everything right now. However, don't expect this to last. To coin the famous Bill Belichick phrase, "he is what he is." Thomas is a great backup goaltender and a quality starter. This team still needs Manny Fernandez to contribute.

All in all, I couldn't be any happier with the start of this season. This is definitely a different team from last year even though many of those guys are still here. Tomorrow should be a very good test to see if they can keep up with the Rangers.

JHA did you watch the game? "The Bruins out worked, out hustled and out skated Tampa Bay in all three periods en route to the win. "

The Bruins were dominated in the 2nd period and played so so in the 1st and 3rd period. Julian says he hopes this game is forgotten. you moron

That's right because the Sox have been a winning team. They have a committed ownership unlike the looser Bruins.

Interpret it the way you want "anonymous." But, if you feel like making any sort of opinion at least make it known who you are rather than hiding.

I have no problem with criticism, call me a moron like you did. That's just my impressions from the game.

i happen to think the bruins played great in the first, were on their heels in teh second, and played a pretty good third. two players that have impressed me have been kobesew and kreji(not sure of the spelling). I thought Lucic had a tough second period but was good the rest of the way.

No reason to call a fellow Bruins fan a moron for feeling optomistic after the opener.

You can call the idiot who wrote the third statement a moron. Are the Bruins "looser"...as in the antithesis of tighter...? Or did you mean "loser" like yourself?

Where were you on that one spel nurd.

Habs suck,

Leafs suck,

Bruins rule.

Hey "anonymous"....how does someone who gives an opinion that you don't agree with become a moron?....at least JHA knows the game, and has the nads to sign his name (so do I)....so grow a pair, and quit hiding behind your keyboard....

Great start for the B's, and hopefully they can take their agressive game up north of the border tonight.....Manny or Timmy in net??....we will see
