Sharks defeat Bruins


The Bruins came out and played with passion and emotion. For the first period anyways. They outplayed the Sharks in all aspects of the game for the first period and a half. Then it all fell apart. They sat back and tried to protect the lead, something we have seen happen a lot over the past ten games. They no longer go in for the kill by bringing the same pressure they started with. Once they get up they sit back and play conservative, a type of style that will always end up proving to be costly.

- How awful is the powerplay? Julien needs to change it up and adjust to how the NHL adjusted to them. They can't even set up when they have a 5 on 3. They need to change it up and get Bergeron off the point.
- Bergeron, Axelsson, and Kobasew were flat out awful. They combined for a -7. Axelsson had numerous chances with the puck lying in the crease but did not drive to the net for the rebounds.
- Faceoffs killed the Bruins tonight. By winning faceoffs it gives your team possession. The Bruins won 15 and lost 33. Brutal.
- Clearly, more size up front is something the Bruins need to address before the deadline. They were outhit 39 to 25.
- What has happened to the Krejci line? Invisible again.
- Joe Thornton wasn't all too impressive tonight. He did score a fluke goal but hardly stood out when on the ice.

This was their only regulation loss in their last 10 games!! (The best in the NHL over that time period) and this site along with those who comment still shit on all the little things!! They are still the best team in the NHL - why not cheer them on and stop shitting on them. This is a historic season for them and this site fails to see that and refuses to acknowledge it or even enjoy it.

Bring back latrappe to write and mook to comment - people who really seemed to like this team.

Was I hearing things or did Bettman say last night that Washington was an original six team.
Bad third period last night - It does show what needs to be done before playoffs - A shake up is needed - Kessel has not been the same - he looks alot like he played last year - Bergeron gets a pass but he does need more help on his line, get him a big winger who can score. It shows how a great season can come to a crashing halt in the playoffs if you come across a solid team. I dread the thought if it happens.

krejci line was missing an important piece...ryder! i'll play centre with ryder and get 30 points.

how shit is it that we may be without noke and kobasew again? at least lucic has recovered from his slump, now we need kessel to fire it up again. he's due for a scoring streak.

agrees, let's get bergeron off the pp. axelsson played the softest game ever. there was a play in the second where the puck was loose in the sj slot and he just peeled-away...crash in there you pansy! keep pj on the pk and that's it. now that i think about it, pj would fit pretty good on edmonton...bring-in erik cole!

more size up front for sure. antropov is big, but he plays like a pussy. signing him would be worse than the zhamnov debacle. how about the isles? can't we poach some players from them? weight. colorado? smith. both those teams need goaltending...

im glad you guys are finally agreeing with me about the pp being very lackluster lately. devils on friday. not gonna get any easier. i do have to say that the first two periods were some of the best back and forth exciting play by the bruins all season.

bruinsrule even though they won recently they have looked awful doing so. the past 8 games they have looked like the bruins of old..... the dave lewis bruins. no passion, no emotion, sitting back trying to protect leads. what do you want them to say here, oh great bruins effort and they came up just short. well thats a lie and i dont want to read lies.

The globe suggests Pronger to be the perfect fit. I know this is just blowing smoke but if this could happen he wouldn't come cheap. Yes I would love too have him but what do you think the price tag would be ? How about Ference, Stuart, Kobasew a prospect and a 1st round pick is this enough and if it is this would still give us cap space to make 1 or 2 more small moves. This would make a serious run for the cup. Any other opinions on this ?

The Bruins are having an incredible season. I want nothing more than to see this success translate into a successful playoff, but with games like they have been playing of late, against some top teams, have left me feeling doubtful that they are going to be fully cohesive through to the coveted prize from Lord Stanley. Is it due to injuries and the players taking a long time to get back into the swing of things after having long layoffs. Is our depth not as solid as everyone has been claiming all season? I don't truly no the answers to these questions, but to have some level of perspective, the Bruins are having their best season ever, and still doing 10 fold what anybody had expected of them, except for a lot of us dedicated bruins fans, and while they may not win the cup this season, do we try and buy ourselves a cup by selling the future of the franchise, or do we continue on this path of 're-building' and continue to let these players grow and mesh with one another? I don't have the answers to these questions, I am nothing more than an armchair athlete who can't skate, so I am by no means an expert, but doesn't a loss like this just help to improve the drive and desire of a young team that do have good chemistry with one another? I was thinking to myself after during the first intermission last night, that if the Bruins win this game tonight, and meet the Sharks in the post season, as unlikely as that might be, wouldn't it give them more of a taste for vengeance? Anyway, I have gone on long enough, I'm proud of what the bruins are doing this season, and I agree something needs to change, but I think we need to continue to be patient with a relatively young team, although not as patient as Sens fans.

Bergeron needs to be replaced with Wideman on the PP, thank you very much.

no you guys cannot say that. everything is wonderful in bruins land. we all hate this team because we are unhappy with the way theyve been playing lately. God forbid us to question anymove they make.

breaking down a game is breaking down a game. thats what they did here. for the idiot who is crying because they broke down the game correctly go wwhine somewhere else. its simple the bruins have played brutal the last 6-7games. critizism comes when it is deserved. dipshit.

I would still try to get

Ian lapperriere 4 line
Keith Tkachuk 2 line
Brandon witt 6 d-man

i agree anonymous. imagine:

tkachuk-savard-kessel
lucic-bergeron-kobasew
wheeler-krejci-ryder
thornton-yelle-lapperriere

now thats depth. kick stone hands to the curb. he brings no energy, passion, or grit--something you need in a playoff series. tkachuk for a 2nd. lapperriere/neil/may for a 4th. thats where the major holes are. defense they may be okay.

anyone who thinks the bruins have "looked awful" lately is a fucktard.

i watched two games on tuesday...the bruins and the leafs game. you really notice a difference the way the two games played-out. the leafs look awful. the panthers look awful. the bruins look great. we didn't get all the bounces, but they were not awful. lazy? a bit.

go shit all over another blog. for once, i'm excited to be a bruins fan.

I completely agree with Laperriere and Tkachuk. I wasn't too pumped about the Tkachuk rumours at first, but the more I think about it, the more I like it...

That'd be a pretty solid 4 lines for a playoff run.

Oh, Mook: Excited to be a Bruins fan for once? Just jumped on the Bandwagon or what? I have never denied or haven't been proud to be a Bruins fan. The season before the lockout looked good like this season, as well... The playoffs were gay that year, but whatever...

Go Bruins.

I feel I need to comment on Bergeron alot of you guys are on this guys case. I ask why ? cause this poor kid is on a shit line is that his fault how about the PP does he have a hard shot NO we all know that. So point the finger where it belongs not at a kid that has done alot for us in the past. Tell me this who carried this team when Joe got traded ? How do we reward him we sign Savard and bump him back to the second line. ( Im not saying I hate Savy ) Ya he gets injured and he has to sit out a whole year, thats going to set anyone back. Now hes back and hes stuck centering this miracle line. Really what do expect from this kid if you ask me he should be wearing the C this kid bleeds black and gold. Too all Bergeron bashers what should we do pull a Mike O connel trade him for nothing. Fuck off and give your head a shake !!!!!!

It was clear as ever last game against the Sharks...the Bruins need to get bigger..plain and simple. They were knocked around by a bigger team and it wore them down and has been wearing them down the last 7-10 games..6 out of the last 10 games go to OT or SO, a couple of those Bruins lost leads late. No need to panic but still need to get bigger to ensure deep playoff run.

i didn't see any of you on this blog last year...so don't call me a bandwagon bruins fan.

plus, it's hard to jump on another city's bandwagon...that is usually reserved for home teams (jays, raptors, etc)

There is no need to panic. I mean really - the B's are 1st overall, lead the Habs by 21 and the Caps & Devils by 11.

Sure they have not played well since December. But you to have to remember - both November & December were absolutely off the charts for any team. 23-2-1!! No team can keep up that pace.

The B's are just complacent right now. It's difficult not to be that way if you get outplayed but still end up winning. The B's just need to put together a full 60 minute effort. That aspect of their game has been missing big time. Take the puck to the net and get ugly. Too many times they appear to pass up scoring chances for a pretty play.
