Wideman, Ference, Axelsson out against Ottawa; Manny in net

Dennis Wideman, Andrew Ference, and P.J. Axelsson are all out against Ottawa tomorrow. Wideman took a shot to the midsection against the Rangers but finished the game. Axelsson's injury is unknown. The injuries to Wideman and Axelsson are probably not too serious and may be a way to get them some rest before the playoffs. Andrew Ference on the other hand, suffered an injury on Saturday and did not return. His injury is believed to be more serious and Julien said Ference may be "week-to-week".

"Probably the worst of the bunch will be Andrew Ference. He's getting evaluated further today, so we can know the severity of the injury. A lot of the guys that aren't playing it's really just maintenance. There's nothing serious there." Julien said after practice today.

Aaron Ward, Phil Kessel, and Shawn Thornton all skated in practice and will make the trip to Ottawa. Manny Fernandez will start in goal tomorrow.

Expected lineup:

Wheeler-Savard-Kessel
Lucic-Krejci-Ryder
Recchi-Bergeron-Kobasew
Thornton-Yelle-Bitz

Chara-Ward
Hunwick-Montador
Stuart-Hnidy

Fernandez

sounds fine to me for a lineup. Too bad Ference has gone down again but at least we have montador/hnidy/hunwick to insert in there, Still a solid D-Corps.

rest kessel and thorton. dont rush it. bring up sobotka and st pierre. wer coming up on the play offs and i know these guys need to stay sharp but its not worth risking furthur injury when the rest of the season is pretty much meaningless. now when i say meaningless i mean it wont change anything in the standings. i know its best to go into the playoffs while your hot and no game will be played soft.

and i also love watching provi guys get called up. its fun to see how our prospects match up with the big boys.

goodluck manny.

well the forward lineup looks great, it will be nice to see that bitz-yelle-thornton line back together. Really hope ference will be ready for the playoffs, obviously no need to rush him back right now.

kessel needs to find timing before the playoffs start. feeling better about montador...good article in the globe about how he's a utility player. not great in any one area, but good in all of them. i see why that trade happened now more clearly.

not happy at all about ference, but i think hnidy can fill that void...especially in the playoffs against the rangers. every time we play the rangers hnidy gets into someone's face avery style.

brutal game by the bruins, i know the games don't matter much, but that was so painful to watch. no edge at all. as long as they get healthy, and don't play like they did tonight, ever again, they should be fine.

for a 6'5 guy, bitz makes it look way to easy to look invisible out there. he needs to play with an edge, i did not even know he was playing until the face off after chara's goal.

rumors around ristucci center were that axelsson stormed off the line half way through the practice when julien informed him he was going to be playing on the fourth line.

After watching all the give away's last night and the constant pressure from Ottawa - I don't care what you PJ haters say, this team is much better with him than without. He would have had Alfie locked up all night. The ottawa players where flying past the bruins all night - that game could have easily been 7-1

i've been a pj basher, but we need him playing on the fourth line in the playoffs. he does to many valuable things, and if i have to watch bitz play like he's fucken 5 feet tall one more game i'm going to puke.

agreed psands. 4th line and pj duty and im happy with that. no first line.

anon, it said pj stormed off the line in practice but he was practicing on the first line so your theory is totally wrong.

the way things are shaping up it looks like we will be playing the fricken habs first round. If Bitz - Ryder - Kessel - Krejci - Wheeler don't start playing with some heart and passion this could be another long line of disapointment season. If that should happen who are they going to blame this one on - Thornton is not around - I guess Savard and Chara will have to be the sacrificial lambs even though they have played tough all year. These forementioned boys better spend a few days with Kobasew and Bergeron and Neely in order to get a fire lit under thier arses.

i dont know about all this "pj storming off" crap that i'm hearing, and if its not true then don't say it. You can attack PJ's game and say he sucks all you want but don't attack the guys character, he's a class act.

obviously it's a lie...otherwise they would have signed their name to it.

Geez, one loss with four impact players out is no reason to get worried. It's ridiculous with the cirucumstances they faced to get upset with what happened last night.

Manny let in a couple shady goals, at a time in which the Bruins and the fans are used to watching Tim Thomas who is as good right now as he has been the lest 2 seasons. Ferrence, and Wideman, along with having Thomas and PJ is a GIGANTIC chunk of what has kept the puck out of the net this season.

Last night was proof to any PJ hater that we do in fact need his checking line duties, and he will make critical plays in the playoffs.

Granted the Bruins need to finish more, and really didnt threaten with too many scoring great chances. That last goalie interference call on Looch was ridiculous and Auld once again, just like he has in the past before he was a Bruin, played pretty good against the Bruins.

The Bruins are fine, as Mad Mike said, they need to stay healthy, have a good home performance tomorrow, and hopefully PJ and Dennis will be back tomorrow with Timmy in net.

Go Bruins.

C'mon people... the damn Senators have won how many in a row at home? 9! They're the HOTTEST home team in the league right now, and the Bruins playing 4 down, with Manny in Net and the obvious let down after clinching the east were bound to have some competition.

Lets not look too much into this one geez.

i was going to say you guys need to relax. dont be dropping names after a tough loss is a meaningless game with 3 guys out.

I was just wondering if it is correct that the bruins signed Yannick Reindeau?? Looks like he could be a steal.

willisss, you really want to talk about dropping names? the guy who only started saying positive things about the bruins once everyone made you look like an idiot for bashing thomas. your comment was useless, only 4 people said the same thing before you. keep trying, im sure you will say something useful one of these days.

Carolina is definitely the hottest team in the league right now. 9-0 last night? wow.

There is absolutely nothing to worry about. The real season starts next week, and we'll have something substantial to talk about.

The Oilers are done, and that makes me excited all day long.

GO B's

psands...i gotta say, everything you post about me sounds more and more retarded. get. the. fuck. over. your. self.
i never said anything that was not positive about the bruins as a whole you moron.

HEY EVERYONE! I DONT LIKE THOMAS! holy shit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

im also not bashing the shit out of the entire team after a loss. i'm sorry my comment bothered you so much that your hard on you have for thomas went down a few inches.and im sorry your not over it yet.

anyways yes we signed Yannick Reindeau.

willisss, i think its funny you say everything i have posted about you is retarded, all i can remember posting was a response defending thomas, and i called you out when you said hnidy and yelle will be gone next year because we cant afford the cap hit, even though both of them are making less than one million, so it would be smart to bring them back cheaply.

it's funny you say get over yourself to other people, you seem stuck on that phrase, maybe you should get over yourself.

it is funny how your post's have changed ever since everyone made you look stupid for saying thomas was not a good goalie, and saying manny was better. your opinion is your opinion and i'm fine with that, but your the one who acted like a jackass during that whole thing. then once people made you look stupid, you changed your opinion to manny was better than thomas before he got injured.

your just an annoying fake person to listen too. and your posts are all useless.

once again...even more retarded.

my posts cant be tooo useless concidering how much the effect you. if they were useless then why dont you just ignore them? because im right and your just an idiot.

Anonymous psands said...

alright willisss, your clearly the man, what was "retarded" about my posts? give me an example, because i gave plenty about how your's are useless. all you do when somebody calls you out is say get over yourself or your retarded. you obviously cant put together a respectful response, instead you go the way of a seven year old and use words like "retarded" or "idiot."

there is no point in arguing if all your going to do is call me a retard. you have once again made something useless. it's not the first time you have done that though.

Alright, I hate to sound like a babysitter, but can we all agree to focus on the damn bruins and not on stupid blog comment fights? It was entertaining for about 2 days but I hate having to sift through these back and forth arguments to find something worth reading.
