Ridiculous the B’s have to compete for the top seed after being so far ahead but here we are. B’s-Flyers today in Toronto.

No home ice advantage for anyone in this tournament except maybe Toronto a little since it’s their arena. Funny to hear announcing goals and playing music between plays with no fans in the arena. Lol

Arena looks like a cool Olympics style setup in a way. I see they’re also changing the ads on the boards to be for each region depending on the teams playing. I think they did an experiment with that a few years ago. That’s cool.

For the most part unwatchable. No fans no excitement. I can't even talk myself into watching the Bruins. The NHL deserves to have the Coyotes win the Stanley cup.

God bless Chris Wagner - he's the perfect 4th-line Forward in the mold of Sean Thornton, but if he's your most productive player then you're in a lot of trouble...as in a first-round elimination kind of trouble...

And whenever I now see or hear the word Chara, I automatically picture the word Glacier... goodness gracious that dude is slow...

I've mentioned this a few times outside here but the B's have to come out ready to fight, play like they're down 2-1, 3 period. They don't have a switch they can turn on & off. They're too old to do that and the young guys really aren't ready to step up into that role. Really great mix of youth & talent though. I know every other team could say this rn but the team is one player away from being scary again.
Anyway they have to come out 100mph ready to rumble from the first drop. Come out & throw everything you have to a certain extent the first 5-6 minutes. Maybe switch up the lines for a shift or two next period.
Idk I haven't seen any urgency, really playing on fire from this team. Big game tomorrow I'll be listening by a pool.

That's actually one of their fatal flaws: There isn't, and they're not.

Maybe they’ll show up against the Canes now that it counts. They better or it will be a lot quicker playoff exit than it should have been. What a letdown so far...

I think I'm OK that they're facing Carolina instead of the NYI.

Bruins game moved to tomorrow morning because of the Lightning Jackets game that went to 5 overtimes. 4th longest playoff game in league history.

Crazy to see a guy in net stop 85 shots (not a typo- he had 85 saves) and still lose. :eek:

The Bruins have lost their mojo for this year, IMO. And tonight their game got delayed. Ugh. This pandemic really screwed them.

Looking back you're right about the youth/talent part. I was wrong.

I think we're talented enough and have the goaltending but nah we don't have a young stable of horses.

Still though I believe we can't come out and F about. On fire from the first drop. Hope our guys are fired up.

They don't need any more excuses not to flip the switch. It's game time, maybe, stand by.

It was just a matter of time; Tampa was getting at least one good scoring opportunity per shift, whereas Columbus was happy to spend a bunch of time in their own zone before dumping out the puck and changing lines...sounds familiar...
