    tim thomas…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….starting to lose my patience

  3. Froggy says:

    Piss-poor effort so far. Not nearly assertive enough and no skating. The B’s need to dictate the play and not play passively.
    Enough of this crap. Score some goals for crissakes. I’m sick & tired of seeing the B’s not setting the tempo and playing into the hands of their opposition.
    We have enough trouble scoring this year and we certainly do not need Thomas letting in soft goals. Remember the last game against the Panthers – we have not scored on the Panthers in 85 mins of play so far this year.
    Time to ratchet up the intensity in the 2nd period.

  4. Froggy says:

    No urgency by the B’s on the pp. WTF is wrong with Chara!!

  5. Birdman2403 says:

    WTF is with Centre Ice ?? Why isn’t this game on t.v. ?

  6. Froggy says:

    Game can be seen on nhl gamecentre live. The announcers however are the Florida announcers which makes it difficult to stomach at times.
    Anyways, you’re not mising much – the B’s are being outworked, out-hustled and definitely being out-muscled.

  7. guest says:

    Ference better have gotten Boychuk something nice for xmas, i think he saved his job

  8. Froggy says:

    I’m amazed – they actually scored. Ryder on a deflection. Woooooooo!!

  9. Froggy says:

    Way to go Marco!!! Wooooooo!! 2-1 B’s early in the 3rd. Time to play smart and NOT go into a prevent defense. Take control.

  10. Froggy says:

    Fantastic short-handed save by Timmy!!! 2-1 win for the B’s!!!

  11. backbruin says:

    can we please get somebody to play with Savard!!!my god you have a playmaker like Savy and you put Begin nad stone hands Sturm!!!really P.C that’s the best we can do!!brutal!

  12. Bruins says:

    decent win. typical b’s outing. thomas is looking good (minus that goal).

    carter is expected to be traded right after christmas. i think he makes 5 mil a year. obviously perfect for savard. dont know how much id give up though

    • Richardo says:

      Cant imagine Carter traded to the Bs right before the WC… Plus they need goaltending and we’re not giving it up…

  13. psands says:

    carter would be perfect, but dont know how much we would have to give up and the flyers are starting to turn it around, i would be surprised now if they traded him.

  14. da wreck says:

    Jeff Carter is also a natural center, so who knows how he’d adapt to playing on a wing. He’d look great in a B’s jersey, but I’m with psands – it’d be a surprise if they traded him.

  15. mook says:

    i’ll say it again…horton is an expensive wheeler. noone saw this last night?

  16. jimmy50 says:

    Saw Boychuck play last season in Tampa and could tell he wasn’t ready. Watching his play of late has been impressive. I see the B’s trading Ference to clear up space to sign a scorer and making Johnny the 6th d-man

  17. mook says:

    ference has been playing well! trade him for what?

    all i could see is MAYBE dumping ference for schneider…not sure that’s an upgrade.

  18. Pearson says:

    Not that its of any importance but has anyone else noticed timmy switched Just his blocker back to last years style, the yellow?

  19. jmed says:

    Jimmy50

    Boychuk played for Providence last season, you thinking of someone else?

  20. Birdman2403 says:

    I’m sick of watching Thomas let in shit goals ! Imagine how good this guy would be if he stopped the brutal goals ! First Florida goal….awful ! The first one in T.B…..awful! Can’t control the puck then over plays Lecavalier by 10 feet ! Julien must really not like Rask ???

    • mattg says:

      I’d say he’s trying to get timmy’s confidence back, i’d imagine if he doesn’t pick it up soon, we’ll be seeing a lot more of Rask for the playoff race.

  21. Birdman2403 says:

    And I like Thomas….don’t get me wrong. But man, always seems to be a BAD goal every game !?!

  22. Froggy says:

    If Thomas plays like he did last night – we will be fine. Provided of course we score. A bad goal is disheartening, but the bigger concern & issue with the B’s is finishing.

  23. psands says:

    atta boy bitz, about time there was a fight, whats with the tampa player getting all upset about the short fight, when he was the one wrestling, and trying to go for the take down?

    another weak goal by timmy, but we will nounce back.

    really mook, schneider???you dont like horton, but you would dump ference for that guy? ference has been solid lately and the only guy i want to see take his place is boychuk full time.

  24. Birdman2403 says:

    Brutal call…Boarding on Sobotka ??? Really though, do the B’s have sunstroke ? No jump at all….

  25. Froggy says:

    Game, set & match. The B’s needed to survive that period, but the so-called best officials in the world put an abrupt end to that. It’s extremely frustrating to play the bolts and the officials at the same time, especially when we are a goal-starved team.

  26. G cole says:

    Wow the bruins are fucking terrible, and I’d like to hear someone tell me they aren’t, they’re getting completely owned by te god dan tamba bay lightning. This games so boring I changed it to the Vikings game to see brett favre kick some ass, and he fucking fumbles it! What the hell every team I like right now sucks

  27. WARDOFTHERINGS says:

    Brett Favre has always been bad him and cutler are way overrated.

  28. willisss says:

    not trying to make exuses but damn…

    fuck. these. refs.

  29. mattg says:

    big win for the refs, they keep this going and they got a real shot at the playoffs

  30. Birdman2403 says:

    Fumbling, bumbling fucking Dennis Wideman ! This guy is absolutely awful, yet he is out there in all important times…I don’t get it !

    P.C. you have to make a deal to get a forward that can score. I don’t care about the cap talk….make it work. Ryder, Ference, Wideman, picks….they can all go. Scoring 1 goal a fucking game isn’t going to take you deep in the play-offs !

  31. psands says:

    morris goes before wideman, wideman has looked sloppy with the puck, but i am not sold at all on morris, i think he is only doing this well because of who he is playing with.

    wideman will figure it out, he has been tough to watch, but he will come around.

    we need another scorer though, teams to target would be the oilers, blues, leafs(fuck them), hurricanes and the ducks.

    anybody realistic interest you on any of these teams? David Backes???

  32. ELWOPPO says:

    Guys, No excuses the better team won! Tampa totally outplayed us! Especially in the shot dept. We played a flat game, Maybe its because we played last night? On the bright side Timmy played another solid game and the Habs finally lost! Regroup and come out strong against the Thrashers! Hopefully Looch will b back that game and Get this God for saken Begin off the first line!

  33. Birdman2403 says:

    Boyes might look nice coming back !?

  34. WARDOFTHERINGS says:

    i pray every night that wideman gets traded hopefully it comes true!

  35. G cole says:

    What ever happened to the bruins wanting to be hard to play against, this is bullshit! They’re really easy to play against lately, barely fight, few small hits here and there, terrible offense, no excitement or energy at all. (except that boychuk hit) they have been really boring to watch. Never though I’d change the channel in the second period because the bruins were boring the crap out of me!

  36. patrick says:

    i wish the only man who plays night in and night out could get a goal scoring lobotamy. daniel paille. this guy has SO many chances cause he works SO hard. he just cant finish. reminds me of axelson in some ways but better. guess since paille could hit a empty net eh? we need either someone who can carry a game themselves scoring wise or a powerplay sniper. we get a ton of great open chances but our scorers just suck too bad to bury them. if you could count all the breakaways and odd man rushes this season, per game situation, im sure our record would be hugely different. these one goal losses are gayer than cindy crosby licking the flowers asshole after lemiux greases it up. just my 77 cents.
