May 21, 2010

According to James Murphy of NESN and NESN.com, the Bruins are close to a deal with Dennis Seidenberg pending a physical. Murphy predicts the deal could be announced in 2-3 weeks, probably after the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Finals.  Here is Murph’s tweet

Was just told that Bruins and Dennis Seidenberg very close to new contract pending results from physical. Could be done in 2-3 weeks if good.

Thanks for a great season

May 17, 2010

Hey all,

I just wanted to thank everyone for following us this past season.  It was a great transition year moving from blogger to wordpress.  I know there were times when we did not post much, or things were not updated, but you stayed with us.  I’m going to try and figure some things out with the site this year, try some new things to improve.  Let me know if you have any ideas.  Things will be much more exciting with the draft and July 1st looming.


It wasn’t meant to be

May 14, 2010

I’m killed.  I’m heartbroken.  I had never been so excited in a game.  A 3-0 lead, I was all smiles.  How could a team, the Bruins, who were so good defensively blow a 3 a goal lead?  Impossible.  Or almost.

They scored 3 goals in the first 15 minutes, and then didn’t register many more scoring chances there after.  Four game 7 losses in four consecutive playoff appearances.  3 of them at home.

They choked.  The biggest collapse in NHL history.  They were one goal away from an ECF appearance.

The Bruins didn’t come to play games 5 and 6, and like the Carolina series last year, it cost them.

This loss has more ramifications than one can imagine.  Aside from the choke, the Bruins chance at being a legitimate thing in this city is over.  The Bruins are the laughing stock of the NHL right now.  What will this do to Tuukka Rask?  The man who carried us to this point, arguably cost us this game.

Not only did they lose, but they had a good chance to beat the Montreal Canadiens, and it would have been one of the best playoff series in recent history.

The Bruins blew a 3-0 series lead, a 3-0 lead in game 7, and fittingly, they lost on a too many men on the ice penalty.  Fitting.  It wasn’t meant to be.


B’s Need Offense

May 12, 2010

Ugh, this game isn’t over, but it’s not looking good.

The Bruins replaced Marco Sturm and David Krejci with Shawn Thornton and Trent Whitfield. Enough said.  This team needs to replace players with skill with, well, players with some skill.  I’d like to see Brad Marchand and Zach Hamill inserted into the lineup.  This team has yet to score with the current lineup, so their is nothing to lose.

The officiating hasn’t helped either, the Flyers getting calls left and right while the B’s can’t buy a call.


Seidenberg skates

May 8, 2010

Dennis Seidenberg skated today and remains on track with the expected recovery time. Originally when Seidenberg suffered his arm injury it was projected he would be back late in the third round, if the Bruins were to make it that far. More updates after practice.


Krejci done for playoffs

May 6, 2010

David Krejci suffered a dislocated right wrist in the first period of last night’s victory. Krejci will miss the remainder of the playoffs. 

This is a huge blow for the Bruins, who now lose one of their top overall players.  In Krejci’s absence Marc Savard, who only has 3 games under his belt since his concussion, and Vladimir Sobotka will be expected to pick up the offensive slack.


Savard the Saviour

May 2, 2010

Well my predictions fell into place last night.  The Flyers defense got timely goals (Parent and Pronger) and made it a game.  Brian Boucher was a little shaky in net, although he was an absolute beast in OT.  Marc Savard capped off the game with a bullet top shelf, “where momma hides the peanut butter and I hide the pornos.”

A great game all around.  Sucked to see Marco Sturm get injured early in the game.  Looks like he will be out for the season. Although he wasn’t producing, he still was a threat to score.  We will likely see Brad Marchand or Shawn Thornton inserted into the lineup to replace him.

I’ll be headed to game 2, can’t wait.
