look at you posting! i was just coming here to post something similar, but you beat me to it.

ill add that last year i had a number posts on what i percieved as one of the primary weeknesses of the team. this was the performance of the bottom half of the line up. so some facts in that vein.

of the players to appear in all 6 games only 2 do not have any points albert and thornton.

top six point producers have 33 points.

middle six point producers have 17 points

bottom six point producers have 4 points

the four game winninng goals are from ward, sturm, kobasew and lucic.

if the playoffs began today the bruins would open at home against the islanders

How 'bout these from good ole ESPN:

Player power rankings: no Bruin in the top 15; they highlight how good Backstrom is playing in goal.

Team power rankings: the Bruins are listed 25th overall. Behind the Caps. The Sharks, who have more or less the same record, are ranked 3rd.

Maybe they should change the name of the team to the "Dangerfields."

It's really too bad that ESPN has made itself irrelevant by turning its back on Hockey...
