The One Man Team

Since Bergy went out with injury at the end of October the Bruins have played 6 games. Since Patrice couldn't play it seems that all the rest of the Bruins decided not to play either - all that is except for goalkeeper Tim "The Trapper" Thomas.

In the 6 games played so far in November the offense has managed 142 shots which translates to a pathetic 23.7 per game. The defense has been even worse allowing 219 shots or 36.5 per game. With stats like this you would think that The Bruins wouldn't have gained a single point but that is where the brilliance of Timmy comes in. Despite being totally outplayed in these games the B's were only outscored 13 - 11 and managed to go .500 in this stretch gaining 6 points in 6 games.

Timmy has single handedly kept The Bruins respectable and for the 3rd straight season is our most valuable player. If one person on the whole team can keep the team's season alive we should be in good shape when either the "D" or "O" or both wake up and start playing. This team is loaded with talent and sooner or later will start to play like they are capable of. Until then the team as well as all Bruin's fans need to tip their hats and thank "The Trapper" for keeping our season positive in this slump from the rest of the team.

I agree that Timmy's playing spectacularly. But I'm not sure I think the team is really in a slump, nor that their recent woes are that much related to losing Bergeron.

I think it may simply be that they have been playing very good teams that are just like them--very good defensively. And did we really expect them to win 2 against the Sens?

I really hope they get rid of the unbalanced schedule next season. The teams in the division all play the same style. It makes for some very repetitive hockey.
