Boston VS Montreal: Game 2 Notes

Are we ever going to beat Montreal again? 5 years from now will Montreal have beaten Boston 53 straight games?

Boston totally outplayed the Habs in this game and deserved to win it big time. However, they played with fire too many times, and it was only a matter of time before the Habs connected on the power play. Boston played the last 6 minutes of the game shorthanded before Montreal scored the winner on a shot Timmy would love to have back.

The Bruins had a great team effort tonite but it was not meant to be - Montreal still has their number. Hopefully they carry the effort from tonites game into tomorrow nite and finally break the losing streak to the Habs and start their own winning streak - 4 in a row would make me happy.

Don't give up yet fans - The Bruins are not going down without a fight - they are only going to get better.

Go Bruins Go!!!

You know, I think Don Cherry was more upset about the loss than I was. I was just happy that they played like they actually wanted to win- and thought they could. Plus, Tim Thomas got his game back at the end there, which gives me hope.
The forwards played so much better, and Sobotka was a good choice, but I have issues with benching Phil. He skates hard and wasn't the worst forward in game one by any means.
I think Julien has also seriously mismanaged the defense. Giving Hnidy/Stuart as much ice time as he does has been dangerous on a few occasions, and his inexplicable love for Dennis Wideman is getting out of hand. Despite glaring defensive mistakes he's favored in all situations- even PK, which he shouldn't be anywhere near. Why not play Andrew Ference more? He may not be as great on offense, but he's no bum, and he's much smarter and more reliable in our zone.
Anyway, the Bruins made me kind of not hate them. Go B's!

i have to take umbridge with saying tim wanted that shot back. i think the shot tipped off of z's stick (not sure about this) AND the shot clanged in off the post or cross bar or both. until a goalie who's body dimensions are 4x6 comes along, shots off the post can not be faulted on the goalie. i think they where giving kovalev too much roam on the power play all night. i would like to see z play him a little tighter and not be able to rip off his shot at will like that. so to restate your point i think z would like to have that last shot back to maybe force kovalev more to decrease the windup or get more of a piece of it.

neb - I was by no means blaming Timmy on that shot - It was a great shot and a great goal from Kovalev.
Just that by looking at Timmy's reaction after he showed disappointment in that he would like to have it back.
I just reread what I wrote and I see what you mean but I repeat I wasn't then nor now blaming Timmy - he played fantastic in that game.
