Gameday - Bruins @ Senators 09/01/2007

I am going to attempt live blogging again, as I will be at the game tonight. Thanks to a tip from Doobie I now have the ability to send in posts by email. I have been busy with work today and didn't get a chance to check any news, but I've heard rumours that Chara is out for sure. Other than that I am in the dark!

I will be making new posts after each period if everything goes as planned. See you in a couple hours.

Period 1

Looks like it's going to be a packed crowd tonight and I was feeling pretty good until I saw the scratches. Not only are we without Chara but now no Brad Stuart! Some good news though, York, Alberts, Mowers, Primeau, and Donovan are the starters. :t

A penalty for holding is called on Jurcina to begin the 1st. Boston did a great job killing off the penalty though and at the end of the penalty Sturm got the puck for.a great opportunity only to be pulled down. Penalty shot!!!!! Sturm wasted little time scoring on a hesitation deke. 1-0

After a quick shot by the Sens and a great save by Thomas, Mara got a holding call. Ottawa had control for most of the penalty but Boston never allowed any quality shots. Boston is controlling the play with about 8 minutes to go and Paul Mara scores on a shot from the blue line on a beauty pass from Mowers! 2-0

Boyes got a penalty right after the start of the play for tripping and Ottawa is going back to the PP already. No problem killing off that penalty, the Bruins are really buzzing tonight. It will be tough for them to keep up this pace for three period without Stuart and Chara though. A few great saves by Thomas and it was a great high energy start. My friend says that if Thomas continues to dominate the Sens he is no longer my friend :)

Period 2

Sissy holding call on Sigalet 2 minutes into the second for another Ottawa PP. Redden helped out the cause by getting a hooking call 50 seconds in to the PP.giving the Bruins a short PP of their own. Ottawa has been the better team this period, but have been unable to capitalize on their open opportunities.

A couple more penalties, one for Ottawa and one for Boston but pretty much end to end action from both teams. Very entertaining period with under 6 minutes to go. Great game so far, Kessel isn't on much but when he is getting nailed by some wicked hits. Still 2-0 Boston at the end of the second period.

Period 3

Well two and a half in and Mike Comrie flew out front of Thomas and flicked it by the sprawling goalie. It is turtle time for Boston. Another score by the Sens with Heatly sending a great shot top corner past Thomas, 2-2. Hopefully this will wake them up! Ottawa is still buzzing with chance after chance but Savard (I think) just came back with a ripper. Off the post.

Typing is getting hard as I have just chewed off my right hand. Can you say no defence!! They score... You suck Alfredsson. The game should be 5-2 not 3-2, thanks to Thomas. Well that seals the deal. Another breakaway goal this one by Patrick Eaves coming down the wing and scoring 5-hole. 4-2 with 2 minutes to go and the Bruins will not come back.

The only spark at all left for Boston is in the Kessel line. They have been up tempo whenever they're out there. As I type the Senators have scored an empty netter and that is it. Bruins loose 5-2.

By the way this is TreeBob not JimBuff, he edited the post originally and it assumed his identity.

3rd period sucked but it was great to have live blogging from The Palladian, Corel Center or whatever it is called this week.

Good Job!!!

Horrible. This team simply cannot put their opponents away. Going into this game, Ottawa was 1-14-1 when trailing after two periods, which only underscores the Bruins' 3rd period woes.

As good as he was in the first two periods, Thomas also fell apart in the 3rd. He was betrayed by putrid defensive play (Sigalet looked very raw), but one...if not two...of those goals should have been stopped.

Will this team ever learn to headman the puck? Alberts has 4 guys skating ahead of him and still he tries to carry it all the way himself. Turnover- score. Mercy.
They all do it.

Please the puck, please.

Lashoff and Alberts hold the fort. Lashoff was impressive for a guy who had only 8 games of NHL experience. York's spot on the roster is greatly in danger.

Thomas has lost his touch. The first goal was brutal and it killed the team. After that goal, the young defensemans were nervous and the energy was pretty low. Look like PC will have to find a #1 very, very soon.

Good job by Kessel in his first game. I'm amaze to see this guy on the ice after a cancer surgery. That's the kind of courage and movitation some players could use on our team !

All the defencemen held the fort for the first 2 periods. Loosing York right away and no Stuart or Chara meant doom from the beginning. There was no way they could keep up the pressure like they were.

The defence DID collapse in the third. Thomas played great the whole game. Yeah the Eaves goal (4th goal) maybe should have been stopped, but it was over before that one.

They sat back for the whole third period. It was like watching bees swarming around a hive. The reason they had no energy was not because of the goal it was because they had NO energy! They played 3 men down! Sure we called up Sigalet, but come on. You can't just replace Chara and Stuart minutes with 4 "rookies" and hope for a good outcome.

It is well known you don't like Thomas Latrappe and that's fine but please have the balls to post with your real nick.

Are you assuming that it is Latrappe b/c in his post he says, "Thomas's stock is dropping dramatically"?
Thomas's ??????

And do you assume that Latrappe hates Thomas b/c he also quotes, "Shopping for goaltending might becomes his prority"?

Maybe it wasn't him (:

Neb, looks like the disappointing games right now. Almost like how they played at the beginning of the year.

A Slingbox, eh? Niiiice!
