Game 3 Preview: Bruins vs. Montreal — The mettle of a man

Boston Bruins vs. MoOntreal Canadiens Game 3
Game 3 tonight. In Montreal. Holy cow.

Bruins have looked like crap in the first two games. No two ways about it. In fact, this commercial explains it all.

They’re not shitting in the woods ’cause they crapped all over the Garden ice in Game 1 and Game 2.

Bruins have been horrible at home this year, but they looked extra horrid in the first two games.

We can’t even defend the team’s play. There hasn’t been anything for us to be optimistic about from the first two games.

Time for that to change.

Bruins have been Road Warriors all season. If the Bs want to actually show like they belong in the playoffs it has to start tonight.

Inch by inch. It’s gotta start tonight.

Boston’s been a hot/cold, streaky team all season as well. If they win tonight, it could get the ball rolling in the right direction. It’s time for the Bruins roster to show their mettle. It’s gotta start in the arena they haven’t won a game yet all season.

Better late than never.

DOY-Bruins Live Chat
We haven’t done this before but we’re going to give it a shot for Game 3 — a live chat here on Days of Y’Orr. We’ll probably do it via Cover-It Live. Everyone’s invited. Not sure how it’s going to go. It might suck. It might not. We’ll see.

Projected Roster:
There was no practice yesterday for Boston (clearly their game is perfect as it is), so we’re not sure how Julien, of all people, would shuffle the lines. We’re expecting more of the same. Off-chance Rask and Seguin see ice time.

Milan Lucic-David Krejci-Nathan Horton
Brad Marchand-Patrice Bergeron-Mark Recchi
Chris Kelly-Rich Peverley-Michael Ryder
Daniel Paille-Gregory Campbell-Shawn Thornton

Dennis Seidenberg-Johnny Boychuk
Tomas Kaberle-Adam McQuaid
Andrew Ference-Shane Hnidy

Tim Thomas
Tuukka Rask

Pucksage has some interesting line combos. If Chara’s ready to go, we’d image the d-pairings would go back to normal.
