It’s amazing how much better 2-1 feels than 2-0. That being said, the Bruins are still a game behind, and getting a win in the 2nd away game in this series would be absolutely amazing. A lot is being said of the time that the Bruins are spending in Lake Placid, but I’m not buying into that. Whether practices are in Lake Placid, Montreal, or Boston, the Bruins need to win.
And yes, I get that it was the site of Team USA’s Miracle On Ice, but least we forget, it was also the site of this:
That movie killed a piece of my soul…
Anyways, there are a few players who need to either step of their game or find new roles on the team. For example, after the last game Chris Kelly should audition to be the new PJ Axelsson of the Boston Bruins. It makes sense, as much as we loved PJ, he wasn’t anything too special…until the other team’s goalie was pulled and he became a sniper. Sadly the Bruins seem to have a hard time scoring even when there is no one in net to stop the puck.
But who else? After the jump, we look at a few.
Yeah, that pretty much sums it up. Ryder can best help the team by doing what everyone knows he can and should do, which is elevating himself to a whole new level. And by whole new level I mean the press boxes on the top floor. Seriously, I’m not saying that Seguin would have made any difference in the games we lost, but I’d rather see his rookie mistakes than Ryder’s veteran mistakes.
Oh, and take something for those bowel problems!
Game Four is at 7pm tomorrow, looks like Days of Y’Orr will be hosting another live chat, feel free to stop in and add to the madness. Details to follow!
