  • I sort of envy you for being able to be part of the NHL festivities. You don't have a lot of TV coverage of NHL games in Germany (and our league, which is in fact covered, is crappy).

    As for the Bruins defense, I am not quite up to date with who the bigshort defenders in the NHL are in these days. But Gonchar and Slegr sure used to be one.

    Maybe the Bruins should have convinced Ray Bourque to play a little longer (and not go for Colorada!)...maybe until he would be 50. He was still damn good, even when he r
    • Gonchar has been terrible defensively at time (including last night). He's a very good player, but defensively, he's average. Their problem has more to do with team defense than individual efforts though, and everyone has been slacking.

      Last night all three goals (not including the two empty-netters) were to blame on the team leaving men open. On the first, O'Donnell's man slid past him and another Bruin picked him up, and instead of looking around for another man to pick up, he stood there looking at the puck. A Canadien skated in behind him and deflected the puck in.

      On the second, the puck came from the left of the goal to the right, and the entire Bruins defense turned toward the puck. Koivu skated over to the big empty space, with the Bruins defense facing the other way, and accepted the pass for a one-timer. The third was the same basic thing.

      Part of it is just lack of focus and intensity. They need to pick it up.
