Yeah this week is about as big as it gets.
The season basically comes down to these next 4 games. Take 3 out of 4 and their virtually guaranteed a playoff spot (barring an 0-7-0 run or something similar in the remaining games).
It will be interested to see how Cassidy and the team respond to playoff-like pressure. Let's hope they meet the challenge.
Some roster moves were made over the weekend. Cehlarik and Czarnik were returned to Providence; Acciari and Kuraly recalled yesterday on an emergency basis. Bergy and Stafford didn't practice yesterday. Cassidy said it was a maintenance day for Bergy and he's with the team in Toronto, so hopefully he is good to go. Stafford's wife gave birth to twins this weekend but he is supposed to join the team in Toronto as well.
Thanks to CSNNE for this stat:
Records so far this year vs the next 4 opponents:
Gotta turn things around vs 3 of them.
82 points in 72 games so far. 95 point pace. I'll be happy with 5 points out of the next 8 possible, ecstatic at 7.
Lines at the morning skate:
Rask in net. Not sure what the deal is with Backes, hopefully he's just taking his option. He did practice yesterday.
Ick. Seeing 11 on that top line is...not good.
Hoping it's just a placeholder.
Backes is sick apparently. GTD, though Cassidy expects him.
I would even take 2-2 in the next four games. To me the biggest games are Toronto and Tampa, take those two and I am happy with whatever else happens.
Yeah, they really need to find a way to beat Toronto tonight. Obviously all 4 games are big (really every game is right now), but I feel like tonight is the most important of them all.
Losing to Toronto was bad for Claude in February, that's for sure
I had a beer with @Dogman2 today. That bodes well for the Bruins tonight, as they have never lost a game when I had a beer with Dogman earlier in the day.
His father's name? Dogman1
Back to you, Doc
Yeah but which obscure junior team/college did Dogman1 go from Dogboy to Dogman?
"He honed his playing skills at the University of Connecticut, where he was, of course, a Huskie."
Looks like Backes is in; Hayes out.
Haven't been nervous for a big B's game in a while. Feels good to be playing meaningful hockey in mid-March.
Rask played 1 period last week, so he should be fully rested. Could really use improved play from him.
McQuaid-esque screen by Gardiner. Marchand is God
Oof poor Beleskey
Glad to see Acciari in the lineup
Marchand is simply on another level.
Love the feistiness out of Pasta there.
I wanna see Pasta throw down, I bet he has some lowkey heavy fists
2 min eh? Ok
Someone better take a number
He'd better get a call from the league office for that nonsense.
Dirty fucking hit right there. Should be an at least an extra to Toronto but don't mind Bergy going back at him there.
Some year this team won't get screwed on PPs
Of course it's even.
Bergy pissed, rightfully so.
4 on 4, eh? Something something garage league something
Went in off his knee, that's a good goal.
Fuck off, refs.
Bring me Soshnikov's head
I thought that should be 5 and a game. He cross checked him face first into the boards.
My call is Backes delivering the justice.
If they are going to target our stars then it's time for Matthews to have a good hello given to him
Refs fucked them
Not going to happen. No chance in hell Soshnikov fights
Don't need him to fight back.
I still can't believe that wasn't a power play
Here we fucking go.
I hate these refs. They suck
In reality though - it should have been 4 on 4 there. 5 for Soshnikov and 2 for Bergy. So I guess the goal was valid. It should just be a PP now.
Fuck me that sucks
Holy Shit Miller almost had that. What a move.
