Sad that there won't be any Bs hockey for almost a week, but they more than deserve this break.

I wonder why Greer played so little (3:52 total). He was out there to congratulate Ullmark after game, though, so I don't think he was injured.

They were average today, at best. They need this break.
The Rangers were leaning hard on Trocheck, Panarin, Kane, Kreider and Zibanejad. All of them played over 20 minutes. The only Bruin forward over 19 minutes TOI was Marchand.

Or in other words the Rangers were pressing while the Bruins just went with their usual game plan.

Funny thing, I have Kreider on my fantasy team, and I thought he was out today because I didn’t hear his name. He played 20:22 :D

That Trocheck/Panarin/Kane line got pushed around all day. If that’s what they’re trying to build, I don’t really see it as a winning formula in the playoffs at this point in their careers. If it were 2013 Kane instead of 2023 Kane, maybe it works, but it just wasn’t there for them today.

Holy cow. +51 goal differential in third period alone. If they didn’t count the other periods that would still tie them for 2nd place overall in the league. Ridiculous this team.
55-35 in the 1st
82-50 in the 2nd
89-40 in the 3rd (14 ENG).

This team's m/o is playing solid, mistake-free hockey and then letting the other teams tire themselves out trying to catch up. Tired teams make more mistakes and it shows as the B's goal total goes up as the games go on.

Kane looked terrible btw. Looks like I might have been wrong on his current value. I believe he was on the ice for all four Bruins goals?

Just feels like you never see this team chasing a game ever. And not just because they are winning most of the time and are 20 points clear of 2nd place. They almost always seem to be on their front foot.

Even with Hall and Foligno out it is just so clear that there are no bad players on the team. How grueling must that be for opponents to not have a single player/line to take advantage of?

Tomorrow night's game is being shown on ESPN+/Hulu (and not on NESN or seemingly anywhere else). I have what I'm sure is Hulu's most basic subscription -- does that mean I can watch the game, or do I need to pay some other fee? What are the options for watching this game? It's maddening that it's not clear and there's zero fucking chance I'm going to sign up for ESPN+ or some advanced Hulu subscription. (I don't even like ESPN minus, so plus is out of the question.)
