Does it seem weird to anyone else that Boston has games right in the middle of the NFL playoff window two weeks in a row, especially given how few games are scheduled overall?

Last time I started a Sox thread, they won and I went golfing in the sticks the next day, lost the signal on my phone and had to forfeit.
Not a concern in January, but unless the B’s pick it up, it won’t matter.

Was hoping that Hall goal a couple games ago might get him going but nope
I think this experiment with him on the top line has thrown him off. If I’m Monty, I’m seriously thinking about going:

Marchand-Bergeron-Frederic
Czechs
Hall-Coyle-Foligno
Greer-McLaughlin-Smith

…with that last line just going out to spell the top 3.

I’d also just use lines and pairs on the PP right about now. The units are actually a detriment.

I’m really hoping they’re just checked out. Big break coming, they’re tired, & ready to take a break. That’s the best case scenario. Yikes.

Everything about this stretch is starting to scream that they need one more RW. I suspect both their 5v5 and PP problems stem from a lack of DeBrusk in the lineup, just to set everyone where they belong.

Hopefully DeBrusk coming back soon will help get people back onto the lines where they were doing well.

There’s a reason why nobody has played .850 hockey for an entire season. This is probably the toughest trip of the year. Expecting them to look great tonight is probably asking too much.
