caught up on highlights. why was Price pulled? he wasn't the issue, #6 (or was it 26) on defense for the Habs was.

Sometimes you take the goalie out so you can look at the defenders and say "LOOK WHAT YOU MADE ME DO!"

I mean I don’t think there’s any doubt - it would not be unexpected if Bruce were to cycle goalies in the playoffs, and he said as much going into this year
The Isles rotation is pretty good too (plus Trotz is a goalie/defense whisperer). I suspect more teams will follow the Isles and B’s goalie timeshare plans going forward given the success both teams have had with it. The other end of the spectrum is the Leafs and Vegas disasters.

Saint Catherine is blushing; the Bruins are doing more scoring than her street is.

Given that it looks like the Celtics could make a deep run too, it will be an advantage to have a fresh goalie available on the inevitable playoff back-to-backs that will result.

McAvoy- 1st is the year, last regular to score
Studnicka- 1st career goal
Pasta- 2nd 4 goal game of the season, would give him 24 in 24 games

that gets us to 10. Let’s see it

Montreal has 63 shot attempts to the Bruins 41, 34 SOG to 20. Halak and the D have been outstanding.

NST had the Bruins with 1.83 expected goals in all situations tonight. Feels super low to me even considering I didn’t think it was a true domination, but we can all point and laugh at Price and Kinkaid for giving up 8.

Just got back from hockey, saw the score, watched the highlights.
A) LOL Habs.
B) What a fucking wagon. I don’t know if they’re going to win the Cup, but this team is ridiculous.

Pastnak's three goals were impressive. His normal one timer from the right circle, a one on one snap shot snipe and a perfect tip from in front of the crease. Skills.

Coyle's pass on that one goal was ridiculous.
