Jesus Christ, Nash
Krug and Gryz were the low lights for me. Bergeron was solid, Marchand was up and down. Riley Nash was bad for the forwards and I don’t really get the Wingels love.
I would not replace Krug or Gryz; their upside is what made them one of the best teams in the east.
This. That was bookended with his 6 on 5 whiff late to lose the zone. That was a shitty hockey game.You just cannot make unforced turnovers. It’s one thing to lose pucks when attached. It’s another to do what Gryz did 1 minute into the game putting you into an immediate hole
Do it. I was very much anti-Donato but at this point, what’s another defensive lapse or two?The Bruins need to elevate their game. We will see if they do that on Friday. They also need offense and I am finally ready to unleash the Donato. Let the kid get a shot on the third line and either bench Heinen or Shift him down to the 4th for Wingels. Donato’s speed could really be needed here.
Unleash him. Free the Donato.
They don’t. Same with the forwards.More importantly, I don't think they realistically have the personnel to replace them.
You’re overreacting to one game. They were 3rd in goals allowed all year and have gone up against the two best teams in the east. They were bad tonight but will be better.I don't think it's an effort thing. It's talent on defense. The Bruins just aren't ready defensively yet. I think they worked hard tonight. They're just not there yet.
Game 2 was the same way. Game 1 they were rusty after not playing for a week and it showed. Watch them defend and watch the Bruins defend. I hope I'm wrong but I don't think they have the talent on defense to win if Tampa plays well.You’re overreacting to one game. They were 3rd in goals allowed all year and have gone up against the two best teams in the east. They were bad tonight but will be better.
