I turned the game on with 6 minutes to go...that non call on Pasta was criminal- to call Marchy for 1/2 the same penalty was brutal.

Jack and Brick kept saying the Bruins “let the Flyers hang around” but I don’t think that was really the case. It was kind of a lousy performance. The D kinda sucked, particularly 33-73 IMO. Uncharacteristic, they’ll clean that up.

The deeper problems are no secret. They have 5 goals since the break ended- Bergeron, Pastrnak, Bergeron, Pastrnak, Pastrnak- 3 ES and 2 PPG. That is what needs to be addressed by the front office.

If that puck doesn’t take a shit bounce off Heinen’s stick, are we still having this discussion?

I like that Cassidy is mad...I just think it's a little misguided. These guys are professionals, Chara isn't a babysitter. His leadership hasn't been a problem for 20 years, I don't think it's the problem on this team. And Carlo was fine tonight in the 30 minutes I saw. He was all over the ice, for better and (sometimes) worse. I'd much rather see that than him standing around being indecisive. I didn't notice McAvoy, which is a legitimate problem.

Fixing the black hole at 3C and not benching one of your best 4 defensemen might help the team play better. Just my $0.02

I think Butch is a better judge of what he wants to see from his D than we are...if he's publicly throwing dudes under the bus, then he's not getting what he wants.

This seems to be a fairly routine thing though- he has a couple of times a year he throws some heat on the players and they've responded well in the past. I think it's just the fact that it's on Chara (although it's more to other people via Chara) that makes it so startling.
