Not an excuse but…

Boston Globe beat-writers are reporting that a number of Bruins were pretty banged up for much of their Stanley Cup Playoff run. Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has reported that Phil Kessel and David Krejci will both undergo surgery this offseason. Kessel will have shoulder surgery on Thursday to repair a torn rotator cuff and labrum and Krejci will have hip surgery sometime next month. Both are expected to miss the start training camp this summer. There are also a number of other injuries that are now being reported by the team.

“There’s a variety of injuries we had throughout the course of the playoffs,” said Chiarelli this afternoon. “Every team has injuries. But we seemed to have a few more than other teams. I have to hand it to the players for playing through those injuries.”

Boston’s Talent Lost in Transit

Bruins Hanging Out

Is that the end of the season I see?

Hey, Boston Bruins, welcome to the second round. I know it’s been a long time since you’ve been here, but stop hitting on the chick checking coats and take advantage of the opportunity inside. This is two games in a row you’ve admired a 5-game winning streak and have played around wearing Jills instead of Jocks since then. Well here are the facts: this Carolina team is no joke, and you’re now 2 losses away from making a summer-long tee time. While that may be fine for you guys, I’d like to postpone my hacking abilities at Leo J. Martin for as long as possible. Everything about tonight’s game was ugly. From the power play(0-9 so far this series), to the defensive zone break downs to the lack of physical play;  the entire performance was god-awful.

The first period started out strong, and Boston looked like they may have righted the ship after Sunday night’s 2-0 loss (empty net goals don’t count- ask Al Iafrate) in Game 2. Milan Lucic started off the scoring by pocketing his first goal of the series after a few quick passes from Wideman and Savard. After Lucic’s goal Carolina and Boston traded penalties with nothing happening on the advantages. However, this is when Boston seemed to start falling apart. The first period did not end strong and Boston started coughing up the puck and forcing it up the boards.

Bruins keys for Game 3 success

chara

After their sweep of Montreal and the drumming they gave Carolina in Game 1, I can relate to the B’s collapse in Game 2. Boston defenseman Aaron Ward said after game 2.

“If we thought we were going through here 16-0, we’re kidding ourselves, and it’s a big test for us now”

A big test is right, and I am very excited to see how the Bruins respond to the lacksadaisickle performance they put forth in Sunday’s 3-0 loss. The good news is that I don’t think it is going to take anything drastic for the Bruins to rebound.

Recchi-ng crew officially arrives in boston

The Bruins pulled out a much needed victory this afternoon at the Garden, in one of the best Original 6 matchups of the year. I’ve been looking forward to this game for a few reasons:

1. An Original 6 team that has a lot of history with Boston. Most people don’t believe in the rivalry anymore, but I think the Original 6 is something the NHL really needs to play up.

2. Seeing some more of the young talent in the league. Kane, Toews, Versteeg, Keith, Huet, and Burish are all tremendous players and a lot of fun to watch.
