Re: Oilers

There was some odd statistic or metric discussed in the Puck Soup podcast (which now has Sean McIndoe of Down Goes Brown, since Dave Lozo left the podcast). Don't recall what it was but it had to do with when McDavid was on the ice vs when he was [more]

Re: Goals created

It is an odd stat. One that rewards a high number of assists, but not as equal to a goal, like 'points' does. You could have Crosby's goal numbers, but with a low number of assists would have a 'goals created' below your goal [more]

Reverse Groundhog Day

It's when ….

The Patriots win the AFC. Followed by 2 weeks of Marshall Faulk popping his head out of a hole to whine about Spygate. Expected to be especially heavy this year.

Re: 9 days!

Teams have games through Wednesday before the all star break -- odd that the Bruins don't have another before the break, but … they don't.

Re: Boston vs. Toronto

The islanders are not so relevant for that first round matchup. Its a good bet there will be another Boston Toronto series for the 2-3 Atlantic matchup. Hard to see Tampa falling, but .... could happen, and yes Buffalo or Montreal could slip into 3rd [more]

Boston Buffalo

A healthy Bruins team is starting to reassert itself and showed that against Buffalo (and recently Calgary). Buffalo was itself short Eichel. A couple of observations on the game.

Buffalo isn't fully cohesive yet. Good players, but still [more]

Re: Winter Classic

I hate the 6 division stupid NHL standings.

Nah, I don't mind the loser point, just make a regulation win worth 3.

Not yet. But I have a few times entered the 'price of my groceries' which the cashier called out to me rather than my PIN when paying with a debit card.

This one site considers contenders and pretenders outside the 'big 5' obvious contenders of Tampa Bay, Toronto, Winnipeg, Washington and Nashville. No argument on those 5 being the top dogs.

Honestly, didn't get to see much of it. That is a shame as it looks from highlights like a good game. Obviously pleased with the outcome, and prior to it the B's pulled out a nice win over Buffalo as well. Hustle guy Sean Kuraly got key [more]

Re: Bruins near term future

The Canucks have to thank Boston for the ‘Kuraly’-clone, Tim Schaller.

Bruins near term future

With Bergeron out, the Bruins over reliance on its top line was exposed. While the B's are still the second best defensive team in the league, their scoring is …. anemic (27th). But lately, they opted for putting Krejci on the first line with [more]
