Re: Who Tampa doesn't want to see in the fin

FWIW, I don't think Tampa is worried about anyone. They may still 'beat themselves with overconfidence, or hit a hot goalie, or get out coached, but they are just as likely to bulldoze.

Chara - 1 more year

Took a cap friendly deal of $2M with ~ 1.7 in incentives. He is 42 now, but ... only McAvoy and Krug play more minutes per game, and anchors the 3rd best defense in the NHL.

If he is willing to take on this kind of contract, happy to have [more]

Columbus -

I have said I want to enjoy Columbus on the bubble to the last day. Instead of letting Panarin go, they went 'all in' and acquired additional unrestricted guys, like Duchene and make a playoff run … now. They have not looked good so [more]

Re: Leafs Playoff dilemma!!!

Not a dilemma. Playout the string and rest Anderson and accept being the away team for Boston. Don't over exert in an effort to catch Boston. Montreal is on the bubble, and may not even be able to get to where Toronto is now. Falling to them [more]

Re: Overheard - surprising

How can a team have only 4 (Vegas) or 6 (Leafs) fighting majors in 70+ games. That too is nuts.

Overheard - surprising

During the Bruins -Islanders, that the Bruins lead the league in fighting majors. Really? This after Chara pounded little (6'3") Matt Martin.

2-0 Bruins in second. Bruins dominating the game, very quick on loose pucks and getting [more]

Re: Eastern Conference

Lightning clinch Presidents' cup ... with still 9 games to go. And with the team behind them (Bruins) having the second highest point total in the league. Nuts. They should rest a plenty.

Eastern Conference

I remember earlier in the season when it looked like both wild cards would come from the Atlantic (Montreal, Buffalo), but …. now it looks like neither.

Re: Freddy Andersen

I recall last year that he was near the top in games played for goalies. His backup had good numbers and the playoff situation was not in jeopardy, yet It looked like they overplayed him.

Re: Brad Marchand!!!

So ….. it may not be fully set in stone, but the cement is poured.

But honestly, good for him. It was only a few years ago that the Bruins had an epic end of season collapse that had them drop from division lead to out of the playoffs over [more]

Anyone worried that the Bruins 'peaked' early?

With Pastrnak and now Debrusk out, not really. As long as both are playoff ready. If goal tending goes bad, that would be another story. The media here seem oblivious that it has [more]

Homestretch

Most teams have their final dozen games queued up for the stretch run.

Can the Bruins hold off Toronto for home ice?

Who wins the Metro.

Can Columbus get in? Will it only be to get over run by Tampa?
