Kudos to the team for battling through the 3rd period. They've played a lot of hockey lately and the Bruins were well rested (except for having to play with 5 D). It wasn't always pretty - but a win is a win and for now at least they can enjoy life at the top.

I don't care if they get shots - but they need to try to at least hold onto the puck for more than a desperation clear.

A whole lot of careless passing going on out there tonight.. Boston has had some good speed coming up the middle.
- Comment on Habs’ Bourque sidelined with upper-body injury (2013-12-04 13:17:14)
He's a project. They drafted hiim based on what he could become - not what he is currently. People had the same sort of worry about Tinordi in his first year with London. These guys are big bodies that need to learn how to play. If it takes him 4 years to figure it out the Habs will still be pleased as anything.

They also use other current contracts as comparables - so my point is to sign them now before things get out of hand. You can still make the case for PK at 7M. Do that now before they start signing lesser guys to contracts north of that.

If Bergevin is smart he gets PK locked up soon before the influx of cash into the NHL from the Rogers deal starts having a huge impact on the price of elite talent. Lundqvist just signed a 7 year extension for $8.5M per season. Even if it seems expensive now - it won't in 2 years. If you can get Markov to sign for 2 more do that now too. Pacioretty's deal will be incredible in 2015-16 and beyond.

Watch out Max, the leafs were so upset by your outrageous goal celebration that they came half way back.. That'll teach you.

The best way to score on a big goalie is to get him moving east-west. We see this when Carey gives up goals - usually because he's overplayed to one side. Bishop has shown he's willing to get way out there. It just means MTL will need to keep getting people into the slot area to bang in rebounds and for passes.

I would rather rip off my ears.

My feed on gamecenter doesn't have announcers in it.. I'm on cloud nine!
