Bruins game 27 wrapup

Florida Panthers at Boston Bruins

2-0, Panthers

Goals: Tomas Kopecky (Florida), Kris Versteeg (Florida, EN)

Goalies: Jose Theodore (1.000%), Tim Thomas (.966%)

The Good:

I liked seeing Bruins stand up for one another. When the Panthers’ Krystofer Barch delivered a terrible hit on Daniel Paille that had Paille miss the rest of the game as a precaution, Shawn Thornton went to town on him. The two have beef–they fought once when Barch was a Dallas Star in a game that had four fights in three seconds–but this just strengthened the beef.

"I'm fighting you not only because you hurt Pie-yay but because you spell it Krystofer."

 We also had a heck of a good speedy start and quite nearly scored a goal–Jack Edwards thought it was a goal and the NESN score graphic briefly changed. Sadly, it was not to be.

The Bad:

I’m so tempted to recycle “everything?” from Tuesday night, but honestly, not every single thing was bad, just most things. Like how we kept hitting the pipes. That terrible ping noise was audible at least five times during the game. How agonizing it is!

Paging Milan Lucic: do you remember how to score?

 Again with the top line’s epic and utter fail. Milan Lucic actually helped Tomas Kopecky score the goal; he was trying to set up a play in the Florida zone but the puck dribbled right behind his stick, was stolen and then that goal-scoring play happened. But there were other times he missed great open net chances and rebounds given up by Jose Theodore, who seemed more likely to let a rebound occur than to freeze the puck and stop play.

I was just so frustrated tonight. It felt like October all over again in the worst way possible.

The Ugly:

Paille didn’t return to the game, partly as a precaution, but I’m worried about the extent of his injury. Hope to see you back soon, Pies.

Next Game:

at Columbus Blue Jackets

December 10


I am sincerely hoping we learned our lesson last time when we nearly lost to a team I guess we thought we’d win like 17-0 against, you know. I guess we’ll just see!
