They've only said that Savard will miss the weekend or a minumum of 4 games. But like I said earlier, a broken bone in his back can't be good. Maybe we get lucky and it isn't more serious than it sounds.
So Kobasew is out for 6 weeks so pretty much the year, Savard might as well wait a little while because we dont NEED him right now.
Lucic had one of his best games of the year without a goal. He looked awesome.
That was DEF offsides by Kessel but who cares haha.
Bruins look good to make the playoffs.
Great win last night, the second period looked scary but in the third period the Bruins stepped up. Phil Kessel had one of his best games of the year using his speed, looking like he cared last night checking not giving the puck away playing defense. Guys there is no question he is a frustrating player because he'll play a great game like he did last night then the next couple of games Kessel looks lost out there giving the puck away getting trapped up ice and not showing any grit and toughness. But this kid has great hands let's just remember he is only 20 years old he is learning at the NHL level.
Let's hope the Devils breakout of their 5 game losing streak tonight against the Flyers, New Jersey has beaten Philly 5 straight this is a big game for Bruins fans if the Devils win it would give us a game in hand against Philly plus we own the tiebreaker against them also.
I don't know about you guys but doesn't it seem like the whole team is playing a lot better with Marc Savard out of the lineup? Is it possible they theey were relying on him too much? Maybe the other players were trying to get the puck to him too much. And without him they all of a sudden have to think for themselves. This could be good for them if it breaks them out of that habit while he's out. David Krejci is definately stepping his game up in his place. I've been very impressed with his play since the All-Star break.
This team is going to be loaded with top talent at center. Now we just need to get a few more good wingers.
Can you imagine what it's going to be like for other players to play against Milan Lucic in about 5 years? And he'll only be 24 then. I feel bad for those guys. Ha Ha Ha! I love this kid!
Gibber, pinned means when a CBS administrator pins your thread so it's always at the top of the message board. It looks like a tac in the very left hand column of the board.
At least the Flyers only got the one. I'll take it. This last week is going to be very nerve racking to say the least. I'll be chewing my finger nails through every game.
Anyone heard any new news on Savard?
I talked to Neeley tonight and he said Savard is looking questionable for tomorow. He said Kobasew is out for the year and there is no reason to think Bergeron will be back this year.
Well maybe I didnt talk to Neeley but these are the facts. I talked to a friend of a trainer.
What we are looking for tomorow:
Islanders beat Philly
Panthers beat Caps (most important)
My bookie has The Caps as the underdogs. Hopefully they play like the lesser team and lose. If the Bruins lose and the Caps win...the Bruins are in bad shape.
However, if the Bruins win and the Caps lose, the Bruins will be alone in 7th place, 1 pt behind 6th and 2 points behind 5th. We would also be 4 points above Washington and 6 points above Buffalo.
This next week is going to be so interesting to watch.
