Anyone watch the Bruins/Capitals game Saturday?
Well if you did, and you follow the Bruins than you saw all of their problems rise up in one game.
First off the forwards were slow, and the top line of Lucic-Krejci-Seguin can’t keep up their insane play as of the last 4 games. The third line, the one centered by Kelly is definitely the one that is missing Peverley, Horton, and Pouliot. They need scoring, and their scorers are all injured. I mean, Rolston has a nice shot, but he looks lost out there.
The defense looks good at the top end, with Chara, Boychuk and Seidenberg, but after that, they look kind of conservative and confused. Joe Corvo needs to be dropped down to the last defensive line, he shouldn’t be out there as long as he is. And Zanon should be on that third line with him, they both aren’t very good in the Bruins’ scheme.
Claude Julien needs to sit Thomas for more than a few games before the Playoffs. If he gets injured, then we will have a AHL goalie starting in the Stanley Cup Playoffs; because Turco is ineligible for the Playoffs. The Bruins time to get rolling is shortening and they need to, fast.
I hope Julien knows what he’s doing because I’d love to see them win back to back Cups. Right now though it doesn’t look like they’ll get past the first round.
