A Look into the Playoffs Pt. 1


The Boston Bruins.

They sit atop the heap.  they were the first Eastern Conference team to secure a playoff spot.

Lets take a good look at the Boston Bruins and what they have going on…Want to save yourself some reading? This team has it all. Done.


Points: #91 Marc Savard 23g,55a,78p

Goals: #81 Phil Kessel 31g,23a

Second in points is #46 David Krejci(21g,43a), making him not only the 3rd Bruin to be mentioned, but also the third center to be mentioned.

Look for Patrice Bergeron to rediscover himself.

RW Michael Ryder has 25 goals. Remember him? Faceoff BANG goal.

Milan Lucic goes to the net hard and doesn’t take shit from anybody. He also feels the need to prove the latter… frequently.

Along with those guys is a mix of veterans and promising youngsters in Axelsson, Kobasew, Wheeler, and the newly added Recchi.


The Boston Bruins defense is led by #6 Dennis Wideman. His supporting cast includes Former Penguin Andrew Ference, Steve Montador (newcomer), Aaron Ward, Matt Hunwick,Marc Stuart, and Shane Hnidy. They also have this guy named Zdeno or something.

The Boston Bruins are #1 in Team GGA with 2.26

For real…Wideman’s having a great year. He and Chara can produce points from the blue line.


Tim Thomas and Manny Fernandez.

Both of them are having good years. Manny Fernandez hasn’t played in a while and it would appear that Boston is looking for Tim Thomas to carry them through their playoff run.

Special Teams

Boston has the #5 Power Play, 28.0%

Their Penalty Kill is #3, 84.5%

Watched some of the game on Sunday against the Devils…Impressive powerplay.

So What?

The Bruins are 2-1-1 against the Penguins this season.

The cumulative score: 14-12 Bruins.

The Penguins have been able to score on Boston, despite their impressive tandem in goal and tough defense.

It’s also important to note that the 2 wins Boston picked up over Pittsburgh were during the Pens’ midseason slide.

The Pens can beat the Bruins in a 7 game series.



I need to put pictures in posts. It’s not that I haven’t figured out how to do it, I just haven’t figured out how I’d like to do it.

Took me way too long just to make a banner. Photoshop has changed a lot since 10th grade journalism class.


Next: New Jersey Devils
