With most Bruins fans either getting ready for baseball or talking about next year, I thought I'd write a few words about the Ottawa game. The Bruins are following the classic struggling team form by rebounding from a string of losses in important games to beat a hot team, now that the pressure to succeed is gone. Of course, every win from now on in only hurts their draft position, which is pretty funny. Unless you are a Sens fan! Losing to the Bruins at home must have been rather embarrasing!
A couple of notes:
I miss Muzz and PJ. Sometimes I look at the roster and think, "who are these guys?"
It was nice to see Chara smile again.
I think Wideman has really come along in the last few games. He's been hitting more than I expected and he seems pretty good at it.
MacDonald has been a very pleasant surprise. After how poorly Toivanen and Finley fared when thrown into the Bruins defensive grinder he's been impressive!
Jeremy Reich. Wow. Can we order three more of him, one for each line? Please?
