2. WHAT PREVIOUS OPPONENT FANBLOGS SAID:

via Pension Plan Puppets via MapleLeafHotStove on Boston's 4-1 win over the Leafs:

1 – The Leafs are 14-10-2 and congratulations Bruins, nothing else to say really. It is frustrating but sometimes you just gotta shake their hand and say it – Boston: You’re a better team right now. Outscored us 23-6 in the last four games.

2 – Game started out with a really good pace in the first period, but other than us keeping pace with the Bruins, it was much of the same – a lot of turnovers and Bruins generating chances from those turnovers and off the cycle. We had virtually no offensive zone time but did play solid defense in the first period.

3 – The first Bruins goal was a typical example of one thing Boudreau spoke about in the latest THN issue. Good puck movement by the Bruins, we were caught of out position and it’s 1-0 Bruins from a Krejci stick. We also turned it over after having possession on the wall. The second goal was an example of the Leafs running around in our own zone. The third… ah you get the picture.

 

3. PLAYER THAT WILL PISS YOU OFF.

#63 – Brad Marchand

Marchand is our generation's Pat Verbeek. He isn't afraid to job, and he can score. Solid player, but we'll be wishing the scoreboard fell on him by the end of the game.

 

 

4. PLAYER THAT WILL SCORE

Nathan Horton.

He also is a +15 all time against the Pens. A lot of his work came for the Panthers.
