All I've wanted for a week is to sit on my couch and watch hockey, and the day has finally arrived. LGW.

Let's hope the Bruins lose their cool, and take some stupid penalties. We just have to keep our cool on retaliations.

I still don't get why Babs wants Nyquist and Datsyuk together so bad.  You're putting your two most dynamic scorers on the same line against one of the better shutdown lines in hockey.  Pair this with the fact that they don't play particularly well together and it just doesn't make sense. 


I think we would want Gus and Pav to play as much as possible,so taking that into account I think the only way that would be accomplished is if they play on the same line; and the Kids line plays together that way those two lines will have the most minutes on the ice.

Not I said the fly.  When Nyquist is on a line with Dats he doesn't seem to produce.  Leave him with Legwand and Franzen and but Dats with Alfie and Abdelkader until Z gets back.  Nothing about Dats and Nyquist playing together thus far has been a success, the only reason everybody likes it is because they're mesmerized by the thought of the two together...regardless of the cold hard reality. 


They haven't- doesn't mean they won't, Pav wasn't anywhere near game shape when he came back which hasn't exactly been ideal for Gus. I still think they can find chemistry together.


The Abby Dats Alfie line, isn't something I"d be able to handle long term. Alfie was terrible towards the end and I hate when Abby plays with Pav.
