I want to like this kid, but I'm having a hard time so far. I didn't like his cheap head shot and thought he deserved every game of that suspension. I don't like this either. Walk away dude, it won't be the last time you get challenged by some drunk in a bar. I hope he's learning from all this. I want tough, clean hockey on the ice and a clean nose off the ice. Right now I don't know if this kid can deliver that.

Yes, but the PK was off in the playoffs too, unfortunately. It all went bad.

Mike Grier showed in game 5 why he is here. A veteran leading by example in the playoffs.

Gerbe-Ennis-Stafford looked nice together on that powerplay. Gerbe stays in for game 6, maybe he lines up with Ennis.

Mike Grier is made of steel.

They targeted Sobotka big time in game 5. They rode him hard all night.

I hate NHL officiating almost as much as I hate MSG. Both have been horrible.

"Need more attack." Amen, brother.

Good news for sure. He's been the team's best forward since he came back. Need the rest of the top 6 to step up. Need the bangers to bang and the grinders to grind. Need the leaders to lead. Need to see some passion and fire. These next couple of games will show what this team's made of.

No problems with that hit. It was shoulder on shoulder and it wasn't late. Boychuk chased the puck in and poked it a couple of times just before Myers laid the boom on him. The ice level angle showed a good view. I watched it a couple times when they replayed it for Carubba. It was clean and the ref saw it clearly. Boychuk looked right at the ref as he took a number. Good hit, good no call. I would be surprised if the league even commented on this, much less took any action against Myers.

That was just Myers saying "Excuse me, kind sir, I understand there is a hockey puck back here." Seriously though, the lower angle showed it better. The hit was more lateral than blindside and it was shoulder on shoulder. The Bruins are mad if they think anything will come of that from the league.

It will be interesting to see how physical this series gets. You know Kaleta will be charged up, which could lead to some nice powerplay opportunities.

@ roy: you have to embrace the DEPTH of this team. Instead, you are looking for superstar forwards. Like it or not (and clearly you don't), that's how this team is built - on depth.

I like the lines. If Ennis fits in on that top line - and I hope he does - I'd leave it be. Even if/when Hecht is ready. Hecht had an injured hand/finger last year and I think it was a big part of his horrid year. Why would you want to put an injured/recovering Hecht on the top line? I know that group had some success this year, but Hecht's hands were always the weak spot of the line anyway. Now he's dealing with a finger injury which won't help. I like Hecht for his defensive game. IMO, he will give the team the most value in the playoffs on a shutdown line.

I really like those line combinations at 10:30 pm. You could truly roll four lines right there. Great way to wear down a defensive team like the Bruins. I just don't know if Lindy will put Hecht on the 4th line.

I liked what was happening with Kennedy on Vanek's line before Vanek went down. Maybe the best part of Kennedy's game is his work behind the net. And one of the best in the NHL in front of the net is Vanek. It looked like a good fit. I'd keep the Vanek-Roy-Kennedy line together. Stafford's injury makes that an easier decision.

@ Obvious Truth: where are you getting this? Connolly plays a defensively responsible game. As chuck pointed out, he gets 1st unit PK minutes and he's also a playoff performer. Keep him on the bench? You must be a Bruins troll. And you're living in the past on the "injury prone" thing. How very 2008 of you. He's played about 100 straight games before this foot injury. Anyway, I'd love to see an Ennis-Connolly-Pominville line. Watch them create. I want Hecht on a solid shutdown line for the playoffs.
