Game 6 Projected Lines: Senators at Bruins

What might the changes be this time around? No pregame skate today, so here’s my armchair coach lineup. All may be lost when puck drops; check SCoC Twitter near game time for updates. Forwards: Brad Marchand - Patrice Bergeron - David Pastrnak Drew Stafford - David Backes - Tim Schaller Sean Kuraly - Riley Nash - Noel Acciari Matt Beleskey - Dominic Moore - Frank Vatrano We’re assuming that David Krejci and Ryan Spooner won’t return. Could Jimmy Hayes slot in instead of Beleskey? We’ll just have to wait and see.DO NOT SCREW WITH THIS FIRST LINE, BRUCE. Defense: Zdeno Chara - Charlie...

Do you make some lineup changes to save your season?

Do you make some lineup changes to save your season?

Playing with 1.5 functioning lines is...not great. Here we are again: a true “must-win” game. The Bruins’ track record in games like this hasn’t been great in the past few years, and their effort on Wednesday night did little to inspire confidence in a big comeback. The main issue last night was that the Bruins didn’t generate a ton in terms of quality scoring opportunities, as lines one through four struggled to get real high-quality looks. They had maybe four or five good chances; the two Brad Marchand breakaways come to mind, as does the bouncing loose puck in the final...

Anderson shuts out Bruins, Senators take 3-1 series lead

Anderson shuts out Bruins, Senators take 3-1 series lead

The Bruins are now on the brink of elimination Everyone had been saying before the game that the Ottawa Senators had staked a 2-1 series lead despite Craig Anderson. Not that Andy had been bad per se, but an .898 save percentage wasn’t up to his season standard. Safe to say he won this one for Ottawa. The first period saw the Senators start poorly. It wasn’t so much that they were flat, but that they seemed to think they were the worse team. They were content to let the Bruins lead the attack, and would use their speed to counter-attack when chances arose. That led to Brad Marchand...

Not quite Hasek killing a breakaway, but still pretty cool.

With stars struggling or injured, Bruins need secondary scorers to come through with some production

Bruins center David Krejci, who finished the year third among B’s skaters in both goals and points, is not playing at anything close to 100 percent. Top-line winger Brad Marchand, who scored a team-high 39 goals this season and produced above a point-per-game pace for the first time in his career, has been bottled up […]

Bruins need Brad Marchand to battle through scoring frustrations

Bruins winger Brad Marchand’s emergence in the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs took just about everybody by surprise. But that was six years and 171 goals ago, and now, Marchand is a marked man. Teams target him in more ways than one, too. Not only do they try to keep the 5-foot-9 winger off the scoresheet, […]

The Hard Match: Trying to Shut Down the Top Line

The Hard Match: Trying to Shut Down the Top Line

Boucher hard matched a 5 man unit against the Bruins top line - should he keep doing it? The Bruins line of Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak could barely get away from the full five man unit of Tom Pyatt, Jean-Gabriel Pageau, Mike Hoffman, Cody Ceci and Dion Phaneuf. Of 55 events (not just shot attempts, but everything - faceoffs, whistles, hits, etc) that the Boston trio were on the ice for, 39 of them were against those five players. Another nine (none shot attempts for Boston) were with four of those five players on the ice. There were only two events - a hit and a...
