2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs: Night 9 Open Thread

The Lightning are golfing. Will the Kings join them after tonight? A bit of an oddity tonight in the Stanley Cup Playoffs: unusually for the first round, no game is scheduled for the 7:00 hour.  That slot would have belonged to the Canadiens and Lightning, but with that series over you get an extra hour of talking heads instead before the night's business gets going. The Bruins and Red Wings lead off the night in Game 4 of their series (8:00, NBCSN, TSN) with the Bruins leading 2-1 after a dominating 3-0 shutout on Tuesday.  Tuukka Rask has let in just two goals on 82 shots in the...

The Bruins shut out the Red Wings at the Joe, Jordan Caron scored.... are these the signs of the coming apocalypse? The Bruins will take on the Red Wings again at Joe Louis Arena on Thursday at 8pm:   Detroit gave up two head-scratchers in the first period, and the Bruins kept their feet on the pedal. [TheBostonGlobe] Dougie Hamilton was presented the "old Time Hockey" jacket, Tuukka Rask was nearly hit by flying seafood, Matt Bartkowski and Kevan Miller are feeling much better, and Brad Marchand dodged a bullet.

Bruins Stifle Wings, Win 3-0 at The Joe

Bruins Stifle Wings, Win 3-0 at The Joe

First Bruins victory at Joe Louis Arena since 2007, and oh my it was convincing. After dropping the first game at home, the Bruins have had the look of a team on a mission the last two games. After a 4-1 win to save the split at TD Garden, Boston once again came out flying, this time on Detroit's turf, with first period goals from Dougie Hamilton and Jordan Caron(!) spoiling the Red Wings home coming. While Detroit again surged, much like in Game 2, the Bruins defense--teamwide, not just the blueliners--around Tuukka Rask and in the neutral zone shut down much of Detroit's speedy attack,...

Tuukka Rask wary of bouncy boards at Red Wings' Joe Louis Arena

Rask gave up six goals on 28 shots in a Red Wings' 6-1 win Nov. 27 at JLA, then failed to hold a 2-1 third-period lead the last time the teams played in Detroit, April 2, in a Wings' 3-2 comeback win, stopping just seven of nine shots he faced during the final period.

Buckley: Already behind an 8-ball

In a weird, twisted case of role reversal, the team with the best record was trying to steal a game last night.In its own building.In the first game of the playoffs.In the first game of the Stanley Cup playoffs.But sorry, Bruins fans, your No. 1-seeded team didn’t have enough time last night to retool themselves into plucky underdogs. The Detroit Red Wings claimed a 1-0 victory in a tense, thrilling Game 1 on Pavel Datsyuk’s shot under the glove of goaltender Tuukka Rask with 3:01 remaining in the third period.

Tuukka Rask takes blame

Tuukka Rask takes blame

Tuukka Rask was making no excuses.In a game that was well played on both sides — just with very, very few real scoring chances — Rask blamed himself for the one puck that found the back of a net.It was shot by Detroit star Pavel Datsyuk with 3:01 left in Game 1 of the Bruins-Red Wings first-rounder, a wrister from beyond the top of the left circle that gave the Wings a 1-0 victory and took away the B’s home-ice advantage.“It went through me,” said Rask. “So I think I should have it.”

Bruins drop playoff opener

Bruins drop playoff opener

Everyone knew this first-round series against the Detroit Red Wings was going to be tough. And Friday night at the Garden, it got even tougher when the Bruins dropped Game 1 in a taut, defensive battle, 1-0.Pavel Datsyuk scored with 3:01 left in regulation on a wrister from between the top of the circles, just moments after Jimmy Howard robbed Milan Lucic with a great glove save on a redirection of a Jarome Iginla pass. Datsyuk may have used Dougie Hamilton as a screen, but it went just under Tuukka Rask

Playoff Preview: Wings vs Bruins

We broke down the forwards earlier, now it's time to compare defense to defense and have a goalie fight... I mean check out Jimmy Howard and Tuukka Rask head-to-head. Defense Jeff also wrote a great post introdicing us to the Bruins defensemen. With Jonathan Ericsson unavaliable in this round, the Wing will be stuck with both Brian Lashoff and Jakub Kindle in the lineup. Niklas Kronwall - Brendan Smith Kyle Quincey - Danny DeKeyser Brian Lashoff - Jakub Kindl While the Bruins are able to have Torey Krug in their 3rd pairing. Zdeno Chara - Dougie Hamilton Johnny Boychuk - Matt...
