Bruins just lost to Tampa Bay, which means that they'll be nice and pissed off to come and face the Devils. Neither team plays again until facing each other on Thursday.
Sorry, I'd like to be optimistic, it's just... Boston, man. They're f'ing huge. Even watching them loose it's like "holy hell these guys are good". It's unreal really, especially in today's game.
Well, we're pretty good too. That's why they play the games my friend. And it's like Iginla said after they went up 4-0 on us after 1... in regards to preparation for the remaining 40 minutes: "We know they're going to be pissed off, so we have to be ready."
You'd be silly not to think that this team is pissed off about their last showing versus Boston. Riding 5 wins in our last 6, it's fair to have confidence.
There's no need for "conspiracies" with the Devils. It's not a conspiracy when there's a proven track record. Reminds me of the phrase "you're not paranoid if you're actually being watched".
That being said, I understand and appreciate what you're saying. My initial reaction was partiually driven by the fact that we're playing Boston tonight... I mean, Ottawa seems like a more obvious choice to have rested a guy against, sorta. Even better would have been an out of conference game. But, then I noticed that we've got back-to-back games against Florida and Pittsburgh Friday and Saturday before we go on the road, so... oh well. Hopefully he can play in one of those games this weekend (probably Pittsburgh).
Well, Travis Zajac's achilles tendon doesn't particularly care what day it is, what our strength of schedule is, or how important of a game it is. It just feels sore.

Hey, fvck you Kovy!! You're supposed to be terrible, why'd you go and score?
Decent 2nd period... still had a few ugly turnovers, Marty has bounced back nicely... Power play started off decent, wish there was no intermission to break it up. Hopefully they can nab one in the first 5 minutes of this period and make things exciting.
