The Bruins haven't scored in the last 132:58 of ice time, despite coming close a couple times last night in the first. Osgood and the post managed to save near-goals by the Bruins, and then Datsyuk set up a Holmstrom and Zetterberg goal.
The Bruins have to get their shit together, and hit the net. They haven't scored on the Powerplay since Derek Morris bombed one in a long time ago, and they're not able to get inside the slot area at all. It's hard to score when every shot has to go through 3-7 guys before even getting to the goalie. Look at the great chances Sturm had, where he was right at the net and got the puck. There's something for putting a guy in front to tip in goals, but there's really no substitute for close-up, in-the-slot shots. The Bruins need to do that. Sobotka on the powerplay didn't result in a goal, but at this point - why the hell not?

Phil Kessel played last night, got laid out, didn't score but had 10 shots. Down Goes Brown talks about that.
If there's anyone left on the bandwagon, hang tight. With a lighter load, it will go faster and be bumpier. Keep the noise level to a maximum. Same seats, everyone!
