Panthers Bite Bruins

I'll admit I saw the majority of the game, however there were a couple of people over, making things slightly hazy the morning after. The Bruins and Panthers both played extremely hard, there was no lack of effort or hustle from either team.

Tomas Vokoun and the Panthers' penalty kill was beyond outstanding, he deserved his shutout just as well as Boston deserved to score four or five goals. Radek Dvorak had the game winner with a great shorthanded goal, going in on Thomas alone and lifting the puck high over the glove.

Why was Patrice Bergeron back on the point on the top powerplay unit? There had been great success see he had been moved to the wing of the second unit and now we're back up at the point. Does it coincide with the B's struggles last night? No, but I'd like to assume it did, considering I kvetched about him being there at length a little more than a week ago.

It has now been eight games since a Bruins player received a major for fighting. Where's the spirit boys? Drop those gloves.

That's all for now, this afternoon's contest in Tampa Bay will be blogged live starting around 5:00pm. Stay tuned!
