Remember when the Bruins had a rivalry with the Canucks? I sure do. Tonight's game was an absolute snooze-fest as the Bruins lost 4-2 and fell to 10-12-2 at TD Garden. There is no rivalry or hatred between these teams anymore, it felt like the Bruins were playing the Carolina Hurricanes tonight. It is impossible to gage this Bruins team. One night they look like they can beat any team in the league and the next night they look like they don't even feel like playing hockey.
On the positive side, David Krecji made his return to the Bruins tonight. He looked sluggish as hell, but that is to be expected. His importance to this team is unquestionable, however I thought his return would light a spark under the Bruins' collective asses but instead they played like they had spent the previous night pounding Bud heavies.
If the Boston Bruins want to accomplish anything this season, they need to figure out why they absolutely suck at TD Garden. You are supposed to have the advantage while playing at home, with the Bruins it is the exact opposite. People that reside in Boston live and die with their sports team. It is unbelievable to me that the Bruins constantly fail at home. Overall, it is just 1 game out of 82, but still it is a microcosm of this entire Bruins season. Can anybody honestly answer if this is a good team or not? I sure cant.
