Canucks At Bruins Preview: Demon-Warp Is Comin' Alive

New, comments
TWSS Boston

The Bruins beat Chicago 6-2 on Sunday night. They had lost 6 in a row prior to that, one of those games against our Canucks (we dominated them). Heads were gonna roll in Boston and still might. The blame game is ongoing. But was that victory over the Hawks a spark for a Bruins team that, to me, doesn't seem all that bad on paper? That was also a game they played without David Krejci, who will miss 4-6 weeks with a torn MCL. Bruins fans' reaction?

OK, so some of them feel that way. We don't really care about Boston problems. Hell, we just lost our #1 goalie for that same time frame. We have 8 regulars out!

The Canucks are playing so well without so many of those vets that the vets may as well stay on the injured list.
