GAME THREAD: Bruins v. Capitals 3/29/2012 (self.BostonBruins)
submitted 1 year ago by AWKWARD_HANDS_GUY
Didn't see a thread, so I made one! Bruins have a chance to clinch a playoff spot with a win tonight (either regulation or overtime), while the capitals are playing for their playoff lives.
[–]EHandle 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
I passed up tickets for tonight's game because I couldn't afford them. Since I made a decision which is good for my wallet, I've decided that I can splurge on beer.
Cheers to happy drinking and great hockey.
[–]AWKWARD_HANDS_GUY[S] 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Cheers! Hope they deliver a W tonight.

please be okay, please be okay, please be okay......
[–]PocketRat 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I got here late. What happened?
[–]Hobo_jack 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
McQuaid took a bit of a shot to the head. They just said he won't be returning to the game.

Sabres fan here, I'm going to hate myself later for this but, GO BRUINS!!!
[–]Doesnt_Contribute 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Tonight, we are friends.
[–][deleted] 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
But only for tonight..
[–]lavery712 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
Starters in case anyone is wondering. BOS: Pouliot, Kelly, Rolston, Zanon, Corvo & Thomas. WSH: Hendricks, Beagle, Knuble, Hamrlik, Green & Vokoun. (via nhl bostons twitter)
Double crap. We've done well without him.
[–]EHandle 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Seidenberg is out with an infected cut from the LA game, I believe
[–]lavery712 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
You are correct
[–]RetraceClaire 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
I like Corvo for some reason...
Maybe because he's a good hockey player..
[–]EHandle 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
I'm betting that on the next rush we get an "Up and down the ice they go!"
I'm pretty sure someone has said this before, but I really like how well Zanon fell in with the Bruins. He plays exactly as a Bruin D should.
[–]AWKWARD_HANDS_GUY[S] 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Me too. He really fits in with this team. I'm happy to have him.
[–]infosnax 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Yeah, I agree. Seems to be consensus around here. He looks comfortable in the Black and Gold.
Unsatisfactory. Hope McQuaid is alright. I wanted happy drinking!
[–]Doesnt_Contribute 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
WITH A BUCK SIXTEEN TO GO!
Pretty stick handeling from seggy. Too bad nothing came from it. Love to see him stick handle the shit out of people.
[–]infosnax 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Good start to this one. They still look hungry.
Looch has been creating sick chances by just muscling down the boards and to the net.
[–]EHandle 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
We look good, and I think it's because everyone's been doing what they should. Hustle from everyone.
[–]Doesnt_Contribute 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I said that out loud.
[–][deleted] 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I volunteered at Perkins with NHS at my high school. This guy gave a tour. He's really nice and knowledgeable.
[–]jenobles1 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Holy shit, can't believe we just tied it!
Suck on that, Ovi!
[–]Doesnt_Contribute 4 points5 points6 points 1 year ago
I want to see us play with more some fight after Quaider went down.
[–]AbjectDogma 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
Sabres fan here...and it feels so dirty to say this but GO BRUINS. Also yes, that hit was gross.
[–]cinnabunz 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
14 strides before the hit. Who wants to bet he'll get off and Shanny will blame McQuaid?
[–]Mister9Incher 8 points9 points10 points 1 year ago
"McQuaid saw him coming and made no effort to get out of the way. Therefore, McQuaid will be suspended for 4 games"
[–]KingNothing13 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Plus an extra 2 for making Chimera miss the rest of this game.
[–]jcelledgo -8 points-7 points-6 points 1 year ago
it wasn't chimeras fault that McQuaid pivoted like an idiot, even your joke of an announcing team at NESN figured that out.
really surprised a bruin made such a stupid play with such a prevalence of players with high hockey IQ on that team.
[–]infosnax 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
I don't see intent on Chimera's part. Yes, he should have pulled up, but McQuaid turned at the last moment. Just a shitty situation. Hope Quaider's ok.
[–]2kwat 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago*
you don't see intent in Chimera targeting McQuaid from the nuetral zone? I realize as a D-man you shouldn't turn your back on a hit, but as the forechecker in that situation you have to anticipate that possibility somewhat- Chimera just fucking charged recklessly from outside the blueline with the sole intent of destroying McQuaid. I know I'm a little biased, but I think that right there is the biggest problem in the game now, absolutely no respect for other players and too many reckless/unnecessary hits in dangerous situations
edited cuz i cant spelll
I hate that McQuaid is hurt as much as anyone here, believe me. I know that 10 different people will interpret that hit 10 different ways, too. That being said, the way I see it is if McQuaid does not turn at the last minute, that is good shoulder on shoulder contact. As I said in my first post though, it is absolutely Chimera's responsibility to pull up there.
[–]2kwat 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
to me, that is where the intent comes in. with the speed Chimera comes into that hit, he doesn't give himself an opportunity to assess the situation and adjust the hit, only to crush McQuaid. Unfortunately for McQuaid, he tried to make a play once he got the puck and wound up getting his face pushed into the boards
Vokoun is done?
Apparently he aggravated the groin injury that has kept him from playing the last couple of weeks.
[–]NHGuy 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Back after 13 games off with a groin injury and after a save when the play was over he made his way to the bench favoring one side and shaking his head back and forth. Obviously reinjured it or aggravated it.
[–]EHandle 6 points7 points8 points 1 year ago
Got it. Missed him skating off. I was re-beering.
[–]NHGuy 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Upvote for re-beering!
[–]jacksaid 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Any gems so far? Thoughts on including quotes from The Bear and The Gang?
OK, come out hitting in the third.
I don't remember. By just getting 1 point out of this, did we clinch playoffs?
[–]erl 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
by itself, i didn't think so.
[–]PocketRat 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Seguin continues his shootout dominance.
not sure, but helluva shot by Seguin, and helluva stop by Thomas on Ovi
[–]Awright122 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
If there's no Shanaban for that shit I will denounce the NHL
[–]EHandle 5 points6 points7 points 1 year ago
You might want to start drafting your denouncement now
[–]jcelledgo -6 points-5 points-4 points 1 year ago
shit was clean, players should just skate looking down at the ice to be immune from all hits right?
[–]erl 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
FUCK! WHADIMISS? WHADIMISS?
[–]cinnabunz 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Pretty uneventful offensively for both teams. McQuaid took a nasty hit from behind. Forget who it was on the Caps, but guy got a Charging major and the game. McQuaid skated to the locker room with gauze over his head.
Edit Caps player was Chimera
thanks, 4 1/2 min of pp and all that's happened is lucic got hit. blech
[–]que_shiraz 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
I want to drink Chimera's blood from his skull.
[–]Indus7168 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
I had somewhat hoped Chimera wouldn't get a game misconduct just so that he'd have to stand up for himself against Thornton or someone else.
[–]jcelledgo -3 points-2 points-1 points 1 year ago
bruins fans outraged at this are hilarious
[–]que_shiraz 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Buddy I haven't seen anyone on this bruins team bolt from the neutral zone to decapitate another player. Sorry Brad Marchand pisses you off.
[–]hobbybob 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
Dirty, dirty hit.
[–]2kwat 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
that was brutal
pot calling the kettle black
pot has over 9000 coats of black paint on it already.
[–]hobbybob 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
WHAT THE FUCK
I'll blame Corvo, I don't know if he was on the ice.
I believe it was Ference's fault for that 2-on-1. You can still blame Corvo if you want though :P

You jinxed us! You did this!
[–]EHandle 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Know that I downvoted you in my mind because I'm unhappy
Oh snap indeed. Although the Caps will still get at least one point, so sorry about that.
"Stop not scoring" AND THEY SCORE!!!!
OH SHIT THAT JUST HAPPENED
[–]desne 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
now if only a Boston forward would score...
[–]seanymacmacmac 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
A Bruins third period comeback?!
Lets. Fuckin. Go.
That was a nasty backhander by Laich
[–]AWKWARD_HANDS_GUY[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Shit that was ugly....
[–]jcelledgo -4 points-3 points-2 points 1 year ago
beautiful game, great hit by chimera
[–]Indus7168 -1 points0 points1 point 1 year ago
What the hell Bruins? Chimera should be bloody on the ice for that hit. Way to step up for your teammate.
[–]fatloui -1 points0 points1 point 1 year ago
The reason no one went after Chimera is because every player knew that hit was clean.
[–]jcelledgo -2 points-1 points0 points 1 year ago
"Thomas rushed to area hospital for surgery after his ankles were shattered in a shootout loss to the capitals"
[–]jcelledgo -10 points-9 points-8 points 1 year ago
you guys didn't whip out your patented "flopper" chant for quaider? disappointing
[–]boymayor 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago
Why the fuck are you even here, dude?
[–]MooseSteets 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I dunno, but this guy has obviously been butthurt by the Bruins somehow. Wouldn't be the first, wont be the last. But, seems to be a Caps fan so you cant expect him to know much about hockey.
[–]SlappaDaBass 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
I came from r/caps to tell you guys GG. Not all Caps fans are incompetent assholes and I apologize on behalf of all Cap fans out there.
player was injured on the ice in boston and the crowd didn't chant flopper in order to motivate him to get up and stop being a pussy, it was a conundrum to me.
[–]gimpbully 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
You sounds like a Habs fan. Enjoy the off-season.
