The Bruins powerplay is in need of some help. They went 1-5 on it thanks to Patrice Bergeron. They also had great changes on a 3 on 5, which killed the Bruins last time these two teams met. No goals and barley any shots. Tyler Seguin should’ve been out there. Yeah, guess how much ice time he got? None. Surprised, you should be. Okay maybe he hasnt been playing like the player we know he is, but I mean he needs a chance. Mainly, there was so much room out there on the PP. Being over seas might have hurt him, but not in this situation. Over in the Swiss league there is a lot less contact than the NHL and Seguin was scoring like a goal per game. Yep. He had room and was scoring like crazy. That was the time Julien needed to put him out. He is your best offensive player. Put him out there.
Ryan Miller played a solid game but im tired of hearing how he kept the game tied and blah blah blah. Dont get me wrong if the Sabres didnt have him in net, they would be in trouble. Their defense is not good at all. Give Khudobin some credit. He didnt face as tough shots but I still dont need to hear howMiller is amazing and a Venezia winer.
Vanek was nothing last night. The “bruins killer”. He had one shot in 15:23 minutes of ice time.
Overall I think the bruins played a good game against Buffalo, but there are still lots to improve on. Brad Marchand came out from being injured the last game to putting the Bruins on the board first, followed by a powerplay goal from Patrice Bergeron and an empty netter from Milan Lucic.
