Having just finished watching the game, here are some of my thoughts:
- When was the last time Chara standing in front of an opposing goalie resulted in a Bruins' goal? He seems to have better luck blocking Rask's view in my opinion.
- Is there a cooler last name than Abdelkader?
- I'd like to see more Marchand and less Lucic on powerplays.
- Speaking of Lucic, did you know he had 71 giveaways last season? That was 20 more than Marchand. When it comes to takeaways, Marchand had 46 (second to Bergeron's 49).
- Rask is looking sharp already (saved 22 of 24 shots, very few of which were easy).
