Live Bruins Blog….Bruins vs. Buffalo 3.Jan.2009

Chest bump
Well, it's not the same – but it'll do. I'm going to try to do some live blogging about today's game. The Bruins take on Buffalo and the last time they played Buffalo – the B's lost(I believe that was the game they played in Buffalo the night before Thanksgiving). The Sabres have more points against the Bruins than any other team in the Eastern Conference.

Congrats to Tim Thomas & Manny Fernandez for being picked as NHL Stars of the Month. I'm actually really impressed that they both got it. Best move by the NHL in a long time. The B's went 12-1 in December and looking to continue their reign thru 2009.

David Krejci is going into today's game with a 10 game point streak. PJ Axelsson is no longer the team's whipping boy and producing on the ice. Axellson's production has moved him up to the first line and pushed Lucic back to the third with Stephane Yelle and Chuck Kobasew.

First Period

16:40 Matt Ellis scored after the Bruins gave up the puck behind their own goal for a second time this game. Just because they give up the first goal – doesn't mean anything!

15:13 Buffalo is on the power play and they've had a lot of success when playing a man up.

14:52 Thomas Vaneck scores during the PP….2-0 Buffalo.

14:43 The B's are just playing sloppy and they're not in this game.

11:12 Milan Lucic just slammed Derek Roy into the boards. The fans are getting behind them, but they need to connect on the ice. None of their passes seem to work.

9:14 Maybe the station identification worked. But Savard to Kessel connected and the B's are with in one! 2-1

8:56 Stephane Yelle is in the box, hopefully the Sabres don't make the most of being a man up.

8:22 Derek Roy decided it would be a good idea to take on Chara, who's only a foot taller than him. Fail.

7:42 Blake Wheeler fresh of the benc, got a great steal and they're going to play 4 on 4 for the next 47 seconds.

3:14 Interference call on both Boston & Buffalo – Vaneck & Thorton are both in the box….4 on 4 for the next two mins.

0:00 Well, the B's started to wake up as the period went on and Roy & Kobasew just had some words. The B's are on their way to their locker room…..Buffalo is up 2-1!

Second Period

16:56 Mark Elllis strikes again and gets an unassited goal.

15:29 PP for Buffalo, they're 1-2 today….33% of their goals come during the pp.

13:11 Vaneck failed on the break away and couldn't figure out when and where he was going to shot the puck.

10:00 SHAWN THORNTON JUST CAME UP BIG! Martin St. Pierre assisted and Thornton makes it's 3-2 in the second.

6:54 Maybe being named a star has gone to his head – but Thomas's sloppy work in goal today gave Buffalo a two goal game lead. Jason Pominville just made it 4-2.

1:52 I don't know what's going on today – but they're(The Bruins) are completely out of it.

0:00 The B's have come back, but they're playing sloppy today and they're 14 home game win streak could very likely end today.


Let's see if the B's can pull this off….Aaron Ward is out….again. Verteran defenseman is out again with another lower body injury. Homeboy can't get a break.

10:14 Andrej Sekera is down….game stopped.

7:22 Well, that was a bonehead move on Lucic….Let me pass the puck and clear the blueline, oh wait, there's NO ONE THERE!

1:22 Chara just laid out Tallidner….Buffalo wants this win more.

B's haven't lost here since October 23rd. Boo.

Buffalo just put an end to the B's 10 game winning streak and their 14 home game winning streak.
