Another chapter to the Bruins-Canadiens rivalry is about to be written, and if the B’s can skate past the Habs, Joe Haggerty believes the Bruins won’t face a tougher opponent until the Stanley Cup Finals.
Haggs joined T&R Wednesday to analyze the Bruins-Red Wings Game 3 from last night, including the embellishment of Brad Marchand and the invisibility of the Bruins’ first line so far in the series.
Red Wings goalie Jimmy Howard was great in Game 1 and awful in Game 2, so which performance is more in line with who he is as a player? Both, according to CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty.
The Bruins have largely been a consistent team over the course of the 2013-14 season, but there’s been intermittent points throughout the year where they’ve struggled to close out games, and it’s been happening more and more as of late — including twice already this week.
With seven games left to go in the regular season the NHL playoff race is still far from over, but if the season ended today the Bruins would draw the Columbus Blue Jackets in the first round — which is exactly what Joe Haggerty of CSNNE is hoping for.
The Bruins are on top of the Eastern Conference and poised for another deep playoff run, all which wouldn’t be possible without the outstanding goaltending from Tuukka Rask this season.
CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty and Rich discussed the streaking Boston Bruins and whether or not they’re peaking too early, and if there’s even such a thing.
CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty would’ve liked to have seen the Bruins do a little more at the deadline than acquiring Andrej Meszaros and some nobody off waivers.
CSNNE’s Joe Haggerty explains why and how Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Ray Shero is always making deadline deals, and if the Bruins’ interest in Ryan Kesler is legit or not.
Some of the blame falls on Dan Bylsma, but Haggs wasn’t buying into team USA from the start because of the players they didn’t bring to Sochi.
