Comments from the Press Box – Bruins -Isles

By Gary Harding

Got here the start of the game So I do not have the luxury about commenting on the pre-game stuff.

What I have seen.

1.  Defensive zone has been sloppy.  First passes out of the zone have not only been weak, but if Boston was quick to capitalize, it would have been a 4-0 score in the second, as opposed to 1-0.

2.  For someone who was injured days before this game, Blake Comeau has looked well.  His job on the kills in the first period were superb.

3.  Chara is getting booed in the building like a Boston player at Yankee Stadium would be.

4.  Speaking of the Boston D, I remarked on Twitter – that they looked like the Berlin Wall, before Reagan had it taken down.   It is easy to see why the B’s are at the top of the conference.

5.  PA Parenteau’s big knock is that he is a one zone player.  Unfortunately, he is showing that tonight on a larger scale.

6.  Zenon Konopka must have studied some of Kyle Okposo’s moves.  If only he was able to finish it in this level.

Unfortunately – my battery is dying quickly and I did not bring my power cord.  So I will be blogging more after the game either tonight or tomorrow.

Hopefully, the Isles can get their game together, and get the two points needed.
