-- 2 o'clock -- joining us right now on the AT&T hotline -- -- for NBC sports Pierre McGuire let me just say it off the top. Pierre it was tremendous to hang out watch Red Sox baseball with the on Tuesday and the way you interact with the fans the picture is the -- talk. The handshakes that you gave the NHL stop you talked about people loved it on Tuesday we thank you for hanging out for a little bit. Are you kidding me it was my pleasure thank you very much gentlemen -- to visit to buffalo look. Hello -- Tito. And a colleague Terry Francona -- and a half and do I do love that story we're talking about Burton in the tell us that tells us they're just trying to explain -- It's -- -- -- -- -- and a liar and she worked for the Red Sox and cheer myself and I believe there are determined woman bought in. Copies critical third down matter in the batting cage and Schimago Boise future trees and it obviously -- the -- can you grew up in Montreal but closer to a charge go figure. Anyway or down by the body agent. It -- she is except me. I didn't have my -- well spectacles -- he goes. People keep on getting the ball good -- the the other couple of bombs America -- that he saw my little boy after Yugoslav shall start the -- sorry but to repeal it or you thought he perjured at all. Our parents and their let's just. Let's let's get to the game because -- -- -- basketball they're surprised that maybe Chicago won game -- but I think a lot of people are surprised at the score six -- -- what did you see. I'm old school is a little bit shaky obviously the five goals and -- Scored I called. I'm not exactly Kurt Crawford street and should Barbara good real good Dodd chairman to -- a much or dollar short three different clips it showed why Chicago would better. In game number four number one military -- for aid official played a lot better than when you look at -- 770 shots in game four Boston 130 and Chicago won 38 I mean that's a huge improvement from game three game -- for Chicago so that helps them that's number one number two by and it will go along with -- catered waste a lot of volcanoes Asia they are important but if you want to get that first period that. -- puts on -- knocks him down that really create a lot of euphoria on the Chicago bench. And then the third thing panic is really important. Is that they were able to get to the net for the first time in the series really get to the net established honorary president. So three different things -- really helped Chicago in game number four but in particular the real -- so many possible particularly great. Are you mentioned that the net front presence for Chicago I thought that was part and parcel because. -- offenders from jump street I mean they they got into the play key thing company Pierre seemed like for the first time in this series. Said you know what screw it may give up some chance we got to be aggressive how much of that was what led to Chicago being successful offensively. Well I think a lot of it we talked about before they got the best and much gaining defense and National Hockey League. A lady didn't play a lot banking but you could see giant would be any pitch dark and keep those guys make a difference eventually cheaper it's a game winning goal. In this -- scorer from earlier playoffs and game seven against to try to -- Detrick senior put. Should car a little deeper for a charge -- admitted the final but. All that the percentage jump and it definitely helped a lot on everything that. Go to NC Chicago's too pleased with that that the words from our friend Tony Monte what did you see from Mary -- I don't think he's on a percent first two games at -- -- the best players on the ice and he was out there -- that level. Now -- what you think close to that I got to be watching these guys and you know watching and warm up and I reported a trend easy. We did in injury or -- He wouldn't nearly the player that I've -- merit also since he played over Slovakia watch him play junior for the Portland where -- His nickname he played junior with hello and goodbye he payload here and they gave Greg -- into -- -- that was his nickname in junior or Portland. -- -- -- they're really good skater in America black strips you try to heal but that was not Marion votes from most -- -- used to watching. It seemed like there are couple altercations there in that first period of felt like this game early. How little more edge to appear did you feel that between the two teams that that maybe it was Chicago forcing -- -- -- said. Little more animosities start this game on now Wednesday night. No question about -- but I think that the real resolve -- I think the other thing people meet and are more to get game for the series and it looks like the Caribbean cultures which all people but the -- would be. Then the animosity in the disk space start to really build up are expected five going to be real not these really really -- it. But the job Bruins think adjustment -- our cyber you know in those guys we trust but you know Quenneville does put that first line together with. We think debt due to slow them down -- -- a group effort overall. Can effort they've got a lot of good things against outline heavy -- showed how good a player is -- how good a player is back -- made a big difference physically. But Boston got guys -- can respond again. Anybody that thought this again before five games -- who is clearly wrong this is going to be a lot of heart. Series and mergers start right now I think the series that starred in game five pitcher they want an ultra -- policy that's been. That's installed or it will see the match is installed or. You mentioned the goaltenders being shaky yeah I gotta tell you at the big Crawford looks -- his team gets the win here but that glove hand in his -- beat that thing like drama and I. How how do you how do you help analogy of your Crawford you know that's where they wanna go you know it's -- the focus -- and it's been so slow in year. Can he do any thing if you're Crawford prepare for game five. Not just get mentally strong. Make sure that your position. Either single you've been throughout the season and just fight through it that's all he can do he. He can't do anything else -- we will make -- kind of an adjustment this time and -- is not gonna happen. You know -- we talked he talked about the the series had taken its hole and maybe go overtime game taken out of Chicago. I'm wondering another overtime game you got a couple days off here do you expect that maybe to still be different from either one of these teams. I think it's equal reduce Lou -- really look at that obviously the fatigue factor set in -- two days off. I know she couple practices in an original -- also notice. On the and I understand sort of -- practiced for Boston as he was going to be in the lineup which is good news from Boston an executive real good player. I can make a difference but. Yeah I think it's just rest. For both people help a lot description -- -- a couple of guys are a little bit nicked up clinical outpost international fumbles. What's so Bergen for Pete does go appeared you've told us not to go crazy on practice -- day day between games and -- coaches use lineups and of the closet just trying to. Give a different look there but if he does play for for dog events he's not only play in six regular season games. -- was not played in a playoff game. What C and four and is first game in terms of the physical nature of it vs what he saw. Overseas. -- that the physical ritualized will be a lot different but I've been watching him practice and watch them play a lot over extreme. The watches practices here can -- -- cut -- guys a lot of people. There have been a value that he practices he's -- really really good but the physical -- -- mansion obviously going to be a lot different I think the biggest thing for him is just funny game needs a big guy with tremendous -- and really good speed that's all he has -- focus -- -- turn pucks over -- they are out of place he hit some may play doesn't need to initiate. Even though it probably will want to just complex and enjoy the moment. -- -- -- the -- that the power play here the Blackhawks in Munich on a chip in a tart blow me sometimes just about confidence they chipped in is that something that. That could kind of have momentum in that into game five having confidence in your power play. I you know that's a weird one Lou the only recently because that Harper's little bit disjointed yet it was a good call because the simple fight -- -- -- a practical point you got people that -- that you catch them on a second chance opportunity. But -- Internet secrets if you think packed with Chris telling me to really good lately just wasn't able to get. Our cal in the fight concrete situation and it kind of broke down from Boston. With someone coming out of the box so. Yeah pictures and on the Chicago I think you're gonna you know when they're gonna say yeah -- content that actor mode goes there obviously -- -- put. And on the block certain dignity you know what we also that they -- So. You know that's gonna be in control for a full -- court correctly I don't know how much company yet out of cycle alone what you're really kick taxable. That you wanna see which group are pretty good to kick him but. I a couple of league issues a wanna get -- get shot here Elaine -- neo is the new coach -- the New York Rangers is that a good fit how different all the Rangers -- next year for Bruins fans here in the east. Very good fit I've worked -- -- not a lot I've gone a long time. I think he can do real good job they're economic they're younger players that are -- have more -- on the rank. You'll always be looking over their shoulders I would expect they're going to be more of an operative -- That when he was sitting in Dick coop for what the new general manager Mike Gillis and if -- didn't change should approach dark in terms of turning the players lose. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- You looking to keep his job so -- really adapted and he adapted well so he's more of an opt for two minor coached and he used to be which you get strength. For the Rangers could have a lot of really young dynamic forwards and he'll handle the media real well being albeit very very good -- and. Do you believe the report the toward Orel on the verge of taking his old job and Vancouver and is that a good fit that Coastr. He's he's in the -- Sort of can't even -- I think it's going to be a real interest in scenario there which John gets fired.

With the trade deadline looming, the next few days will be defined by how teams value prospects -- and their potential long-term contributions -- against big leaguers with established track records who can address immediate needs. Are prospects being valued accurately? Red Sox left-hander Andrew Miller -- once one of the two key chips that sent Miguel Cabrera from the Marlins to the Tigers -- assesses the matter.
A compelling case can be made that July 24, 2004, represents as significant a landmark as any date in modern Red Sox history. On that day, a memorable brawl between the Red Sox and Yankees served as a catalyst for an epic 10-9 walkoff victory for the Red Sox over New York and indomitable closer Mariano Rivera, a game cited by many members of the 2004 team as pivotal in Boston's first championship run in 86 years. Ian Browne, who covers the Red Sox for MLB.com and authored Idiots Revisited, discusses the landmark game.
