Apr 23, 2014|

We discuss the Bruins win to take a 2-1 lead in Detroit, and how Brad Marchand is once again (for better or worse) making his presence felt in a series. Hey, he may be a rat, but he's OUR rat.

Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Well we were in the building together last night because is Steve and acting TC were -- the Red Sox. I was working with Billy Jaffe as we were doing the Bruins game last night Bruins in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena. Shut out the Detroit Red Wings three to nothing -- get the sense as you watch as I do. That the red wings are more than little frustrated right now with how the Bruins just keep calm and -- them and come and asked them. And when they do finally get through the layers of defense and get to the goal took -- just says no not now. Delegates frustrates and I think it's just. To spit the bit in the moment. I -- you think about that second goal last nine and that's not just if that the cliche is oh yeah they're so young you're so inexperienced. Of course -- things those things are gonna happen veteran guys leaving the ice. For entire team afterwards at intermission. -- we're going. They left the irons and the Bruins are there taking advantage of it in my man Mike Babcock and his poetry. The -- Mike Babcock after the game he had a right so we get into goals it's been -- and where you want to. We gave them too. And you just can't do that and any you know play a series and expect to compete against that that the best. -- you know it's funny because in the first game between these two teams Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal of the game. And their Bruins fans were calling it a soft goal to -- gave up -- soft goal I didn't see it notes it I thought it was a great shot by a great player. That first goal last night Doug Hamilton goal I've heard red wings fans criticized that as being soft goal. Billy Jaffe said it on our on our intermission post game shows and I agree with him with us tonight. He had about that much room in the top corner depict any picked it put it right under the bar. It was a great shot by a break -- but don't you would you agree it was a defensive break offensively -- -- but I'm not blaming Jimmy Howard for that goal which is what I've heard coming out of Detroit the last eighteen now. As you heard all the baseball fans cause soft goal because if you are reduced catch it -- glove side and a radio right up a little why you got it you know. I think that what I'm here and now out of the series of people sand will Detroit ever scored another goal I mean it's been so tough form but at the same time when you look at last night's game. Without the two mistake goals and in the empty netter at the end which really didn't matter. If you. You're looking at another really hard fought game last night and end up being in Canada and easy victory because of those two mistakes they made a line -- that ended up. The in you know semi easy goals were scored. You don't have value maybe talking about a completely different game I don't really agree with these people out of their -- -- Detroit will never score they they're they're gonna fold up and go away now this is not gonna happen for them but those pretty evenly matched games. Save that this. The mistakes and try to go those of people in Detroit I mean yeah if you listen a -- -- earlier today they they they took a few minutes. And they get had some sound from Detroit radio. So people were calling and people are texting and think it's. It's done it's over they're not as good as the Bruins -- not let's talk about the draft now. Let's talk about something else because the red wings just don't have it let's move on to next year. I public think yeah you're right it could've been could've been a closer game but those mistakes. -- mistakes like that. In a playoff game he'll leave it tells you might well what the mentality of the team. Even their -- Hussein didn't have the proper pulse. On the team I should've known that they are gonna respond like this after winning a game in Boston it sounds like. The lead after three games may be changes if this series has won more games that and it. It sounds like after three games. -- the Detroit Red Wings were just happy to be there happy to get that victory. After game the other that's their that's their high water. The other big controversy about putting up my quotation fingers here the other big story out of last night's game was the embellishment of Brad martian. And now how that's being portrayed open Detroit and here as well march and in the dressing room after the game was asked by one of the members of the media. He said you know people on Twitter questioning whether or not you you know you're embellished the caller not. And martian had a great response he -- that's why -- on Twitter and I'm in the national hockey. The -- embellish the call absolutely positively in my mind yet. Did -- get fouled. Absolutely positively. It was called a tripping minor should've been called a tripping minor -- stayed down a few seconds longer than he should have. Maybe. Was at the same -- He got tripped. He got knocked down and I'll say this. He's lucky in this regard he got his leg up in the year because if he's -- had been on the ice there's a real good chance it has knee blown out on that wreck. Well I think what what march he's a guy who pushes you pushes the envelope at all times. Probably. 01 of the least like players and the National Hockey League -- like PT PK IC about. I don't think either what what personal PK is a -- only PK is a dirty player. Mark and I agree with the I think that's that's fair marching and is more to be dirty player than PK but he is not a diaper even though he pushes him. He was earlier in his career he was a diver he was a and I know for a fact that he got called in and flowed and the rest of the Bruins basically said we don't do that leap here. Other teams do that we don't do -- -- -- now they want him to play out on the edge you're right that does that open up the same as diving. And he cleaned up the diving act awhile ago. Now he got trip last night I got absolutely and but what I don't know is how orderly asked them. How bad was he hurt because he didn't get up right away like I did -- awkwardly but I don't think he was especially hurt necessarily look. Stayed on the last few more minutes maybe they given the five minute -- major which he had seen the night before. Called against Matt -- by the way his suspension is coming down this afternoon by Matt -- against Tyson -- Andy maybe he's taken in May they give -- five minute major. And this is why these shows are so much fun last night all the guys that are deal with the Bruins -- stuff. It's a start to kind of figure out the intricacies of the game because. When I saw the play happened and you know I've been on skates like twice in my life so -- I'm clueless of how you would react but it seems like everyone -- that well. You know maybe they were -- -- and they were after it seems to me that was a play that was going to be a really legal hard hit. At center ice there and -- and kind of got out of the way of it and because of it almost caught a neat. But if I'm the defending player in that in that case I sent myself flop on whitening my stance. For the point of impact -- I think how many hits you and that if you sidestep -- might -- out there exposed as probably gonna hit yours. It's what makes this game so brutal I mean it's just eat you can get her -- like that you're you're need to be blown I don't think there was anything intentional about the all right. I do think there are lucky he didn't wanna get by -- and you do what you have to do so he doesn't get by he stock is like any tripped him. It was not a major penalty -- you know he didn't -- lot marsh and -- thankfully because marsh and -- was off the ice it's what saved him on that play. But the idea that he dole is ridiculous. He's got tripped a -- embellish it trying to draw more than two minutes probably maybe I. Here's a question for you guys you look at the Bruins and you look at Tuukka Rask. Through the series aren't so we get the shot out you get shut out last night gives up a goal in the first two games -- -- in three games has given up two goals. -- one of those goals as you said dale and I'm with you and -- outstanding. Outstanding goal. From from Powell got to end the the setup to the goal hit the that's stick work. To get to the goal was amazing and it's all right -- to put on a clinic there. But you'll look at took arrest not him all the credit in the world but the -- the way they play one more teams. Don't copy it and commit to copy all leaks are copycat police and National Hockey League is to you look at quote system. Like a difficult system -- teach. What are essentially he's asking is. Everybody help out on defense and create layers of defense our defensemen are obviously I'll have to be defensive defenseman but. Everybody is gonna have to be a two way player. The teams copy of it I think they'd like to but the problem or else it's not fun to do it's not on the -- it what was of Rwanda wants at all. You know it's like in the NBA stars what is everybody wanted to that -- score and and then. You know dockets KG and Paul and ray in here in the instilled that that defensive ethnic. And and they'd buy into it and the stars buy into it -- the other guys have to buy into what. That's what happened here with -- in the Bruins had to get the right guys who bought into it and the guys who haven't bought into what. Haven't shipped out at -- I mean really are great players castles Gortat Tyler Sagan. Our Mary jogger who you know played here at the end of last year played this year for New Jersey. At a very good year for them he didn't buy into it either if you don't buy into it if you don't do it. I'd love to know old man hockey are yarder loved that guy so you -- you don't think there are enough guys in the league. Who would who would buy into it and if you say look at look at what the Bruins have done. -- the Bruins -- -- Stanley Cup playing the system. That they went to another Stanley Cup final loss in six games. This year presidents' trophy. It looking like -- they're there are the favorites at at the very least to advance to the next round and probably beyond that. If you look at that track record could you get somebody to buying and based on the results. Think a lot of people -- and it's more than that to mean you're also talking about guys -- extra layer of toughness. And in we talked about before a lot of guys that wanna put the puck in the back -- the -- are also guys that are gonna go into the corner for either. You know that they want to score and they a lot of the house of unprotected I'll be over here when you get pock yeah exactly yeah when you gotta make sure you get it to me -- you know I'm a federal help you get it -- -- that that extra layer of toughness. -- for -- means to have guys who run out there and and not be afraid to go into the corner. Does not that many guys out there you put a pretty good group together and talk about the -- this just keep common Tracy -- that he's come and. -- right Steve bass while you're up in just watch him. It is very able to. We wish solitary would do last year different you understand that this team I think it's better than last Tuesday. So what they were able to do for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Any any surprisingly short here speaking of swallowing a -- -- what they're doing to Detroit right now it Detroit it is true for Detroit to win the series it's very simple you talk about that you all you want. They are gonna Jimmy Howard is just gonna happen to he's gonna have to be beyond -- could that be to -- plus plus. Forced into it always team wins is if it Jimmy Howard doesn't talk up. And a -- don't win. The problem is because of the injuries because of of these retirements the youth on their blue line we talked about this before Michael. They're so young -- much less experienced than the Bruins are back on the Blue Line. And they look. The Bruins when they get set up in the offensive end. And there in the red wings are not big and strong necessarily. And in -- Ericsson their biggest strongest defenseman is playing right now. The Bruins just -- up I mean after awhile they Wear you down physically. Gone back to Steve's point about how relentless they are and after -- -- like no god not more. You do you use a break she will -- -- you know you just don't you just in its you're not on top your game anymore you just can't keep. You see it keep going forward on a team. That's just crossing you at every turn -- getting hits every time I see they're big they're gonna do it takes they get the puck back. You know it's a -- it's been so much fun to watch just the relentless pressure that they put on. They are gonna play game four tomorrow night IE I'm not going to be a bit surprised if you see more you you've now seen two games in a row member Michael asked the question on Monday. Is is the Bruins team the one you soft Friday night of the one you saw Sunday. Now that you've seen -- two games in a row is a pretty obvious which Bruins team which is the real Bruins team you've seen both Sunday and now on Tuesday. You know that that in your face grind you down for -- hit hard good goaltending good team defense. We actually showed one of the packages last night a couple of times when they did get running around Detroit's -- hockey team they're -- get they're gonna get chances. The Bruins are so call. That's okay all right we can do this week you know well back Jack will bust are -- ends we'll get back and help out would give you more layers you might get by that temperature not gonna get by this guy. And if you don't get by this guy by the way that guy in the goal is really real -- Don't get it -- to Detroit another thing fellas I don't understand why Detroit so bad in this series so far three games and when the so bad the power play in last night. It was it was just they they couldn't do it was clear they couldn't do what they wanted to do didn't have really a good shot all night and -- play. And they haven't had they're now all for nine had a good shot in the series that a power no you're exactly right and I'm shocked by that you look at their personality should be a lot better than what they weren't the during the regular season Michael. -- and that was one of the things we talked about for the series started. The -- the sack bright and very middle of the pack bruins' power play was third the National Hockey League regular season. I and I don't of the numbers from the I think Detroit -- like eighteenth. Bruins were eight best on the penalty kill. Red wings you know were again middle of the pack the Bruins are just better when their special teams than the red wings and it's shown. You know has gone back to your original point to when you said if if Jimmy Howard. All the twos to the -- and stands on its head for awhile. Have they're still gonna have to score almost doesn't matter what he does back there -- can set him down for as long as you want peace you have to put the puck in the net yourself. I saw someone I can't remember who said it would the average that their scoring right now it's like less than three quarters of a goal a game any wins. Probably not very often let's get to the call 6177797937. Is the telephone number. -- Belcher town Europe first on Sports Radio dale and -- Hey guys as -- go on and that. -- You're incompetent and so they yeah otherwise this film like this is you know we've we've got there that -- -- -- created order that I truly believe but. I'll let the lions I think based on the last couple years or ground. I have real concerns about the Bruins one stage yeah like they're facing an inferior opponent I think they -- they -- these. Well what -- base that on you got it I don't -- Matt Matt I don't go down not code. But. Matt Matt Matt is Matt why do you say the Bruins think that what they said or done that that indicates that -- -- even the last three years against inferior opponent get up and take to put up yet. But nothing that we this year I know they're better prepared this year -- -- -- lecture for sure but I think this team. That he tried in Barre and the short and they may believe that they almost choked up. I just I disagree with I don't think so -- not I don't think they're offensively -- better than maple -- last year. We know it. And still looked differently about that and added I think there is gonna come out a little little embarrassed after the flat in the got a lot of young guys that they were just. A little nervous in the home crowd -- Babcock and have them ready to go out and be really really good test to see how the Bruins respond and like you alliances I think. The couple out of the -- to it doesn't make that same in the third period. It's a very different game so you know we marketing and all the country today just just how -- Yeah I don't know that it was bounces of the pocket mean obviously with some serious mistakes on Detroit's side with the line stages stuff but. Having said that if you don't have those mistakes it could have been a much better much closer game as far as -- Detroit -- As -- -- so I think Matt does bring up but it just two point on this level here. We need to about the -- the last the last few years the first round seven game series in last year -- are great example. Duke and you can really make a statement. Others into yourselves. If you're up on Detroit your better team better team in Detroit. And you in this thing bam bam -- five game series simulator bring on Montreal Montreal played before we played five were -- ago. Bet that sets a tone I think that is more important for the Bruins than it is for. For fans like custom fans like -- were looking for a sign that they mean business. The Bruins give up home ice advantage in game one you're not gonna play game three in Detroit. But crowd is crazy the buildings -- and even your guide Mike Babcock says you know we needed to play off the emotion of the building in the crowd. -- and -- and outshot them eleven to four in the first period and never took their foot off the gas Detroit had no way answers for what the Bruins were doing. Wouldn't you think now mats thinks this is gonna happen tomorrow night the bat cracks gonna happen ready that they're gonna come out flying when you thought that would happen last. Well what happens but isn't isn't isn't tomorrow night the night where you you look at it Babcock. Basically confessed to every crime and inhumanity but at last night I think you're gonna get -- -- a veteran culture got to do better. I didn't have a pulse of the team so he's telling the world. We got to be better. I gotta be better you -- -- in game four this season on the line because we have to -- may have to -- I don't I don't know elimination game went tomorrow and Ackerman you're not gonna come back 31 from the C 31 from the Bruins. It is not happening sorry. Still I think the problem with the problem are well the problem is I don't think they're capable. Yes I know they they are not as good as the Bruins in any aspect of the game. So what are asking them to do was play above their heads and you're asking for the Bruins to play below their average which is what you gotten game one. Happening game one and the Bruins set off crap when not to mess. Up on the Detroit for me and I stated that Dale Arnold I say when I'm asking them to do. Is what they did in the regular season this year and the year out war where they played the Bruins to. Pretty much a stalemate. With the exception of the one normalcy to enter in the National Anthem blue line knows what the -- do with all the supplies that they don't get the -- of the united so it was nasty and won a couple of the guys swing in -- and his. And I'm not so high right now I had that would -- -- -- -- and I definitely don't school that'd be announced on on the -- and yet to take it home half hour. Yet we just -- literally years only anyway. And I don't get any goal I don't knock on now I got it like this thing out a year Dominick on the cell funnier next on Sports Radio Dele Ali. I dominance of dollar on here. I don't I don't want Jamaica to comment your pocket or earlier wrap our shock. The first commented that I won't be like to hear a lot of I've seen. -- -- recruit fighters -- just. Great job players passed -- it like that they're they're they've recruiters are pretty much at all even if they've played they've never really played this thing out there. And the outcome I was with you -- The guy has immense talent but I just think. Behind -- being behind the play. You know -- -- I think he's a bit 130. Maybe not you know and think out there are gone well. I don't know I think I'd do I'd do -- I think the guys away now. Let -- -- particularly if it's funny because he has a very talented guy you think. He didn't have to lawless up and in the -- -- for march and it was a great score. In all aspects of his game won't be appreciated as long as he continues to agitate the -- -- but we were saying earlier on a call if what if martians play. -- for someone else but I look I you know so far we've we've had. Colors be legitimate -- the sort of like. And and only from wanna put a stigma of it was like. You know Barry Bonds played in in in San Francisco and everyone knew he was tool -- he was doing it on hated it all around the world except for -- -- offense -- schools OK if that that was your guy. I'd like the fact that Bruin fans have called and said and we recognize -- sounds kind of thirty people say you're out there and you'd hate them way worse he played for someone else. But he's our -- And so you recognize the kind of guy he -- but it's like. It's okay -- I think it is it is not going to be a few of those I don't think the case of bonds a dirty player at all he is a diver now there's two different things here. You know if if cycle if you're right in -- marsh and the bit of a dirty player he's not a -- That was something cloud -- really drilled Indians we don't do that crap don't pull lets stuff. And -- didn't dive last night. After he get tripped he thought well maybe if I -- here for implementing this will be five is that it too which is a good thing for my team he didn't dive. There's a difference still bond as a diver not dirty marsh and is a little bit dirty but not a diver. Question of which laundry there -- through -- 6177797937. -- telephone number. It's dale and Holley and cycle -- broadcasting live from Fenway Park here on Sports Radio WE yeah. It did end up behind him to try to stop. Circle -- here right now. -- this expression on his base. Exhibit to he's saying he just walked speaks with -- -- -- I think that would link gets little extended them looked compliant on one side no question about it. Trying to make contact with his -- it's -- -- ball. What my Twitter followers Jeffs says if Brett doesn't dive. How do you explain -- watching the wrong legacies rolling on the ice I just said he embellished this is not the same thing yet. Diving diving means there was no infraction. He just flopped CP case to bunt in an attempt to drop a call peak. Clearly got tripped. Yeah by Brendan Smith that was clear. Don't know don't make her once he had the guys but there are acting involved yes and no actually it. -- acting did not involve the trip the trip happened then after that was some award winning acting. Here's the other they understand about like you know that whole play and how dangerous it can be. And whether or not you stick your leg out candidate to try to stop them or your bracing yourself for the impact. It is defined as Smith wasn't. The -- and CF precedent if if I'm if I'm Smith. And embracing myself for the impact because I think comedy just hit them head on and he -- sidesteps the united stick my knee out to try to stop them anyway I can't. Isn't my -- every bit as is vulnerable as he used. And why does the Smart thing to do. In the exact same way in this -- happened with Matt Cooke in the hit on Tyson barrier earlier this week and Matt -- going to be suspended today. I've heard anywhere from from ten to twelve to the rest of the playoffs who. The difference here is -- might be the president plans could be Tyson berries like it's on the ice the McCain going right and Matt cooks like is -- Extended but it off the dice. So he's gonna hit me on me it blew out Tyson very easily but it's not gonna blow up Matt -- sneak. Because his knee is not on the ice they're that's what the differences -- -- once it US I mean if you're getting taken out as acting innocent. A second vice exact percent to get up in the air your fine if you if you anchored to the ground -- nowhere to go I just think it would be I think. The obviously if I'm trying to stop you from getting around the helmet tried to do with anything -- campuses to get my media I'm thinking I'm -- -- vulnerable you -- I dug up in Portland Maine you're next on Sports Radio stale holly and until they don't I got dark. -- what I every talking about Detroit -- still in doubt -- -- -- -- top somewhere and got. Mobile. Well we were in the building together last night because is Steve and acting TC were -- the Red Sox. I was working with Billy Jaffe as we were doing the Bruins game last night Bruins in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena. Shut out the Detroit Red Wings three to nothing -- get the sense as you watch as I do. That the red wings are more than little frustrated right now with how the Bruins just keep calm and -- them and come and asked them. And when they do finally get through the layers of defense and get to the goal took -- just says no not now. Delegates frustrates and I think it's just. To spit the bit in the moment. I -- you think about that second goal last nine and that's not just if that the cliche is oh yeah they're so young you're so inexperienced. Of course -- things those things are gonna happen veteran guys leaving the ice. For entire team afterwards at intermission. -- we're going. They left the irons and the Bruins are there taking advantage of it in my man Mike Babcock and his poetry. The -- Mike Babcock after the game he had a right so we get into goals it's been -- and where you want to. We gave them too. And you just can't do that and any you know play a series and expect to compete against that that the best. -- you know it's funny because in the first game between these two teams Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal of the game.

As you heard all the baseball fans cause soft goal because if you are reduced catch it -- glove side and a radio right up a little why you got it you know.

On the team I should've known that they are gonna respond like this after winning a game in Boston it sounds like. The lead after three games may be changes if this series has won more games that and it. It sounds like after three games. -- the Detroit Red Wings were just happy to be there happy to get that victory. After game the other that's their that's their high water. The other big controversy about putting up my quotation fingers here the other big story out of last night's game was the embellishment of Brad martian.

Through the series aren't so we get the shot out you get shut out last night gives up a goal in the first two games -- -- in three games has given up two goals. -- one of those goals as you said dale and I'm with you and -- outstanding. Outstanding goal. From from Powell got to end the the setup to the goal hit the that's stick work. To get to the goal was amazing and it's all right -- to put on a clinic there. But you'll look at took arrest not him all the credit in the world but the -- the way they play one more teams. Don't copy it and commit to copy all leaks are copycat police and National Hockey League is to you look at quote system. Like a difficult system -- teach. What are essentially he's asking is. Everybody help out on defense and create layers of defense our defensemen are obviously I'll have to be defensive defenseman but. Everybody is gonna have to be a two way player. The teams copy of it I think they'd like to but the problem or else it's not fun to do it's not on the -- it what was of Rwanda wants at all. You know it's like in the NBA stars what is everybody wanted to that -- score and and then. You know dockets KG and Paul and ray in here in the instilled that that defensive ethnic. And and they'd buy into it and the stars buy into it -- the other guys have to buy into what. That's what happened here with -- in the Bruins had to get the right guys who bought into it and the guys who haven't bought into what. Haven't shipped out at -- I mean really are great players castles Gortat Tyler Sagan. Our Mary jogger who you know played here at the end of last year played this year for New Jersey. At a very good year for them he didn't buy into it either if you don't buy into it if you don't do it. I'd love to know old man hockey are yarder loved that guy so you -- you don't think there are enough guys in the league. Who would who would buy into it and if you say look at look at what the Bruins have done. -- the Bruins -- -- Stanley Cup playing the system. That they went to another Stanley Cup final loss in six games. This year presidents' trophy. It looking like -- they're there are the favorites at at the very least to advance to the next round and probably beyond that. If you look at that track record could you get somebody to buying and based on the results. Think a lot of people -- and it's more than that to mean you're also talking about guys -- extra layer of toughness. And in we talked about before a lot of guys that wanna put the puck in the back -- the -- are also guys that are gonna go into the corner for either. You know that they want to score and they a lot of the house of unprotected I'll be over here when you get pock yeah exactly yeah when you gotta make sure you get it to me -- you know I'm a federal help you get it -- -- that that extra layer of toughness. -- for -- means to have guys who run out there and and not be afraid to go into the corner. Does not that many guys out there you put a pretty good group together and talk about the -- this just keep common Tracy -- that he's come and. -- right Steve bass while you're up in just watch him. It is very able to. We wish solitary would do last year different you understand that this team I think it's better than last Tuesday. So what they were able to do for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Any any surprisingly short here speaking of swallowing a -- -- what they're doing to Detroit right now it Detroit it is true for Detroit to win the series it's very simple you talk about that you all you want. They are gonna Jimmy Howard is just gonna happen to he's gonna have to be beyond -- could that be to -- plus plus. Forced into it always team wins is if it Jimmy Howard doesn't talk up. And a -- don't win. The problem is because of the injuries because of of these retirements the youth on their blue line we talked about this before Michael. They're so young -- much less experienced than the Bruins are back on the Blue Line. And they look. The Bruins when they get set up in the offensive end. And there in the red wings are not big and strong necessarily. And in -- Ericsson their biggest strongest defenseman is playing right now. The Bruins just -- up I mean after awhile they Wear you down physically. Gone back to Steve's point about how relentless they are and after -- -- like no god not more. You do you use a break she will -- -- you know you just don't you just in its you're not on top your game anymore you just can't keep. You see it keep going forward on a team. That's just crossing you at every turn -- getting hits every time I see they're big they're gonna do it takes they get the puck back. You know it's a -- it's been so much fun to watch just the relentless pressure that they put on. They are gonna play game four tomorrow night IE I'm not going to be a bit surprised if you see more you you've now seen two games in a row member Michael asked the question on Monday. Is is the Bruins team the one you soft Friday night of the one you saw Sunday. Now that you've seen -- two games in a row is a pretty obvious which Bruins team which is the real Bruins team you've seen both Sunday and now on Tuesday. You know that that in your face grind you down for -- hit hard good goaltending good team defense. We actually showed one of the packages last night a couple of times when they did get running around Detroit's -- hockey team they're -- get they're gonna get chances. The Bruins are so call. That's okay all right we can do this week you know well back Jack will bust are -- ends we'll get back and help out would give you more layers you might get by that temperature not gonna get by this guy. And if you don't get by this guy by the way that guy in the goal is really real -- Don't get it -- to Detroit another thing fellas I don't understand why Detroit so bad in this series so far three games and when the so bad the power play in last night. It was it was just they they couldn't do it was clear they couldn't do what they wanted to do didn't have really a good shot all night and -- play. And they haven't had they're now all for nine had a good shot in the series that a power no you're exactly right and I'm shocked by that you look at their personality should be a lot better than what they weren't the during the regular season Michael. -- and that was one of the things we talked about for the series started. The -- the sack bright and very middle of the pack bruins' power play was third the National Hockey League regular season. I and I don't of the numbers from the I think Detroit -- like eighteenth. Bruins were eight best on the penalty kill. Red wings you know were again middle of the pack the Bruins are just better when their special teams than the red wings and it's shown. You know has gone back to your original point to when you said if if Jimmy Howard. All the twos to the -- and stands on its head for awhile. Have they're still gonna have to score almost doesn't matter what he does back there -- can set him down for as long as you want peace you have to put the puck in the net yourself. I saw someone I can't remember who said it would the average that their scoring right now it's like less than three quarters of a goal a game any wins. Probably not very often let's get to the call 6177797937. Is the telephone number. -- Belcher town Europe first on Sports Radio dale and -- Hey guys as -- go on and that. -- You're incompetent and so they yeah otherwise this film like this is you know we've we've got there that -- -- -- created order that I truly believe but. I'll let the lions I think based on the last couple years or ground. I have real concerns about the Bruins one stage yeah like they're facing an inferior opponent I think they -- they -- these. Well what -- base that on you got it I don't -- Matt Matt I don't go down not code. But. Matt Matt Matt is Matt why do you say the Bruins think that what they said or done that that indicates that -- -- even the last three years against inferior opponent get up and take to put up yet. But nothing that we this year I know they're better prepared this year -- -- -- lecture for sure but I think this team. That he tried in Barre and the short and they may believe that they almost choked up. I just I disagree with I don't think so -- not I don't think they're offensively -- better than maple -- last year. We know it. And still looked differently about that and added I think there is gonna come out a little little embarrassed after the flat in the got a lot of young guys that they were just. A little nervous in the home crowd -- Babcock and have them ready to go out and be really really good test to see how the Bruins respond and like you alliances I think. The couple out of the -- to it doesn't make that same in the third period. It's a very different game so you know we marketing and all the country today just just how -- Yeah I don't know that it was bounces of the pocket mean obviously with some serious mistakes on Detroit's side with the line stages stuff but. Having said that if you don't have those mistakes it could have been a much better much closer game as far as -- Detroit -- As -- -- so I think Matt does bring up but it just two point on this level here. We need to about the -- the last the last few years the first round seven game series in last year -- are great example. Duke and you can really make a statement. Others into yourselves. If you're up on Detroit your better team better team in Detroit. And you in this thing bam bam -- five game series simulator bring on Montreal Montreal played before we played five were -- ago. Bet that sets a tone I think that is more important for the Bruins than it is for. For fans like custom fans like -- were looking for a sign that they mean business. The Bruins give up home ice advantage in game one you're not gonna play game three in Detroit. But crowd is crazy the buildings -- and even your guide Mike Babcock says you know we needed to play off the emotion of the building in the crowd. -- and -- and outshot them eleven to four in the first period and never took their foot off the gas Detroit had no way answers for what the Bruins were doing. Wouldn't you think now mats thinks this is gonna happen tomorrow night the bat cracks gonna happen ready that they're gonna come out flying when you thought that would happen last. Well what happens but isn't isn't isn't tomorrow night the night where you you look at it Babcock. Basically confessed to every crime and inhumanity but at last night I think you're gonna get -- -- a veteran culture got to do better. I didn't have a pulse of the team so he's telling the world. We got to be better. I gotta be better you -- -- in game four this season on the line because we have to -- may have to -- I don't I don't know elimination game went tomorrow and Ackerman you're not gonna come back 31 from the C 31 from the Bruins. It is not happening sorry. Still I think the problem with the problem are well the problem is I don't think they're capable. Yes I know they they are not as good as the Bruins in any aspect of the game. So what are asking them to do was play above their heads and you're asking for the Bruins to play below their average which is what you gotten game one. Happening game one and the Bruins set off crap when not to mess. Up on the Detroit for me and I stated that Dale Arnold I say when I'm asking them to do. Is what they did in the regular season this year and the year out war where they played the Bruins to. Pretty much a stalemate. With the exception of the one normalcy to enter in the National Anthem blue line knows what the -- do with all the supplies that they don't get the -- of the united so it was nasty and won a couple of the guys swing in -- and his. And I'm not so high right now I had that would -- -- -- -- and I definitely don't school that'd be announced on on the -- and yet to take it home half hour. Yet we just -- literally years only anyway. And I don't get any goal I don't knock on now I got it like this thing out a year Dominick on the cell funnier next on Sports Radio Dele Ali. I dominance of dollar on here. I don't I don't want Jamaica to comment your pocket or earlier wrap our shock. The first commented that I won't be like to hear a lot of I've seen. -- -- recruit fighters -- just. Great job players passed -- it like that they're they're they've recruiters are pretty much at all even if they've played they've never really played this thing out there. And the outcome I was with you -- The guy has immense talent but I just think. Behind -- being behind the play. You know -- -- I think he's a bit 130. Maybe not you know and think out there are gone well. I don't know I think I'd do I'd do -- I think the guys away now. Let -- -- particularly if it's funny because he has a very talented guy you think. He didn't have to lawless up and in the -- -- for march and it was a great score. In all aspects of his game won't be appreciated as long as he continues to agitate the -- -- but we were saying earlier on a call if what if martians play. -- for someone else but I look I you know so far we've we've had. Colors be legitimate -- the sort of like. And and only from wanna put a stigma of it was like. You know Barry Bonds played in in in San Francisco and everyone knew he was tool -- he was doing it on hated it all around the world except for -- -- offense -- schools OK if that that was your guy. I'd like the fact that Bruin fans have called and said and we recognize -- sounds kind of thirty people say you're out there and you'd hate them way worse he played for someone else. But he's our -- And so you recognize the kind of guy he -- but it's like. It's okay -- I think it is it is not going to be a few of those I don't think the case of bonds a dirty player at all he is a diver now there's two different things here. You know if if cycle if you're right in -- marsh and the bit of a dirty player he's not a -- That was something cloud -- really drilled Indians we don't do that crap don't pull lets stuff. And -- didn't dive last night. After he get tripped he thought well maybe if I -- here for implementing this will be five is that it too which is a good thing for my team he didn't dive. There's a difference still bond as a diver not dirty marsh and is a little bit dirty but not a diver. Question of which laundry there -- through -- 6177797937. -- telephone number. It's dale and Holley and cycle -- broadcasting live from Fenway Park here on Sports Radio WE yeah. It did end up behind him to try to stop. Circle -- here right now. -- this expression on his base. Exhibit to he's saying he just walked speaks with -- -- -- I think that would link gets little extended them looked compliant on one side no question about it. Trying to make contact with his -- it's -- -- ball. What my Twitter followers Jeffs says if Brett doesn't dive. How do you explain -- watching the wrong legacies rolling on the ice I just said he embellished this is not the same thing yet. Diving diving means there was no infraction. He just flopped CP case to bunt in an attempt to drop a call peak. Clearly got tripped. Yeah by Brendan Smith that was clear. Don't know don't make her once he had the guys but there are acting involved yes and no actually it. -- acting did not involve the trip the trip happened then after that was some award winning acting. Here's the other they understand about like you know that whole play and how dangerous it can be. And whether or not you stick your leg out candidate to try to stop them or your bracing yourself for the impact. It is defined as Smith wasn't. The -- and CF precedent if if I'm if I'm Smith. And embracing myself for the impact because I think comedy just hit them head on and he -- sidesteps the united stick my knee out to try to stop them anyway I can't. Isn't my -- every bit as is vulnerable as he used. And why does the Smart thing to do. In the exact same way in this -- happened with Matt Cooke in the hit on Tyson barrier earlier this week and Matt -- going to be suspended today. I've heard anywhere from from ten to twelve to the rest of the playoffs who. The difference here is -- might be the president plans could be Tyson berries like it's on the ice the McCain going right and Matt cooks like is -- Extended but it off the dice. So he's gonna hit me on me it blew out Tyson very easily but it's not gonna blow up Matt -- sneak. Because his knee is not on the ice they're that's what the differences -- -- once it US I mean if you're getting taken out as acting innocent. A second vice exact percent to get up in the air your fine if you if you anchored to the ground -- nowhere to go I just think it would be I think. The obviously if I'm trying to stop you from getting around the helmet tried to do with anything -- campuses to get my media I'm thinking I'm -- -- vulnerable you -- I dug up in Portland Maine you're next on Sports Radio stale holly and until they don't I got dark. -- what I every talking about Detroit -- still in doubt -- -- -- -- top somewhere and got. Mobile. Well we were in the building together last night because is Steve and acting TC were -- the Red Sox. I was working with Billy Jaffe as we were doing the Bruins game last night Bruins in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena. Shut out the Detroit Red Wings three to nothing -- get the sense as you watch as I do. That the red wings are more than little frustrated right now with how the Bruins just keep calm and -- them and come and asked them. And when they do finally get through the layers of defense and get to the goal took -- just says no not now. Delegates frustrates and I think it's just. To spit the bit in the moment. I -- you think about that second goal last nine and that's not just if that the cliche is oh yeah they're so young you're so inexperienced. Of course -- things those things are gonna happen veteran guys leaving the ice. For entire team afterwards at intermission. -- we're going. They left the irons and the Bruins are there taking advantage of it in my man Mike Babcock and his poetry. The -- Mike Babcock after the game he had a right so we get into goals it's been -- and where you want to. We gave them too. And you just can't do that and any you know play a series and expect to compete against that that the best. -- you know it's funny because in the first game between these two teams Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal of the game. And their Bruins fans were calling it a soft goal to -- gave up -- soft goal I didn't see it notes it I thought it was a great shot by a great player. That first goal last night Doug Hamilton goal I've heard red wings fans criticized that as being soft goal. Billy Jaffe said it on our on our intermission post game shows and I agree with him with us tonight. He had about that much room in the top corner depict any picked it put it right under the bar. It was a great shot by a break -- but don't you would you agree it was a defensive break offensively -- -- but I'm not blaming Jimmy Howard for that goal which is what I've heard coming out of Detroit the last eighteen now. As you heard all the baseball fans cause soft goal because if you are reduced catch it -- glove side and a radio right up a little why you got it you know. I think that what I'm here and now out of the series of people sand will Detroit ever scored another goal I mean it's been so tough form but at the same time when you look at last night's game. Without the two mistake goals and in the empty netter at the end which really didn't matter. If you. You're looking at another really hard fought game last night and end up being in Canada and easy victory because of those two mistakes they made a line -- that ended up. The in you know semi easy goals were scored. You don't have value maybe talking about a completely different game I don't really agree with these people out of their -- -- Detroit will never score they they're they're gonna fold up and go away now this is not gonna happen for them but those pretty evenly matched games. Save that this. The mistakes and try to go those of people in Detroit I mean yeah if you listen a -- -- earlier today they they they took a few minutes. And they get had some sound from Detroit radio. So people were calling and people are texting and think it's. It's done it's over they're not as good as the Bruins -- not let's talk about the draft now. Let's talk about something else because the red wings just don't have it let's move on to next year. I public think yeah you're right it could've been could've been a closer game but those mistakes. -- mistakes like that. In a playoff game he'll leave it tells you might well what the mentality of the team. Even their -- Hussein didn't have the proper pulse. On the team I should've known that they are gonna respond like this after winning a game in Boston it sounds like. The lead after three games may be changes if this series has won more games that and it. It sounds like after three games. -- the Detroit Red Wings were just happy to be there happy to get that victory. After game the other that's their that's their high water. The other big controversy about putting up my quotation fingers here the other big story out of last night's game was the embellishment of Brad martian. And now how that's being portrayed open Detroit and here as well march and in the dressing room after the game was asked by one of the members of the media. He said you know people on Twitter questioning whether or not you you know you're embellished the caller not. And martian had a great response he -- that's why -- on Twitter and I'm in the national hockey. The -- embellish the call absolutely positively in my mind yet. Did -- get fouled. Absolutely positively. It was called a tripping minor should've been called a tripping minor -- stayed down a few seconds longer than he should have. Maybe. Was at the same -- He got tripped. He got knocked down and I'll say this. He's lucky in this regard he got his leg up in the year because if he's -- had been on the ice there's a real good chance it has knee blown out on that wreck. Well I think what what march he's a guy who pushes you pushes the envelope at all times. Probably. 01 of the least like players and the National Hockey League -- like PT PK IC about. I don't think either what what personal PK is a -- only PK is a dirty player. Mark and I agree with the I think that's that's fair marching and is more to be dirty player than PK but he is not a diaper even though he pushes him. He was earlier in his career he was a diver he was a and I know for a fact that he got called in and flowed and the rest of the Bruins basically said we don't do that leap here. Other teams do that we don't do -- -- -- now they want him to play out on the edge you're right that does that open up the same as diving. And he cleaned up the diving act awhile ago. Now he got trip last night I got absolutely and but what I don't know is how orderly asked them. How bad was he hurt because he didn't get up right away like I did -- awkwardly but I don't think he was especially hurt necessarily look. Stayed on the last few more minutes maybe they given the five minute -- major which he had seen the night before. Called against Matt -- by the way his suspension is coming down this afternoon by Matt -- against Tyson -- Andy maybe he's taken in May they give -- five minute major. And this is why these shows are so much fun last night all the guys that are deal with the Bruins -- stuff. It's a start to kind of figure out the intricacies of the game because. When I saw the play happened and you know I've been on skates like twice in my life so -- I'm clueless of how you would react but it seems like everyone -- that well. You know maybe they were -- -- and they were after it seems to me that was a play that was going to be a really legal hard hit. At center ice there and -- and kind of got out of the way of it and because of it almost caught a neat. But if I'm the defending player in that in that case I sent myself flop on whitening my stance. For the point of impact -- I think how many hits you and that if you sidestep -- might -- out there exposed as probably gonna hit yours. It's what makes this game so brutal I mean it's just eat you can get her -- like that you're you're need to be blown I don't think there was anything intentional about the all right. I do think there are lucky he didn't wanna get by -- and you do what you have to do so he doesn't get by he stock is like any tripped him. It was not a major penalty -- you know he didn't -- lot marsh and -- thankfully because marsh and -- was off the ice it's what saved him on that play. But the idea that he dole is ridiculous. He's got tripped a -- embellish it trying to draw more than two minutes probably maybe I. Here's a question for you guys you look at the Bruins and you look at Tuukka Rask. Through the series aren't so we get the shot out you get shut out last night gives up a goal in the first two games -- -- in three games has given up two goals. -- one of those goals as you said dale and I'm with you and -- outstanding. Outstanding goal. From from Powell got to end the the setup to the goal hit the that's stick work. To get to the goal was amazing and it's all right -- to put on a clinic there. But you'll look at took arrest not him all the credit in the world but the -- the way they play one more teams. Don't copy it and commit to copy all leaks are copycat police and National Hockey League is to you look at quote system. Like a difficult system -- teach. What are essentially he's asking is. Everybody help out on defense and create layers of defense our defensemen are obviously I'll have to be defensive defenseman but. Everybody is gonna have to be a two way player. The teams copy of it I think they'd like to but the problem or else it's not fun to do it's not on the -- it what was of Rwanda wants at all. You know it's like in the NBA stars what is everybody wanted to that -- score and and then. You know dockets KG and Paul and ray in here in the instilled that that defensive ethnic. And and they'd buy into it and the stars buy into it -- the other guys have to buy into what. That's what happened here with -- in the Bruins had to get the right guys who bought into it and the guys who haven't bought into what. Haven't shipped out at -- I mean really are great players castles Gortat Tyler Sagan. Our Mary jogger who you know played here at the end of last year played this year for New Jersey. At a very good year for them he didn't buy into it either if you don't buy into it if you don't do it. I'd love to know old man hockey are yarder loved that guy so you -- you don't think there are enough guys in the league. Who would who would buy into it and if you say look at look at what the Bruins have done. -- the Bruins -- -- Stanley Cup playing the system. That they went to another Stanley Cup final loss in six games. This year presidents' trophy. It looking like -- they're there are the favorites at at the very least to advance to the next round and probably beyond that. If you look at that track record could you get somebody to buying and based on the results. Think a lot of people -- and it's more than that to mean you're also talking about guys -- extra layer of toughness. And in we talked about before a lot of guys that wanna put the puck in the back -- the -- are also guys that are gonna go into the corner for either. You know that they want to score and they a lot of the house of unprotected I'll be over here when you get pock yeah exactly yeah when you gotta make sure you get it to me -- you know I'm a federal help you get it -- -- that that extra layer of toughness. -- for -- means to have guys who run out there and and not be afraid to go into the corner. Does not that many guys out there you put a pretty good group together and talk about the -- this just keep common Tracy -- that he's come and. -- right Steve bass while you're up in just watch him. It is very able to. We wish solitary would do last year different you understand that this team I think it's better than last Tuesday. So what they were able to do for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Having said that if you don't have those mistakes it could have been a much better much closer game as far as -- Detroit -- As -- -- so I think Matt does bring up but it just two point on this level here. We need to about the -- the last the last few years the first round seven game series in last year -- are great example. Duke and you can really make a statement. Others into yourselves. If you're up on Detroit your better team better team in Detroit. And you in this thing bam bam -- five game series simulator bring on Montreal Montreal played before we played five were -- ago.

It is not happening sorry. Still I think the problem with the problem are well the problem is I don't think they're capable. Yes I know they they are not as good as the Bruins in any aspect of the game. So what are asking them to do was play above their heads and you're asking for the Bruins to play below their average which is what you gotten game one. Happening game one and the Bruins set off crap when not to mess. Up on the Detroit for me and I stated that Dale Arnold I say when I'm asking them to do. Is what they did in the regular season this year and the year out war where they played the Bruins to. Pretty much a stalemate. With the exception of the one normalcy to enter in the National Anthem blue line knows what the -- do with all the supplies that they don't get the -- of the united so it was nasty and won a couple of the guys swing in -- and his.

He just flopped CP case to bunt in an attempt to drop a call peak. Clearly got tripped. Yeah by Brendan Smith that was clear. Don't know don't make her once he had the guys but there are acting involved yes and no actually it. -- acting did not involve the trip the trip happened then after that was some award winning acting. Here's the other they understand about like you know that whole play and how dangerous it can be. And whether or not you stick your leg out candidate to try to stop them or your bracing yourself for the impact. It is defined as Smith wasn't. The -- and CF precedent if if I'm if I'm Smith. And embracing myself for the impact because I think comedy just hit them head on and he -- sidesteps the united stick my knee out to try to stop them anyway I can't. Isn't my -- every bit as is vulnerable as he used. And why does the Smart thing to do. In the exact same way in this -- happened with Matt Cooke in the hit on Tyson barrier earlier this week and Matt -- going to be suspended today. I've heard anywhere from from ten to twelve to the rest of the playoffs who. The difference here is -- might be the president plans could be Tyson berries like it's on the ice the McCain going right and Matt cooks like is -- Extended but it off the dice. So he's gonna hit me on me it blew out Tyson very easily but it's not gonna blow up Matt -- sneak. Because his knee is not on the ice they're that's what the differences -- -- once it US I mean if you're getting taken out as acting innocent. A second vice exact percent to get up in the air your fine if you if you anchored to the ground -- nowhere to go I just think it would be I think. The obviously if I'm trying to stop you from getting around the helmet tried to do with anything -- campuses to get my media I'm thinking I'm -- -- vulnerable you -- I dug up in Portland Maine you're next on Sports Radio stale holly and until they don't I got dark. -- what I every talking about Detroit -- still in doubt -- -- -- -- top somewhere and got. Mobile. The Sox. I was working with Billy Jaffe as we were doing the Bruins game last night Bruins in Detroit at Joe Louis Arena. Shut out the Detroit Red Wings three to nothing -- get the sense as you watch as I do. That the red wings are more than little frustrated right now with how the Bruins just keep calm and -- them and come and asked them. And when they do finally get through the layers of defense and get to the goal took -- just says no not now. Delegates frustrates and I think it's just. To spit the bit in the moment. I -- you think about that second goal last nine and that's not just if that the cliche is oh yeah they're so young you're so inexperienced. Of course -- things those things are gonna happen veteran guys leaving the ice. For entire team afterwards at intermission. -- we're going. They left the irons and the Bruins are there taking advantage of it in my man Mike Babcock and his poetry. The -- Mike Babcock after the game he had a right so we get into goals it's been -- and where you want to. We gave them too. And you just can't do that and any you know play a series and expect to compete against that that the best. -- you know it's funny because in the first game between these two teams Pavel Datsyuk scored the only goal of the game. And their Bruins fans were calling it a soft goal to -- gave up -- soft goal I didn't see it notes it I thought it was a great shot by a great player. That first goal last night Doug Hamilton goal I've heard red wings fans criticized that as being soft goal. Billy Jaffe said it on our on our intermission post game shows and I agree with him with us tonight. He had about that much room in the top corner depict any picked it put it right under the bar. It was a great shot by a break -- but don't you would you agree it was a defensive break offensively -- -- but I'm not blaming Jimmy Howard for that goal which is what I've heard coming out of Detroit the last eighteen now. As you heard all the baseball fans cause soft goal because if you are reduced catch it -- glove side and a radio right up a little why you got it you know. I think that what I'm here and now out of the series of people sand will Detroit ever scored another goal I mean it's been so tough form but at the same time when you look at last night's game. Without the two mistake goals and in the empty netter at the end which really didn't matter. If you. You're looking at another really hard fought game last night and end up being in Canada and easy victory because of those two mistakes they made a line -- that ended up. The in you know semi easy goals were scored. You don't have value maybe talking about a completely different game I don't really agree with these people out of their -- -- Detroit will never score they they're they're gonna fold up and go away now this is not gonna happen for them but those pretty evenly matched games. Save that this. The mistakes and try to go those of people in Detroit I mean yeah if you listen a -- -- earlier today they they they took a few minutes. And they get had some sound from Detroit radio. So people were calling and people are texting and think it's. It's done it's over they're not as good as the Bruins -- not let's talk about the draft now. Let's talk about something else because the red wings just don't have it let's move on to next year. I public think yeah you're right it could've been could've been a closer game but those mistakes. -- mistakes like that. In a playoff game he'll leave it tells you might well what the mentality of the team. Even their -- Hussein didn't have the proper pulse. On the team I should've known that they are gonna respond like this after winning a game in Boston it sounds like. The lead after three games may be changes if this series has won more games that and it. It sounds like after three games. -- the Detroit Red Wings were just happy to be there happy to get that victory. After game the other that's their that's their high water. The other big controversy about putting up my quotation fingers here the other big story out of last night's game was the embellishment of Brad martian. And now how that's being portrayed open Detroit and here as well march and in the dressing room after the game was asked by one of the members of the media. He said you know people on Twitter questioning whether or not you you know you're embellished the caller not. And martian had a great response he -- that's why -- on Twitter and I'm in the national hockey. The -- embellish the call absolutely positively in my mind yet. Did -- get fouled. Absolutely positively. It was called a tripping minor should've been called a tripping minor -- stayed down a few seconds longer than he should have. Maybe. Was at the same -- He got tripped. He got knocked down and I'll say this. He's lucky in this regard he got his leg up in the year because if he's -- had been on the ice there's a real good chance it has knee blown out on that wreck. Well I think what what march he's a guy who pushes you pushes the envelope at all times. Probably. 01 of the least like players and the National Hockey League -- like PT PK IC about. I don't think either what what personal PK is a -- only PK is a dirty player. Mark and I agree with the I think that's that's fair marching and is more to be dirty player than PK but he is not a diaper even though he pushes him. He was earlier in his career he was a diver he was a and I know for a fact that he got called in and flowed and the rest of the Bruins basically said we don't do that leap here. Other teams do that we don't do -- -- -- now they want him to play out on the edge you're right that does that open up the same as diving. And he cleaned up the diving act awhile ago. Now he got trip last night I got absolutely and but what I don't know is how orderly asked them. How bad was he hurt because he didn't get up right away like I did -- awkwardly but I don't think he was especially hurt necessarily look. Stayed on the last few more minutes maybe they given the five minute -- major which he had seen the night before. Called against Matt -- by the way his suspension is coming down this afternoon by Matt -- against Tyson -- Andy maybe he's taken in May they give -- five minute major. And this is why these shows are so much fun last night all the guys that are deal with the Bruins -- stuff. It's a start to kind of figure out the intricacies of the game because. When I saw the play happened and you know I've been on skates like twice in my life so -- I'm clueless of how you would react but it seems like everyone -- that well. You know maybe they were -- -- and they were after it seems to me that was a play that was going to be a really legal hard hit. At center ice there and -- and kind of got out of the way of it and because of it almost caught a neat. But if I'm the defending player in that in that case I sent myself flop on whitening my stance. For the point of impact -- I think how many hits you and that if you sidestep -- might -- out there exposed as probably gonna hit yours. It's what makes this game so brutal I mean it's just eat you can get her -- like that you're you're need to be blown I don't think there was anything intentional about the all right. I do think there are lucky he didn't wanna get by -- and you do what you have to do so he doesn't get by he stock is like any tripped him. It was not a major penalty -- you know he didn't -- lot marsh and -- thankfully because marsh and -- was off the ice it's what saved him on that play. But the idea that he dole is ridiculous. He's got tripped a -- embellish it trying to draw more than two minutes probably maybe I. Here's a question for you guys you look at the Bruins and you look at Tuukka Rask. Through the series aren't so we get the shot out you get shut out last night gives up a goal in the first two games -- -- in three games has given up two goals. -- one of those goals as you said dale and I'm with you and -- outstanding. Outstanding goal. From from Powell got to end the the setup to the goal hit the that's stick work. To get to the goal was amazing and it's all right -- to put on a clinic there. But you'll look at took arrest not him all the credit in the world but the -- the way they play one more teams. Don't copy it and commit to copy all leaks are copycat police and National Hockey League is to you look at quote system. Like a difficult system -- teach. What are essentially he's asking is. Everybody help out on defense and create layers of defense our defensemen are obviously I'll have to be defensive defenseman but. Everybody is gonna have to be a two way player. The teams copy of it I think they'd like to but the problem or else it's not fun to do it's not on the -- it what was of Rwanda wants at all. You know it's like in the NBA stars what is everybody wanted to that -- score and and then. You know dockets KG and Paul and ray in here in the instilled that that defensive ethnic. And and they'd buy into it and the stars buy into it -- the other guys have to buy into what. That's what happened here with -- in the Bruins had to get the right guys who bought into it and the guys who haven't bought into what. Haven't shipped out at -- I mean really are great players castles Gortat Tyler Sagan. Our Mary jogger who you know played here at the end of last year played this year for New Jersey. At a very good year for them he didn't buy into it either if you don't buy into it if you don't do it. I'd love to know old man hockey are yarder loved that guy so you -- you don't think there are enough guys in the league. Who would who would buy into it and if you say look at look at what the Bruins have done. -- the Bruins -- -- Stanley Cup playing the system. That they went to another Stanley Cup final loss in six games. This year presidents' trophy. It looking like -- they're there are the favorites at at the very least to advance to the next round and probably beyond that. If you look at that track record could you get somebody to buying and based on the results. Think a lot of people -- and it's more than that to mean you're also talking about guys -- extra layer of toughness. And in we talked about before a lot of guys that wanna put the puck in the back -- the -- are also guys that are gonna go into the corner for either. You know that they want to score and they a lot of the house of unprotected I'll be over here when you get pock yeah exactly yeah when you gotta make sure you get it to me -- you know I'm a federal help you get it -- -- that that extra layer of toughness. -- for -- means to have guys who run out there and and not be afraid to go into the corner. Does not that many guys out there you put a pretty good group together and talk about the -- this just keep common Tracy -- that he's come and. -- right Steve bass while you're up in just watch him. It is very able to. We wish solitary would do last year different you understand that this team I think it's better than last Tuesday. So what they were able to do for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Any any surprisingly short here speaking of swallowing a -- -- what they're doing to Detroit right now it Detroit it is true for Detroit to win the series it's very simple you talk about that you all you want. They are gonna Jimmy Howard is just gonna happen to he's gonna have to be beyond -- could that be to -- plus plus. Forced into it always team wins is if it Jimmy Howard doesn't talk up. And a -- don't win. The problem is because of the injuries because of of these retirements the youth on their blue line we talked about this before Michael. They're so young -- much less experienced than the Bruins are back on the Blue Line. And they look. The Bruins when they get set up in the offensive end. And there in the red wings are not big and strong necessarily. And in -- Ericsson their biggest strongest defenseman is playing right now. The Bruins just -- up I mean after awhile they Wear you down physically. Gone back to Steve's point about how relentless they are and after -- -- like no god not more. You do you use a break she will -- -- you know you just don't you just in its you're not on top your game anymore you just can't keep. You see it keep going forward on a team. That's just crossing you at every turn -- getting hits every time I see they're big they're gonna do it takes they get the puck back. You know it's a -- it's been so much fun to watch just the relentless pressure that they put on. They are gonna play game four tomorrow night IE I'm not going to be a bit surprised if you see more you you've now seen two games in a row member Michael asked the question on Monday. Is is the Bruins team the one you soft Friday night of the one you saw Sunday. Now that you've seen -- two games in a row is a pretty obvious which Bruins team which is the real Bruins team you've seen both Sunday and now on Tuesday. You know that that in your face grind you down for -- hit hard good goaltending good team defense. We actually showed one of the packages last night a couple of times when they did get running around Detroit's -- hockey team they're -- get they're gonna get chances. The Bruins are so call. That's okay all right we can do this week you know well back Jack will bust are -- ends we'll get back and help out would give you more layers you might get by that temperature not gonna get by this guy. And if you don't get by this guy by the way that guy in the goal is really real -- Don't get it -- to Detroit another thing fellas I don't understand why Detroit so bad in this series so far three games and when the so bad the power play in last night. It was it was just they they couldn't do it was clear they couldn't do what they wanted to do didn't have really a good shot all night and -- play. And they haven't had they're now all for nine had a good shot in the series that a power no you're exactly right and I'm shocked by that you look at their personality should be a lot better than what they weren't the during the regular season Michael. -- and that was one of the things we talked about for the series started. The -- the sack bright and very middle of the pack bruins' power play was third the National Hockey League regular season. I and I don't of the numbers from the I think Detroit -- like eighteenth. Bruins were eight best on the penalty kill. Red wings you know were again middle of the pack the Bruins are just better when their special teams than the red wings and it's shown. You know has gone back to your original point to when you said if if Jimmy Howard. All the twos to the -- and stands on its head for awhile. Have they're still gonna have to score almost doesn't matter what he does back there -- can set him down for as long as you want peace you have to put the puck in the net yourself. I saw someone I can't remember who said it would the average that their scoring right now it's like less than three quarters of a goal a game any wins. Probably not very often let's get to the call 6177797937. Is the telephone number. -- Belcher town Europe first on Sports Radio dale and -- Hey guys as -- go on and that. -- You're incompetent and so they yeah otherwise this film like this is you know we've we've got there that -- -- -- created order that I truly believe but. I'll let the lions I think based on the last couple years or ground. I have real concerns about the Bruins one stage yeah like they're facing an inferior opponent I think they -- they -- these. Well what -- base that on you got it I don't -- Matt Matt I don't go down not code. But. Matt Matt Matt is Matt why do you say the Bruins think that what they said or done that that indicates that -- -- even the last three years against inferior opponent get up and take to put up yet.

We need to about the -- the last the last few years the first round seven game series in last year -- are great example. Duke and you can really make a statement. Others into yourselves.

The difference here is -- might be the president plans could be Tyson berries like it's on the ice the McCain going right and Matt cooks like is -- Extended but it off the dice. So he's gonna hit me on me it blew out Tyson very easily but it's not gonna blow up Matt -- sneak. Because his knee is not on the ice they're that's what the differences -- -- once it US I mean if you're getting taken out as acting innocent. A second vice exact percent to get up in the air your fine if you if you anchored to the ground -- nowhere to go I just think it would be I think. The obviously if I'm trying to stop you from getting around the helmet tried to do with anything -- campuses to get my media I'm thinking I'm -- -- vulnerable you -- I dug up in Portland Maine you're next on Sports Radio stale holly and until they don't I got dark. -- what I every talking about Detroit -- still in doubt -- -- -- -- top somewhere and got. Mobile. The -- up and down a lot of skill that they do all the little things in the basic. When the puck around the ozone. I've been watching some of flyers are Rangers series the skill level just nine -- between Mitchell. Well. It and I haven't saying that this entire series this whole. And and I really do think it's a myth this idea that that the red wings are -- by far the superior skilled and skating team they're not. They've got a couple of guys who got good speed if you haven't noticed -- -- quest in the first three games. Now I don't know maybe a great skater and he is have even seen them has he done anything at all. Other visible with the Q do you France's I think got a break outages so -- but that was so Chris. Everybody knows I gonna do which -- it's fun to watch. It is fun to watch they're playing really at the top of their game right now. After they got that first game out of the way and and you know somebody's set on on Twitter said to me. Well you know how come the Bruins didn't come out focused in game one it's all well and good to say it. The fact of the matter is they haven't played a game mattered in three weeks. And it was hard to crank it back up again you know when you're out -- going through the motions for three weeks and they work. And you know you wanna play well -- Judy you know it doesn't really matter if you win if you lose doesn't really matter. As I don't -- that -- a minute that sounds like a pretty big excuse for a team that has. Championship aspirations menu if you're the best team in the -- it to make it sound like you're never gonna have a bad game knowing what if you -- not thought I'd say I say never that game but game one you're starting off a playoff series against the team. That is. Not on your level you're at home. In game one -- is the red wings I think he should come out as as if as of that this is this is there's some urgency there there was no urgency from the -- they were flat. They didn't seem prepared for what Detroit was gonna bring the table I don't. I don't think it's a good excuse. To say well they had played a game that mattered in in a few. We have a little overstated how bad the -- boring game now -- and say -- -- just happy as -- -- -- one nothing by a team you know that that played as well as they played in this whole series the company -- nothing shots on goal we're dead even the two teams were dead even everything about the game was even. They lost one nothing and a great shot by Pavel Datsyuk they did not get run off the ice are completely out played. What they have done is run the other team off the ice and completely outplayed in the last two games usually -- I don't buy is is win win people have to find. An explanation for what happened in this kind of our jobs right hears it. And I guess I just don't like a win win some wholesaler they don't like they showed up to plated there they didn't look focused because it's -- from an experience of life. When I felt great sometimes -- 104 and made an air and sometimes and I felt sick and and didn't wanna play for whatever reason now was might go down out there and have a really good ball game. I think sometimes. The other team just finds a way to outplay you and mixed you look. A little sub -- to what you're supposed to be and I think it yet easily. And more times and occasionally you have to give the other team credit for what they did and I think I would agree with you that. Maybe Detroit came out and played. The game of their playoffs. In game one and that's the best you're gonna see him for the rest. Except except dale has been asking the question for the last couple days. Who were the real Bruins the team we saw on game one. -- the team we saw in game two but it's still so I do with what Detroit did to the powerless to make -- looked -- art so. So we can see the real Bruins in game one because Detroit was able to take them out of their game is averages and dale or is -- that they were prepared. Because we hadn't played a real game in in that in a few weeks to get that Detroit. Takes him out of their game I want com a more comfortable with that that's that's fine that that makes all the sense in the world. But don't tell me that may have played a game matters in three weeks and in the playoffs start and they were right now you're ready to play well enough not being ready to play is is not a good excuse out. Now how likely it it it it that extended I'd agree with what what do they do how did they respond to the fact that they didn't think they were ready to play in game. They came out line in games to win three looked like a completely different team because they set. That's not us that's not how we play we're better than that -- profit to you that were better than. If that extended one game became two games became if if the Bruins looked like the LA kings right now. Down three love to the San Jose Sharks and look like they're being run out of the building then that's a team not ready to apply. But the Bruins put up put the squash on that on on that's not. Us and go on back to our our original when this. When this series started and analysts complain about how late they started playing their first game on Friday night with a month real don't they series. So both for. They happy that they're done right now have some time off or they look at the same situation is like. We sit around a week for the next series to be over I'll tell. When they get an advantage under the new system this year. In the old system everybody would be re seeded Montreal would be sitting their right now not having any idea who they were gonna play in the next round. They might be able to narrow it down when we could play this team this team this team. But we don't know. They're sitting there now knowing exactly who they're gonna play one of two teams. That it now we can prepare for two teams to teams only and we are gonna be ready when things in the basic. When the puck around the ozone.
