CSNNE.com's Bruins Insider Joe Haggerty joins SportsNet Central to bring player reaction on the Bruins 1-0 loss to the Rangers.
It is very well against us hasn't since I've been here. Goalies obsolete. Think you can put -- -- to think that probably going away. The couple breaks either way but an independent solo. I don't wanna say -- Texas has always played well prepared. Responded well. NHL standings in the Eastern Conference is as important as what's his -- fans. -- like a first round playoff match up -- Montreal it could be a Rangers because the Rangers now tied it at some points heading south. We use our our belly shirts -- -- and head on down back into the garden and check in with our Bruins insider Joe Hagerty Joe I -- a lot of Brewers fans are hoping for a playoff match up with the tabs and a look like that would be the case but look at this now all of a sudden. Perhaps in the Rangers are tied with 87 points you tell me who's the better match up for the Bruins the pats are the Rangers it. You know while -- a lot of people are are afraid of that happens there's a lot of people are stationed that are scared and running for cover. Whenever they think about the Montreal Canadians in the first round because of the emotion because of that energy because of everything the pats you're ready stuff everything involved the Canadians. But I gotta be honest with you I don't really think that people need to be scared -- -- perhaps as much as they need to be afraid of a matchup with the New York Rangers in the first round. And I think -- side exhibit AB and C today. Henrik Lundqvist in the goaltending. He said the desire that that team plays in the defensive system in discipline that they play went 29 block shots you don't see that every day and I hockey game the NHL. That is just throwing yourself in front a pox being willing to sacrifice. In order to win a game yeah -- -- all that that little sort of level and that little thing that Sean Avery brings the table to beside him fight with Gregory Campbell. I think as the bad matchup for them and it's somebody they should try to avoid if. Osgood -- show and always appreciate the honesty let's talk about momentum. The Brewers certainly had it after an impressive win over New Jersey earlier in the week and then that beat down of Montreal. But they had a let down against the Rangers did they get some of that momentum back. Don't think -- -- because living at the end of the day yes they didn't you know they did what they get pedal to the medal for the entire sixty minutes it looked like they really -- -- are in the last ten minutes of the game. But I think it was still a good defensive effort to -- racks Rask played well. And they don't have any choice but to get right back on the horse in the play hard and to give a full sixty minutes because guess what. The play in the Philadelphia Flyers on Sunday night the top team in the east and that's a big statement game for the Bruins I think you'll see the best that they haven't Philly on Sunday night.
