Bruins continue to struggle

The Bruins looked to bounce back sunday after a tough loss to the Islanders the day before. This would not be an easy task however as the Bruins had to take on the first place Rangers. The Bruins got out to a rough start and went down 2-0 early in the game forcing Claude Julien to call a timeout. The Bruins seemed to get their act together and put together two goals to tie the game. However, in the third period Marian Gaborik scored which forced the Bruins to answer. With under 10 minutes to go in the game Tyler Seguin led the rush up ice and David Krejci notched his 17th goal of the season. However, several seconds later the Rangers answered with a goal of their own(a bad goal by Tim Thomas’ standards) and the Bruins were not able to answer as they lost their second straight.
The Bruins need to find their game before the playoffs. Although the Bruins expect Horton and Peverley to be back in the lineup you can never be sure with injuries in today’s NHL. In the meantime the Bruins need to simplify their game, last year they relied on their defense to help win games and it looks like they need to get back to this philosophy. My three points for the Bruins to get back on track are:
If the Bruins can get back to their old ways they definitely have a legitimate chance of being repeat champions. They have some more skill than last year but have maintained the teams chemistry. They also may have an easy road in the playoffs as the Flyers continue to have goaltending problems and the Penguins are still without Crosby. The one team that can give them some serious problems is the New York Rangers. Hopefully for the Bruins they can once again find their post season magic
