Red Wings 2, Bruins 0

Last night, the Bruins finally broke their Win-Loss-Win-Loss pattern that has defined their 2009-2010 season.  The bad news?  They finally had back-to-back losses.  The worse news?  They were also shutout in back-to-back games.  Chris Osgood had his 50th career shutout, and I don’t think many of them were easier than last nite. The 2-0 loss to Detroit made painstakingly clear that the Bruins are sorely missing Marc Savard and Milan Lucic, as they were never really in this game after the Wings took a 2-0 first period lead on goals by Henrik Zetterberg and Tomas Holstrom.  Again, the Bruins were 0 for 4 on the power play.  Not only did they not score on these PP’s, they hardly generated any pressure, let alone shots.  On the evening, Patrice Bergeron led the Bruins with four shots.   Meanwhile, Phil Kessel made his debut (3 weeks ahead of schedule) with the Toronto Maple Leafs sp-kessel-leafs and had ten shots on net in his season debut.  I really hope that the loss of Kessel does not have a larger impact on the Bruins offense than I anticipated.

So there’s not alot to cover here regarding the loss to Detroit.  But unless the B’s emerge from this slump soon, there could be plenty to worry about.


The Bruins start a four-game home stand Thursday nite against the new-look Canadiens.  Hopefully, the ‘new-look’ aspect will also apply to the Bruins.

    How come we can’t get players like that?
