Pete Sheppard starts this weeks show off recapping the Bruins come from behind win over the Lightning today at the Garden. Listen in for the breakdown, highlights and some great callers right here on WEEI.com
Red Sox Bench Coach Torey Luvollo joins the program to talk about Red Sox injuries and the MLB Replay process
Our number two Chris aligning with sports Sunday Sports Radio WEEI 6177797937. Then not all Red Sox some pretty much all Jon Lester threw the first hour lie detectors weighing in on the AT&T tax line on that will get to that just a moment. Out final round of the masters is going on a maturity people. Into getting into what is much science tiger. And without Phil as well he Mickelson showed up I think late Thursday night she flew in and Friday after energy is flied out. With Phil Mickelson. I he had a tough weekend are tough early going Richardson first round in a local guy Keegan Bradley struggled missed But there are some big games of the top the leaderboard some exciting. I young names of the Jordan's BT's twenty years old he's cash to win the masters I he'd be the youngest winner since 1979. LEB younger. Then the tiger was the first time you want it. And one of the things that really stood out to me is speaking with some people were down there this week to cover the toward talks and these young guys and it get back to tiger. The complete and water. Lack of off. Around around Tiger Woods to these guys are too young you think about twenty years old 21 years old with somebody like camera some would like walker. In somebody like Blix the Swedish guys and second right now and he's. He's like 28. You know some of these guys too young to really remember or at least have played with tiger against tiger. When he was hitting level like we never seen before the PGA tour earlier received since Jack. And they look at him now a Zagat shoot 77 on the weekends. Is that cats really contention anymore where is I mean Aaron I'm not old and your and all of you remember when. Final round tigers in the lead it was done forget about it I mean one year in the PGA YE Yang those big shots out late and ended up beating and yet that epic battle with Bob May. I nearly beat him in the PGA but it would for the most part just wasn't close he would get a lead and he was one of the best closers in the we'd seen in the sport. But it's just it's different now that's a different vibe. Around Tiger Woods and it's gone from seemingly a foregone conclusion that he would get to nineteen majors is seemingly foregone conclusion that he won't eat next year. Does play majors this year. Is give forty years old Jack won three. After he needs five Jack won three after forty to two of those were when he was forty and the masters in 986. Was kind of an out Larry's 46 years old. Tiger would be a hall of fame career from here on out five major championship all career to get in nineteen. I think it's interesting not only his fall from grace just as a player. In terms of winning majors the was in my opinion at least the best player on were last year he had five or six wins a torch to win major. But the bigger thing to me is just how some of these younger players perceive him do tiger as a contention it used to be regarded. The average stroke. The average round rather up a stroke in. In in the in the final round on Sundays when tiger was in contention real just kind of melted aged just. Folded around with a few exceptions mentioned Bob revealed in Nickels and it's good battles but. For the most part it was just tiger's world everybody else's playing for second they were on him Ernie Els just not Now is young guys just young enough to cocky enough and don't really remember that at least they didn't play through it. And they're saying how statute 75 on the weekends with what's not ID in the turn now but. I should be upon Sunday Bubba Watson very very likable guy. And I Jordan who were finding out a lot about trying to become the youngest masters winner a long time quick birds update we'll get back to the calls against 617779. 7937. Cordially NC DM IA's doing great to get the good news on him that was definitely a concern that you know DM IAA was. Out I got hit looked like in the that it from I thought it was illegal but not dirty if that makes sense I don't think there was intent to injure there. It was just one of those times you're trying to make a hockey play get the principal point contact up higher and you won it. So I thought it was an illegal hit not a dirty hit but by a help not the that you concussion translated to on the ice Thursday that part we don't know just yet. But Patrice Bergeron it sound like is fine I he missed the third period yesterday that would would have been a huge concern. I outside to go. There's not too many guys you point to and say this more important to the bees and Bergeron two way player in hockey this year. Obvious he's good according to coach Julianne and Chris Kelly looks like still day to day with that back injury so some. Relatively speaking. Minor bumps and Bruce is going into the Stanley Cup Playoffs but you know these guys especially Alec Bergeron if he could be on the ice on Thursday against the red he's going to be there. I HTT tech slide is 37937. It's like grab a few of these real quick a one Dexter says eight times over David Price let Lester walked. While you make Casey price a better pitcher at this stage of his career early younger I can cost more money. And now your bidding against everybody else you've got the cost control guy. Housing cost control we get the guided the under your control rather. The of the exclusive negotiating window with wants to stay here to guide it. As more in depth track record in the post season to sign him. And that point it's not a knock on price and gives great pitcher. But if you're looking at what you can do it even easier than that that will save you some money relative to what price can get on the open market signed last. I know detector can you imagine having Stanton in Boston did it forty plus homers easy architecture from western mass. Two words about prospects Daniel yep they can go hard the other way. I another one here says agree with you order percent top of the rotation guys talk about Lester innings a year post seasons died. Given the cash over five years five for one and should get it done. And out finally is Lester stats are comparable to average career he walked away from 244 million Lester has been better than Homer Bailey and look at the contract. That he just signed a few textures telling me the gets four clocked at. Well evening parade for a UConn for the championships I assume the men and women together out both of them winning the national title. Yes as tougher as Turkey's but happy for Kevin Ollie who now is the next. Hot coaching named to go from college to the end beauty after eight seasons. But undefeated in the NCAA tournament ally guys can say that are at six or 77797937. is in New Jersey he's up next When then. Just try to not cute bit Ali thank you and I can't believe that a low ball. Jon Lester like they don't agree that you like a side impact by one and whatever argument sake. We have been out of my. But you see a lot of contracts for your team that have gone got into the contract stratosphere and some of them have really worked out so well. But for a number like dapper Lester what he's so willing to stay. I agree I was surprised. When I saw what the number was at the end of spring training where the Red Sox know Lester broke off toxin seems like a a low ball contract terms of dollars in a low ball contract thirty years. definitely. god I G I mean lucky probably let out a little bit like that way radio reluctant I had. Yeah I mean yeah I'm with you thanks to the fall being a former yankees fans perspective. They're never shy about spending dollars. That Lester contract is makes sense and I've said this a few times. Because just getting back to this point I do think my gut still tells me they get a Don. Gut feeling they still get this contract done because I hate candidate it player just wants too much just wants to be a Boston too much. You back going to be here at the expense of taking deal it's foolish and a four year seventy to eighty million dollar contract before which. At ball way below market terms years below market terms the average annual There's no upside here it sounded like a Red Sox blown away with a give you four years but here's point six million a year. Which is probably more than you gonna get I guarantee each and every year on the open market that it could at least. I still think Lester would walk away from crystal he'd say no. But I could look at that is saying the Red Sox in good faith effort to try to. Do with last year what they've done with other guys which is over pay an average annual dollars but try to take that discounted terms of the number years seventy. I can't say that. I can't see it as they came under years came under dollars 6177797937. Bill isn't busted up next they've built. They would subject. who visual. You know what about. You guys keep in the world. Could together okay. guys they look at the guys renewed deal if everybody involved. Make him have the option to. Who boarded deals rivals ordered to the guys will. Make it work. So real simple. So three years of his make sure Israelis and three years seventy million. And then assuming he stays healthy another two years at how much. Ordered me at all. That would come out to volley at 5110. About then you know what would actions. YouTube. 120. It was cute guys so. Yeah It it it any guaranteed dollars sport. That that's just not gonna work for the players work for last. Well hope what works right now what made two big guy a two year deal seven million. With a guarantee. Appeared to remain nimble. The two more years of targeted what are enviable. Well let's get. That that that the five year 120 million dollar contract. Where. OK I guess that that's reasonable but I mean you if you're guaranteeing the money that it's not three years in the two years to five years. And yet we could what three years didn't work out three years it will be created numerous believe that you develop very animated. You know. Yeah I mean I like well. I guess I can't get what you in there you know again trial period so to speak at three year seventy million dollar. You know test blown the CP states LP and see if he still producing. The news saying guaranteed fifty million after that which is five for once money. Why would John again you'd think about it okay hometown discount know we heard the operator gets excited about it. to get past the idea of a hometown discount meeting complete insanity. Seventy million dollars even over a three years average dollars a lot of money. But it still. 50% of what can get out in the open market. You know why would I take seventy million guaranteed even for three years when I could just double that six years guaranteed at 140 million. You know six I can get that extra seventy million dollars over three more seasons just to go out in the open market. That would be a great team friendly kind of idea but Lester were being eyed Joseph and Wakefield once the way HL. What they've done so much for the in the you know 78 years. That burning up I don't know are already up at. I agree with UN and the injury concern for me is that they're now we are talking about Clay Buchholz we'd be having added I merely different conversation. But with Lester even a year it was bad in 2012. Still pitch to plus innings. Yeah I mean you don't get a picture wondering about that party and you don't hate you guys brought there get a going to be offered. And I are I think I really like the attitude that you just want the behavior I don't understand why the Internet situation black. We're not talking about giving the guy a 140. I'm not all that with the amount of money more book like the object audit. Well he had I think the Red Sox kind of Hewitt in the regard as well that's why I wasn't completely floored when he said OK if we here opera was the most that they had. I'll put out there by the time they broke off negotiations. But I'd be and neighbor of 400. Yell now and a and a big. Average annual value a Ford seventy for is an opera that you know the players get a that's an opera that it's designed to be turned out. Yeah independent though they looked like but based on the yacht I don't know it. All the the PR stunt getting negative PR because I think I had tickets ridiculous they have any Lester did lie to me if he blocks away at the end of the day. And and the Red Sox look back and in the end flick back and say. And they could of they could negotiate they could out of spring training but the only opera percent beat the teams the only one's gonna look bad that's an. Aerial my opinion darker integrated you know integrated I'm sorry you know it made it. It's the same age and it did Dustin Pedroia has I can't think of his name off my head to similar Pedroia as we negotiated down discounts the This situation it is thought here we cannot I mean update completely done park are now completely. It sounds like till the end of the season got to do have an exclusive negotiating window. Went thanks for the college and they've exclusive negotiating window with Lester. After the season is over and that it's free agency. But you know in my mind even if the Red Sox were come back with a big number in the fall. But it even gets to. Reagents even gets to the point were other teams are our ticketing contracts are offers a Lester you're probably spending more than what you have spent. It just get the deal done now. You just avoid any possibility any any chance did you rate in the another team another suitor and unlike David Ortiz we can't you know we had a debate about Ortiz is going to be even a market that is. And I thought maybe lot of people but absolutely now. That's fine with Lester there's no debate right. I mean when I can debate the fact that it thirty year old going on 31 year old lefty it's starting pitcher with a great post season track records that market. We know that that's the case there's going to be money thrown at this. So you have the opportunity. To not only negotiate exclusively with him up or you even touch or even Free agency. It to get an offer on the table to sign this guy if they're not able losing the player beat. I signing into a deal that maybe goes outside their comfort zone because now they worry about free agency not to worry about other offers them. You could have made a better fate in my mind decide than these reported figures in at these numbers are right you know he's not taking. It's an it's designed to be refused to keep brought out their deceit it's a hit proper. I don't think organ necessarily buy that I think that this mark baseball banner that. That they and as long as you're in line with keeping Lester some cables don't want that at any high price and that's fine that's your opinion I disagree by. It any band that wants Jon Lester back is valued at his team. It and understand just what the market is looking for the seventy's at It's an insult. Text messages committed 37937. AT&T like. Texas is Red Sox have too many pitches in the system they had the upper hand. Now that it's does its thing is too many pitchers in this is have a lot of starting pitching depth they have a lot of potential. As allowed by hope and is better than Jon Lester obese Kerr shot why not. But you know what you have in Jon Lester. You don't know what you have yet Henry and that goes to my point of if you're gonna have some of these cost control pre arbitration arbitration guys up. Lester got the money to do. He could have a a lot of money coming off the books over the next read of where years. Yet a pitcher John Lackey threw for 500000 dollars on next season. In NA and it not a salary cap sport but it sport I care about a 189 million dollar luxury tax threshold for the at least they're from last. I that to take three years the market's already at five to six. years as Lester won't get 140 on the open market I disagree I think he will. I the Texas is give Lester one of these two deals. Or for a hundred or seven and 12611. if the offer candidate for for a hundred then I would say you know the Sox made an effort. They made shots try to sign him and take battled down discounted terms of the year when it for par seventy it. and a few text is going back to a couple calls as a wide world Lester take three year deal and a trial period. We can get five years guaranteed and I completely agree this is an interesting text here get this one before the break. I you know I'm not entirely sure why everyone has the phrase 110 for five I should get it done because he had no idea. What will get it done in theory. Yet that would be a hometown discount. 111 for five years an option six and eight I have no way of knowing. Whether that would get it done so he's looking at 5110. I just keep coming back that number because I look at. What the market would probably and keep going back to guys like Cole Hamels you know reasonable comparable to last year's regular season numbers I see six. In 144. EC 23 and change per year so take roughly that average annual value. 43 in his case it's going to take a year back it five years old hometown discount. But he's not leaving and and the billions of dollars That's why I come back to that number I'll get it done I have no idea what I'd be willing to go to say. 150 over 520 million a year probably. Start pushing diablo or we'll talk. You see what the number but a number I have in mind. And a lot of people have in mind they think 22 million a year twenty to 22 million a year years and college day. Five years a 10210 million dollars 6177797937. The point though I had no idea we don't know. What gets I can tell you this though. Ward seven he doesn't get it on told you that before knowing. That that was the for the Jon Lester turned out we get back to your calls coming up next we'll talk war. A Red Sox get to the Bruins as well and what touch and the Celtics before the end of the show as well get to 4 o'clock Chris Blondie with Sports Radio. WE yeah.
Villani doesn't understand the Red Sox' approach to the negotiations with Jon Lester for an extension. Sure, you have to start somewhere, but their offer was so off base, it was almost insulting. He wonders if the Red Sox truly want Lester in the future and if they don't, WHY!?!
The Red Sox will have the proverbial log jam in the outfield when Shane Victorino returns - what should they do? Send Jackie Bradley back down, make a trade or something else...Butch and Buck discuss.
Transcript - will not be 100% accurate
-- Bob good afternoon everybody want a fantastic. Day for the Boston Bruins mailman Jack Edwards did -- -- caught -- know a little while ago. Maybe the most impressive win of the year for the Bruins it really was down two nothing in the first spirited storming back in the second career with a couple of goals and amend seventeen seconds. And then really really are clawing and scratching their way to a great victory that great goal by Marchand. After it was cross checked probably could easily could have been a penalty and so are many other nights but there are many other days but not today but. As easy jog at the reference data backup guy pitched all of a sudden it's a tool unload per drawn nearly a three on one stayed. Drag his leg stayed -- side gets the power play goal the game winner for two with 216 left. And the Bruins come from behind to beat Tampa Bay today three -- -- there's so much to discuss it this hockey game it's we're gonna get to all of that. Away from you guys especially throughout the game six point seven. 7797937. Texas 37937. And also you can -- be at peace -- Three -- six if you showed desire. Wow beach with new until 7 o'clock tonight judge enjoy on your side of the glass or pollution today. BJ dream will join us from the guard has welcomed WEEI dot com get his thoughts for men. Oh let's begin with it didn't start off really that well for the Bruce today case you work in case you missed it. Did you -- it. Where worry. This is a great one then start off great throw. As -- Andre jumped out and I met amazingly would be a got a couple power play goals a stamp goes said one. Just 12 point one seconds another power play up him up one nothing or Goldman didn't really get do you the it was kind of hello almost it was a horrible goal but it wasn't there wasn't a great northern great shot by -- gross but really I've I'm not sure. Oh Goldman was a little bit out of position there to give back to your post inside it in time. And then a little bit later on. Al skill on with a power play goal. So Tampa Bay started off -- first they -- bread on the power play didn't score after this but they scored two power play goals on two shots. So that's you know that's so that's the way began though for the Bruins Marchand had a had a chance midway through the first period. Puck -- went right across the goal line couldn't finish. That he had does Seidenberg crashing in the -- yacht -- never came back penalty by the way than the boarding penalty started to board today the first happen again was boarding. Boarding boarding boarding boarding boarding and in my opinion raw horrible calls all of them. All horrible calls both for and against the Bruins are bad calls today about appreciated by the refs and then he had Lucic. With another bad boarding call they point seven seconds left. In the first period so the Bruins now we want to -- within the first period down to nothing they're going to be back on the -- really kill you again. Timber was not playing great team defense in the first period get to the second period. But I'm sure Kuo gave -- body downplayed in the post -- to -- gave them a little bit of a tongue lashing onshore. It between the first and second period man the Bruins came up client. It just an unbelievable -- on the power play after they killed off the -- after they killed off the penalty. What shift by Doug Hamilton who booed just made an unbelievable save at the Blue Line. And that set up -- Tyler say didn't this fourth goal is -- two goals and five assists by the -- in his last seven games. And their first home power play goal all year do you believe that we talked about that during the week ago on the big show Michael. Off personal power play goal of the year. Cut the lead to two water system fantastic. Doug Hamilton -- -- assists -- -- genitalia. Can't say enough how great Doug Hamilton played on that ship and played well overall today. As as did many of the brewers at least were released one after his anyway. And then again two goals and minutes seventeen seconds so it fits the first more than seventeen. 56 mark at 1521 Beverly. What -- unbelievable pass from a Quaid. -- at the right point just inside a wide. Sees several laid down low on the left side fires a pass to warm bed just terribly just unleashed great one tiger bull and boom. And was goal to try to -- at two. So we started zero. Midway through midway through the second period. Obviate that gets -- -- every also get the bad to get the boarding call a -- go back on the power play and was reporting on Randolph or kill warned. Ridiculous. It's. And that what that one great shape today that who drove in May was ensemble week. It that's on that particular penalty rob them for about seven -- almost not quite when black with a great save. It was a great -- And then head and then if they need to say that he had a Bergeron. And and and -- at the end of the second period nearly connecting after it after the vote to -- up yet another power play. -- acting but I go into the locker room. Tied at two a gutsy effort by the Bruins in the second period third period brood of 61 and one when tied after 20. It was just there is -- a great third period to watch. Went to sixteen with 216 left after stick -- came I'm. Several times tonight on that on the on the Europe while abroad on the power play several shorted bids socially and Russia's good Russia's. By the tip of bay lightning. They couldn't stand -- broken and a three Ontario. There and miss the net in this we shoot an -- huge as a ricocheted around. A liberal -- break out in the wash shot took a cross check a -- when the shot probably should have been called a penalty I'm glad it wasn't called. Martial arts arguing with the winds and -- as you skate back up the ice slowly. Barely stays on side instead of being a 211 like it's almost a three on one per drug makes a sweep custom watchdog bank. Good big big Toronto and the Bruins. -- don't hold off rug gets pulled in the final a couple of minutes but they hang on. And when the game three to a great great come from behind win today are for the Boston Bruins. Over the Tampa Bay Lightning. They approved a fourteen to want to Daily -- now by one point. Over Montreal Montreal is playing tonight at home against the Pittsburgh Penguins so at least for now the Bruins have be. I believe in the Eastern Conference by themselves these were few hours anyway of course they play Montreal tomorrow night. That's a 730. What an absolute it's just it's -- game and faceoff face -- face off once again. Bergeron was just outstanding today he -- sixteen of the 25 faceoff the bronze overall. 137. Had this face off edge in wins 37 to twenty. Over Tampa Bay and and it's just such a huge debt a lot of people tend to ignore it. They're not there and and are not like hockey purist what really is a phrase softly to possession to -- lead to you know other opportunities in Britain and scored. Huge huge government -- we're doing this most of the year. They have done great. In the faceoff circle Leo great you Bergeron Kelly Campbell who -- I would do would do a terrific job before with a healthy scratch today so open golf -- played. -- wanna win three to two -- a Bruins were 2.5 and probably get their first two home power play goals of the year. -- bay scored their first two possessions but then after six possessions after that -- play Bruins were back to their usual a great penalty killing style. A lot to talk about look at -- three guys who were at the game 61777979237. -- at 37. 937. As he can tweet at you ship three to six. 603 says impressive Wendell what's going on with the baseball play killing while it Eric I mean let's got to cut him a little bit of slackening in erupt over 95%. And in other and it didn't want to go I really do today no one could say it was was still questionable. Bad goal by -- in the first -- -- -- it was a great shot and get me wrong but they go dog willow put out position. But overall. I would I we get too carried away to -- a great job accounted. After the first period to shut down the Tampa Bay power play. Six other chances and don't mean a couple of couple key stops he approved by the way to three and one with a 2.5 two goals against can't ask much more than that. From your backup goalie. Well look the butterfly and a walk in the locker room called was addressing the team between the first and second period. Don't forget I mean abroad basically -- talked about the so after the game in the Bruins basically spent authority this game kilowatt penalty supported in just about. So it was a it was a great effort and once again even as we talked about what -- on the big show yesterday. The the Bruins penalty killing. It comes up we had several other chances against today several you know decent scoring opportunities they were doing that all year long. Go back to play well put Doug Hamilton Doug Hamilton's effort. Second third effort to keep the puck didn't this is all hovering on the Blue Line. -- great recent he has -- -- the first goal. Outbreak jugular sister as well -- I told a rush tell you earlier this week about Sega Sega is becoming. Just a fantastic two way hockey player I like I said he's I think he finally got him if you watched him the last 45 games. You can really see the transformation he is not afraid to go on the corners anymore he's not afraid to mix it up a little bit. Which is what we wanted to -- become a lot tougher. For coming up trouble growing up right before rise. Yes the little acorn that becomes the -- This Omar once that strikes. But absolutely yup a fantastic way and gets him off about. The last goal a mark in my in my publicly about December for martial art. Marchand has four goals during the six game winning streak the Bruins have. Fourth straight game winning goals four straight. Game winning goals. During the six game winning streak that is outstanding. Absolutely outstanding ended. It's again a credit to Claude Julien and the entire Bruins team. All of these guys for not panic being at home down two nothing. After the first period to the Tampa Bay Lightning lots of guts go one on. At the garden lately between the Bruins in the Celtics I mean it's just it's just amazing. But. You gotta give you can give props that to this whole team for not panic may never quit and you could tell the first spirited and or don't they were down two nothing that several opportunities. -- some opportunities. They just couldn't they couldn't finish. But they certainly look like a different team coming on the second period 6177797037. -- 3379370. Tweet at. Thought about the game your reaction looks in the car -- today and WEEI would -- hey look -- They -- earlier. Married yet I guess one thing that there -- about my -- dole. Yeah. Nice very nice appreciate it thanks for the call -- I was doing the same -- believe me I was doing the same -- six -- 7797937. Texas 37937. Broke cover behind that went through -- today at the -- sixth straight win. Six straight into the breeze -- some of the game winning goal. I was outstanding Bergeron was outstanding in the faceoff circle winning sixteen to 25 again the Bruins. A winning the majority of face -- again today 37 to twenty over Tampa Bay. Just they did just continued. To be impressive. Sagan. Scores his fourth of the year is there a couple goals and five assists in his last seven games. The pass from equates apparently that might be one of the Swedish passes we've seen this year I was just it was it was fantastic. Aptly -- tests it was what it was almost like in basketball backdoor play. Iowa guard at the less like the Bradley would go back -- action was absolutely. A brilliant brilliant. Local press. I played out one point -- -- one point I thought but to be on the Bruins sweater or stand for boarding and reporting calls left and right. In this game batter -- appreciating him there there's some there's some hits I mean. Especially wanna pull the shot I thought. Which just it was just stunned it was just. -- look a lot worse and it was and he knew it was going to crunch -- And is still in the so called the the so called but. I think eighty double cycle some back calls like a couple bad penalties -- they put on the that there were called against -- -- Ross let that stuff kind of -- -- When watching the game winning goal again you -- Marchand who clearly was crushed -- And because he was so what delayed. You know getting adopt a little bit. Really after step -- -- Donna mr. -- is the reason why. Go to -- because Marshall behind the plate. Allow the 2113 on almost don't want to develop helps the funny part it was nearly offside. -- -- -- drag leg that goodness and edited and -- as I almost thought there were going to and they didn't. There and the birth drug from that beautiful pass. With 216 ago Marchand eleventh goal of the year Bruins went three to two. And it's. Just been vindicated watch as Boston nor -- are so well coached they're sold disciplined. And they never get to tie they never get too low on the go Alex among the teams are here that we we praise -- -- when that when they're waiting. Gotta love their first place in the east now by appointing a Montreal playing tonight at our at home and it's Pittsburgh and of course tomorrow night. Very rare Sunday night hockey game at the garden brutal military in the Montreal Canadians that should be a dandy. 61777. -- 7937. Texas 37037. Drug cannot be at peace jumped three to six quick break quarterback go more -- your phone calls right here -- Sports Radio WEEI. Great season. I -- Hamilton's drive sales. -- -- -- take this savings. Bob boom. Out of -- said but I'm being myself but that's just me six -- -- have a several nice seven that in 37 always get a JD. Jack Edwards and that's in the -- Berkeley as well today a great job killer on the studio. Along with the Barry Petersen an outstanding job today boys over there three guests at Texas 37 37. And it between yet he ship three to six in those two goals as Jack told you in the minutes seventeen seconds got the Bruins back on track they tied the game until. There was it's just a fantastic hockey game today and in the third period Marchand with a game winning goal -- turn out with a game winning goal. Which -- sixteen left. Just after the brought to killed off a power play and Marchand breaks in what Bergeron a 211. Air -- -- scores his eleventh he's got six goals or four goals during the six game winning streak four straight game winning goals. To point 777 I'd severed -- a 37 Texas 37 and 37. Back to talk to go to -- -- until seven tonight Blake were riled up next here on W Iowa Blake. They -- I don't know you're. On -- day another good win -- solid team effort. I've called Colin because I'm just not sold on Chris fought hard just don't think he had anything to the team are missing it may -- you can convince me know why you play was moved up to tape audio line -- But I'm just missing one block offers his team right now I think in August Pauly got really -- the truth I think you look it's a much more. But I like -- -- all they know the listen. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Pork -- may be. One good game the way I beat them when they gave -- had a pretty decent game. And maybe you know the period but he has been in I'm not I'm not surprised -- honest with -- the most surprised they don't play seven minutes and seventeen seconds today. And I said on Friday I think his playing time is gonna get limited more limited limited. And whatever they do make a deal -- surely you always gonna make a deal coming up well whether it's Albertson a three year or waste out of Florida whoever it is I think -- can be -- got to go. Well David Taylor surely is possibly gonna pull a trigger on the trade what you know. What variable to the director of the sidewalk I mean this -- missiles solid top to bottom of this the same guys that won the cup basically two years ago bought. I can't see them breaking up -- to -- get an operation nor are rare. Why don't open -- to break up the nucleus to go get one of those two guys. It's it's depends on. You know it depends on what you're on what -- we give up on me I don't know if we got to get. Those guys for nothing that's for sure but maybe that you get away with that you know minor league picks in the draft pick it's it's possible. Miss putts it's possible but I'm with got one assumed -- now -- the -- -- dramatic but I wanna might see another a score on this team. Right I just think maybe Chris who live and office -- legend you know -- give -- a shot it's time to move water is not like it's it's a real small lineup. Well I would I would hope that there's not sentimentality. You know imports -- I was so I'm still surprised at times I don't think it happened today. But about the time he's gotten on the power play more than anything so I don't know -- -- I don't go -- -- coach sees something in practice because you know we don't see it. By give -- -- great effort but certainly to me today seven minutes seventeen seconds see at least a one timer and Bruno on the ice today and and a -- surprised. What you post on the PPI think possibly you know you go back to be as well enough Pedroia was struggling but there are. You know the coach also -- talk with a look at the guy and always superstar may -- -- -- someone -- and practiced and you know we're just out -- and I hope translates -- I really don't get all -- get a good pedigree but he's just not showing. Well what it's gonna take -- to skip all of a championship team and beat -- that -- be a debate. Are Blake your thoughts offense from gulf. And other have been other than that really there really hasn't been a lot to complain about at all with the approach to remember it -- there really isn't -- mean. He would be a frustrated at times on the power play their comprehension and Iverson to do today to get two power play goals. Out of five chances in the first two home power play gross. Last few mini gel to score public go home today the brewers but. I can live with that it was a penalty killing unit continues to do would -- -- struggle there early. It's something that we don't see awful but it does happen you know locker kill off either can't be at 96% every single game. What they were -- free you know Tampa Bay got a couple. Goals by Goldman early. -- in the first period but after that they settled down -- real good. A real well. Even stretches the first prayer that played -- -- play well just in there's a chance to get at least one goal. That one -- border crossing the crease and it imported and got a couple good -- a couple my saves as well. Did you watch 777979376. Was 77797937. Texas 37937. There you can tweet be as well IP ship three to six. Seven him once says. Is interesting. Don't tell the I don't talk to your coworkers about -- they were all disappointed in him. I don't know what that is all I heard last week oh I don't know was on the station center disappointed Sagan. And maybe they I don't understand he's raised the average to point game of the last us the last seven games. Just to go to -- -- two goal to go from five assists in his last seven games and more importantly because you know the points are gonna come with this guy. There and I can't speak with a colleague to I don't know how much of the games there watched I'm assuming -- watch that but if you can't see the transition to becoming a much better two way hockey player. -- there's no there's no question about it to me it's night and day from last year I ticket to come a little while. To get going this year because you know plane that know what she style in Europe when it breaks and bigger and nobody really hits anybody. So even though he was in pretty good game shape I'm sure your -- work -- in an implied in Europe. A much Europe you know. I mean it took a couple weeks to get going to go like three weeks to get going to. But as far in the transition becoming a better two way argument is he's not afraid got a mix it up a little bit he's in the corners he's on board she's you know he's -- and and what a great job and be continued you know appointed him to come like you said seven points in the last. His last seven games so I am not worried about him whatsoever Doug Hamilton continues just to be. Today today -- might have been his best game yet. What he did. Absolutely fantastic. The way he kept of the pocket in. The Blue Line liberal -- power play which led to for. Preaches goodness this is well but really it was all Doug Hamilton on that shift. That did so much that allows -- to score that his fourth goal of the universe power play goal that got the Bruins go and and then just seconds later was probably scored and that great pass and just so I had a marvelous pass from Quaid. And just one timed it. -- fully outstanding 6177797937. That's reporter goes to -- like -- run up next you're only EIA's Dave. Oh yeah I don't know you. All right. But I do oil and once again by -- growing. I tell you were unbelievable. I mean everybody really was. As I can appreciate how a professionally word. Beat down to nothing in the first period -- are you felt about ST but I didn't feel like they're gonna get blown out I really thought this -- been so disciplined all your I thought they scored the next all the direct threat. They never did have a great shot to win it. Right you could -- -- Vicario was almost like. Every time I walked Joseph. And I if you go to not go on everybody that they -- told my -- pressure that I wrote it down to not go -- Obituary lawyers would come -- doing -- -- and made bad situations ideology so believable. It's in a slow things I'm impressed with a lot of people you know don't talk about a lot which is you know face offs -- to date 37 to twenty -- huge Bergeron and I know you listen to yourself receive well I appreciate the call but. And thank you reaching the point where you are listen you go to liberated them yes going to you don't go that by now Bergeron sixteen to 25 and a faceoff circle of Abrams 37 -- twenty. Overall in the -- In the circle just -- just stuff sitting there when today three to -- their first place in the east. Macho place tonight against against a Pittsburgh and the Brooklyn Marat against Montreal -- -- Connecticut up next here on WEEI Steve. Pete I just wanted to say I'm sure we are but -- all day I didn't get a chance to -- game. Normally I'd be real social point unified video outcome but you're so excited over the bailout shouldn't -- and I can't wait to go home and watched a replay of the 20. -- you have to do you have maybe even the first spirit down to nothing distilled has some interesting. You're going to be going to be amazed that somebody adjusting calls the reps through with the Bruins -- and Tampa Bay it was boring boring boring boarding boarding. And I don't think any of them were legitimate cause. But -- got really into the second and third periods. They were it was one of the most entertaining games of the -- I think we're I think their best one of the year to be honest with -- was a fantastic game you're gonna love it watched Doug Hamilton. Watch -- watch all the face -- one absolutely unbelievable. Well I'd say your passion and your excitement is so well addictive I really I. I appreciate it great show thank you very much. The actual logic what kind words it's what 777 -- seven that -- 37 Ralph and animus you guys I -- go -- for a couple more. I'm here until 7 o'clock or two right now we're talking about the Bruins or some other stuff on the tables well the Red Sox and patriots and Flacco to talk about whatever you'd like. A -- restructuring the contract all that stuff. But I mean other hi anybody can not be excited right now about this Boston Bruins hockey team their first place. Well this moment in the Eastern Conference -- Borger Paul calls after this. -- up until seven Sports Radio WEEI. Did you watch 77797937. -- 37937. To be at peace -- three. June 6 of the guys texted at -- greeted me at said. -- -- -- Blackhawks -- -- and it wouldn't beat them easily well I don't know what knuckle I would say the brewers beat the Blackhawks easily. But it would all have to worry about that at all hopefully if they meet in the Stanley Cup final -- war about than. Then maybe by the end black -- would have -- -- Maybe the -- -- of -- -- the first was within one again last night. In overtime against Columbus 043 register they are on the an unbelievable role but. What about the Boston Bruins are also wanna -- -- a really good -- themselves with six straight wins -- some of another game winner today. Four straight up four goals on the six game winning streak all the game winning goals two point 7779. Severed on a threesome discrete chip until seven. Let's get back through phone route to graduate next UAW I Ralph. Great -- every door and a great that we. Could get this straight Scott's imagination can mean it's enjoyable team but number one it's not blowing things out of awarded as you'll go -- air -- nine to one game. It's got a good club but you know -- kind of different situation and a lot of -- changed a couple of years ago they -- connection they should have made a move it did not make a hole. To put them over the top and leave it perfectly when lookup -- -- know this tour has dealt and you know whatever they do cannot treating. Are you open and that triple actually so cool shouldn't write well quit pushing for around. Below Pierre get that -- look forward to get this guy be skeptical that really gonna make it different and unique view this secret because. They're already built that's not true that the control -- -- not a lot structural or what the team's built it. And you get to a championship level -- sport -- minute how long and -- I mean I mean that oracle and they'll always have. Or around a relatively ugly as you sound like it sounds like it's kind of a condescending tone taken about this team like the not winning sex you know Gloria. I mean -- W said teams while one in 91 that's not true. -- -- -- -- one -- -- -- not -- -- little -- not doing those guys. Who does that mean they -- six games in a -- there -- 2:1 place in the Eastern Conference. I agree with you I think they're gonna make a move while the British -- businessman pat. You know he's gonna make a move whether it's out -- every year or somebody. They're gonna they're gonna do they're gonna do something. But I I don't know how you cannot be incredibly impressed with what you have seen from Williams to every. -- that it can I do believe we are thoroughly impressed with the -- okay great. But there's other team's fear that they had put -- too late to get this. Well let me ask you to do because that's what exactly sure sure that this -- you want to go out get a high where these guys can make it'd be capped at -- 02 men were there to duped. I'm not exactly sure all the pools. Well I got a lot of Cali -- seller just -- into the thomas' contract whatever whatever they do what's not going to be into the they're not going out and they're gonna get the you know don't match -- -- like that the terrorism in all monster contract -- then a guy a guy like Briere and Alfredsson of Ottawa in old doesn't -- still really not -- a whole lot of signs of stumbling and -- lost today but. Pursuing Al banged up they are they've they've basically they won like 517. But it was a guy Albertson every year or that guy -- down enough for a Dole's talk about -- -- -- be are pretty good trip here doesn't have great numbers down there but those guys are gonna break the bank on yet so that and they are the kind of guys that they are the kind of guys are gonna helped put this team over the top there's really not a lot. In my opinion that they need to do. No but of course -- in this situation that they saw this guy that they -- all of my god we looked at Jewish people now know that can contract wouldn't make it a lot of money. I put this spears situation with the sort would look at this like I seen him do -- decades. When it was also a couple would never make that won't curtail production quota in this situation could get don't support their. I look they've got to wait like I can locust yellow star that brought. Why don't we look closely you can smell it. Due to everything you toured tocchet you know what I just could not -- for -- with -- -- -- -- My point was because it's already built -- already your championship caliber and it's you can nickel hole. Do it but I hope that I know they hope they don't say look we -- this guy -- -- six -- -- -- look at your. But we don't wanna pay up that kind of money I hope that they do great that -- decision grip it's been about money. All right Ralph I could -- tell his mom I'm sure pretty surely will make him move sooner rather later radical become. Bill will be made before the trading deadline of a ripple through just like three weeks before the start of the playoffs 617. 7797937. -- up Paulo Westfield -- WI Paul. I mean you're married to -- -- while doing. And you get a get a lot out of this sort of learn quick or you're welcome comments -- remember how people were bringing that back up Brian. And that's something that you car strategy. Or philosophy. You deploy about people that. I'm living in the past it sort of goes some -- fit they say that. Checking guessing and look back. Are not a -- yet. But slow slow slack. And then some that we can result can look and laugh about it Beijing tonight yet it I want know you thought about. What does that have to do with the Bruins games today. More importantly what about the -- but I mean that that's what's on your mind is that is Tim Thomas. No no no no -- mind it was done the other show you start talking about it accidentally move the -- and we. Oh go like millions before -- I don't know whether George talked about Israel show going on but this one I don't know it's it's once a 7797937. Texas 37. Now three severed. C'mon let's get a lawyer for some people -- the game and how you felt the body just is just a plethora of incredible place today up by the Bruins at both events offensively and defensively. Some bad -- mitigate the I would the only other thing I love it was a beautiful thing. That happen it's just radio thing about Doug Hamilton today. That was very impressive he took some Lex I mean he's got belted. Got belted twice in this game. -- Thompson got him early in the third period over in the corner and Hamilton to his credit got got right up. Are right up the kickoff propel the about six minutes later. And and also. They had it was a cut -- had a great open ice hit Jeff it was up to kill that there was weapon to kill that penalty. And Hamilton comes out of the box. And then guy he's he's got the part look like we might -- shot at a breakaway but -- we. Just say absolute. Beautiful open -- -- -- that you just don't see that much anymore the NHL that was an absolute thing of beauty. Drug he took his -- today Hamilton -- took a civil which they got it got right back governors and there are some great. Plays in this game from both sides today six point 77797937. Texas 379372. In the championship three to six. Welcome back right back to your phone calls -- a couple mobilize right now also gonna hear from DJ being -- WEEI dot com he was that the game today at the garden gets -- get his thoughts as well.
