Are back on a big show. Giving us information. I don't know how accurate it is what he's given -- information circle. Most say most of the producer for the day knows anything that -- we're waiting for we're waiting for Jack Edwards is gonna give us. A bit of hockey knowledge and try to explain what happened in the third period yesterday. But we used to get an inkling that things were about to go badly he. The Bruins got a second period it could see it coming in the second period especially towards me and then and I just had a bad feeling the third period and it just seemed a seam gas I know without using as an excuse proficient at. And don't worry guys we'll keep you updated on the latest Wes Welker information if anything happens. Oh we will let you know owned -- Jack average has brought you vibrant and smoke shop Boston private banking and by the city of Boston credit union Jack we've been talking about it. What the hell happened yesterday in the third period looked like the Bruins were gonna have a nice. Gutsy win over the Pittsburgh Penguins with food opening goal and -- an awful part potted -- happen. Termination circumstances first thought -- got to get that worked full credit for really bringing a relentless attack to influence it was creative it was determined at times it would desperate. It was so and -- -- -- force and it forced the broad into a lot of turnovers. The likes of which we don't often see from the team. They knew it was metal fatigue maybe was physical -- -- -- contributed to metal stakes. But that's no excuse you don't look every team -- back to back games Pittsburgh was just. Hungrier deeper. And stronger when it counted the most and and you gotta give something which credit for that you know from the broad perspective what this tells you that the the Bruins are not clearly the best team in the Eastern Conference. And not that anybody was swaggering into Pittsburgh thinking that but there are some issues at this came -- to resolve. And it's still got about three weeks to do it before the April 3 trading deadline. Jack they could get a sense I certainly -- less and -- the middle of the second period you can kind of see. Momentum shifting and the brewers -- or five shots on that in that period of time or certainly had a lot of quality chances then. I -- -- just outstanding got elected the gun on one particular oppose shot as well but. I had about a bad feeling going into the third period that they were they were just ran out of gas and other don't wanna use as an excuse. Bits of -- a bad turnovers in their own and obviously in but a distant in the legs were there at the end I was not surprised to be honest reason for the first time all year. I have a bad feeling with the third period last night. Yep and or play it sent -- there and you know it's accurate yet about Schilling we are. Saying it during our game coverage in and tweeting that the other girls hanging on and and you're you're at that -- the Pittsburgh was going to overwhelm them and it was just a matter whether or not to promote could run out the clock. But this is what happens when you don't. Completely pay attention of the system and in his post game interview -- -- would -- accord Julian was buries the that can -- like you know we just made too many mistakes earlier that Shiites who make passes we attempted passes we shouldn't try to make. We didn't have guys coming back hard enough we didn't get enough. Shot off when the opportunity was there we tried to make the extra pass double the senate seat. And you can go yeah a lot of pin this on one guy or one line -- Curricula and was a little bit disappointing last night. Nathan Horton had a chance to put the main reason girl and it would have been a death grip on the game but it would have been pretty darn close to it because Austin can play. Pretty reasonable shut down defense in the work aren't fit for it yet. A little bit more wide open a little earlier and now given the -- counterattack opportunity. Surprised a little bit Jack I was when when Pittsburgh took the lead to three to wipe I closed door called timeout there is -- as I thought there were right thought. He would call a timeout there may be wanted to play I get the first and second lines back up there but instead we saw a lot of the fourth line at the end. Yeah and that's part because he felt that. That was the most reliable lining up last night the cable line is an outstanding the last few -- they have. Delivered opportunities. They scored both of the goals. In the the game before this one up and a lot and not. They you know they've been doing the work they were expected -- you could be you know this season but hadn't done in the first dozen or so games so. You know I. I I don't question. -- lunch selection and I don't question the decision on whether or not to call timeout. It she knows that team better than anybody he is obsessed with with that team and not. You know that if you were worthy of being second death of those issues not second -- and by. He's he's got -- pulse pretty well and it. Well I wonder if you question as you look at Dennis Seidenberg last year this guy was terrific and I'm not just saying this because of the giveaway last night. But this year a little uneven from Seidenberg. And wanna recognize him at times. I was just a bad giveaway -- we -- the story it's a sign -- or did you disagree that you'd think he's done a good season and and I don't. They'll I think that Seidenberg performed below. Its capabilities and -- surprise and he that the flat spot for six or seven games now he's children. Inside coming out of it but. He's. He's really not played that consistent high level. That would come to expect a -- and whether or not that's because most of the time interprets like Elton. I don't know you know maybe he's. Over compensating and subway and that's getting a little bit off his game. But certainly when it when you got a guy. Your right who. -- -- lot NHL experience you know he doesn't entries are open right now. You probably -- -- a little bit extra striking and it's real low athletes perform best when. They can't just go with the flow rather than having you excuse conscious thought. Pain in the play it's not stating that these guys -- -- -- -- obviously they are like you don't wanna add an extra elements of that. And I'll let not making an excuse for Seidenberg and it's sort of speculating Esther. Well because they'd be right I'm an agreement were in that Seidenberg is not performed up to potentially get this. It Jack we -- you last week about the third line. And then almost immediately after this conversation -- maybe it was your fault maybe you made this move they have they waved Chris Bork and I have a theory here my theory is that. Maybe they missed on Chris -- or missed. How ready he was because they didn't really have. The training camp I don't care if they say it's a weeklong training camp if it's a weeklong training camp that means you don't have attorney can you think. Those things go hand in hand didn't have time to evaluate. The player as early as they thought they they should've. Well they know who years they had a pretty good look at the last few years she's been on the radar for a long time. And I don't think Chris -- is done at the National Hockey League player. At the same time. It's not that. Or in have a chance because. You know he's got the play in eighteen games eighteen games is actually. Longer than a lot cougars last in the NHL. -- that time. It wasn't so much just the one goal of the -- Christmas because you refer -- are able -- power play in the in the park it was more that is one was not clicking. And they were all deeply in mind when he's got weight to the -- -- You're minus six. And Chris will be the first got to tell you what satisfied with the level like. He's also working his tail off figure off the pot and get back on the plane so to speak. So you know like I I don't think we've seen the last war. Also one that's been the number one spot that the -- of looking -- two great. Several police got a pretty decent job there last year. But Yeltsin got 700000 dollar raise to go to -- date for when your contract. And the Bruins didn't feel that would sit in their salary structure and on the -- -- a prosecutor Orleans -- -- pretty good so there he made the read on that. Pull out wanting benefit. And and off he went so are drawn -- are broken just before lockout ended yet wait for that to -- Or court the next guy up and he couldn't get the job done an eighteen game. -- an awfully good -- forward by. Is not the coaches that are at least as far as what people in cities. You know at all -- that is terrific purpose player. Who can really help you in a lot of situations but I think the bullet or something more dynamic other third line and he's it'll provide at least at this point. -- we talked them last couple weeks two or three weeks about you know the emergence of Tyler -- as much better two way player -- I -- -- yeah I mean I respect Sidney Crosby allies -- all that crap. I understand that I also hate his guts in a lot of ways Connecticut does some things and I was dying last night first time I've ever seen Tyler Sagan actually pissed off. And I really thought for a second they might drop the gloves are delighted because I wouldn't blame the -- was great to see that kind of emotion out of Tyler -- Yeah. The last I got played the last couple times abroad does. Lost you know the Washington lots last night. We've observed expressions on -- space that we haven't seen before and its it's a growling nasty angry. You know really really key to -- and that's a good thing he's taking it very personally this year and you can see it in his play. And you know -- -- such as an excellent job like keeping the -- on its stake in. And saying you know what this guy making plays literally author's own goal line. And you know that is the reason that is offenses coming around because what he's involved -- -- all 200 feet. He is beginning to approach his potential. As a player and and now that's been the case you know what he's been great -- defense is so he's been great in his office results and yeah it's it's you know foreigners. -- on the other hand. -- nobody likes it when -- -- although he's edited that's what out of the game. But what are. What a brilliant an incredible player he is you know you the last that was brought are shutting down its -- -- still on a way to get it done in and he's the kind of player who -- against such as last night. We'll acts even at the equally you know just that help the players around and play better didn't seem that anything would that -- that.
