Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

Back edit multiple united three point seven WE DI three up the Rangers lead got it's been on the broadcast throughout for NBC sports and big part of our playoff coverage. Our body Pierre McGuire Pierre mutt and a little Dario. Cricket as the remarks hello -- 80 man let's talk about how you soccer is watching on TV ninety seconds into the game the Rangers could not get the puck out of Airpwn and they started their power line the physical life. And the Bruins dominated to meet Pierre that set the tone for the game is that -- too simplistic but we saw last night. No that's going on the deploy it was made on our broadcast do exactly what you do certain marked the biggest thing is. The people are starting game on all my assured downed -- -- you know you're never in trouble pressures to use on all -- He wanted to set the tone early. So you wanna go often do you start your heavy hitters you start by employers start Derek Dorsett. Is start to -- you start your bankers like columns stampeding elephants in expecting the stampede. All of it and in fact -- to begin around and not really shut the whole temple for the game MacBook. Built for a couple periods were talking about the conference the Bruins fans and and only 161 guy and relinquish that was the one reason like that the Bruins are a better team for couple periods. We saw that from them but they're down three nothing now. Any shot at all any kind of life is to me it looks like eighteen that. Maybe just doesn't believe in themselves doesn't believe in their coach. Pull hard on all that Arnold Karr wanted to coach to coach could stuff I don't know armada in their room and -- -- -- I've got to respect or conditional makes for a good long while and I really restricted. To process the coaches and make it to the league sort of touched on them but I do thank. That there's a little bit they're street visual wanted to accomplish in a playoff series concern and doubt and fear. If you're the appalled and then bring operators are clearly concerned. They clearly have doubt and I thought last night in the third period in particular after parties scored the second goal. -- -- -- and if you can accomplish source street characteristics in the playoffs here's your chance to win and are really good. And I think the brains of potentials and opposition and out. What exit don't have a shots on net I mean did the first three shots onto grass in the second period Pierre. They managed two more shots the rest of the way their outshot fourteen to two. It's more about their ineffectiveness right now as an offense or something the Bruins are doing because five shots in the second period seems awfully pork for me to game three like that. The Bruins have finally found their mark I think would be wrong to despair urged the Rangers but current -- on the market like they can. Despair strangers about their power play five on fiber structures good but the Bruins -- on the market and by that I mean four -- attack. We've talked about a lot on the show. Campbell playing Gordon have been huge for this group especially in this series I thought that would be the X-Factor ministers so far it has been. Archer. With crew with Hamilton report -- ski. Those guys their mobility and their ability to move the pocket. I truly broken down the ranger fortunate got a lot you guys saw the paper it did before the game and then into the first heard about how the Rangers before -- aggressive. And the British -- just break out pita -- the middle heated -- the wing to the middle. There's a scene in the middle of the ice all the time because curators were taken aboard whether the Bruins have found out and exposing huge huge. -- you brought the partly to complain about the partly here in Boston and when it came at a rangers' I thought he broke down perfectly last night. Lots of the ball and basically the red -- orchestration. One. We're just freelance. -- -- -- -- Not this is not so nice. Told John Mark put that one of the best power plays for. You want to protect us. Well yes there's a -- when a couple of columns of the kings win one without one at that that is that is ugly. Well again cheap -- play goals in nine or ten playoff games no less are gonna win that much now. People mocked the Bruins power play from -- eleven go to wanting they had their cards on time. And when you have zone time and apart but he gets shall create momentum even though you don't score. What happens with the Rangers when they get power players now they crush whatever potential lumpectomy they might do. And that's that's why entries are all important and that's why are so what I showed when you speak with passion like -- we have new video evidence to prove it. It basically -- the whole series and what's gone on and the bruises are a lot of credit for their -- but the Rangers are players not being good. We're talking appear require BC sports in the package guy showed that the middle the ice opened here how much of that is -- in the rangers' pitching up and allowing it but. I almost feel like duke the Rangers in a -- could not have been prepared for the speed of -- cal ski. And the speed of crew almost like that's made the Bruins. In a way different team because they've added so much speed of the defensive -- The great point you know mark that's great poet and again deciding urged more of a hairless -- -- -- more of a hammer and a lot of -- that would complimentary call I mean that those guys bring it physically. But the other KG just salute to expression Bart -- -- crew they move apart structures are skating. Confidence to move the puck through the middle left actuality you're doing initially. So I give the virtual march or sudden punishing me last night fuselage Jimmy bearing too -- -- capable -- and very proud fathers you know because crude a lot like the way they were ordinary players undersized defensemen that new battle the park -- angle. There's watch because it's a show with crude and one on one look Callahan. In the shut and period that's textbook one on one defense for an undersized -- -- angle you play the man Easter as -- you don't play the part. I mean the fundamental to to go to war and should it become -- phenomenal really has been. We got to go to the fourth line because they finally get the credit they -- and it -- together now for awhile and I'm sure that helps. But you know that you grind out -- some good opportunities on Lundqvist but the dirty work in front the screen to the artwork those guys deserve a ton of credit last night and. But agreed Luke and you know we go back with important think backed -- eleven when he was -- hope these structures and games and went -- -- decided to insert him in the lineup. Made a difference made it different for -- -- made it different for Campbell it definitely different for the -- Charters and emotional leader and he's not gonna burn -- defensively. They need a cup god when they started challenging Marcia and lastly it would -- and saw what happened on the outside fish off -- and come off. Gordon comes on -- gets stabilized no more issues. You think that -- that team. The -- backing down. What don't endorse is gonna back down operate out what's acutely from medicine hat tigers are in the western arguing -- -- -- The American League or someplace Columbus she's not gonna back down to prosecute you guys Gregory Campbell he's a tough kid. So I don't think he backed down I just think at that point they're changed you know kind of lost some momentum towards market part of but he gonna -- -- -- hear whispers sweet nothings. -- -- -- -- -- -- Won't turn it won't be on -- on this at all strong word short or do you think that was the reaction around here was -- -- -- -- pick on marsh Donna pick -- Chris Kelly you'll fight Campbell but it's like with Orton gets in -- there he's out you know old -- back and forth to your show about. I'm not a -- to fight to right now. Exactly yeah I would think it's more fair but there there would. Let's follow up on a couple of the players last night what you see from Tyler -- he's now -- what that third line to look at the third period Pierre. Only Sean Ford had fewer shifts the Tyler Sega did it seems like he's got to get back to being physical if he's ever want to play on that Marchand Bergeron line again. I think that's true and also look at -- in my expression that game last -- like Lou when you look at it PH conditions obviously weren't very good and extremely hard you know new Yorker couldn't believe -- I arrived. In the afternoon from Detroit I got off the plane I was purge fired just walking down a ramp and it was really hot here. So it was more of a board game last night. In Eritrea armored yarder for an -- so. I can understand why they kept that -- together with Marcia and burger island and -- yarder part of one of the better needlessly -- person yet. The cup game to play but I thought I still think I like to stand -- shows. He's about to break through he actually really actually chance to -- -- before he's working his tail off beach trying to make things go. And the fact its currency and get a power play less like pick and a virtual but it talks you know and so he's got -- -- world as biggest -- of our Pulitzer. You get that -- secret between both benches that you hear the Bruins bench screaming for yarder to get off the ice he refuses. To get off the as the that rope around this guy pull off. -- are a couple -- -- there -- trying to get a lot but you know you are I'm Wilson this I was fortunate to report on national in the draft that you armor and I got a coach them earlier this career. His first two years I've worked them. I was the biggest thing which you are rare is that she understands what he's currently not that there were kindly explain where like he sensed essentially had a chance to break through. And you overstate. I think deployed part to a -- that. I'm not a very collectible mistake with a can she's not someone that can overextend. A magistrate on benefit -- you're trying to help came prospects. -- last one for me and you're not the prediction business you wanna get to tort -- but -- yet to make -- guessing for game four what's more likely. In your mind that they come out flat again and -- it get swept out of the series or are they for the first time consistently. In these four games show some sort of fight show some pride for that ranger blue and not get swept out Thursday. I don't know about the sweeping part but I do another stranger came very well. Almost as well -- lot better that I know the brunch in I would say this they're gonna shall comply. I know Callahan economic -- I -- Girardi and all boil all those guys are truly well I think they're commercial plane they're gonna grind and they're gonna compete. I'm gonna stressed what I should be X-Factor losers before star I'll say again. Campbell party toward the Rangers have not had an answer they haven't had enough depth all year. And then we were lucky the trade deadline that they are very glad some more depth but that's been the biggest issue they just don't have enough depth to keep current with the real good from Boston. Yeah one more thing Beckham was young defense I was impressed wanna keep an eye on them on the rolled with the last change in the match -- -- Obviously -- impressed by them at the crew was -- outstanding even defensive end. Up three nothing -- Dennis Seidenberg banged up nicked up any reason to make a -- wanna keep this guy healthy as possible as long as possible. I had great point Lou and that's spoken like a former athletic can tell you're thinking like a sportsman I would agree it is but I talked to Dennis was like before the game. He addiction to play but I think shall try to got a single player from salt when your coach out there remember we had a couple players entered through learning without -- cup dreams. I wanted to play we didn't need and we told listen ruled Egypt but we don't need to now. So you kind of have to them net as domestic -- global players like that I would be surprised they change oracle and in the game for. Here -- great stuff is always we'll see you back in New York Thursday night on the NBC sports network in the fourth talk yet. As this series moves on I don't want it on a series. That a lot of what do you guys -- all be doing what grown stranger game will be -- traded on Thursday it got -- -- -- for the rest of the way and Ottawa and Pittsburgh the rest of the way so. Strikes you guys -- and Xstrata terribly get by the Rangers. We'll -- -- Pittsburgh for -- Remember. That you can -- There is Peter McGuire -- BC sports league top of the hour break here judge in the kitchen updated the studio next.
