The NHL didn't want Miroslav Satan. He was on the so-called scrap heap. And the goal hungry Bruins picked him up. And thank God they got Satan.
The Sabres have scored the opening goal in all 4 games of this series. Considering that, along with their Ryan Miller, they should be up 3-1 instead of down 3-1. But they're not a team well-suited for the playoffs, apart from their goalie.
The Bruins continue to dominate the physical game. They continue to rely on Rask, who has been almost as impressive as Miller. They continue to lean on Bergeron's line. And somehow it's all working according to plan. Later in the playoffs, more Bruins will have to contribute. But right now, things have been working well.
The Sabres are up against it. They're under pressure, and I think their skaters will fold. Maybe they'll steal Game 5, but can they win 3 straight? Unlikely.
Game 5, Friday night in Buffalo.
