07:16 AM ET 05.07 | Having returned to the lineup after being a healthy scratch in Game 1, Games 2 and 3 were still rough on Boston third-liner Rich Peverley. The hope was that Peverley, who replaced Kaspars Daugavins, would give the team some scoring punch. That didn't happen, and even worse, Peverley's line was scored upon. "We have to create more offense," Peverley said. "There was a little bit of learning what (Jagr) does. We talked a bit. We need to be better." Peverley, who took a delay-of-game penalty in the second period, was not sharp. "A lot of it is playing your own game, and I don't think I was good enough last game, so hopefully I can be better and maybe that will make the line better," Peverley said.

If Bergeron, Marchand and Seguin get rolling, look out Leafs fans!

Things look good for the Bs when Wade Redden and Adam McQuaid are both plus three on the night in limited minutes...

Could say the same thing about Bozak Lupul and Kessel. They woke up for game 2 and look what happened.Of course, if the linesman didn't throw Bozak out of every draw he took it would've been nice.

Two thirds of my comment is based on self-interest since I have Marchand and Bergeron in my playoff pool.

Horton and Lucic are making me quite happy...

I like this. Third liner calling himself out saying he's not getting it done. It shows that Boston's players realize it takes all skaters and all roles to get it done. Accountability can be a great thing....

Well when you have Horton getting gifts like the one he got last night, I guess i'd be pleased too.

Unfortunately someone snagged Krejci before I could...

He's killing us. And I remember a certain commenter once saying he'd trade him for Bobby Ryan "in a heartbeat". Dumb.

Thirty goal scorers make people say and do crazy things...

Spiny, you'll get a kick out of this...I have a Redden game worn Rangers jersey from Adam Graves' night signed by both Redden and Graves.

It may have to reappear in one of the jersey cases in my basement...
