Scoring Chances: BOS @ CBJ 12/10/11

Tim Thomas has technically never defeated the Blue Jackets. He has an OT loss and a regulation loss, but the recent wins by the B's over Columbus have all come with Tuukka Rask in net - including last night, given that Rask was put in goal for the third period.

That's kind of a shame, because Thomas did the bulk of the work last night to give his team a win.

The Jackets did a few things wrong, but they did a lot right - particularly at even strength - where the problem was the Bruins had few chances, but converted on nearly half of them to control the game.

Best E/S Forward: Derick Brassard (+4)

Worst E/S Forward: Jared Boll / Mark Letestu (-1)

Best E/S D-man: John Moore (+6)

Worst E/S D-man: James Wisniewski / Marc Methot (-3)

Moore's numbers (and for that matter, Clitsome's) are in part because of cherry picking and matchups, and I get that, but I am flummoxed that Moore, Clitsome, and Vermette saw no PP time, especially during the Lucic double-minor. meanwhile, I cannot help but look at Ryan Johansen and think that he's going to break through in a big way soon....and putting Derick Brassard on his line looks like a very shrewd move by Scott Arniel.

The first period goals by the Bruins were back-breakers. The Jackets had textbook momentum and a dominant performance shredded by them. Give the Jackets credit for a good second period, too, but this team disappeared in the third - though I wonder how much of that Claude Julien adjusting his defense to protect Rask.
