Cam Neely is rolling over in his grave

Oh man the Boston Bruins are hard to watch right now. Without Milan Lucic and Marc Savard, not to mention Phil Kessel (who's catching up on The Hills in Toronto), the B's simply cannot score goals. Their defense and goaltending is fine but the power play is anemic and the lack of any potent sniper is alarming.

Yesterday afternoon's cut and paste 1-0 loss to the Rangers at Madison Square Garden was about as dull as they come. It marked the fourth time in the last 20 days that the B's have lost 1-0.

Once Marian Gaborik scored with 4:09 left in the second period (from Vaclav Prospal and Marc Staal) you had a feeling that New York (9-5-1) was going to pull this one out.

Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist made 29 saves for the shutout while Tim Thomas had 22 in the loss for the Bruins (6-6-1).

David Krejci, Michael Ryder, Marco Sturm and Zdeno Chara are just a few names of Bruins that need to start finding the net with their shots.

Boston travels to Detroit tomorrow night to face the Red Wings, who are off to a similarly blah start to the season.
