The Bruins made a few moves to help bolster their depth at the trade deadline, but Tuesday's loss to Ottawa showed there is still some work to be done before the B's can feel truly comfortable heading into the playoffs.
Zdeno Chara and the Bruins had appeared to turn a corner after scoring a point in each of their past three games, but the inconsistent play continued on Tuesday.
The B's had taken the momentum from a big win in St. Louis and shootout loss in Buffalo to drop the Senators with a 5-3 win in Ottawa. But Boston's offense looked staggered on Tuesday, as those same Senators came into the Garden and rookie goaltender Robin Lehner pitched a shutout in the 1-0 loss.
Brian Rolston's addition to the roster should help bandage a tattered B's attack, while Nathan Horton and Rich Peverley continue to make their way back from injury. Meanwhile, Mike Mottau and Greg Zanon add to the defensive unit and give Boston the type of depth needed when looking to win a Stanley Cup championship.
Claude Julien and the Bruins have one heck of a run ahead of them with the New Jersey Devils, New York Islanders and a rematch at Madison Square Garden with the Rangers over the weekend before heading to Toronto for a meeting with the Maple Leafs.
There should be plenty for The Instigators to talk about after the Bruins game on Thursday. But, they still need a little help, which means there's still time for Jack, Brick and the gang to answer your questions.
