Anyone here have anything good or bad to say about Center Ice? Is it comparable to MLB.tv?

I assume you mean Gamecenter? Center Ice is the TV package, Gamecenter is the streaming service.

MLB Advanced Media runs Game Center, so I would assume it's mostly the same as mlb.tv. I've gotten Gamecenter in the past and really liked it. Every game in HD, you can choose which broadcast, archives, etc. All the usual bells and whistles.

If you are asking about Center Ice, which is done through your cable provider, then I would say it is more comparable to Extra Innings. I love it.

Comparing it to MLB.tv, which I tried this year, well.... let's just say I am going back to Extra Innings next year.

Edit: The reason I say this is that I have found the internet is more prone to lag and stuttering than EI through my satellite. I could deal with it for baseball, but I wouldn't be able to watch hockey like that. With that said, I have no idea if it was my ISP, hardware (which, it shouldn't be as my modem and router are both really, really good), or the MLB.tv app itself, so you may have different results.

Clode was tinkering a bit yesterday...looks like the lineup is

Marchand - Bergeron - Vatrano
Beleskey - Krejci - Eriksson
Spooner - Ferraro - Hayes
Shithead - Kemppainen - Connolly

Kevan Miller is back practicing but was on the 4th pair yesterday so fingers crossed he's in the press box.

Clode can't seem to find the right bottom 6 combo. I don't like burying Connolly down there, but we'll see. If we could just get Pastrnak back and kick Shithead upstairs....

Shithead has easy clear, decides to go for the no look behind the back pass, Oilers scoring chance results.

Wait.... Edmonton is allowed to keep playing while the Bruins change lines? That doesn't seem fair....

That was fucking awful

Well, if you you're gonna end a 5 game winning streak, you may as well go all in and do it by playing like complete shit against the worst team in the league.

This is par for the course for the Bruins. Yes they're on a 5 game win streak, but they play very well one game and then play like garbage the next.

God I love Krejci. Such a vastly underrated and under respected player by Bruins fans.

Bergeron gets all the love, but Krejci to me is in right up there with him and just as important.

Vatrano shoots everything. It cracks me up. I don't have high expectations for him but the Bruins could use a player like that.
