Game Seven

We are just a few minutes away from game seven of the Bruins first round series against the whalers.

The home team has won every game this round. We need that to change tonight as we are the road team.

There is no reason the Bruins can’t win this one. It’s been an even series, but I’ve got a good feeling today. Cautious optimism and everything.

Go Bruins!

Two Goal Lead

The Bruins have a two goal lead after two periods. I’ve been watching the game out of the corner of my eye, and it sure looked like the Whalers carried the play for most of the second period. Here’s hoping the Bruins hang on.

Patches looks nervous, but the Bruins are in a good spot going into the third.

Must Win

The Bruins are playing a must win game six. It’s win or go home. There is no score after one period. The home team won each of the first five games. We need that trend to continue.

Come on, Bruins. Let’s get it done.

What’s Up With the Bruins?

I’ve been busy with other things the last few days and I haven’t really kept tabs on the Bruins

So what the hell? They lost games one and two. When I started writing this they were losing in game three too, but they just tied it.

The two losses were bad, but they were on the road. They need to win tonight. They need to.

Come on Bruins, let’s straighten this out.

FYI

For your Information:

Do you realize the NHL playoffs start in about an hour an a half? The post season kicks off with the Bruins and the Carolina Hartford Whalers Hurricanes*. Game one starts at 7:00**PM in whatever North Carolina city passes for Hartford these days.

All together now… Go Bruins!


*The NHL schedule says 7:00PM so, what… 7:35? 7:40? Whatever.

**No, I will not stop making smart*** ass Whaler cracks at the Hurricanes. I don’t care how much you beg me to stop, I will never stop.

***Smart?

NHL Thanksgiving

The traditional belief around the NHL is if your team is in a playoff spot on US Thanksgiving then there is a very good chance they will still be holding a playoff spot when the regular season ends.

Thanksgiving day (US) is therefore thought of as a sort of magical day.

At this moment, with Thanksgiving mere minutes (90, to be exact) away, the Boston Bruins are two points out of the second wild card spot in the East.

Shit.

World Series

The Braves have a 5-0 lead over the Astros in the third inning of game one. I’m not watching, I just checked the MLB app.

When I was younger I used to want to see a Red Sox vs Braves World Series match up. Current Boston vs used-to-be Boston, get it? This year is as close as we’ve come.

I want the Astros to lose, but I want the Braves to lose too. That probably means I won’t be watching.

Oh well.

Heading into the Eighth

Heading into the top of the eighth, we are still down 2-0. What a frustrating game!

They ran themselves out of a promising inning in the seventh. Two on and one out and the inning ended on a strike out/caught stealing double play. It was awful.

Two innings to go. Come on Red Sox bats, wake up!

No More No No

The Red Sox broke up the no hitter with a two out triple in the top of the sixth. One pitch later the inning ended. We are still down 1-0 but both teams are into the bullpens now. That feels like an advantage for the Astros but we will have to see.

The Bruins beat the Sabers tonight and UMass Lowell tied Michigan State. I could really go for the Red Sox giving me an undefeated night. Defense needs to hold them at one run, and the offense needs to wake the frick up!

Go Red Sox. Please.

Pretty please.

ADDENDUM: As I was clicking publish the Astros lead off the bottom of the sixth with a triple. Ugh.
