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.

…And Again

I’m getting tired of posting this. The Bruins are down 2-0 after one period.

In each of the last two games I had to formally request (via blog post) that they step it up and take care of business.

Come on, Bruins. Get it together. Again.

In unrelated news, the Red Sox are up 6-0 in the second inning. Should they lose tonight there record will calm to 10-20. That would be suckitude of epic proportions. I’d be okay with it though if I got a Bruins win in return.

Go Bruins… and Red Sox.

The Bruins are Losing

The Bruins and the Whalers are playing game four at this very moment. We are losing 2-1 in the second period.

Remember the other day when I wrote a post telling the Bruins they needed to step it up and win game three?

This is me doing it again. Come on, Bruins, let’s pick it up.

Go Bruins!

ADDENDUM: The Bruins scored! It’s tied at two after two periods. Keep it up, Bruins!

ADDENDUM 2: The Bruins won 5-2 and tied the series at two games a piece. You’re welcome, Bruins fans.

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.

Tampa Bay Lightning win the Stanley Cup

It was never really in doubt, but a minute or so ago the Tampa Bay Lightning won the Stanley Cup for the second consecutive season. More importantly, the Montreal Canadiens did not win the Cup. For me, a Bruins fan and not even a little bit of a Lightning fan, seeing Montreal lose was the real goal. I really, really hate the Montreal Canadiens. I mean I really, really hate them.

I don’t actually want to be the guy who roots against a team rather than actually rooting for their opponent. I don’t want to be that guy. The only exceptions involve the New York Yankees and the Montreal Canadiens. Boston’s history against those two teams sort of flush good sportsmanship down the toilet. For this fan, at least.

Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Lightning. The hockey gods smile upon you for beating Montreal. Amen and all that.

Damn it, Tampa Bay

They failed to complete the sweep. Montreal won game four 3-2 in overtime.

Damn it, Tampa Bay. You had one job. Eliminate Montreal in four games and win the Stanley Cup for the second consecutive year. One friggin’ job.

Game five is Wednesday night in Tampa Bay. Win it at home, Lightning. Or else. Or else what? Exactly.
