After the Bruins 4-3 OT series close out loss, many fans are in full blown panic. Well, Darth Vader has a thing or two to teach you about Game 5.
1. I find Your Lack Of Faith….Disturbing
Yes Darth, I find the Bruins fan base lack of faith disturbing as well. Everyone on sports radio is going back to the epic demise of 2010 and the struggles versus Toronto after the Bruins brain farted away Game Four. However, there are many reasons why this series has NOTHING to do with the other two.
2010 vs. Flyers:
The Flyers had a a lot more talent then the 2013 Rangers
The Bruins have a lot more talent than the 2010 edition
Tuukka Rask for all intents and purposes was a rookie
David Krejci was injured in Game 4 and he was arguably the team’s most dynamic offensive player
2013 vs. Leafs:
The Leafs have more talent than the Rangers
The Leafs were hungry and the Bruins took them for granted after dominating them in the past and earlier in the series
The Leafs due to their team speed ended up being a match-up nightmare as the series dragged on
Trust me being single is not all it’s cracked up to be. Before I met my wife, I did the internet dating thing and there were more horror shows that I could shake a stick at. I wish there was a Singles Social Sports Leagueback then.
What could be better?
A group of people that love sports especially softball and WANT to be there.
No more awkward cups of coffee or drinks at the bar. Because we all know if things go south you don’t have an easy way out.
Worst case scenario at S3….you make some friends as you have a blast in a competitive atmosphere.
A little of the back story on how Singles Social Sports Leagues came to fruition…
In June, Daniels and her boyfriend will be in charge of bringing the first-of-its-kind singles sports league to Boston, branching off from similar groups started in Chicago and New York. Singles Social Sports, which describes itself as “more than a league,” will start up in June and bring hundreds of singles together to play weekly softball games on the Charles River, and follow-up the competition with social activities. “I have played in other sport leagues, and what was missing is most people join with friends and they don’t socialize that much. But because the only way to get to know people on a singles league is to introduce yourself, meeting someone new sort of happens organically,” says Daniels. Singles Social Sports, or S3, was started five years ago in Illinois, but its success stretched it first to New York City, and now, Boston.
So dust off those cleats and baseball glove…..and go swing for the fence for your team and for yourself.
“I’ve looked at a few games, and they definitely got some lucky bounces,” Lundqvist said Thursday morning. “Last game I blame the loss on lucky bounces, but they haven’t changed the way they’re playing. They shoot from the point, and they get a lot of people in front of the net. That’s what they do, and they’re good at it. You just have to play them hard and make sure we make it tough for them to get in front.”
Did the Bruins blame all the losses in the regular season when you owned them on luck?
Well Henrik, you are an example of a unhappy sailor on a sinking ship.
Can’t wait for the Bruins to put up six on you tonight, so you can go in the corner and suck your thumb.
Well not yet….and not for a long time….sorry Boston FD.
Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask is on FIRE this post-season.
Thus far, Rask’s numbers are comparable to those of the Tim Thomas during the 2011 Stanley Cup run. In ten playoff games, Rask has posted a 7-3 record with a .929 save percentage and 2.oo goals against. Rask single handily saved the Bruins bacon during the “Miracle On Causeway” in Game Seven against Toronto.
He has been money in the bank. Forget the Vezina snub, Tuuuukkkkaa has his eyes on a bigger trophy.
If Tuukka can lead the team to another Stanley Cup, the Tim Thomas militia members will finally embrace the present/future and stopping hanging onto the past.
And Tuukka may be having another hot tub party with Stanley in Finland….
It can be argued that Patrice Bergeron is the heart and soul of the Boston Bruins. Some say that he should be the captain of the team. However, there is no debate that he is one of the best two way players in the NHL. Bergeron won the Selke last season as the league’s best defensive forward and is nominated this year as well.
