“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.
You gotta love hockey fans. NOTHING is sacred….girlfriends and co-workers are all acceptable targets. Imagine the dejected Blue Shirt lovin’ Rangers fan walking into his office to a cube engulfed in Black & Gold.
Just imagine the number of brooms that will be “donated” if the Bruins win Thursday night in Game Four.
The Patriots announced today that former linebacker Ted Bruschi will be the next member inducted into the team’s Hall Of Fame. Bruschi edged out former head coach Chuck Fairbanks and offensive tackle Leon Gray. It was just a matter of time before Bruschi, who embodied “The Patriots Way, would receive this honor.
“Mr. Kraft called me on the phone last night and let me know, gave me the news,” Bruschi said. “He told me he was very proud of me to be inducted in the Patriots Hall of Fame, and I told him how much it meant to me.”
Bruschi was drafted in 1996 in the third round out of Arizona University. He appeared in five Super Bowls with the Patriots winning three. However, championships did not define the man or the player. He was measured by his dedication, leadership and courage. The latter being tested after he suffered a stroke in 2005.
Most players would have called it quits after such a health scare, but not Mr. Full Tilt, Full Time. The word quit is not part of Bruschi’s vocabulary. He fought and clawed his way back and returned to play three more seasons for the only NFL team he knew.
And gave Patriots fans a lifetime of memories…..Congratulations Tedy.
