The Bruins are one win away from the Stanley Cup Finals.
One win. One measly little win.
It is so close, we can taste it.
Yesterday’s 3-1 win over the Lightning was not pretty by any means, but it is a “W” nonetheless.
Bruins’ d-men looks shaky and slow. Communication between Timmay and ZC33, AF21, DS44, TK12 and the rest of the guys was off and we don’t like it one bit. But they did stick Big Z in front of the net to screen out Smith. Well played, Claude. It’s like trying to see around a California redwood.
Bruins let TB score early in the first (again!). Guys, we can’t let this happen anymore. WUYS forbids it. It is soul-crushing and we can’t take the stress about the B’s having to come from behind a minute into the game.
We’re totally cool with goalies playing the puck…when it is safe and necessary to do so. Too many times this series Timmay has gone back to play the biscuit and crashed into a defensemen or misplayed the puck leading to a turnover. Do us a favor, Timmy. Just stay in your home. Don’t venture out. Become agoraphobic. Those blue lines are to become your personal little bubble.
Bruins got scoring from Horton, Motorscooter Marchand, and Rich Peverley, who I’m sure goes home everything and prays to baby Jesus in the tuxedo t-shirt that he got out of Atlanta when he did. While his former teammates back up their u-hauls and deal with the drama of the Thrashers relocation to Winnipeg, RP49 is one win away from getting the chance to play for Lord Stanley’s Cup.
The game was hard-fought and one could argue that the Lightning outplayed the Bruins, but some how the Killer B’s pulled it out.
Like the proverbial rabbit out of hat.
Game 6 is tomorrow night in Tampa Bay. *fingerscrossed* no magical tricks required.Tags: Boston Bruins, Brad Marchand, Nathan Horton, NHL Playoffs, Rich Peverley, tim thomas, zdeno chara
