Hawks and Pens Go Ahead

So, I’ve had some salvation from Boston going down 3-1 in the Carolina series. Tonight, Chicago has pushed Vancouver to the brink of elimination with a 3-2 win tonight. If anything can cure a Bruins loss, it’s a Blackhawk win. If you were able to watch the game, you were in for a treat. There was a lot of back and forth, some rough stuff, and some great goals. Either way, Chicago put Vancouver in a tough spot. 

On the other side of the bracket Pittsburgh put Washington on the notification of elimination list. Pitt, up 3-2, beat Washington in OT on the night where Ovi was able to score 2-goals. Gino was able to beat Varlimov in OT to bring the series back to Pittsburgh, giving the Pens a chance to seal it at home.

At this point you may or may not know, Boston will play Carolina in a must win tomorrow night in Boston. Personally, I’m hoping it’s not the last time I see the Bruins this season. I have faith that the B’s will pull it out, based on one reason alone: the Bruins have nothing to lose at this point. Really, there is no pressure. If Boston loses, they were down 3-1 and the season is over. If they win, they still have a hill to climb. Therefore, the Bruins will go to the Gahden tomorrow, and play hockey, like it’s meant to be played, and like they have played it all season long. Care free and for the love of playing with your buddies. Nothing tops being on top of the league, and everyone has written the Bruins off, so why not go out tomorrow night and play the game as if it’s your last. I do not want to be cliche, but I want the B’s to go out and play loose, as if it’s November and it does not matter. As far as the NHL is concerned, Carolina needs to make travel plans to DC or Pitt, how about they have to make travel plans for one more night in Carolina.

OK, enough until tomorrow. I doubt we’ll have a B’s pregame, but there is one point I want to make in the Chicago/Vancouver series that is really incredible. It shows how the role of hockey has such an importance on an athlete’s lives. I’ll make that point on Sunday afternoon or Monday, I’m tired now and want to present this to the viewers on Monday, where we have most of our hits.
