B’s drop another one…

BruinsSo there has been a lot of chatter about the B’s coverage on the Loge. Yes, as Clark Dub has said there are Whalers blogs that have been updated more frequently than the B’s blog….good one, have fun golfing in April. Yes, I know the B’s coverage has been soft, Commish was just promoted and the Kiiiiid is now in B-school so time to have fun has been short, but we have not been slacking on the B’s watching. So, for those of you who do not know, the B’s look like dog poo, tonight they dropped their third of the season to the Avs to drop to 2-3 on the season. The B’s now stand third in the division and 10th in the Eastern Conference. A big deal? NO. But I don’t like it and I’m not happy with them. The Bruins are not doing what they should, tonight they went down 2-0 early in the first and no one wanted to drop the buckets and stand up for the team. Why not? I don’t know, maybe Thorton’s purse was too heavy or Lucic didn’t have his dose of cranberry juice this weekend. Yes, I’m calling out town favorite Milan, if he wants to feed me my lunch, by all means, atleast I know he can still throw a punch, sissy.

Not an excuse but…

Boston Globe beat-writers are reporting that a number of Bruins were pretty banged up for much of their Stanley Cup Playoff run. Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has reported that Phil Kessel and David Krejci will both undergo surgery this offseason. Kessel will have shoulder surgery on Thursday to repair a torn rotator cuff and labrum and Krejci will have hip surgery sometime next month. Both are expected to miss the start training camp this summer. There are also a number of other injuries that are now being reported by the team.

“There’s a variety of injuries we had throughout the course of the playoffs,” said Chiarelli this afternoon. “Every team has injuries. But we seemed to have a few more than other teams. I have to hand it to the players for playing through those injuries.”

Boston Bruins Force A Game 7

Game 7 Here We Come!

First off I want to apologize for those of you who visited this morning looking for the Game 6 recap. Last night I was too tired to create a recap and Commissionerdangle needed his beauty rest, and trust me, he needs all he can get. As for the rest of the day, here is my mini rant, some of you may get some enjoyment out of it. On Friday I’m leaving for New York City, New Jersey actually, for my girlfriend’s sister’s wedding. Because of that, I have about 2 weeks of work to do in 4 days. I literally have 47 projects that need to be completed before I take off Thursday night. Here’s where the comedy comes in, on top of that I need to make my own travel arrangements to Red Bank New Jersey. See, I’m not leaving with my girlfriend tonight to go to the wedding. I told her I’m missing her sister’s rehersal dinner in order to go to Game 7. If any of you saw fireworks in Boston last night, it wasn’t the Fourth of July. It was me deciding to watch the Bruins Game 7 at the Garden Thursday night, instead of head to the Garden State. Now I’m taking a 6:30am Mega Bus, Friday morning, to some corner in New York City, walking 6 blocks to Penn Station, taking a train to Red Bank, NJ, and somehow making it to the wedding by 4:30pm. Mind you, I don’t know where the wedding is at, the hotel, or the reception. If you think the Bruins have pressure tomorrow night, call me around 3pm Friday and see where I’m at.  Continue reading ‘Boston Bruins Force A Game 7’

Bruins face adversity: Game 4 preview

top_player

Well if the Bruins really want it as bad as I do, they better get there heads out of their ass or as “The Kiiid” always says, “they will be in for a summer long tee time”. Now I know this isn’t a do or die situation yet and that the Bruins are only down 2-1 in the series, but in my eyes, tonight is basically it for the Bruins. In the History of the NHL playoffs there has been 229 occasions when a team has been down 3-1 in a best of seven series. Of those 229 times, only 20 times has a team come back to win that series. That is a mere 8.7%.  As a betting man, I certainly wouldn’t put money on those odds.

Boston’s Talent Lost in Transit

Bruins Hanging Out

Is that the end of the season I see?

Hey, Boston Bruins, welcome to the second round. I know it’s been a long time since you’ve been here, but stop hitting on the chick checking coats and take advantage of the opportunity inside. This is two games in a row you’ve admired a 5-game winning streak and have played around wearing Jills instead of Jocks since then. Well here are the facts: this Carolina team is no joke, and you’re now 2 losses away from making a summer-long tee time. While that may be fine for you guys, I’d like to postpone my hacking abilities at Leo J. Martin for as long as possible. Everything about tonight’s game was ugly. From the power play(0-9 so far this series), to the defensive zone break downs to the lack of physical play;  the entire performance was god-awful.

The first period started out strong, and Boston looked like they may have righted the ship after Sunday night’s 2-0 loss (empty net goals don’t count- ask Al Iafrate) in Game 2. Milan Lucic started off the scoring by pocketing his first goal of the series after a few quick passes from Wideman and Savard. After Lucic’s goal Carolina and Boston traded penalties with nothing happening on the advantages. However, this is when Boston seemed to start falling apart. The first period did not end strong and Boston started coughing up the puck and forcing it up the boards.
