Maybe The Best Post Season In Many Years

Have you been religously watching the NHL playoffs like I have? I don’t think I’ve watched this intently since ’92 when the Blackhawks were swept by the Penguins in the Finals. The only other memorable playoff series is in ’94 when the Rangers took the Cup and Messier gauranteed a game 7 win in the semi’s. Of course each year I can pick out a memorable series, like the Detroit/Colorado rivalry, but this year has been awesome. BTW, remember when Stevens laid out Kariya? For some reason I just though of that. Anyway, I’m a huge hockey fan during the regular season, but when a game is on, and it’s not the Bruins or Blackhawks, it will just be background noise while I spin around in my chair at my desk. However, this year has been different, I’m fist-pumping around the apartment, yelling ‘OOOOOOOOOH GIRL” when huge goals are scored, and screaming “BUUUUUNDLED” when someone gets pasted to the boards.

If you’re not paying attention to the Devils/Hurricanes, Flyers/Pens, or Blackhawks/Calgary series’ then you’re missing a lot. How this post-season is not getting more coverage, I don’t know. ESPN has so much garbage coverage on the NBA and NFL draft it’s ridiculous. Although I cannot complain, I think Versus does a much better job of coverage. NBC is trying to get into the act with its game of the week, but I’m not buying it.

The Bruins Need This One

So I’m having a pretty terrible start to my day/week. To begin, it took me forever to get into work today considering the subway was packed with Red Sox fans going to the game, and spectators for the marathon going to watch people exercise for 6 hours. I live 4 stops away from my office and it literally took me 35 minutes to get to work. I probably should have walked, but that’s my problem. Then, I get to work and crank away for about an hour, head to a meeting, come back to realize I have coffee all over the front of my shirt. That must have happened sometime on the way in, so it’s nice to know I’ve been walking around the city and office with Dunkin’ Donuts French Vanilla Coffee down the front of me. To add on to this day, I pretty much cannot leave the office because the marathon ends a block away from my building, so at about 1 o’clock there will be a sea of people, 20 deep, in front of the entrance. As for my walk home I know I can expect to see about 1,000 people walking around like zombies with shiny silver blankets wrapped around them.

 

But enough about me, because I’m not having the best day I’m going to throw this out there. Tonight is a MUST WIN for the Bruins. You’re probably thinking I’m nuts for throwing that out there, but it is. If the Canadiens lose the series, it’s a drop in the bucket for the tumultuous season they have had. Plus as an eight seed, they are expected to lose, even though Anaheim is doing OK for themselves right now. But, if the B’s don’t put the Habs down 3-0 tonight, they open the door for an upset.
