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 Shuts Out Carolina 4-0; Thomas With First Career Playoff Shutout

I am exhausted right now so I’ll make this a quick recap. Great win tonight for the Bruins, the Garden was louder than I’ve heard it in awhile.  It has become blatantly obvious that Claude Julien and the Boston Bruins have been hanging out in the Loge recently. After our last 2 game breakdowns, the Bruins made every correction the Loge suggested

Boston came out a little timid, but still put a lot of pressure on Carolina. So much pressure they did not give up a shot to the ‘Canes until midway through the first, all the while the ‘Canes had a powerplay. Toward the end of the first Recchi scored his second goal of the postseason, a tip in from Chara’s shot from the point. Four minutes later Kessel rounded out the first period scoring after a nice setup from Savard and Lucic.

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.

Brad Staubitz throttling Jordin Tootoo

I know this video does not have sound, but it’s the HQ version and the videos with audio were grainy. Either way Jordin Tootoo of Nashville really took a beating last Thursday night, compliments of Brad Staubitz. Probably one of the best fights last week, a prequel to the series starting next week: Fight of the Week, Hit of the Week, Goal of the Week, and Save of the Week.
