Yeah, Carey pretty much stole that one, the HABS played like crap, a ten day layoff will do that to you. This plays perfectly into the game plan, Bruins dominate game 1 and come up empty, let the head games and second guessing begin!!!

I've been nice, so should you.  Let's talk after the Series.  BTW, I am flying to Brazil for a week for work tomorrow.  I will probably miss every game because goodness knows they are big time NHL fans down there.

Let's go Pens! Will be interesting to see what team shows up. If it was nicer I would go down to Consol to watch.

Solid win from my NYR.

@Ernest Jones ,

 

I have to apologize for the racist crap that some so-called Bruins fans subject Subban to.  That is not the Boston I know.  I think these people should have their tickets revoked permanently.  I hope the Bruins organization goes after them.

The Bruins drafted Subban's brother (Malcolm) in 2012 for god's sake.

I agree 100%. Completely ridiculous.

It makes me nauseous.

@boogielicious, I meant to post about that earlier but have been busy. I have been to Boston many times on business and that is not the Boston I know either. It's unfortunate that there's always a couple knuckleheads that get the spotlight. As much as I like to bash the Bruins and their fans it's all in good fun and every time I've been to Boston I've had a wonderful time and met great people. I've even sat in an Irish pub (the Lyre), surrounded by Bruins fans and talked hockey and horseshit into the wee hours of the morning and it was all good, never felt the least bit threatened, and this was just a week or two after the Chara hit on Pacioretty so I'll go on record (just this once mind you) and say that Boston fans have class. Ugh...that felt pretty weird.

 

Out of all the North American cities I've been to, Montreal and Boston share the most in common. We are like siblings.

 

Philadelphia on the other hand........

We are sister cities from what I understand.  I haven't been to Montreal yet.  We were planning on going for an anniversary in Sept 2001, but as you know, things changed that month.  

 

I wish fans would understand that it is a game.  Win or lose, life still goes on.

Wild even the series at 2.  Hey Chicago fans getting a little worried yet?  It just looks like Minnesota is starting to believe that they can hang with Chicago, and it is really fun to watch our third and fouth line come into their own.  The likes of Nino, Haula, and Fontaine have really shown that the Wild are much more than just Parise, Kiovu, and Suter.

 

PS - Just heard that Bollig got a two game suspension for his boarding on Keith Ballard last night.

Go Ducks!!

P.S. Realized tonight that the dumbos who sit in the front row and bang on the glass whenever the players get near are the hockey equivalent of the "get in the hole!!!" guys at PGA tournament.

Well, the Bruins certainly made a statement last night. Their D was impregnable. Unless Carey can steal the series, we are done. Not sure that press-boxing Brière to make room for an injured and contact-shy Prust was one of Therrien's smarter moves of the post season.

The final score was 4-2, a very misleading stat as the game was a lopsided as can be. I don't think I've ever seen a team pull their goalie down 3 goals with almost 5 minutes to play. It was actually an interesting tactic, once I got over my shock, I realized that Therrien's strategy was to draw penalties more than anything else and it worked to a degree. Unfortunately, Montreal PP was beyond inept last night. Full credit to the Booins though, they played airtight defensively last night.

I always thought that was stupid. These guys have been playing hockey most of their lives; they're not going to be distracted by somebody banging on the glass.

Teams have been doing that lately. Pittsburg did it the other day. It's just a desperation move, really. Since goal differential doesn't matter, and the team is likely to lose the game, it doesn't hurt anything to get super aggressive.

As a Bruins fan I would pay Suban the ultimate compliment and say "I hate Suban, but I would love Suban if he played for the Bruins." He can really take over a game. He is one of the few players I would pay to watch. Go Bruins!

The Habs win the next two games. Boston is tired.
