So this game has been like watching paint dry. There is no emotion at all and you expect that out of a last place team but not a Bruins team who is playing at home against their biggest rival. Theres no hitting, terrible passing, and nobody looks like they want to be there especially Chara who just stood there and watched the puck go between his legs. Luckily for the Bruins, Montreal is not good and they are missing key players as well, so being tied 1-1 after the first is nothing to worry about. Hopefully Claude throws Thornton out there for the opening faceoff to drop the gloves and give the team a little spark and the fans something to cheer about.
So the Bruins and Canadiens face off again tonight at the Garden. This time there’s no Lucic. He got suspended for a questionable hit in the Flyers game Saturday. It seemed he hit him from the side and his follow through pushed him in an awkward position but either way he’s supsended. Whatever. The only way Montreal has a chance tonight is if every player on the Bruins gets a game misconduct for boarding within the first 5 minutes of the game or if Montreal signs Tim Tebow within the next two hours. You have the hottest team in the NHL who just made the then first place Flyers look like the NHL’s version of the Colts this year. Tonight could be a replay of Saturday. The Bruins have scored nearly 50 more goals than they’ve given up this year which is ridiculous and everything seems to be clicking right now. Look for Jack Edwards to have about 20 orgasms and Brick to talk about P.K. Subban and his diving as your highlights of tonight’s game. I’m thinking it’s Bruins early and often putting up 2 or 3 in the 1st and not looking back. Expect a physical game from Chara and for Nose Face Killah to get under the Habs skin and put in a goal or two. Final score Bruins 5 Canadiens 1.
