I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but I couldn't sleep after that loss Monday night. I hit the sack at 9:30 last night, exhausted.
I'm too old to let losses effect me this way, right? I told my mid-twenties son, "Don't lose sleep over it, it's out of your control" (Do as I say, not as I do).
I remember two other Bruins losses affecting me to this extent:
The 2010 double 3-0 (up in games & in game 7) loss to the Flyers.
The 1979 "Too many men on the ice" game seven loss to the Habs in the semi-finals. You knew the winner in that series was going to trounce the Rangers, which the Scabs did.
Oh well, it's all part of being a Bruins fan's legacy, & I wouldn't have it any other way.
