In Response to Re: Bruins Game 5: Just Not Good Enough : TTBI, as usual, I can't agree with all that you've written(I thought Bruins had some good chances on PP) but I am with you on 99% of it and I'm loving your new found optimism. You realize just what I do also. That Boston is by no means done and that the numbers become meaningless when the season gets to this point. This Bruins team has rewarded my loyalty with a number of gutsy wins already in these playoffs. Besides that my friend, it just wouldn't be the Bruins if they did something the easy way. GO BRUINS!!!!!! 2 MORE WINS!!!!!!!! .

Right on, Dez....this has been the mark of this Bruins team...making us sweat and worry and grind it out as observers, but ultimately coming thru....look, they survived that 0-2 hole vs. the Habs AND a Game 7 OT vs those guys...so a comeback against Vancouver doesn't exactly make me quake in my boots.
As for the PP, I guess what I meant was that game looks a whole lot diff. last night if they coulda got that first goal (it just felt like one of those games where it was gonna be a 1-goal winner), and while there were chances, they didn;t seem to be moving the puck around as well as in Boston, and went back to that mode where they have trouble getting into the opposing zone cleanly. Really, I just wanna see more Seguin! especially on the PP. Every time he's out there it feels like soemthing good is gonna happen for Boston & then Claude pulls him back. I get that he worries about Segs' defense, but on the PP that shouldn't be as much of a concern.
Another thing that coulda changed that whole dynamic was Kelly's shot half an inch lower--instead he rings the X-bar, but hey, that's hockey.
Allls I know is every game they've lost in Van. has been decided by a single goal. They're not getting run outta that building and eventually the breaks are gonna turn in their favor.
They may make us sweat Monday night to get there, but they WILL get there, and I ALMOST feel sorry for the Vancouver fans who are gonna be convinced they'll win game 7 cuz they're back home only to watch their own native son Milan Lucic crush their hearts with the game-winner for Boston.
