Instead of getting any sleep last night after the collective kick in the stomach the BlewIts gave the City of Boston the night they needed them, I figured out exactly what is so infuriating about this bunch of Marys.
Watching the 2013 Boston BlewIts is like reliving May 2010 again, night after night after night.
You know they are going to choke. Even if you lie and pretend you dont know they never met a lead they couldnt blow, you know its coming. Is it possible to be a weaker team with a 3rd period lead? How does such a bunch of losers get so many leads to blow in the first place?
You know they will blow a third period lead against Pitt... or Mont... or... Wash... or Buff... or Winnipeg... or Buff or whoever they are playing. You know they cant handle the powerful Joe Corvo led Hurricanes.
Like against the Flyers, you know they got very lucky to get off to a great start and were so emotionally fragile that they would collapse at the first sight of difficulty. 2013 season = 2010 Flyers series.
You know the excuses like injury and fatigue would follow every loss. 2010. 2013.
When the 2010 team needed an emotional lift, they would lay an egg. They did it in the Savard game, in the drubbing in Game 5 vs PHilly. 2013 is the poster child of no heart- same thing. City desperately needs an emotional lift? Hearts racing after the National anthem? Egg... laid. Play like ballerinas. Humiliating.
When they completed the 3-0, 3-0 uh oh choke in 2010, they cemented their DNA. The 2013 Boston BlowIts is the same team that choked in the playoffs to Carolina, to Philly, to Washington. 2011 was a lucky miracle. This is who they are.
Mediocre goaltending propped up by a defensive system and incapable of making a big save in a third period. Incapable. Defense apparently over the hill. Stars completely invisible. 30 goal scorer Cam Neely clones on the 4th line. Excuse after excuse after excuse. Nice faceoff there Bergy. Crying about refs when they take penalty after penalty. The same embarrassing power play every year. Abysmal, wretched coaching, rightfully tuned out by a bunch of quitters.
Yep, watching the 2013 Boston BlewIts (or is BlowIts better?) is like watching the series against the Flyers over and over on a continuous loop. Its like Clockwork Orange... Flyer Orange?
Break this "team" up and find some character, somewhere.
