[QUOTE]In Response to Re: IF : I couldn't be more of a fan and I can tell you that this season has been the most enjoyable since the late 80s/early 90s. It'll be too bad if they don't win the next two games, but it certainly won't take away from the fun I have already had watching this team.

Spot on. I will be disappointed if they cannot win this but the last Boston Bruins' playoff memory I have is a humiliating, historic 4 game fold after a 3-0 series lead.
This has easily been the most enjoyable Boston Bruins' playoff run for me since 1972, period. A stirring 7 game win in OT against Montreal after losing the first 2 games at home? Making up for last year as much as they could by crushing Philly 4 straight? Winning a breathtaking 7 game series against a tremendously skilled and classy team like Tampa? And the B's losing 3 one goal games along with 2 lopsided beatings of Vancouver, they could have won all 5 games with a break here or there. Unfortunate that Vancouver and their fans have been so unclassy, but that's just not important.
I traveled from the midwest to Boston twice, once to see Tampa G2, and Vancouver G4, just because the pure joy this run has been.
I'm terribly proud of this team, every one of them, even the ones that have not been my favorites and that Ive criticized all year. That includes Julien, who has this team 2 wins from a Stanley F ing Cup. I love all these guys right now.
Go B's. But if they lose? Thanks, B's.
