Well, now that the Bruins have established who they are, its easier.
When they get behind the Pens in the first period, you can turn the game off because they have no chance of scoring another goal.
When they are leading in the third, you simply have to wait for the inevitable collapse, then turn the game off after they cough up the lead, and go find something else to do.
I am actually getting more time to myself now, because this overrated bunch is unwatchable most third periods. I wish they would blow every lead earlier in the 3rd periods, though. They waste too much time before they choke.
They have no ability to score a goal the second half of a game.
This franchise that used to be a lock with a lead, is now a sure choke in every close third period. Terrible offense, weak defense, turnovers, shoddy goaltending. You name it, they arent good at it.
Early in the season when they were squeaking out 1 goal wins against the Torontos and Ottawas and Jets while they were healthy, are now evening out as they lose every one of them. And against real hockey teams like Pittsburgh and Montreal, they are just an embarrassment.
Goaltending cant hang onto a win. Defense cant stop breaking down. Offense is absolutely a joke.
This team is a slow bleed. Why cant they just get down by 3 in the first and stop pretending they have a shot?
Oh, and let's not forget all the brand-new shiny excuses. They are TIRED ya know. OTHER teams dont have a compressed schedule. They have INJURIES now. Ever look at Ottawa and Detroit's injury list? More excuses please.
Its sad to say the easy early schedule really did contribute to the smoke screen this team's record is. This team doesnt really do anything very well.
At least the playoffs wont take long.
