Playoffs - Day 3
Actions speak louder than words. On the bench for the pregame show, my first question to Aaron Ward was "how important are the first five minutes of this hockey game?" He gave the answer that made sense: "weather the storm, stay calm, (etc. etc.)" Unfortunately, the reality of Game one and the storm that was the Montreal Canadiens, proved too much for the concepts of staying calm and executing, etc.
The Bruins had their doors blown off. The good thing: there's no more Game ones. The team learned what type of focus, intensity, and effort it takes to win in the playoffs, and they learned by watching their opponent. The Habs out-battled, out hit, and out everything-ed the B's last night.
Time to turn it around because time is ticking.
Nothing new on Patrice Bergeron coming back and based on the reaction of Claude Julien at his press conference this morning, he, they, Patrice, are tired of talking about it. In fact, that's about what he said. Understandable. It could be a distraction with all of the media attention around Patrice. And why even talk about if they're not sure if it's even going to happen.
But then why did the Bruins PR guy tell us last night, that today would be a big day, that the doctor was going to be here, and we'd find out if Patrice was cleared. Sounds like something fell through the communication gap. It happens. Especially with the focus on the game.
Had a delightful time out and about last night after the contest here in Montreal. Which isn't difficult to do.
Love the show Rob - great stuff each and every week. Not to look to far ahead, but what moves would you like to see the Bruins make if any for next season ?? And is there any place we an order or buy those Rubber Biscuit T-Shirts for me and the mrs?? thanks
Thanks. Get me a scorer off the wing darn it! Oh, and while you're at it, get me another scorer off the wing! Look for the B's to go after Marion Hossa if he's still a free agent and I think he will be. Shirts are free, send me another e-mail with your e-mail address in the body of content.
Had a pleasant e-mail from a gentleman named Joe who lives in Illinois. Fan of the Biscuit and games. (Not crazy about printing all the joy-joy comments, "pumping own tires" not cool for the most part, but I appreciate your kind words.) Thank you Joe. We'll see what happens.
Day off resumes. Talk to you from the computer and from the game Saturday. All the best.
