Playoffs - Day Four
The day dawns on what should be a more relaxed (relatively) hockey club. The Bruins will need to be that, and more focused and task oriented in game two this evening.
Meanwhile, how about NHL playoff hockey! Proving once again, its the greatest sport in the world, we see three terrific finishes last night. The newest great number-8, Mr. Ovechkin in DC pulls off the one-man forecheck, interrupting the break-out of Philly, picking the D's pocket, and delivering the game winner with less than 5 minutes to go in the third. High drama.
A power play goal with a minute left gives the Penguins a two-nothing series lead on Ottawa, a team that actually fought hard last night, and then Minnesota ties its series with a touche' "take-that" overtime win against Colorado.
There is simply no better time of year. Let's see if the B's can jump in there and make some memories tonight (Saturday).
I know their fans are ready ....
Hi Rob, I just sent this to Bish, and I wanted to keep you in the loop.
"For the Bruins stretch run, I decided to rock a mohawk. I even rocked it up in Montreal Easter weekend for the B's game. I have had it for 2 months now, and seeing Savvy joining Ference in the mohawk club makes me think that we should put the message out to fans to rock the hawk on Sunday!!! Are you with me?"
No 'Hawk for TV boy, but love the enthusiasm. Bish by the way, for those who don't frequent the BB website, is John Bishop, he's blogging and columning on Bostonbruins.com from here in Montreal. Follow the behind-the-scenes exploits.
Speaking of behind-the-scenes, it's almost time to battle through the media crowds at morning skate. It's a wee bit of a circus up here, and it'll probably get a little kookier with each and every passing day. Talk to you tonight, and then see you in Boston for Game Three on Sunday. All the best.
