I don't like this.
I'm going to Vegas in a few days, and I'm not going to have to search for a bar to watch the B's.
I'm not counting the moments until I get home because I know I have a game to watch.
I'm not avoiding my cell phone, screening any incoming calls or texts in case someone sends me an update on the game.
I don't like this.
It was a great year. Great season. Great effort from all.
But I still don't like this.
Going to have to wait until next year (that refrain seems familiar).

There's about 41 million cliché's that could be said about tonight. Believe me, Versus, the NHL, and the rest of the media used pretty much all of them to build up game 7 for the Caps and Penguins. My fave was "A Game for the Ages". I guess they didn't see a totally boring blowout coming...but I digress.
The B's need to put all that shit out of their heads, show up and just win. They've got every tool to nail Carolina's coffin shut and as long as the show up using them, they'll win.
After watching NESN's airing of the History of the Boston Bruins last night, I still have goosebumps. Those goosebumps wouldn't exist if that program ended with a lukewarm, so-so team. It ended with today's Bruins who are the most exciting bunch to come along in a long,long time. Regardless of what happens tonight, it's been a joy to watch them all season. But please, just win.

Raleigh, North Carolina-
Scott Walker, born July 19th, 1973 in Cambridge Ontario, passed away at Tuesday night at the age of 35.
Walker, a member of the Carolina Hurricane, perished after being struck by a flying, 230 lb object. Witnesses still can't say exactly what it was, but all agreed they saw a streak of black and gold, and heard a terrible sound similar to an ancient war cry. In it's aftermath, lay a pile of broken Scott Walker.
Fans and Friends of Walker all agreed this tragedy could have been prevented. Even his family acknowledged Walker should have been sitting out this match and would still be alive today. Paul Maurice was later found crying and holding himself in his truck, glasses, covered in tears and fog. He had no comment.
A funeral for Walker is being postponed. Walker who had a history of bad investments, recently forfeited his last $2,500 to the NHL. Aaron Ward is collecting a few dollars from old teammates on Carolina, Nashville, and Vancouver. He hopes to have enough for a proper burial at weeks end. Just a few days after the Bruins so kindly end Carolina's season so they can mourn for their fallen brother.
On a side note:
Aaron Ward, aka the Warrior, aka IRONMAN, plays a spectacular Game 6, despite a broken face he suffered after being bitch punched by the late Scott Walker.

Last night, the Bruins played the way they did pretty much all season. They dominated physically. They rained shots down on Ward. Their forwards skated hard. The D shut everything down. If something managed to get through, Timmy showed why he is a Vezina finalist.
The series is now 3-2, and the Bruins can't let up. If they do, they'll soon be getting in fights at the 19th hole with several Habs.
The Bruins had the opportunity to coast pretty much all year due to the felonious amount of points and goals they were putting up. This was the first game, all season, that they truly had to win. An unfamiliar position for the 08-09 Bruins, but one they responded well to.
Here's hoping they keep it going.

Ward - You suck
Montador - You suck soooo much
Stuart - You're a retard and you suck
Wideman - You suck, not as much as the rest of the D, but you still suck.
Hnidy - You suck
Chara - You suck because you should be the best player on the ice and Eric Staal just made you his bitch.
Jack Edwards - You suck. Matt Huniwick is not the reason the B's have lost their edge in the play offs. Brick, slap him and take his headset away.
Carolina Fans - You suck and are a bunch of honkys. If you can tailgate year round, you shouldn't even be able to have a hockey team. I hate you.
Eric Staal - I hate you, I hate Marc, I hate Jordan, and I hate everyone on your farm. Even the sheeps.
Fuck you, you fucking fucks. You're one game away from ruining a great season. Congrats.

I'm still pissed about the game last night. First period was a good effort and all looked well. They fell off the face of the eartH in the second and 3rd.
WHERE THE FUCK IS THE OFFENSE? A FAT GINGER KID WITH A CLUB FOOT AND SCABIES IS SCORING MORE RIGHT NOW THAN THE FUCKING B'S. WHERE THE FUCK IS THE OFFENSIVE SPARK THAT HAD THE BRUINS SCORING THE MOST GOALS IN THE NHL? WHAT THE FUCK IS ONE NUT DOING OUT THERE, OTHER THAN FALLING DOWN AND FAILING TO GET HIS ASS BACK TO HELP ON DEFENSE? WHERE THE FUCK IS "MATRIX" KREJCI? HE'S MOVING SO SLOW THAT IF HE WERE REALLY NEO, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN FUCKING DEAD FUCKING MONTHS AGO. AND BLAKE FUCKING WHEELER: WE KNOW IT'S YOUR FIRST POSTSEASON. MAN UP, GRIND IT OUT, AND PLAY THE FUCKING GAME.
WIDEMAN: HIT THE FUCKING NET.
MONTADOR: STOP PRETENDING YOU'RE ROBERT GORDON ORR AND TAKE CARE OF YOUR OWN FUCKING END.
STUART: STOP RUNNING AROUND HITTING PEOPLE, IT'S PUTTING YOUR CAVEMAN ASS CONSISTENTLY OUT OF FUCKING POSITION.
I'm sorry. I had to get that out. This is not the same B's team that dominated the regular season. No offense and shitty D does not bode well for a long playoff run.
PULL YOUR FUCKING HEADS OUT OF YOUR COLLECTIVE FUCKING ASSES AND PLAY THE FUCKING GAME YOU PLAYED ALL FUCKING YEAR.
