Because the Bruins managed to lose on my birthday, it's my turn to start a playoff game thread. They owe me a win or 14.

Despite the media continually trying to push the story, Braden Holtby is not Ken Fucking Dryden. Firing away from the point and giving the goalie a clear view will make a lot of guys look good. Get some people in front of him, make him uncomfortable, and watch the goals pile up.

It's a 3 game series. 2 are in Boston. The Bruins are the defending Stanley Cup Champions. The Caps are a team known for underachieving in the playoffs. I like our chances.

It would help if a few guys stepped up, though. Like, for instance...

Spoiler


Beat these fucks.

If Krejci could handle a pass last night, the Bruins at worst force that game to OT.

@NESN do you think Khudobin would do well against the caps, giving Thomas a rest?

Can't believe I agreed to go to the Saturday matinee of my school's play before checking the Bruins schedule. There was a perfectly good show tonight. Gaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Bruins win 3-1 today. Power Play gets one goal, Washington ties it up, B's score early in the 3rd, and then we have to endure about 12 minutes of high-octane Caps pressure to survive (Thomas has a classic "stand on his head" kind of game), and the B's get an empty-netter with 30 seconds to go to finish the scoring.

Three stars: Thomas, Chara, Bergeron

Barca begins dismantling Real Madrid at 2, then the bear devours some capitals (do the caps have a mascot? Is it an upper case letter?) at 3. big day.

I swear that's the same mascot the Nationals have, with a different jersey.

Or maybe the Caps mascot was at the Nats game last night. I was too enthralled by the giant-headed presidents racing around the warning track to find out for sure.


edit: I was waaaay off. The Natstown mascot is totally different.

We'll see how long those lines last. I actually don't have a problem with demoting Marchand to the 4th line and trying to get Seguin going on the Kelly line (which has clearly gotten the best matchup of the top 3 lines through 4 games). Just surprising, it reeks of desperation.

I'd rather find a way to get Caron into the lineup than actually go with yesterday's practice lines. That said, Paille probably scores and Washington is fucked.
