    Carolina's goaltending was garbage.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    I already pointed out the problem. They're not fucking winning enough at home. They played better and smarter on the road. Apparently the answer is do nothing. I guess we just throw up our hands and say hey we're gonna stink at home. You can always do something. Sheesh. Practice at Warrior...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Not good enough. I get it, rationally you guys would say SSS, but I'm unwilling to throw u my hands and say "oh there's nothing we can do," That's the crazy part.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    No, it means examining game day routines at home in the playoffs to see if they can get something better than what they're doing now. Because the results at home in the most important games in the year simply aren't good enough. Move practices to Warrior. Put them in a hotel for the day. At...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    Great. They weren't one and fucking three at home in the final. They didn't play like shit in Game 7 at home. That is prima facie evidence there's a problem. Something has to be done. Practice schedule, put 'em in a hotel....something. They have to play better at home. Period. I'm not going to...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    It's also the most important sample size. If you lose 3 out of four at home in the Final, there's a problem and a big one. I will never believe otherwise. Someone else mentioned they changed their practice routine from Warrior to the Garden. That may be a reason. In any case this can't happen...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    They were 1-3 in the fucking final. That's all that matters to me. Simply cannot happen. The Blues played well, but that's ridiculous.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    The biggest play that swung the series in the Blues' favor was the head shot on Gryz. They won that game because he was out, and it led Berube to complain about penalties, which led to the Game 5 reffing disaster. The NHL decided to make Berube head of officiating in the middle of the series...

    2019-2020 Bruins

    One thing they have to do, and I don't care if they bring in wiccans or whatever, is find a way to restore their home-ice advantage again. You simply cannot lose 3 out of four games at home in a SC Final. It can't happen. And they lost 2 out of 3 at home in 2013 too. It's absolutely infuriating...

    Oh OK. So we'll lose him anyway but not to Seattle. Cool cool.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    I had a horrifying yet plausible thought on my commute in this morning: The Bruins might expose Rask to the expansion draft for Seattle. Much like the Pens did Fleury for VGK. It's impossible to overstate how much shit Rask is getting from both traditional and social media right now for the...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    But the NY sports teams are by and large a dumpster fire anyway. Mets, Jets, Giants, Knicks are all laughable garbage. Rangers and NY sports teams are, with the exception of the Yankees, by and large a dumpster fire. Look at the parade of suck: Jets, Giants, Mets, Knicks. Look at the abject...

    2019 Stanley Cup Final - No Singing the Blues - Boston is Going Back to Backes

    I'm still not getting over it. Today has sucked. I'm depressed. I'm going to bed early.

    2019 Stanley Cup Final - No Singing the Blues - Boston is Going Back to Backes

    Perhaps he'll get his name inscribed on the Cup in commemoration. I fully expect he'll never ref another Bruins game again.

    Rethinking Barstool?

    It's so clearly the NYC thing at work too; they try to pretend it's not but it so clearly is. The EIC went on twitter after the Pats won bemoaning that sports wasn't fun any more. Fuck off, you don't have to cover them if they upset you so much when a Boston team wins. It doesn't help that that...

    Rethinking Barstool?

    No, not the towel thing. The Deadspin folks flocked to alll social media platforms after the game last night to shit on Boston, the Bruins, and their fans. Bunch of NYC elitist dickbags. And I loathe Barstool even more, but I'm done with DS.

    Sweeney signed Backes. That alone makes me very wary.

    Also I've unfollowed all Deadspin writers and the site itself on all media platforms. Buncha fucking dickheads.

    2019-2020 Bruins

    That's what makes last night such a kick in the balls, because this is a team on the older side and they just blew a chance to win with this core. I'm unsure if they'll ever have a better chance with these guys.

    Game 7 - Bruins v. Blues

    Yeah maybe it's just me, and maybe it's sour grapes, but I'm getting a strong Andrew Hammond vibe from him. He's got huge flaws in his game. All props to him for playing so well last night, but he was flaming garbage in Games 3 and 6 too. Bruins didn't do enough to expose his obvious flaws. I...
