At least the power plays at the end of the game had a ton of good chances. Just couldn’t finish them unfortunately. It’s going to happen sometimes.

It wasn’t like they were up 4-0 or something. I don’t really think it’s fair to call it a “choke”.
Up 1 at home with 130 to go and an empty net, defensive breakdown and Swayman gives up a Charmin soft goal to tie it. OT is whatever although Bergy is the last person I expected to get his pocket picked in that situation. Fact is despite Buffalo's goalie making some insane stops Bruins should have won that game, instead they lost is despite being in control from the time Marchy scored the go-ahead goal. That's a choke in my book.

You and I have different standards of what “choke” means. To me a choke is an almost sure win that a team pisses away because the moment is too big for them. A goalie giving up a softy in game 36 of 82 in December, and then losing in a 3 on 3 doesn’t rise to that level for me.

Yes. But your book only has one chapter that gets repeated over and over and over again.
