Still paying for dirty Marchand plays from like 5+ years ago, and still have the reputation of the team of long gone players like Lucic and Horton and Thornton. It’s fucking insane.
If I was Bruce I’d start with “Do you mother fuckers want to go home? Because if you don’t start playing, you’re going home Sunday night.”These last 20 minutes should be about deciding how they want the rest of the series to go. There's plenty of veteran leadership and they need to be pretty vocal about this bullshit.
They easily could have gotten Tampa in this round no matter what happened in the round robin.
Humiliating the Leafs in three different Gane 7s was bound to have consequences. Toronto wasn’t going to stand for that forever.This is why as an organization, you have to figure out why you’re team is getting screwed by the refs three years in a row and fix it. Because eventually, the guys throw their hands up and say fuck it why am I working hard.
Yup. Halak keeping them afloat in game 1 was enormous - doesn't feel like they'll only be down 2-1 at the end of this one.Officiating or not, the Bruins have been dominated for the better part of 3 games here. They were in line for this kind of drubbing. Need some kind of response here, they are fortunate they're still in the series.
I chalk tonight up to one team being allowed to play and the other not so much. The other two were 1 goal games.Officiating or not, the Bruins have been dominated for the better part of 3 games here.
