BB was game 2, Orr and Sanderson were game 5.Is the consensus that we see TB12 waving the flag tonight?
Who waved in Games 1 + 2? (I know BB waved in Game 5).
Are you a native Canuck? If not, wtf?I don't know much about hockey, but I do know Boston sports and I'm along for the ride to glory forever. Last time the Bruins won the Cup I lived in Vancouver and dutifully rooted for the Canucks. 2011 was decidedly bittersweet, with the delicate taint of tear gas. This time, I'm all in.
And if by ill fortune we lose, don't riot.
That's a crazy development. Didn't expect this. Clifton apparently the one out.Gryz has been cleared and Cassidy says it's likely he's in.
Jesus Christ that's like the death star of mojoTB12 wearing Ortiz' 34.
Whoa.Gryz has been cleared and Cassidy says it's likely he's in.
I'm with you in spirit, but...Krejci's number retired?Win tomorrow and so many things come to light. Bergy and Z cement their Hall of Fame status. Marchand gets on that track. Krejci gets 46 in the rafters. Rask gets 40 into the rafters and shuts all the haters up forever. McAvoy gets the torch and becomes the next 10-15 year leader of this franchise and Carlo joins him on that 1st D pairing. Pasta is finally recognized league wide as one of the best young players in the game. Cassidy joins Cora and Belichick in the club.
60 minutes away from immortality. This season started in China and can end with a parade. Play freely and just concentrate on getting shots on Binnington and jumping on the juicy rebounds. The ice will be bad so don't try to be too cute with too many passes. Get as many pucks on net and see what happens. Take the fight to them.
We're fucking winning the Stanley Cup tomorrow.
With Middleton and O'Reilly retired (although O'Reilly also had notable coaching time), it's certainly not implausible. Just not one that I really considered. I always considered Middleton and O'Reilly to be the reps from that 70s/early 80s period which was a great time despite not winning the Cup. With Chara, Bergeron, Rask, and probably Marchand ultimately being retired at some point in the next 10 years, the 2010-2020 Bruins era will be amply represented. I'd say it's a 50/50 chance.If Nifty's number (988 pts in 1005 games RS, 100 pts in 114 games Playoffs) is retired, Krejci's (643 pts in 850 games RS, 102+ pts in 131+ games Playoffs) should be in the conversation with at least one Cup considered.
Krejci's time under Julien also really suppressed his offensive output in the regular season... probably played 75% of the average TOI that Middleton got.
