BAH!!! - I Hate The Habs!!!

Last night In La Belle Province The Bruins fell to The Habs 1-0. This was a two fold hurtful loss in that it makes Boston's quest to the post season more difficult and the 2 extra points help Montreal in their own playoff aspirations.
Both goalies put on a clinic and were superb between the pipes. Just like most of the season Thomas was once again our best player. The only shot to get by him was when a Habs forward La ten undressed Aaron Ward with a beautiful move and got in alone to score.

The Bruins will now host Montreal on Thursday in the second part of this home and home series. Out of all the 79 home and home series between these two teams there has only been 23 sweeps. The last time there was a series sweep was in December of 1981 so a Bruins' victory on Thursday has statistics on their side (but I hate stats. - The Bruins have to play hard and earn their victory). The Bruins also have to stop squeezing their sticks so hard. They need to relax and have fun out there - in last nights game they were way to tense and worried more about making a mistake than creating a chance.

Game hilights:
- Great move for The Habs goal.
- Both goalies were fantastic.
- Bochenski hit the post.
- Tenkrat had a breakaway but got forced outside for a bad angle shot because he had to avoid a hip check from the ref(???).

3 Stars as picked by me:

1 - Latendresse
2 - Halak
3 - Thomas

This loss hurts The Bruins chances of the playoffs but they are still not done yet!
They have 10 games left and if they win 9 or 10 they will be in and if they win 8 they still have a slim chance. Lets not give up on them yet. I encourage all fans to send good vibes and happy thoughts their way and hopefully they can get on the winning streak they so desperately need.

Go Bruins Go!!!

i have to hand it to you for optimism jim!

i thought halek was solid, but was not challenged as much as i would have liked. read- the bruins may have made him look better than he is (they have a knack at that). the bruins just did not put enough pressure on and didnt seem to be in the right spot for second chances all night.

they sorely miss murray and axelsson right now. two of your top 6 six forwards down - during a crucial run - ouch.

coaching question. late in the second period thomas makes an amazing save with a little help from the post. the habs are buzzing, in the building you can hear an air of excitement. the next shift the pressure continues. TAKE A TIME OUT!!!!!!! they do not and the key mistake of the game and the only goal needed is scored.

neb - I have to be optimistic as I have no interest in baseball. When The Bruins are done my sports are over until NFL season (should be a good one - The Cowboys should be a powerhouse this year!) I need to hope they go as far as possible because I hate being without sports to watch. I will watch the playoffs but if The Bruins are not there I have no passion - does not matter who wins or loses!
Murray and The Axe being out are huge losses to this team - they are great players and are leaders - The B's need leadership now more than ever.

When the going gets tough, this team just can't get going. I hate to say it, but they really don't deserve to make the playoffs.

Doobie - I agree but half the teams that do make the playoffs don't deserve to be there either.

Big game tonight - A must win - time is getting short - need to start a winning streak NOW!!!
