Motor City Madness

Amazing game this afternoon, but I just can't understand who these guys are. They play like the worst team in the league, and then the best. Too little too late I'm afraid, as even with the win they are still about six games out. Absent from the game with various injuries are Axelsson, Murray, and Donovan. Oh yeah the score; Bruins 6 - Red Wings 3

Some may have noticed I've been absent lately. I've had the flu big time; fever, body ache, the whole shebang. I'm still out of it but I had enough energy to post at least. It doesn't help our blog with neb on vacation, Doobie having a baby and Buff having personal issues. I figure by Monday or Tuesday most of us will be back and ready to post.

Great game all around for the team. Their defence was pretty good, they were aggressive, and best of all their offence was amazing. Tim Thomas, yeah he was amazing as usual, stopping 35 of 38 shots by Detroit. There were other great individual performances by Chuck Kobasew (1g, 1a), Savard (3a), Bergeron (1g, 1a), Sturm (2g, 1a), and Bochenski (2a). On defence Chara (+2, 4HT, 4BS) and Alberts (+1, 5HT, 3BS) lead the way.

My 3 stars;

1) Marco Sturm
2) Tim Thomas
3) Patrice Bergeron

I had no idea this game was even on national TV (well, at least on NBC in my area) until I came across it with 11 seconds left in the 2nd period.

What little I did see (I had family over to see the baby) was very impressive, most notably Andrew Alberts flying shoulder into the goal post to dislodge it just as a shot trickled past Thomas for a near score. It was a photo finish, but Alberts was able to dislodge the net just before the puck fluttered over the goal line. Fortunately, he was being pushed by a Red Wing when it happened, but you could tell he recognized what was going on and made the extra effort to prevent the goal. Now that's good heads-up hockey.

yeah that was a fun play. Easy to tell he made that extra leg kick to make sure he hit it in time. I don't think the puck was going in anyway. It was either going to hit the post or go by the net.

Thomas play great tonight and the only goal he had a chance to stop was the third.

I'll be back blogging tomorrow.
Had a hard couple of weeks that ended on Thurs. with some good news for a change. I was also busy playing in a soccer tournament all weekend.
Bruins are NOT done just yet. Are in a hole but have yet to be burried!!!

hey - one more day of vacation... i have seen parts of a bunch of games and have not been able to keep up with all my normal reading or thinking. my blogging efforts have been put into my travel blog. i wrote this teams playoff hopes off back in january when they lost some key games... but a five game win streak might change my mind (1 and counting). that said this game was fun and encouraging for next year if nothing else.....

Just when we are all ready to give up on them, they go and pull something like this! Like the rest of you I've been following this team closely since camp. But I have absolutely no clue who these guys are!

Did they win one for the coach? For Timmy? Because the pressure's mostly off?

(scratches head)

Get better treebob.

Even with important wins against NYR and the Scabs coming up this week and a half, they're done. Carolina may have an issue now with Ward being out, but that's still betting on the Bruins getting hot and EVERYONE ELSE getting cold.

Yeah, today was a nice win. And that's why they won't make the playoffs. Play like crap against the Flyers, then have one good period against the Wings... nope.

You know, I've had a look at a bunch of other blogs and most don't even have a post after the game against the Flyers. There's nothing at all about Detroit. Their angry dissapointed posts about how the Bruins will never win a playoff berth just hang there, like an ugly tapestry. It makes me wonder, did all those people give up and stop watching? That would be sad, because it was a really fun game!

I am disappointed that the Bruins will most likely not make the playoffs, but I have been preparing for that fact since Christmas. I still enjoy watching the games and writing about them. I'm sure if anybody on this blog saw the game they would have wrote about it.

I loved the game! Those games are encouraging because it shows me that the Bruins are a good team when they put their minds to it. It pisses me off too because they have zero consistency. None the less, I will continue to watch and write.
