Sputtering over Minnesota


Good morning and, once again, welcome aboard Spoked B Airlines, the official airline of the Boston Bruins' playoff hopes.

As you may have noticed recently, we appear to be losing some speed. The problem initially started Tuesday in Boston when we had problems getting off the tarmac and then wound up losing one of our engines. We're also still feeling some after effects after flying over St. Paul. In addition to that, our final destination has muddied a bit and we're not quite sure if we're going to ultimately wind up in Manhattan, Raleigh or Toronto. Heck, there's even a chance it could be in Montreal (a despicable place, by the way) or Sunrise, Florida.

The good news is that this plane is still flying and that our destination...wherever that may still very much within reach. The other jet fuel additives are still providing some boost (this Bochenski Blast is something else!) and we've just opened up the Koba Stew to see what additional punch it can provide us. I assure you, as long as we've got fuel, this airline is going to keep flying.

So sit back and enjoy the flight. The ruins of Philadelphia will be coming into view tomorrow. Hopefully we can pick up some speed when we pass over.

Oh, and please pay no mind to Mr. Kessel racing down the aisle on a food cart. He's just happy to be here.

I'm beginning to doubt the B's will make the playoffs. But just for fun:

Given how they've played this year this is how a first round playoff series might go for our B's:

Game 1: they come out befuddled and confused and play poorly. Timmy is hung out to dry by the D. They spend the whole game in the box, including two 5-on-3's that come when Chara shoots the puck over the glass on the PK. It's a humiliating 4-1 loss.

Games 2 and 3: they look like a champion, working hard, playing good strong defense, and scoring loads of goals, including an OT winner. Timmy plays strongly. Both games are wins. Fans start to think they might actually win the series...

Game 4: this is the game they forget to show up for. An embarrassing loss 7-1 in which we see Timmy relieved in the second period after giving up 4 goals in the first. Some dolts think its his fault, but most realize that his team let him down.

Game 5: They play a strong game, maybe the strongest of the series. Timmy stands on his head! But they lose by a fluke goal early in the 3rd when a puck bounces off of Ference's skate. It's a hard loss 1-0.

Game 6: They give it a good effort, but don't play their best. Their play isn't exactly bad, but there's no passion from anyone. It's a 4-1 loss.

Series over. A punch-line would go good here, but I'm too depressed to to come up with anything funny! And yeah, I know, I ought to just start my own blog.
