What has happened to the bruins, here in the bowls of southern CT I don't get to see many games. Last night was only the 5th game of the season Iíve gotten to see. Early in the year they were out working everyone they played. Last night, against Washington, for two periods they went through the motions. Then in the 3rd they acted like they had a pair and outscored Washington 3-1, not enough though. Whatís it gonna take to get this team playing again.
Brick, wiener of the day now looking for a new sig.
Joe Thornton (in the Toronto Sun): "It's something we carry in our jockstraps, the determination to prove everyone wrong."
And how about following that up with giving up two goals in the last minute to slip into a tie? Hopefully, they are just on a little run of badness that will turn around quickly. There's still a long way to go.
He's Rolie Polie Olie - and in his world of curves and curls, he's the swellest kid around.
The Bruins did it backwards this year. They decided to have their goalies play on their heads at the beginning of the season, rather than down the stretch and into the playoffs. Shields and Grahame are back-ups, and the loss of Dafoe is now starting to show when the defense gives up more than 20 shots a game.
I want you to know, I agree with everything I've just said.
Keep in mind that the 'sufficiently talented' players still differed from team to team. Despite the smaller league, shitty teams still existed...just ask all of those Rangers, Bruins and Blackhawks teams that went years without sniffing the Cup.
