Saturday wasn’t pretty. You needed your beer goggles to make that third period look good. But the Bruins did it. We were debating amongst ourselves here at Days Of Y’Orr in regards to Marc Savard. It was his first game back in nearly 2 months. Surely you couldn’t expect much from him, some of us said. Savard obviously had other ideas. Even as that douche Pierre McGuire was talking about how Savard needed to step up more, completely neglecting that just a couple weeks ago Marc Savard’s eyes and the sun were locked in an epic duel, Savard was burying the game winner in OT. We don’t need to tell you how that felt. Just look at the pictures of Savard’s face. Talk about a boost to the bench. Our theory is Savard heard our doubts and decided to prove us wrong. So you can thank Days of Y'Orr for that game winner. You're welcome. Big thanks to Chris Pronger for knocking Savard into next week early so all of our fears about how he would handle hits were out the window. But Savvy... quick request... please stop throwing checks and missing just to test yourself. It was terrifying. Not sure how these two teams are going to follow that up. Our beloved Bruins blew multiple 2 goal leads in their best efforts to be the Ottawa Senators in a Game 6 but pulled out the victory. But with every high, there is a (slight) low for the Bruins. Keeping with their theme this season Boston got Savard back, but lost another player. Sturmface is gone. Instead of using his speed to not score goals, he will be up in the press box not scoring goals after tearing his MCL and ACL. Ouch.

Sturm and Tom Brady reportedly were seen grabbing a beer and icing their knees afterwards.
