This is it, ladies and gentlemen.
Nothing more left to save. Nothing more left to do but watch two teams duke it out to hold 35 pounds of glory above their heads
We're expecting everyone in the Bruins line-up to bring it in full force tonight. Tonight's the ultimate Do or Die. They'll play like it. They've faced how many Game 7s over the past several years? Feels like a 100. The team's used to it. This year has been Boston's year for Game 7s.
Recchi will be a beast tonight. He'll be tossing bodies in the corners and tipping pucks in front of Luongo like he's 20 years old again.
Thornton will be hungry and hitting folk every shift.
Thomas will be Thomas. He'll have the record for most saves in a post-season by the end of the first period. Conn Smyth is a given.
Chara's slapper will have some extra zest to it.
Boychuk will be tuning up the band and laying down some sweet hip checks.
You get the picture.
Since the start of the year we've said the Bruins had Unfinished Business to make up for from last year. And this post-season has been their Redepmtion Tour.
Well tonight they can finish that business and redeem themselves in the ultimate way.
There's been little game-to-game momentum this series but we think the Bruins bottled up some of that Game 6 dominance and took it on the flight with them. They'll remember what it takes to beat Vancouver and how to get to Luongo. Hometown crowd's not going to affect Boston tonight.
Tonight is all business.
Same as before. Don't fix what's not broken.
