Here we are Bruins fans. It has been a long road, but for the second year in a row the B's are one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals. Just another step on the road to redemption.
Some of you out there are saying wah wah but last year they were up 3-0 and they lost wah wah. Get the fudge outta here. Now. That was last year. New year, new attitude.
The best possible thing that could've happened to the Bruins was that first round seven game series against Montreal. It mentally and physically prepared them for the grind of these playoffs. It taught them how to win, how to close. How to go for the throat.
Look at the Bruins. Look at how they came out and put their foot on the Flyers throat and kept it there. By the time the Flyers lucked out and beat Tim "God" Thomas for their only goal the game was well in hand. This is a different Bruins team. Maybe Philly wins Game 4 for pride. Maybe. But the Bruins are playing their best hockey of the season at the right time. Don't even come at us with the collapse word. Go watch baseball or something if that is your attitude.
We're not going to talk about last year here. That has been beat to death. The Bruins have a chance to clinch Friday. Your productiviy is going to be below zero the next couple of days. You're going to watch Marchand and Boychuk literally destroy Philly over and over until the puck drops for Game 4. You're going to watch each one of Thomas' 52 saves in Game 2.
Don't get cocky, but get excited. The Bruins appear to have finally learned their lesson from past failures. That doesn't guarantee a Cup or an Eastern Conference Finals win. But they are giving us more reason to be excited than they have in years. Going to be a long, long couple of days.
After the jump.... Thomas is a god, Marchand and Boychuk will destroy you and Bruins love faceoffs.....
