Let's face it. The Bruins only showed up for the third period last night. Not sure what was said in the locker room, but it lit a fire under their ass. They tired the game only to lose anyways. They deserved to lose; they played like crap.
Good news is they were able to do in 10 minutes what it took the Caps to do in 40.
But poor Tuukka Rask. Kid gets tossed in a spiraling game when the team is down three goals. Bs tie. He gives up one goal and gets hit with the loss. While Thomas still has a perfect record.
Life isn't fair. C'est la vie! as Bergeron would say.
Not that Thomas was to blame either. Giving up a 3-on-1 while you're on the power play is Bush League
We know the media were getting a boner at the idea of a Thomas vs. Halak (early-Vezina candidates) match-up, but Two-Us-Two-Ks-Two-points should get the start tonight. We expect Rask to come out solid. Last night was a nice warm up; let him brush off the rust.
If you're near the Boston area, be sure to hit up the Boston Sports Blogapolooza II over at the Baseball Tavern by Kenmore Sq. Days of Y'Orr's own Jon Fucile will be in attendance to talk hockey during the Bruins/hockey panel discussion.
