For the first ten minutes tonight you were probably pissed. B's looked flat and uninspired. All that talk about Julien putting the team through some hard practices and the Bruins turning around their fortunes against a desperate Devils team seemed empty.
The B's looked like they didn't get the memo. Through the first ten minutes Boston had one shot. One. That was all. They couldn't get through the neutral zone. Kovalchuk was allowed to hang out around the net on a powerplay without any Bruins player defending him. Easiest goal of the year for Kovalchuk.
Then the Bruins woke up, apparently angered by their subpar play. They harnessed that energy to dominate the rest of the game. Thomas showed he's not done for the season after so much talk he was coming back down to earth. Chara stepped up and led by example. Seguin showed why he should get extra ice time. Krejci dominated bitches. Lucic joined the 30 goal club.
And we were again wowed by the Bruins potential. Whether or not they can harness that effort and energy and carry it to Thursday's game against the Habs and into the playoffs remains to be seen. We'll find out soon.
For now, our dear Bruins pretty much officially ended the Devils season. They finally rose to the challenge under pressure. Suck it New Jersey.
After the jump..... Thomas is awesome, Chara is awesome, Lucic is awesome and your mom is a hooker.......
