(Note: I like to keep the homepage fairly short, but didn't want to delete all of the playoff coverage. This is content about the ECF series against Tampa as it appeared on the home page at various times, just without the embedded YouTubes.)

GAME 7: HORTON HEARS A "WOO!" AS B'S ADVANCE TO THE CUP FINALS

TIME TO GO: DO IT NOW
  • 5/27/11: Here we are: after a regular season of 82 games plus 17 additional playoff games, it all boils down to tonight. Game 7. Win and go on to the Stanley Cup Finals; lose and spend the summer wondering what went wrong. The B's have won two of their three home games this series, and won a Game 7 at home earlier in the playoffs againt Montreal. Will they do it again? We'll know in a few hours. We'll know if Milan Lucic gets to play for a Stanley Cup in his home province; if Mark Recchi gets one last shot at a Cup before retiring; if Tim Thomas can prove the doubters wrong by winning the ultimate prize; and if this group of Bruins is truly worthy of a shot at the Cup. One game to make or break a season. Do it now.

GAME 6: SPECIAL TEAMS & POOR DECISIONS DOOM B'S AS TAMPA FORCES A GAME 7

GAME 5: THOMAS, HORTON & MARCHAND PUT TAMPA ON THE BRINK OF ELIMINATION

GAME 4: A 3-0 LEAD IS SAFE, RIGHT? RIGHT?

GAME 3: BERGERON RETURNS, THOMAS BLANKS BOLTS AS B'S TAKE A 2-1 LEAD

GAME 2: TYLER SEGUIN STEALS THE SHOW AS THE B'S TIE THE SERIES AT ONE

GAME 1: THREE QUICK STRIKES DOOM B'S

ROUND 3 PREVIEW: B'S VS. BOLTS

  • 5/13/11: Boy, it seems like it's been forever since the Bruins have taken to the ice, huh? In reality, it's only been seven days, and when one considers that B's fans have waited 19 years for a return to the Eastern Conference Finals, a week's not so bad. Finally, Bruins hockey returns tomorrow night when the B's and the Lightning drop the puck on the NHL's third round and begin the battle for the right to represent the Eastern Conference in the Stanley Cup Finals. Both teams will be coming off of long layoffs, so it'll be interesting to see who shakes off the cobwebs first. Whereas the first two rounds featured animosity (Montreal) and revenge (Philly), this series will be more about hockey than anything else. I can't really think of many reasons to dislike Tampa other than they occasionally rival Montreal in their diving abilities and their goalie looks like a homeless man. Good enough for me!
