The Bruins just had nothing left. In the end they just ran out of gas. Yes they got eliminated by the Canadiens last night, but it is an effort they should be darn proud of. They played their butts off and gave the Canadiens and their fans fits. The experience the young Bruins players got is something they can't get in the regular season. It is a different game in the playoffs and they have that going forward. They don't have to spend the off season thinking of what might have been. Instead they can be proud of what they did accomplish and focus on next season. The Canadiens on the other can be proud of the fact they didn't completely meltdown and the fact they have fans who riot after ONE round in the playoffs. Stay classy Montreal, stay classy!
The first round of the playoffs will come to close tonight with two game 7's on the schedule. First up at 7pm ET is the Philadelphia Flyers @ the Washington Capitals. Washington was down 3 games to 1 in this series before fighting back and winning games 5 and 6 to force a game 7 tonight. The Caps have the home crowd on their side and I would bet it is going to be LOUD in that building tonight. Make sure you wear your ear plugs Grandma. If the Caps can win this game they will become only the 21 st team in NHL history to come back from a 3 games to 1 deficit in the playoffs. Will Alexander the Great lead his team to victory tonight? I sure hope so cause I love to watch him celebrate.Next up at 10PM ET is the Calgary Flames @ the San Jose Sharks. I have to give San Jose the slight edge in this game just because they are playing at home. These are two good teams though so we could be in for a real treat. My heart wants San Jose to win this game so bad, but I just don't know. GO SHARKS GO!!
