1-32 Never Felt So Good

I have harped on the Bruins throughout the playoffs for their awful power play.  But after tonight, the Bruins are one win away from the Eastern Conference Finals.  Somewhere they haven’t been in nearly 20 years.  When push comes to shove, I obviously care more about the final score than I do about the power play.  Because of the Bruins inspired play on 5-5 situations, they have a chance of securing a date with the Tampa Bay Lightning with the winner punching a ticket to compete or Lord Stanley’s Cup. In celebration of the power play goal here is a safe for work picture of Nathan Horton’s wife…and Nathan Horton.

Quick recap of Game 3: Boston 5 Philadelphia 1

The Bruins scored 2 goals in the first minute and three seconds of the game and never looked back.

Brian Boucher got the hook midway through the second period as the Bruins put their fourth tally on the board.

Zdeno Chara was excellent tonight.  2 goals, 1 assist, and a plus 4 rating.

Tim Thomas is in the zone.  Two nights after saving 52 shots he saved 37 tonight.

I have learned that this is team is not even close to last year’s team.  Tazzi was right about that 100%.  Last year the Bruins had Steve Begin and Daniel Paille on their first lines at this time.  This year they have a healthy David Krejci and Nathan Horton.  I’d say that’s an upgrade.

Expect to see Sergei Bobrovsky in net for the Flyers Friday night.  Not that I think he will make a difference.

The Bruins have a chance to sweep the Flyers on home ice Friday night.  Being down 2-0 to the Canadiens is ancient history.  This team is fired up, flying high, and have a killer instinct.  All qualities I had serious doubts about going into the playoffs.  As usual, I was wrong.
