I don't watch hockey and all but I hear they were doing a choke job and are now going to face the Maple Leafs in the playoffs? And everyone is fearful of the Leafs.
But go Bruins!!
Eh. The Bs played spectacular hockey to catch Tampa in the last week, before falling back to the second seed. They lost to a decent Florida team; it was a rough game, but I wouldn’t call it a choke job.
I’m quite proud of the way they’ve played despite being decimated by injuries.
Yeah, it sucks that they lost last night since I really, really wanted them to play an "easier" Devils team than Maple Leafs in the 1st round.
That said, they've been dealing with injuries for a bit and the schedule overall has been rough for them the past 3 or so weeks.
And I'm at least encouraged they played exceptionally in the 3rd period. Of course, I'm upset they couldn't replicate that earlier in the game, but at least it shows they are capable of turning it on still. Unfortunately they just blew so many close chances in the 3rd (like Pastrnak's tip being just an inch away from the net and Krejci also missing a deflection on net). If one of those bounces our way it could have been a different outcome. Oh well.
I still think we beat TOR in 6 games but we'll have to play better than we have recently. Should be a physical series so I also hope we can stay relatively healthy throughout.
I'm also glad that Game 2 is on NBC, since my TV package is basic and doesn't carry NESN and NBCSN lol (so I could watch on TV instead of having to watch online streams).
