It is also how I will feel if Boston gets stuck in the dump, chase, cleared rut again on every powerplay.

Go Bruins!!

Dear Bruins & Lightning,

Wow. Game 7. A lot of excitement and electricity in the air. I'm looking forward to a good one as I'm sure you are too.

In seriousness though, the one of you that does emerge victorious has a very important job to do; beat the Vancouver Canucks. I don't care how you do it, I don't even care which one of you does it, the important thing is that it happens.

Whether it's Lucic pounding the sh*t out of Raffi Torres and Alex Burrows while Thomas hunkers down and shuts the door on the Sedins or whether it's St. Louis, Stamkos and Lecavalier humiliating Loungo on a nightly basis; I don't care.

So to both of you:

I agree with all of you so far. Each minute will drag until puck drop.

Please, whoever wins the East, beat Vancouver.

Yay hockey

so we'll finally get to see who is going to face the Cancuks for the Cup!

Tampa would make for more exciting end to end games but Boston would be epic.

GO HOCKEY!

I forgot to say the prayer last game, and we lost.

And shepherds we shall be, for thee my Lord for thee
Powerplays hath descended forth from thy hand
That our skates may swiftly carry out thy command
And we shall flow a river forth to thee
And teeming with goals shall it ever be
In nomine patri, et fili, et spiritu sancti.

Go B's!

8 hours, 21 minutes until game time. I've been up since 5 this morning. I can't sit still, my nerves are shot and I'm dying to crack open a beer. I've been saying "next year" for 19 years in a row and it all boils down to tonight.

Let's go Bruins! Earn that right to play for Lord Stanley's Cup! Shut them down!
 
2011-05-27 11:40:45 AM
Game time is more than 8 hours away and I'm already just sick to my stomach. I don't know how I'm going to handle this tonight.

Go Bruins. Please win.

Honestly, even if it weren't Van in the finals, I've been saying for a long time that the East has no farking chance against the West. I would say that even if my Habs had made it to the finals.

Dr. Clode, Please get your head out of your arse and play Seguin more than 10 minutes tonight, also you might want to let him play on at least 2 or 3 shifts on a power play, should the Bruins get any. Thanks.

I just hope the Bruins that were playing at the end of Game 6 show up. It took over two periods for them to amp up the pressure and not just dump and clear repeatedly. That's not going to cut it.

Hey y'all I have a serious question:

So I'm a rabid fan of my teams. NFL, NBA, and MLB. The kind of fandom that can be quite stressful. TV yelling, close the windows and doors, fanatic whisky drinking. You know the drill.

I was never really a hockey fan, but when the playoffs started I tuned in to check it out. I was pretty entertained, so I started watching more and more. After about a week of passive watching, I unintentionally blurted out my first "aw c'mon WTF is this bullshiat" at the TV.

Uh oh - here we go. I find myself getting into it. So here's the question: Like a smoker to a non-smoker, is it best I don't even start?

Should I get out while I still can? If you could erase all giving-a-fark and the stress that comes with it, would you?
 
2011-05-27 12:17:50 PM
Lets go Bolts!

Sorry Boston, I actually have a chance at getting Game 4 tickets to see the Canucks in Tampa without giving up an arm, a leg and a testicle.
 
2011-05-27 12:18:17 PM
Game 7!!!

Parents are coming in this evening for Memorial Day. I have tasked my children to keep them entertained during the game. However, I have no trust in them to do so. Hopefully I'll be able to get a few posts in during, especially if the game goes to OT, OOT or OOOT.

If not, I'll see you all for the finals!

Absolutely not. Not for a second. Stay in. Which team are you going with, at this early stage in your fandom?

Playoff hockey, especially what you will see tonight, is very exciting. Regular season hockey however is as boring as watching paint dry especially when a team is assured of a playoff spot or totally out of it.

It's too late. Welcome to the dark side. Now you need to see an NHL game live. Especially since the NFL and NBA are imploding for next season. The more the merrier, sit down and grab a beer.

It's too late, you can't bail now.
The cup is on the line.

Starting next season, you have 3 good teams in California to choose from.

As a side note:
There's no better sport to see live.
Even if you can't go to an NHL game. Minor & college games are awesome.
I go to the P-Bruins (my local AHL) several times a season and try to catch one Friars game too.
You'll see, you'll see..

I remember having to go to Germany when the Bruins were in the Finals against Edmonton (1989-90), leaving a couple of hours before game time, spending some stopover time in Frankfurt listening on AFRTN, then getting to my hotel room in Erlangen, turning on the TV and watching the German broadcast as the 3rd OT was starting.

I was just switching to a new blood pressure med, so I didn't dare sample the mini-bar, though I really wanted to.

No.

Hockey is the best sport in the world.

No other sport combines the need for talent and hard work the way hockey does.

No other sport is as beautiful to watch.

Nothing can compare to the raw speed and power that you experience when you go to a game in person.

There are no sounds quite like a perfect tape-to-tape pass, or the sound of a puck hitting the post.

The nausea I'll feel the whole game is 100% worth it.

Get into it.

Thank you, sir.
I don't feel so bad now.

I'm hoping to catch a glimpse of the game during my layover in Charlotte.
As much as I'd like to the see end of it, I sure don't want the game to go to triple OT. Not sure if I could handle it.

Watching hockey gives you a perfect excuse to drink September to June. You can use the 2-3 months off to sober up or you can start stocking up for the puck drop of next season.

Hallowed be thy name
Thy winning come, thy save be done
On home ice as it is away

Give us this day our daily win
Forgive us our penalties
As we forgive those who penalize against us

Lead us not into power plays
And deliver us from bad calls
For thine is the President's Trophy, The Mastadon and the Stanley Cup forever

This is make or break for the Bruins for a number of reasons.

1. They haven't been this far since 1992. They haven't advanced to the finals since 91. A long time.

2. During that long hiatus of pretty much inconsistent and often sucktastic performance, the organization has done its very best to try and kill the fan base. This team was irrelevant the bast decade with the success of the Pats, Red Sox and Celtics.

3. The Bruins have brought even the loyal fan base to the brink with historic collapses.

4. The past couple of seasons the ownership Jeremy Jacobs has spent to the cap and Chiarelli has brought in GOOD talent. The fan base was getting bigger, folks were getting on the bandwagon and learning to love the team.

5. If the Bruins lose tonight some of these fair-weather fans looking to be rewarded for once in their life time with a Stanley Cup will leave the Bruins en masse. exactly what the B's do not need, their fans bailing on them again, when ownership is finally spending money. When they bailed before they bailed because ownership bailed on the fans. This time it would be out of frustration and heartbreak.

6. With the Atlanta Thrashers moving to Winnipeg in the western conference next season, a western conference team will likely be moved east. That team would likely be the Detroit Red Wings. That would totally SUCK to have such a formidable opponent tossed into the east, screwing the Bruins chances of getting to the Cup finals again for another 30 years.

It is do or die. Tonight is the night. The Bruins need to beat the talented Lightning for the life of the franchise. If they lose in the finals against Vancouver it wouldn't hurt as bad. If they lose tonight, the window slams shut rather suddenly.

No way. Once you're hooked, you're hooked. There is no turning back. And as others have said, watching it on TV is one thing but seeing it live is so much better.
 
2011-05-27 12:51:35 PM
Okay, I have a question about Game 7(s) this year:

They made a big deal about how the 4 in the 1st round was the most in 16 years (apparently there were a record 6 (six!) seven-game series in 1992). [1(^)]

There had been, as of the day before Pittsburgh won its latest Cup, 128 seven-game series in the NHL playoffs overall. [2 ^]. There have been 10 in the past 2 years (4 last year, and the sixth this year tonight), bringing the total to 138 or 139, depending on whether [2] counts the Game 7 for which it was written.

My question is this: which NHL Playoffs season had the most Game 7s, and where does this year rank? My google-fu seems weak in this, and I don't really want to slog through 60 pages of Wikipedia...

Also, if you haven't seen it, Puck Daddy hosted a nifty video of Vancouver's reaction to the tying goal late in Game 6: Link (new window, action starts just after 30 seconds, but I kind of enjoyed the silence leading up to it, recalling how tense I was...)
 
2011-05-27 12:52:14 PM
My work is going to be a ghost town this afternoon. I wonder how early I can sneak out.

NH Liquor store run via back roads on the way home as 93 is probably going to be a G.D. parking lot from the MA/NH border to exit 4.

Canadian Club is in the cards, am open to other suggestions for spirits and/or wines.

Much as I'm rooting for the Yzerbolts, and as much as it's been an entertaining series, I still feel like they're competing over the right to lose to Vancouver in the finals.
