I felt bad for Rene Rancourt.
 
2013-04-18 03:11:56 AM
I'm sure he got paid anyway, jay.

Touching scene.

I almost felt bad cheering for the Sabres.  Almost.
 
2013-04-18 04:30:35 AM
wonder if anyone looted anything during the anthem?

Not as cool as Jersey fans singing Fandango's theme!

J/K Good on ya, Boston.

IMO, the National Anthem should be a sing-along. Irks me when Ghetto-Yodelers Performing Artists 'stylize' it.

Nice gesture for both teams to come out together to Center Ice at the end of the game to salute the fans.

Nice show of unity and way to say that it's just a game.

Actually, I just heard the replay and the announcer said, "Sing loudly along with Rene Rancourt" so it was to be expected.

At first I just thought it was his big moment to shine and that he had given it up because everybody started singing.

The crowd for a hockey game in Boston is... monochromatic.

Y'all got a lotta white folks up there.

//Just sayin'.

Nice... Loved the teams saluting the fans at the end of the game, too.

Wished the Bruins could have held onto the lead and taken first place in the division, but oh, well... It was a hell of a game and the Bruins clinched, so all in all, not a bad night.

they have it right now due to two games in hand, and I think they hold the tiebreak as well (?)

In other news, thousands of fans sing along to a beer-drinking ditty.

Can everybody see your flaaaggggg
Through the glare, it does not lagggg
You wanna know if you still see
The banner o'er the land of the free
You wanna know if everybody sees your flagggg...

In hockey terms, anyway, the Sabres needed the two points more.


The Bruins have their playoff spot locked-up, while the Sabres are clinging to their playoff lives. Any type of loss last night would have basically killed Buffalo's slim playoff hopes. As it is, if they win out their last four, they have still have a shot.


If its any consolation for the Boston crowd, at least they got an entertaining game and the OTL point that officially clinched the playoffs for them.

Yeah, it wasn't really a matter of if, but when...

Still not feeling great about their chances in the playoffs... They're getting healthier with Bergeron and Marchand back in the line up, but their play is still really sloppy. Lots of turnovers, getting pinned in their own end by aggressive forechecking, which they really haven't been able to effectively counter all season it seems, and lack of production from guys who should be contributing more - Lucic and Horton in particular.

Guess we'll see how it pans out.

Oh, absolutely. Great game. Miller kept them in it early on in the First and they responded well. Good hard physical game with some great defense on both sides. My kind of hockey.

Maybe I'm cynical, but having lived through 9/11, Katrina, London, Madrid, Bali, etc, etc etc, I don't get the "national tragedy" feeling here.

I hear ya - I'm more concerned about the amount of ice time they'll have to have before the playoffs - one blizzard and the marathon incident have left them with the two makeups games, and they were cramming in a lot at the back half of the season as it was anyways.

Because your obviously becoming too desensitized to death by terrorist (foreign or domestic)?

Because kids were farking killed and lost limbs and if it makes people feel better to sing the national anthem of their country then why the fark not? What ELSE are they supposed to do?

Because America, Fark yeah?

Doc Daneeka:


Yeah, that was cool. Even with the loss, at least it was a good game. Miller stood on his head, and Kuhdobin(sp) made some good saves; especially that glover he threw.

Though I'm seriously doubtful of the Bruins getting very far in the playoffs at this point.

Oh yeah, fatigue is going to be a big factor this year, I think, for all teams...

On another note, If they stay in Fourth, looks like it'll be Ottawa or... Toronto in the first round? Is that right? Wow... Either one of those teams have a good shot at winning 4 out of 7 against the Bruins.

Should be a hell of a series, either way.

It was his shining moment. Conducting the crowd, head up and proud. Because the coverage cut away only one question remains for me. How many fist pumps?

This is what I took away too. Overall good game and despite another 3rd period brainfart, the Bs stamped their ticket to the post season.

Bergy had a few missed opportunities and lost the handle again during his shoot out attempt but he had nice return.

This has to be one of the poorest uses of the Hero tag ever.  Yes, it's nice that Bruins fans sang the National Anthem.  Heroic?  Oh, please.

I was about to say the same thing. I thought it was normal to sing along, I mean I don't sing as loudly because I would deserve to be hit multiple times for my singing voice, but still.

Don't get me wrong, epitome of the cool tag. If not for the on words for hockey (bad joke)

They do this all the time in Canada without prompting from the announcer.  It is pretty cool.  I guess Canadians love their country more that the folks in the US.   The cheering they do in Chicago during the national anthem should be an embarrassment to any civilized society but we are talking about Chicago here.

I'm really hoping this Soderberg kid can fit into the system and provide a scoring spark. If he's as good as I keep hearing Chiarelli and Neely say he is, maybe he can get them over the top.

I think as long as the cards fall their way and they don't have to face Buffalo or Pitt along the way, they can make the Cup, but I doubt they'd win it all.

You hockey guys love your bearded operatic men singing your anthems.

Me? I'll take simple, no frills, no personal inflections and stylezations (is that even a word?). Sung by a lady.

Something like this.

Stop inflecting your voice and sing the damn song.

Notable exceptions are of course Whitney Huston, Carl Lewis and Marvin Gaye

It's when you get to this horsecrap I have true problems.

No shiat... Been hearing about him for so long now, the little farker better be good. : )

Pittsburgh's next on the schedule, too, and they just tuned on the Habs (loved the Subban turtle, BTW)...

I'm hoping they get into the groove for the playoffs, but again, yeah, I'm not holding my breathe. They're just not firing on all cylinders this year.

Completely ignored subplot:

Because the game between the Pacers and Celtics was canceled, rather than rescheduled, the Pacers clinched the 3 seed, which means that the Nets have to play Chicago in the first round, and if they make it through that, they have to play Miami in the second round.

If the Pacers had lost that game, then the Nets would have tied them, and by virtue of their 3-0 record against the Pacers during the season, they'd have the 3 seed, which means the Hawks in the first round and they miss the Heat until the ECF assuming both teams make it that far.

Not that it's a guarantee the Celtics beat the Pacers, but for the NBA to completely eliminate the possibility for the Nets is pretty f*cked up.
