Game 12 Recap: Bruins 5 Stars 1 OTT SUCKS

5-1, bitches.
This game was ridiculous.  If you missed it Steve Ott overshadowed the pure douchebaggery of Sean Avery in a big way, and refused to fight both Thornton and Lucic.  So Ference had to crush him and then Savard (!) starts wailing on Avery.  Let's look at the penalty sheet, thanks to hockey-reference.com:

12:50DALBrenden Morrow (2 minutes for hooking)
Sturm bookends the game with 2 goals, keep him on the line with krecji and wheeler.  When their third line has to defend THE GERMAN, there's really no stopping him. 



Mar-Ty...  Mar-Ty...  Mar-Ty...

Hubhockey has the youtube video done by dafoomie about the game.

I still hate the stars, and I really liked this game.  Mike Modano didn't.

Thomas was solid, except that one goal in the first period that Avery shot from the blueline.  You could see even he didn't like that goal.

Record: 6-3-3
Home Record: 2-1-1
L10: 5-2-3
GO BRUINS!

There's nothing like seeing Avery's teamates give a 6% effort in pulling Bruins off him in a scrum.

Turco has looked shaky this year, although he has chosen to blame the Stars' defensement for "trying to be goalies".

I would blame Turco "trying to be a defenseman" and leaving the net all the time...but I hate the stars, so it works for me.
