Game 43 Recap: BRUINS 3 HABS 1 CHARA CHARA CHARA THOMAS THOMAS THOMAS KREJCI KREJCI

A wonderful game. I hope the Habs fan behind me made it home safe and sound. With a loss in hand. It's one of those things that just makes me smile. The Bruins beat the Habs in Boston, as they tend to do, pushing the all-time record to 160-131-56-2 in Boston. Let's check out how it happened.

First period was all Thomas. 17 shots, 17 saves. Jaro Halak takes it easy with 9 shots, 9 saves.
Oh, and Mark Stuart fights a guy:

Second Period, Habs get a powerplay. One of the Kotsyitititititittisins manages to deflect a shot in off his skate while the 4 PKers stand around, scratching their heads.
0-1. You're remembering last year, and how this used to turn out.

But then the refs decide it's time for a powerplay for the bruins.
Zdeno Chara works the front of the net.

1-1. You're happy the 100 habs fans in the place boo chara, it only makes him angry.

Speaking of which, The habs draw a 5 minute major for boarding. Then there are about 5 other penalties called, and the Bruins end up with a 5-on-3. Wideman and Chara pass back and forth across the circles, then Chara bombs it in there.

2-1. Zdeno Chara Hat Trick Watch: Activate.

The third period has a lot of back and forth, and the Habs get some good shots on goal. A lot of clogging, and then the puck squirts out to the side stuff. After one of those attempts with a little over a minute to go, Wheeler and Ryder go streaking up, with only one defender in front of them. Wheeler feeds through two defenders (a second comes up behind) but Ryder is denied. Luckily, Ryder cares more about a team win than poetic justice, so he picks up the rebound and feeds it to Krejci, who pounds it in.

3-1. 1:11 to go in the game.

1:11 passes.

Game.

WIN!

The wheeler-Krejci-Rider line was a threat every shift. Ridiculous.

The best part is you could be talking about all season.

Also, Tim Thomas is 15 goddamn feet tall.
