Game 55 Recap: BRUINS 2 SHARKS 5 GOTTA PLAY ALL THREE PERIODS, GUYS

This was a great game until, well, let's talk about it when we get to it.

Claude Lemieux was Claude being Claude throughout the game. I think Julien has banned his team from fighting. Thomas vs. Nabokov was a good goalie duo. And the garden switched from sam winter to sam white ale. Boo.

Anyhow, 4 minutes into the game, The Bruins make some traffic in front, get a rebound, and Milan Lucic is sitting on the doorstep, waiting for his best friend peter puck to come home. He does and it's like in Calvin and Hobbes where hobbes tackles calvin after school.

1-0. You're wicked pumped, it feels like Lucic hasn't scored in a while.

Then about 3 minutes later, Rob Blake slaps one in, it bounces off of someone.
1-1. Thomas does this little ballerina spin move afterwards. He shoulda done another later, because after that he hunkers down and doesn't let in anything until the second intermission.

5 minutes left to go in the first, and Nokelllaaieeieiennnenanan and Lucic go into the zone on a change. Nokes shoots from the point, Nabokov stops it, but Lucic is there for the nice, juicy rebound.

2-1. It's like a nice juicy steak.

The rest of the period and the second period was filled with good, back and forth hockey.

The third period, the sharks took to the ice, and I'm still waiting for the bruins to show up for that one. Hooo boy, that's frustrating. Especially when some sharks fans are sitting right behind you.

Marleau
2-2
Michalek
2-3
Big Joe Thornton
2-4
Mike Grier (empty-netter)
2-5

Game.

Loss.

This isn't soccer, guys. There are 3 periods.

Somewhere in there, the Sharks PK got called for offsides.

This is the first time the bruins have lost by more than 2 goals all season. Woof. At least it was to the best team in the West, which is probably the stronger conference by a little bit.

Bruins don't play again until friday (devils) and not at home again until 2 weeks from now (panthers).

vs. SJS: 0-1-0
Record: 39-9-7 (L 2)
Home: 19-4-4 (L 2)
L10: 6-1-3
Feb: 3-1-1
GO BRUINS!

The first 16 minutes of the 3rd were a joke. The Bs never got the puck deeper than the hash marks. Poop.

I have stronger words than "poop" for it, but I try not to swear on the blog too too much.

Still, that was a pretty shitty third.

the third period was poppycock, balderdash, foolery, hogwash, malarkey... it's like we're boston sports fans or something.
