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.
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.

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)
