Uggggh..... I have a theory that the Bruins really do feed off the crowd, and when the crowd is pretty dead (like it has been for a good portion of the games) it brings the Bruins down too. So get into it, attendees! You're not sitting on the couch/in a bar anymore! The players are RIGHT THERE and if you yell loud enough with your section or have expensive tickets near the ice, you can give or take momentum. Let's do a quick spin through the game here.
Kobasew taps it in.
Then Scottie Upshall scores one to tie it up.
1-1. This isn't tuesday's post.
Then Reinprecht gets one in the second.
The Bruins look pretty flat until the garden starts hopping with 10 minutes to go. After most of the game, people are starting to cheer. The Jumbotron applause sign goes crazy. And the Bruins pick up their game. The last 5 minutes or so is some of the best Bruins hockey I've seen in a while.
Too bad they don't score.
Here's Coach Julien on the whole thing:
And of course, after the game you went to see Watchmen. I liked it a lot, not everyone I went with did. Whatever.
