Following the game several Bruins players were wearing gear that featured a big Flintstones-style steak as the logo with the words ”Stay Hungry” prominently featured across the front of the cap and the leg of the shorts. Savard was wearing both the hat and the shorts during his post-game press briefing, and said that injured forward Marco Sturm came up with the design/logo idea while rehabbing from knee surgery.
“The energetic German came up with this,” said Savard, and then he pointed toward the shorts that he was wearing. “He made these too.”
Well, thank goodness for that.
Let's see how we got to that score.
The Bruins are on the powerplay with 7 minutes to go. They're set up in the offensive zone. The habs officially get the kill and the bruins shoot at the net. Caaaaaaaaaaaarreeeeeeeeeeeey is too slow and someone pokes it out from under his slowly lowering glove to Kessel, who taps it in.
About a minute and a half later, the Bruins dump it in. Lucic gets to it, and takes the hit to tap it to RYDERMANIA. RYDERMANIA can't score, so he does the intelligent thing and puts it on Krejci's stick. Krejci shows the world why Jack Edwards like to call him The Matrix.
A minute and a half later, Chris Higgins.
2-1. What a jerk.
We get out of the first 2-1 with 2 total penalties called, and none of them on Boston. Excellent.
During the intermission between periods, someone swipes your yellow towel while you're carrying beers back to your seat. Terrible manners.
Josh Gorges (who you may remember as the guy that threw bergeron into the net after the first goal a week ago) takes a penalty about 10 minutes in. There have been some good chances, and especially some good saves. But why do you give up a powerplay in the third of a tie game?
a: Because you are secretly a boston fan. Duh.
Well, the Bruins took some time, but not a whole lot, to put in the first powerplay goal of the game. Kessel to Savard, back up to Chara who one-times the slapper. The puck lights on fire and actually goes through Caaaaaaaaaaaaarrreeeeeeeeeeeeey. Right through him. Into the back of the net.
The habs would probably prefer to win this so they pull their goalie. Caaaaaaaarreeeeeeeeeeyyy goes to the bench, and the Bruins play the same D as before. Lucic picks it up in the neutral zone, and he and Kessel streak in on Patrice Brisebois. Brisebois plays the shot, so Lucic's got the pass. Lucic to Kessel. Empty net from 5 feet away.
Theft from a boston fan who's got 2 beers and can't defend themselves: Bad manners.
Theft from Alex Kovalev while he's still on the ice: Hilarious.
We at the hockey blog adventure believe in the double standard.
H/T to SCoC on this one.
