Game 49 Review: Bluejackets 3 Bruins 2 Refs 1 WHY YES I DO THINK 'POOP' IS AN ACCURATE DESCRIPTION

I think this just about sums it up:
I don't want to really talk about the game, so here's the recap in video form. Discussion post-video:
But let's not get crazy about it. Everyone loves watching bushkorn go crazy but nobody wants to be him. So let's get some rationale here. First of all, the Bruins are still on pace for a playoff spot with all their awful play recently. Granted, they'll have to start picking up, and the 07-08 team has caught up to them. However, the overall stats bear out that they're in sixth right now in points percentage and SRS. The sharks have passed them in PK supremacy but they're still best in the east in that (though buffalo is hot on their tails).

The Lucic fight wasn't exactly highlight-reel material but good for him for playing "pissed off hockey" like he said. I would have liked "goal-scoring hockey" or "game-winning hockey" but I guess it's something. Anyhow the big story here is that the refs called high-sticking on Lucic with 1:something to go in the third in a tie game when it was a different-colored stick.

The real story there is that at 4:02 of that video up there, you can see where if Krejci doesn't straight-up miss the net I'm high-fiving everyone around me and we don't have to be tied 2-2 with 1:something to go and getting shitty calls.

I was pissed about that last night, and it's an absolutely terrible way to lose a game, but I've calmed down now and I know that game 50 is coming up tomorrow morning (or close to...) and, well, time to work for those 2 points.

I've tried my hardest to make some sense of last night but that's all I can come up with.

At the very least the Bs get a phone call and some 30 Rock love. Whatever. Next game.
