Let me sum up the B's offense:
yup. Blank. B's lose, 1-0. 0 for 5 on the powerless play. Minnesota has suggested more than once that the Bruins should start declining penalties like in football. And Lundqvist always looks unstoppable to me. The Bruins just haven't really figured him out yet. He is 11-3-2 against Boston in his career with a GAA well under 2 (Yahoo! has him at 1.42, but that was before today's shutout.) The B's best chance probably came when Sturm shanked a backhand after he got Lundqvist to go down on a breakaway. The Sobotka crash line wasn't as good today, and yeah, the team skated well, but a minor defensive blunder (Wheels) and a Chara screen led to Gaborik's goal. I was going to start a rant about how many members of the New York Rangers are just complete pieces of shit (Avery, Brash, Dubinsky, Callahan, Nigel Dawes - even though he plays for the Flames now, Nigel Dawes is still a putz), but then I remembered that even New York hates the Rangers.
- Andrew Ladd of the Blackhawks smokes Matt D'Agostini. It warms the cockles of my heart to see any Canadien get their shit re-arranged, but damn.
- I'm actually bothering to watch the Celtics play, uh, the New Orleans somethings. New Orleans Jazz? The NBA has relaxed their traveling rules, but I can't tell the difference. Everyone's walking out there. Man, the NBA game is a shit game and has been ever since Reggie Lewis died.
- Not like it matters to anyone, really, but MSG's pretty overrated if ya ask me. MSG needs to see the recchin ball soon. Built in 1968, it's been renovated a few times, and will be renovated again in 2012. Just knock that thing down and start over. In an age where new arenas get built even if there are no teams to fill it, you'd think they would have razed/rebuilt MSG at least once in the past 40+ years.
