Jesus Saves, Satan Scores

Just can't get enough of the Satan puns, huh? Last night, the B's kept moving forward and beat the Flyers, 3-2. First goal was scored by Boychuk (slowly turning into Manchuk) immediately after a faceoff win by Bergeron (who owned Mike Richards at the faceoff dot, going 16 for 22 (72.7% - gaudy)). It wasn't his trademark slapshot BOMB, but rather a quick wrist shot with about 100 people in front of the net. Boucher saw it late, if he saw it at all, and 1-0 B's. Then Sobotka messed up big time on a crummy back-pass to Wideman, and the Flyers stayed in the zone, Briere throws a pick on Hunwick, and Mike Richards scores to tie it at 1. 2nd period, Satan scored (again) to put the B's up, 2-1. To finish the period, Briere raced down the wing with Satan providing minimal resistance and he picked a corner to tie the game at 2. 3rd period Lootch scored on a turnaround slapper to put the B's ahead with just a little over 2 minutes left.
random crap
  • Darren Dreger reports the NHL is cracking down on diving during the playoffs. Maxim Lapierre of Montreal has already been caught twice.
  • Since these games were on Vs., I can't watch the replays in the morning like they are on NESN, so I tend to forget things.
  • Aaron Ward talked to Toucher & Rich this morning. The self-admitted media whore is doing work for Vs. and will be on during Friday/Saturday games.
  • Oh man, doesn't Carcillo make you want to kick the TV? After Savvy took a swipe at Boucher's glove, Carcillo went bonkers and went after Savvy. Later reports indicated that Savvy bit Carcillo, etc. Also, allegedly Mike Richards promised to Savvy that they'd take him out for another 6 months. Yet still, we have no line brawl.
  • Crowd was back to normal volume last night after Saturday's less-crazy game.
  • I figure that Philly will feel emboldened by being in their own house with their own batshit fans, and they will take more shots at the B's in Games 3 & 4.
  • Mike Richards vs. Patrice Bergeron, who do you put on your team?
  • Sections 313-314 keeps doing, ah, "Here we go Bruins, here we go [clap clap]". Lame. Too many syllables in your chant is anti-climactic. Stick to "Let's go Broo-inz [clap clap clapclapclap]".
  • You could totally suck at your sport in this town, but if you have a long vowel in your name, you're golden. Yoook. Looootch. Toook.
