Yet Another Game 7

When I became a Bruins fan a few years ago, I never thought it would be this stressful. I figured it’d be something to watch when the Redsox weren’t playing. I had known about their past their failures since Bobby Orr scored that memorable overtime goal against the Blues in 1970. In fact when I was in Boston this past summer I saw a 4 foot Bobby Orr doll for $800 and if I was someone like Krantz or JoeTall I think I would’ve bought it instantly.

However to be honest the last 3 years of being a Bruins fan have been torture. I mean I know I’m nitpicking here since they’ve made the playoffs all 3 years and I’ve only been a fan for that long however, watching NHL playoffs games with an invested interest is really an experience unlike anything else. Each goal goals along with a euphoric fist pump or something of that nature. It’s impossible not to get wrapped up in it and it’s extremely devastating when your team loses.

It’s also a sport where upsets happen, a lot. The most common theme in these upsets are a hot goaltender. You can see what Halak has done this year for Montreal. So as a result you can never been extremely confident going into a playoff series. Last year I thought the Bruins were going to roll over Carolina in the Eastern Conference Semis and they were upset in cruel fashion. In fact it’s easy to argue that Scott Walker, the guy who scored the GWG in OT shouldn’t even have been playing.

But back to my point, while I don’t lose sleep or replay each moment of the previous nights game in my mind like I do with the Redsox, I’m still pretty heavily emotionally invested in the Bruins. So this year when they went up 3-0 against Philly my first thought was to close out the series ASAP, get some rest, and be ready to go for the winner of the Pens/Habs series.

Unfortunately in game 3, David Krejci one of the Bruins most valuable offensive players broke his wrist and is out for the season. Additionally the Flyers Simon Gagne came back for game 4 for the Flyers. These two teams were already evenly matched going into the series and they both had injury riddled seasons. The loss of Krejci and the addition of Gagne really swung the series especially after the Bruins couldn’t close it out in game 4.

So now for the seventh time in NHL history there will be a game 7 after a team was up 3-0. As a Redsox fan I remember this feeling very well from the other side of the fence, I’d be willing to bet Flyers fans feel great about their chances right now. On the plus side, game 7 is at home and hopefully the Bruins can snap out of their offensive funk. Scoring the first goal will be imperative tomorrow night and I’m sure I won’t have any nails left by the end of it.

If the Bruins somehow can pull it off tomorrow, a series against the hated Habs for the right to represent the Eastern Confernce in the Stanley Cup Finals would be epic. It’s something I hope we’re able to see. In the mean time, I wish I had been warned about how difficult it is to make it through the NHL playoffs before I became a fan. I guess I’m fortunate I wasn’t a Bruins fan from the start, as they haven’t been to a ECF since 1992 and that would make tomorrow nights game even tougher to watch.

In the meantime, go Bruins!! Please jump ahead early tomorrow, a 4-1 win would be fantastic.
