Bruins Fans Share Big Expectations

So, my little poll last night shows about 80% of respondents favoring Vancouver to win the series… but I suppose the opposite results are appearing on some Boston dude’s blog today, too.  I haven’t looked around the ‘net yet, but “unbiased” probably doesn’t apply to any of us. smile

Still, Boston fans are feeling seriously confident. 

The video below is from NESN, and catches the excitement in Boston after their big win last night.  (Not to mention, a whole lot of Bruins fans making some big predictions about kicking some Vancouver butt…)

Awesome to see the celebrations, even if these people are about to hate my team with the passion of a thousand suicide bombers. 

But I will say, they don’t seem to suffer from self-esteem issues for their team out there in Massachusetts. 

Unless I missed something, I think the majority of Boston is judging the Canucks’ chances somewhere south of “Fugetaboutit, Vancouver!” and perhaps somewhere slightly north of “I bet the Bruins can win this series in TWO games!”

Fair enough.  That’s pretty much my homeristic Canucks prediction, too…

Bring it, Boston!
