Bruins On A Roll

from Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe,

The Bruins are undefeated since they escaped elimination May 13. That was the night it all kicked in. It was “The Miracle On Ice” of the New Millennium. Faced with what appeared to be certain extinction, the Bruins staged the comeback of the ages. They flipped the switch one last time. Claude Julien’s Dr. Jekyll-Mr. Hyde team became a monster that cannot be stopped.

“Since Toronto, no doubt,’’ said Julien when asked about his team’s new charge. “You don’t just see it on the ice. You feel it in the dressing room. This is a very focused group right now. The Jekyll-Hyde thing I haven’t seen since the Toronto series.’’

And now the Bruins are on the threshold of the conference finals and have a real shot at their second Stanley Cup in three seasons.

They have been real impressive.  The defensive style they must play to win against a goalie like Lundquist has worked well for them.  It seems like their entire team has bought into it.

Does it count when you are playing the Rangers?  My goodness they look like the most dysfunctional, uninterested team in the playoffs (besides the Caps, that is).

Exactly MS. Look at top lines.  Kreijci is a playoff leaderl.  Nash, Richards ain’t doin’ shit.

The Rangers have clocked out Torts.  They’re just not responding to him after that horseshit presser when he said that Hagelin, “...stinks.”

Yeah, I think Torts is gone after the season.

Rags couldn’t score at a Nymphomaniac Convention is what is making the Bruins look this good
