It’s obvious the Bruins can compete with any team in the playoffs. But as I’ve said before, they can’t take nights off. Especially in the playoffs. Last night was what they had been doing for most of the season. Allowing Carolina just 19 shots on net, they finished every check and intimidated the Hurricanes all game long to a 4-0 win that gives them another day of life in the NHL Playoffs. Once down 3-games to one, the Boston Bruins have never comeback to win the series. Can they do it in the next three days? That remains to be seen but they must continue this kind of play otherwise it ain’t gonna happen. Now they must go back to North Carolina and fight off elimination and the hostile crowd one more time. Win, and game seven at the Garden. Sounds easy doesn’t it! It was good to see the Bruins come out with energy and led by Milan Lucic in the hitting department not give their opponent an inch of extra room. It was everything that they had in game one and lost it for three straight games. Tim Thomas was sharp in recording his first ever NHL Playoff shutoutIt will be interesting to see if they come out just like that in Raleigh. Aaron Ward did travel with the team and Chara seems none the worse for wear after both took hard cheap shots from the Hurricanes. Go B’s!
