Alright, so I posted a Marc Savard card just before game 1 of the Bruins/Flyers series and he scored the game winner in overtime. Maybe I can keep my luck going here. Today I'll go with Patrice Bergeron, who had a pretty decent game himself in game 1.
Casey from Drop the Gloves! commented on my game 1 post that it's not entirely inconceivable that the Bruins could make the Stanley Cup finals this year, and I couldn't agree more. If you don't count the last 7 minutes of regulation (will someone please explain to me what Hunwick and Wideman were doing on that Briere breakaway goal?), the Bruins actually handled Philadelphia rather well. They were 2-1-1 against Philadelphia in 4 regular season games. If they can pull out a win at home tonight and go up 2-0 you'd have to feel very good about their chances in this series.
In the other Eastern conference semi-final, I once again find myself in the uncomfortable position of actually rooting for the Montreal Canadiens. I think either the Habs or the Penguins would be a tough matchup for the B's, but I still like their chances a little more against a team that does not have Crosby or Malkin on it!
I'm sure the Flyers are going to come out guns blazing tonight, and with a little more physicality in the Boston lineup (Shawn Thornton replacing Marco Sturm) it should be a great game! Let's go Bruins!
