Now THAT Was A Hockey Game!


The Bruins win, in double overtime, 2 - 1. It was one of the most exciting hockey games I've ever witnessed. And I was going to say that no matter which side scored the winner. It was a battle that both squads can be proud of having engaged in.

The Penguins pounded 54 shots onto Tuuka Rask, the Bruins goalie, but he only let one into the net. Both goaltenders were great. Tomas Vokoun, for Pittsburgh, had a game that would be talked about glowingly had Rask not been a superhuman in goal and denied Vokoun's teammates so many times.

Last time the Bruins won, I gave you The Bear doing his victory dance. This time, we'll have something a bit different. The Bruins make magnificently funny promotional videos, all of them starring The Bear. Try these on for size. If you don't laugh out loud at some point, I have to believe you need to get your sense of humor in for a tune-up.














Soon, with more bear stuff.

I watched all the vids after commenting and I like "Date" the best. You know what this means, don't ya? We have to stop seeing each other next year. :-)

I watched until they went into the first overtime. I can't stay up that late when I have two-year-old who can be an early riser. So close and yet so far. But that was more like Penguin's hockey from the previous two games. They finally woke up and started playing. Too bad they have a long way to go to even tie up the series. I better start typing up that post.

Great promo videos, IMHO.

I haven't watched those hockey rules videos in a while, thanks for the reminder because they are hilarious! Favorite is either the date or escalator. I just wrote a fairly lengthy recap of the game myself. My eyes were glued to the screen, it was one intense display of playoff hockey to be sure!

Never date within the division. Awesome.

B's are looking damn good. As I type, the Kings and Hawks are tied at 2 going to the third period of game 4. Gotta win this one!

If Daryl's "yay!!!!!!" was appropriate, please add mine to hers.
