It's playoff time around these parts, and that deserves most of our attention.  The Sox are sucking so obviously people will also be griping about that.  We can't forget about our roommates at the Garden, the Bruins.  The playoffs start tomorrow and it is very exciting.


The Garden would be a magical place if both teams go far into the playoffs.  They can feed off of each other and the city from night to night.  Here's hoping the B's go far, and that they crush those [dang] Canadiens in the first round.
"Take this down," said O'Neal. "My name is Shaquille O'Neal and Paul Pierce is the (expletive) truth. Quote me on that and don't take nothing out. I knew he could play, but I didn't know he could play like this. Paul Pierce is the truth."

I love playoff hockey.  I hope they play the Flyers in the next round, so that I can get to a game.  Past playoff failures have conditioned me to have low expectations, but I love this group of players.  Go, Bruins!

Another playoff series against the Habs?  That's the one team I never want to see in the playoffs.  I don't care how good the Bruins are playing, I always feel like they're the underdogs in this rivalry - I'll be happy if they can make it out of the first round.  Honestly, I gave up on the Bruins a while ago - just no continuity with the players, no one like Bourque or Neely that can sustain themselves as the face of the franchise for a decade or longer - but that's more of a testament to the new NHL than the team, I suppose.

I support the Penguins, a franchise that, through extreme luck in draft lotteries, has thrived as a blue collar sport in a blue collar town.  If Fleury can stay hot (or at least just not revert to his early-season form) then they've got a legit chance to make it back to the Finals.

DKC Bucks. Also terrible.

Great game last night.  Lot of emotion out there.  Bruins looked flat in the 2nd period and the first part of the third but they really turned it up a notch in the last 10 minutes or so.  Montreal really strugged to get it into Boston's zone and that power play goal by Chara was a laser.  It's great to have playoff hockey here.

Not all of them, unfortunately.  It's disgusting the lack of NHL coverage there is.

Watching ESPN, you'd think the NHL doesn't exist anymore.

The NHL pulls down XFL style ratings when nationally broadcast.  I don't blame the major networks for turning them down when they can show a poker tournament which would secure the same ad revenue for 1/10th of the cost.  While it sucks for the fans, I think it's good for hockey in general - bump the sport down the national rankings, force the teams to reconnect with their blue collar fans, and rebuild the connections they lost through the lockout.

I like how this is going to work out.  Here's hoping there's 15 more.  Solid game last night.  I was a little worried when they came out flat in the beginning of the third but overall they were clearly the better team on the ice.

Very sweet go ahead goal.  They could have hung they're heads a bit after the crossbar shot and circus save on the deflection, but they kept attacking.  They smelled blood on the power play. 

Very obligatory fighting by Montreal at the end.  You could see their heart wasn't really in the fighting, but they felt like it was the thing to do.
