This one hurts. So much in fact I am having a hard time coming up with an opinion that makes sense. So here is some random facts and opinions I just couldn’t connect together to make an article.
Last year ended somewhat the same way with a loss in a game 7 but that was different. We made the playoffs in the 8th seed and took a team we didn’t beat all year to a game 7 (The hated Canadians) Highlighted by game 6 we did what NO one thought we could do.
Flash Forward a year later and we were the number one seed in the East. Only a few points out of having the best record in the entire NHL. We were supposed to do something more then make the semi finals. Losing at home to the Hartford freaking Whalers but at last it wasn’t meant to be.
The Bruins built a team. They didn’t go out and use their friend to make a stupid trade and buy a Championship. They did it the old fashioned way. They built it.
The team is full of hard working guys like Tim Thomas. Likable players such as cancer survivor Phil Kessell and hard worker Milan Lucic. They deserve so much more then to lose this way. In a game 7 at home to the HARTFORD WHALERS!
