Bruins @ Blackhawks Game Thread the First

It’s snow joke the Bruins need to bring their A-game for these last few games of the season

Good morning all!

How are you feeling? Chugging the Maalox yet?

Never fear, we don’t need to panic just yet.

I’m hoping the Bruins will play a better defensive game than they did Friday. Hearing Chelsea Dagger play five times today would be five times too many.

You know, just once, I would love to see someone figure out a way to secretly switch the Hawks goal song.

I have some ideas:

These were the lines the Bruins were practicing with yesterday:

I don’t have the Blackhawks lines available just yet, but we know the Hawks will be skating two out of their three dumb jerks. Keith is starting the first of his six game suspension.

Scott Darling will get the start in net for the Hawks. Tuukka Baby will most likely be in net for the Bruins.

What’s on tap, people?!

Ugh I need to redirect my hate for NBC. That infographic is 3 days old. Totally useless with how over the playoff picture changes in the east.

Time to focus on something else during this intermission.

Maybe take the metaphorical sexual organ that metaphorically belongs to Towes out of your literal mouth there Milbury and just report on the game. Not talk about how Towes does nothing wrong & Chara uses his “big bear hand” to swat away at the “toughest captain in the game”

He did say that Toews was giving no quarter, implying he is not innocent here?

That phrasing implies that Toews is the good guy here

Not allowed to criticize the Hawks on national broadcasts, so of course the spear goes unacknowledged

NBC’s continual ballwashing of the Hawks is so nauseating. I particularly hate how they choose to highlight Kane on their Stanley Cup montage. (I know, he’s their most exciting player, but he is also a douchenozzle by any measure)

I can tolerate a lot of stupidity from this league, but maybe just maybe they should take the dick of the team thats been a colossal PR disaster this season out of their mouth for a spell

and drops a BOMB at the end of it.

(4 of) I am thankful for NESN's @BrianZechello, who never is afraid to tell the story of the game instead of producing from a list.

Nice. I genuinely didn’t know there was a power play there. (I guess I looked away at the wrong time) I kept counting the players, trying to figure out where the 5th guy was.

NBC is fucking horrible at highlighting penalties in their hockey coverage. When there’s a penalty, I always want to see it on replay, and they rarely give a damn. We have to listen to where Pierre’s favorite of the day played whe he was 14 yrs old, what happened with some trade from 2 or three years ago, how the Hawks have won 3 cups recently, etc. Hell, they were blathering on about the Penguins & Islanders at one point. You know which teams this game has no bearing on? Yeah, the ones in Metro who’ve clinched.

You know, had the refs not given Z a penalty there for getting smacked in the nuts, that goal doesn’t happen
