That game last night was for the highly caffeinated and easily amused. It was not an interesting game. Well, not until the end.

First Period:

Absolutely nothing happened. The B’s had a low shot total. The arena was at best quarter-filled supposedly because people were preferring to watch the game on one of the screens in the restaurants within the arena, as the broadcast crew would have you believe. Right, that’s it. It had nothing to do with the snowstorm.

Actually, watch the best part of the broadcast, instead. We tried to watch it but our girl Vegas decided to bark angrily at the dog barking at her in the window (it was her).

Second Period:

At 9:02, Patrice Bergeron was called for Tripping. The replay showed that he had been tripped up by Frans Nielsen by Bergy made the mistake of reaching out his stick to trip him in retaliation. It didn’t take long for the Wings to score, 13 seconds in fact. Detroit takes the lead 1-0.

The ice had been shitty all night with repairs being made at the beginning of the first, midway and three-quarters through the second. Fix your ice problems, Pizza Box.

Third Period:

Why Sean Kuraly had to be from elsewhere, I’ll never know. He’s the only holdup in naming that Bruins fourth line the New England line, with Tim Schaller hailing from New Hampshire and Noel Acciari being the Pride of Rhode Island™. Anyway, that fourth line scrapped in front of the Wings net and Noel Acciari lifted the puck over Jimmy Howard’s pads to tie up the game.

David Pastrnak gets hauled down ugly by Mike Green. On the power play, there were plenty of triangles and passes and a couple of shots until Dylan Larkin managed to get an errant puck, speeding down the ice for a short-handed goal. Detroit, 2-1.

Cassidy pulled Tuukka with over 2 minutes to go. David Pastrnak sniped the tying goal.

Overtime:

It didn’t take long. Brad Marchand went from end to end with the puck, shooting up under the crossbar and over the line while wearing Mike Green. This took a whole 35 seconds.

I love Brad, you love Brad, we all love Brad.
