Last night the Bruins did not play their best game. I have no idea what it looked like on TV but both teams had issues with passing, the Bruins more than the Habs at times.
The Bruins did not win. Oh sure, they came close to winning due to David Krejci’s late third period power play goal, but they fell short 15 seconds into the extra period.
I went to the game and had an excellent seat among a bunch of season ticket holders in Section 305. My seat was the extra ticket of Paul from Littleton, who upon meeting me was glad to see I was wearing the correct laundry. “Oh good, I was worried you were from Montreal,” he said as he sat down beside me in the second row. We introduced ourselves and Paul gave me the lay of the land. “I’ve had these seats for 15 years,” he said as he gestured toward the ice to point out why,”These have the best view. You can see the goal clearly at this angle, so the puck is easily seen when it goes in. And the Bruins attack twice.” He turned around. “These two rows are full of season ticket holders and we all know each other. The row behind us is the NHL row. You never know who will be sitting there. Sometimes it’s families of the camera crew.”
On my other side was a super opinionated younger man who rarely shut up. Sure, he knew some stuff but he his constant yammering kind of ruined it for me but these are the things you have to put up with when you’re at a game.
Anyway, the next game should be better because it involves Gritty and a crappy Philadelphia squad that’s been going through things, like all the goalies in the world.
