Last night the Bruins took on the St. Louis Blues and, despite a good first period, ended up losing to the Blues 4-2. David Freakin’ Backes got the Bruins on the board first with a goal in the first period that was also the Bruins 20,000th goal.
Then the next period happened.
Dominic Moore scored goal 20,001. Unfortunately the Blues scored three goals and have a 3-2 lead.
SCORE MOORE GOALS BRUINS AND WIN THE GAME!

I’m distressed as the lack of “Fucking Knights” as an option, but the important thing here is a new team means a NEW JERSEY AND IT BETTER BE A GOOD ONE!

Morning all. Yay, it’s Monday. In case you missed it, the Bruins beat the Winnipeg “I Don’t Think You Even Tried” Jets 4-1. Shots were 38-12 so a pretty easy night for Rask. The Bruins actually had a very good Period That Comes After The First Period which saw them score three goals. Up is down and down is up! Beleskey, Marchand, and Bergeron all contributed to the fun.
