FINAL: Bruins 3 Panthers 0
Sure, the Florida Panthers suck. But I really dont give a shit. That still felt good.
And despite their sucky play as of late (with the exception of the Panther ball kicking), the Bruins are the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference. How friggin amazing is that? Listening to sports talk radio, you'd think this team is a shit show on the cusp of being eliminated from playoff contention.
When all is said and done, Tuukka Rask is going to be a finalist for the Vezina Trophy too. The dude earned his fourth shutout of the season and is currently third in the NHL in save percentage, at .929, and fourth in goals against, at 1.96.
Sure, Milan Lucic hasnt done shit in a while and there are some nights when they just dont show up. But they arent a bad team. Anyone who says they are needs to take the stick out of his ass and look at the numbers. They are the #2 seed in the Eastern Conference for Christ's sake and, with the exception of the Penguins, have friggin owned Eastern Conference teams this year.
Its okay to feel good about this team going into the playoffs.
