Bruins-Patricks-Day

68. Minnesota Wild at Boston Bruins. And on this day, Saint Patrice drove the Wild from the Garden

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! Whatever this holiday means to you, enjoy it. Let’s get down to the brass tax here:

People wearing green hockey jerseys.

God I hate them. I will always hate them. I especially hate it when teams try to “Irish up” players names thinking it’s fun and cute. It’s not fun. It’s not cute. It’s fucking stupid. You know what’s hilarious? Seeing some piss drunk retard wearing an O’Chara shirt. Yeah – that’s really fucking fun. That’s real fucking cute. O’Chara. O’Rask. O’Iginla. O’Give me a break.

O’Seggy? Get fucked Dallas. Seriously, get abducted by an alien and probed with a 2×4 of barbed wire fucked. You dirty assholes. You dirty, porn star assholes.

Oh yeah, there’s a hockey game tonight. The Bruins have feasted on terrible hockey teams lately, not to take anything away from their 8 game winning streak. Sure, there has been a good team spattered in there (Phoenix, Tampa, Montreal) but for the most part they have been scrubs. Again, that’s not to say that the run they’ve been on has been shitty because that’s not the case.

Tonight should be a good test for the Bruins. Minnesota has the first wild card in the Western Conference and while they could be out of the hunt for a Central Division they’ll fight tooth and nail to stay in the playoffs. Minnesota ranks 24th overall in Fenwick For percent – basically one of the worst puck possession teams in the NHL. Boston should be able to control the puck, but we’re also talking about a Wild team that is fifth in the NHL in shots against at 1874.
