ECSF Game 6. Boston Bruins at Montreal Canadiens. Eliminationtown: Population Montreal?



Seriously the NHL is a gong show. Montreal is a gong show. Shawn Thornton is a gong show. The Rangers/Penguins are gong shows. Everyone is getting so much spray in the face you’d think the NHL playoffs were sponsored by Brazzers. I must say it was a dumb thing for Thornton to do. As funny as it may have been, you can’t do that in the middle of play – that was my only issue with it. If PK was bitching to someone on the bench in a stoppage and Thornton squirted him then go for it man.

It’s the NHL playoffs.

First it was dick taps.
Now it’s water to the face.
The Conference Finals is going to be one giant fucking Wet Willy contest.

Grown ass men acting like children. Whatever, it brings the lawls for me.

Do you want to know why the Bruins are going to beat the Canadiens?

The Bruins are using a virtual first line center in Carl Söderberg to man a third line that faces the likes of Douglas Murray. That Fraser-Söderberg-Eriksson line really found their stride on Saturday night and it was because Carl Söderberg is making it happen. I can’t say enough good things about the guy to be honest with you. Last year when he finally decided to leave Sweden, I said once he finds the North American game he’ll be a superstar and I think we’re seeing that now.

This team is built so soundly at center that they can deploy a guy who is probably a second line center on good teams and a first line center on bad teams against inferior defensive groups. It is a matchup nightmare for Therrien. Think about it – if he wants to try and quiet down the Söderberg line and throw out Subban’s pairing it leaves either the Murray pair against Bergeron or Krejci’s line or it leaves Subban exhausted. It’s win/win.

Even if Therrien decides to sit Murray, the Bruins can still expose a weak third pairing. It’s win freaking win.



Outside of matchups, Boston just has to stay out of the mess tonight. I have the feeling we’re in for a gong show tonight. A train wreck of unbelievable proportions. Except the diving, expect the “falling with grace” pageantry and expect Milan Lucic to flex on the bench like a meathead.

Seriously, I can’t stop laughing.

What a meathead, but he’s our meathead so I’m okay with it.

But like I said, the Bruins need to stay away from the crap tonight. They need to play a disciplined game if they want to win in Montreal. Expect another 1-0 grindfest like it was in Game 4.
