B's forced to game 7...Celts look to avoid same fate

The Bruins lost a tightly played game last night 2-1 at the Wachovia Center. The Bruins gave up an early goal to go down 1-0 in the first. The game then went back and forth until the Flyers got a bounce and went up 2-0 mid-way through the second. The Bruins could not find a way to put the puck in the net until 59 minutes into the game when Milan Lucic scored with Rask pulled from the net. It was too little too late though.

The Bruins practiced today in an hour-long skate today where coach Claude Julien switched up the lines. He moved winger Blake Wheeler up to the Beregeron Recchi line in hopes of providing an offensive spark that they have lacked since Sturm and Krejci went down. The Bruins said all the right things in practice as they face becoming the 4th professional team since 1937 to blow a 3-0 series lead. Captain Zdeno Chara lead the way stressing the importance of not panicking. I agree with the Captain here. As many Bruins' fans rip their team apart today on sports radio, I thought the series isn't over. The team didn't blow a 3-0 lead yet. They could come out blazing tomorrow night at the Garden, where they are 5-1 in the playoffs, and be up 3-0 after one. That probably won't happen but I just think people give up on this team quickly due to their past Game 7 failures. Have a little faith Boston.

Then we can knock around those fuckin' frauds up in Montreal and crush their spirit like its our fucking job. Fuck those French Canadian bastards. They win hockey games by flopping for the refs. Stand up and take a hit like a man. They do know how to party though. Ill give them that. 41 arrests is impressive for the Conference Semifinals.

The Celtics look to avoid a Game 7 in Cleveland tonight at the Garden. After Game 5's dismal performance, everyone is counting LeBron out. This scares the shit out of me. Look what he did in Game 3 when everyone doubted him. The guy is gonna show up tonight. You know after all the talk he is gonna put up 30,15, and 10. Just hope the Celtics can control the rest of the team and do enough offensively to win.

Also, Wes Welker spoke today and expressed optimism about his knee injury. He looks to bounce back sooner than expected but would give no time for his return.

Dan Koppen also spoke with the media today from voluntary workout in Foxboro. When asked about Tommy Brady's off-season schedule, Koppen supported his QB and explained how fellow players understand the situation. Brady's two children are on the West Coast along with the rest of his family. I personally don't give a rat's ass where Brady does his off-season work. He has been working with Welker on the West Coast. He isn't sitting in a beach in Hawaii with no contact with the team. He has earned the right to train where he wants. It is not just Brady. Ty Warren has been missing also he tries to earn his degree. You can't fault the guy for that. Each guy has a different situation going on in his life so when fans and the media judge Brady on where he is training, I just shake my head. Let the guy live his life and bang his super-model wife in peace. He will be here July-February which is when it counts most.
