The Boston Bruins have defeated the Montreal Canadiens in OT and have won the best-of-seven series 4 games to 3.
As always, a hard-fought rivalry and great hockey.
I was nervous when Montreal tied it up 3-3 in the final minutes of regulation sending the game into overtime.
The OT goal was on a monster deflection and the puck just snuck past the left pad of the Canadiens' goalie. Tough break there for sure.
Now let's see if Boston can do anything in the next round!
Not to bash soccer, but hockey is much more exciting than soccer any day of the week. What is funny is that whenever a hockey player takes a dive to try and draw a penalty, they always say the guy "flopped on the ground like a soccer player" or words to that effect. That's code for he really didn't hit me, but I'm going to make it look like he tried to amputate my right leg.
What I'd like to see is the next time someone takes a phoney dive in soccer is the guy who supposedly fouled the dude just walk up to him and beat the snot out of him then turn to the referee and say, "...Now I hit him!"
That would be worth the price of admission!
