    There's Something "Bruin"

    The Bruins are up 2-1 over the Sabres. I am desperately trying to stave off any delusions of grandeur. But there is something going on with this team. I can't remember the last time I was excited to watch the Bruins game in order to make me feel better about the Red Sox game.

    They are skating well and attacking in a way that makes me think they might be on to something. It feels good being the underdog. Ninety percent of the experts and pundits have written them off and that is good too. It seems to be Boston's modus operendi to have to overcome the odds. The Sabres have Ryan Miller, the higher seed and a great penalty killing percentage. The Bruins have a hot young goalie and nobody on their side. Marc Savard is out with a grade two concussion. Oh, but wait, now the news is breaking that he is skating again and may be back for the end of the Sabres series. If the guys can keep this going and ensure a semifinal trip that would better the chances of his return for sure. Oops, there I go again getting excited about the Bruins.

    I will take my lumps as a Bruins fan and continue to enjoy whatever they may piece together for a post season run. Knowing that everyone and anyone that gets the opportunity to skate in the 2nd season has a chance to do something incredible. This is the team that won the Winter Classic at Fenway in overtime. This is the team that scored 3 shorthanded goals not only in one game but during the same penalty, an NHL record. The Bruins seem to have all the makings of the improbable and I think it would be an awesome way for the greatest sports town in the world to close out this decade. God help me for being a professional hockey optimist in Boston. Enjoy Game 4 , I know I will. Go B's.
