We all know Scott Walker did not deserve to take the ice at TD BankNorth Garden. He's not a dirty player, but he lost his cool, and was never punished. He didn't belong in Game 7, and yet the NHL allowed him to be the hero. Mister Walker, do not ever dare come to Norwood, Massachusetts. And the same goes for Mister Bettman, or any other NHL official. Please, for the sake of my clean criminal record, do not come to Norwood.
But that's an easy excuse, isn't it? Quite frankly, I hope Scott Walker contracts sine flu and croaks in the next two days, but this game went beyond the temper-tantrum throwing cunt from Cambridge, Ontario.
Power plays, that was the Bruins' strength in the regular season, and weakness in this series. There's no ifs ands or buts about it. The Bruins looked lost with a man advantage in this series. Due credit to the Hurricanes, for their penalty kill. But due criticism to the Bruins for not making the power play unit productive.
The good news is that this is a young team. There are some restricted free agents, and there's sure to be some off-season drama. Nevertheless, the core of the team should remain intact. I don't really feel like writing much else.
We shall return.
And we shall win.
