Honestly this was their worst game since the 4-0 masterpiece they had against Montreal last year. But that game was overdue they won 7 in a row before and Montreal owns us in Montreal. We own the Bruins. We had all this hype and came in as cup favorites. We looked like a bottom feeder. This was a humbling defeat to me. Hopefully for the team too. The team read their press clippings too much and decides working hard was optional.
You do realize that the Bruins are as much of Cup favorites as we are right? Nothing humiliating about this game. There are teams that are bound to start this way. Detroit is getting blown out. The most improved team in the East (Carolina) got blown out. The defending Cup champs got blown out. It's just one game.
