Wow, this could be more demoralizing than any loss to the Leafs you could muster. You had to lose to Boston sometime, but a night after THEY played in Chicago?! It's become a Jekyll-and-Hyde team who all of a sudden regained their home composure just at the same time their road game becomes crap. Now everyone will be all kissing Boston's ass and calling us pretenders after a game like this (still not over, but you can just fear the headlines).
Boy, is that ever gonna piss me off. 14 games in and we're already ****tier than Boston, some will accuse. All hail the Bruins, right? (come on, we know folks at Hfboards are rooting for Boston). But it's an 82 game year. Hey, the fact that the NE Div. is the best in hockey right now might make it an even great accomplishment if we win it in 08-09. But right now, it looks like the 06-07 Habs out there. But what Boston shows us is how git, determination and character can beat out talent once in a while. I still don't see this team's grittiness being where it needs to be in order to compete for a cup. Even Detroit needed some guts n' glory to win it all while the Pens relied too much on their skills.
