So thus begins the Second Round. And I continue the book of my life: "I'm Only Blury When I Zoom" (Oren!)

This should be a good contest--Canes may lull us in this one, but I have total faith. It's a healthy Bruins team (Ference is a go?)

Strong fundamental hockey....and a little magic by Julien and the boys....


GO BRUINS!




Oh, and I made this for another board (first in my heart), but I thought it was cool...

Currently in bed debating whether to get out of bed and go to my 2 classes today, or go back to sleep and rest up for the game tonight. Difficult decision.

Anyways, its been a loooong break and I can't wait for 730 tonight. I'll be in attendance hoping that the TD will be jumping. Lets go Bruins.

Gotta come out strong tonight. Long layoffs have a tendency to lead to slow starts. Being at home will certainly help, but Carolina should be sky high.

Morning All!

first time i've been up this early in a while, damn coughing fits keeping me up, i hate allergies

your dedication posting these GDT's early every time is unreal!

TD needs to be loud and quick to match what carolina fans bring in their building. im thinkin the first ten minutes will be quite intense

puck drop cant come soon enough!

GO B'S!

Bruins have to survive the 1st period tonight and be within 1 goal. I fear the rust factor in the first 20 minutes.

This series is going to be a lot closer than many think, I think.

GO BRUINS!!!!

Yeah, finally Bruins hockey is back
I predict a difficult first period but we'll be rolling in the second and third and hopefully come out with a solid win.

Go Bruins

This is the first 7:30 pm start at home all season, which I'm fine with since it allows me a lot of time to get there from work. And it's all because the league staggered it by a half hour so that it can be "joined in progress"....

Anyway, I've been looking forward to this game for only about a decade now.

vancouver dealt with their rust factor fine... im pretty sure its overrated {not ever having played the game at this level he says}

if the team doesnt show up... will be some reason or other to blame on it... but mostly would be a poor show of character and honestly, i dont think this team suffers from lack of character

im sure we will play our game... and imho, our game will be good enough to win this series fairly easily. i cant be so bold as to predict a sweep, but id be a bit surprised to go more then 5

go Bruins go

I'm almost hoping for a busy day at work, as that will make the next 12 hours pass faster.

Lotsa traffic in front of Cam, boys!

man it seems like forever since we got to watch a B's game.

Crush the Hab....I mean Cans tonight. Break them in the first game so they know they are not in the same weight class as the B's.
