Still not buyin’ it

Posted by bdowd625 on November 20, 2009

Pardon me for not being too excited about the Bruins’ 4-3 shootout victory at Atlanta last night. The B’s blew an early two-goal lead and allowed the Thrashers to send the game into overtime by giving up a goal with 41 seconds left in the third period. This team is just not closing out games right now. One positive, though, is that they finally won in a shootout. Penalty shots were becoming this team’s personal house of horrors until last night.

I’m still not too high them, however. Getting Milan Lucic back last night should provide a big boost and Marc Savard’s return (whenever that may be) will likely do the same. But if those two guys can’t help turn this thing around, I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see the Bruins make a big trade to shake things up a bit.

In the meantime, maybe they should listen to this kid’s speech from the movie Miracle. It might light a fire under their asses. It sure gets me pumped up every time I watch it.
