Many of you probably know (and despise?) me as I've frequented this blog during the past series. Well I had an informal bet with one of your commenters regarding who would win the best of seven series between our two teams. I'm here to pay up on my end of it.
As you all know; the Boston Bruins defeated the Buffalo Sabres and will advance into the second round of the playoffs. I didn't think it was likely but I'm here to say I was very wrong. Feel free to use this space to rub that fact in my face.
I won't make any excuses (though I think I could make some really fantastic ones) because that's the sign of a sore loser. All I'm going to say is that your team played very well. Tuukka Rask was outstanding. Your special teams were dominant. The Bruins are getting hot at exactly the right time.
I wish you guys the best of luck in the next round. Congratulations.
