Let me tell you, it is not easy being at another NHL game knowing your team is stomping on another team's hopes and dreams back home. With that 9-0 win, the Bruins currently sit atop the league with a goal differential of +69. Hee hee hee.
Possibly the most hilarious part about last night was that the out-of-town scoreboard at the Scottrade Center couldn't keep up with the Bruins' frenetic scoring pace. While Twitter was blowing up with news of goals six and seven, the board still read 3-0. My seatmate's shock a few minutes later when it jumped to 7-0 was totally worth the price of admission.
And wasn't that Lucic goal off Jokinen ridiculous?
Anyways, after the jump, we've got presidential hockey fans, a whiny Joel Quenneville, and Vancouver overhyping tomorrow's game. Have at thee.
