Just think, if the Bruins hadn't pulled themselves together against New York and dominated, we'd be doing what Hawks and Wings fans are undoubtedly doing today - pacing, sweating, a little jumpy, lacking sleep. Putting on those pants and that shirt because today's the day. The Sharks' promising season (beating Vancouver has meant winning the cup the last 3 years) was snuffed out on the strength of a Justin Williams power play goal. Heck of a game, though. RIP to a good team with some good beards.
Didja hear that the last 5 Cup Champs are still alive? No? I guess you weren't on twitter after LA won last night. Like, anywhere. I think even spam bots were posting about it. It got messy.
The Eastern Conference Finals schedule also came out last night, if you missed that:
Pens & Bruins are going to play their games at 3am. There will be a six-day break between games 3 & 4. Games 5,6 & 7 will be on the same day— Rick (@Rick_City) May 29, 2013
Happy Birthday, Nathan Horton. What's on tap, y'all?
