Game Notes:

  • I'm drowning in my tears. How is everyone else doing?
  • Should we rehash the Bruins' recent record in game 7's? In the past five years, the Bruins have gone to a game 7 SEVEN TIMES now. While I would not trade this team and its successes/failures for anything -- and obviously making the playoffs and doing things in the postseason is great -- holy shit, this can't be good for our collective hearts. Four of those seven ended in victory, while two of those seven were against the Capitals and THE COLLAPSE in 2010. 
  • The Habs will likely ice the same lineup tonight that they did in game 6. So will the Bruins. 


Rocking back and forth, watching this on repeat all day oh god
