PUBLIC SKATE: Maple Leafs vs Bruins, 2nd Period

An Original Six Game: a research paper

Like a well-written introduction to a research paper, the first period managed to grab everyone’s attention in a relatively short period of time. But what was lacking? Well, it wasn’t missing a full-bodied introduction, with recently-healed Noel Acciari giving a little season’s greetings to Leafs defenceman Jake Gardiner along with the wonderful sound of Leafs bodies thudding against the glass.

Martin Marincin thudded into the sideboards, but did it back-first and crumpled to the ice. With the help of medical staff, he was aided to the locker room.

It certainly was not the shots on goal, which HEAVILY favoured the Bruins 11-2. In a bizarre incident of deja vu, I found that the shots during my first Bruins-Leafs matchup last year were 11-2 after the first. Plagiarism?

Then, what were they missing in this crucial opening paragraph that would have given them a 25/25 grade on their game rubric?

THEY MISSED.

THE FREAKING.

BACK OF THE NET.

PASTA DID IT FOUR TIMES.

I’m hoping for a strong and thoroughly convincing series of body paragraphs and a powerful conclusion to give this paper a grade above a D.
