Double OT Win Lifts Boston’s Spirits

Can the Bruins close out their current series against Montreal on Tuesday? We'll find out!

By Matt Noonan

What a game. That’s right, I am allowed to be a fan, aren’t I?

What the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens did to every NHL or hockey spectator across the country or around the world for nearly four hours on Saturday was amazing. They pushed and pulled, as well as kept fans at the TD Garden on their feet for nearly 50 minutes.

In fact, who wasn’t standing, especially after Montreal tied the game, 1-1 in the third period?

While Bostonians were incredibly grateful with Brad Marchand’s goal, watching Jeff Halpern score his first point of the series was definitely heartbreaking.

Tim Thomas was absolutely the reason why the Bruins remained competitive and in contention to with Game 5 against Montreal, as he saved 44-of-45 shots between the pipes.

On the other side, Carey Price played outstanding, as the first two periods definitely belonged to the goaltenders, but as the game progressed, he grew weary.

Certainly both goaltenders will sleep soundly late Sunday evening, but again, this particular game will be remembered for the outstanding goaltending along with Nathan Horton’s game winner in double overtime.

So, with the win, Boston has two opportunities to officially end the current series and send their hated rivals home for the summer.

Yet, will they actually do it?

Can the Boston Bruins end their first round series and move on?

Absolutely, but beware my friends because after certain games this past season, the Bruins fell apart and never actually regrouped. Although, after watching Boston win Game 4 in Montreal and then figure out a way to win on Saturday, let’s admit that this is certainly a sign of good things to come.

Keep the dream of a Stanley Cup and Causeway Street parade alive because after a win in double overtime, I’d have to say, anything’s possible.

    If you like tri-nations, super 15, and other rugby games that are not in the world cup would you still be interested?

    Rugby World Cup 2011 contains none of these and only 5 modes. The world cup, single international tests, warm up

    tours, some international tests,, penalty shoot-outs, multi-player games, but only two people can participate. Half the

    teams don’t feature any of the current world class players, but faceless characters no one even knows. So in reality

    you getting half a world cup for full price. Of course, you can name the players through the games editor function, but

    with no faces to the characters, is that any fun?
