In one of the most exciting hockey games played in these parts in recent memory, the gutsy Bruins staved off elimination at the Garden by erasing three different Montreal leads to rally past the Habs and force a decisive Game 7.


The Bruins of 2007-2008 have ignited a new interest in the NHL in Boston. Right on Boys! This team has overcome the Jacob Brother's CURSE. A Curse which has subjugated the once proud Black and Gold into an also ran hockey franchise. They dwell in a league that has also deteriorated into off the chart status as a SPORT.

This year, we cheered a fresh faced group of prospects who have evolved into budding stars mixed with some gritty veterans.

The Bruins brought us off the chairs with their 7 game series against the Habs of Montreal. A super scorer would have catapulted the Bruins over the Canadians. They also scared the crap out of Montreal Fans. in the words of Jack Edwards, "..the Canadian fans were so tight tonight they were incapable of passing gas."

Saturday, April 19th was the most vibrant night in the history of the "new" Boston Gahden. The B's made sure of Game 7 with a tremendous come from behind victory at home. I was at Fewnay Park on Friday night and you could hear "...here we go Bruins -- here we Go..." all night long. Waiting for the Green Line at Kenmore the thousands of fans in line for their trip in the ditch were clapping and cheering on THEIR Bruins. WOW! That was amazing!!!!

Congratulation to Claude Julian and the Administrative Staff of the Boston Bruins. The players were the heart and soul of the franchise and made things happen. they deserve all the credit. Go Bruins!

Get some scoring talent in the off-season and Lord Stanley may be on the horizon for Boston Bruin Fans!
