After a dominating win in Lake Tahoe vs the Flyers, the Bruins traveled back to the East Coast to face the two New York teams. This produced mixed results.

Thursday, Feb 25

The Islanders, who have had the Bruins number all year, gave the Bruins a beating Thursday night, 7-2. This game should not have been as lopsided as the score indicated, though. The two teams were tied at 2 entering the 3rd period. That’s where the train went off the tracks for the Black and Gold, however. The Bruins were outshot 18-8 in the third to put the icing on the cake. This led to 5 unanswered goals in the 3rd period for the Islanders to complete the beat down. I was willing and hoping the players and coaches were tired as well, to chalk this one bad game to travel and hangover from the west coast trip. Although, it is concerning the Islanders are 3-0 vs the Bruins this year.

The Bruins were back at it the following evening for a Friday night tilt vs the Rangers at MSG. They came out flat vs the Blue Shirts, though. The Bruins defense has been hit hard with injuries recently. Matt Grezlyck, Kevan Miller, and Jeremy Lauzon are all on the IR. They let the Rangers get whatever they wanted whenever they wanted on offense and it showed as the Bruins got throttled 6-2. A couple goals from two local products, Chris Kreider and Colin Blackwell, makes the thrashing hurt even more.

Sunday, 2/28

The B’s got back to their winning ways today in a matinee against the Rangers 4-1. It was great to see them come back and make a statement after dropping two ugly games. Charlie Coyle got the scoring started early in the first with a beautiful goal undressing a Rangers defenseman. The Bruins didn’t let up as they scored in every period to make sure the game was in hand for when the Rangers staged their comeback. Rangers lone goal came in form of ex-St John’s Prep and Harvard star, Colin Blackwell, for his 5th of the year.

The front office acquired some reinforcement for the D in the middle of this busy week of games. They claimed Jarred Tinordi off waivers from the Nashville Predators. The former first round pick hasn’t been able to quite live up to the first round pedigree as he’s not quite an NHL regular. The lefty brings size to the blue line in his 6’6 frame, however.

I’m thinking we chalk up those two blowout losses to hangover from Lake Tahoe and move forward. Games don’t slow down for the B’s, though, as they have 3 games again next week. 2 vs former Captain and current Washington Capital Zdeno Chara and 1 vs those pesky Devils.

  • I have noticed that over the course of making a relationship with real estate proprietors, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in each and every real estate financial transaction, a payment is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers will not “save” the fee. Rather, they fight to win the commission simply by doing a agent’s work. In this, they devote their money as well as time to carry out, as best they are able to, the duties of an realtor. Those responsibilities include revealing the home through marketing, offering the home to willing buyers, creating a sense of buyer urgency in order to induce an offer, scheduling home inspections, controlling qualification check ups with the financial institution, supervising repairs, and aiding the closing of the deal.
