Joe Bowen belted out ‘ WE’RE GOIN’ TO BOSTON BABY !!! ‘ … And then nearly sent play by play buddy Jim Ralphs to the hospital with a high five that looked like it dislocated his shoulder !!! …

 

Tonight we’re all in Boston and hopin’ Joe has a reason to get even louder !!!… Oh , Jim  , if it happens … Be ready for this one !!! …

This team can do it ! … Come out flyin’ and don’t let up !!! … Should be a great game regardless of outcome but … THE LEAFS HAVE TO WIN !!! …

As usual … Updating later …

Leafs start off right and  Marleau tips one and they score 2 minutes in !!! … But then get a shitty delay penalty sending the puck over the glass and Boston ties it up …

They go ahead again shortly after … But !!! … The Bruins tie it up again … Then near the end of the first Boston gets the go ahead ! … Bummer …

Morgan Reilly had gone off to the dressing room after takin’ a Chara shot of the face … Hopefully he’ll be back for the second …

I’m callin’ it … No beer … No cigs .. And this game is just too much back and forth and I don’t want to curse the Leafs by watchin’ !! … I’ll read about it tomorrow and update this at that time …

Thursday morning Update ; To be honest , I didn’t like what I saw in the first period … If it was going to be one of those back and forth games I was pretty sure we’d be on the losing end of it ! … So I watched Don and Ron during the first intermission , then turned the TV off and sat down here …

After a few minutes , I checked on Sportsnet and the period had just got underway and it was still 3 – 2 Boston … Back to reading … 6 or 7 mintues later I checked in and the Leafs were up 4 – 3 ! … I thought things were better off now that I wasn’t cursin’ the lads by ‘ watching ‘ the game …

Called it a day and was hoping for some good morning news … For a change ! …

But no such luck !!! … 7 – 4 Bruins and the Leafs are bookin’ tee off times yet again !!!… Let’s just hope this is the last chapter in the ‘ learning experience ‘ manual that they’ve quickly accumulated and take things the further steps required next season …

Switchin’ to Blue Jay Mode !!!…
