Bruins Can’t Close, Game 7 Tomorrow Night

The Bruins could not close out the Tampa Bay Lightning on the road last night, and thus will need a win tomorrow night at the Garden in game seven in order to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

    I loved all those hosts and callers to the sports radio stations celebrating the Bruins getting to the Cup Finals after they were up in the series 3-2. LOL!

    I just watched CSNNE Sports Tonight and they just had a segment called "Take Your Pick". A topic is brought up and the hosts takes a choice. One of the topics was which home plate decision was the worst. The topic came about due to the gruesome injury Buster Posey suffered last night vs. Florida. The choices were Posey, Pete Rose on Ray Fosse and Lou Pinella on Carlton Fisk. Gary Tanguay said Fisk because he remembered how bad the injury was and Fisk was never the same. Ummmmmm Gary, the Pinella collision did not injure Fisk, but it did start one of the biggest brawls in MLB history. Fisk was injured in 1974 when Cleveland's Leron Lee ran him over blowing out his knee. Greg Dickerson sat there clueless as well. Nice show prep guys.
