I'm Getting Too Old For This Sort Of Thing

The finish to the Rangers/Capitals game tonight was just about enough to put me in the grave. I should've known that the 2-0 lead that the Rangers staked themselves to in the second period wouldn't stand up, as that would've made for too relaxed of a final half minute. Instead, it was 2-1 by then, and the Capitals did everything but tie it. When Ryan Callahan missed the empty net with about 15 seconds to go, I was sure Washington was going to streak down the ice (which they did) and score the equalizer to send the game into overtime (which, fortunately, they did not). Now it's back to the seat of the U.S. government for Game 5.

Meanwhile, not too many hundreds of kilometres away in Montreal, Boneman's Bruins were completing the sweep of the much-hated Habs. Montreal said, "Hey, guess what? This is our 100th season in the NHL!" And Boston replied, "Congratulations! We brought a gift with us, and it's called a broom. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out of the playoffs!" Woo hoo!!

Ah yes...the Hated Habs, who at the beginning of the season were picked to be THE team to come out of the East, were shown the direction of the golf courses tonight...and nothing could be sweeter for a Bruins fan than to kick them to the curb in 4 straight games (it doesn't happen often, if it ever has!)
