I don’t know how many of you watch Tosh.0 on Comedy Central. It’s on OnDemand so you can check it out at your leisure. I bring it up because as the broadcast is wrapping up he always says, “Follow me on Twitter so we can live chat during the show”.
I bring this up because I’ve found the Facebook is one of the most entertaining things to have open during the Bruins game. I figure if I have to watch the game at home by myself on a weeknight at least I can connect to my friends that are basically doing the same.
I’ll start with a video from before Monday’s game. Yup, that’s Adolfo from Toucher and Rich out before game three as a Vancouver “green man”. The “twist” is that he’s looking for gay sex.
For reference he was out there before game four as well. Given the success the teams had, I’d fly him to Vancouver for Friday’s game.
So you had to wonder, like I did, if the Bruins had reached their apex too early with all those goals in game three. Would they come out flat? Would they still have the fire?
No, No, and yes.
They got the scoring started with Peverley smoking Luongo five hole. That would be the only goal in the first period. There were a couple penalties both against the B’s but they managed to hold off the Canucks and Thomas stopped all 12 shots that came to him. You have to sense that Thomas is “in the zone” right now. Even in the two losses in the series, he’s only given up a total of four goals. So yes, very dialed in.
The B’s added onto that lead with Marchand and Ryder scoring in the second. Ryder atoning for his post shot in the first period and Marchand on a beautiful backhand.
At this point it got me to Googling. I googled siv, which is actually spelled sieve. That’s all I could think of Luongo at this point. I reverted back to college where we would chant sieve at the opponent’s goalie.
When I was getting the correct spelling of sieve, Google shows related videos. My Facebook status was quick to share.
“If you Google Sieve, this is seriously the top video on the search…just saying.”
After Peverley added his second goal to put the Bruins up 4-0, Vancouver finally pulled Luongo. So this is yet another series where the Bruins forced their opponent to pull their goalie. Luongo will likely start in game five, I’d be shocked if he didn’t.
Tempers started to flare late in the third and we saw Chara and Kesler with game misconducts. Then Tim Thomas got called for slashing. Which prompted me to post one last video where we confirmed it was a slash.
That video prompter Eli to ask, “When does someone take a sledgehammer to the Bruins bus to make it look mean?”. As soon as the plane lands in Vancouver, I hope they have a beat up bus waiting for them with that same driver.
B’s win 4-0, Thomas hangs on for the shutout, and they head back to Vancouver tied at two.
I wore my jersey in game seven of the last series, didn’t wear it for the first two games of this series, donned it for games three and four. Needless to say I will be wearing it the rest of the series. Here’s hoping they crush it in Vancouver and come back up 3-2.
