Boston Bruins Slump

Tell me something I don’t know, you say?

This is getting bad, folks. Something drastic has to be done. I wish I could tell you what exactly that is but, then again, I’m not being paid a seven figure salary to run a professional hockey franchise in the NHL.

This Sunday morning, the 24th of January 2010, the Bruins find themselves, for the first meaningful time this season, outside the Eastern Conference Playoff picture looking in. Currently they sit tied for 9th place with the New York Islanders, looking upward at hated rivals the Montreal Canadiens and New York Rangers, Philadelphia Flyers and Ottawa Senators (who delivered the latest beating to the team, yesterday afternoon at the Garden).

The thing is, they’re only two points out of the 13th spot in the Conference, too. This is a problem. This puts the team’s recent slide into the realm of the epic, the disastrous, the monumentally frustrating.

If you wear Black and Gold today, my friends, then today is officially Gut Check Time. Today at 5 p.m. visiting the last place Carolina Hurricanes, that very same team that drove you to a humiliating early exit from last year’s playoff on Scott Walker’s Game Seven overtime winner, is the team you need to show up against today loaded for bear. You need a bucketload of vicious, snarling hatred and rage today, boys.

Show up or pack it the fuck in.

You decide.
