Max Pacioretty and the Definition of a Turtle

Okay, so I know the title of this post doesn’t literally fit the situation but the vibe Bill Hicks gave us when discussing his hatred of Los Angeles and it’s inhabitants is so very similar to the way Bruins fans feel about the Montreal Canadiens that it’s pretty appropriate here. Sort of sums up the way we felt after the game was finished last night. That, after long last, the whiny, cocky, turtling little bitches finally got what was coming to them. An 8-6 beating on the scoreboard and in the pugilistic arena sending them all back above the border bruised and battered, tail between legs.

Standing ovation all around.

I know I’m gloating like a total homer in this one but I think it’s justified. This was a trip back to 1978 and the wild, wild west days of hockey. Brawling, wide open hockey. Real hatred. Real punishment.

Through it all, it seems the Bruins are finally finding an identity and a team unity that they can use to fuel what will hopefilly be a barn burner of a finish to the season and an equally blazing playoff run. If this doesn’t spark them nothing will.

When you see an entire team playing with that level of emotion and team unity, it’s a joy to the heart of an old school hockey fan. More than that, it bodes well for the future. It says they’re All In it. It says they’re on the same page. They need to hold this one, and the Dallas game last week, in their memories for the entire rest of the season and into the playoffs.

Because that’s the way it has to be done. That’s the way the Bruins will win. Not by taking insane penalties, mind you, unless warranted. But by playing with emotion and physicality.

Wolf Pack Mentality.

I love it.
