We are outta here.
The Bruins win last night earned the players a well-deserved day off and has earned yours truly a chance to get home and see the fam.
It’ll be nice to have a day off.
It’s a beautiful morning here in the city, and the snow that was predicted did not materialize, so that is helpful.
Had a HUGE breakkie at Chez Cora and the Bish (both Dad and I) have toasted Montreal for its stadium, its beauty and its wonderful people over a cup of hot joe.Merci Beaucoup mon amis!
In any case, I will return to Boston this evening and resume my chase of the proverbial scoop at practice tomorrow.
As much as I enjoyed Canada, I am very happy to be going home to the General.
My thoughts, this morning, on the B’s: Good teams win games like last night.
"It was certainly emotional," agreed Coach Lewis post game. "As it turned out, some key guys made some big time plays and we were able to win the hockey game."
"We did, but that’s so long ago it doesn’t matter," said Lewis when asked about his team’s slow start. "The important thing is, I don’t know if we deserved to win, but we won.
"And right now that’s all we needed. We need points and [the win] was against a top opponent in their building.
"It was important for us," he said.
Yes it was, Coach. Yes it was.
So, have a great day, my friends, don’t forget to watch the Buzz on NESN tonight -- my blog is featured.
And thanks for reading, folks. Seriously.
