NHL Update (Playoffs, Round 2):
- Let’s set the scene for tonight’s OT finish in Denver. For the Avs, things were starting to look very scary. The Sharks simply would not go away, and were, frankly, looking like the team with more grip in their skate. Desperately trying to hold a 3-2 lead in the third, Vlasic puts the home team in a big pickle when he bounces a shot off a defender’s skate and into the net. Then in a wild 20 second sequence, the Landeskog fog moved in, created confusion in the San Jose end, and the next thing you know it’s game over … 4 to 3 for the home team and make preparations for a Game 7. Gabriel nailed his teal opponent into the boards, get the puck out to Makar, and then get’s back into the fray around the mouth of the goal, before using lightning quick reflexes to steer one past a hopelessly over-matched Martin Jones. Make no bones about it, this has been the best series in the playoffs … by far. #Sharks #Avalanche
- Beautiful way to close out the Conf Semis for the B’s, who show there’s much more to their attack than just the top line.
And as for the defense, with Mt. Chara, boy wonder McAvoy, and Rask as the man behind the mask, they’re doing just fine.
In a few weeks, could it be duck boat parade time? #Bruins #Jackets
