Hello, everyone! It has certainly been a while since I have written anything. But I am back now and excited to write again! Since you have last heard from me, I have attended the Winter Classic, the St. Patrick’s game against Columbus, and I had the privilege of watching the B’s put away the Jackets in game six. All three games were wins, might I add.
As you can tell by my excitement, the Bruins have been pretty remarkable this year. It has been truly magical to watch first hand. Tuukka has had an outstanding year in net which also gives us hope for the final. On top of that, the team in front of him has put in the effort day in and day out to be the best. It is quite refreshing when all 20 guys want it.
But regardless if the boys’ games have been outstanding or not, one thing throughout the year has been consistent. The chemistry our boys share is undeniably special. It is evident on and off the ice. You see it when they’re scoring goals and even when Brad Marchand and Torey Krug are roasting each other on twitter. It is the main reason they have been so successful this year and why they will continue to be in years to come.
“It’s a special group. It’s something else…the way guys pick each other up and help each other keep moving forward together… it’s pretty fun to see.” Marcus Johansson shared to the media over the weekend. Brandon Carlo also said, “Everybody loves one another. That’s a strong word, but overall it’s true. This group is all about just playing for each other.”
John Moore added, “For a lack of a better way to put it, there’s no dickheads.” I completely agree with him on that and have been lobbying for everyone to see that for several years now.
Our veterans have certainly passed on everything they know to the young guys on the team. The captains especially have made a welcoming environment for the rookies and the guys we have traded for.
Since the playoffs have begun, our boys have played complete games mentally and physically. And they have done it together. As a team. As a family.
Tonight, they will continue the fight for the coveted prize. I anticipate that it will be very emotional for ex St. Louis Blues captain and current Bruins alternate captain, David Backes, as we are set to play his former team. I cannot wait to see them play one last series before the regular season starts back up. Hopefully, they will earn the right to hoist up the cup once again.
