Bruins clip the Red Wings
A 4-1 win over the defending Stanley Cup champs.
This was a real test to the Bruins. Had they lost, many would say we are not yet with the elite teams, but we showed otherwise. The thing about Detroit was you could REALLY tell how well they played their system. Few turnovers, lots of possession, explosive offense. Fernandez played well while TT battled an illness.
The thing I loved most was how explosive OUR offense was. We were getting killed in the 1st, and on our first shot, we scored. That is what legit teams do.
Compared to last season, I remember saying, "if we can just bury our chances, we would win so many more games." Well, this season, we are burying our chances.
P.S. Marian who? The guy was a no-show tonight while Kessel lit the lamp...again.
