Boston Ma, The game basically started as Shawn Thornton scuffled with Buffalo goon John Scott. Thornton was man handled by the 6 ft 8in 270lb Scott and consequently would miss the rest of the game. The first intermission hit with the game scoreless.
Second period saw some fiesty play from both sides. Thomas Vanek broke open the flood gates with a goal a minute 38 seconds in.

The Bruins started with energy, and Krejci quickly answered with a goal from the slot. Again Buffalo would surge back as Alexander Sulzer tied it back up. Vanek again w...

It was merely a weekly thing where I could rant and rave about the Bruins and whatever happened throughout those seven days. It was well received and has remained a staple throughout the three years I've been here. If you're new to the segment, it's an unedited, uncensored look...
