Throughout the Bruins-Lightning Eastern Conference Final, TheBruinsBlog.net will collaborate on Q&A features before every game with Jon Jordan 0f Beasts of the Southeast over at Kukla’s Korner.
Here’s the latest installment, where I respond to questions about the Bruins’ Game 3 victory and more.
JJ: In an effort to provide a little levity for my Lightning fan friends out there, well kick things off in lighthearted fashion here today, so as not to overwhelm the masses.
Apparently, the off-ice officials are not as impressed with Tyler Seguin as the rest of the free world. Clearly, he scored Boston’s second goal last night with his mind and yet, here we are, looking at the final score sheet, where they’ve changed it to correctly reflect Andrew Ference as the goal-scorer.
Haters? Or might Seguin have his very own Lex Luthor residing right here in Tampa (or, perhaps, up there in the Toronto war room)?
MK: Everything is Seguin. He’s so fast that the back wind from him skating toward the net blew the puck in through Dwayne Roloson’s 5-hole. Or maybe it was the shock that overcame Roloson at the sight of Seguin going to the net that made the puck trickle in. Regardless, there’s obviously an anti-Seguin population out there that controls the war room and the final stats sheet. There are plenty of people in Boston today that probably think Seguin not only scored that goal but the one credited to David Krejci as well.
Regardless, isn’t it amazing the Bruins were able to win without getting a single point from their teenaged superstar? Wow, that Patrice Bergeron guy looked pretty good. Maybe the team should sign him to a long-term deal oh yeah, they did already. Zdeno Chara and Tim Thomas, though, are obviously too old and untested to lead a suffocating defense. Oh wait, that was them out there, huh? I guess there’s more to this team than Seguin. But if all the talk about the rookie did anything to distract the Lightning from their task of stopping everyone else, shame on them.
