I didn’t see the comeback. The last one, I mean. When it went 5-3, I let my wife turn the game off. In my defense, my daughter was up sick with a horrible stuffy/snotty head so snuggling her was a bigger priority. So imagine my surprise when Jen switched the game back on for a minute and we saw it was tied! One of the goals was a smidge controversial, but whatever – they completed the comeback with a dynamite snipe from Derek Roy in OT.
After the trade deadline, I was sparring on Twitter with Jimmy Murphy, ESPNBoston.com’s Bruins wonk. He was perplexed as to why Buffalo would trade away our ‘answer to Lucic’. Seeing as how no one currently on the team had ever really ‘answered’ Lucic, I was perplexed. He said that came from a ‘Bruins source’. Ha. I replied that Marcus Foligno already played a ‘bigger’ game than Kassian had done in his time as a Sabre, so trading BZK was a non-issue. Murphy went on to show his ignorance when he assumed I meant Nick Foligno. I hope that after the past month, he’s figured out there’s another Foligno brother he might have to account for. 6G 7A +8, only 3 games in that stretch without a point. And then there’s this:
A “Hornet’s Nest”, indeed.
