Depressing Bruins fact

Courtesy of today's Globe:
Every Bruin is on the wrong side of the plus-minus rating, making Boston the only team in the league without at least one player with a plus next to his name.
Ouch! Let's work on that, shall we, gentlemen? Cause that's just sad.

Even sadder is tonight's game after 2 periods, and I thank (read: blame) Lenny Clarke. He was on the intermission show between the first and second periods, when the Bruins were up 1-0 and had been playing well, and he said that Carolina, the Stanley Cup champions, were "going down". Carolina is up 4-1 after 2 periods; Ray Whitney got 3 goals in 1:40, and an assist just at the end of the period. The Bruins looked like a different team there at the end than they had in the first, which is not a good thing.

And not to be too black cat/broken mirror/number 13 or anything, but did Lenny Clarke have to curse them? I mean, creepers!

When the big plus to my night is getting some laundry done and put away, well go me, but come on, Bruins. Give me something to cheer for, would you? Being a less pathetic local sports team than the Celtics is not a lofty goal these days; can we aim higher, please?
