Game One to the B's

Many fans quickly walk away from a sport when their team is done.  Yet the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs are very much alive to me, despite the Rangers' misfortune (I'm being kind) against Washington.

The Boston Bruins are on a quest to win their first Cup since Bobby Orr was healthy and skating.  They've waited for a title as long as the New York Knicks have (awkward way of putting it, but true).

Plus they gave Boston a reminder that it stinks to be up three games to none and lose the series, as the B's did against the Flyers last year.

They started their rematch today in Philly - in the Easter Conference semis.  Game one was overall a Boston affair, as the Bruins dominated to the tune of 7-3.  The Bruins' brilliant goaltender (and my choice for the Vezina Trophy), Tim Thomas, wass stellar in goal, making 31 saves.

The playoffs continue tonight and tomorrow - good matchups overall.
