We want the Cup!

Orr

Bobby Orr’s iconic shot–better known as “The Goal”–to win the 1970 Stanley Cup for the Bruins [Wikipedia]

Tonight, the Bruins and the Blackhawks will commence the 2013 Stanley Cup Final. Being from Massachusetts, there’s always been a strong hockey culture around, but it’s never more evident than when the Bruins are in the playoffs–especially the Finals. It’s an exciting time and it’s pretty much expected that families around New England will be huddled around their TV’s to watch the excitement unfold.

I think it was a shock to not just Bruins fans but hockey fans everywhere when the B’s swept the Penguins in the Eastern Conference final last week. The big, bad Penguins with Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, and Kris Letang on their side. Well, they definitely proved one thing: defense wins games. By shutting down some of the best scorers in the league, the Bruins effectively eroded Pittsburgh’s confidence. Hopefully it works the same way in Chicago.

In preparation of tonight’s game, I’ll be watching great Bruins moments from games of old and making sure that whenever the analysts on TV say anything that sounds definitive that I knock-on-wood. Because we all know: superstitions win playoffs. Nathan Horton definitely understands that concept–remember when he poured Boston water on Vancouver ice in the 2011 Stanley Cup?

I think that that B’s just have to go out there, set the pace, and show the Blackhawks that they’re not going to back down easily. After all, we areBostonStrong-Wordmark

xoxo, Karoline

    • Haha, thank you! It was bothering me so much that the layout didn’t match so I took a few hours yesterday and played around with things. I like the results! I was surprised at how simple it actually was to get the header perfectly aligned with the background!
