Are the Bruins for real?

Thoughts on the Bruins - Only one loss in six games this month and that was in a shootout. Chara not doing much offensively, nor is Patrice Bergeron. They are getting good goaltending from Tim Thomas. Leafs play them Monday night after long flight back from Vancouver. If we score first we will win - if we don't the Bruins find ways to shut teams down.

Habs - bad week - and they may lose in St. Louis tonight too. Too bad - not.

Ottawa - struggling big time, to make playoffs (as predicted here)

Western Mustangs did advance to Vanier Cup after they beat St. Mary's 28-12 (by more than two touchdowns as predicted here).

Raptors - need a 3 man - Bargnani is not the answer as he is not quick enough to handle most small forwards. We'll see - the Raptors are committed to trying him in starting lineup . Andrea played well today as did Jamerio Moon

Dirty Old Habs

I was lucky enough to go see Leafs totally dominate Habs last night. Habs were a step slow all night and decided to hit Leafs from behind several times - Kostopolous hits Van Ryan right between the numbers - breaks his nose, hand, stitches to head and a concussion - gutless play and he should get a bunch of games suspension. Later Leafs take 3 goaltender interference penalties in a row - interesting last one - Blake gets hammered into the goal post by a beat defenceman. Schenn gets tripped on an icing call and goes hard into the boards. Markov gets a boarding call. Even Koivu took exception to the skill exhibited by Grabovski and actually kicked him along the boards.

Anyway, some might say Habs never gave up - I'd say they need to clean up their act.

Western Mustang football boys going to Mitchell Bowl - second year in a row in National semi finals. St. Marys will be lucky to stay within 2 touchdowns

Bills have lost 3 in a row but have some easier games coming. They'll need to go 11 and 5 to ensure playoff spot.
