    My family lived in the Foxboro/Mansfield area of Mass. for about 5 years after living our whole lives in the Midwest. The whole Patriot's Day thing (along with Blue Laws) managed to hang us up pretty good. "You mean, there's a holday that's just a local thing?" "Whaddya mean the stores are closed?" "Stores don't open till noon on Columbus Day? That's not a real holiday anyway!" After a couple of years we'd adjusted, but still..

    As for the Bruins, I feel for ya Pudge. That was an *awful* game to watch. Montreal's not as good as the Bruins are making them look. They're leaving men open and they're getting surprised, as if they're playing in the game but they're really not watching what's going on and have no sense of flow.

    I'm just kind of sad that Detroit lost their traditional rival (the Leafs) when the East/West realignment happened. Now we're having to make new rivals with the Avalanche or the Blues, since the Blackhawks won't go anywhere in my lifetime.

    My favorite playoff scenario is Detroit in the West and either the Leafs or Bruins in the East, and so I'm right there sharing your pain, man.
    • Well, the Bruins rarely have gone several games in a row like this, this year, except for a long stretch in Nov./Dec. They clearly can snap out of it, and if Patriots Day in Boston against the Habs in a Game 7 can't motivate them to, then they really don't deserve to win, I suppose.
