Optimism was beginning to creep in for the Bruins ... except for the last few weeks where they have perfected the art of the choke. Even in the barley make the playoffs years of Harry Sinden have I ever seen this. winning 2-0 to start the 3rd and then lose 5-2 ... that's horrendous. Back in my hockey days ... I'm 47 the most important thing was back checking ... these Bruins don't know what that word means.
