Connelly’s Top Ten: Bruins Keep Rolling

1. Bruins:

* Are you kidding me NBC with that announcer – guy couldn’t work in a library

* Crowd was dead

* What did Lucic score on the Wonderlic – don’t let him touch the puck in his own end

* Did Pierre really call Seguin a sniper?

* Bruins set a record on icings

* Is Tim Thomas bumming or building a bunker?

* Rask has a nice job handling the puck

* Seguin poked checked – can not beat anyone one on one

* Is that Jagr or Milt Schmidt?

* Thornton 12 shifts

* Hot day in Boston meant puck bouncing and on edge

* Best hands Marchand has shown in a while (even before goal)

* Every shot inside five feet should be lifted or player fined

* Save by Danny Giradi with 22 seconds left in regulation on Seguin shot was insane

* Boychuck hits post at buzzer/ Jagr hit post in OT/ Boychuck post overtime

* Great game by Chara – 38:02

* Great power play in overtime

* Crowd should stand the whole game in playoffs

* Young legs on defense helped

* Bruins 14 shots in overtime to Rangers 5 (how come I kept thinking that they were dominating but Rangers would score off a skate)

2. Red Sox:

* Matt Joyce has to knock that ball down in the gap for Tampa Bay

* Game time 3:43

3. Bruins 1972 run to Stanley Cup:

* Team was 12-3

* Orr and Esposito combined for 48 points in 15 games

* Ken Hodge, Esposito and John Bucyk combined for 27 goals

* Eddie Johnston and Gerry Cheevers split time and each had six wins

4. Stevan Ridley:

Ridley only needs 3,749 yards to be the Patriots all time leading rusher

5. Underrated Celtics Season:

Kevin Gamble, 1990-1991: 15.6 points a game / .587 from the field / 3.3 rebound / 3.1 assists

6. Dwight Evans:

Evans against Joe Niekro, Dwight Gooden, Steve Bedrosian, Roger Clemens, Jerry Koosman, David Wells, Rick Sutcliffe, David McNally and Steve Carlton was 47 for 104 = .452

7. Old School:

Eddie Waitkus of Cambridge and Boston College was the character Roy Hobbs was reportedly based upon. In his rookie year in 1946, he finished 13th in MVP voting hitting .304. He was a two time all star that played in the 1950 World Series for the Phillies

8. Soccer:

Manchester United legends David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson retiring at the same time

9. Alert filler:

1. Natural 2. Bang the Drum Slowly 3. Fields of Dreams 4. Major Leagues 5. Rookie 6. Bull Durham

10. Bruins YouTube:
