5 Years Ago Today: 182 Penalty Minutes, A Goalie Fight and 14 ...
I'm not going to lie to you guys, this has been a long week for me. Midterms have kicked my ass, and I am sitting back in the library trying to decompress after a tough couple of weeks.
I am scrolling through my timeline, and this beautiful video pops up. This week is the 5-year anniversary of one of the greatest hockey games you will ever see. 182 penalty minutes, 11 goals, a goalie fight, what more could a guy ask for?
I miss this brand of hockey. I get that the league is worried about concussions and player safety, but there was nothing better than watching the Big Bad Bruins take the ice and man-handle every team they lined up against.
I wasn't lucky enough to watch the Bruins from the '80s, but I think this team would have made them proud.
Did they always win? Nope. But were they one of the most respected and feared franchises in professional hockey? You better believe it.
Here is to all the badasses that have tossed on the spoked-B.
