Ahhh drat...

Well hockey is now over for me for the season. Last night the Providence Bruins lost game six to the Manchester Monarchs 2-1.

The first period was great. A lot of emotion, very quick and tough played game. The first period ended 1-1. We were looking okay. Manchester went ahead in the second and that was all it took. The Bruins got a power play with a smidge over 2 minutes left. 1:45 left they pulled the goalie..it was 6 on 4 and some great wheeling around in the offensive zone. Alas, the game ended 2-1 with the PBs being on the downside.

I stood around to watch the players shake hands and noticed that after the Bruins shook hands they came back around and stood as a group on their blue line. Manchester left the ice and then it happened...

The players all raised their sticks and waved to the people left in the seats. The ovation was thunderous. A 100% class act move. I have never ever seen that done (barring a said fan appreciation night). A few players gently laid sticks over the glass to younger fans.

Class actions from a classy organization. Sure the hot dogs are cold and the sodas overpriced but all that is secondary to the product on the ice in my mind. My payment has been recieve and I await the scheudle for the upcoming season.

Rest up guys, enjoy the summer and see you in the fall.

Classier than the Boston Bruins I guess. The main difference is that they are happy to be there.

I just want to see the big Bs get into the playoffs so I can sport a playoff beard.
