They call it playoffs...

Watch out boring sports post..oh first..little march had her first soccer game "loss". They lost 1-0. Little March was sort of "glum" about it but seemed to get over it quick enough.

On to the sports..

The Providence Bruins are in round 2 of the Atlantic Division Finals. Games 1 and 2 were this weekend in Providence.

Saturday night the PB's took on the Portland Pirates. The crowd was pretty decent with a smidge over 3900 in attendance. The atmosphere was great and the Bruins ended up winning the game 4-0. They had 40 shots on goal. There were three decent fights and they were the kind of fights were the guys really hated each other. They had that look of fire in their eyes. Bruins tough guy Steve MacIntyre took on Mike Hoffman and what made this fight odd was that Hoffman left his right glove on. He landed one or two but "Mac Attack" (I didn't call him that..the other ticket holders near me do/did) went nuts at the end and took him out. There were 44 minutes of penalties in the third period alone. A great fun game and we left on a high note.

Sunday afternoon the teams faced off again and this didn't take long to get out of hand (scoring wise). 3300+ took in this game and were treated to a 7-1 Prov Win. Providence goalie Tuukka Rask was hardly tested. The down side was about 1/2 way into the third he lost his shut out. At that time he has only 12 shots taken on him. Under worked perhaps? Martins Karsums had a hat trick and it seemed like everyone was getting on the score sheet. The team sort of coasted thru the third, but they scored 4 goals in that period. It sounds odd, but it seemed over well before that.

The teams head to Portland for games 3,4 and 5. Hopefully I won't have another game until we are on to the next round.

If you are in the area, check one of these games out. The price is right and the action is top notch.

Hey wanted to let you know I went to see Baby Mama at the movies and in the film Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings song 100 days 100 nights is in it. I thought that was pretty cool. I was like hey I recognize that song. March had it on his blog.
