I'm Gonna Kill the Bear!! Atlanta vs Boston

I love that they play this clip at the Bruins games. It's from one of my favorite movies, "The Edge."

Our final night in Blueland! The big bad Bruins were in town and we needed to KILL THE BEAR! Fans were excited at the prospect of a rough game due to the near line brawl that occurred the last time these guys met. Even though I wanted to kill the bear, I adore Tim Thomas and wanted to take pictures of him.

From down by the Bruins bench, I could see this sign. Mind=blown! A Johnny Oduya sign combined with an 80s reference? Epic Win! I like the Greek Gods sign, too.

Fortunately I've been stalking Timmy long enough to know where to stand to get good pics.


Tim: Is that chick still taking pics? She didn't even bring me a sign this time.

Still not a fan of the all white, but it IS different.

McQuaid praying for a win.

Lucic handling the puck.

The biggest player in the NHL, 6'9'' Zdeno Chara.

Timmy in the net facing some shots.

If anyone on this team should score, it should be David Krejci...he's on my fantasy team!

Timmy doing what he is good at, playing the puck.

Whoa! Looks like Daniel Paille is about to give us a show!

Higher! Higher!

Damn it Seidenberg, out of the way!!!

Damn, how far do those sock things go up???

Timmy being Timmy. He's such a fun goalie to watch.

Timmy making a save.

Wonder goalie powers activate!

Timmy let Tuukka have some net time.

Deep thoughts by Tuukka Rask.

Notice his shiny white pads...he hasn't seen a lot of rubber this season!

Marc Savard looking stunned.

He's handsomely delicious! Johnny Boychuck.

Boychuck has gorgeous eyes.

Swarm the Tuukka!

Bruins baby, Tyler Seguin taking a few last minute shots. Looks like he has the same routine Burmistrov does.

Boychuck says picture time is over.

Two Captains in front Timmy, both with different objectives.

Tim does his majestic stretch so the ice girls can service the crease.

Peverley taking it to the net.

Sopes tries to put it in the net.

What better intermission entertainment than a wedding!!?! Two super Blueland fans decided to tie the knot at center ice.

Think it sounds tacky? HA! It makes me want to divorce my husband so we can get remarried like this. How many people can say that after they said "I do" 17k people cheered, fire shot, a goal horn sounded and then you road a zamboni??
First period was awesome. Toby scored a goal and on the power play so that's more points for my fantasy team. We went into the 2nd tied at 1 and 1.

Big Buff in front of the net.

Why so blue, Blue Freaks? The game is going well. I think the Blue Freak in the middle is having a wardrobe malfunction.

Johnny working hard in the corner.

Paille and Buff get acquainted in front of the net.

Nice. I went all season last season and this season without a bird on the kiss cam. Philly didn't do it. Slugs fans didn't do it. Not even Rangers fans did it. Stay classy Boston.

Pavs slides over to make a save.

Other side, Pavs!

YES! Toby Enstrom with another power play goal!! Unfortunately Blake Wheeler also scored and we went into the 3rd period tied 2 to 2.

Tim making a dramatic save.

Timmy flopping around.

The third period came and went....we were still tied. Over time came and went, still tied. SHOOT OUT! We were nervous, Pavs had never won a shootout. Not to mention, one of the best goalies in the league was on the other side of the ice.

Pavs: Please God Please God Please God Please God Please God

First up for the Thrashers...Tim Stapleton. WTF?

Forgive me for doubting! Stapleton scored!

Wheeler coming in on Pavs. Pavs SAVES!

Little coming in.


Thrashers WIN! Pavs wins his first shootout.

First star of the game, my Pocket Swede!!

That's me with the Greek Gods sign! And that's my friend Heidi with the "Sweep the Leg, Johnny" sign. She's excited to make an appearance on this blog. :)

Before OT and the SO, I noticed Pavs sitting on the ice, getting all zen. I've never noticed that before. Guess it worked!

Beth, I thought that was you! Love it! I'm so in love with that "Sweep The Leg Johnny" sign, i'm green with jealousy. It's one of those things where I'm like "WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THAT?!?"

Beth Dolgner January 4, 2011 at 8:11 AM  

I really have to introduce you to Heidi. I think you two have a lot in common (like a love of goalies). Johnny saw the sign, but we're not sure he got it. Other guys were laughing, though. Maybe Karate Kid wasn't big in Sweden?
