Check out the new team in town… the Winnipeg Jets!  While the NHL is deciding what to do with the divisions and teams, the 2011 – 2012 season will be played out with the Jets as a “Southeast Division” team.  What the NHL should do is move all the rest of the southeast division teams to Canada!  The Carolina Hurricanes could move to Nova Scotia, the Florida Panthers could move to Saskatchewan, the Tampa Bay Lightning could move to Yellowknife, and the Washington Capitals could move to Youkon!  All Joking aside, here is the NHL Schedule for the 2011-2012 Winnipeg Jets:

Option 1:

Minnesota From Northwest to Pacific
Dallas from Pacific to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Northwest

 

Option 2:

Saint Louis from Central to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Central

 

Option 3:

Columbus from Central to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Central

 

Option 4:

Nashville from Central to Southeast
Winnipeg from Southeast to Central

 

Option 5:

Nashville from Central to Southeast
Dallas from Pacific to Central
Colorado from Northwest to Pacific
Winnipeg from Southeast to Northwest

 

Option 6:

Nashville from Central to Southeast
Minnesota from Northwest to Central
Winnipeg from Southeast to Northwest

 

Geographically, option 5 makes the most sense.  The option that makes the most sense with the least amount of impact is Option 4.  My favorite option is Option 6… I believe that would have a good balance of geographic relocation as well as only affecting 3 teams and 3 divisions.

From what I hear, this NHL season (2011 – 2012) will be played out with Winnipeg in the Southeast division and a restructure will occur before the 2012 – 2013 season is scheduled out.

The Boston Red Sox welcomed the Boston Bruins with open arms to Fenway Park on Sunday to celebrate the Stanley Cup Championship.

All Bruins players got to throw out a pitch for the first pitch of the game and had a duck boat tour around the field while holding the Stanley Cup.  The video board showed a highlight reel of all the great moments in the NHL playoffs.

From Nesn.com:

For about one hour Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park, we were offered up just about the best example of what a winning sports town can produce when everything comes together just right.

It was practically an embarrassment of riches. Not that anyone should feel guilty about it.

Beneath sparkling skies, the duck boats rolled out of the center field gate filled with the Stanley Cup champions, who wore Red Sox caps and Bruins jerseys. After a ride around the warning track and a slow march with the Cup across the lawn, each one of them threw out a first pitch to a fleet of Red Sox players lined up dugout to dugout, all while the Cup sat perched on the rubber.

“There was a lot going on. I thought it was exciting,” manager Terry Francona said. “I think the fans enjoyed it, I think our players enjoyed it. I think the Brewers players enjoyed it. It was nice to see the Bruins get to celebrate their championship in our ballpark. I think everybody enjoyed themselves, and then when we score six in the first inning, it makes it even better.”

Then came the actual game, which immediately served up a reminder that the city not only has the best hockey team on the planet, but it just might have the best baseball team as well.

That’s where the guilty feeling set in.

Moments after the Sox gave out hugs to the Stanley Cup champs, they saw Tim Wakefield nearly strike out the side in the first inning. He missed out on the feat by a pitch, but the ovation after the frame was about as loud as you will find for a 1-2-3 top of the first.

Then, the best offense in baseball turned fans that were already out of their minds with elation into incredulous subjects.

Jacoby Ellsbury singled. Dustin Pedroia singled. After a wild pitch, Adrian Gonzalez reached on an error that scored a run. Kevin Youkilis sent a three-run shot over the Green Monster. David Ortiz singled. J.D. Drew singled.

Six batters. Each of them reached. Fenway Park, still reeling from the Bruins ceremony, was in a state of ecstasy.

There were two quick outs to bring the masses back to Earth, but a walk to Josh Reddick loaded the bases, and Ellsbury doubled in two runs in his second at-bat of the inning. The Bruins had barely left the field and it was 6-0. Many fans stood for the bulk of the hour.

“Phenomenal. It was absolutely phenomenal,” Wakefield said. “Watching the duck boats come in, it brought back a lot of memories of us in ’04 and ’07. Very happy for those guys. Got a chance to meet a lot of them in the clubhouse today and got my picture with the Cup. It was a lot of fun.”

Meanwhile, in the other dugout sat the Brewers, a team with three playoff appearances in 43 years that will forever be overshadowed by a football team, albeit a winning one, that plays two hours north. That is no knock on the AL Central leaders, but the dichotomy between the two organizations was notable — not only in their histories, but in the vibe which inhabits their respective cities.

Simply put, there are not many scenes like the one that played out Sunday afternoon at Fenway Park. Just do your best not to feel guilty about it.

Despite an onslaught of offense in the last 10 minutes of the game, the Bruins could only get within 1 goal of the Tampa Bay Lightning last night in game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals.  The Bruins gave up yet another opening minute goal which seems to be a huge factor in the series.  If Tampa can get a goal in the first minute of the game, they build themselves a nice position… annoyed Bruins players, loud fans, a lead and motivation.

There’s no doubt that the Lightning are quick and crafty, but the Bruins are a more solid team all around.  The only exception is on the power play.  It is to the point where the Bruins should avoid drawing penalties.  The power play percentage is horrible and the production seems much, much better when it is 5 on 5!

Don’t count out the Bruins just yet, similar things happened in round 1 against Montreal.  The Bruins have proved to be resourceful and willing to do anything to win a series.  Game 7 is in Boston this Friday… you can be assured that the TD Garden will be LOUD!  It’s not too often that the Bruins get to play for a chance to be in the Stanley Cup Finals!

The Vancouver Canucks are patiently awaiting the winner of this series.  Both Boston and Tampa played Vancouver in Vancouver this season and both Boston and Tampa won.

No matter what the outcome of the game on Friday, this has been an amazing season for the Boston Bruins!  You won’t want to miss this game! Bruins vs Lightning tickets Game 7

GO BRUINS!

Boston Bruins vs Tampa Bay Lightning Game 3

Boston Bruins vs Tampa Bay Lightning Game 3 in Tampa, FL

Last night (Thursday, 5/19/2011), the Lightning skated fast, forced turnovers, won battles and successfully got shots through to Tim Thomas.  The only thing they couldn’t do is get the puck past him.  The Lightning played one of their best games of the year but couldn’t score.

The Bruins did a good job on defense and caused frustration by the Lightning.  The Lightning had plenty of opportunities… power plays, break-aways, odd man rushes, excellent scoring opportunities and so on.

Boston on the other hand, had a terrific defensive game and an okay offensive game.  Scoring just 1:09 into the game was David Krejci (from Lucic and Boychuk). It took all the way until the 3rd period to see another goal and it was the last goal of the game.  Andrew Ference lit the lamp (from Ryder and Kelly) at 8:12 in the third. That was the final score, 2 – 0.

This was the type of game that both teams expected to play for every game of the series… low scoring, defensive games. Games 1 and 2 were purely offensive.  To give you an idea of how offensive game 2 was, Tyler Seguin (second career playoff game), had 2 goals and 2 assists… in the 2nd period.  Yes, that’s right, the 19 year old KID had part to do with 4 goals in the 2nd period alone.  Through 3 playoff games, the rookie has 6 points.

This series is getting interesting!  Next game is Saturday, May 21st, 2011.  Go Bruins!
