No One Matches Boston Bruins’ Effort

Pittsburgh Penguins v Boston Bruins - Game Three

The 2011 Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup because of three reasons.  One, Tim Thomas in goal.  Two, depth.  Three, effort.  It is that last one that has been increased in 2013, somehow, some way, by these current Bruins.

No one plays harder than the Boston Bruins.  It is incredible how they are first to the puck, first to crash the boards, first to the body, first to the net, first to everything.  And once they get there, forget about the opposition turning the tables.  It is the Boston Bruins’ table.  And their dinner sitting on it.  They don’t like to share.

Pittsburgh is toast.  Boston is up 3-0.  And reason number one is effort.  How bad does Boston want the Stanley Cup?  Forward Gregory Campbell broke his leg while blocking an Evgeni Malkin shot as Boston killed a penalty in the second period of Game 3.

Enough said.
