Ward Blanks Bruins
Sunday night the 'Canes elevated their level of play and the Bruins seemed surprised that they weren't cruising to victory like they had in the first 5 games of their playoffs. Ward stopped all 36 shots Boston threw at him including a couple amazing saves in the 3rd when the score was still 2-0....could have been 3-0 but a shot from LaRose with 2 secs left in the 2nd was ruled no goal and Toronto wouldn't overturn that despite TV views on Versus and other networks showing a sliver (a tiny sliver, but still...) of daylight btw the puck and the red goal line. Luckily it didn't matter! And the Bruins no longer are invincible.
Cullen got what i think was his first goal since returning from his injury, and it was shorthanded to boot.
I am missing Game 3 but will be back in the RBC center on Friday night, when the 'Canes will possibly (hopefully) be looking to send the series back with a 3-1 lead....but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
Also this week -- The Nasher in Durham keeps their streak of awesomeness going with Christian Marclay's Video Quartet opening Thursday night. When 3rd Eye Foundation came over to tour the US i went up for a show that Matt (3EF) did opening for Sonic Youth inside the foundation of the Brooklyn Bridge. Marclay was doing a set in the next room between bands, he had hundreds of what i think were 78s (memory could be fooling me there), none of them in sleeves, in stacks on a table and was grabbing them and playing them collage-style, it was pretty amazing.
