A seasoned hockey scribe writes another Bruins column, now firmly on the bandwagon.
Seen a black bear wandering in your neighborhood? Anything’s possible in this wacky New England spring of 2011 and this might be the Year of the Bruin.

It’s 90 degrees outside and the big boys are still playing hockey indoors, and last night the Bruins again routed the Vancouver Canucks, 4-0, to square their Stanley Cup Final joust at two games each. The series resumes tomorrow night on the other side of the continent. Game 6 will be Monday in the Causeway Street cauldron as the Bruins attempt to win their first Stanley Cup since Bobby Orr ruled in 1972.
The rest of the article goes on in the usual Shank manner - a lot of words, little to say.

Would it be a Shank column without one annoying Red Sox reference? Of course not!
It’s been like watching J.D. Drew play hockey with his twin brother.
