Did anyone seriously think the Bruins could lose this game, in this city, on this weekend?It wasn't Shank, at least not before the game.
Our team. Our town. Our holiday.Is this 'possibility' an answer to a question no one has asked?
The Bruins defeated the estimable Detroit Red Wings, 4-1, on Easter Sunday, squaring their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series, 1-1. Playing in front of the customary 17,565 — some of whom probably gave up swearing, drinking, and/or fighting for Lent — the Bruins came out in smash-mouth mode and took it to the visitors, erasing any ridiculous possibility that this would be the final home game of a dominant 2013-14 season.
