The Bruins lines for the final game of the season are:
The Boston Bruins play their final game of the season tonight at the TD Banknorth garden against the Ottawa Senators. The game is at 7:00 PM. It is not on NESN, there is a Red Sox game. The game will be on an alternate channel (CN8 if you have comcast).
It's amazing how many people watch Red Sox games on TV now. Five or Six years ago, Bruins ratings were better than Red Sox ratings and NESN would show Burins games over Sox games. Not the case anymore.
Anyway, it's the last game of the season, game 82. Tim Thomas will start in net, as he should. 20 lucky fans will be taking home 20 sweaty jerseys after the game. I hope some little kid wins Chara's massive jersey. I also hope the Bruins put on a good show for the Bruins fans who have been with them through this pretty bad season. A shootout win, or a blowout would be nice. It would be terrible if Ottawa wins this game.
Another team ending their season today is Boston College. They however are not playing for nothing, but are playing in the NCAA championship game against Michigan State. Star goalie Cory Schneider, along with all-american Brian Boyle will lead BC to their second straight championship game appearence. Hopefully this year they will come out on top. This game is on ESPN.
