Yep, the Bruins are inside Hart’s head. It is never good to lose. I am not going to look at all the excuses - 1/3 of the team missing and defense playing wing. I am a staunch character. There’s nothing worse than a staunch woman … S-T-A-U-N-C-H.
Following hockey has taught me so much about LIFE... “aboot” PEOPLE. Hockey is a rhythm sport. Sometimes we are the goalie. We can only react to our surroundings. Are you will to leave your crease? What matters most Quality or Quantity? 
@Bart Ell do you care about shots per game?

"no more rats" = Mario Tremblay.

Patrick Jacques Roy is part of your team's history @PolkaDot  :)

He can play on his knees and stay on his knees in his puck-blocking position. He doesn’t have to move much. The more he moves, the more he opens himself up. The more athletic he is, the more tempted he is to move, and the more he moves, the more trouble he creates for himself.

a good LONG read.

EXPLAIN YOUR HATE, please and thank you. Mr. Bart.

I believe it is media related, years of CBC, TSN and Sportsnet only covering them.
Since my return to Canada we have lived in the Toronto center of the earth bubble so I started watching games in French.
I may not understand every word but the words I do are music to my ears since they are Leafless.

Indeed.  :)
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

Merci!!!I get it.
Could or will @Bart Ell  explain to me the meaning of the word "Anglophones." I watched this movie last week "The Rocket: Maurice Richard (2005)." I do not really understand French, however, I know how to read subtitles. I used to visit Old Quebec City and Montreal a lot. Since I studied Latin in school, I was Ok with reading a French Menu.  During my early trips to up North, I never stopped to visit Toronto. I saw no reason to visit.
Why do I love Quebec City and not Toronto?
"After a portion of the Spectrum's roof was damaged on March 1, 1968, the Flyers played all but two of their remaining regular season home games of the 1967-68 season at the Coliseum in Quebec City."

Francophone = French as first language
Anglophone = English as first language
Allophone = Other as first language
