Boston Bruins

Bad Beat

The B’s loss to the New Jersey Devils last night reminds me of my bad beat at the poker table at Foxwoods Casino. I had Big Slick diamond suited. My first playable hand of the day. I was short stack and decided to go all in when the flop came up with 2 diamonds and 10 was the high card. I got one guy out of the 10 to call. He had paired the 10’s. I had 13 outs and was a heavy favorite going into the turn and river. Unfortunately no Kings, Aces, or Diamonds hit. Game over, fight another day. The Bruins outshot the Devils 31-18 last night and lost on the weakest goal that Timmy Thomas has given up all year. The Bruins played like they had Big Slick, but got beat by a goal equivalent to a pair of Deuces. Game over, fight another day. Bruins nation is getting a little nervous with the B’s on their first 3 game losing streak of the year. However, their deck was short an Ace and a King last night in Michael Ryder and Chuck Kobesew, and a goalie that played well, resulting in a Bad Beat. Unlike me who won’t have a shot to redeem my Bad Beat until Thursday’s poker night, the Bruins will get their shot tonight against the Preds in Nashville as they play game 2 of this 5 game roady while Disney on Ice calls the Garden home. They will still play without Ryder and Kobesew again, but I look for Kessel to pot his first goal this evening since coming back from mono. Fear not Bruins fans, all teams go through a rough patch, even the team with the most points in the NHL.
