B's fans respond to 3OT loss
BOSTON (WHDH)--It was a long and disappointing game one. The Bruins held a 3-1 lead in the third period but it took three more periods before the Blackhawks got the win 4-3.
“That was a very long and tough game for both teams so you just have to bounce back and regroup tomorrow,” said Tyler Seguin.
Bruins fans this morning grizzly and groggy.
“Oh, my heart was in my throat the entire time, so I was a nervous wreck,”
said Karen Barren, who stayed up all night.
“I can take it, probably gonna pull some hair out but I spent most of the 2nd and 3rd OT with my face in my hands saying c'mon c'mon c'mon,” said Bruins fan, Derrick.
“I think that's it. I think there's gonna be a lot of close games. I don't think any blow outs,” another fan said.
It looked like Chara was going to end it after the second overtime.
His shot echoed throughout the rink, but it didn't go in.
Nathan Horton went down, and never returned with an unknown upper body injury.
Tuukka Rask finished with 59 saves off 63 shots, the highest number he's ever faced.
“It sucks because you're tired and you played almost two games but at the end of the day, it's a loss and that's the only thing that matters. You have to move forward,” said Tuukka Rask.
But, you don't have to win them all, just four. And the B's know that.
“Last time we won the Cup, we lost the first two games to Vancouver. It never stopped us from coming back. This certainly won't,” Coach Claude Julien said.
