    Perhaps some have needed to take their morning after pill . . . Max is likely "squeezing" his stick a little too much at this point . . . he will come around. Would like to see PK try the JC Tremblay flip shot from centre ice . . . surprised that he has not already given it a try. This would be a nice addition to his repertoire. (Apologies to those who have no memory of JC and his two/three bounce flip from center ice . . . ) It is always too early to start projecting into the next series, until the current series is actually over. Last night, as occurs in every game, every time that a game of hockey is played, the Refs and Linesmen make mistakes . . . now if they made a mistake as often as passes are missed (both sending and receiving) then it would truly be unbearable to watch.

    Early in the season, Max's goal last night would never have happened as he would have stayed to the outside and fired a backhander towards the net. He is indeed playing with some fire and determination now, that he has not previously had or at least shown. Such a large part of playing the game is about the "mental" side of each individual. Those who can remain confident (and to a certain extent, comfortable) about their skill/ability are the most consistent over the long haul. Hopefully (and I was one of the many detractors of Max early in the season, often equating him with Borje Salming and the innate ability to come out of the corner with a dozen eggs in his back pocket all still intact . . . ) Max can channel this confidence into many years of success . . . though "young" he does not seemingly have to worry about making a mistake and then being subjected to the old school coaching "techniques" that Eller and PK are the recipients of (oops, sorry for straying and taking a cheap shot at our "current" coach - Timo made me do it!) on a regular basis, so he has a chance of maintaining his confidence level.

    First a warning to those whose blood pressure may already be a tad too high . . . reading the following may add to your need for medication . . . that said, there is a great picture of "the hip check" if you follow the link that is below! BTW, the ability to throw a perfect hip check as this one was, is something that is very tough to execute and this one was indeed a thing of beauty and so much harder to "throw" than a straight pounding of someone into the boards. The rest of the game that culminated with the spear clearly (and I hate to bring this up again, but it I do believe, shows that the Chara and Max "thing" was pre-meditated - it just took a while for the right set of circumstances to make an appearance . . . Lucic spent the game looking to "get back" for the hip check . . . http://www.boston.com/blogs/sports/hockey/bruins/bruinsdaily/2014/03/bruins-canadiens_superlatives.html CranbrookEd Mr. Beliveau: "Pure Pak mais oui"! . . .
