FERRALL-A-VENT Tuesday June 18, 2013
How about the Bruins? They lead the Stanley Cup finals 2-1 after a 2-0 shutout over the Hawks at The Garden last night in Boston. Tuukka Rask was awesome. They got goals from Daniel Paille and Patrice Bergeron from Jagr and now they lead the finals 2-1. They have a chance on Wednesday night to go up 3-1 and think about if they had won game one, which they lost in triple overtime on the Shaw goal at the Madhouse on Madison, they would be going on Wednesday night for a sweep of the Blackhawks. If they win, they’re in a commanding position in the finals, that’s for sure. Remember they won it in 2011 so they would win another cup, two in three years, if Boston can get it done but they still got a lot of work to do.
Tonight it’s all about game six. The Heat have to win or the Spurs are World Champs, it’s as simple as that. But, we know what happens after a Heat loss and they lost Game 5. Usually they come back and win. In fact the last six times they’ve lost in the playoffs they’ve won the next game and they won it big. Dating back to the regular season it’s 13 games in a row that they win after a loss. In their last 12 games after a loss they’ve won straight up and against the spread. So, the Heat are very dangerous. You got to think they’re going to show up. You got to think they’re going to win tonight and force a Game 7 for all the marbles on Thursday night. We’re live at 10PM East, 7PM West on CBS Sports Radio, cbsportsradio.com and radio.com.
