The Patriots won by 3 TDs (at least I predicted 2), and they somehow invented a new way for a Belichick to win in the playoffs. Never pass the ball. And damn it worked. LeGarrette Blount our beast moded Marshawn Lynch on a day when he went beast mode. Ridley looked like the guy they drafted. And the defense got the turnovers that would be key against the Colts. And no injuries.
And then the Bruins solve like all of their temporary issues from the past few games in a night. Eriksson comes back, helps death immediately, and records the only primary assist of the night. B’s kill the lone penalty they faced, and Tuukka gets a 26 save shutout. Exactly what they needed.
Damn, it’s good to be a fan here. 8th AFC championship in 13 years and a Bruins team that will likely have a decade long streak of contending in the playoffs.
