"To tell you the truth, it didn't really matter," Vigneault replied. "At the end of the day, they won and we're going back home in front of our fans [for a] one-game showdown to win the Cup. That's it."See, because I'm pretty sure it did matter. But if you can't SEE that it mattered, I'm not going to change your mind.
Anyway. Dear Bruins, I kindly request that while you are playing game seven in Vancouver that you pretend you are in Boston. That's all. Just pretend. But you have to pretend REALLY well. You have to pretend well enough to convince the rest of us that you're convinced. We'll be able to tell. Maybe team practice should involve some make-believe time. Just a suggestion!
