With Spring Fever striking across the country, sports fans are feasting on a full palette of pastimes from the measured cadence of MLB baseball to the fast, furious and physical pace of the NBA and NHL Playoffs.

Last Sunday afternoon, for example, it suddenly became far more than just another game for the Boston Bruins. It became a Playoff game as the bad boys from Boston started becoming far more physical. Boston scored a pair of power-play goals and out-muscled its smaller opponent all afternoon, reasserting itself as a tough, stubborn bunch. And they evened their series with the Detroit Red Wings 1-1.

“The Bruins, who lost Game 1 by a score of 1-0, haven’t been shut out in consecutive playoff games since Martin Brodeur of the Devils held them scoreless twice in 1995,”said Marta Ault at online ticket marketplace “On Sunday, fans packed the arena to see Boston avoid being shut out for a second straight game.”

“That’s why we’re proud to offer fans the most complete and continuously refreshed selection of sports tickets online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” added Ault.

“To access the complete listing of NHL Playoff tickets we currently have available, fans can go to and click on the Sports header – then select their sport, team and tickets.”

The Bruins, who took just 25 shots in Game 1, unleashed 18 in the first period alone. They made it a point to push Detroit around. On the other hand, the Wings are one of the NHL’s least physical teams and usually avoid responding to scraps and scrums. The team, in fact, is known to employ its highly effective “turn-the-other-cheek” approach to draw cheap power plays against aggressive opponents.

Nevertheless, there was plenty of pushing and shoving after whistles on Sunday. As the first period ended, Bruins captain Zdeno Chara and Detroit’s Brendan Smith began tussling near center ice. The 6-foot-9 Chara challenged Smith, who wisely declined to go — he’s listed at seven inches shorter than Chara — but the message was clear: The Wings were in for a turbulent time.

Last year’s Stanley Cup playoffs ended with three overtime finishes in the last six games, the kind of neck-and-neck battle of which legends are made. The series between the Boston Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks began on June 12 and lasted until June 24 and was the first Stanley Cup Finals series between two Original Six teams since 1979, and the seventh since its first expansion in 1967. In Game Six of the Finals, trailing the Bruins 2–1 with 76 seconds left in the third period, the Blackhawks scored two goals in 17 seconds to close the series 4–2.

Boston met Detroit in Game 3 last night with results unavailable at press time. Other incendiary match-ups this week include Game 4 for the Colorado Avalanche versus the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night. The Avalanche lead the series 2-1.

The Blues, up 2-1 in the series, play the Blackhawks tonight. The Ducks, also up 2-1, meet the Stars and Pittsburg, up 2-1, takes the ice against the Blue Jackets.
