Remember your hatred for the Bruins in this awesome, one-minute video

The Edmonton Oilers are in Vancouver Friday night, and I think it’s safe to say that nobody cares. The Canucks aren’t even hiding how completely and thoroughly they’re looking past this game to the next one. The game starts at 6pm. I can only assume it’s because the team just wants to be finished an hour earlier than usual.

This weekend is all about the Boston Bruins, who, thanks to a dumb NHL schedule and then an even dumber NHL lockout, are only just now returning to Vancouver for the first time since they won the Stanley Cup.

Now, it’s possible that you don’t feel the hatred for these Bruins that you once did. After all, it’s been two and a half years, and there have been moments of catharsis in those 30 months — the Canucks went into Boston and got a small measure of revenge back in January of 2012, and we got to watch the Bruins lose a Stanley Cup Final just this past spring. Sure, we had to watch the Blackhawks win it in the process, but, you know, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

And anyway, it’s pretty easy to recover that hatred. I’ll bet that this great, short video by Tanbir Rana, one of our favourite Youtubers, brings it all right back. It’s one minute long. In that minute, you will go from this to this.

Perfect. Now I’m John Tortorella levels of ragey. This is me right now:

Bring on the Bruins.

That’s Filter’s cover of “Happy Together” from the Great Gatsby soundtrack, if you were wondering. It’s a great choice for a great video.

    Those feelings were obviously still simmering just beneath the surface. By viewing that video clip I relived, and renewed, those intense emotions all over again.

    I wonder if Tortorella will be using this *video strategy* to supercharge the team for Saturday’s game.

    I live in Boston and it will be awhile before I get over this. On the one hand, I have a lot of friends now who are Bruins fans, but every time I pass through the Garden (it’s right over a train station) and have to see Marchand’s stupid smiling face it all comes right back …

    I left anger behind right around when I saw my fellow citizens torching the city. Suddenly the loss wasn’t so important anymore.

    Just a general feeling of bitterness/sadness these days when I think about 2011. Can’t even bring myself to watch those playoff videos anymore – just bums me out.

    Recent incidents confirm that the bRuins are the epitome of all that is evil in the NHL (OK, maybe second after Gary Bettman).

    Go to hell. Not sure how I let you talk me into watching that, now I have to go and watch the therapeutic Cody Hodgson goal against Thomas during the rematch from the following year to make me feel better, and just hope that we see a repeat performance from…oh wait.

      It hurts every time I think of us trading away an operating Cody Godson when Kesler shoulc be getting an operation. Still Kessler could be a return of Bertuzzi (less the – unfortunate – incident…

    Be Truthful:

    How many here felt a small measure of happiness to see Marchand get knee’d in the head?

    Yeah, me too.

    Let’s say Vancouver beats the Bruins, will that make choking against them two years ago feel a little better? The regular season is meaningless, it’s all about what you do in the post season. Vancouver can’t beat Boston in a seven game series and that is all that matters.

      Like Boston “can’t” beat Philadelphia in a 7 game series? Long way between “didn’t” and “can’t”

    Maybe if your Canucks team wasn’t led by a couple of wussy brothers who can’t stand up for themselves you might win something. How embarrassing it must have been to watch Daniel Sedin just sit there while a rookie punched him in the face repeatedly. As a man, how can you not defend yourself? I’d be ashamed to be a fan of a team led by a total wuss.

      So…. You are a fan of the Canucks then, or you’re not? It’s hard to tell because it sounds like you really like the Sedins, but…well, it’s confusing.
