Got the chance to stay up and watch it live. I don’t think my nerves can stand much more. I get the NESN feed so it always sounds like the Ruins are going to win whatever happens and I’m left feeling alone. Mind you CBC with Bob Cole is about the same I think.
Eller and Pyatt put in a great shift tonight. Maybe Eller’s got his playoff head going after a nervous start in Game 1.
There’s no way a hockey player can dehydrate just through playing even if it’s in a sauna. There’s too much time available to take on fluid for that to happen.
Chara must be ill. But how ill and will it spread round the team if it’s a bug? Might explain the lack of energy from Lucic.
“Call the Doctor, don’t call the law” as they say.
Chara went to see Dr Recchi and told him that he hadn’t been feeling well lately.
Aftera brief examination Recchi left the room and came back with three different bottles of pills.
Dr Recchi said, “Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you wake up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after you eat lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water.”
Previous to this Chara did not use any prescription medications and was wary of getting drug tested, so he was startled to be put on so much medicine.
He demanded to know what the problem was.
Dr Recchi replied, “You’re not drinking enough water.”
Blue Bayou, the dehydration thing is a little weird. These are pros with professional trainers who won’t let this happen. Maybe because he’s so tall the air is thinner up there. This year we’ve beaten them six games to two and still the experts will say Boston was the better team and was just under the weather. But let them say anything they want, as long as Boston golfs while we carry on. And you’re absolutely right – Pyatt and Eller really contributed.
