Zolak: Bruins/Canucks ‘Just What I Needed’ Post Super Bowl

BOSTON (CBS) – With the Seattle Seahawks 43-8 trouncing of the Denver Broncos signaling the end of the NFL season, Scott Zolak finds himself in a weird transitional period.

“This is a bad week for me I’m just warning everybody now. This is post football and the official end of the world. This is the week where I break out my Bryan Adams CDs and I sit there and stare at myself in a dark room in the mirror trying to figure out what’s left in life.”

Maybe you feel the same way as Zo?

If you’re like him then this game should get you back into form.

“This is a game that snaps you back into it. This is a must see, two-and-a-half hour, uninterrupted, pure hate hockey game. You want to see people’s faced bleed tonight. You want to see pucks hit guys right square in the eyes. Get the body bags out! Sweep the freakin’ leg! This is Vancouver! This is just what I needed post Super Bowl, and it’s in your building.”

It’s not Montreal or Pittsburgh, but Vancouver is right up there according to Andy Gresh.

It’s not often the Bruins get to play the Canucks seeing as how they’re positioned in the Western Conference, but with Roberto Lugono, Alex Burrows, Ryan Kesler, and the Sedins on the ice with John Tortorella behind the bench, there’s sure to be plenty of hatred to go around tonight at TD Garden.
