Savard’s Comeback…

April 19, 2010

We were pumped, like the rest of you, at the news today that Marc Savard is skating and looking a lot better. We were also encouraged, yet hesitant, at the news that he is trying to come back this series. He said he is still a bit away, but he is trying.

However, we’re calling his comeback tonight. Here’s how we see it going down (forgive our crappy photoshop skills… we’re working on it!):

Mid-way through the first period, the Bruins and Sabres are locked in  yet another epic duel. The score is 0-0 and due to Patrick Kaleta being a total idiot, the Bruins are on their 14th powerplay, having gone 0-13 so far. The Bruins are desperate and fading.

Krejci passes to Boychuk, who passses to Chara, who passes back to Krejci, who passes to Bergeron, who passes to Boychuk. Boychuk winds up to take a slapper… and the lights go out…

When the lights come back on, Savard is behind Ryan Miller in full gear!!!

Savard is back, and he is pissed! He nails Ryan Miller with a chair!!!!!!

Miller is down and Savard scores before Miller can recover!!!!


Savard’s WWF style entrance music pulses through the TD Garden speakers as the crowd erupts! But Marc Savard isn’t done. Oh no. He wants more. Savard charges towards the Buffalo locker room!

Inside, he finds Thomas Vanek on the trainer’s table, the trainer working on Vanek’s tender ankle. Savard pushes aside the trainer and throws Vanek to the floor! Oh no… he’s not going to… my god Savard has Vanek in the sharpshooter!

The hockey world is stunned. The refs know some kind of penalty should be given for Savard’s brutality here today, but they are scared. Savard releases his hold on Vanek and comes back out to center ice, flashing his championship belt.

Jim Ross is absolutely stunned, but still finds time to plug his business!

Inspired by Savard’s incredible comeback, the Bruins go on to defeat the Sabres 10-1. Ryan Miller is day-to-day with a chair imprint in his head and wounded pride.

At least, that is how we see it all going down.

Get well Marc. We miss you.

    i’d sure watch more wrestling if it was on ice. or at the very least, just let hockey players hit each other with chairs.

    Epic post, man. Simply epic. It gets the old imaginatory fluids brewin’.
    Because Madd Bear Savvy is salivat–uh–savvilating buckets of rabies-frothed foam, just itching for the leash to be let off so he can shred and claw a path back to the rink.
    “This ain’t no regular player, jive turkey! Dig?”
    “Look everyone! It’s … it’s … IT’S MARC SAVARD! … And he’s hungry! Christ have mercy on our souls!”
    That’s right: he’s back.
    He’s loved.
    And generally well-thought-of.
    A number of remote (puckhead) tribes purportedly worship stone idols of his image.
    He’s a savvage force of fucking nature.
    He’s Marc Savard. (Don’t you forget it.)
    In a matter of seconds, for no particular reason, he’d snap your neck, remove your throat, piss all over your new couch, then repeatedly ravvage your wife on the floor (because the couch was messed up … but she’d totally ask for his number … and he’d even send her flowers the next day … he’s a monster AND a gentleman!), all before dishing a ridiculous, behind the back, no-look, one-handed, broken-stick, tape-to-tape pass to Marco Sturm (God knows, someone needs to step in and hand that cat a gimme, ’cause ol’ Marco ain’t getting it done on his lonesome) for the OT game-winner!!!!!!!!!!!
    Check and mate, Sabres. Check and mate.

    [But, yeah, in all seriousness, much respect for Savard. Truly one of my favorite B’s, and that’s saying quite a lot. So, I hope they get him 100% healthy before we subject him to a gritty Sabres squad on the brink of elimination (Game 5) and still sore over the Vanek injury. Last thing we need is any best offensive player-for-best offensive player “revenge” to be perpetrated (as I have seen so many idiotic Buffalo fans calling for in certain cringe-worthy comment sections).
    Injuries are a part of hockey, I get it, but they suck, especially in the playoffs, regardless of whether they happen to a player from our squad, from their squad, or from most any damn team (unless, that is, they happen to happen to a cheap, shit-heel goon named Matt Cooke from the Pittsburgh Tuxedo-Birds).
    Maybe Savard can strap on the skates when they make the Finals in a couple weeks … or lace up his cleats on the golf-course. Whichever the case may be. Just as long as he’s the same old Savvy. Later days.]
