Really love to see the team that the Leafs should have beaten in the first round waltz into the final.

1) How the fuck do all four officials miss a pretty fucking obvious hand pass?

2) Why the fuck isn't that reviewable?

Rob Thomas saw God on that hit. I love when teams try to out physical the Bruins. It never seems to work out well for them.

I stand corrected. The Blues are throwing their weight around 5 on 5 and have the advantage there.

If this goes 7 the final three games will be played over 9 days (game 7 would be on the 12th). Who the fuck came up with THAT schedule?

Blues came out on a mission last night and it showed right from the first period so I'm not surprised they evened up the series. This could definitely go 7 games and decide on which team mentally/physically is willing to go harder.

That's exhibit #1000 of why I don't sit in poor people seats. That one and some of the Rams game shit is always in those sections. I know it's the Finals but in that case it's even more likely to be true where the person can't really afford to be there and is going to take it out on someone at some point.

When I used to go to Kings games and sit in the nosebleeds that happened a few times. There's also a massive drop up there and you never feel like you're on steady footing, so that's just fucking stupid.

When I used to go to Chargers games, I would only sit in the lower bowl because of what you said.

Anyway, the refs blew another call in the last game by not calling the trip which led to the game winning goal. The Blues could win the Cup at home, so good luck to them.

When I went to Survivor Series and saw Enzo get hauled out in front of me, I guess the good seats aren't that safe either. Still though. No poor people shit for me.

A home game 7 no-show that would make Bruce Boudreau proud. I knew after that first Blues goal after the Bruins were stonewalled this was not going to end well. The top line was a complete no-show for most of the series, especially Marchand and Pasternak.

Congrats to the Blues for finally winning the big one. Bruins out shot them but Binnington stonewalled them.

The Cup passing is always great if not for the constant f-bombs from every player.

I can't even be mad because the Bruins seemed madly inconsistent all playoffs aside from sweeping a clearly overmatched Carolina team. The Blues took the lead and suffocated them defensively for two periods, but it didn't help that the Bruins were insanely sloppy with the puck and didn't seem to have a plan aside from throwing it at the net and seeing what happened. Marchand especially was fucking awful and I'm sure nobody is sad about that.

I love their montages at the end of the playoffs.

Binington played out of his mind in Game 7. Bruins had a lot of good chances (though they didn't go top shelf as much as I thought they should've like St. Louis was doing) while the Blues capitalized on their chances. Good series and congrats to St. Louis for their victory.

Good. The shit he said was as racist as I’ve ever heard on a sports program.

Could we have people stop with the "you people" rants? We all know what you are trying to get around by saying shit like that.

The Blues dumped their coach last year and won the Cup. Why not?

The Bruins look good but it's the same problem of the top line being the only real producers and not much scoring depth. I also get a huge kick out of how completely inept they are at shootouts. They might as well call it a night after OT and save everyone the time.

Whoa. The Leafs fired Babcock.

The best part of it is Mike Commodore going after him.

Fucking Leafs.

They controlled the play for a good chunk of the game, but the 2 saves that Anderson didn't make on the first and third goals and Babcock not switching up the lines at all when they needed offence are what killed them.

Patrick Marleau getting a regular shift, especially power play time, when he was the worst forward on the ice all series is ridiculous.
Should have fired him after his terrible coaching job in game 7, but I'm actually surprised they did it.

I still get mad thinking about how much ice time Marleau got when he shouldn't even have been in the lineup.
