Kinda fitting that Tavares leaves and the Islanders end up going farther than the team he goes to the very next season.  This may be the most wide-open the playoffs have been in a while.

Matthews and Marner were on the ice for about 6 seconds 5-on-5 during a line change and almost scored and didn't get any chances after that.

Nylander was saddled with Brown and Marleau all series and didn't get any chances to to move up to the top 2 lines for some reason when you've got 10 minutes left to save your season.

A totally winnable series and they shit the bed.

What a fucking crazy 3rd period and OT in San Jose.  Vegas now knows the heartbreak of the NHL playoffs.

Yep, he was a wall from Game 4, 53 minutes in Game 5 and tonight.

McAvoy call I thought was bullshit, but the Bruins were much more aggressive this series and their penalty killing units were great, many times the Jackets did not get any good looks.

I'm really surprised the Jackets didn't start taking headshots in the 3rd.

Rask has been doing his best Tim Thomas playoff impersonation at the right time for the Bruins in this matchup against Carolina. I'm also always happy when Carolina gets knocked out by the Bruins (RIP Hartford).

I've been so conflicted this series as far as who to root for.   Living in Raleigh it's been fun to see people get excited about hockey, but I also didn't want to see the Canes possibly win a SECOND cup before the Sabres got one (not much risk in that anymore) but also, as a Buffalo sports fan, fuck Boston.

Gonna be rooting hard for whoever comes out of the West.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.



In other news: Marc Andre Fleury.

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.

 :-\ Yikes. Part of me isn't really surprised a story of this nature came out though. Even if it isn't Babcock himself. Ten years ago though is going to make it harder to find proof on it though.
