Wow, “Boston Bag Swallowers” you do paint a disgusting picture. Holy $#!t ...the haters are going to howl when Boston wins the Stanley Cup. 

I'm revising my Tarasenko Cup-winning goal.  After flying thru the air a-la Bobby Orr, he bounces up off the ice and rips off his Blues jersey to reveal...a #4 Bobby Orr jersey.  Oh, and they win the Cup in TD Waterwhatevertheeff the stadium is called now.

St. Louis has been a great story while it lasted, but I'm afraid it's about to end.  They haven't seen anything this playoff season yet that matches what they're about to face in the Finals.

Think it’s safe to say the Bruins haven’t seen a physical team like they will see in the Blues. Tough to go against the Bruins but if Binnington can steal one in Boston who knows. I just want it to go 7

Good points, Ray.  After all, this playoff season has pretty much stuck to the script, no reason to predict an upset at this point.

Not a gopher fan

should add that when USA plays other countries in international sports I go for USA - as every American does I would guess 

 I graduated from UND- that trumps all

Great pace to the game so far. Blues can’t keep going to the box. No damage yet but there will be if it continues

Good call

Bruins powerplay was deadly in their last series and it was looking good tonight but nothing to show for it. So it was the law of averages. You knew they were going to put one in eventually

Bruins came out flat understandably after a 10 day layoff. Down 2-0 then they got their legs and dominated. This could be done in 4. I hope not but if tonight is any indication it won’t go more than 5

I think this Boston Bruins team is better than the 2011 team.

Great no-call on the Chara stick-chop on the Blues power play midway thru the 3rd.  Obviously the officials felt that calling a two-handed chop that snapped a guy's stick like a twig was unnecessary at that point in the game.

Oh come on, Mafia...that's reffing in the playoffs.  And yes, I get it - slashing and breaking a player's stick is typically a penalty, but it goes both ways. I suppose that was the PK that the Bruins were on when Krejci got that weak penalty for "elbowing" (or whatever they decided to call it) on Sammy Blais?  That was a gift to the Blues and should never have been called. 

And I'm sure you're just as miffed that David Perron didn't get a penalty for wrestling Torey Krug to the ground and ripping his helmet off and then hog tying him right in front of Rask (and the ref)?

That was a horrible non call.

Yea, how that wasn't called, I have no idea.

I'm not saying Perron didn't deserve a penalty, but Krugg initiated that conflict, held/tackled Perron as well, and then arguably charged Thomas.
