Yup.  They minimize mistakes.   Tough to play against.

So, I think the Blues are excellent, as are the Bruins, but both had cakewalks in the Conference Finals. Both teams better be ready to step it up for the Finals.

5 of 14 heading into the finals. Let's go Blues. That said I'm picking the Bruins just to jynx them for Tim. :biggrin:

Also...

For once the other team choked INSTEAD of the Sharks!

There is still plenty of time left for the Sharks to choke. You know the ancient Chinese proverb:

The sun will rise, the sun will fall
The tide will come, and the tide will go
The Sharks will make the playoffs, and the Sharks will choke out laughably

They helped get them two rounds further than they should have gotten, but these last two games refs wouldn't make a difference, it's all Blues.

Love the fact that after Coulture and Karlsson ran their mouths and were smart asses after the hand pass the Blues shut both of them down and took their game to the next level. And I’m sorry dparrot but your coach is a whiny baby. Anyway.....


Freaking stoked! Clearly the Blues will be the underdogs but they’ve got something special going this year so I wouldn’t count them out.

12 down 4 to go

Congrats to the Blues, they totally dominated the last three games. Cheering for them in the Cup finals, as I almost always do for teams who’ve never won. Going to be entertaining for sure.

I’m curious as to what the odds were for the Blues to win the Cup as of Jan. 3 and how they compare to Leicester’s English Premier League odds of their title win. Probably not close, but still a hell of a story nonetheless.

They can find any excuse they want, but when it comes to the cup they're straight up freakin jinxed.  I see it happen every year.  I knew after losing game 5 it was gonna take a miracle.  I thought the one final they actually got to they had a chance, but nope.

As noted previously, this is as DTF Centric of a Championship that we could ask for.

Congrats to Kev and Gary. As a quasi-lurker to the NHL threads, your prolonged misery has been noted.

I'd congratulate King and TAC....
but he'll, you've all been spoiled with championships!

Now do some epic bets.


Also of note.... Boston and St. Louis are the only cities/markets that have played for the championship in the four major US sports.

Thanks!

I was chuckling a bit at the announcers last night saying the Blues looked soft early in the 3rd period.  Yes, they were playing too defensive, which was allowing San Jose some good chances, but soft?  That was uncalled for, and then one of the dopes had the nerve to say it reminded him of how SJ had that hard push in Game 4 and that they deserved a better fate in that game.  They deserved a better fate?  Uh, after Game 3, they deserved nothing.  It was so sweet to see them and their d-bag coach go down in flames. :hat :coolio

Not that this is new, but

The Blues and Bruins will (and, in 1970, did) play in the SCF.

On three occasions in the late 50s and early 60s, the Boston Celtics and St. Louis Hawks played in the NBA Finals.

The New England Patriots and St. Louis Rams competed in Super Bowl 36.

The Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals competed in the World Series in 1967 and 2013.

Apparently, no other pair of cities/markets has competed in all four major U.S. sports finals.  Los Angeles and New York have competed in all but the NFL

Gotchya... the more clear statement would be Boston and St. Louis are the only cities/markets that have played EACH OTHER for the championship in the four major US sports.

Without the "each other", I'm thinking 'uh, plenty of cities/markets have played for all four championships

I forgot to include 2004 (which I suppose isn't surprising since the 2004 WS was such an anticlimactic dud after the Sox comeback against the Yankees).
