I'd rather see Blues in 6 :P, that way we get the double win of the Blue winning it at home and the joy of Gloria. ;)

I get that.  I'd like to see the B's win at home myself.  In 2011 it was in Vancouver but beggars can;t be choosers here.

I was just checking things out trying to figure out why the NBA has 2 day breaks between every game, and then see that the NHL is giving an additional travel day to the breaks between games 2-3, and game 5 onwards.  WTH??  I get it when the teams are traveling 3 time zones, but c'mon... St.L is in CT ffs.

I miss the good ole days when the first round games were played on back-to-back nights, teams played 4 games in 5 nights, and the Cup was awarded BEFORE Memorial Day.

Well being that I'm obviously wanting and hoping for the Blues to win....and believe they will as the Bruins have yet to play a team like the Blues.....my 'prediction' is this:

Blues in 6

Win Game 1
Lose Game 2
Win Games 3 & 4
Lose Game 5
Win at home in Game 6

I'm hoping for the Game 1 win but honestly think they split in Boston. With how jacked up this city is right now I am thinking that the Blues will win all of their home games.

Here's to hoping for a Cup

Blues home had a high percentage of being 6-4 until a little hand pass miss. Wouldnt have been an automatic W for the Blues but after a rough start at home in the playoffs theyve cranked it up at home.

Like most others....I think most of the games will be close with one or two plays deciding them.

I'm really excited for this matchup. I'm a closet Blues fan and I look forward to the Bruins games against them each year. They are usually 2 of the best games each year.

Yeah, the Bruins outplayed them badly in the 2nd period already. No need to give them gift PP's (which the last two were).

Yup.  1st 2 were calls I hate to see. As Kev said, the last 2 are on the Blues. They need to reign in the emotions.  Tall task in the biggest series there is.

Tough not to play well when momentum is handed to you. Whatevs. Stay out of the box and win the third....steal the game.

Might as well stop watching now.  The Blues are getting outplayed and the officiating is badly lopsided.

Bruins played good. But the Blues had one legit penalty all game. Some wretched officiating. Was cool to see Chara get the free pass on chopping Bozaks stick in two on the penalty kill...should have been 1:30 of a 5 on 3. Anyway.

I actually looked up who the officials were to see if they were the same ones as Game 3 against San Jose.  Hard to believe the league has this many officials with vision issues.

The Thomas hook in the first was a cheesy call, and the missed slashing the stick was unfortunate, the bolded part was your main issue tonight.

But the Blues guy tackled Krug in front of the B's net and that wasn't called.

The Sundquist cross check and the Blais interference were legit, man.

would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

I personally would like them to let that go.  But the league is different these days.

Well, losing your balance and falling into Krejci's elbow gets your team a power play..?

The only bad thing about the Bruins winning for Boston fans is that they'll be hungover for their Klan meetings tomorrow. How can they expect to get anything done?!?

To many egregious mistakes made on the field, handing the enemy the momentum. We have fallen back to the city limits, we must be more disciplined before engaging such a well organized militia.

I think you guys are way too quick to blame the refs. I mean, I really didn't want to get into it tonight, but I could point to missed calls the other way. I mean, if you guys think the refs cost the Blues the game, then apparently I was watching a different game.


I may stay out of this thread for the rest of this series.

He basically trolls fans of Tom Brady and Steph Curry, both of whom he seems to hate.  I think he is from Philly, so there ya go. :lol :lol
