Sharks vs Blues. Two of my favorite teams in the West and the entire league. Hopefully one of these teams can finally bring their fan base the joy of winning a championship. I can’t even stomach the idea of Boston winning three out of four championships over the course of a year.

I could've typed this word for word.  I've been a quasi-Sharks fan since they got the franchise.  I decided that I'd be a fan from the get-go, and not be a band-wagon jumper just when they got good.  Every year, I'm (at the very least) casually rooting for them, but not this serious.  Blues all the way.  But more importantly, A.B.B.  Anyone. But. Boston.  God I hate all of their franchises.  When the fuck did Marchand think he was Belichick?  I don't think I hate any player as much as I hate him - because of his personality.  I respect the hell out of his talent and skills, but man, what a Grade-A douche that guy is.

Bask in the suckitude of the Celtics.

I'm basking hard this morning.

Not to talk basketball on a hockey thread but the C's are unlikable right now.  The piss poor attitudes from the players are the opposite of what the B's players bring.

Don't get me wrong ... I'd love to have his talent, and in-game grit on 'my' team.  But I'd hate to have his personality - and the cheap shit he does like the recent punch in the back of the head, or the face-licking.  Makes me want to reach thru the screen and cunt-punch him.

I don't care which wins the cup, but given these finals I know exactly who I'm rooting for this round, go Canes and Blues.

Currently 3 for 12, far and away the worst I've ever done in picking playoff series.

In spite of what I'm hoping for, my official picks are for the Blues and Bruins.

Oh I get it.  He even plays into the bad guy role as well.  Waving at fans when they boo him.  he likes it.

The Sharks ‘might’ win two games this series. They haven’t played a team as deep as the Blues yet that can roll four lines on you....four tough lines.

Not saying the Sharks are a push over....but I’ve watched a lot of their games this post season in anticipation of playing them. Should the Blues just continue playing how they’ve been playing it’ll be ok in my mind.

I want Carolina to win the series to further piss off Don Cherry and because I don't want to ever see Marchand hoist a cup again

Really want St. Louis to win because I love the fact that in January, it was draft lottery talk, now we're talking about Conference Finals and hopefully cup finals. Love the story there.

So speaking of that, I went to pour a beer for the game. For game 4 of the Columbus series, when Backes went in the lineup, I started wearing my Backes shirt and I switched beer mugs.
Anyway, I couldn't find my mug, but then it occurred to me that the dishwasher was running. I asked my wife if my "mug" was in the dishwasher. My wife told me she was cleaning it for the next round.


Cleaning it for the next round?? :omg:

WTF??

My superstitions got the best of me during Double OT with Blues & Stars. I remembered the horror of seeing Yzerman score on the Blues' last Game 7 Double OT, and realized that when the Blues defeated the Blackhawks on Game 7 a few years ago, I was listened to the radio. And so I suddenly turned the TV off and listened to the game instead, and just a few minutes later, Maroon scored :)  Let's go Blues! Only eight more glorious Glorias to go--I don't think I'll ever get sick of that tune.
I am also less nervous about the Sharks than the Stars, but then again, it seems that the Sharks are experiencing divine intervention with all these fluky Game 7 calls going their way. That's why we need to get eliminate them fast!

Kaapo Kakko has scored 5 goals in 2 games, two of them empty-netters. The other three were basically like you want to see all of them, this kid is really special.

Based on the pre-game chatter by NBC, we Blues fans should be honored that our team gets the distinction of being there while the Sharks get crowned.  The slurping of the Sharks is already at nauseating levels.

Based on the lackluster effort the Blues are putting forth in this game....someone should remind them that they haven’t won anything yet. Ugly effort going on. Itd be one thing if San Jose were just playing out of their minds but that’s not the case here. Just horrid and sluggish play from the Blues.

Wasn’t even so much Binnington. They all played like butt. You can’t give a team either the talent SJ has 20 freaking turnovers. Like....unforced....wasn’t even a heavy forecheck or pressure....just really bad plays.  Oh well.

Agreed.  The 3rd goal he probably should have stopped (although it looked like he might have gotten screened), but he had no chance on the first two goals, the 4th goal was a spectacular individual play by the goal scorer (cannot remember who, but I have seen Tarasenko score goals like that before), and the 5th goal was just bad luck (Shark threw the pick towards the front of the net and it hit Dunn's skate and ricocheted past him before he could blink.
