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.

I dunno... I think Binnington over-played the shooter side on that 1st goal (the 2-1).  Both of Meir's goals were unstoppable (killer move; bad luck) - though, on the 3rd with that awesome deke, looks like Parayako could've hustled a little more to put some pressure on Meir's stick?  Pavelski's 5-3 pp goal ... yeah, no chance there either.

Man that Bruins PP is lethal - 33% for the playoffs.

Well, the 'Canes were down 2-0 to the Caps and came back.  Hoping they can replicate that feat, though not optimistic.  The Bruins look like they are chugging along quite nicely.

Two soft goals by Binnington, who is apparently turning into a pumpkin.

Those are both on our dumbass captain.  That awful turnover on the 1st goal completely changed the game.

Make no mistake, Logan Couture is filthy, but Binnington has to have those. And yes, Pietrangelo looked a little soft too.

I must've shut the TV off right before the Blues scored their 3rd goal. Good for them for steadying the ship and getting the win. I still feel like they have the advantage in goal.

Sure they do, but the Sharks have a more explosive offence. The Blues only go as far as their D and Binnington take them. That Blues PP was dreadful.

The Bruins should just decline the next penalty. WTF!

This applies to the Blues now. 3 shorties they've given up these playoffs.

Our power play is wretched. I dont know why Perron is out there. When hes on hes on.....but man, he is pitiful right now. So is #27. Im no longer calling him by his name.....hes just #27. I could give a  :censored less about how many minutes he eats up or how good he used to be.....hes now just an above average D man who insists on turning the puck over 5 times a game....of which all lead to quality scoring chances. I declare by all things holy if the Blues re-sign him after next season Ill gouge my eyes out and spray expanding insulating foam into my ear canal so I cannot see him play or hear his name.

Robert Thomas should take Perrons spot on the #1 unit.....Paryako should take #27s.

I hope the Sharks win the Stanley Cup for Joe Thornton. He deserves it.

I guess Perron deserved that blind side, cheap shot elbow to the head a few years back also? Honestly, Joe Thornton certainly deserves something but its nit his name etched on the Cup.

I wouldn't have a problem with Thornton getting a Cup but for:
A. It'd be against the Bruins, and
B. that would mean Eric Karlsson gets one too.

Comments like this always bug me.  Neither Thornton nor any other athlete "deserves" anything other than what he earns.  If his team doesn't win the cup, then he didn't deserve it.  It's as simple as that.  Plus, Thornton has been nothing but a choke artist since he joined the Sharts.  One of only four men in NHL history (and only five in North American sports history) to captain a team to a series loss after having a 3-0 lead.

I get where you're coming from, but there is a flip side, perhaps best shown by a guy like Shane Doan.

Great player who stayed loyal to a team in a non-traditional market, and despite never been given a lot to work with worked his ass off trying to get the Coyotes a cup. You can't say he personally didn't work to a level of a player who could certainly have won a cup, and if anything it was his dedication and loyalty to his team (a good trait) that ultimately cost him a chance.

I know Jeter is the one outside of hockey, and Ovechkin is one of the guys from the NHL, but who were the other two?

I see where you're coming from with respect to Doan.  I hated him as an opponent, but that's because he always played my team tough.  The loyalty thing is commendable, and it's a personal choice.  The same can be said for Tony Gwynn.  Ultimately, though, and despite all the good things associated with them, neither was good enough to lead an otherwise unremarkable team to a championship.  In fact, outside of 2012, the Coyotes have never even won a playoff series.  Gwynn's Padres at least made it to the World Series twice (although they only made the playoffs one other time in Gwynn's career).

The other guy that I thought about was Ray Borque.  Before winning in Colorado, did Borque "deserve" a Cup?

I know Jeter is the one outside of hockey, and Ovechkin is one of the guys from the NHL, but who were the other two?

In addition to Jeter:

1. Eddie Goodfellow, captain of the 1941-42 Detroit Red Wings (blew 3-0 lead over Toronto in Stanley Cup Final)
2. Ron Schock, captain of the 1974-75 Pittsburgh Penguins (blew 3-0 lead over NYI in quarter-finals)
3. Zdeno Chara, captain of the 2009-10 Boston Bruins (blew 3-0 lead over Philadelphia in conference semi-finals)
4. Joe Thornton, captain of the 2013-14 San Jose Sharks (blew 3-0 lead over LA in conference quarter-finals)

Ovechkin's Capitals blew 3-1 series leads in 2015 (against NYR) and in 2010 (against Montreal), but they never blew a 3-0 lead.  In 2015, they were up 1-0, but the Rangers won game 2.  In 2010, they dropped game 1 before winning the next 3 and then dropping the final 3.

Please Blues, win your series, I don't want to root for the damned Sharks.

Last game was definitely a nail in the coffin for the Canes, no way they are pulling a Flyers and coming back in 7. Damn that was a good series. :D

That said, I get that Williams is the captain, the veteran, and wants to light a fire, but he's got to realize that Marchand has seasons of experience being an asshole and he's not going to magically transform into that role now. His performance in that game will be a dark spot on an otherwise amazing career.
