Have Toronto take a 30 second look at potential game misconduct calls. If that was in place, the Pavelski Error doesn’t happen and the refs don’t botch the missed call last night. I’ve seen offside challenges take 5 minutes. The first Columbus goal during Saturday’s game in Boston took about 5 minutes to get right.

They can take a minute or so to look at a hit like last night or that absurd one they called in San Jose.

The Cup is currently the Bruins' to lose. I don't see Carolina or any of the Western teams beating them. I guess we'll see, but Tuukka looks stout in net and the B's goal scorers are just heating up.


Right now with Rask playing the way he is they should be the favorites. I think Columbus played scared too much in the last series. I'm hoping that the Canes speed can give them the edge especially if the refs don't allow the Bruins to clog up the neutral zone.

I have a sneaky feeling that the winner of tonight's game 7 wins the cup. Basing that off my gut.

Yup, if Pavelski didn't bleed(not from the shot but blood is drama in the NHL) it wasn't a 5 minute. I thought the proper call was a double minor.
Last night, that was a major for sure especially when the league has gone to great lengths saying they want the headshots taken out of the league.
Here we go again, the refs making a difference in a series.

It’s now officially anyone but Boston. World Series in October, Super Bowl in February. If they win a cup in June I’ll lose it.

Seems like it's destiny they'll win the Cup

From your lips to God's ears. I'm with Orange. Anyone but the Bruins. I am counting on Rask to end his Tim Thomas impersonation.

I'm there too. I look at that roster and shake my head they are still there. Binnington is a big reason and if he had played all year and had the same numbers he could have made a run at the Hart trophy.

I think the Canes can give the Bruins fits and I'm hoping Rask comes back to earth as well.

4-0 Bruins and it could be a lot worse.
Carolina getting completely outclassed, especially that last three periods.
Canes PK sucks donkey dick.

If Brind'Amour stays with Mzarek to start the third he is a moron.

Yup, midnight has come for the Cinderellas. A change of venue for the Canes is most welcome.

The Bruins are really playing well all across the entire lineup. Reminds me of a team back in 2016.

Much like Jon Snow was brought back by the Lord of Light to retake his rightful spot on the Iron Throne, the 5 minute major penalty that was not a 5 minute major penalty has given San Jose a chance to finally sit atop the NHL.

San Jose in 6 over Boston.

The Sword That Is Not A Sword is a different fantasy series, but I like your thinking.

I don’t subscribe to The Athletic, but apparently Rossi’s article today contains the following quote:

“we’ve heard that Crosby was not pleased with the Malkin trade speculation. That alone was probably reason enough for what had been a hot topic to cool considerably over the past couple of weeks.”

Ugh. Not that I want to trade Malkin or anything, just hate hearing when stars get to play GM or coach. I don't mind them being consulted before a major deal, it's always a good idea to get input from the guys in the trenches, and that's exactly what someone wearing the "C" should be able to provide, they just shouldn't have final say.

It's always bugged me that Sid allegedly doesn't want to play with Hornqvist and that has prevented them from playing them together.

And while I have nothing to base it on, I still believe Sid had a big part in signing JJ.

Old man complaint-can one of these assholes sing the anthem the way it is supposed to be sung instead of trying to make the song their own.

When the Canes missed the gaping open net in the first few minutes last night I had this sinking feeling they were doomed.

While you can give Rask a ton of credit we should give the rest of the team their due as well.
The Bruins PK is suffocating. Watch how they attack the puck carrier immediately and choke off the passing lanes.

Cassidy is pushing all the right buttons and getting the right combo's out there. He should be getting a lot of credit.

The bottom six for the Bruins have been great throughout the playoffs.
Kampfer fills in for McAvoy in game one and scores the first goal for the Bruins.

And their top line is so good on both ends of the ice.

I said this before but this Bruins team reminds me of the Pens 2016 team.

LOL at the NHL. Blatant hand pass on game winner for SJS.

I still can’t believe this league sometimes...regardless of the arguments for or against replay, how in the hell do all of those striped jerseys miss that obvious hand pass? Just mind boggling. What the fuck are they looking at?

I agree it's silly they can review offsides plays a min before a goal is scored but can't review an illegal action 1 second before its scored
