Thank you Cooch for your hat-trick of goals making up for Burns' hat-trick of errors tonight. Burnsie giveth, Burnsie taketh away.

 

Home ice is back boys. Let's take the next one anyway just to spite them. Go Sharks.

Good win. Arena was like 19,000 drunk baboons. Loudest building I've ever been in. That was awesome. 
 

I disagree that Bob is winning this series single-handedly, but I don't want to say anything I'll regret in a few games. I'll just remind everyone that the Blue Jackets swept the Tampa Bay Lightning so there's a team in front of Bobrovsky who is doing some things.  

 

Brad Marchand is a total coward and should have to do 7 years in federal prison. What a complete and total piece of human :censored:.

Fair. I didn't watch the Tampa series. Boston has had plenty of opportunities to put the biscuit in the basket and they just haven't capitalized. I'm not saying Columbus isn't playing well, they clearly are, they're just not wowing me - Bob however, is. I'd give more credit to them for shutting down the top line, but Toronto did the same thing, these guys are just in a funk (more on that below). Like I said in my previous post, the B's are beating themselves. Unforced penalties leading to goals, unforced errors leading to goals. They're making bad decisions and have been since Game 1 of the playoffs, the only reason they got out of that round was the Leafs inability to get over the mental hurdle. There is no history with Columbus, no mental hurdle to get over, they don't care, they're just going out and playing - and it's working.

 

Brad Marchand is a clown. Anyone who says otherwise is an a**hole. This guy's talent is through the roof, but he loves being that pest to levels that frustrate even the most jaded Bruins fan. Trust me, I can't stand the guy and don't want him on this team but sadly I'm forced to root for his success. 

 

David Pastrnak. Huh. He's either playing hurt or is softer than a marshmallow in the desert. He can't skate, he can't pass, he can't think. He's afraid of contact all of a sudden, there has to be something wrong with him, he can't be Joe Thornton 2.0.

The Columbus Blue Jackets are halfway to The Stanley Cup Final. Amazing...

Last time I checked, halfway was 8 wins. Still, go Lumbus!

(Not sure if you meant this as a rah-rah “we don’t care about the Final only the Cup” post, just in case it wasn’t, here you go)

 

Halfway to the Final would be 12 wins, aka 3 series. They’ve got 6 wins, aka 1.5 series. Halfway to the Cup itself would be 16 wins, aka 4 series.

I said halfway to the Stanley Cup Final. Not halfway to winning the Stanley Cup.

He should have been suspended.

What did he do, I was only halfway paying attention last night, I know about the high stick where he basically punched a guy while holding his stick, and he possibly dived on a trip, though the trip was pretty blatant.

Ok. Clearly I misinterpreted your meaning, and therefore my math was off. But yeah, CBJ all the way since I don't have a dog in this race.
