And now a bunch of spoiled brats in Boston are gonna get their third championship in 8 months. Sports are awful. 

 

I suddenly have a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach about the Blues not losing in 6 last night.

The Sharks are ABSOLUTELY losing game 7. 5-0. 

 

I HATE this stupid hockey team.

Damn was really hoping the Sharks could pull this one and get at least one extra day of rest before another tough series but of course life doesn’t work that way. Always got to make things just a little bit more difficult.

 

Will have thoughts in the morning but for now, I’m cautiously optimistic about Game 7.

The Sharks looked stronger than the Avs. But now I'm losing faith.

 

Tonight's loss reminded me that the only reason they're in the second round at all is because Vegas choked, blew a late 3 goal lead on 5 minute major, caused by a dumb and questionable penalty.

 

Sharks gonna Shark.

Was Traveling this weekend, But I was able to get glimpses of games 5 & 6. 

 

Great series by Columbus! Very easily could have went their way, but once Boston's top guys started to show up (and Rask playing like the Goalie he should be) BJ's really had no answer.

Best condolence I can give BJ fans is that no one will remember their loss to the Bruins, but no one will ever forget how they swept Tampa. 

As for Carolina, that should be an interesting series. Nothing about their success makes sense to me. 

 

Glad to see Colorado force a game 7, I think San Jose would be the toughest matchup for Boston if they make the Finals. I'm hoping for a Bruins - Stars series, but after Sunday, doesn't look like Dallas will even make Their Conference Finals.

Just play on loop the scene in JAWS where Chief Brody blows up the shark. The Sharks playoff existence in a nutshell.

Certainly nervous for this series with Boston. They're just flat out more talented and more experienced than we are. However, I did say the same thing about the Caps and we pulled that series out. I'll be on the edge of my seat for sure.

I think Carolina got lucky the series between Boston and Columbus didn't go the distance, so they have a little less time to accrue rust.

Well I’ll be damned. Tuukka Rask stole a series.

The world is ending. Only explanation.

And what a...weird...series it was. I feel like the Jackets played considerably better than the Bruins.

You think so? I thought Boston shut them down pretty well, they were content on giving them that outside rush - but other than that I didn't see much offensively from Columbus that really could've stole the show. If they weren't playing with their heads up their butts in the first 3 games of the series I think it honestly could've been over in 4 or 5.

As for McAvoy, that hit has a lot to unpack. I’m obviously biased but I don’t believe it was a dirty hit.

At first I thought 5/10 cya in a few games. The more I watched it he makes contact with the chest first. Was it dirty? I don't think so. Anderson was a douche all series, but I can't imagine McAvoy wanted to knock him and himself out of the series. It ended up being uglier than it should've been, and it definitely ended high, but again I don't think it was intentionally a cheap shot. With the way this league works, since he came back, I don't see a suspension forthcoming. Glad Anderson is okay and they seemed to laugh it off in the handshake line. Either way, can't be taking chances like that.

I’m starting to think the whole not starting Tuukka in 79 of 82 games in the regular season thing might have been a good idea!

 

Just imagine what his trade value will be if the Bruins can come home with the Cup!

McAvoy suspended for Game 1.

Tough loss for The Bruins. 

 

Personally I don't think it was a dirty hurt (or done with intent) but I've seen the NHL punish for much less.

Don’t. Just don’t. It’s not fair to anybody.

Like I said earlier, I didn’t see a suspension coming because Anderson came back. I also can’t argue against a suspension, so it is what it is.
