Ultimately, I don’t think we ever see a losing player take home the MVP in a major sport again unless it’s a completely unexpected story like Giguere carrying that team. Rask has already shown an ability to get his team to this point, so they won’t give it to him. Basically, the LeBron paradox

It's only a matter of time before it happens again, because the NHL makes the writers vote before the end of the game. Let's say the game tonight is 1-1 after the 2nd... I could definitely see Rask getting the Conn Smythe in that vote and then the Blues winning in the 3rd or OT. It might take 100 years, but of course an NHL plan has some kind of weird uncertainty built into it.

 

(Except the part about the Blues winning)

Legendary line change by Brad Marchand there.

What a bunch of :censored:ing choke artist hacks. I wouldn't be sad to never see Marchand or Krug in a Bruins uniform again.

Binnington is having the game of his life at the best possible time.

 

But he can't score the goals too. The Blues needs to keep this up for another full 40 minutes.

Unless it went all the way through, I'm pretty sure Ortiz stopped his shot.

Is anyone else trying to watch the game on Hulu Live? My stream is hot garbage.

The Bruins have nothing to show for the first period despite spending the overwhelming majority of it in the St. Louis end, Binnington has been a solid brick wall, and now the Blues are hounding them all over the ice and always seem to have a man advantage no matter where the puck is. This is not good.

My stream is fine but I've been having a lot of trouble lately with Hulu.

Seems like the Blues are playing late in the 2nd as if it were late in the 3rd. They seem content to just try to clear and not go on the attack.

Krug?! Really? The entire defense is the reason the Bruins came this far.

VW's Stanley Cup commercial is actually pretty cool.

Blues are going to give up a totally fluke goal, panic, and the floodgates are going to open. 

 

Bruins 8-2.

Don't write the Blues off just yet. I thought their defense was pretty good.
