When was the last time a team clinched the championship at Home? 

Not just NHL, but NBA & MLB too. 

 

Feels like it's been a while.

I think it was the Kings winning the Stanley Cup in Los Angeles back in 2014.

I think it was the Warriors in 2017 beating the Cavs in game 5 at Oracle 

 

This is pretty disappointing for me, it’s been a bit since I watched a whole postseason just to be let down, but going out like that, is just bad. That was some terrible hockey right there. 

 

Also, listening to Coldplay’s “Fix You” makes me feel better and depressed at the same time.

Congrats to the Blues! Now for the real question: What on earth will @Bucfan56 turn his hatred towards next?!?

 

Kevin Durant's Achilles.

The Caps last year and the Blues this year. That's pretty neat.

I guess it's poetic. The league's two most illustrious Legacies of Failure destroyed in back to back years (last year Washington, this year St. Louis).


There's a real chance the trend could continue next year. Literally over a third (count 'em, 11) of the league's franchises have never won the Cup.

Way to go Blues! 

 

Congrats to the fans from the Lou on here. You guys have always been pretty cool. (especially @Mockba who has taken a good amount of my :censored: lately 😂 ). Hope they enjoy this one a LOT. Except for for STL Fanatic and McCall. They both kinda sucked. 

 

Always awesome to see Boston NOT win something. Go kick rocks, Boston. 

 

 

 

 

 

This now OFFICIALLY makes the Sharks the biggest joke of a franchise in the West, which they absolutely deserve and need to wear permanently on their sweaters. You kick rocks too, Sharks.

The question is, who is the 2020 version of the 2019 Blues?

Barring something stupid in the offseason, I'd say the Sharks, Jets, Jackets, Predators, Knights, and Coyotes have a real shot at the playoffs. And I'd put them in that order of likelihood.

Here's the scene in Downtown St Louis:

First of all, congratulations to the Blues and their fans on here. I can't think of any Blues diehards here off the top of my head or else I'd tag ya, so enjoy the championship! Hell of a story from January to today. Just please don't burn down Seoul Taco on Delmar in your celebration. I love that place. I need that place.

 

And of course, congratulations to the 99% here who could not stomach another Boston victory. Having the top three sports teams in your city (Celtics, ya'll know you're 4th and probably 5th behind the Revolution forchristsake) go to championships within like six months of each other is absurd and winning two of them means I have nothing to complain about; plus, I didn't even think the Bruins would get by the Maple Leafs so anything after the first round was just gravy.

 

I wish the Bruins made more of a game out of it though. I don't think the Blues outplayed the Bruins, per say, but rather the Bruins had just the biggest case of "aw, shucks" I've ever seen whenever they made a mistake. The defense, however, played outstanding. Rask stepped up in a HUGE way this postseason and the entire defensive core was absolutely phenomenal. Krug, Chara, Carlo, are the reasons this team got where they got. It's a shame that the league sucks at marketing its players correctly and relies on goalies or OFFENSE!!!!!! in terms of popularity, because some of those guys should have been in Conn Smythe conversations had the Bruins squeaked out the victory here tonight. Also, very scary to think that the Bruins completely wasted three consecutive first round picks in a stacked 2015 draft...but still made it this far. (Yes, I am counting Jake DeBrusk as a waste, don't @ me. Bruins fans only love the concept of Jake DeBrusk and not the actual player.)

 

I'm over Brad Marchand. His antics are old, tired, and if you're not scoring while being a pest then you're just Zac Rinaldo and nobody should aspire to be Zac Rinaldo. Not even Zac Rinaldo.

 

Oh well. Bruins have a young team; hopefully they'll be back.

If it spares us a "I'm never watching this sport until [Boston team] stops winning!!" only to be followed by a renewed interest four months later, then I'd say it's fair. :)

This would've been really painful for St. Louis if they lost this, after having that golden opportunity at home. Nice to see the ending result didn't suck.

 

Go crazy, Blues fans. It's the right time to do so.
