How awesome was the B's vs. Pens last night? Just what the doctor ordered :D GO Bs GO!Glad Cooke got tossed right away after he stepped over the line (not sure that would have happened in the Ottawa series).Sid the bib challenging Chara, while hiding behind the ref. Good on Chara for not biting because it was a 1-goal game at that point. But I'm sure he was temped in knocking the rest of Sid's teeth out.
My prediction: Boston in 5, Bylsma fired.
Pukes aren't nearly as good when the rules are the same for both teams. To bad the Sens weren't given the same opportunity. Glad the Hawks beat the sleeping pills that are referred to as the Kings.
Rask was amazing too--I'm not counting the Pukes out that easily. I'm still stunned that the Leafs should have taken the Bruins out, the Pukes will come back
B's get a lot more respect from refs than the sens do and they are big enough to get to the net. Pens are still dangerous but if they let the B's get in their heads with the rough stuff, they can be beaten.
Craig Simpson on CBC last night said he was surprised Crosby was yapping at the refs, says he normally doesn't do that. I almost spilled my beer on that one.
Simpson should go see his doctor. Memory loss is a serious symptom!Crosby might not get many more changes to use his yap, after Chara shuts it for him.I also like the fact that Boston hates Cooke and he's not suspended so the Boston faithful can have some fun with him :)Where's Iginla been? Is any team going to offer him a contract after his playoff performance so far?
Agree with you Senior. Glad the Hawks are taking the boots to the Kings.
Agree with the Kings vs. Chicago game. When they played yesterday I was worried I'd have to watch 90 minutes of the trap but thank god Chicago got their act together.
Pittsburgh was a disgrace yesterday... and now Sidney whining to the press all day today. Stay classy Penguins.
Duthie on TSN tonight said that maybe the Globetrotter-style rout of the Sens made the Penguins over-confident.
... I think the truth is a little more hard to bear. Jeremy Jacobs has more pull to keep the refs out of it than Eugene Melnyk did ... no referee is going to screw with Jacob's team like they did the Sens.
Kings in 7, Bruins in 4
sad but true u guys who bring up the respect the refs show the B's over the Sens. 4-1 B's in this game, I didn't see this coming but the Goalie position in Pitts seems to suck when not playing the Sens.
B's are thrashing the Pens and the refs are letting them do it. That makes a bit of a difference.
... mmmmm ... tastes like chicken ...
I am starting to like the Little Ball of Hate. I hope Conacher can be somewhat as effective as that!
TJ, Voukun sucked agains the Sens too; they just did a poor job of getting to the rebounds or exposing him with quicker play.
Marchand is the worst kind of rat cuz he can back up his rat-ness with goals. that drives you even more crazy. he is damn effective though.
Who'd have thunk I'd be cheering for the B's one day? And this hard too?Bears > Penguins
Not so much cheering for Bruins as cheering against the pukes. However will be cheering for Hawks in finals.
Had me laughing out loud.
that game 3 was virtually no rules between Pens and B's. What if it had been that way vs sens? probably still wouldn't have won but, ......
so has anyone asked Sid if it's feasible that the Penguins can come back and win four in a row?
Omg that reminds me when the league fined Alfie because he implied that the difference (during their rookie year) between Sid and Ovie was that one of them 'cried a lot'. He didn't say which one and the league fined him for slandering Crosby... lol
Thought game 3 would be a good one to watch. Man was I right. From the Chicago series, I only watched highlights on NHL.com. I had the NBC feed and the Chicago highlights were from the CBC. And even from that... Wow Bob Cole is bad. Doc Emrick >> Bob Cole
I was in Sports Chek to today. Was looking at the hockey jerseys and the sales guy walks up and asks me if I need any help. I picked up a Crosby jersey and asked him if it came with a bib. He just kind of looked at me kinda weird. Guess he's not a big hockey fan.
at the end of this Pukes v Bruins game Malkin pulled a Condra
Wow......Shawn Thornton had more points in the BOS-PIT series than Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Iginla and Letang......combined.
I don't think I'm going to enjoy facing Boston 8 times next season, but certainly enjoyed watching them dismantle the myth that the Penguins are a "team of destiny". 1 Cup in four years of being that team. Fallout? I don't see Shero going anywhere, but I wouldn't be surprised if Bylsma is let go and added to the re-tread list of coaches looking for work.
bylsma wasn't the problem. rask was. he was awesome. plus, bruins mauled them. i guess jacobs still as more clout than mario.
