WEll, since every team I have been rooting for is getting eliminated, I will try reverse psychology on myself. I will now root for the Blues and the Bruins and hope it works out the way the rest of the playoffs have.

While Carolina has dominated, the Bruins are a buzzsaw right now. The experience and talent on that team......there will be no sweep.

St Louis is playing really well at the moment for a team that really lacks a superstar IMO. Sharks are full of grizzled vets. Should be a good, physical series.

Bruins up 2-0 on the Hurricanes

Blues and Stars tied 1-1

your reversal theory does not look like it is working for you

DAMN!!!!! I really don't see anyone beating the Bruins. I am not really anti-Bruin, but Carolina would be a great story.

Rask is playing some great hockey right now and the Bruins and a pretty deep team.

While I am glad the Sharks won, the refs definitely missed the hand pass and the play should have been whistled dead. Unbelievable that 4 refs missed it. The only person that caught it was the Blues goalie.

and the Blues are certainly not happy :

Blues incensed after no-call in OT loss to Sharks

Quote:
ST. LOUIS -- The four officials huddled by the penalty box. Most of the San Jose Sharks had retreated to the dressing room, believing that Erik Karlsson's goal at 5:23 of overtime had given them a Game 3 win and a 2-1 series lead in the Western Conference finals. None of the St. Louis Blues had left the bench or the ice, believing there was absolutely no chance these officials could have missed the hand pass by the Sharks' Timo Meier that led to that goal.

But they did.

All four of them missed it, marking another blown call in a postseason that has been defined by refereeing controversies and officiating errors. Since the National Hockey League's video review process doesn't include hand passes that lead to goals, the Sharks were victorious. And the Blues were irate.

"I really didn't get an explanation other than, I guess, there's a different set of rules for two different teams, so I'm sure they'll lose some sleep tonight after looking at it," St. Louis captain Alex Pietrangelo said after the Blues' 5-4 loss to San Jose that left them standing on the bench dumbfounded -- at least the ones who weren't on the ice smashing their sticks in anger.


to me it was a blatant hand pass which could be clearly seen by everyone but this idiot officiating crew

and then to add to the mess, the big brother group overseeing replay had this to say had this to contribute to this story :

Quote:
Could the War Room in Toronto have stepped in on a critical goal such as this?

"The way the rules are written, any chance there is to review, everything is reviewed that's reviewable," Whitmore said. "But as the rules currently stand, the play is non-reviewable."


so an obvious error leading to a game winning goal in overtime in a playoff game cannot be reviewed? seems like the same shit in the NFL playoffs with the Saints/Rams bullshit non-call

so why bother having replay if it cannot help on obviously incorrect game changing mistakes?

Pietrangelo had his fuck ups so he should probably keep his yapper shut. He iced the puck on 2 separate occasions with less than 2 minutes to play. Both giving the Sharks a face off in their offensive zone. The second faceoff leading to the tying score. The Blues couldn't hit an open net. Their failures in regulation cannot be overlooked either. NHL needs to go to all goals being reviewable. It would not slow down the game at all. Obvious goals could be looked at and confirmed within seconds. An official could have that job, no need going to Toronto for that.

I love it though, it was the Blues!!

The way the Bruins are playing, I don't see anyone beating them. They are on fire right now and Tuuka is in the zone. If Blues v Sharks goes 7, Bruins will be well rest for the Cup finals.

finals are set - Blues vs Bruins

Blues advance to Stanley Cup Final after Game 6 blowout win over Sharks

Quote:
The St. Louis Blues are off to the Stanley Cup Final after a 5-1, Game 6 win over the San Jose Sharks to win the Western Conference finals.

St. Louis will be making its first Stanley Cup Final since 1970 -- a tremendous achievement for a team that began the calendar year dead-last in the NHL in standings points.

For the first time this postseason, the San Jose Sharks avoided a Game 7. Unfortunately for them, that's because their season is now over.

The Sharks entered Tuesday's Game 6 of the Western Conference finals in a dire situation. Not only had they lost two straight games to fall into a 3-2 series hole heading back to St. Louis, but they also suffered some key losses to their lineup with injuries to Erik Karlsson, Tomas Hertl and Joe Pavelski.

They needed a tremendously gutsy effort to defeat a red-hot Blues team in Game 6 and extend their season, but they couldn't pull it off. Instead, it was the Blues punching their ticket to the Stanley Cup Final.


this should be an entertaining matchup

I pick Blues in 7

I hope not Boris. Can't stand the Blues or their fans (at least the ones I know). It should be a good series. Both goalies are on their games. Both teams D have been pretty much dominant. I would like to think the Bruins have the better overall squad and that will take them to the Cup. I sure hope to hell it does.

So every team I rooted for got knocked out. I cannot do the reverse psychology shit and root for the Blues. I will be a full on Bruin fan for the next 2 weeks. After that, eff 'em.
