Boston Triple alive and well. Kinda pissed at the Cs for blowing the Boston Slam

5 goals in 4 game.  Pretty much sums it up.  What pisses me off was Rask was my fantasy goalie and out played by Halak and played less than 50 games.  Smart move by B's.  Paying off now.

The difference was Kyrie was the leader of that team.

I’m glad John Ferguson liked  Justin Pogge better than Tukka

Good season for Carolina. Congratulations.

Not much to say about the Bruins. They played well this series. That first game was the back-breaker for Carolina. They weren't really in the series after that.

When you go to hell, I hope the Flyers series when you were up 3-0 is played on a loop for eternity. 😉

They didn't kill the pentalites game one or all series.  Missed open nets first period game 3.  Their margin for error was not high enough to do that.  Even if they took 1 and 3, cant see them winning 4 in the series in hindsight.  Too deep, too talented and Rask.

Yeah, I think I can set aside tepid fandom and say that these were the causes. Depth, Rask, and all the bounces seemed to go Boston's way somehow.

@IC FBGCav Thanks for being a great sport this whole series.

And big ups to the 'Canes. Hope this is just the start of good things for them with the young core and Brind'Amour behind the bench. And that the fan support continues as well.

Oh, and pretzels. Never forget the pretzels.

Blues’ controversial loss on hand pass hits home for Martin St. Louis and 1996 Vermont Catamounts

Yep, turns out I'm still not over it. 

That picture of Marty is unbelievable - with the added bonus if you look closely at the ice in front of the goal, you can see the giant puddles of standing water that slowed the Cats' attack.

One way to potentially fix these bad non-calls is to have a coaches challenge for 1 play every game regardless of the reviewability of a play. If the coach says to check for the hand pass for example, the refs have to check with Toronto.  Simple as that.  The "that play is not reviewable" would be overruled by a coach.  It is simply inexcusable that 4 refs are missing calls that affect goals in a playoff game where goals are usually at a premium.

New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and No. CT are definitely celebrating a bit. 

As far as the Twitter thing goes, I'd be tempted to slap someone, too, if they'd just beat my team by an aggregate 17-5 goals and a 4-0 sweep. That'll make anybody sore.

I’m being a little unfair to Boston fans.  In my experience with visiting fans, Penguins fans are even worse

Why is a hand pass illegal? This isnt soccer

I don’t really see a downside to making handpasses legal.  It’s one of the more annoying stoppages in play

good point.

Callahan and Turris also look like clear salary dumps they would have to pay people to take off their hands.

I can see lots of grey area when players sort of catch it and toss it to a teammate. Yes it happens today in the Dzone but I don't think we want more referee discretion involved in the offensive zone.

Oops. I cannot forget the fine folks in Maine. My uncle lives there, actually.

I would think Vermont has Habs fans, too. Montreal is hop and skip away, IIRC. People talk of the clubbing scene often.

Noticed that too. I grew up going to Pirates games, Mainers are massive Bruins fans

Pretty close to 50/50 in Vermont from my experience.

Sharks playing with fire so far.  They'll be lucky to get to intermission only down 1 based on early returns.
