I don't really care who wins, Blues is a better story for their fans but they have some shits on their team, just as the Bruins have in Marchand.
As to the hockey, the Bruins are slightly better on paper and should win. When I'm not sure about on ice talent disparities I always go with goaltending and Rask has been incredible this post season.
Hoping the Blues take it. Don't want Boston to have more recent Cups than us.
What the heck, MoJo is playing better than I’ve ever seen him. All-star caliber.
Marcus passes up a Grade A shooting opportunity - drink!
As a caps and blues fan, I just don’t believe mojo and backes will have their names on the cup. That just can’t be a thing....
We lost game one last year, not counting the blues out. But they got dominated for 50 minutes last night. Need better
I think if the Blues played better after Boston tied it at 2-2 I would feel more confident in St Louis, but they looked awful in the 2nd half of last night’s game. Too many penalties and dumb turnovers. You would think Berube would have warned his players about Boston’s deadly power play...
Their PP didn’t look that great IMO, but the stupid penalties sure didn’t help. What worried me was how dangerous the bruins were 5v5. Even down 0-2 I thought Boston was the more dangerous team. Need better all around from StLouis and maybe a steal or two from binnington.
People can say what they want about Marchand but I'd take him on the Caps any day of the week.
Marchand is pest, but what makes him even worse is that he can play. It makes you hate him even more. Of course its one of the reasons I love watching Wilson get better.
Speak for yourself...
Gross... he licks people's faces during game play. No f***ing way.
He's one of the best LWs in the game, has scored 30+ goals 4 straight years, has seen his point total increase from 61 to 85 to 85 to 100 over that same time span, is a pain in the ass to play against, and has a beautiful contract. He's also, by all accounts, a pretty decent guy off the ice and quite involved in the Boston community. So, yeah, I'd welcome him with open arms.
Face-licking and being a pest is part of his game and while other people may hate it I think it's part of what makes him so effective.
A little bit too on-brand for Boston sports if you ask me!
Being a pest is one thing, and a valuable one at that, but he has no respect for the game or his opponents, IMO.
Agree to disagree but I respect your opinion.
Nah, face-licking, cheap shots, and flopping around diving, definitely cheapen the integrity of this sport.
This is the same dbag who jumped Eller, elbowed mojo, etc etc. I honestly don't know how he has a full mouth of teeth.
More like Recycle Binnington so far.
