    The refs sucked and likely Bruins win game 4

    Not getting a near week off to reset by beating Toronto in 5 cost them something- how much who knows

    But that’s what the playoffs are all about

    I’m still going

    2019 they are in Conference Finals

    2020 the win the Cup

    Exactly, frankly I was expecting more important injuries . Hal Gil was on TSN690 today and he said it makes him laugh every time when players start listing their injuries. He says every player who goes through the PO's is dealing with something , no different for any other team as per him. I guess he would know better than me.https://www.tsn.ca/radio/montreal-690/gill-subban-underrated-on-defense-1.1080873

    Ha ha

    I could not survive the 7th game day leading up to the game

    I still think the wait June 15 2011 from 6 am when I woke up till it started May be as toughest/longest 14 hour as I ever endured

    Of course Seattle will be led by 43 goal scorer Sean Kuraly

    Lindell - McAvoy
    Krug- Carlo
    Grzelcyk- Miller


    Krejci will be on the team but Studnicka close and JFK & Frederic will move up a rung

    Deal with Dallas reunites Heinen with former coach Jim Montgomery for Esa Lindell

    Marchand- Bergeron- Pasta
    DeBrusk- Krejci- Bjork
    Donato-JFK - Senyshyn
    Fitzgerald- Frederic-Backes
    Kuraly

    To the many of you who so willingly have Fitzgerald in your lineups- I hope he's a lot better than his dad was. What a snooze he was.

    I say they win game 2 if Marchand is given a penalty shot or PP, and they don’t screw up with the Pasta high stick.

    Should have been 3-2 coming back to Boston.

    No doubt in my mind the refs cost them 2 legit wins.

    Refs sucked but the only game the Bruins deserved to win was game 1. End of story.

    I’d like him in a 3rd line/pp role. And be paid accordingly.

    Like you said though, I just think some team will pay him like a 30 goal guy instead of what he is now

    They were up a goal with 7 minutes left when the refs handed TB a goal on a play that should have been a penalty on them.

    They absolutely deserved that win.

    That and game 2 when Marchand gets slashed on a break away. Now they didn't deserve to win that game but that doesn't mean they wouldn't have had that been called properly.

    Exactly.

    TB won game 4 and didn’t deserve it.

    That’s sports!

    There is no such thing as deserving a win. There’s just winning and losing.

    If you end up ahead at the end of the game you won.

    TB won 4-1.

    Whether or not they deserved it doesn’t matter.

    Respectfully disagree. They absolutely deserved to win game 4 too after playing a very good second and third period in that game. That none call on McAvoy was surely the back bracker. Something that sucks the morale out of your head. Love that he called the refs out. He is my favourite player but I don't like Bergys reaction on the topic. Never expected him to blame the series loss on them because Tampa was the better team but at least send a message that refs could have been better. Otherwise you can not expect them to get their **** together in the future if they aren't held responsible.

    Bruins got also screwed in game 2.
    Just imagine what would have been possible if the refs didn't rob those 4 minutes.
    Or if they didn't take the opportunity to score 2 goals in 5 seconds to tie the game late in the third.
    Of course we don't know if Marchand had scored, but I'm pretty sure it would have been a back-breaker early in the series.

    That non call not only took away a desreved Bruins a PP with just 7 minutes left in the 3rd period, it gave Stamkos a gift goal and a tie game.......and also demoralized the Bruins.


    The refs had it in for the B's, and that was the biggest and costliest non call of the playoffs.

    No doubt every team has injuries, there are bumps and bruises that I suspect most, if not all players are playing through this time of year and then there are injuries that a player tries to play through but severely hampers their ability to be able to maintain whatever their level of play was if healthy.

    Yep, I understand, sounds like I`m making an excuse, I`m not, thought the B`s were outplayed, depth scoring completely dried up but I can`t imagine trying to compete with a team like the Bolts with groin/shoulder injuries, some potentially requiring off season surgery, Acciari playing with a sport hernia virtually all season long, these things test the depth of a team, and the B`s couldn`t keep up

    100% healthy, B`s vs the Bolts, I see no reason why the B`s couldn`t take the series but that isn`t the reality of playoff hockey.

    After a few days away, I am no closer to hating the NHL less. I am thinking of retiring from all things NHL.

    They were the better team, no doubt, but it's impossible to beat both them AND the refs.

    I am pretty sure I will be over it by September, but I want to hear that **** is going to change for the better.

    This may sound stupid, but I am trying as hard as I can to "divorce" sports. I want to be able to still watch, but not have a super emotional attachment. Vikings are setting me up again, Bruins are headed in right direction and the Mets will probably suck until new owners. I hate the way losing makes me feel. I have zero control over it. Now, we need to worry about absolutely incompetent officiating, at levels never before seen, and I say this both ways. Toronto game 5 was the worst officiated game I have ever seen and we were on the good end. I am blessed beyond compare, and the only negative in my life is my reactions to my sports teams....well and fantasy football haha.
