    The refs blew the play dead because they were feeling guilty for not calling a penalty. Of course Jackass Edwards won't criticize the refs for the initial botched call.

    Joe Bowen is radio only, the Leafs removed him from the air because his bias was a little much at times. Bruins don't seem to care how homer they appear. Guess that's just a small difference in philosophy between these two organizations.

    The leafs won by 2 goals, without scoring on an empty net. Do the math.

    In 2005, Hughson was hired by CBC as Hockey Night in Canada's secondary play-by-play announcer. In 2008, he signed an exclusive six-year contract with the CBC, leaving Rogers Sportsnet at the conclusion 07/08 season.

    Hughson and Simpson haven't been considered Canucks regular commentators for an entire decade, come out from under your rock anytime.

    Leafs main commentators during regular season are Paul Romanuk and Greg Millen who are FAR from biased. Occasionally we get Gord Miller and Ray Ferarro who are also easily the most professional unbiased commentators in the sport.

    Really not comparable. Edwards is way worse.

    Joe Bowan isn't on the air anymore, he only calls the games on the radio, is this difficult for you to understand?

    That was a strange game.
    Not sure what the refs were doing? Was kinda like how you'd ref 16 year-olds versus 12 year-olds to keep it fair, always expecting that no matter how much you favoured the 12 year-olds, that the 16 year-olds would win. But they never.

    What's difficult to understand is the part where you say the Leafs removed him from TV for being biased. When the hell did that happen?

    Let me guess, he was fine with the play being blown dead when McQuaid took the puck to the throat?

    They weren't skating in the first two games? You are going to have to explain to me why they weren't doing that... apart from the fact that they were!!! Were they on snowshoes? I'm lost... I guess the playoffs just aren't important enough? hmmm...

    Obviously Chara isn't a great skater.. there are plenty of players that can compensate for that by being effective defensively, and being 7'0 tall on skates sure helps..

    Pipe it down a bit. Boston hasn’t won in Toronto in two years. Kadri comes back in Game 5.

    Plekanec shut down Bergeron. Bergeron and Marchand were too busy hacking and whacking at Plekanec that they never bothered to play.

    Good win, but the Leafs are still the heavy underdogs. They need to win the next one just as badly

    I thought Boston was supposed to be a team of tough bullies who are favored if the refs put the whistles away, which they did. Not sure why you'd whine
