    Wow, how things can change in a heartbeat.

    When the Blues rolled through town January 17, Bruins fans were hoping the Blues would mail it in for the rest of the season and perhaps leave Brayden Schenn or even Vladamir Tarasenko behind, in exchange for futures.

    And it wasn't even a far out thought.

    I doubt it was in anyone's mind that the next time they come through town would be the Stanley Cup Final.

    They are several notches better than what the B's have faced so far in this year's playoffs, so yes, I'm a bit nervous.

    Pete DeBoer said at the end of the WCF that the two heaviest teams are meeting in the Final. And while skill, speed, and smaller players thrive today, playing a heavy game got both St. Louis and Boston to the Dance.

    So I think the layoff will be good, as the B's will be going in with fresh bodies.

    Binnington has been a great story, but I hope Rask can be the difference.

    It's not unprecedented - Matt Murray beat the more experienced Pekka Rinne a couple of years ago. But St. Louis doesn't have quite the offensive firepower of Pittsburgh.

    Brayden Schenn was on the Bruins radar and a deal was close - but the Blues started winning.

    The Blues somehow knocked off Winnipeg, faced elimination against Dallas and became enraged when San Jose won Game 3 on a hand pass.

    This is going to be a tough series - both teams have climbed about the tree line and the summit is in sight.

    My feeling is the Bruins will lose a game at TD Garden but will win a game at Enterprise Center. The Bruins survived losing 2 at home against Toronto - they can't do that against the Blues.

    I like the Jets a lot, but St. Louis was one of my few first round picks I got right. Winnipeg was average at best down the stretch. They left lots of points on the table against inferior teams, they weren't getting quite the level of goaltending, and while we learned it was injury related, Laine wasn't the threat he had been. They also seem to have tuned out Paul Maurice.

    Dallas is my second favorite team, and it was a solid season for them. But St. Louis was clearly better. Were it not for Ben Bishop, that series is over in 5 or 6. Scary that an OT goal in Game 7 and Dallas wins, but they were outplayed throughout.

    The Blues really rallied after the botched hand pass call. But like Boston in the 2013 Final, the Sharks were running out of healthy bodies.

    I remember reading Wayne Gretzky say how weird he felt playing against the Oilers after he was traded, since he was still good friends with so many Edmonton players. I know David Backes left via free agency and not a trade, but this has to be really unusual for him.

    Agreed. Split is a minimum.

    It’s been a great story for the Blues, worst to first against the odds and a shot at the cup.

    However the Blue Jackets were a great story

    Then the Hurricanes were a great story

    Should be another good match up for us. B’s in 5

    Blues are not facing Martin Jones between the pipes
    Watched the last few games and what ever they through at net was basically going in
    Add to that San Jose has no defense

    Some day maybe they'll find that the Bruins are a great story.

    End result - Bruins win

    Gotta love the Blues they are built the way my blueprint would look

    They are the Bruins of the West which is not surprising

    They will win a Cup soon just not in 2019

    We'll be forcing their hands. Give them no choice but acknowledge how great our story is.
    Win the cup this year to start...
    We are in a great position to get a few in a row.

    Some hockey panel in Canada about this decade dynasties.

    Chicago, Pittsburgh, LA.
    Boston will be considered if winning 2nd cup and a final within the decade.

    No they won't lol.

    The first soft goal he gives up during pre-season and they'll be all over him again. Probably something along the lines of "now that he's won a cup Rask doesn't care anymore"
