If it worked that way, the Wings would've been in the conference final...

Why? There were no blow-out games in the series against the Sharks.  Every single game was a 1 goal deal, except the one with the open netter.  In contrast this series has 2 massive blowouts and 3 real close games.

Wow.. Canucks play their game and the Bruins looked asleep.  If not for Thomas that would have been a wider margin.

The officiating continues to be magical.  Roll Eyes

This series should be over already with BOS holding the cup. Six goals in give games for VAN and all three wins have been by the narrowest of margins.

IMHO those are the hardest games to win. The Canucks totally outplayed BOS last night, even with the brutal officiating.

It's going 7 games.

Missed the game last night, but my consistent ability to predict the wrong outcome is amazing!

Bruins win Monday 74-2.

Canucks tried to sell the TV rights to their victory parade after winning game 5.  I've never wanted a team to lose more.

Has any Stanley Cup Finalist ever been so consistently shellacked at away games?  Vancouver is lucky they have home ice advantage.  At least the ticket buyers aren't going home disappointed in this series.

"@DownGoesBrown: If the CBC produced a second feed for game seven that cost $100 on PPV and was called by Bob Cole I'd destroy my phone while dialing for it."

Maybe not $100 but I'd pay good money to get Canucks Superfan Hughson out of the booth and get Bob Cole for game 7. Guy may be getting senile but he IS playoff hockey to me. And Hughson is the worst.

Oh great, now Devil has screwed the Canucks by predicting a Canuck win.

I can't look forward to either team winning. It would be like if the Devils and the Hurricanes played in the finals-I'd probably just hope that some sort of disaster occurs and they have to cancel the Final.

So the Stanley Cup will be awarded on June 15th, six days later than last year and last year they took two weeks off for the Olympics. Ridiculous.

I didn't think it was possible for anyone to cause me to root for a Boston team, but the Canucks are unlikeable enough to pull it off.

Well, that and the awesomeness of Tim Thomas.

Someone needs to make a .gif of Henrik getting punched in the face and just standing there taking it, hit after hit.  I know the Sedins aren't really physical but COME ON.  Boston will win if you let them physically beat the crap out of you. Even Grapes had something to say about it. 

I'm rooting for Vancouver because I want to see the cup in Canada but I'll be almost as happy just to see Thomas raise the cup.  What a great example of cool confidence and excellent goaltending.   nod

I was right last night!

Exactly how I feel about this series. Hoping there can be some sort of labor dispute that pops up and they never give out The Cup this year.

Might not even watch.

My god what a clusterfuck.  Take away the first 10 minutes and it was a close game.. Schnieder played well as expected and if not for Thomas, would have been 5-4.

Too bad the officiating continues to be grossly inconsistent.. I think 2 sets of refs is a bad thing.  I'll say it again.. DROP THE FUCKING PUCK.  I swear at one point he was holding it for 30 seconds or more.

Nice to see the Nucks get a couple on Thomas, even if the outcome didn't mean anything.  Was sorry to see Raymond go... nice kid.


Game 7 it is!  I have no idea which way it will go.

This may be old news, but I just read that they think it's a fractured vertebrae.  That's awful, especially from such a seemingly harmless hit.  Poor guy.

Not really having a rooting interest in either team, I'm just happy we get to see a game 7.  smile  As bad as Luongo has been in Boston, he's been equally good at home.  As much as I'd like to, it's tough to bet against the Canucks in their house.

I'm curious why Bergeron, Marchand and company don't try that on Torres?

I'm still holding to my Canucks in 7 prediction, but I'm less confident about game 7 than any of the other Cancuck home games in this series. If the Sedins come out and have a performance next game on par with the others in this series, I'm reactivating my Swedish underachievement signature. I liked the performance of Schneid despite letting in 2 goals - didn't have much chance on the 2nd and made some pretty saves.

Daniel Sedin guarantees a game 7 win

http://sports.espn.go.com/boston/nhl/news/story?id=6659965

Also, I gotta think that Tim Thomas wins the Conn Smythe no matter what happens, right?

Even though I despise him, and his shit eating grin.  Absolutely, the guy is a freak.  I stand by my conviction that he is the sole reason we are even at game 7.  He has stopped some shots that any other goalie would have let in.  Nobody else on either team has stood out.

Yup, I agree Thomas is the front runner for me.

As to Sedin guaranteeing a win - I'd put some faith in that if I was confident of he and his brothers' ability to elevate their game, but as it stands I've only really ever seen that post-season from them in the Sharks series. I hope I'm wrong and they come out guns a blazin, but I'm predicting they'll have to rely on the 3rd or 4th lines and chameleon Luongo to get a win.

I'm worried about the Sedin's too.. they really need to step up.  That goal by Henrik last night was a perfect example of what they are capable of, he made Thomas do his usual aggressive stop, and just waited an put it upstairs.

So Raymond is out 4-6 months fractured vertebrae.  Too bad, shame on the Bruins fans for taunting him.  Boychuck should thank his stars the Bruins seem to be immune from punishment.

I don't know.. boarding, interference?  Was a late hit as well, and he didn't have the puck.  I mean if Rome gets 4 games because of the injury...

It's 100% not boarding.  Boarding has to do with the violence of the hit, which absolutely not violent in nature.  The result was bad, but the hit itself looks tame to anyone looking at it.

It's POSSIBLY interference.  The rule for interference is the last player to have touched the puck is deemed in possession of the puck until another player touches it.  There is no chance that Boychuk sees anyone but Raymond with the puck, and I really don't think Kesler even plays it until after the hit was already initiated.  The only real argument for interference is if you think that there were two hits by Boychuk on the play.

Unfortunate incident, but the play was pretty innocent particularly compared with the Rome hit.

So who's it going to be tonight?  Both teams have shown that they're tough to beat at home and Vancouver has bounced back after tough losses to Boston.  I think this will be a close one as usual but I don't know who it's going to go for.  I got a feeling that it will come down to a lucky bounce for one team and not for the other.  I dislike Boston as a general rule but I think Thomas is a pretty good guy so if there was some way for only him to win the Stanley Cup I would be for it.  On the other hand, I have nothing much against Vancouver but I have never liked Luongo.  I don't know who to cheer for or against! I guess I'll be a neutral party for Game 7.
