    They lost the second and third periods.

    Brindamour is kicking himself for not practicing 4-on-3 power play more (or ever), they really didn't use the extra space well at all.

    Williams has become the Canes' problem instead of their solution.


    I agree about Tukka, but, like the saying goes, " I'd rather be lucky than good!"

    You need good special teams to win the Cup. Carolina doesn't seem to have them. That, and Rask, made the difference last night.

    What are you doing about it?

    Handpass, absolutely. The blues got hosed.

    A bad call on par with the non-called pass interference in the Saints-Rams game, and equally inexcusable that they didn't use the available technology to make the obvious correction.

    If the play leading up to a gamewinning goal can be reviewed WRT offside/onside, or high-stick deflection, it can be reviewed for a handpass!

    I had to crash before the overtime started. Sorry to hear it went that way, I thought the Blues pretty much owned the game.

    What are you doing about it?

    ...and they certainly owned this one. San Jose just fell apart.

    Man! That was a dominating performance by the Blues and the Sharks really imploded. I love watching hockey when a team works that hard.

    Boston has a relentless forecheck and stifling defense. St. Louis has no time or space.
    Still they persist and keep grinding away. If they can get pucks through to Rask, they will score.
    Go Blues!

    A game seven finale in Boston. Could it get any better than that?

    Wish the final was in the old Garden (as long as the lights didn't black out). Raucous venue. Even when it was foggy inside!

    Bennington!!!

    I'm both happy and amazed it's the Blues up 2-0 at the first intermission.

    Yeah, I'm loving this. If a team is going to beat the Jets, I want them to go all the way.

    What are you doing about it?

    Has anyone ever won the Calder and the Conn Smythe in the same year? 'Cause Binnington looks good for both.

    The goalie is always a wise choice; sometimes the losing goalie is the worthy recipient. I'd be looking close at the Blues captain for MVP also. Bur it ain't over yet!/ Jim

    Yeah, Pietrangelo has been solid. So has O'Reilly, for that matter.

    Not sure Rask has been any more impressive than Binnington.

    Wow. Now for the scary part where the blues go into protection mode. I would much rather see them keep the pedal to the floor than rely on Bennington.

    Ehhhh... they're being careful, but they'll take their chances as they come. Gonna be a long 20 minutes, though. They just better stay the hell out of the box - and you can bet Berube mentions THAT in the dressing room!

    Yeah, they have had discipline problems in a few games but tonight they are playing some of the tightest defensive hockey I've seen. That third goal should do it.
