    But do they have the goaltending...
    I'm not sure about SJ's goaltending.  But St. Louis goaltender Binnington has been pretty close to the best goalie in the league since he was called up in January...I do not think I've seen a rookie goalie perform this well since Roy in  86...

    SJ is the high scoring team in the league.  If Boston faces SJ, they will not be facing an inept offence like Carolina.

    Let's not forget Boston played a 7th and 8th seed to get there...


    You're right,  they've had an easy road
    Boston is a good team...no doubt.  I was surprised they beat the Leafs...I thought the leafs were young and eager to make the next step.

    I think St. Louis stands the best chance for 2 reasons, better goaltending than SJ and they do not take many penalties...SJ, on the other hand, is not very well disciplined...

    They say an 11-day layoff for the Bruins? I wonder how that will effect Rask?  He is in a zone.
    I will agree about goaltending for the Blues this series but I think you’re way off on the discipline angle. We (the Blues) have taken some really, really stupid penalties this series. I’m looking at you, David Perron. I get that you’re the guy who gets under the skin of the other club with being feisty, but you’ve taken some stupid penalties at key points in this series. 
    I think Jones has been really shaky this whole series. He had a good stretch in the third period and overtime of game 3, but beyond that he’s just been okay at best. 
    I do think the Blues take this series in the end, but it will likely take 7 and game 7 will be just a knock down drag out bloodbath.

    Winner of game 5 wins the series, at least going by the numbers.  
    Go Blues, beat those damn Sharks!

    All I can go by is what the CBC analyst say...and they have said the Blues have been doing a good job limiting penalties.  I'm not doing a google search to see if they are factually correct nor am I going to sort a bunch of stats on penalties on a team that I only know exist if they make the playoffs...

    Watching the games and forming your own opinions > listening to the talking heads' opinions

    Opinions are like assholes, anyway, everyone having one....might as well form your own.

    Yeah man. Absolutely. I watch 2/3 of the Blues games over the regular season and all of the playoffs. I’ve seen a lot of stupid mistakes by guys like Perron and Pietrangelo that are not ones they made in the regular season. Perron starting shit hoping for a retaliation penalty has happened a couple of times already. I love Perron. Having a guy with his mentality could be huge in making a run, BUT he goes up to the edge of what’s legal and steps over at bad times. 
    I think Binnington is the type of goalie the Blues have needed fooooor like 51 years. They’ve never really developed a quality NHL goalie. Curtis Joseph is probably the closest. Then Bishop...who developer after we traded him. Binnington has ice in his veins and can walk the line between overly confident and arrogant really, really well for such a young guy.

    StL off to a good start....still plenty of time for the refs to find a way to let SJ back into this one.
    Perhaps their so called "defenders" will score some goals.

    SJ appears to be running on Empty now.  St. Louis needs to finish them off at home.

    Storms are supposed to be rolling through the St. Louis area around 9:00 tonight. If those storms knock out my DirecTV signal (which they will) and I have to watch the ending on my phone...well, it won't be ideal but I'll take it.

    People here are a bit up in arms because it was rumored for years that the Sabres would be returning to Royal Blue starting at the 50th anniversary.  The dark blue (and any color scheme other than the original are largely hated).... although there is a small segment of fans who grew up with Red/Black who feel nostalgic to that.

    The rumor is that the Sabres meant to, but 2 years ago, they took out some silver 'piping' and silver in the arm pits, and there is a 3 year minimum between primary jersey changes.  

    Regardless, we are getting a 3rd this season.

    ESPN Radio in St. Louis played a clip of my Blues version of Eddie's "All The Way" last hour and I think they're going to play the full song this hour.

    That St. Louis D can be stifling at times.  The Blues need to keep up the good discipline, the CBC announcer said they were only getting penalized 6. minutes a game on average in the playoffs?  Or WCF?  Got to keep the Bruins PP sidelined as much as possible.  The big stage does not seem to bother Binningham, he continues to play well.

    Seems like eons ago since the BRUINS last played. Four more wins and make history even though the Blues are well disciplined, defensive minded team. The Bruins must keep their composure to win this Cup. That said...
    GO BRUINS!
