The shot of Cam about to throw the table from his box onto the ice was something else.

NHL should be fucking embarrassed regarding the “officiating” in this series. I feel like I’m watching Bruins/Canadiens c. 1979.

I’m fucking tired of the bullshit from these entire playoffs. It’s really dampening any enjoyment of these games. Constantly wondering when the next bullshit call or no-call will come, like watching a CB make a nice play and just waiting for the flag to fly.

Caveat this with "I don't actually think the refs are actively trying to screw the Bruins", but I agree. It's been really hard to watch. It's been this way for years for the Bruins, just magnified in these last two series (wasn't really an issue against Ottawa last year, I don't think, because the Bruins were pretty ineffective in that series anyway). The Bruins generally don't dive, or try to sell calls, they fight through trips and hooks instead of going down, and I think it shows in the discrepancy in penalties for/against over the last few years. It is part of the reason I love them so much, but it certainly bites them in the ass quite a bit.

What’s best realistic case for Krug’s ankle? I’m hoping he only severely sprained it. Otherwise, it looked horrible going into the boards.

I just don't want to hear another person say "You just have to play through it," "you can't blame the refs," "bad calls even out" or some other shit. It's been game after game after game, and we're all biased, but anyone with eyes can tell the B's are getting the shit end of the stick on a majority of these calls, and you simply can't play 8on5 and win in hockey. At least not win against the #1 seed in the playoffs. I believe we're now at like 15 power plays to 8 for Tampa in this series. When you factor in that they are getting way more calls, and then add in the bad calls and the non-calls, they have gotten like triple the number of massive breaks the B's have gotten. Almost impossible to win in that situation.

You know it’s bad when national announcers can’t even hide it anymore.

"oh my goodness gracious." now said by two announcers that I don't respect at all.
