I didn’t see where McAvoy turned there. Looked like he pulled up before the boards just like anyone else would. If he didn’t pull up he literally would have skated face first into the boards.

I can't blame this team if they quit. This league has declared open season on them and if they dare retaliate they're sent off immediately. Two sets of rules.

So Tampa can do whatever the fuck they want and it is all okay and if the Bruins brush by them too hard it is another PP. Seems fair.

I love that Emrick says no call on the ice so they can't review. Then WTf did they do on the Ritchie hit? Paquette should not get any benefits of the doubt. League remains garbage.

Didn’t paquette also punch someone in the face after the play right in front of the ref? Absolutely amazing he did not go to the box for anything in that sequence.

Sorry lurker post here.

Other than beating the Vancouver dream team. What have the Bruins done to deserve such brutal officiating? All the time for the last 9 plus years.

Of course I 'm watching this game in Tampa ...but it sure looked like both were going full tilt into boards ...McAvoy hit the brakes, turned and they both piled into boards...not like Paquette lined him up and boarded him,,,

Marchand licked a guy.

Thats not at all what happened. Pauqette was stopped and then leveraged his arms in McAvoy's back while his head was down. It was dirty and dangerous

He was looking at his numbers the entire time...where did he think he was going to hit him?

really. I've looked that the replay 10 times and that is all I see....then again..that's what every Tampa fan sees....and every Bruin fans sees a flagrant boarding that deserves 5 minutes and a suspension..why? Sports.

No. Thanks for the primer on sports, though.

..and Jones said on the air.. ..no call is the right call ....so ..it isn't as clear cut as it appears

That isn't what happened and I doubt you would be saying the same thing if the teams were reversed.

Refs have let Tampa coast back for icings all series. It’s fucking bullshit.

And of course that happens. Fucker could 100% have gotten to the puck.

Start running everything that moves.
