Need to answer the forecheck and quick. Tuukka has been up to the task but if they keep getting hemmed in Blues will score

Bruins still having a very tough time with St. Louis’ two-man forecheck and pinching D. That’s how St. Louis has generated all its offense. Bruins need to win battles and get the puck up and out fast.

Holy shit just saw the Kerry Fraser bullshit. Is he still an active ref?

Edit: nope and oh shit check out his next tweet. Didn't know he was a Blues fan.

Um, Mr. Fraser, the leagues is paying lip service to the idea, that even if Nordstrom doesn't protect himself it doesn't mean the other player gets to board him into next week. It's a penalty, should have been a major, and should be an automatic suspension.

Jenna Fischer is from Indiana, and hasn’t been in a movie I’ve heard of since 2011’s Hall Pass, proving again she owes all her success to Bruins fans.

Shawn Thornton came to me in a dream last night. In despair, I lamented that we needed his toughness and physicality...and that the Blues needed a total ass-kicking. But he said “No, our boys need their smarts, their skill and their belief in one another. We’ve got this.” Then he smiled and left. It was exactly like when Kevin Costner spoke with Moonlight Graham, which is why I already know this series is going back to Boston.

Holy shit, how did Schwartz not pass it to the guy sitting by himself in front of Rask calling for the puck?

you're allowed to check someone from behind into the net?

For those of us that don't watch hockey as much as the rest of you.. what is a cross check? And why is hitting someone from behind generally ok.. is it only the distance away from the boards? Is this something that isn't normally called in the playoffs?
