This has ended up quite a bit like the 2011 series where the Bruins were extremely strong in their wins while the opponent won by much closer margins. Feeling very good.

The escalators don’t break, they purposely shut them down and when they do run they only allow like 10 people on at a time even though the thing foes up like 3 floors.

Went to the game we played there in Feb, it’s maddening.

Somewhere earlier in the thread (before game start), someone posted that he Blues rented out the top floor of a bar tonight for their afterparty.
I wonder if they had a contingency plan, or if there’s an empty bar with house music blaring, women standing around,and a bunch of champagne on ice unopened. Like Kenny Powers’ Independence Day party in “Eastbound and Down”

Saw periods 1&2. Had to leave for work and listened to 3rd period on a shitty AM station w/ Kenny Albert. B's still struggling to clear pucks in the early going...did they just turn it on in the third? What changed?
I keep expecting them to dominate period 3 like they have all playoffs, seems like they figured it out tonight?
Kuhlman was a nice change of pace. Z looked much better too, I thought.
Huge win. CUP NEXT!!

I think part of the puck clearing success is they stopped throwing it up the boards. The Blues always seem to thwart clears that rattle along the boards, but we have luck passing or skating through the middle.

The main difference in the period was just the Bruins started shooting.

Weirdly in the history of Game 7 deciders in Boston, all of them have been against just two cities: LA and StL. All but one have ended well.
1957 Celts over StL Hawks
1960 Celts over StL Hawks
1962 Celts over LAL
1966 Celts over LAL
1967 StL Cards over Sox
1984 Celts over LAL
2019 v StL Blues

edit: should have said deciders in the Championship Finals

I got the go ahead from the wife to fly home if i could find some "reasonably priced" tickets for Wednesday night.

That's enough for me to know I married the right person... but "reasonably priced" might mean something different to me than it does to her. LOL

Holy shit, this was incredible.

Carlton said we won that series 3 games to 4, so shush.

Here's hoping we're pinning another Game 7 thread to the top of the forum come Thursday. Just for funsies, I'm gonna read through the old one.

Brilliant 4 goal 3rd period with the season on the line!

Amazing that this is the first 7th game in Boston in Bruin's history

Basically, this has turned into a great series

Dale Arnold's gonna be so wired tomorrow on 'EEI
Down 4-1 in the 3rd period to the Maple Leafs in game 7 at Boston doesn’t count?

I believe the key element being left out here is Game 7 Stanley Cup. There have been many, many, many playoff Game 7s in Boston - none in the finals, though.
Missed the point of this entirely - I thought you all were talking about the multiple references to "Never been a Game 7 in Boston until now."
