Lost three home games. Just a massive choke no other way to slice it.

Marchand picks literally anywhere else to shoot on the PP and it’s a whole different game. Also probably a different game if he didn’t fire his brain into space with ten seconds to go.

Fucking scrimmage.
Three fucking home games IN A ROW

The third was a complete outwork of McAvoy and great pass.

They scored four goals. They deserve it. Quit your fucking crying.
What did I say that was wrong? Do you know when it gets easier to score? When the other team has to press because you have an undeserved 2 goal lead...

Stop crying. They put the puck in the net four times and their rookie goalie stood on his head. Does he not count as part of their team?

I’m aware of that. The puck is bouncing for both teams and neither has gotten some disparity of fucked or blessed by the bounces.
You’re right. It wasn’t a factor in the outcome. It was bad for both teams. Still no less disappointing.

At least it was a clean lose in Game 7. Annoying series and I hate the Blues, but we had a chance to win it all on home ice and they put the puck in the net more.

Reality is this was a team built to win with special teams. Whistles go swallowed had them working from behind. Game needed to be called tight but straight up.

Update: the Blues also complained about my middle finger and I’ve been ejected from the Garden
I'm sure they were just as offended when the Blues fan flipped off Nordstrom last game right in front of the camera after he got creamed right....

What’s this deal with Rask’s legacy? Before tonight many across the nation were arguing that Rask deserved the Conn Smythe trophy win or lose. That’s obviously not happening after tonight, but he’s been incredible despite the team’s performances.

Losing in game 7 of the finals is a pretty great season but it doesn't feel like it right now. After one round with tampa gone and especially entering the SCF I hoped for better.

Truthfully, if you go into the other team's barn and win 3, you deserve it.

That's what I told the Toronto folks before game 7 of that series, and its's true here, too. .250 at home doesn't cut it in any sport, at any time of year

California. Duh.
I'm convinced the Bruins are the better team. Unfortunately tonight the other goalie was hot and the bounces didn't go their way. Disappointing, but still really proud of the team.

I love this team, but man, what a let down with all the top teams going down in the first two rounds.

I really hate that the Blues won games via headhunting and taking out players (especially vs San Jose and us).

I also really hate that referees played a pivotal role in deciding games.

Pretty happy to be moving to Germany in a few days, it’ll be nice to disconnect from the US and this loss until next season.

I'm really not sure if you give the CS to ROR or JB. Overall both were amazing, JB might have cemented it with tonight, even though it's obviously a full postseason award.

But man, I feel empty. Void. Incomplete, never to be filled. Hate how they played, but congrats to the genuine Blues fans. Hope they can enjoy the moment. Don't think the Bruins will be back soon. Too old of a top F team, even though I love the young D corps depth.

Marchand's face made me legit want to cry. :(

Let's boo the fuck out of Bettman. We can get that done correctly tonight, RIGHT?

A. why am I not allowed to cry in a game thread?

B. I would say relying on your goalie to keep you in the game is a pretty terrible strategy and means you have been badly outplayed. It works on occasion, but more often than not it doesn't. So I stand behind my point that they did not play better tonight.

The Bs showed a lot of heart, but no one seemed to have the fortitude to muck it up right in front of the net. Binnington had it far too easy considering the number of shots because it was all one and done, no fear of legal or illegal interference.

It happens all the time that a hot goalie leads to a deep playoff run or championship. How can you not have the goalie count as part of the team. It’s like saying the Diamondbacks only beat the Yankees in the WS because their starters were better even though the Yanks had the better team.
