I was just discussing last night with some friends how this loss was one of the hardest in all my years. Not just with the timing of family members dying, but the... opportunity lost.

The universe lined up for the Bruins. This was as golden an opportunity to win as a team will ever, ever get.

And they blew it. Straight up blew it.

Blew it is harsh. They dominated the first 10 minutes of the first and were stoned by Binnington.

That one save on Krug (I think) when Binnington ended up on his ass is burned in my memory. I think I concussed myself with my hands clutching the back of my head when that didn't go

Krug or Marchand? Cause Brad had about 30% of the net open and fired it into his shoulder.

Fuck is right. This is not going to go away.

Marchand shooting back across the net into Binnington when the other half of the net was wide open are the two that will haunt me.

Fuck.

Binnington sucks too. That's what galls me. He's Andrew Fucking Hammond and in Feb he'll be in fucking Peoria. And they couldn't get one by him. He was straight up shit in 2 games in the Final. He could have been had.

Christ I'm angry about this. They will never have a better setup to win the Cup and they fucking blew it. I'm also never going to forget that the league decided to make Craig Berube the director of league play by allowing his ridiculous complaints about the reffing to essentially gift Game 5 to STL and to ensure no penalties were called in Game 7. Shameful.

Acciari in early only to be stick checked. Bergy all alone in front. Marchy all alone on the PP in the slot. Krejci somehow not finishing the saucer pass from Krug at the end of the PP.

All in the first 8 minutes of the game. 2 of these go in and they fucking win.

I’m really starting to believe in the Dale Arnold curse. As soon as I saw that smug face that fat fucking prick was making pre game I should’ve known how that was going to go. The biggest improvement the organization could make this offseason is to get that fucking jinx off the broadcast.

I think 1 goes in and they win. St Louis played one of the best games I’ve ever seen a team do under pressure on the road, getting the first and then shutting it down. They couldn’t do that if the Bs had scored 1st.

The Marchy miss was the one that will haunt me...he does not miss that.
