    After the handpass game, the Blues played very determined hockey. Even a healthy San Jose team would have been given fits. Definitely a turning point in their postseason.

    The whining on Boston sports talk radio today is hilarious. The ref didn't blow the call because he blew the call, but he was under the influence of Berube's mind control after the coach bitched about the officiating after Game Three. And that's the hosts. The callers want a bloodbath in Game Six.

    I'm sure it was similar to the whining done (and still being done) by Blues' fans after the hand-pass goal.

    The thing that's a little ironic to me is that Berube said after Game 3 that it was interesting how the Blues were the least-penalized team in the playoffs coming into the final, then were called for 5, 5 and 7 penalties in the first 3 games. After that, the Blues have still been called for 6 penalties (to Boston's 4) in the last 2 games. So while sure, they blew the non-call on the tripping, it's not like there's been this big-time shift.

    If Cassidy is right and Berube's comments after Game 3 helped shift the officiating in the Blues' favor, then Cassidy needs to up his game. It's on him at this point.

    Wouldn't a bloodbath play to the Blues' favor?

    Sure. But talk show callers are not renowned for logic in any town.

    Kudos to the Post-Dispatch for their headline "What a Trip!" Expert trolling.

    It's a conspiracy by the league against the Bruins.
