    So both sides get a flukey goal but Boston has just been better putting pressure on the defense. St. Louis has been better on the road so Gm 7 should be fun

    This feels rigged.

    Thought Boston was overwhelmingly the more physical team last night. St. Louis has seemingly always had an answer to that in the next game, so we'll see what happens.

    A St. Louis tradition since 1985. Pissing off a trophy by losing games 6 and 7.

    My heart goes out to anyone who bet under 5 goals last night. A 1-0 game going into the third period and ends 5-1. Ouch.

    If the Bruins win it’s obviously Rask. But if St. Louis wins, even though Rask is possible I hope the voters give it to O’Reilly. Binnington would be a cool story but I’d vote for O’Reilly.

    Binnington has had a couple of clunkers in the finals, so I don't think it would be him. For St. Louis, I'd say absent Tarasenko scoring 4 goals or something in Game 7, it would have to be O'Reilly. Tarasenko was basically invisible last night - I know his wife gave birth on Friday, so maybe he has hit the wall with the emotion of everything going on.

    I'm just hoping for OT on Wednesday. Nothing compares to that, IMO, with the massive swings in momentum with every shift and every time the puck enters the zone.

    Yesterday was insanity and an example of current journalism at its worst. Pierre LeBrun reported this in The Athletic. Throughout the day, at least a dozen "news organizations" also reported this using LeBrun as the source. By mid-afternoon, Eric Stephens, also in The Athletic, added a text-quote from Ryan Getzlaf, verifying LeBrun's report.
    LeBrun and Stephens were the only ones who did any original reporting, yet a dozen or more news organizations reported this.
