I don't watch much hockey, but that's a Houston Oilers level collapse.  Holy Christ.

Somewhere, Mike Myers is crying his eyes out.

FTFA:  Eighty-two seconds from another painful elimination

Now that just sounds wrong.

I'm torn.
On the one hand, I hate the Bruins with a white hot passion.
On the other hand, they did beat the Leafs, so maybe they aren't all Satan spawn after all...


/No, they're still Satan spawn, alright.
//But the Leafs are worse.

Bill Barilko disappeared, that summer 
He was on a fishing trip 
The last goal he ever scored 
Won the Leafs the cup 
The didn't win another
til 1962 
The year he was discovered

I stole this from a hockey card

Ugh.

Toronto faces the one team they ABSOLUTELY did not want in the Bruins.

They manage to win 2 games in Boston and force the series to a game 7.

They lead FOUR TO GODDAMN ONE WITH 10 TO GO IN THE THIRD AND F*CKING LOSE.


I mean, you can hate the Leafs, that's fine, and in most cases, understandable, but imagine for a minute that is your team. Imagine that your team is in that position in a game 7 and you lose in overtime.

F*cking hell. That is rough.

I'm over it. I would have taken this harder had I not have a life or other things to think about. I feel bad for the kids who are leaf fans. It hurts more when you're that age. At that age hockey is everything. When you get older it still means a lot but it's not the most important thing in the world.

Still proud of the Leafs and the ass kicking they gave Chara who was knocked down all series. Rangers will have an easier time with Boston since they are near out of gas.

The Toronto hockey experience is one consisting excluively of false promise.

Nothing else.

Sad.

...and utterly hilarious
 
2013-05-14 06:57:49 AM  
I feel for the Leafs fans, I truly do. However, consider the greater good: your team certainly isn't as likely to stop the menace that is the Pittsburgh Penguins as the Bruins are.
 
2013-05-14 07:06:29 AM  
How do you say "factory of sadness" in québécois? And yes, I know Toronto isn't in Quebec. Is it?
 
2013-05-14 07:11:57 AM  
Can't really be that upset since the whole season went much better than I expected. But I really wish they would have lost that game 7 in any other way than choking away a late lead.
 
2013-05-14 07:24:33 AM  
Classic Leafs.  Leafin' it up in the Leafiest way possible.

/Yeah, Moe, that team sure did Leaf.  They were the Leafiest bunch of Leafs that ever Leafed!
 
2013-05-14 07:26:30 AM  
Tough way to lose a series... I'm a huge Bruins fans and I'm ecstatic over the comeback win, but damn, that's a tough way to lose a series. Always had a good time with Leafs' fans at the Garden and at Sully's before and after games.

On the positive side, Toronto finally has a team that deserves that fan base and I think they've got some good years of hockey ahead of them.

This picture is fantastic, too. Love the emotion on display.

I'm still having trouble processing the last 5 mins of that game...  Hard lesson for a young team.  Here's hoping they learned it.

/go Leafs!
 
2013-05-14 07:45:51 AM  
Toronto saw its worst rioting in three years last night as at least a half-dozen garbage cans were reportedly kicked in frustration.
 
2013-05-14 07:47:45 AM  
I decided not to invest emotionally in this short season (or buy any hockey related merch, or go to any leaf games). Looks like I make the right call.
 
2013-05-14 07:48:44 AM  
Sorry. After last year and the Caps getting pummelled, this is my overriding reaction this morning:

Which means that the Rangers will take the series over the Bruins in epic fashion.

What is this "hockey" you speak of?

This collapse further reinforces their status as the Chicago Cubs of hockey.
 
2013-05-14 08:13:17 AM  

UNC_Samurai: Chara's not going to get a call from Dancing With the Stars anytime soon - he clearly can't support his partner during the dip.


Heh... That's what happens when you tango with someone who's almost 7 feet tall and who grew up with a father, who was an Olympic wrestler.

Dykey also got his nose broken by Chris Kelly in that game, as well.

/maybe they did - I barely watched that game, 'cause it was stupidly started at 8, not 7:30

Wow. The Bruins frustrate the crap out of me. They play well in the first 10 minutes. After Toronto ties it at 1 they go into their mediocre dump, chase, cycle, shoot on goal, get a big rebound, but have no one in the slot to capitalize routine for 40 god damned minutes. Then they play like their hair is on fire for the last 11 minutes.

Can I have something in between?

Good series, Leafs fans. Sort out your goaltending and add a top 4 D-man and you'll do better next year. Your team definitely has enough firepower on offense to make some noise.

Chara had a goal, 7 assists, and was +6 in the playoffs...  I guess by "knocked down" you mean instrumental?

And as far as being "out of gas" the Rangers just played 7 games against the much stronger Caps, so the B's are on even footing as far as energy is concerned.  I guess playing the Leafs brings a different kind of tired?
 
2013-05-14 09:18:10 AM  
So I take it Reimer is in protective custody at some undisclosed facility?

...not that he's the only one to blame, of course, but you just know there are Toronto fans ready to string him up and put his head on a pike in front of the HHoF.

Wow.

Just. Wow.

I'm hung over as shiat today. I still can't believe the B's pulled that one out of their ass.

Congrats again to Leafs fans, this was a good learning experience for a young, talented team. The Bruins needed their epic meltdown against the Flyers to get them over the hump I still believe.

Moving on, I can't see the Bruins making it past the Rangers Lundqvist. I know the B's somehow scored all those goals in the 3rd, but their offense is still really suspect. Not to mention the loss of Seidenberg and Ference will no doubt ruin their hopes.

At the beginning of this thing, I said the Bruins wouldn't make it out of the first round. I'm glad I was wrong, but I have a feeling I won't be wrong again.

Nah, I doubt it. Leafs fans know hockey well enough. You can't put that loss on Reimer's shoulders. He was solid in net for them.

Basically, shiat happens. wrong bounce this way, split second wrong decision.... Etc. The game is fast. It's easy to look back and find specific mistakes, but the Leafs controlled that game right up until the end.

It's sucks, but that's how it goes in hockey. Seems most Leafs' fans around here are taking it well, so I don't see any problems for the team and I image they'll be greeted warmly by the fans.
 
2013-05-14 09:35:30 AM  
So I guess the parade is off then?
 
2013-05-14 09:42:21 AM  
The Bruins were just toying with them the whole time.  Kinda like Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown.
 
2013-05-14 09:43:07 AM  
Rough loss. I'm not a huge Leafs fan, but it would have been great for the city. Still, lots to be proud of this season. Considering Toronto's abysmal record against the Bruins over the last five years, it's something of a moral victory to take them to seven in a bunch of close games.

Lundqvist was all over any pucks shot towards the net. And any that were on the edge of his range, the Rangers d-men were good at scooping the puck away and moving it back into the Craps' zone.

The Craps seemed to be focusing more on rattling the Rangers physically - a lot of barely legal (or outright illegal, but never called) checks into the boards, ice, etc.

All in all, I'm thrilled with the 5-0 shutout. I loathe the Craps.

I'm looking forward to the Bruins-Rangers series. I just hope the Rangers didn't burn through all their stamina potions against the Craps.
 
2013-05-14 09:53:32 AM  
shouldn't that be "un-freaking-be-Leaf-able?"  now that's what i call traditional leafs hockey...
 
2013-05-14 09:58:54 AM  
Well, every time they gave up fewer than four goals, they won. That's something.

/what's great is that you knew the Leafs would lose as soon as the third Bruins' goal was scored
 
2013-05-14 10:10:37 AM  
Still can't believe that happened last night. I've been a life long Vikings fan so I KNOW soul crushing loss. But last night seems like it would take things to another level. I'm just hoping round 2 produces that kind of drama.
 
2013-05-14 10:10:49 AM  
1.  As a lifelong fan of the Buds, that was in no way unbelievable.  In fact, it wasn't even completely surprising.  It was just really farking disappointing.  Just when you thought we were over that whoe "coming up just short on effort" mentality.

2.  I lost a bet.  As payment, my friend the Bruins fan gets to choose the Leafs joke I post.  Here goes.

What does a Bear do after taking a shiat in the forest?  Wipes its ass with Leafs.

3. Dear Rangers:  Please stab Chara, Marchand and Bergeron in the neck with a skate.  Regards, Leafs Nation.
 
2013-05-14 10:12:07 AM  
Well, Toronto is one of those teams that finds a way to screw it up when it matters most, would not rule a curse that is on them either.
 
2013-05-14 10:12:59 AM  
They'll win another cup once they contract the league back down to 6 teams
