soopey: Chris Rooney and Brad Watson will be the referees. Shane Heyer and Brian Murphy will be the linesmen. I have no strong opinions on them, so hopefully they stay out of the way and let the teams play.


Heyer is ok, Murphy I could do without, he has a hard time actually watching the damn ice and paying more attention to shiat the refs should be doing.

Rooney is decent, and Watson has a history of letting the boys be boys

Soooo this outta be interesting, glad Hawks have a killer PK

Phletchengreuber: Chara and Lucic haven't been fed this week. Limbs will be lost.


RELEASE THE KRAKKEN!!!

Can't wait for this to start. Been a great ride so far. I think the B's can win.

I've got a ton of respect for Chicago. Not a lot to dislike about them.....yet.

Here's to a classic series, Hawks fans! Good luck and Cheers!

/B's 4-2 winners in game 1?
// Will still go 6 or7 games either way.

I have a night class tonight so I'm likely gonna miss game 1, unless the class gets out early. I'll be awfully salty if the SCF is scheduled for Monday/Wednesday nights the next two weeks since that's when my night class happens.

/go Hawks!

They've got nothing better to do after San Jose swept them in round 1.

We'd hate for a perfectly good couch to be ruined.  Bruins won't let Toews score.

Anderson's Pooper: caira: So, a six-team one-division league for how long and there are still two teams who never managed to make it to the finals at the same time?

Can someone explain to me why anyone idolises the Original Six?

My understanding is the Chicago and the Rangers have never met in the finals either.


Mostly because Chicago didn't make it very often.  They had a run when Hull was there, but not that long.

I'll be too focused on the game to join in the fun here tonight but I will enjoy reading everything tomorrow morning. Here's hoping to a great series! Go Bruins!!!
 
2013-06-12 03:18:11 PM  

kab: Bruins in...

Actually, never mind.   I thought we were a first round exit the way we played all through March, so being here at all is gravy.   I thought the Leafs would be somewhat easy, and that went 7.   The Rangers had me worried, and we got through them.   Few if any gave us a scrap of a chance against the Pens, and we absolutely dismantled them.

Hawks don't particularly worry me, but at this point if the B's get swept in the finals, I wouldn't be surprised at all.  You never know what's going to happen, so I'll just gonna sit back and relax, and enjoy the hockey.


This. I am a HUGE Bruins fan who basically gave up during R1G7. Been bonus hockey for me since.

Hoping for a great series, and some great hockey. This is good for Chicago, Boston, and the sport.

Course, I can, and probably will, develop some serious hate for the Chicago Blackhawks during the series, but that's to be expected.

So this is going to go down like the series with Detroit where we joke that Rask is going to make 50 saves and still lose the game

Or the double OT game against the Pens where he made 50 saves and won.

When Basketball Lawyer resigns (hopefully in a scandal involving underaged European male strippers and farm animals), we need a Commissioner that (1) actually has the best interest of the sport in mind, and (2) will grow a playoff beard every year.

Technically, that's true whether or not the Bruins win.


Yea. Eventually... but like I said tradition... Seems like the pair have been a bit of a good luck charm for the Bruins too...

Every time they've been posted the B's win since game 7 of round one.  I missed one game. In the second round.

Probably a 50% gray sky up by me...

and now there's a thunderclap, though the line of storms is still out in McHenry county.
