(NHL)   It's the Stanley Cup Playoffs game three, from Boston tonight... Can the Bruins build off the game two win? Is it the Blackhawks' turn to prove home ice means nothing? What's the under/over on overtime a third time? Puck drops at 8ET(ish)   (nhl.com) divider line 727

My prediction- Game 3 is a blowout.

One of these teams is going to explode for 6 goals sooner or later. No idea which one though.

I'm thinking that the Bruins are going to have a 3-1 or 4-1 game tonight and then the Hawks are going to adjust in game 4 and either take the game by a goal or lose it in OT.

That would be pretty freaking awesome if the Hawks had the 4-1 game tonight, but I'm just not that optimistic of a person.

I had kinda called game 2 for that... Now I'm not sure we'll see one..  maybe the last game.

Not sure if any other New Englanders caught Don Cherry on WEEI this morning but he was as awesome as usual.

I could see that as strange as this playoff season has been.  However I'd rather have yet another game that goes to OT, hell make them all OT games.

Did they make fun of him for being a hockey fan? Isn't that their usual response to hockey talk?

Can we just get a game that ends during regulation? If my city has to go through 7 overtime games, we're going to need more coffee.

Long too.  Holy shiat.

I'm going to predict Hawks win 4-3 in double OT.  These motherfarkers can't help but play bonus hockey.

Personally, I expect more tight games.  But if there were to be a blowout, I'd expect it from Chicago.  Boston seems to play hockey like an aikido master fights: excellent defence coupled with excellent skill at exploiting an opponent's mistakes, but not a whole lot of effective direct offence.  I don't see Boston blowing out Chicago unless Chicago loses its discipline in a big way.

2013-06-17 02:22:29 PM  
I'd like a high scoring game at least once.  Maybe like a 6-5 game.  Filled with fluke goals but still going to OT.
 
2013-06-17 02:57:15 PM  
Work is paying for me to watch the game at the Harp down on causeway street. I have to schmooze and badger some Frenchmen for more budget and resources after we've plied them with a few drinks. Good thing I'm a social alcoholic and can function quite well after a few or seven beers.

When the game starts tonight, these teams will already be working on 4 games worth of hockey.

Boston has not lost a game 3 in the playoffs. Chicago has not won a game 3 in the playoffs. As a cynical Bostonian, I'd say this is bad news.... for Boston.

Trying to decide between a quick nap or a run to the store for some more K-Cups, but I think the weather is going to decide for me. Rumbles in the distance and it just got wicked dahk out, like totaly wicked dahk.

I used to be (probably) the only one who streamed Felger on the fledgling ESPN radio station when he was on that.

EEI lost me when they would completely make fun of anyone who wanted to talk Bruins.

I know Gresh and Zo can be a pain in the ear to listen to, so I usually skip them with Rome or Mohr at 12:00 and go back to streaming the Hub at 2 when Fleger and Mazz come on.

But I find myself listening to G&Z a lot more when the B's are in the playoffs, because I can't stand 4 hours of incessant NBA slobbering from ESPN and FOX Sports radio. It angers me.

Such is life of a hockey fan stuck in South Florida.

I caught the end of Kelly Hrudey giving an interview on NHL Radio on XM this afternoon (they might have been airing Hockey Night in Canada Radio at the time) and he basically said these two teams are so even that you have to expect OT at this point. And I think he's right. The Cup will be won by whomever gets lucky last, basically.

While I wrote that, this popped up on my screen:

Strombone @strombone1
Nope....."@NHL: Remember when the @NHLBruins won all 3 home games they played during the 2011 #StanleyCup Final,outscoring the Canucks 17-3"

/we all know who Strombone is by now, right?

They really should do that. It's not like they're going to hurt attendance by doing that.
