Bruins complaining?

Where's my electron microscope. I seem to have misplaced my atomic-scale violin.

they have each gotten similar soft calls. the timing of the isles on the PP has been about as advantageous as could be. last night they were getting played out of the building they get that soft slashing call and the pucks in the back of the net

Bruins cannot kill a penalty and thats on them. several blown clearing opportunities became goals.

Sure you have to kill off penalties, but this series has been funny in that very close in time or at least within a game we've seen the same penalty committed on both sides but with the call going the Isles' way.  And there was good reason and Cassidy mentioned it.  The Islanders are Montreal-level floppers.  You can't reward floppers.  It's bad almost any time, anywhere.  Except when you're dancing in Bedrock.

I will end this by saying...

Get rid of Rask and start Swayman.

You lost because Rask is hurt, and they are down two defensemen. Full stop. End of story. Done.

They will not win Game 6 if they start Rask.

They have about a 20% chance of winning if they start Swayman.

Go with the better option Bruce. I've gone to bat for you even before you were hired. Make me look good, brah.

I'm just enjoying the broadcasters gushing over the Isles indiscretions, like the knee-to-knee hit that was called "a savvy veteran move" or the cross-check to the head that was "boys being boys".

And I'm still pissed at the Bruins being penalized for Ritchie's elbow by being forced to keep Ritchie in the lineup for the rest of the night, that should be considered cruel and unusual punishment.

Big deal. Ice is cold, skates are sharp, and refs are passable at best. Until they make a call against you that your opponent takes advantage of. Then they're blind, incompetent boobs.

It's a fact of life in hockey.

That article was 10 paragraphs of Cassidy complaining that "we played the same way and didn't get as many calls OUR way" with the subject of TFH in the very last paragraph

"Also Tuesday, the league fined Bruins forward Nick Ritchie the maximum of $5,000 for elbowing Islanders defenseman Scott Mayfield in the first period of Game 5."

I haven't been watching this series, mostly because I hate Brad Marchand, but the Isles were the least-penalized team in the league this year, everybody in Boston is a whiner, and coaches trying to work the refs in a close series is a tale as old as time.  Didn't I see something about Trotz working the refs on Bergeron's face off skills just the other day?

Did you see Marchand get elbowed in the head with no call in game 4?  Because the refs and the league office both missed it, too.

I haven't watched any games since Toronto got eliminated in the first round(as is tradition).
