Blues look tuned up in the first period. Boston a bit sluggish. I grew up as an Orr fan. Hoping for a good series.

Just one helluva game! The Blues ended up with a few stupid penalties that cost them dearly.

I don't really care about hockey, but reigning football / baseball / hockey champs has a nice "ring" to it.... :)

Penalties will be the death of us in this series. I think every game will be close but for the blues to win thye need to not give any power plays out. I think we end up going 7 games and the right now 50/50 chance of who takes it.

I’ve become a Caps fan over the years too. That’s due in part to my son being a hockey player & huge Ovechkin & Caps fan. A few years ago we had the opportunity to chat w/ Dennis Maruk (former Caps’ great). Maruk was very humble & a cool guy to shoot the breeze with.

Needless to say that I’m disappointed there won’t be a repeat this year. Anybody remember the brutal hit that Orpik laid on Mata a few years back?

I don’t have an interest in this year’s winnr, but I’d like to see Chara light up the gun w/ another incredible slap shot! I’m not asking for much, just 108+!

That looks like it would hurt. A lot. Ill give him props for walking off the ice under his own steam, - which is more than I can say for Olli Maata, LOL.

What’s really cool is he came back and sat on the bench just to support his teammates. That’s great leadership. There’s a reason he’s one of the most feared and respected players in the league.

Interesting Cup for sure but it was oblivious the Blues were a better team straight up hockey. Bruins relied too much on the powerplay. That late first period goal in game 7 squashed the Bruins. They had no desire left.

Hows the party in STL?
