    Blue Jackets storm back in the third period, down 2 but the Bruins win 4-3. Exciting game none the less! Boston now 3-2 after five games. Back to Columbus for game six Monday.

    I think this may be the start of a beautiful rivalry between 2 Eastern Conference foes. Game 5 was an absolute war.

    The Blues showed up today and kicked the Stars around the rink. Game 7, straight ahead.

    Bruins end Blue Jacket's run in the playoffs with a 3-0 win in Columbus last night. Fans obviously disappointed, but the program is in good shape for the future in the NHL.:)

    What?....no Blues fans here? Man, after that prison rape in game 1, I honestly thought we were done. Once again we face a team that's faster, skates better, passes better, and aggressive as a 18 year old on prom night. But me thinks we have one of the best goalies around as the X factor.

    DA BLUES.

    Your GK gives you a chance every night you take the ice and that's a dangerous thing. Our cable was out for days so I've missed the first few games. It's fixed now so I'll be able to watch and participate more.

    Controversy again over replay and that goal last night in the Sharks win over the Blues. Replay apparently showed it was an illegal goal, but the way it happened is not on the list as being reviewable.

    That was a hand pass. I can't believe replay didn't overturn it.

    The official position is that their hands are tied! :p NHL rules don't allow for review of that particular thing. If refs don't catch it in real time, it didn't happen.

    That's a bad deal then because Ray Charles could have seen that was a hand pass.

    Whichever team survives the West has a tough chore ahead of them in the Bruins.
