I'm a band-wagon Bruin fan.

As you are a band-wagon Flyer troll.

Except I'm not a troll-asshole like you.

I suddenly became a pro-hockey fan when Bruin games were broadcast on UHF TV in the mid-60s.  And everyone needed the round antenna to watch Bobby Orr.

Before that I was a kid that played hockey (so-so-never mastered skating backwards) for maybe 6 or so weeks a year on local ponds and the Charles.

I wouldn't call it Bruins v Blues a rematch as it took place 49 years ago, but it almost seems like yesterday, and it gave us one of the more iconic sports photos.

A great goal. An amazing picture.

But... the Bruins were up 3-0 in the series. That OT goal clinched the sweep. The Blues were never in that series.

Yup that series was over before it started.

The photo of Orr soaring in truimph was the thing. It became iconic, and joined other special moments, and taking a parochial view Fisk waiving the ball fair. Less parochial Willis Reed's walk-on, Maz's 9th inning walk-off, Kirk Gibson, Tyree's horse-shoe up his ass catch...

https://youtu.be/8Zmb0ey-4tM (https://youtu.be/8Zmb0ey-4tM)

It was a great come from behind series win for the Flyers and a terrible choke job by the Bruins, for all that I didn't watch it.

But it's really sad that your fond memories of the Flyers are at best a year when they lost the Cup, 4-2. The Flyers were such a promising franchise when they got going in the 70s. Who knew that 44 years later they would not have won another Cup, passed by such johnny-come-latelies like the Islanders, Devils, and Oilers.

I suppose "Glory Days" is an appropriate song for you, Ham.

The Flying Orr might have to move over a little for the Flying Krug.

they played a very physical and game and wore out the Bruins and eventually cashed in OT

onto St Looey

Gryzelyk hit being characterized as s "dirty hit". Hardly. And far more within the biunds if hockey than the heralded Krug hit from Game 1.

The first line of the Bruins is being called out for underperforming.



Title: Re: NHL

You didn't watch either game.

Or don't know the game.

Your ingorance is evident.

krug's hit was hard but clean/borderline open ice hit. He didn't leave his feet or go high. It might have been a charge.

But play-off hockey.

and the refs didn't blew the whistle when he got mugged in front of the net just before....

play-off hockey.

Grz was face to glass "defeneless", and took an elbow/shoulder to the head.

A minor penalty was called. Grz is on conc, protocol. He might be out for games/series.

It was a dangerous shot to his head.

There will be a hearing today to see whether a suspension is warranted.

Bruins 1st line has been terrible so far.

"Blues center Ivan Barbashev has been suspended one game for an illegal check to the head, the NHL department of player safety announced Friday.

No penalty was called on the play.

“Barbashev delivers a high, forceful hit that makes Johansson’s head the main point of contact on a hit where such head contact was avoidable,” the league said in a video. “It is important to note that the head is the main point of contact on this play.”

It already took place. It seems after Game 3 Blues Coach Berube wept about his team being unfairly targeted for targeting Bruins heads, so he appealed to the league and won his appeal. The Bruins appealed as well, thinking head-hunting and slew foots have always been penalties.

The hearing is scheduled for early July.

Congratulations to the St. Louis Blues and their fans on their first ever Stanley Cup!!

I cannot imagine how exciting it must be for them, though I would guess it is similar to, but slightly stronger than, how we Red Sox fans felt after exorcising the Curse or how the Patsies fans felt upon winning that first Super Bowl in their history.

It has been a convincing effort by the Blues and they have earned this Cup.

Heh

You show all the grace of the average warthog.

I don't know how you conclude that they choked, given the rest of the series and the rest of the Cup matches, but honestly, Ham, I don't really care, because reasoning has nothing to do with it beyond that it was a Boston team. Had they won, you would have been back with "that was how the NHL wanted it" the way you did a couple games ago. Now that that has been disproven, you fall back on "choked."

Had they won, the person who would have choked would have been you, on all the bile you have inside.

Had we been a minute behind your post, you would have talked about our lack of being good losers and then when we posted identical things to what we posted, you would have claimed credit for making us say crap we didn't believe.

Your schtick is old and getting older. You lack creativity in your gratuitous attacks as surely as you lack substance. Your approach to Boston is the equivalent of Ward's approach to politics. Trite, trivial, and about as clever as a rock.

Dull, Hamilton. The only time you leave dull is when you cross into personally threatening stuff. Even then, the content and intent are dull, but you are enough of a loose cannon that no responsible person with folks he cares about can ignore you.

Which is what you crave - attention. "Pay attention to me! I am significant!"

You are only significant in your own mind, and even then you aren't convinced of it.

Go find the half a clue you used to have, but lost.

All the time.

The big play in that game was the 2nd goal on a brain-fart by Marchand with 10 seconds to go in the period.

The Blues, up 2-0, then played in a defensive shell for the next 40 minutes, protecting the lead, and frustrating the Bruins.

They won.

And the home team lost 5 of the 7 games in the series.

Home ice has meant nothing all series long for both teams and the Blues' road record was better than their home record or the Bruin's home record in the playoffs.

I've seen you criticise the Bruins for bitching about the refs, when it was the Blues coach who did that after Game 3, and successfully, and it changed the nature of the series. I've seen you rationalzie head-hunting, and then I've seen you accuse the league for fixing the series for the Bruins.

Troll you are a know-nothing idiot.

And in your latest bit  of idiocy you once again expose an utter lack of knowledge of the game and how to play it. Why woluld the Bruins chose to play an inheritantly physical style against a team that had a huge advantage in size? It would be playing to thei Blues strength. The Bruins had skill and speed and a better PP and PK as their advantages and they tried to leverage those advantages.
 
But they lost in Game 7 to a hot goalie who probably stole at least 3-4 goals from them.

But as you you didn't watch the series these facts escaped you.

And troll playing Nok-Hockey in jr college in your official Philly Flyer replica Dave Schultz T-shirt does not make you a hockey player.
