Onto overtime once again
   1102. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:00 PM (#4473718)
I guarantee Chicago will not give up another lead in this game.
   1103. zonk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:03 PM (#4473719)
This has been a fun series.
   1104. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:04 PM (#4473721)
So 3 OT's after a goal every 6 minutes during regulation? The Hawks have had some great chances but the Bruins continue to look far more dangerous.
   1105. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:06 PM (#4473722)
This has been a fun series.


Yeah, this is shaping up to be an all time classic Finals.
   1106. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:07 PM (#4473724)
Agreed scott, even the last game was close despote the score being 2-0 the nhl couldnt be any happier
   1107. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:08 PM (#4473725)
Crawford was just pathetic on the Boychuk goal. The kind of positioning you see when they let the 7 year-olds play in between periods.
   1108. Shredder Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:09 PM (#4473727)
I don't want the Hawks to win, but I would like to see this series go at least six. It's been a really good series for the NHL. If it goes seven, I'd love to see the ratings for that game.
   1109. SteveF Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:10 PM (#4473729)
Yeah. If you're a neutral fan you have to root for the Hawks this game I'd say. This would be a tough one for them to lose.
   1110. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:15 PM (#4473732)
I'm a bit afraid that if the Bruins win that the Hawks will fold up in Game 5. It will be 3 days of nothing but "Play Emery" articles. Those articles have already been written by now, but if it's 2-2 it is obviously a much different situation.
   1111. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:20 PM (#4473736)
Bruins getting a lot of pressure early in OT.
   1112. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:22 PM (#4473738)
Looks a lot like the OT in Game 2.
   1113. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:23 PM (#4473739)
####### PUT THE PUCK IN THE ####### NET!
   1114. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:28 PM (#4473741)
Really nice backcheck by Sharp on that 3 on 2.
   1115. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:30 PM (#4473742)
Yeah, the Hawks have settled down a lot from the start of OT, the Bruins haven't been nearly as threatening.
   1116. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:30 PM (#4473744)
And blatant interference by Krug, so I guess we're at the no more penalties part of the game.
   1117. zack Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:31 PM (#4473746)
Seabrook likes to score in overtime.
   1118. zonk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:31 PM (#4473747)
Whew!

That's probably more an escape than a win, but it still counts.
   1119. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:31 PM (#4473748)
Woo Hawks
   1120. The Ghost's Tryin' to Reason with Hurricane Season Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:32 PM (#4473749)
I was just thinking, one little thing can win it. F@@k.
   1121. Langer Monk Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:32 PM (#4473750)
As a neutral, I cannot wait for a Game 7 in a week that also goes into OT. Good stuff.
   1122. Shredder Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:33 PM (#4473751)
Man, really bad goaltending in this game.
   1123. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:33 PM (#4473752)
Goddamnit. I guess I can't complain much, given that the Bruins were lucky to make it to overtime after going down by two goals twice.
   1124. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:33 PM (#4473753)
Next time someone trashes Toews for not being a great player in the playoffs, show them the replay of him manhandling Chara to clear the lane for that shot.
   1125. The Kentucky Gentleman, Mark Edward Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:33 PM (#4473754)
All Brent Seabrook Does Is Score Goals In Overtime.
   1126. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:34 PM (#4473757)

Seriously. This has been some great hockey.
   1127. Snowboy Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:44 PM (#4473762)
What a good game from Toews.
Even-steven, best two out of three now. I'm glad we'll see two more games.
   1128. Bull Pain Posted: June 19, 2013 at 11:52 PM (#4473768)
With the way this series is going, it's a good thing both of these classic teams have won the cup recently after long droughts. If this was the Red Sox-Cubs in 2003, one set of fans would kill themselves when they lost. I'm a lifelong Hawks fan, but since we have one in the bag, I can certainly live with the Bruins winning the Cup (the players that is, not their POS owner.) I do have a huge soft spot for the squad that caused Vancouver to burn.
   1129. zack Posted: June 20, 2013 at 01:02 AM (#4473788)
This was pretty funny. You couldn't pick a worse spotif you were trolling.
   1130. zack Posted: June 20, 2013 at 02:45 AM (#4473802)
Since I was on the phone and accidentally missed a couple goals, I went back and reviewed them in detail, just to see what happened.

Handzus, 1-0 Chicago: Perfect 2 on 1. On the PK, Saad steals the puck from the point, races into a 2 on 1*, Handzus rips a one-timer literally from the right hash. Scott thought Rask misplayed this one, but on the replay Saad gets position on Chara after making the area pass, so Rask had to cheat for the pass. I think this makes it unsaveable, especially considering it hit both pipes.

Peverly, 1-1 Tied: Direct wrist shot. On the PP, from the faceoff, Saad rings it around to the weak side to clear the zone. Ference makes an amazing sliding keep-in that I didn't notice live. He chips it in, it bounces off Saad and then Saad wiffs and in the process falls down right as he's about to clear it again. Peverly collects and wrists from the top of the circle, no deflection or traffic in front. Crawford is caught in between, never even goes out or down, but it would have been a highlight-reel save.

Toews, 2-1 Chicago: Point shot tip-in. Looong lead pass from the goal line to the Bruins blue line leaves a 3 on 3. Toews shoots across the net, it bounces out to space where Rozsival can skate right into the drive. Chara and Bickell get tied up and Chara is lying to the side of the net when the shot comes. Rask is looking to the wrong side of Bickell and Boychuk screening him, and Lucic who was on Toews just float away from him for now apparent reason, leaving an easy deflection. If Rask looks around the other side of the screen maybe he can get a piece, but this is probably as close as you can get to a P(G)=1 situation.

Kane, 3-1 Chicago: Rebound goal. Kane cycles it back to Rozsival with the Bruins all collapsed very low after the rush. He blasts it, hurting Seidenberg who blocks it. Bickell comes in from the boards and Ference lets him go in order to clear Toews from the crease. Bickell shoots from the slot and Rask kicks it out directly to Kane who backhands it in. Again, pretty much unsaveable, the rebound was bad but it was good to even save the first one.

Lucic, 3-2 Chicago: Rebound goal. Oduya tried to ring it around, but it's weak and Chara intercepts it at the half wall. He has a clear lane to the net and wrists it, I think Lucic might have got a piece. The rebound off Crawford's pads drops right to Lucic and he forks it in immediately. Pretty awful defense all around for Chicago, Lucic walked right into the slot and stood there, but he's not exactly the easiest guy to clear. For Crawford, bad rebound but that's why Chara shot it low. Pretty much unsaveable.

Kruger, 4-2 Chicago: Even better 2 on 1. Bolland makes a nice bounce pass to catch the Bruins on a 2 on 1. Kruger makes the early dish across to Frolik**, Chara lays out to block the pass too soon and Frolik nicely reaches the pass around him. Kruger recieves nearly at the far blue paint, but goes backhand instead of for the redirect. Rask SOMEHOW manages to save it even though he's going completely the wrong direction, like his skates are magnetized to the post, but the puck drops dead at the post and Kruger manages to tap it in before inertia drags him away. I guess it wasn't unsaveable since Rask did save it at first, but just doing that was miraculous so it can't be on him. The whole thing is caused by a bad misread pinch by Seidenberg and both Bergeron and Marchand giving up on the backcheck. They couldn't have stopped a one-timer, but may have been able to clear the second chance.

Bergeron, 4-3 Chicago: You've seen this one. The hockey gods are angry with Crawford. Oduya could have got position on Bergeron, but tracking a puck bouncing off the shelf is kind of hard. Unsaveable.

Bergeron, 4-4 Tied: Sweet one-timer off the cycle. Everyone will blame Oduya for this, and he didn't exactly play it well, but really I'd blame Bolland. Jagr and Bergeron work Oduya because Bolland is just kind of spinning in circles. The he loses Bergeron completely and Jagr makes a sweet feed to him just inside the left circle and he rips the one timer in. Frolik nearly blocks it, but it just straight up beats Crawford to his left. A great shot and not an easy save by any means, but I think most goalies wouldn't want that one on their resume.

Sharp, 5-4 Chicago: Rebound tip-in. On the PP, Sharp dishes from the goal line back to Hossa top-center. He one touches with Keith then one timers. Rask drops the rebound right to Sharp who scores. A garbage goal, Rask probably wants that back also but Sharp is great at slipping in on the back door and it was a low, hard shot. If it's on anyone, it's Seidenberg since Sharp walks in behind him, but that's why goals are scored on powerplays, there aren't enough guys.

Boychuck, 5-5 Tied: Point shot with no business being a goal. Literally 4 Bruins and 4 Blackhawks are battling on the half boards. Kruger and Bolland are on either side of Horton when he gets a pass out of the scrum. Bolland goes to him, leaving Boychuck the entire left half of the zone all to himself. Boychuck takes a few steps in and rips a 55 footer. Just as the puck is shot, 2011-12 Crawford Quantum Leaps into his current body and therefore has no idea how to save a shot late in a playoff game.

Seabrook, 6-5 Finally: Screened(?) point shot. Weird play in transition. Hawks come in 3 on 4, Kane shoots low angle and Rask kicks the rebound out to Bickell. His shot is blocked but bounces right to Seabrook at the key. He skates around Jagr who is standing still. There are two Bruins in line with Seabrook, and Rask is peeking around to the outside, so I guess they were screening him trying to block it. Toews outworks Chara to keep the inside lane open and Seabrook hits it.


So for Rask, he gave up 6 goals, 4 of which are absolutely not on him. The fifth was more arguable, but a very difficult save. The sixth was saveable, I thought his choice in which direction to peek was odd but Seabrook was moving that way and if he couldn't see him, maybe that's the right guess. Chara had a horrible defensive game, maybe the worst I've ever seen from him.

For Crawford, 5 goals against, only 2 were absolutely not his fault, of which one was a fluke bounce. Two more were unscreened one-timers from the circles, not great goals to give up but difficult saves, though both were near side so he wasn't moving across. One was horrible. Oduya and Bolland had poor games contributing directly to multiple goals.


*How the hell did Handzus beat Bergeron back here? He had maybe a half-step lead when they started skating, and he pulled away to score.
**I wish they'd do this more often. If you make the early pass, you can turn it around immediately before the d-man is set, or if he goes down like Chara did you have room to go past him without running out of space. I've been really impressed by Kruger's vision. He doesn't get much ice time and is saddled with ridiculous assignments but he makes a couple neat little plays every game.

Jesus that was a lot longer than I was expecting. Even I don't want to read that wall of text.
   1132. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: June 20, 2013 at 07:17 AM (#4473830)
I mean, it's something to watch on nights the NBA finals isn't on, right?

Just kidding...good stuff, even for this hockey hater of sorts. In fact, other than Game 6, the NBA finals have been spectacularly boring compared to this.
   1133. The Ghost's Tryin' to Reason with Hurricane Season Posted: June 20, 2013 at 10:18 AM (#4473918)
zack, I enjoy your analysis. I read every word. Others have the option to scan or just read parts of interest to them.
   1134. Brian C Posted: June 20, 2013 at 10:41 AM (#4473946)
Yeah, great analysis, Zack.

It's always fun to watch replays of hockey goals because there's typically so much more going on than I see as it happens live. Eddie Olczyk is usually really good about breaking these things down during Hawks broadcasts, but he can be a little more hit and miss on national broadcasts (during local broadcasts, he doesn't need to waste time with Pierre McGuire, and Pat Foley gets out of his way for actual analysis more than Emrick does).
   1135. HMS Moses Taylor Posted: June 20, 2013 at 10:51 AM (#4473952)
Good post, zack.

Peverly, 1-1 Tied: Direct wrist shot. On the PP, from the faceoff, Saad rings it around to the weak side to clear the zone. Ference makes an amazing sliding keep-in that I didn't notice live. He chips it in, it bounces off Saad and then Saad wiffs and in the process falls down right as he's about to clear it again. Peverly collects and wrists from the top of the circle, no deflection or traffic in front. Crawford is caught in between, never even goes out or down, but it would have been a highlight-reel save.

Last night, I thought this was one Crawford should have had. But since Crawford apparently has a giant hole (about a foot above his glove and a foot below) and that's where the Bruins are aiming for (3 goals there last night, the OT winner in game 2, plus others), it's not surprising. I'd have to see it again, but I don't think it'd have to be that hard of a stop.

Bergeron, 4-4 Tied: Sweet one-timer off the cycle. Everyone will blame Oduya for this, and he didn't exactly play it well, but really I'd blame Bolland. Jagr and Bergeron work Oduya because Bolland is just kind of spinning in circles. The he loses Bergeron completely and Jagr makes a sweet feed to him just inside the left circle and he rips the one timer in. Frolik nearly blocks it, but it just straight up beats Crawford to his left. A great shot and not an easy save by any means, but I think most goalies wouldn't want that one on their resume.

See, I thought this was a much harder save than the other one. This was a one timer in a perfect spot; Crawford had time to react to Peverly's.

I do agree 3 of the goals are on Crawford, but I guess differ on which ones. Last night was the first time I think Rask clearly outplayed him, but the OT winner was a bad one to give up. Either Chara is hurt (very possible) or the Hawks have figured out ways to beat him. The faceoffs turned around, which was a big help.
   1136. The Ghost's Tryin' to Reason with Hurricane Season Posted: June 20, 2013 at 11:29 AM (#4473983)
"But since Crawford apparently has a giant hole (about a foot above his glove and a foot below) and that's where the Bruins are aiming for (3 goals there last night, the OT winner in game 2, plus others), it's not surprising."

They certainly focus on his glove side. Even I noticed this.
   1137. Shredder Posted: June 20, 2013 at 03:14 PM (#4474204)
Just found out that if this goes seven, I'll almost certainly have to go to the White Sox game that night for a work thing. There will roughly three people in attendance that night.
   1138. HMS Moses Taylor Posted: June 20, 2013 at 03:47 PM (#4474229)
Sounds like just about every other Sox game.
   1139. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 20, 2013 at 03:50 PM (#4474233)
Shredder something tells me if it goes to game 7 you may be able to escape, and at least they have tvs there.
   1140. zack Posted: June 20, 2013 at 03:54 PM (#4474236)
Doug Wilson re-signs the chief punk of the league for 3 years, $2 million per and my respect for him drops further.
   1141. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 21, 2013 at 01:24 PM (#4475133)
Shredder, it shall be Jose Macias! one of my pet hates from those teams
   1142. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 21, 2013 at 02:14 PM (#4475197)
I really liked the breakdown too, and I think I was wrong about the first goal being on Rask.

Looking forward to Saturday night!
   1143. HMS Moses Taylor Posted: June 21, 2013 at 03:15 PM (#4475266)
I really liked the breakdown too, and I think I was wrong about the first goal being on Rask.

That goal is 50% on the guy with the turnover and 50% on the guy that old, slowass Handzus beat down the ice. I forget who each one was now.
   1144. HMS Moses Taylor Posted: June 21, 2013 at 05:58 PM (#4475440)
I'm amused that the Rangers and Canucks have pretty much "traded" coaches. Also, Ruff in Dallas.

I don't know if it's better or worse (and this year, it's not impacting me at all) that the NHL continues as with business as usual during the Cup, as opposed to every other league putting everything on hold (well, for the most part, unstopping Celtics rumors aside).
   1145. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 04:19 PM (#4475834)
through 4 games the series is averging over 5 million viewers. its the most watched ever (data only goes back to 94)
   1146. Snowboy Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:25 PM (#4475918)
The Bruins were the first professional sports franchise to retire a player's number (1934, Lionel Hitchman's #3, who as a D man was Eddie Shore's partner, and captained the Bruins to their first Stanley Cup in 1929.)

Brothers Phil and Tony Esposito both had their numbers retired: Phil's #7 by Boston, and Tony's #35 by Chicago.
   1147. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:40 PM (#4475922)
Jaromir Jagr looks like an old wolf on the ice with that grey muzzle.
   1148. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:50 PM (#4475925)
Rask was beat up high. If sharpe gets a bit higher its in
   1149. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:50 PM (#4475926)
When they showed him smirk after he drove the net he looked exactly like a vampire flaring his fangs.

Playing like game 3 so far.
   1150. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:53 PM (#4475928)
How is that not interference on Mcquaid, twice? He checks Kruger into Rask without the puck, then grabs him off him.
   1151. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:53 PM (#4475929)
Damnit. That's just horrible luck there for the Bruins.
   1152. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:54 PM (#4475930)
And I missed the goal while typing that. Lesson learned, don't whine about officiating in the playoffs.
   1153. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:56 PM (#4475932)
And yet they call that.
   1154. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 08:58 PM (#4475933)
"Hammered by Patrick Kane" is not a phrase that is used very often, unless you're talking about beers or drunk coeds.
   1155. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:01 PM (#4475934)
Chicago up 1-0 on a literally lucky break off Seidenberg's stick and a good putback by Kane.
   1156. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:04 PM (#4475935)
Boston is lucky to be down only 1-0 right now. Hawks seemed to control most of the period.
   1157. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:21 PM (#4475939)
The Bruins had 3 more shots on goal and 1 more scoring chance. It was a pretty even first period.
   1158. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:21 PM (#4475940)
What the #### was that, Chara?
   1159. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:23 PM (#4475941)
How did the hawks get a penalty there?
   1160. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:23 PM (#4475942)
You have got to be kidding me. A diving minor in the ####### cup finals? They don't even call that in the regular season!

He went down easy sure but it was far from the worst dive of the series.
   1161. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:23 PM (#4475943)
I probably wouldn't have given that penalty on Handzus. I guess they really don't want to become the NBA.
   1162. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:23 PM (#4475944)
Thats a horse #### call by the refs there should be a hawks pp
   1163. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:24 PM (#4475945)
That was a too few players on the ice! COME ON.

Blame Handzus for being a soccer player.
   1165. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:28 PM (#4475948)
Nice friggin' play. TOP SHELF WHERE MOMMA KEEPS THE COOKIES!
   1166. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:29 PM (#4475949)
Ugh. Rask didn't know where that puck was after the first shot.
   1167. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:30 PM (#4475950)
No Frogger, no!
   1168. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:31 PM (#4475951)
Boarding and a check feom behind there
   1169. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:34 PM (#4475952)
Chicago is dominating Boston right now.
   1170. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:36 PM (#4475953)
Did Bergeron tweak his back? That's kind of what it looked like from that replay.

My cat is sitting in front of the TV begging for dinner. WAIT FOR THE PERIOD BREAK GOD.
   1171. Jose Can Still Seabiscuit Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:39 PM (#4475956)
Looked like a back injury to me.

Bruins aren't playing badly but they're generating no attack. They just aren't giving Crawford any trouble right now.
   1172. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:39 PM (#4475957)
Stalberg is Hossa'ing guys this game. Clearly scratching him for no reason worked.

They just aren't giving Crawford any trouble right now


They're doing (for the last five mintues) what the media was accusing the hawks of after game 3.
   1173. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:40 PM (#4475958)
One hell of a hit on towes there
   1174. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:41 PM (#4475960)
Really good team defense by Chicago.

So they like to say that teams follow the example of the previous cup winner. If the hawks win, will teams go out and make their powerplays garbage?
   1177. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:52 PM (#4475967)
Hawks just copied LA...
   1178. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:54 PM (#4475968)
Nah, they were into it before it was cool.

The last couple minutes has been the first sustained offense the Bruins have had all period. They really need to show something else to have any prayer at salvaging this game.
   1180. Bull Pain Posted: June 22, 2013 at 09:59 PM (#4475970)
Obviously hiring Kompon to turn your PP to shite is the best way to win the cup.

So what was the reason for not playing Bickell-Toews-Kane in the first 3 games? What was the reason for benching Stalberg for Bollig in two home games? The Hawks are playing great in spite of the coaching.
   1181. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:05 PM (#4475971)
Color me surprised that Mike Milbury's solution for the Bruins to get back in this game is "hit somebody".
   1182. Snowboy Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:15 PM (#4475975)
Sometimes "hit somebody" means "hit somebody".
But sometimes it means backcheck and compete for the puck. Boston isn't doing that very well today. They're often not skating back hard, they're doing a lots of standing around in their own end waving their sticks, and they're not winning the battles for loose pucks. On Chicago's second goal, Lucic made the mistake of "trying to hit somebody" for the sake of hitting somebody, and ended up being basically still behind the net when as the puck crossed centre going the other way. Horton's backcheck didn't show a lot of effort on Bickell, but Krejci's floating back was even worse, and let Kane be unmarked out front.

EDIT: Oh, not that I am defending Milbury. I didn't hear his comments, or any other context.
   1183. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:17 PM (#4475976)
I think Q put the line blender on "puree" again.
   1184. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:19 PM (#4475977)
Good. This game isn't over yet.
   1185. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:23 PM (#4475978)
Dammit Q, you can't trap a 1 goal lead for 15 minutes. Keep the pedal down.

Hopefully Toews doesn't have brown brain from that Boychuck hit.
   1186. Bull Pain Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:23 PM (#4475979)
That was a nasty pass/one-timer. No Bergeron, no Toews.
   1187. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:25 PM (#4475980)
Seeing the hit on towes again it was pretty dirty he aimed high and got the head. Towes hasbt seen the ice yet this period
   1188. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:28 PM (#4475981)
Uh, it didn't get his head.
   1189. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:30 PM (#4475983)
Watch the replay he got his head with that hit
   1190. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:32 PM (#4475984)
Yeah, he got a forearm shiv on the head. Hopefully neither Toews or Bergeron are out for the next game, they're both tremendous and similar players. But they just said Bergeron was taken to the hospital.
   1191. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:33 PM (#4475985)
Bosrons best move right now is crap after the whistle...
   1192. Snowboy Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:34 PM (#4475986)
Now Chicago is standing around in their own end.
And when they do get the puck, they are not skating it out.
With Toews out, the lines are scrambled, and they seem to have lost the plan.
   1193. Bull Pain Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:35 PM (#4475987)
If Seabrook had an OT goal for every 20 times he's iced the puck in the playoffs...
   1194. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:35 PM (#4475988)
I watched the replay twice, and I could have sworn it got his shoulder.
   1195. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:37 PM (#4475989)
He hits Toews in the nape but has his elbows up and they skip off the nape and nail him in the back of the head.

Edit: Screencap.

   1196. Snowboy Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:47 PM (#4475990)
Ooooh Jagr!!!!
How is that not in???
   1197. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:48 PM (#4475991)
Yeah, I don't know. Ugh.

And man, I can't trust my lying eyes.
   1198. The Clarence Thomas of BBTF (scott) Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:52 PM (#4475996)
Good game. Now to see if the Bruins can force game 7.
   1199. odds are meatwad is drunk Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:53 PM (#4475997)
Great game by the hawks just dominated the last 5 of the third boston could do nothing
   1200. zack Posted: June 22, 2013 at 10:54 PM (#4475998)
I still think, as I always have, that they're playing on Wednesday.

Hopefully not a pyrrhic victory re: Toews.
