Ya, it honestly annoys me a bit too. They have an asterisk, to me. 

There's no doubt the entire situation still required a Vegas collapse to happen, so in that sense Vegas still blew it, but there's no question that without that botched call, the Sharks don't win that series. It was over. 

Maybe it ultimately comes down to, "well, SOMEONE has to win it", and they've been winning since, but still. They should have been eliminated in the first round. 

Who ***** cares?! The entire Vegas existence has an asterisk. All two years of it. Welcome to the NHL. You got screwed. Get used to it. Go Sharks.

I’ll say it.

When Milbury isn’t doing a Bruin’s game, he’s a pretty good color guy.

And I’ll respectfully disagree. 👍🏼

Well I slept through the second period and half of the 3rd of Blues-Sharks.  Getting old I guess. 

Sharks have lots of skill.  

Blues have to do more than hit Karlsson or this will be over quick.  They also need to stay out if the box.

Timo Meir is really impressive as is Logan Couture.

 Binington - they need more from you.

Yep, even though the penalties in the first racked up, SJ was clearly the better team throughout. St Louis appeared to get off their game and just tried hitting, and only hitting. 

At this point, I just want the team that will smash Boston, to win.

I think my order of "want to win" is:

1. Boston

2. Carolina

3. St. Louis

4. San Jose

It's rather a mark of the teams left that I have the Bruins at 1.

My order of want to win

Sharks/ Blues

Bruins

Effin Canes.

It's a huge mark that I've been forced to abandon my doctrine of never rooting for a team to get their first cup because of the two vomitous teams left in the East.

It would be poetic if the Blues swept the Bruins for the cup.

Reversed, it's my order.  (Well, no.  I do want to see the SS meltdown when O'Reilly scores the Cup-winning goal.)

It will be interesting to see how the Carolina home ice hysteria impacts the team.  It was significant, I believe, in turning them around against the Caps after being down 2-0.

We will see, but it's a given that there will be significantly more Bruins fans here than there were Caps fans.

WTF, Blues.  I guess, if they take this series, at least they'll liberally apply hits to the head of Bruins as well.

Go Bruins. All weekday games in Raleigh will likely lessen the influx of massholes, but I still expect substantial swaths of black and gold at PNC arena.

hoping for a Bruins SWEEP!!

Bruins weather the storm. Rask on fire.

I’m now convinced the Bruins are winning the cup and Rask gets the Conn Smythe.

The East was better than the West all year, and has been dominating in the finals the last several. 

I see no reason why the Bruins won't steam-roll whoever comes out of the West.

Man, I really hate the Bruins,…

but I have to admit, they're a pretty good team,

and I like Brad Marchand,…

and I really like seeing R'd Br'nd'mor' squirm in the podium after the game.

***** that guy.

I echo every statement ... except the 3rd one. I can’t stand Marchand. And no, I’m not one of those “but I’d love him on my team” types. I’ve disliked him from the moment he hit the ice for the Bruins. Always will.

I sooo want STL or SJS to win the cup now.
