Boston is back in a big way.

hopefully for them it wasn't just for one game. I said Nucks in 4 so I am wrong but I do want the series to go to 7 now.

LOL, ya I'm sure Boston is going to win the cup now :hehe:

Are you saying it's not possible for them to come back? We've seen it happen before.

I heard one of Boston's strategies going into the series is to slowly wear down the Canucks with their size. The more games in this series, the better it maybe for the Bruins. Vancouver may have to win this early.

I would think whoever wins Game 4 may win the series, Boston played two decent road games.

Damnnn, son!!!

Boston dun whooped yo asses!!!

Something I wanted to bring up though...

Was Boston scoring those last three being up 4 wrong or unsportsmanlike?

Obviously IMO, no. of course not.

BUT.... Remember just a few short years ago, my fellow Wings fans....

If the Wings were up by that much that late and then had the "nerve" to score another 3 goals, they would have been shredded and lambasted in the press and all around the internet as being unsportsmanlike, arrogant, showboats by daring to score more goals after they were obviously going to win it.

s***...I remember Kenny Daniels even saying things in his commentary during those type of games about how the Wings should just step back and do the "sportsmanlike" and "right" thing by stepping back and just playing defense, so as not to embarrass the other team by scoring more goals.

Obviously the Bruins were emotional this game though, and rightly so, but the ending of the game just made me think back a few years and think of all the flack, hate and ridicule the Wings would have taken if they had "dared" score another 3 on a team that was down by 4 and was obviously going to lose the game already.

My favorite play was the Thomas check. How often we see athletes make bad decisions. You could almost watch Thomas' thought process. He followed the puck and saw Sedin had it and it dawned on him, just bury him, it's just a legal check and solves the immediate problem.

Good hard hitting game, minus the few 'Nucks dives and the biting taunting horses***. Burrows and Lapierre are pieces of s***. The Boston PK was just unbelievable, or the Nucks PP was terrible. Dan Paille, Gregory Campbell, and Chris Kelly all played aggressively on the penalty kill and forced a ton of turnovers. Shawn Thornton brought a ton of energy and physicality. He was strong on the puck. The call on Aaron Rome was bogus. At most, a 2 minute penalty for interference, as it looked a little late. Maybe Horton won't admire his passes anymore. Hope he's alright, though. Roberta Lu8ngo looked like his normal self tonight.

Yeah, I ag........Wait, what the f*** did you just say???

I think you are mistaken and meant to say Recchi and Lucic, right? As those are the only two I saw doing the "biting taunting horses***" in this game. ;)

According to TSN Bob McKenzie: disciplinary hearing for Aaron Rome on Tuesday morning for hit on Horton

The hit by Rome was, it seems, the wakeup call the Bruins needed. I wasn't impressed with how Boston was playing before the hit. So, Vancouver decided to play the game like classless goons and they lost by 7 goals. Nice work! :thumbup:

I do wonder how Luongo is going to shake off the 8 goals he let in for the next game. Vigneault might have made a serious error by not pulling him out much earlier. But then he couldn't make his team play with any kind of discipline so I'm expecting way too much.

I doubt Rome will get suspended. The league will say they could find no conclusive evidence that a hit took place.

If I had any more room in my sig, this would be front and center. :clap: :clap: :clap:

When you get a lead and start playing conservative and "try" to take it easy, that's when you get hurt or cheapshotted. Score until you can't score anymore.

I say the same thing when a baseketball team or baseball team is up an ungodly amount, just keep scoring, it's not your duty to let up.

Boston put way too much emotion into this game, they won but they will not have the same mentality going into next game, Nucks are still better they played horribly tonight and i think they take the next 2 and finish the Bruins off.

The Sedins are such talented players, but a friggin embarrassment with their constant diving in the Stanley Cup finals. They only help justify the crap people say about European players in the NHL.

First video is funny, it's hilarious to see a goalie check a player.

Second video is hilarious even though Lucic is such a huge ******.

Third video is nasty. Late hit by a 6th/7th DMan. Horton's arms sticking up after the hit makes me nauseous. I get that he was admiring his pass, but you don't expect to get hit up high that late after a pass. I hope Rome is done for the playoffs and a couple games to start next season if he even makes the squad. Plus, if you're someone who says "maybe a 2 minute interference could have been called", then you are admitting it was late. That's like saying, "well it could have been called boarding or it could have been called holding", you're admitting there was a penalty. Plus, correct me if I am wrong, any interference that results in an injury to a player is to be upgraded to a major and up to the ref to eject the player?

edit: apparently you can't have that many media files, sorry for only hotlinking...

I agree that players should keep their heads up, but that hit was seriously late, and Horton makes his pass and is likely watching to make sure he stays onsides. Enough time has passed that you can see Horton taking quick strides starting to accelerate into the zone when he gets hit in the head.

Agreed should also be a suspension but all i am saying is be aware, its the SCF finals, hits are bigger and more frequent, adrenaline is pumping and players will not let up so always be aware and look out for yourself

Grapes blamed the hit on Lucic for taunting Rome, a player who doesn't make these kinds of hits and was too late on what could otherwise have been a completely legit hit. Loved all the finger biting taunts today, damned funny stuff even when Boston does it to Vancouver's players :hehe:

It's funny as I was rooting for Vancouver until they opted to be a bunch of goons (see Anaheim or San Jose). No matter what, that hit on Horton is late and he's the type of player that I love. Goes out and plays hard, smile on the face, etc. Rome is a bum and should be out for the rest of the Cup Finals. This is the type of hit whereby someone is going to get killed. :-( The size and speed of the players these days guarantees it.

We have a series now and we all gotta love a goaltender that lays one on the Captain like Thomas did to Sedin. Bravo Timmay. :-P

Yeah that was pretty funny :cool:

But imo, if goalies are to be immune to checks, they shouldn't be allowed to throw hits either.
