Oh yeah and where's that "Do Leafs fans  deserve better' thread that was floating around here during the lockout? It could be useful tonight. They have closed the bridges in Toronto.

He has always been overrated.

 

Phaneuf is hugely arrogant and somewhat dumb. Only an idiot like Wilson could give him the captaincy.

Holy shift. Boston just completed the first truly epic comeback of the 2013 playoffs. Wow! 

 

Poor Toronto. This is what happens when you don't have a real #1 goaltender.

Unbelievable.  I mean, nobody was really giving them a chance to win this series, but with a two goal lead and under two minutes to play... losing is inexcusable.

 

They actually had a 3 goal lead in the 2nd half of the 3rd period. That seems worse  :lol:

I honestly dunno if you can really place much of the blame on Reimer...The Leafs in front of him started playing poorly half-way thru the 3rd period, and more or less left him hanging.

 

IMHO this series went to game 7 courtesy of Reimer.

I dont care if he has an IQ of 10, if he can burry a puck at the game and come home to ^^^ and bury something else, hes got a right  to be pretty damn cocky.

I'm gonna say the Bruins will outlast the Leafs in 7. Classic Original 6 matchup.

Good thing we aren't them, right? We flirted with that fate 3 times, but managed to avoid it each time. (game 2, game 6, game 7 to a lesser extent)

 

That has to be the worst feeling for the leafs and their fans... I cant even imagine.

 

Tuuka Rask narrowly avoided being dumped this offseason IMO. During the game I was wondering if they would go after Luongo this summer. (Rask let philly come back from 3-0 and almost let Toronto come back from 3-1)



 

Called it.  :shifty:

So did I! I picked B's in 7 on the bracket challenge

Absolutely devastating end to this series for the Leafs.  To be down 3 games to 1, make a dramatic comeback, be winning 4-1 with 10 min left in Game 7, 4-2 with 90 seconds left and lose is more than anyone should have to handle.  If something like that happened to the Wings, I would feel gutted like someone in my family died.  Really feel bad for their fan base.

Any suspension for Kelly's brutal elbow that drew blood all over the face of Reimer? Or is that apart of keeping the players safe?
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By "Reimer," do you mean "Van Riemsdyk?"

 

If you're talking about the play that I think you are, it could easily be 2 minutes the other way for . . . well, what exactly do you call tackling a guy away from the play, then laying down on him, preventing him from trying to backcheck what appeared to be an odd-man rush developing for Toronto? I think that's pretty much the dictionary definition of interference. Should have been a power play for the Bruins. Kelly losing his cool negates the power play. Give the guy an extra 2 for drawing blood, and maybe it's a 2-minute power play for Toronto. JVR was asking for trouble. Shame on Kelly for indulging him, but let's not make it sound like the Leafs are skating Mother Theresas.

 

That play worked to Boston's advantage, sure. But if the refs were out to get Toronto, they were doing a lousy job of it. See the roughing penalty on Lucic for (unsuccessful) instigation . . . which was no more and no less than Orr's strategy v Chara in the first period. Not to mention that Toronto is every bit as physical as Boston. Maybe more so. It wasn't the Leafs who were short 3 of their top-6 defensemen in game 7.

Talk about epic failure by the Leafs. This is why you don't let up in the 3rd period, never gotten why teams do it and will continue to do it. Play hard and don't let up. Nice job by the Bruins to not quite or give up and show why they have won a cup in the past.

I think it boils down to being an inexperienced Toronto squad...They had the Bruins on the ropes, but a lack of experience, and confidence on behalf of the Leafs allowed the Bruins to getting back into the game.



I'm gonna dvr the game on NESN this afternoon...I gotta admit to having a "soft-spot" for the Bruins, and I like that Jack Edwards.
