Go Bruins. They've got a great blend of finesse and snarl, as they have for several years, now. The team is full of guys that go the extra mile to fearlessly block shots, etc.

We probably won't see Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell running around like they did against us.

Hopefully Boston can shut down Chicago's top guys, just like they did to Pittsburgh.

Boston fan from North Boston called up Chicago station today after they had a Boston radio guy on. Was hilarious. He basically was calling out Chicago radio guys for trying to trump up the story that the Hawks were the Cinderella team. Boston definitely plays better as underdog so its in their interest not to let Chicago try to take that, but from every other logical metric, no way Chicago could try to play the victim/under appreciated/underdog when they have been arrogant d-bags all year with their silly streak (asterisk) and best record.

Chicago media and the Chicago fans are morons. 

 

Chicago was the undisputed number one in the league this season by a country mile, killed everyone in the regular season, and was predicted to trounce everyone and take the cup easily with no questions asked....

 

And yet every round they try to claim they are the poor widdle underdogs.  Its just getting ridiculous at this point.

im not sure why others perceive the national anthem as disrespectful in chicago, i think it is one of the coolest things in sports. I like in chicago so ive been to my fair share of the games and the emotion you get from it great. also it was definitely started in response to desert storm, not sure about the year.


I think that the series will be really tight but that the bruins pull it out because they can play that tight hard fought game better than the hawks.

I am not solely biased against Chicago, I personally dislike any venue/sport/team when the cheering has been starting earlier and earlier before end of anthem. I guess its just my personal opinion on the anthem. You can't get any earlier than when Chicago starts, so obviously they have most of my hate for it.

Chicago was one goal away from being eliminated by a 7th seed team who was duct-taped together, made the playoffs in the last game of the season, and who had 5-6 starting rookies in their line up.

I have a feeling Boston may bring the hurt to the Hawks. Chicago may want to dress Carcillo.

Apparently Brandon Bollig skated on the 4th line during their last practice. Stalberg was the extra forward. It would be wise for Q to dress Bollig, seeing as how Boston will definitely come out banging the body.

Disagree. Stalberg is a big boy, Q should just instruct him to play like a wrecking ball and not worry about the post whistle stuff. Boston are gonna lay on the body shift after shift, game after game, and won't be dropping the mits. Not in the finals. Bollig is no Shawn Thornton, he'll see 4-6 minutes in the first half of the game, and none in the second half. Now, all the same, more power to Chicago putting in yet another potential stupid penalty into their line-up. I don't see this series lasting very long for the Hawks.

Bollig knows his role and plays it well. Stalberg has struggled immensely. I can't imagine Bollig getting a ton of ice time, but he'll provide the physical presence that Chicago will need to play against Boston.

Bollig may not be as versatile of an enforcer as Shawn Thornton, but he's no slouch.

Olczyk insists he has the same approach with Emrick as he does with Pat Foley. He admits there might be a bit more "shtick" as far as nicknames and other banter during local telecasts of Hawks gamesicon1.png. However, he didn't become one of the best in the business by playing favorites.

 

 

Edzo believes he doesn't play favorites calling Hawks games lol

What's funny is my Dad, a casual Hawks/Hockey fan thought that NBC wasn't giving the Hawks a fair shake in the broadcast booth during Wings/Hawks series... I had to choke back a heated argument with him and just nodded my head. Anyone but family and I would have gone off.

Thank you, hockey gods, for the games being on CBC, for me having access to CBC and for the mute button I can press when Hawks are talking.

 

No lineups announced yet - odd.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

I don't have access to CBC so I will just flip back and forth.  Every time I look, NBC is kissing up to an obnoxious Hawk, which makes me slightly queasy.

 

Go, Bruins!!

I know it's "tradition" in Chicago to cheer during the national anthem. But it still annoys that crap out of me.

Pierre asking Toews if he thinks He Who Shall Not Be Named is watching the game.  Seriously?  We can't do better than this for the Stanley Cup Finals?



Boston struggling early to clear the zone, but they have had the best scoring chance thus far.  Hawks pretty physical already.



"10 hits in the first 3 minutes for Chicago.  Why does every team try to play like Boston?"

"Because they want to show they  won't be pushed around and can play the physical game too."

"That worked well for Pittsburgh."
