    And the '93 Habs remain the last Canadian team to win the Cup. 26 years and counting....

    Damn, just read about the San Jose/Vegas game 7. Vegas up 3-0 midway through the 3rd period, then a controversial 5 minute major penalty called against Vegas and in those 5 minutes the Sharks went from 3-0 down to 4-3 in the lead. That's crazy. Still went into OT and any team could have won, but the Sharks pulled it out and now Vegas is whining about the penalty and saying the game was 'stolen' from them.

    The 3rd period and OT of that Sharks game were probably the two best periods of hockey I've seen in a couple years.

    Fail Canadian hockey fan unknowingly blocks final moments of playoff game shown to U.S. viewers

    By Louis Casiano | Fox News




    Angry U.S. hockey fans watching Sunday’s playoff game between the NHL’s Boston Bruins and Toronto Maple Leafs were treated to the back of one spectator’s head when he stood in front of a television camera during the final moments of a frantic third period.

    The Maple Leafs fan – identified only as Scott to protect him from threats online – opened his phone after watching his team lose 4-2 in Game 6 at Toronto's Scotiabank Arena-- and noticed something wasn't right.

    "I looked on Instagram and I was at the top of my feed," he told the CBC News Network on Tuesday. Some have even said: “off with his head.”

    Upset Bruin fans, including actor Rob Lowe, took to Twitter to complain about the obstructed view.

    "Watching the Boston Toronto hockey game and literally all I can see is the back of somebody’s head. NBC: needs to get their act together right now," Lowe tweeted.



    Scott sat two rows in front of cameras at the game. When he stood to take in the action, he unknowingly blocked a large portion of ice near Boston’s goal. NBC, which broadcast the game for U.S. viewers, said technical difficulties forced the network to switch to a replacement camera during the third period. Canadian viewers had a clear view of the game, CBC reported.

    The anger many Bruin fans felt presumably subsided when the team took care of the Maple Leafs with a 5-1 win Tuesday to advance to the second round against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    What a pretty goal in OT for the B's to win the game.

    A highly respected and truly unique writer in Vancouver sports media, Jason Botchford, died suddenly at age 48 this week. Left behind 3 young kids and a wife, seemed like a healthy guy too. Listened to sports radio at work a bit today and it was incredibly sad. You spend hours reading a guy's articles, seeing his great fan interaction on Twitter, listening to him on radio, and to have him pass so suddenly is awful. He recently moved to The Athletic and I signed up for a subscription just to continue reading his articles. RIP Botch. I wish you'd been able to see us win a cup.



    Even Torts and some old Canucks wished their condolences today


    - I am shattered. Just sitting here in a daze. I have lost the best podcasting partner a guy could ask for. Botch was also a friend, colleague, travelling companion & a driving force in #Canucks coverage. So many great memories. My sincerest sympathy to his family. #ripbotch ��

    - Deepest sympathies to the family of Jason Botchford, incredibly sad news to learn of his passing at just 48. Creative,passionate, a bit zany and so good at what he did. I loved my back-and-forth with Botch, both on and off the air.. will miss those. #RIP

    - He was the Batman to my Robin. I have zero words for this. I don't even know how to process this. I'm gonna miss you Botch. You had such a huge impact on my writing and were also a friend away from the writing game. I don't know what else to say or think.

    - Jason and I worked on stories together, we shared info. There was a trust level between the 2 of us. I respected his passion and ability to get information. We had heated conversations as well but respect was always there. RIP Botch and condolences to his family.

    - There can be insincere hyperbole when someone passes away, but in the case of Jason, I truly can’t think of a beat writer for any sport that covered their game like Botch. The Provies and Athletties were mandatory reading. Even for the rest of us covering the same game!

    Damn Lance, your B's are buzzing. I think Rask's 39 save shutout tonight might've been one of the best goalie performances of these playoffs, maybe one of the best of his career? Should be a good round vs the Hurricanes next!


    Also holy shit:
    In a collective 263 minutes playing against Patrice Bergeron..... Tavares, Marner, Panarin, Atkinson, Matthews, Jenner, and Duchene have been on-ice for a combined 4 goals

    That offside no-goal called against the Avs made me roll my eyes. Sure, it's offside by the rules because Gabe hadn't quite got off the ice onto the bench... but it really had no impact on the play IMO. These play reviews are out of hand and it sounds like they may keep adding more.

    Go back to no offside video review, and no goalie interference video review. The refs call can stand for everything except whether the puck actually crossed the goal line if their view was obstructed. These play reviews are boring and usually meaningless to the actual goal if the ref couldn't see it clearly with their own eyes in the first place.

    If someone was a half step offside and play continued for 30 seconds before scoring, what fucking difference does it make? If a linesman standing on the blue line couldn't spot it, then they got away with it. End of.

    Mark my words, we're going to have a team on the ice celebrating a huge moment, sticks and gloves everywhere, only to have a goal called back for something stupid and it's going to be a really bad look for the league. Already happened in a women's tourny this year.

    I love Marchand Yeah, he walks that line between being a dirty player (and he does cross that line sometimes) but he's the kinda player you love when he's on your team. If he was anything but a Bruin, I would hate his guts

    Quote Originally Posted by CBS Sports

Last round, Marchand found himself in some hot water when he stomped on the stick blade of Blue Jackets forward Cam Atkinson, then again later when he delivered a cheap shot to the back of the head of defenseman Scott Harrington. Marchand wasn't disciplined for either of those incidents, either.

    As we see so often in hockey, the initial crime often goes unseen while the retaliation gets the attention of officials. Nobody knows this better than Marchand, and he used it to his advantage on Sunday afternoon.

    That's exactly how I'd feel if he were on my time. Kind of a piece of shit, but hilarious, great for the game, and incredible talent to back up his shenanigans. Only thing I'd change about him is that I do wish he'd actually drop the gloves more often when he does something really dirty.

    Boston absolutely dummied the Canes last night, holy.

    Ugh... I've watched a lot of hockey since they started reviewing goalie interference and I have less idea than ever what the actual rule is. This is fucking stupid.
