As a fan of the sport I've been watching the finals on a pretty regular basis and I think it's been an exciting series so far. Scoring, goal tending, physical play all the things that make it a great sport. I don't think you have to be a fan of either team to enjoy it.

I think it's more of how bad of a taste the Lightning left in our collective throats that is fueling the non-interest, at least for me it is. Not any animosity against either team, just a bitter taste left after such a regular season and the expectations we all had.

This sums it up for me, as well. Just so very disappointed.

I believe Chara is signed for next season.

From what I am hearing on Portland talk radio, I suspect he will be back next season unless there is something we have not heard yet.
What I have seen of their defense men with the exception of Carlo they are on the small side so the Bruins will be shopping if he does not return.

They are calling the Bruins 2nd line the Ghost line as they have not shown up this playoff year. The first line is sputtering, and their 3rd and 4th lines plus defensemen have been adding secondary scoring. ....and even with that, the Blues are not winning by huge margins. Although that Blues forecheck was ferocious in game 4. The Bruins couldn't break out of a wet paper bag all game.

If the Bruins 2nd line ever does get going and pot a few and the 1st line plays to their potential they will win the series.
Otherwise, its a toss up depending on Blues scoring/defense.

I don't care about St. Louis, and it will be a cold day in hell before I watch the Bruins play any team that I don't have even a mild rooting interest in.

Screw Chara. He is not the “good guy” he is made out to be.

Didn't see the game, only saw the Acciari trip on Twitter. Gotta say I'm loving the tears from Boston over that non call.
