    Should be fun to watch, good old hockey.

  2. bigbadbruins77 - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:37 AM

    Lets go bruins!!! “plan your life” haha, funny you say that, I just looked on my outlook calender for work, mens league, school, and drill, and made sure I am off for the games :)

  3. devilsarethebest - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:38 AM

    Damn, too long of a break. Seriously, what am I supposed to watch until Wednesday, basketball? Whatever, got to let the players rest for it to be a good exciting series.

  4. tdrusher225 - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:45 AM

    NBC must be out of their mind about this matchup. This could end up being one of the highest rated, most competitive, and highly entertaining Cup Final we’ve seen in a long time. No doubt this thing is going at least 6 games.

    • bigbadbruins77 - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:59 AM

      good point~!

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Jun 9, 2013 at 1:58 AM

      No way! They would so much rather have a Phoenix-Tampa Bay matchup, teams from where hockey was born and reigns supreme, especially in June!

      • spitfisher - Jun 9, 2013 at 8:02 AM

        the wild and the blue jackets would be awesome…….well may be not!

    • jcmeyer10 - Jun 9, 2013 at 9:49 AM

      Gary Bettman creamed his trousers when Chicago won last night.

  5. badgerbuck - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:55 AM

    Should be a terrific series,who wins? The fans of corse. I see Boston in six destiny on their side with bombing and all.

  6. bigbadbruins77 - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:58 AM

    Interesting Fact. The last time Jagr was in the Cup finals was 21 years ago…against…the Hawks! and he won ;) Bruins in 6 WOO!

    • sheckyrimshot - Jun 9, 2013 at 1:52 AM

      OH YEAH?! The last time two original six teams met in the finals was in 1979 when the Canadiens beat the Rangers. The head coach of the habs? Scotty Bowman: current senior advisor to hockey operations of the Blackhawks. Who was also the coach of Jagr and the penguins in 1992! Stick THAT interesting fact in your pipe and smoke it!

      • bigbadbruins77 - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:12 AM

        aww that’s cute, sounds like 6 degrees of seperation to me. and I don’t smoke ;) Bruins are going to win, period.

      • govtminion - Jun 9, 2013 at 8:32 AM

        That took work to research. I salute you and your factoids, sir!

  7. pitpenguinsrulez - Jun 9, 2013 at 1:51 AM

    Screw Boston! I’d rather see the Hawks win than Boston and Jagoff

    Hawks win in 7

    • gallyhatch - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:06 AM

      This has to be one of those imposter troll accounts, right? I mean, no Penguins fan is really dumb enough to post this stuff, is he?

      • pitpenguinsrulez - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:37 AM

        Imposter troll account my ass! Let me guess its a federal crime for me to post who I want to win in this series when all I’m doing is exercising my 1st amendment right.

      • hockeyflow33 - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:49 AM

        This isn’t an exercise in 1st Amendment rights. The right to free speech only applies to the government infringing upon your right to speak, not private enterprise.

      • gallyhatch - Jun 9, 2013 at 10:01 AM

        Hey buddy, I won’t infringe on your right to speak, the more you do, the dumber you look!
        By all means, please keep going!

  8. canucks30 - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:34 AM

    Ah yes. Bruins vs Blackhawks. The dream Stanley Cup Final for any Canucks fan…

  9. chanceoffleury1 - Jun 9, 2013 at 3:33 AM

    If the Pens can’t bring the Cup back to Pittsburgh, then maybe Brandon Saad can do it for them? Kings have put me in a tight spot here. I always root for the team that beat the Pens to win it all (unless it’s Philly, then I just cry) since saying they lost to the champs makes their routine underachievement a little easier to stomach, but I grew up with Brandon Saad’s older brother. Can’t really root against the hometown kid. Decisions, decisions………

    • revansrevenant - Jun 9, 2013 at 6:48 AM

      Always root for the East.

      • jpelle82 - Jun 9, 2013 at 8:12 AM

        agreed. east

  10. papajack1259 - Jun 9, 2013 at 6:27 AM

    In 1967 my Dad took me to the Boston Garden to see who he claimed was the best hockey player Bobby Hull There was a youngster Bobby Orr who played as well Ever since The hawks have been my west team How the Bruins adjust to the Kids from Chicago is going to determine just how good Julian is as a Coach
    Go Bruins great for Hockey

  11. s2mikey - Jun 9, 2013 at 8:09 AM

    I’d think the hawks will take care of business here. They look like a true cup team. Boston, while scrappy and hardlating doesn’t seem as good as the latest results would indicate. Julien was correct in saying they did get a little lucky against Pitt. Anyone that watched that series also saw this. Pitt outplayed them in 3 of the 4 games but didn’t get a single break or bounce. That’s hockey but reality says the hawks and their much deeper roster won’t hit the crossbar fifty times. Hawks in six, easily. Rask will be exposed as a mediocre goal tender.

    • dboldave - Jun 9, 2013 at 8:25 AM

      Right because the Pens had no skill or depth on their team and all of Rask’s stops were just textbook. Troll harder bro!

    • bruins18 - Jun 9, 2013 at 1:10 PM

      Your a moron… Pens outplayed the bruins in 3 out of 4 games… Are you high? They got shutout twice and demolished 6-1 smh

    • phillyphanatic77 - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:28 PM

      This is insanity. You clearly didn’t watch the East finals. The Hawks have Toews, Kane, Hossa, Sharp, Bickell, Saad, etc; the Bruins have Bergeron, Krejci, Lucic, Jagr, Marchand, Horton, Seguin, etc… pretty close when it comes to forward scoring depth. Then, IMO, the Bruins have a slightly deeper d-corps, with a clear advantage in goal. I’ve watched both teams play throughout the playoffs and the Bruins have just impressed me more. Although the loss of Campbell hurts, as he was part of the best 4th line in hockey, the Bruins can still roll 4 excellent lines. And even if the Bruins sustain an injury on the blueline they have the likes of Bartkowski and Redden to fill in. They’re the deeper team (IMO) with the hotter goaltender. And it’s basically the same team that won the Cup (+Jagr) while the Hawks are drastically different. Bruins in 6.

      Also, I really hope NBC doesn’t have Roenick on because we will never hear the end of how superior Chicago is to any other City or team.

    Presidents’ Trophy: “doesn’t mean a whole lot”.

    http://prohockeytalk.nbcsports.com/2013/04/22/toews-presidents-trophy-doesnt-mean-a-whole-lot-to-hawks/

    I’m sure having three days off at home before the big dance starts on Wednesday makes them appreciate being the best of the league. I hope we see coach Q doing some line matching unlike what Bylsma did vs the B’s.

  13. clefty1 - Jun 9, 2013 at 9:50 AM

    Boston shut down the Penguins and they can do the same to the Hawks one big difference will be in goal where Boston has the advantage, Rask is the better goalie, Crawford only has good numbers because of the team in front of him.

  14. bruinsfan1953 - Jun 9, 2013 at 9:54 AM

    pitpenguinsrulez get over it

  15. pastabelly - Jun 9, 2013 at 10:15 AM

    I’m hoping to hear more of Zombie Nation than Chelsea Dagger.

  16. eaglesbest - Jun 9, 2013 at 11:31 AM

    s2mikey didn’t u say the same thing when the bruins and pens played. Worked out well for u.

  17. thebigtim2012 - Jun 9, 2013 at 11:55 AM

    S2mikey saying task is a mediocre goalie is probably the most foolish statement I have read on here in a long time. Pitt was averaging 4 goals a game and how many goals did they gave against us? Give credit where credit is due. You lost suck it up. As a lifelong Boston sports fan I had a long long time to get used to losing. It hurts it sucks but trashing the team that beat you is just sour grapes.

  18. s2mikey - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:23 PM

    Not a fan or hater of either team. Just going by what I saw which was Rask getting the best bounces and breaks I’ve ever seen. Mike Quick was also very recently the “best goalie on the planet” and then Chicago blew him away and made him look very mediocre. Those are the facts. I understand rabid fan emotions cause people to not see the facts. That’s OK.

    • dboldave - Jun 9, 2013 at 12:52 PM

      Right, Quick is pretty mediocre and will never win anything in this league!

    • bigt12789 - Jun 9, 2013 at 1:05 PM

      Please, the only rabid fan base emotion that has been going on the past few days is the Pens fans that have convinced themselves that their team outplayed the B’s 3 out of 4 games despite having one of the worst offensive series in NHL history. Whats also funny is the fact that the Pens players themselves admited this series was over so quickly because they didnt show up in either of the first two games. It’s kinda hard to outplay anyone when all of your star players don’t put up a single damn point over the course of 4 games. You can try to rationalize all the posts and bounces you want, or even try to say that Rask just stole the series, but a team that averages half a goal a game hasn’t outplayed anyone…

    • bigt12789 - Jun 9, 2013 at 1:17 PM

      Also wasn’t Mike Quick a WR for the Eagles in the 80’s? Jonathan Quick is a pretty good goalie though…

      • phillyphanatic77 - Jun 9, 2013 at 2:35 PM

        Yes Mike Quick was a great wideout, and currently provides commentary on Eagles radio broadcasts. Mikey doesn’t know what he’s talking about.

  19. papajack1259 - Jun 9, 2013 at 3:19 PM

    Post is not a shot on net you do not get nothin for it because even with a empty net it ain’t a goal. If Marchaund gets under the Chicago skin which he will, we will see how the young guns of The hawks react.
    and 53 stops for any goalie is quite a feat add two shut outs and Boston gets the goalie edge

  20. ilikejay - Jun 9, 2013 at 11:36 PM

    That same fanatical crap came out of LA before that series started. “Hawks do not have a chance”, again and again. We’ll see. I personally believe this team is better than the 2010 team. Boston is a good team, and on a roll, but the Hawks are too. So good luck to you, but I am all for the Hawks!

  21. wranglerick - Jun 10, 2013 at 9:15 AM

    June 26 for a possible game 7 ? The islanders used to win the cup in may !….many many years ago

  22. icrew29 - Jun 10, 2013 at 10:00 AM

    I am afraid the refs will decide this series. That is how bad the refs have been in this years playoffs.
