Sharks are destined to win now.
4 of the last six teams including the last 3 had to beat the Canucks to win the cup. (Anaheim, LA, Chicago, Boston)

Canucks swept out.

Canadiens embarrassed on their home ice.

Already correctly guessed 1 right, could potentially have 3 right.

Too many chances the B's aren't cashing in here 1/3 through the first period of Game 6.

Can Phil's goal be enough to hold on to this and force a game 7 ?

The fact that Boston has won almost twice the faceoffs and were ahead 2-0 is so insane.

Bruins definitely don't help their own cause, but I give major props to Toronto here. Your guys are playing balls-out hockey that's a real pleasure to watch. This is why the Stanley Cup Playoffs > all other playoffs.

Reimer's shutout bid foiled again, but I'll take the win !

Bring on Game 7.

Definitely.

Every single team that makes the Stanley Cup playoffs has a shot at the cup.

Can Boston lose game 7 on home ice 2 years in a row?

Absolutely. If it does happen, Claude Julien and Peter Chiarelli had better be gone.

I don't see how he wouldn't be fired. Last year, they lose 1st round as a 2nd seed. If they lose game 7 now, they would have blown a 3-1 lead.

3 of the 4 second round matchups are set:


Blackhawks/Red Wings
Kings/Sharks
Pens/Sens


The two winners from the other game 7s will play each other. So these are the possibilities:


Caps/Bruins
Caps/Leafs
Bruins/Rangers
Leafs/Rangers

We only won a Cup because Tim Thomas turned in an all-time GOAT string of efforts in goal. We won that Cup despite Claude's system hockey, not because of it and I'll tell you this, too...Tuuka Rask is the last guy I blame for this because he's been as solid as you could ask him to be.

Cam has no choice but to drop Julien if we can't win this. Jagr with Peverly and Kelly while Seguin is out there doing nothing at all on a Top 2 line? Splitting Chara and Seidenberg for any reason at all? Just a few of the adjustments that Claude should have made by now and he refuses to.
