Bring it on!
I like a rematch. Even a 1970 rematch.
Suit up Orr!
Your man from the league isn't playing for the privledge of lifting Lord Stanley's Cup. There is only one trophy hockey players want to put their hands on.
Another former Bruin golfing tomorrow. Sorry Yukon Joe, enjoy your vacation.
It's likely to be spelled "retirement".
Lots of old guys on here.
Anxiously waiting for game 1!!
The blues style of play is similar to the blue jackets but better this will be a war
Damn sure he will be there and bring the house down. I got chills typing this.
Never gets old !
Was in high school in 1970, and a rabid Bruins fan.
Orr, Cashman, Esposito, Buyck, et al....great team!
John Scott has been talking about him in his podcast (he loves him, btw). One year they blamed him for losing in the playoffs, so they yanked the C. Then they had the team vote - unanimous for Thornton. Management wound up handing it to Pavelski.
Doesn’t sound like a happy place.
Johnny Buick, Derek Samuelson, caroll Badname etc.
Those were the days. I have a signed Eddie Cheever hat somewhere.
He will definitely be the honorary flag waver for game 1.
About the impending war.
Both Blues and Bruins are “heavy” teams that were built wear down opponents in a playoff series.
Both teams roll 4 lines, and the “4th” lines have made significant contributions.
Both teams have strong team defenses.
Both team power plays were spotty in the second series but got hot in the third.
Both teams are riding hot goaltenders.
Blues coach Berube was an enforcer who played over 1,000 NHL games. Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy was a much higher draft pick, but had a career cut short by knee injuries. Both coaches were assistants who took over after the head coach was fired.
In the last six Stanley Cup finals, the team with the longer layoff has lost. However in this cup the Blues will have six days off while the Bruins will have five days more: both enough to cool any momentum.
I’m glad the Bruins have game 7 at home. They’re a good road team and not particularly good at home, but this time of year being home has to be a plus.
Nothing against the Sharks but Coast-To-Coast travel and time zone changes would have been tough for both teams. There is a one hour time zone difference between Boston and St Louis, and flight time is about 2-1/2 hours between them.
Are we there yet?
Here’s a quick fix!!
Heading to the scrimmage tonight should be fun
Does Rene Rancourt come out of retirement for Game One?
In the early 70's every kid in New England wanted to be Bobby Orr- until you discovered girls then we all wanted to be Derek Sanderson!!!
As much as I want them to win a cup, as a hockey fan, I would also like a good series. What you’re describing above seems like a good match up, plus then you have Backes trying to win a cup against his former team for added drama.
Samuelson? You might be thinking of the bastard that ended Cam Neely’s career.
I will be at the game in St. Louis next Saturday! Go B's
It was fun no player numbers on the jerseys so the only person I could make put was chara incredibly the place sold out
Bruins fans are the best in the world, so it doesn't surprise me at all. They could sell out a deck hockey game in the parking lot if they wanted to!
They should have won five Stanley Cups that decade!
I hope I live long enough to actually see this series
