    I agree, Rooney / Dwyer did an excellent job last night! They didn't miss much and had good sense for non-calls on both sides. The game had a good flow and was great entertainment. The NHL powers that be would be wise to use them Wednesday.

    Yup. Have some friends over, hopefully you have a nice big TV and some surround sound. Food is better, beer on demand, nobody in your field of view, bathroom is clean and no line, no parking issues

    BUT, being there would still be epic.

    If the Blues win the Stanley Cup it would be great for the sport of hockey. But the Bruins might have the most American players of any Stanley Cup Competitor.

    Rosters

    Teams: Blues / Bruins
    Total players: 30 / 37
    US born: 4 - 13% / 16 - 43%
    Canadian born: 20 - 67% / 7 - 19%

    The others on both teams are comprised of Europeans from Finland, Russia, Slovakia and Sweden.

    That and I think they just want to avoid conflict.... I also I think that it would be difficult to get those other two nippleheads out of Boston if a fair game isn't called... if those two officiate game 7 and then if there's massive missed calls it'll turn into a huge scandal for the league.... I think the last thing the NHL want is to be viewed like the NBA trying to rig games to prolong series etcetera or alter the outcome of a championship....

    I heard that Berube mentioned after game 6 that he thought some of his players held back on the physicality as they were worried about taking a penalty/suspension and he said he wanted his team to up the physicality. So hopefully the refs don't put their whistles away for game 7 and let the Blues continue to take the cheap head shots and get away with it. I don't the physical play, it's the continuous high hits that don't seem to get called that pisses me off, and when they do get called they all whine like they did nothing wrong. Hence his complaint about all the calls when the B's went 4 for 4 on the power play (one of those was for puck over the glass of there is no judgement call on that).

    Honestly, not sure who i'd sit. Moore and Clifton have been fine. A guy coming off a concussion for a game 7 final scares me.

    That's what I'm hearing too, would be a very solid choice.

    I see Tim Thomas as a fat Jeremiah Johnson in my mind's eye.

    Not predicting a score.

    But if the Game Six Bruins show up, the Blues have nothing to match it.
