Experienced Starter w/First Big Contract
Team looked sluggish tonight until they were behind, the ice sucked but it sucked for them too. They'll win game 6 and bring it back for a game 7.
That seems to be the theme in this series. If Toronto wins, I will expect them to be playing for the cup. Hopefully, Boston can continue the zig zag alternate game thing and tie it at 3-3, but that will be difficult to do on the road.Toronto has more talent, and they are playing like they want it more.

Jesus Christ.Screw Rask ..........
I blame him due to my irrational anger of that moment.Don’t know how you blame that on Rask, they were beaten to the puck all night long. Toronto has more talent, and they are playing like they want it more.
See above ......Jesus Christ.
Comments like these really show who are casual fans. Rask was the best player on the ice last night and has been great all series. Exactly which goal did you think was his fault last night? He's let up one weak goal which was the Matthews wrister in Game 4. Other than that, Tuukka has been fantastic.
Maybe place some of the blame on the braindead forwards who have been garbage all series. Somebody put Bergeron, DeBrusk, Marchand, and even Pasta on a damn milk carton. They've been completely outplayed and have showed no grit. Dipsy doodle cute passes that get broken up by Toronto, nobody going to the corners to win puck battles, flipping the puck into Toronto zone with zero backcheck on the Toronto D which is their weakness, etc. Literally the only time i've seen either Pasta or Marchand crash the net they've scored twice, both happening in game 4.
Also bench the entire 4th line. They are supposed to be our energy and tone-setters. Acciari and Wagner have been garbage, Kuraly is clearly rusty. Put back in Kuhlman and Nordstrom. We dress Backes and play him 4 minutes? Put Kuhlman back in if you're going to do that for christ sake. At least he shows the willingness to drive the puck to the net.
And in Game 6, maybe we try something called shooting the puck at the net. We had, what, 4 shots in the first 18 minutes of the game? Looking for extra pass, doing some stupid deke between 3 defenders, etc. instead of getting bodies to the net and pucks on net. It's been an absolute disgrace of a series. Bruce should be ashamed at how poorly his team has been prepared and the lack of intensity they've shown.
Rask, Krejci, McAvoy and maybe Coyle are the only ones who get a pass this series. Everybody else has been AWFUL.
I didn’t catch the stuff about Edwards but I can’t take him, Emrick and Milbury were great though.
They have especially in game 4, not sure what their problem was last night but if they come out like they did in game 4 they can bring it back to Boston.There actually is no crying in hockey, they are getting outworked, outplayed, and outcoached, and unless they can do a 180 and turn it around in all 3 areas their season will be over, and a great opportunity squandered.

Why are we not mad at the interference?
You cause an action (like pushing off of someone on ice) which does an automatic reaction (like get pushed into goalie due to your own action) and consider it fine, otherwise every single offensive player should do exactly that and wipe out the goalie and then take a shot at the net
