Hopefully....maybe.... possibly the OT win and the first line waking up and scoring will give them a boost and take game 6.  

I couldn't believe the 2 late goals....  It's probably my fault I jinxed them....I had just sent a couple gloat text's to a buddy who's an Islander fan when that catastrophe happened.  I went silent until the OT winner just to be on the safe side.

I'm not knowledgeable enough about hockey to contribute much other than I've really come to enjoy watching it.  I played as a kid and got away from the game because I love college3 hoops so much.  With UConn being down the last several years I've drifted away to hockey.  I've even been to a couple of Lightning games - it's just a great sport - everything football thinks it is.

Go Bolts!

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Hockey is so awesome to watch and play I can care less about just about any sport because I am so into hockey.

They have not been able to link together two games this series I do not see them winning the next two and going 3 in a row. The flyers cannot sit back against the isles they always score when they do and I foresaw it happening.

What a career; and for one team in this era is unthinkable.

I hope not, but if he retires I think Halak will spend next season with Vladar as backup with either Swayman or Keyser getting a huge amount of starts in Providence to get them ready. Guaranteed if he does retire, the Boo Hoo Tuukka Crew will be out in full force exclaiming what a great goalie he was, how they never wanted him to leave, etc when all the did was crap all over him while he was playing.

Don't mention that to many Boston fans, they feel he never one the big one. Between 2013 Game 6 and Game 7 last year, those are some tough loses that tend to stick out. I agree likely would have had a better chance this year with an engaged Rask, but that was not the case. 

If he does retire it will be interesting to see where the team goes. There are a number of goalies out there this year, Robin Lehner, Matt Murray, or Holbty, it they want a stop gap that's likely a bit better than Halak while Vladar and others develop. Another interesting idea I have seen is they should leave him exposed like Pitt did with Fluerry for Vegas, since Seattle has its expansion draft this year and they need to hit a cap floor, which Rask's 7 million would really help and be ideal with only 1 year left on the contract. 

Overall the team is a bit of a cross roads. Might have one more run, but if Rask retires and maybe Chara too then probably time to move on. Too bad Tampa is in our division so all roads will be through them most years.

Anyone who thinks that has zero right to consider themselves a Bruins fan.

I mean its fair to criticize, and many Boston fans are so spoiled by how Tim Thomas was other worldly in 2011 and wanted Rask to do the same, which he got very close to last year. It will be a step back in net if he leaves for sure. He was on the whole a great and consistent performer, the Cup is the only thing missing, but obviously those are hard to come by. I agree that without Rask they have not been as successful over this stretch.

In the past 5 years, Rask is 4th in GAA, 3rd in wins, and 1st in shutouts in the NHL.

What is there to criticize? The fact that he went home because his daughter was in the hospital? The fact that the Bruins couldn't score until late in the 3rd period in Game 7 last year? Every fanbase outside of Boston is completely confused at the vitriol sent Rask's way. And they're right - there's no need for it.

This year is totally different for sure him needing to go home is a personal decision that I have no problem with. I agree his numbers have been great, very consistent. I agree he does not deserve the criticism he gets, just sharing the arguments I have heard about him.

It took this far into the playoffs for the captain to finally get a goal

Well at least a couple teams have battled back with three game sevens coming out of those 3-1 leads which is impressive. Still think many of those that had the 3 - 1 lead hold strong, though to win three in a row, but momentum can be a tough thing to stop. Should be some great games here.

Great series for the Stars and Avs, lots of scoring in that one. If Dallas gets Vegas I think they will need to tighten it up but I think with Vancouver it could be a very high scoring series.

The flyers definitely do not have the complete level that the Islanders do. They have pretty much no chance of coming back against the islanders down 2 to a team that locks things down as well as a Barry Trotz coached team
