That garbage goal the other night really woke up Kane.

According to what I saw when I put it in slow-mo, Williams pretty clearly wiped out on his own. Bickell kinda gave him a slash, but not to his skates.

Edit: Yup, looks like Bickell wasn't even in contact with Williams when he started to fall. Fantastic non call in my eyes. If anything, that should be 2 minutes for diving (not quite, but moreso a dive than a trip).

I honestly don't know why Chicago had Kane out there in the last minute.

Its the earlier contact (hold / hook) that should have been called. It threw Williams off-balance, then he lost his edge.

And obviously it wasn't a dive. That's just silly. There's no reason to dive there. It doesn't get called in that game situation.

This is probably the best matchup for SCF out of the final four.

Or Flyers trading Leighton to the Blackhawks for Kane.

I think the Hawks would have to add though.

Glad these two teams got in, I enjoy watching them both. I can't imagine the Hawks can overcome the Bruins size and depth though.

Just a little comedy for those who haven't seen that, Bylsma presser

Especially for Beef, since he spoke a few times about how surreal he felt in discussions with Pens fans about MAF. No wonder they were reacting the way they were, Bylsma is unbelievably supporting him even now. I'm amazed how many times he repeated "Vokoun did what we wanted.. BUT! MAF will be here next year, he's going to take the net, he's the franchise goalie. And he will be."

Fantastic stuff... I realize this is the Flyers board so a Pens presser probably shouldn't appear here but this is impossible not to share.

Edit: And the part about their PP... "We haven't made many changes because we felt we had too many options"

Kane would have been run out of town on a rail.

Edit: Gonna need to watch that presser when I'm done listening to The Band.

The only reason a portion of Bruins fans think he's underrated is because they like to consider him on the same level of Datsyuk/Toews/Kopitar and he's not. He's a great player, don't get me wrong, but I don't think he's a top 10 center, let alone a top 10 player I would build a team around, and personally I think he's rated just fine right now (although if the Bruins win the cup, I'm sure he'll be overrated just like every player on the cup winning team is every year).
Indeed... he won the Selke because, like I already pointed out, he has among the best (if not THE best) defensive instincts of ANY forward in the NHL. That's the whole point of the trophy. There is a reason Bergeron is moving on to the SCF while the league's "top dogs" hit the golf course.

Patrice also has great offensive instincts too. Not to mention he was top 3 in the league this year in faceoff win percentage. Such is par for the course

Anyhow, I still feel like he is underrated around the league. Why, you might ask??

Well for a playmaker of his talent, with his work ethic, defense, etc -- the faceoff % domination is just a cherry on top -- and for a guy who seems to make players around him better... he is still conspicuously left off "Top Ten Centers Lists" all over HF forums. All the time.

Perhaps I am just being a homer... but for Bergeron to not be considered a top 10 center is just mind-boggling to me. He is a big part of the reason the Bruins rolled over Bettman's Boys, and made it look easy.

On THAT note, i'll add one more thing. I've been lukewarm on Tuukka Rask ever since that 2010 choke against the Flyers... but i believe this season he has put that well behind him and this playoffs will prove to be his "national coming out party" as a top goaltender in the NHL.

Rask's technique is so sound he actually makes quality saves LOOK pedestrian because his positioning is perfect so often. And he is still very young... he had a quality regular season but he has taken his game to another level this postseason.

Then again, i will admit that the Bruins' chemistry and awesome team defense does help him out, obviously. But he still shut out Cindy, Gina and the rest TWICE. Two goals in almost 14 periods of playoff hockey!!!

I know I'm probably a little late to the party on this, but man it must suck to be Jerome Iginla right now. Vetoed the trade to Boston so he could win a Cup in Pittsburgh, only to be swept in embarassing fashion by Boston.

Well, was 0/2 on my Conference Finals picks.

For the Final, I'm taking Boston in 6, so congrats to the Blackhawks for winning the 2013 Stanley Cup.

It would be the first time the Cup didn't change conferences in over ten years.

I picked Bruins in six as well. I've been doing pretty good overall: round 1 7/8, round 2 3/4, conference finals 1/2. I've gotten one wrong in every round so far so it's not looking good for the Bruins
