I don't know why Quenneville decided to take his foot off the gas in the third and let the Bruins come at them. They'd controlled the game just fine through two periods, no reason to stray from that. Almost burned them.
Bergeron is a bigger loss than Toews. Especially in playoff hockey. I know which one I'd rather have on my club.

As per usual the Hawks slowed down as the game progressed. This has been something that is happening regularly. Hawks to out like gangbusters at the start, Bruins have more in the tank.

I'd expect the Bruins to have more in the tank, considering they showed no push through the first 40 minutes of the game, pretty much the same case as Game 2. This time Chicago had their insurance goal, and they needed it. Funny to see the team that dominated for 40 minutes get chastised as usual while the team that didn't show up until it was too late gets the seal of approval.

Bergeron and Toews are both equally important to their teams, regardless of who anyone thinks is the superior player. Toews is +4 in the series by the way, Bergeron is -2. Toews has been significantly more effective at even strength, and has kept the leading scorer in the playoffs largely at bay. The only people criticizing Toews for a crappy postseason are those who prefer to stare at scoring stats as opposed to evaluating how well a player has filled the role given to him by the coach. Outside of three games in the Detroit series, Toews has done what his coach has expected from him.

Hawks are full value for leading the series, don't get me wrong. The scoreline tells the story and the Bruins are arguably even getting better goaltending.

Its on the Bruins, if they lose this series, that they did so by letting the Hawks get out of the straightjacket that Boston had been administering until game 4. The trouble is when you let lethal goal scorers start to score they don't usually stop. Kane is on top of his game and confident now. That kind of stuff is the Bruins fault. They had a 2-1 game lead in series, a home game staring at them, and ****ing blew it. (I only phrase it that way because Boston was not in any way playing their typical playoff game in game 4) They weren't playing how they played the rest of the series.

Patrick Kane has done a great job of rising to the occasion and getting his team some goals. I like that he is doing this will being the anti-HFboards player: isn't a centre (or Dman), not the best defensively, small, and a "perimeter" player.

I was going to comment, but figured I'd hold off. Then I see Allison had a comment. I was thinking the same.

Interesting that Bergeron has his name as Patrice Bergeron-Cleary on the Cup and in the media guide. Doesn't fit on a jersey?

Never knew that was his name.

I dunno, the one who is a captain, Conn Smyth trophy winner, and possibly about to be 2 time cup winner? A guy who has more career playoff points in less games played, is +8 this playoffs, was named best forward in the olympics and is one of the best 2-way players in the game?

Heh, "Hammer" got spun in circles by Marchand on that inside move, Lucic may come to regret not burying that gift setup.
