I'm not, the goal was a good goal. Crying about an honest loss isn't being a good sport.

First of all Thomas made the save, the rebound was put in and nobody was interfering with him.

Bruins lost this series on their own.

Lost the series on a goal produced as a result of players driving to the net.

Something they had seven games plus multiple overtimes to do. But never seemed to be that interested in consistently doing.

Bit them in the arse. End of story. Not interested in excuses. Wasn't expecting a long run due to wear and tear of last year but this was a winnable series and the Bruins tried to walk through it.

Not crying about it but Knuble was interfering with him. It's not even really up for debate really. Caps fans know it, Bruins fans know it and even Kerry Fraser knows it.

but is it worth whining and writing angry letters about? Not in my opinion. But let's not pretend it didn't happen because it did. But oh well, thems the breaks.

Seven one goal games would seem to indicate two closely matched teams, not one team more deserving of victory than the other.

Although he said he was "shocked" by the loss, I don't get the impression that Thomas is especially perturbed about the interference.

Thomas doesn't seem to be the least bit perturbed that he was interfered with. I almost get the impression that he's happy to be done playing.

I'm not surprised, it has to be grueling to have everyone chomping at the bit to constantly drag you through the mud.

He's been dealing with it his whole life.. Probably thought that, you know, winning a Vezina and Stanley Cup would change it.

Very winnable and their crap PP finally killed them. Plus, the Caps executed a great game plan and they earned this win playing like men.

Kudos to them. I hope they go on to win it all.

I don't envy the part of his job which entails answering questions from muck raking journalists like Haggerty.

Score on the PP that was handed to them with 2:30 left in the third and it's all academic.

Doesn't matter, only would have made us stay up later and be crankier this AM after the Bruins lost.

If it is the correct call, they absolutely should. Glad to see you have faith in the team to be able to pull it out, however.

Not too bummed out, future is bright and we'll have more chances.
Of course they wanted it, for God's sake. That any fan could even question that is absurd (not saying you are, just speaking generally). This is what these guys live for.

And I saw plenty of driving to the net by the Bruins. I also saw plenty of rebounds that blasted past them or took wacky bounces. Last year they got those bounces; this year, they didn't. In a seven-game series all decided by one goal, that made a difference.

We'll agree to disagree with that. Knuble is on Thomas when Thomas makes the SAVE. The rebound was put in after that. We're taking goals away scored after interference rebounds now?

It's not the reason they lost, but it's certainly something that needs to be addressed this summer by the NHL. Decide what interference is and stick to it.
HA!!!!

That'll be the day.....

Think about it....what was interference in January, wasn't in March. Can you ever remember any other sporting organization on the planet that changed the definition of a ruling, unofficially with no public announcement, in the middle of the season?

It's mindboggling.

Sour grapes man. They lost period. No need to complain, they weren't the better team on the ice. We're a better fan base than that.

I wish the Bs had been that aggressive against Holtby, frankly.

The Bruins should have done this to Holby, that is what I am more likely to complain about.

This is tough to watch, and yes, in a reg season game that would be overturned.

However, Mazz brought up a great point yesterday....this goal did not lose us the war, only a singular battle...the better team won this series, and if we are going to complain it shouldnt be about stuff like this. We should have never been in this situation in the first place. we got a GIFT powerplay with like 2:36 to go in the game. you want to complain about something, i would start there...

Rule 69 - Interference on the Goalkeeper

Situation: Crowding the Goalkeeper

I'm surprised Thomas didn't complain.
I got a better idea, how about PLAY BETTER! The better team won get over it. Face it Bruins weren't good enough. I had no problem with the goal. That's how it goes sometimes. I just happy the Bruins didn't drag out the misery to a 2nd OT or something. Season over let's move on.

Not 100% accurate, Knuble was definitely hindering TT`s ability to a degree to have full range to make the save with his right leg but....I agree with the first point, need not look like a few teams players here who do little but whine over spilled milk.

Take it like men, learn from it and move on

Except this is revisionist. A team won, not necessarily the better team. All of the games were close, and Washington didn't demonstrate any superiority in their playmaking or execution. If they were the better team, the series wouldn't have gone to seven games and the wins would have probably had a greater scoring margin.

You saying folks are whining and crying doesn't mean they are. For the most part folks have accepted the loss. Having a conversation about the unfortunate way the game ended is not whining or crying.

However, constantly whining and crying about whining and crying...well, think about that a little bit why don't you.

Actually, the interference was worse than that. Thomas said in the post-game interview above that it was impossible for him to see the puck because as Knuble slid into the crease, his body shoved into Thomas' face mask.
