That Edler hit was dirty. Shame on CBC commentators for no one criticizing it as they should have. It was from the side and targeted the head. Should have been 5 mins.

He was, and if the Habs hadn't gotten decimated by injuries, the Bruins would be on the links. Even then the Bruins barely escaped.

Since then, Philly, Tampa, and now Vancouver's goalies have been outright terrible.

Great take down by Kesler. Too bad this isn't UFC.

Canucks seriously wanted to win it at home i guess...

but how does it feel possibly winning the cup in 7 when u are being outscored 15-1 in 3 games on the road...

Habs took these bruins to game 7 overtime....and god damn we were dominating that overtime until halperns knee! WHYYYY

There was nothing wrong with it. RDS said the same.

The guy was bent over, he put himself in that position.

It's ridiculously frustrating though, especially if you don't see Boston as an elite club (which I don't). They're on their way to being handed the Cup by opposing goaltenders, but I betcha that won't be the narrative.
Well it's a skill when you're continuously having the puck, when you drive the net, when you shoot from all angles instead of trying the fancy plays and when you just bring it, which they do. They could have looked way more nervous but they don't. Yes, Boston didn't face the greatest of goalies. Though Price wasn't bad. Roloson used to be a hero before that series. And Luongo did bring them where they are with his ups and downs. I'm pretty sure that if we'd look at all the cup winners in the past, we'd see that they also faced some ordinairy goalies. Chicago did face Leighton in the Cup Final.

It was only a penalty because it was a hit during an icing rush.

Bruins learned a lot from their painful collapse to Philly last year. Now they know at 3-0 a game ain't over and a lead ain't safe. Hehe, didn't stop us from nearly coming back on them and forcing 3 OTs. They narrowly avoided another choke but since then have been money. Why does that happen to teams that beat the Habs in the playoffs lately? Carolina in 06, now this. And Tampa beat us to get the cup too after no one had done that and gone on to championship glory since 1964! We're now the barometer for Cup readiness!

How can Vancouver be so fragile? They give up the 1st goal and completely self-destruct. Bad goals, and stupid penalties at this stage is inexcusable.

All teams do that to some extent. And it's not that the Bruins are particularly good at it. The Bruins don't generate better-quality chances or more chances than other teams. They routinely get outchanced. But they get goals. Which is why people see them driving to the net and think it's the recipe for success. But the recipe is largely that the opposing goalies just dissolve.

Nice for them. But that sort of thing doesn't last.

If even one of Boucher, Roloson, or Luongo had been "ordinary", the Bruins would be golfing. All three have been outright godawful. Below replacement-level -- you literally could call up a goalie from the AHL and expect better.

Still eh? Boston is badly outplaying them. Not sure what games you've been watching.

No way Nucks win the cup. I mean how is it possible for a team to be outscored by a 18(and counting) to 6 margin in a series going into the game 7 and win. Unheard of, all things point to Bruins crushing the Nucks in game 7 and it ending with a lot of fights.

3 goals on 8 shots against the starter. At this point the game has ceased to be a competitive contest.
