Agree, anybody but the Bruins.  I am hoping this game goes long enough the Bruins have to sit and maybe get cold.
Anybody but the Bruins.
;D
Yes agree with both you very wise guys!
But can either Sharks or Blues get thru that Bruin defensive wall ?
In the Bruin zone they are on the puck carrier.
It's like whoever plays against Boston they are trying to make plays in a broom closet.
But it would be so....nice if the Sharks or Blues lift the Cup for the first time.
Regardless may the best team win.
Just hope it's not another "sweep". At least 6-7 games & each one exciting end to end action !!!

Sharks/Blues tied 2-2 in series.
2-1 W for Blues.
Both goalies played very good.
Sharks directed lots of shots towards the net.
So many shots they shot went wide of the net.
Easy save for goalie when shoots go wide  ;D
Next game in California...long plane flights.
Both teams quite well matched.
Both teams are trying their best ...see/saw battle out there.
Blues are quite good / big guys...Sharks have older players it seems & skilled guys with a lot of heart...
Both teams would put up a fight against Boston I think.
Very character players on Sharks so it would be interesting match up against Bruins.
Burns knocking guys down etc..
If they advance hopefully they will have enough in the tank to do battle.
Blues or Sharks should get at least 2-3 days off ya would think before game 1 of the finals.
What will be will be.

They'll be playing "It's a Heartache" for the next game.

Watching replay & it 's 4-0 Blues ( cheated a few minutes ago & checked the final damage 5-0 )
Never saw that coming.
I like both Blues & Sharks so happy for a Blues but the Shark players must be feeling bad.
Sharks had lots of energy at the beginning of the game & were beating the Blues to the puck & directing shots....but Shark zone Karlson on a bad play ...Blues score.
Down hill from there.
Worst game for Sharks.
Do the Sharks just fade away now & get kicked out of the series in game 6 or will they regroup & get some shots that go in the net...& come home for game 7 ?
Time to bench Karlson as his groin is affecting his play
Sharks have heart but their Capt. has been hit hard & looks like he's hurting..
Couture looks like his tank is getting low.
Kane looks ineffective.
Stanley Cup is the hardest Cup to win & along the journey teams go head to head & it's wear & tear ..
Blues would be a better match up against Boston.
Bigger guys & still have gas in tank. Team not as beat up as Sharks.

End of the 2nd period in game 6 & it's 3-1 score for the Blues. How is it Sharks have only 1 goal as they have had scrambles infront of the Blue's net. They should have at least 2 goals via their chances.
They are not going away quietly.
Sharks need to pot in a goal within the first 10 minutes in the 3rd thus have time to try to tie up the game & go into OT.
Will the Chris curse manifest ???  ;D
Sharks strike for 4 goals in the 3rd should it manifest  ;D
Remember the Knights up in the 3rd.
Honestly hope the Sharks go down to defeat as the Blues will be a harder team for the Bruins to defeat.
These Blues really hand out bulldozer type body checks.
They have sandwiched Shark players along the boards so many times. One by one Shark players are heading to the locker room to get repairs. Blues idea to to take out 4-5 players to injures & the rest 16 players with aches pains & bruises. They play like their tough guy coach.
3rd period here we go.........sharks have super players with heart so it will be defeat for a team that went far into the play-offs. Think it's the last kick at the can for some of these players long at the tooth.
Well 15 teams will be / have been kicked out so join the club Sharks... Next goal if there is one will be so important.  Get within one goal 3-2 or behind 4-1 ouch
Penalty to Blues.....18:20 .....

Well well..Blues get the next goal. Not Sharks ...game set & match...
2:40 left in game as I type this...oh another goal.. Empty net. Salt in wounds. 5-1.
In third Sharks had a power play & they had chances...
Then later near break away for Couter & his targeted shot stopped.
Plus they have hit cross bars ...posts...
They have just no puck luck.
Blues never gave out any hard hits in the 3rd period.
They know they have to shake Shark hands.
Another team bites the dust.
Rask will not allow so many rebounds after saves...
So many of the Blues goals / chances came on rebounds.
Sharks lose 3 in a row.
So imagine game one will start on Friday/Sat ? ( in Boston ?) 
Think we are all in agreement. Chris FA TNA ( Nova Bonker ? ) & myself will be cheering on the Blues.
What FA & Chris cheering for the same team. Imagine that.  :o
Now that is where soap opera tv series & fiction books have made millions of dollars...
Hear yee hear yee Chris & FA cheering for same team WOW  ;D
Just heard Cup Finals start Monday. That is a 5 day rest for the Blues. Just what the doctor ordered.
Wow Boston has been inactive for a long time.
Will they be rusty & lack of timing. Hockey players play so many games in a season ...being out too long will "play on their head"...think too much...
