Blues got really outplayed for the first say 15 minutes then started playing their game where they gum up the blue line though once t hey got the lead they seemed to play some sort of shutdown game and not keep their foot on the gas offensively, that will not fly for game 6 IMO - they will need a killer instinct to win it at home Sunday.

krejci?

Rask was also great last night. Series is going 7 but I always thought whoever won game 5 is winning the series

So... have we found out yet how much money that ref put down on the Blues back when they were in last place?

I feel like Boston should worry more about their top line having zero even strength points all series than all the bad things the Blues/refs are doing

When they score a goal directly after what was a blatant penalty (even Bozak thought it was going to be call)Ö it's kinda hard to just let it go.

just sucks that when you look back on this playoff run the thing people will remember the most is the officiating

I get that, but the complaining started well before that. All Iíve seen is Blues are dirty and refs suck and nothing about the Bruins inability to get their game going in even strength.

Yeah. I mean on Boston radio there has been a lot of talk about how bad the bruins have been 5 on 5 but the Refs have been that bad it just seems to overshadow it nationally and locally to a point. Even the St Louis dispatch headline this morning is about the missed tripping call.

Yeah, I mean it's just as bad as (maybe worse than) the no call in the NFC Championship... of course it's going to be the talk of the town.

Yeah it’s silly to think that this shouldn’t be the talk of the hockey world this morning. While I can understand that “it’s not one play that wins or loses a game”, I would counter with the fact that the NHL got 33% of its scoring plays last night wrong. In a game where there are three scoring plays in sixty minutes, and one of them shouldn’t have been a scoring play, it’s hard to ignore or discredit it. Ultimately, goals are indeed what decides who wins and loses. And the nhl is dead set on bringing in legalized gambling as a revenue stream?? They gotta figure this glaringly egregious officiating mistake stuff out first. That’s how you end up with dead officials, literally. And this has been happening. All. Playoffs. Long.

Barbashev to have a hearing for the hit on Johansson

Be cool if the refs could make the call on the ice and not just rely on the nhl player safety to do it

Refs should keep that photo in their pockets for game 6 to help them identify what a trip looks like

I get that and think officiating is definitely a problem that has been glaringly apparent throughout these playoffs (my team had one against them that was particularly ridiculous). The NHL needs to address it.

But while I get that officiating is an issue, it is not the only reason the Blues are up in this series. First, Binnington. He's shown a lot of resilience coming back from that game 3 drubbing. I mean, yeah that second Blues goal shouldn't have counted, but it's not like the Bruins didn't have chances throughout the game to put points on the board. 39 shots on goal. Thirty-nine. On a rookie. The shots were like 12-4 at one point and they didn't capitalize.

And sometimes when there is a shot count like that you start to blame defense, but to the contrary I'd give them a lot of credit for the low point totals from that Bruins top line. The #1 unit of Parayko and Bouwmeester has been an absolute FORCE out there. They're keeping up speed-wise, they're physical, they limit the quality scoring chances, they're breaking out [reasonably] well. And then to have an all-star like Pietrangelo playing on the second unit? So key, especially with the way Krejci is playing (best forward on the Bruins right now IMO).

All that said, the Bruins are one good shot away from turning this thing around. Binnington has shown he's not perfect, and if that top line can get any sort of room, this series can shift Boston's way pretty quickly.

In the end, I'm content with either team winning.

I said to a buddy this morning I think the Bruins blowing them out on their home ice hurt the Bs more than it did the Blues

Just seemed like it sparked something in the Blues and have been running the Bruins over since...I know the games are close but there are stretches where the Bruins can't even get out of their own zone. It is like they are almost always on the PK

I fully agree with everything youíve said. I think itís beautifully put and I absolutely would not say the Blues are ahead because they got the break that they did last night.

Alls Iím saying is that in a playoff stained by poor officiating, weíve now had the newest version of the biggest incident yet. In a 1-0 game midway through the third period of game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final, that call being missed canít happen. It changes everything about the complexion of the game. And thatís not fair to the sport. I donít mean to be all soap boxy, and I have never been one to be harsh on referees at all, but I mean the trip is right there. Slewfoot, textbook, clear as day. And then a goal immediately results in the aftermath of a confused group of hockey players, as many on both sides, including the man who committed the foul, expected it was about to penalized. I mean that just canít happen. It changes everything. It changes the series. And thereís been far too many examples of that. They gotta figure that out. Maybe itís just bad luck this year. I donít know, but that was ugly.
