Blues really brought it with physicality. At times over the line and the Bruins PP didn’t punish them for their aggression. Two completely different games, Bruins looked outclassed most of this one.

They didn't call a Blues trip, and then call the Bs for it and the extra guy on the ice gets the assist... that sucks.

Not sure how you enter Game 3 feeling good
But for two bad plays, Rask would have shut them out in regulation, despite the worst performance of the top line’s season.

Bruins needed to finish hits. If the refs are only going to call two for sending a guy to the hospital with a hit in the head from behind, and the other team runs your goalie twice, get your money’s worth.

Just a terrible all around performance by everyone outside of Tuukka. We didn’t even deserve to be in overtime.
4th line was great, esp Nordy and Kuraly. They are now being tasked with shutting down STL only offensive line. Top line is trash through 2 games. Giving up the most goals, ineffective on PP and zero on offense. Hard to fathom how bad they've played.

I blame PSK for starting the game thread Monday night instead of on Tuesday. Blech.

I'd also love to see a replay of what happened to make DeBrusk (?) go down behind the Blues net.

Bad turnover bites them in the ass again. Carlo makes a clear and that whole sequence never gets going.

And can the first line please start playing like they've played hockey before? Please?

I mean, after the second goalie interference call, someone should have been picking up their fucking teeth. Sack up, boys. Rask has to be pissed.

I don't know what is going on with the top line but they were absolutely atrocious tonight in every area of the ice. What a disappointing loss.

Too bad because Binnington looked very beatable tonight, gave up a soft goal and had some poor rebound control. Just didn't get enough pucks on net.

First line at the very least needs to be holding serve when they’re on the ice instead of Marchand and Pasta being fucking turnover machines. Not even putting in good shifts, it’s miserable. Just no jump in their step.

But for two bad plays, Rask would have shut them out in regulation, despite the worst performance of the top line’s season.

This is all wildly accurate. The Blues were allowed to maul Tuukka tonight and somehow none of them had their face smashed in for it. Blues played mean and the Bruins didn’t match it.

Extremely shitty that they could have won anyway without more of the turnover/dumb bullshit. The second goal was an atrocity.

8-1 in the last 9 games and the only loss was in OT despite one of the worst games I’ve seen from the top line, a PP that struggled significantly and being undermanned on defense for most of the game.

Just need to take 1 out of 2 in STL, which seems very possible.

Yeah.

Don’t forget that the Blues suck at hockey. You could tell how shitty a game that was by how badly they tried to pimp every second of something exciting. That’s Blues hockey. Suck between whistles and do lots of stupid shit after.

It was garbage hockey against a garbage team in a garbage city. They’re outclassed.

Fucking kill somebody early and kill the penalty after. Reach in and steal their boring, 4/4 souls.

Just never got the run of strong play they’ve put out late in basically every game for the last month. Sometimes you have a dud I guess. This team certainly doesn’t fear going on the road, and maybe the ice in St Louis will be better for Marchand to get something going.

This is how my streak ends? With treachery?

Fuck that. Some divinely touched poster will start the g3 thread and bring this shit home.

Oh no, they lost a game. It’s at least a game where they didn’t seem to give a flying fuck, for whatever reason.

Skate in g3. Withstand the first 5’ and take advantage of an ultimately mediocre fucking hockey team. Just fucking win

It's you. You are the one. There shouldn't be another thread starter the rest of the way, no matter how this ends.

So apparently game one wasn't the real Blues and tonight clearly wasn't the real Bs, guess we'll have a series after all.

The Blues outplayed them but didn’t really have a bunch of good chances until late in the 3rd. Most things were from the outside. If they play like this again they’re fucked but they also played like this and almost won.

Also the crowd sucked. As did the person behind me who told me to sit down at the start of OT when there were 10 people standing in front of me and the puck was in the offensive zone.

You should have thrown a Goose Island on him.

That crowd was truly a collection of rich sacks of garbage. If you never go to B’s games, shell out to get into a box you low energy bums
