Man, you can't possibly crap on a team that makes it to the final. Tampa with an all star team of talent couldn't get passed a mediocre Columbus team in the first round. If you make it to the final dance, you've got a team worthy of making it.

This series isn't over yet. They've been one of the best teams in the league since January. You don't fluke your way into the Cup Final.. you earn it

First game was bad also .. actually worse than this one .. Blues played perfect game in game 2 .. Bruins their worst and it STILL went to OT .. huge skill and speed and goaltending gap with these teams .. difference is Bruins can also play gritty .. Tampas downfall

Look up the 2006 Hurricanes roster and you'll notice it was a mostly veteran filled lineup much like this Blues team. It was also a far better team then it's being given credit for, lots of solid players on that team just like this Blues team has.

I think this Tampa Bay Munchkins fan just has a case of sour grapes.

Ya I took a second look at canes, blueline wasn’t much, but some solid talent up front, and a winner in ward, blueline all solid pros.

if the blues are that bad why does boston need the refs help?
Why was OS suspended (great acting job from the boston guy) but Chara can punch people in the head from behind and not get a suspension or even a penalty? Much like the rat. It was a clear cheap shot at someone's head. Not a thing done.
It's just embarrassing that the league has helped boston so much. The west really is not that good, and the fact they have to help boston with them says all you need to know. They been picking favorites left and right here.

To even mention refs in evaluating the Cup final is laughable ..
