    Great result for The Blues; 1st win in a SC Final.

    My attention has slightly moved over to The NBA finals, as Toronto Raptors (my local team), take on Golden State. (1st time in Raptors history they have made it to the finals).

    Been a great playoff series so far for The Raptors, and going into game 1 tonight against Golden State as underdogs, should make for great viewing.

    Golden State has been immense these past 5 seasons, but with Durant currently out, The Raptors stand a great chance of causing an upset.

    Tickets for game 7 have been going for $100K+ with the understanding, that if a game 7 isn't needed, you will get you money back minus a 15% admin fee: (over $15K just to hold a ticket that may not be needed - crazy).

      I have stayed up for quite a few nights now and wow what a match this last one was. Craig Berube have really worked wonders since he was brought in as the head coach. You are mentioning NBA, but I haven`t really watched it that much. Not since the Harlem Globetrotters roamed in fact. Michael "Air" Jordan is off course a name I am familiar with.. I think I would have liked to live in Canada. Toronto fascinates me. And also Quebec, but I think you have to master French fluently there?

        I actually got to go watch The Harlem Globetrotters live last year, obviously there has been many renditions since the true original ones, but it was still alot of fun.

        Toronto is a great city, but after 39 years of living in London, being outside of Toronto is a great compromise.

        Back to NHL, for me, The Bruins are to The Leafs what Chelscum are to QPR, so I am really wanting to see The Blues turn over Boston.
        I also agree, Craig Berube has done an amazing job with little resources

        Quebec, meh, beautiful Province, but most there really don't like The English, and there version of French is even awkward to translate for real French people

          CBS just love Boston Bruins. It`s a bit cringworthy how their commentators big them up. Sure they are a great team with an outstanding Goaltender and first line, but they are like you state maybe the United or Chelsea of the NHL. Funny that you mention The Harlem Globetrotters. they were on Norwegian telly back in the days. I do also seem to remember that the visited Oslo a few times..
          Back on topic; St.Louis Blues now need to use their head and avoid silly personal mistake. It`s beyond belief how well they played last night. Tarasenko and Binnington are my favourite players and they both delivered on yesterday. Gunnarson`s goal was great.

              Boston are still huge favourites to win it, hence if they win it will be close to a fairytale. I prefer that take on it.

                I think the fairytale was St.Louis actually getting to the final.
                Anything from this point on is a bonus. I know a lot of Canada is routing for St.Louie due to the amount of Canadian players they have, and we all love to back the underdog.
                As soon as The Leafs were knocked out, I started to back St.Louie.

                  I agree, Fraggy and thank you for your support - who would have thought a team which was close to bottom on the table around Cristmas time could acheive this? I didn`t know that many of our players were Canadians, that`s a plus in my book, and I will look them up on the team page.

                    What happened last night?
                    I fell asleep at end of 2nd period when the Bruins were 1-0.
                    Woke up to the score this morning and was truly shocked.

                    Let's hope St. Louie can finish them off on Wednesday.

                    • To be honest, I don`t know(what happened) as I didn`t watch it. Frankly, I find it a bit dissapointing that they lost with such large margin once again.. But let us not forget that Boston are a top team with an impressive first line, and I`m really not sure what to expect on Wednesday, but I desperatly hope a different outfit will turn up and not give in without a fight. Thumbs up.

                      • I predict Tyler Bozak will be very influential in game 7
