...the series hadn't really begun until somebody won a game on the road. So far, both teams have held serve, but there's no denying the Bruins have the momentum-advantage now. Vancouver squeaked out their wins, and Boston kicked ***, totally dominating the action.
Every game is critical in the Finals, but there's good reason to suspect the next game is for the Cup. Particularly if Boston wins, as you'd have to expect the Bruins to continue their home dominance after winning three straight. This series could have been a sweep, with a little luck for Boston in the first two.
I thought that slash Thomas put on Burrows was over-the-top vicious, and deserved some kind of official rebuke. I know he was retaliating for having his stick knocked out of his hands, but that was excessive.
