Holy crap...I thought Rene' Rampancourt or whatever his name is was a terrible Anthem singer, but the Bruins Todd Algelie or whatever his name is just said "Hold my beer."

Watching baseball. 

I used to love the guy at the old Montreal Forum who used to sing the anthems.  I think he was a Rene also. 

Edit.  Looked it up. Roger Doucet.

I didn’t bet on Toronto tonight.  So they will win.

Rene was the old Bs guy. Used to sing at bar mitzvahs and people would request Oh Canada

Just turned it on and saw the Buds tie it up.  I’m torn between wanting to laugh at an early Leafs’ exit versus wanting to watch Matthews play more.

Matthews.  And then one of the dumbest penalties by Toronto you will ever see.

When I saw the comparison of Ullmark and Swayman to Cheevers and Eddie Johnson I got worried. Eddie Johnson was winning but he was near sighted. Famously, the year Dryden debuted, the Bruins were super favorites and had won the first game when they started Johnson. He blew the game when he got beat on a dump in shot from the far side of the blue line because he couldn't see it. That's how I feel about Ullmark.

They seem due to lose to Toronto.  Also they will miss Bergeron and Krecji more in the post season than the regular season. 

Did Eddie not want to wear contacts?  I believe they were out by that time.

Going back to 2011, the Winnipeg Jets have scored 7 points in a playoff game twice. The New York Jets have done it zero times.

That was a classic Bruins goal. Marchand spears a guy and while everyone is distracted with that they score a goal.  Bad goaltending also.

Four possible elimination games tonight. Depending on what happens there may be no games Thursday. Arghhhhhh.

It’s a shame the Oilers games have been on late. Even the weekend ones. Next round should be really good.

Rangers and Canes. Panthers and Bruins probably. 

Oilers and Canucks maybe. Avs and Stars/Knights.

Give the Leafs credit winning two games without Matthews. Their goalie looked like he was handling a hand grenade every time he hit the puck but somehow kept Boston from scoring.

Blue Jays/Nats right before Leafs/Booins...this will call for a case of stubbies and a box of doughnuts     

As has been noted widely by others, either Boston loses their second consecutive Game 7 after being up 3 games to 1, or Toronto loses their 7th straight Game 7.   :popcorn:

Neither is advancing past the second round.  I'm rootin' for the Leafs even though my bracket has the B's moving on...I never want to see the Rat in the postseason any more than I have to...
