[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Bruins win Game 7 - Here's Why? : Umm, what? I have no idea what you just said here. I am not sure you did either. You're clueless if you think Boston hasn't been outplayed in this series. "Close" game or "tightly matched"? They threw away Game 4. DId you watch Game 4? Did you see them not go for the kill in Game 6, wasting time, and making major errors losing the lead? Look, those were not losses where a team caught a break and beat the Bruins, capitalizing on a play and scoring a great goal that is not able to be defended. They collapsed. When you think about it, Boston has set up TB for the majority of their goals, whether it be on the PP or in Games 1, 4 and 6. It's not like they've been consistent in this series. And they give up a goal within a minute in half the games!! Please stop with your outrageous homeriffic and self righteous attitude telling my how my opinion should be. I watched these games and I know a lot about hockey. It's not just you who knows the game. My negative feelings about Jacobs or the past has absolutely NOTHING to do with the present. I have waited 30 years for a Cup here. Your arrogance is ridiculous. Some fanbases have it worse, but don't question my loyalty and fandom. Won't work.

Not to steer you away from your beef with SanDog (actually, it's at least in part to do that since I want only good vibes from all Bruins fans for tonight), but your description of the series so far actually jibes with a prediction I made about how the eastern conference finals would go--and it bodes well!
(True, I originally predicted it would be the B's facing the Caps, but that's a minor detail ;-)
What I predicted --and modified to say the same about Tampa--was that the series would go 7 and that some of the games would be "ugly" for Boston...this has indeed been true. Game 1 was truly awful, game 4 was the blown 3-0 lead, and Game 6 the Bruins just did not play smart or well when it counted.
BUT my prediction was that the B's would win all the tight games of the series (true for the 6-5 game 2 dhootout, the game 3 "perfect road game", and the Game 5 squeaker not salted away until pev's en.)
For Game 7 I predicted another close one with Bergeron assuring a trip for the Bruins to the Stanley Cup Finals with an empty netter as the B's win 3-1.
Why not, eh?
