Canes Shut Out in Boston

the Bruins tonight were the physical, dominant team that they were in Game 1 before Carolina took control of the series, and we come back to Raleigh for Game 6 with the 'Canes still up a game 3-2 but taking nothing for granted (i would hope) knowing how good Boston can be.

i've never heard Chuck Kaiton complain about a call from the refs but he was all over the hit from Lucic on Seidenberg that according to the media "set the tone for the game"...Kaiton called it charging and suggested some officials might want to work a few extra games....Seidenberg responded and ended up being the one to get called for a penalty a few secons later, leading to the first goal of the game. 3 more were scored by Boston and none by Carolina, who only put 19 shots on Thomas all night...

'Canes need to get back to game 4 form for Tuesday night!

UPDATE my DVR crapped out before the end of this game, mercifully so i didn't have to watch every minute of it, but i've seen some replays after hearing about the bellicose 3rd period on the radio this morning, and the 'Canes, who have been so disciplined all through the playoffs, lost their shit, took a bunch of penalties and i fear generally gave Boston all the momentum going into Game 6, feeling angry and righteous after Scott Walker took out Aaron Ward (who for some reason, saw Scott Walker and didn't realize he was about to get punched in the face) with one punch to the face. Hopefully this unraveling for the 'Canes doesn't continue into the next game.

Still alive! Now if only the B's can bring THAT game against the Canes' Game 4 game, we should have some of best hockey of the playoffs. Game 6 could be a classic. Loving the hockey talk!
