Funny listening to most of the insiders and panelists predicting Carolina to wrap the series up. Have they watched series? The home team has been dominating.

I’m not sure what the Bruins need to do differently in game 7. I think Swayman has to be brilliant early and Bos needs 2 quick ones and they have a chance on the road. Not an earth shattering take but it has to happen.

All of your take is exactly right. They need to just handle business.

Hopefully the refs just get out of the way for this one

Time to steal one on the road.

Oh man. It's been an epidemic across the entire postseason. Every series has referee finger prints on it. Terrible.

It's been a mess. Zero consistency from one period to the next. Just uncalled crosscheck after crosscheck all over the ice and then "oops that guy fell over and I didn't see why so that's a penalty now"

It's becoming NBA level ridiculous. It's the playoffs. Put the (frank)ing whistles away.

i dont think Gary realizes that people like the violence of the playoffs, especially in R1. this has been the worst R1 I can remember in terms of physicality.

Well. Good luck to both teams in game 7. Home team has dominated every single game so if something different happens that will be the upset of the series.

Its been a battle. So many game 7's in the first round this year. I love it, but man it begs the question if the playoff format needs a restructure or not.

I personally am in favor of a conference matchup vs divisional. Travel is really not going to make the difference here. I think we see teams face one another too early. Some of these series would be more entertaining as conference final matchups to be honest.

Canes fans, no matter what the outcome. Best of luck. Been a ride.

Any kind of effort better than what they have brought to Carolina will be welcome. They seem to suck in that building

I'm not even a boomer, but I'd at least like to go back to how it was a few years ago. There's not much hate in these playoffs. The best we can hope for is like TB/FLA or EDM/CGY but otherwise most matchups are just regular season hockey with harder back checking

Why does it beg the question for restructure? Game 7’s are fun. The 1st round has been fantastic watch and exciting.

I would like to see best of conference, or even best of top 16 regardless of division. I am just not a fan of the division first, then conference thing. Prefer 1vs8, 2vs7 type format if that makes sense. Just think it gives better teams a shot to go deeper and you get more solid matchups in later rounds.

Personal preference of course. Not everyone's cup of tea

Well, they went further than I thought they would. Hard fought, but in the end shallow in some key areas.

Hope bergy is back for at least one more year. Otherwise this off season is gonna be interesting.

Thanks for the hospitality folks. Hope that's not the last we see of Bergeron.
