Am I the only one that doesn't understand the pucks thing? If they represent wins, why are there 3 jets pucks in a row and only 2 dallas pucks?

They are for wins, and the logo on the puck is the home team. They won three road games in a row against the Jets (losing two at home in-between).

In the U.S., the Finals will be split between NBC (Games 1, and 4 through 7) and NBCSN (Games 2 and 3)

St. Louis hasn’t been able to beat Boston at anything since the 60’s. We’re due.

Rask and the Bruins’ top line have been super hot. They’ve also had a long layoff which can cool down a hot goalie. As I mentioned previously, every team that swept a series in the East were bounced in the next round (2 of them by being swept themselves).

It’ll be a tight series, I hope. Bruins have good depth too.

My limited knowledge is....Rask has been playing extremely well, and the Bruins are a a deep team with a physical defense like the Blues. Disciplined in that they don't take many penalties. I think they're slightly over 100 minutes total penalty minutes through the first three rounds where the blues are a little over 110 minutes with a few more games played. Similar teams. Hopefully it's a 4-0 route in the Blues favor. But, most people seem to think it's going to be a war and be competitive. Blues have been able to wear down teams as the series goes on and as games go on which isn't as likely against the Bruins.

Bruins leading points scorer is Marchand with 7 g 11 a
Bergeron is the leading goal scorer with 8.
Heinen is having a sneaky good postseason.
Rask has a save % of like 1.10 (.942 actually) vs .921 career

Blues leading points scorer is Schwartz at 12 g 4 a
Schwartz is the leading goal scorer with 12
I'll go with Sundqvist as having a sneaky good postseaon.
Binnington has a save % of .914 vs .926 career (SSS obviously).

Well....I was actually alive, but was a young toddler, didn't follow the team until a few years later into early mid 70's.
I was inside my mothers womb the last time the Blues were in the Finals....
