Based on what I've been reading, it seems that nearly everyone is now wanting the Bruins over the Penguins in this series, largely because of the behavior of Crosby in game 1. Whining to the referees constantly and hiding behind them while pushing players significantly tougher than him (not that you could find any player on the entire Bruins team that's not tougher than Crosby).

And, though the series isn't over yet, after games of 3-0 and 6-1 both go to the Bruins, the Penguins would have to change something quick to have a chance to come back.

Crosby is a talented little pest, he's like avery but more skilled and not phobic of francophones! I say boston wins the series though, the pens have a habit of breaking down during series (I.E the 2011 playoffs vs philly).

I always thought Crosby was a quiet, humble guy. Evidently that's not the case.

From what I've heard, he was at one point. But that was before he actually played in the NHL and he let everything go to his head. Now he usually complains any time something doesn't go his way.

As for a series update:

Bruins are now up 3-0 (over the Penguins, of course) after a game ended 2-1 late in double overtime. It would take a miracle for the Penguins to come back from it, but it has been done before, and against the Bruins too. I don't think they'll let up at all any time soon even with a 3-0 series lead after that collapse that seems like a long time ago now, I mean, they've even won the Stanley Cup since then, but still.

Blackhawks lead the Kings 2-1 in what is currently looking like a more competitive series. I can't really claim myself an expert on anything to do with this series because I'm not really invested into it, but it's still good to watch on Bruins days off.

I say Boston wins that series, the blackhawks kings series will go to seven games I think. But I say Bruins Blackhawks for the cup.

From what I've heard, what cooldude said about Crosby before he was in the NHL is true.

But now he's Crybaby Crosby.

If only he wasn't so damn talented.

And the Bruins beat the Penguins in a 4 game sweep.

Really surprising how, in 3 rounds, the Leafs are the only team they had any trouble with, when you'd have thought that should be the only team they wouldn't have trouble with.

If Rask can be half as good next series as he was in this series, the Bruins would be pretty much guaranteed to win the Stanley Cup.

Overtime sucks win or lose. To go to three overtimes and lose on bad bounces when you should have been able to win it in regulation is... I'm much too tired to think of a word for it now, maybe I'll get back to it later.

Funny story: I'm in Boston right now for my sister's college orientation. We walked into a Tasty Burger during the 3rd period while the Hawks were down by 1. Then they scored 2 in 17 seconds. YOU'RE WELCOME, CHICAGO!
