So Team GB beat France 4-3 in OT, which means that despite them losing all of their other games they get to stay in the top flight for another year. Here's hoping we get put into an easier group. Meanwhile, Austria vs Italy's 3-3 at the minute and the winner also gets to stay on for another year, since they also lost all of their other games EDIT: Italy won the shoot-out 3-2 after the match ended 3-3 after OT, so they're staying up while the unlucky loser is going down.

Who isn't? After all, it's the classic underdog story, even though we all know the Bostonian Empire will get another ring.

On the upside, at least you're massively clear at the top of the table and, should you be right about the Blues, then you've pretty much won Shof's playoff thing. Granted, Polska also pegged the Blues to win but unless he picks a different side which goes on to win then it's fair to say you're winner.

Assuming the Blues get that last win, I think Naz can still catch me too if we go for different teams in the Final.

So I got nul points that round. Disappointing but oh well, I never really had a lot of expectations going into this anyway. :p Anyway, I'll wait for Shof to tally the scores before I give my pick for Stanley Cup winner, even though we all know who it's going to be.

And they do, as they beat the Sharks 5-1 to win the series 4-2. Granted San Jose were missing a number of players due to injury but still, well done St. Louis. Let's be on the lookout for Congrats, Sharks! sometime soon.

While St. Louis has the opportunity to get rid of its Legacy of Failure, they do have a mountain to climb against the Bruins, which of course is a talented team, like it's Football and Baseball brothers, the Patriots and Red Sox, in the city of Boston.

While St. Louis would be a feel-good story for if they win, I think the memes will continue.

The team colors are appropriate; take the black for Boston and the Blue for St Louis and you have the Black and Blue championship

Which is exactly the way both teams play the game.

St Louis was last competing for the championship half a century ago. Their opponents? The Bruins.

Not just that but the Bruins swept the Blues. In fact, the Blues have NEVER won a Stanley Cup Final game in their entire history, so they have the potential to make history this season.

That's exactly what I think will happen as well. Yes, this counts as me jumping on board the "Boston in 5" train for Shof's challenge. Yes, I want the Blues to win as well, even though it's not going to happen.

I would suggest putting your money where your mouth is and going to a bookies just to place that bet but I can't remember if that's actually legal in the US of A. Either way, if you do go through with it, please keep us updated.

The tally:

Polska - 11 (Islanders, Bruins, Sharks, Blues, Bruins, Blues)
Elejamie - 6 (Bruins, Sharks, Sharks, Blues)
Tarsonis - 5 (Avalanche, Sharks, Canes)
Shof - 5 (Bruins, Sharks, Blues)
Viridus - 4 (No picks first round, Sharks, Canes)

Hopefully I didn't miss anything, like I missed my picks!

We here in Old England like to apologise for New England and their success. It wasn't our intent but these things just happen.

But in all seriousness there's still the possibility of them either getting overconfident and/or choking, either in the ECF or in the SCF themselves. While I doubt that'll happen, it'll be something to keep an eye out for. Just be glad the Celtics went out in the first round this season.


You don't understand our pain, so let me explain it to you in English terms. Let's say that Millwall got a good soccer team, and that said team went on to win the regular season, making their last game extraordinarily boring while acting like dicks, went on to win the Barclay Cup against their rival, and are now in the Champions League Final. This is how we feel about Boston. St. Louis all the way! Fuck, I might even consider rooting for a Canadian Team. Blech.

Technically speaking it's the FA Cup (which is sponsored by Emirates) and, as is tradition with English soccer teams, they've got more than one rival (so here I'll be saying they'll be up against West Ham since they seem to be the biggest rival) but other than that that makes complete sense. Indeed, I completely feel the same way as everyone else, wanting St. Louis to win even though I picked Boston to win the SCF.

Considering I don't play lotto (powerball and gift scratch-offs excluded) you might want to look elsewhere.
That being said: 6, 10, 13, 22, 28, 32, 34. Don't pick any of those numbers.
