The Bruins need to step it up now

The Bruins need to step it up now

Tom Joyce ·

Alright, well this is a bit nerve wracking.

This series between the Boston Bruins and St. Louis Blues has been highly competitive so far, but it's hard for Bruins fans to not be  a little nervous this point with the team trailing 3-2 in the series following Thursday night's frustrating loss.

Tuukka Rask has been getting the job done in the finals, no matter what the naysayers might think. The guy has allowed 12 goals in five games during this finals series which averages out to just 2.40 goals per contest. So, in other words, there's been two games where he allowed three goals and three games where he allowed two goals. When you're facing off against the best opponent imaginable, that's honestly pretty good.

A lot of Bruins fans are rightfully mad about the non-call in Game 5 on a super dirty hit, and rightfully so...

The Bruins had the puck midway through the third period and Tyler Bozak of the Bruins leveled Noel Acciari. This led to a turnover which resulted in a Blues goal.

However, what it really should've resulted in is a major penalty.

Now, would that call have made the difference in the game? I don't know, but it certainly would've helped. Any call in the Bruins favor would have been advantageous.

Now the Bruins next game is this Sunday, June 9 on the road--which is a fundamental disadvantage. So if they win it, they come back to Boston for a Game 7 and either team will have the chance to win that game. But if they lose Sunday, their season is over.

We're not gonna check the betting odds this time because they'd favor the Blues--and that's not a good thing.

Anyways, hopefully the Bruins can get it together, rally back and win this thing....
