Bruins' Cassidy calls officiating during playoffs 'a black eye' for National Hockey League

Bruins' Cassidy calls officiating during playoffs 'a black eye' for National Hockey League

Instead of allowing a awful non-call to derail their playoff run, they went out and won the next three games, outscoring the Sharks 12-2 to earn their spot in the Stanley Cup final.

In an intense rant during his postgame press conference, Cassidy called the officials' decision not to call what appeared to be a blatant trip by Blues center Tyler Bozak "egregious", adding that the quality of officiating during the postseason has been a "black eye" for the National Hockey League.

With the series tied at two games apiece, the victor of Game 5 will be one win away from winning the Stanley Cup. Following a controversial no-call where the St. Louis Blues' Tyler Bozak appeared to trip the Bruins' Joel Acciari, fans in Boston went into an uproar.

Bruce Cassidy is not happy and it's not just because his team is down 3-2 in the Stanley Cup Final.

Can the Bruins go into St. Louis and steal Game 6 to bring the series back home for Game 7?

Cassidy said defenseman Matt Grzelcyk, who has been in the concussion protocol since Game 2, also will be a game-time decision.

But it's St. Louis - whose Rams lost to the Patriots in the 2002 Super Bowl, and whose Cardinals fell to the Red Sox in the 2004 and 2013 World Series - that is one win from skating off with the Stanley Cup.

DeBrusk said the Bruins are big enough to go toe-to-toe with the hard-hitting Blues, but aren't capitalizing on their own skating ability. We played we until the end, but we need results at this time.

Reports have floated about Chara's health and availability pretty much since the injury took place, and majority conflict each other.

The series was tied at two wins apiece entering Game 5. "We've done it before", Krug said. "Not once did they say 'a stupid play'". "We haven't done anything easy all year". St. Louis wasn't overly dominant, managing just two shots on goal in a 13-minute stretch following its score, and yet the Bruins were even more lifeless, blanking on each of their extra-man advantages with still no signs of explosion from their big-name top line.

"I thought we responded well".

The Bruins have been equally as ineffective in 5-on-5 competition as of late - a serious concern for a team that employs Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak.
