The team that scores the most goals should win tonight. Will check the score later to confirm.

What exactly will happen tonight?

I feel the Blues are the team of destiny here..I picked them in 7 before the series started and I am more confident now that they will indeed take home their first Stanley Cup 3-2 in OT.

The Fan factor will be too much for the Blues to overcome. Bruins 8, Blues 0.

You do realize Ek just guaranteed a Bruins win don't you? He's right less than a broken clock is.

Spoken like a true Leafs fan... looking forward to the offseason as the concept of hockey in June is so foreign

LET'S GO BLUES. A season full adversity will not end without Lord Stanley's cup!

1. Binnington is lights out after a loss.
2. Blues are 9-3 on the road in the playoffs this year.
3. Pressure is on Boston to close this out at home.

That's another distraction. You combine this with the Fan factor and its going to be very hard for the Blues to win this game. Comparable to the Miracle on Ice at Lake Placid. Do you believe in Bedlam?

i wonder if he ever thinks about the fact that his family and all the people that he works with on this website are aware that he hasn't been on the ice for 12 cup presentations? like does he think about that at all when he's typing out these lies or is blocking that sort of thing out a side effect of his illness?

like, does he even think about the fact that taking the mask off triples down on the absurdity of the shania lie?

I'm still not over the SCF 2009 game 7. I don't think I ever will be.

Ek's been living this lie for so long now that he likely believes he really is the fictional character he's created. We all know he's full of crap and has no sources yet he keeps pretending that he does. I think it's past being a pathological liar now. The on ice Cup celebrations is just the latest BS. I'll give him credit. He's a hall of fame troll. He's also a lying mastermind. He sits in his basement and makes money. Let's face it. Ek is a Genius.

Can you possibly come up with a more subjective and random way to analyze the game of hockey? You just invent some random factors with some random scoring system. This is totally meaningless. You also seem to move the goalposts on a daily basis. One day it comes down to goaltending and special teams. Then you introduce 4 new factors - skill, momentum, hunger, blah blah. And if all of that is tied then it comes down to luck. Now 11 new factors, including nonsense like the Fan Factor, and whether the teams are Below or Above Expectations.

Honestly, do you really think the Blues have an advantage because the players will be contemplating about the standings at Christmas and where they are today? So in a 50-50 board battle or during a key faceoff this is going to help make a difference?

And despite all of these 11 factors you fail to mention luck. Sorry. But in a Game 7 between two fairly evenly matched teams it may come down to which team gets a fortunate bounce...a deflection, a goal post, a broken stick, a bad line change. That's likely what it comes down to. Bounces. And goaltending. Either goalie has an off night and it's over.

But sure. I'll be watching for how the Bruins have the "Last Game Carry Over" effect worth +2 which is offset by the "Style Versus Opponent" that nets the Blues a +1. Surprised the folks at Hockey Night in Canada haven't invited you to shed more insight during their telecast. Then let you cut away in the 3rd period to get ready to go on the ice.
