Rask was unreal.  He looked like regular-season Vasilevsky. 

At least the Celtics lost.   :lol

Was away Thu-Mon and only got to see a period here or there of games. After catching up on some other stuff I got to watch the 3rd on tonight, what a game. Really strong shifts one way or the other in who was controlling play. Congrats to the Blues.

Thanks. Was texting with Chad saying that was setting up to be one of the most crushing losses ever given the Blues were dominating that game and it still went into double OT

Would have been crushed. Instead elated

Damn that was an awesome game.  Bishop was as unbelievable as any goalie this post-season.  The shell-shocked look on his face after that goal.  I almost feel bad for him.

But... YAY Blues!!!

No almost about it. He carried his team while they took 35 minutes off.

Here's how I think the Ken Holland hiring decision went down in Edmonton:

A conversation between Oilers Owner Daryl Katz (aka the Red Skull from Captain America) and President Bob Nicholson

Katz: "Fans are really pissed off, Bob. What can we do?"

Bob: "Hmm, I'm not really sure."

*lengthy, awkward silence*

Katz: "I've got it!! We need to make a big splash to distract everyone from our ineptitude. Can we hire some big name to come to town to appease the fans?"

Bob: "Great idea, Daryl. I'm personal friends with Ken Holland. I'll give him a call"

Daryl: "Wait, won't fans be even more pissed off with that hiring? I mean, they've been complaining about us hiring our old friends and all these old time hockey guys since the early 00's."

Bob: "Oh, but this time it'll be different. Sure, the guy is old enough to be McDavid's grandfather, has a poor track record over the last decade, and has no concept of how the current era NHL works, but I'm sure it'll be fine. It's Ken Holland, afterall."


And so begins the next 10 years of no playoffs :(

And I realize it may be insensitive to make fun of a man with a serious health problem, but the dude seriously looks like the Red Skull.

Congrats Kev and Gary. I really liked what what Maroon brought to the Devils last year and was sad to see him go in the offseason, happy to see him stepping up :tup

 :tup  That was a pretty cool moment for him. His son was there....he scores a huge goal for his home town team.....real happy for him. That line of he, Thomas and Bozak has become quite the grinding line.

The amazing thing is that the Blues have somehow gotten to the conference finals despite two of their top offensive players (Schenn and O'Reilly) being largely invisible for long stretches, although Schenn played well last night.

WHOOOO.   GAME 7 today!  For obvious reasons, I need the Sharks to lose.  I feel like they stuck around way longer than they should have and the moment people should have finished them off when they had the chance, that's the moment the Sharks get momentum again.  It's time to kill that.

That overturned Colorado goal was ROUGH!  Huge momentum change.  From what I could see (which was hopefully less clear that what the NHL had access to), it was too close to reverse.

Hopefully the Avs catch fire in the third period.

Sharks vs Blues. Two of my favorite teams in the West and the entire league. Hopefully one of these teams can finally bring their fan base the joy of winning a championship. I cant even stomach the idea of Boston winning three out of four championships over the course of a year.
