leafs had a good run. really good series against boston but I think this outcome was a foregone conclusion. hoping they can force a game 6 at least

Nice to see these interesting original-6 match-ups between the Bruins/Rangers and Wings/Hawks.

 

I didn't realize it, but TSN was saying that the Bruins and Rangers have not played a play-off series against each other in nearly 40 years? :unsure:

That SHG by Alfredsson was crazy. So glad the Senators won, watching Cindy Crysby lose is very satisfying.

In other news, my bracket is still perfect.

As much as I would love for the Wings to bring the Cup home, I seriously doubt it. At this point, I'll be happy as long as Chicago or San Jose don't win the Cup.

Last nights game would have been vastly different had Howard not choked on the Penalty Shot like usual, though I think awarding a penalty shot to begin with was a pretty weak call. But don't take what I'm saying as an insult toward Howard, I think he's easily one of the top 3 goalies in the league, he just has a record for bellying up in clutch situations like that. They look better then they did in Game 1 in the past 2 games, but still pretty bad, if they can recapture that same intensity from games 2-4, they should be in good shape come tomorrow night. Also, Abdelkader needs to calm his ass down.

Frolik made a great move...I don't think Howard choked at all.

 

@Blyaunte: I don't feel strongly about it. On the one hand, it may prevent some injuries...on the other hand, having less experience with checking leaves players more vulnerable at an older age when the size disparity between kids is different. I think when playing hockey one should accept that it's a dangerous game and there will always be injuries despite everyone's best efforts.

Hey boys! What's your take on the recent development from Hockey Canada about eliminating body checking at the Pee Wee level?

 

I, like obfuscator, don't have strong feelings for or against it. Apparently it has had some measure of success in Quebec, but only time will tell if it is the right move.

That's a shame about my bracket, especially after a questionable game 6, but what a solid post-season performance from the Red Wings! In a rebuilding year with a bunch of rookies and huge cap space, they not only made the playoffs, but took down a 2nd seed and took the President's Trophy winner to overtime in game 7. Unbelievable. So proud of my hometown team :thumbsup:. Watch out, eastern conference teams, Hockeytown is alive and kicking.

Detroit is insanely well-coached, well-organized and well-funded. They have been and shall remain a dominant force in hockey for years to come. If there is anything that the Red Wings know about, it’s winning-- and winning in the playoffs especially. They are the very model of a great hockey organization – perhaps even a great professional sports organization.

 

So - ok - final four match ups. Any predictions? What's the chances for an original six match up in the Stanley Cup final?
