Yeah I saw that. Maybe they're all hung up in traffic. It was a 6PM start out in neverland.

One period in the books and it didn't take me long to hate the Ducks style of play. Slashes, late hits and cheap shots by the Ducks, especially Getzlaf. Doing his best Dubinsky impression.

Of course Dingleberry thought it was awesome.

The Real Deal is on a roll. Scored the game winner in Game 1 vs. the Mighty Clucks. Just scored again in Game 2.

After watching the first have of the game where the Pre-dators dominated, I was surprised the Ducks responded as well as they did. Quite a turnaround. Hoping for a long series.

And 4:30 PM on Mother's Day didn't help either. Honda Center should have a huge surplus of towels for Game 5.

Agreed. Good job by Anaheim coming back and making this a series.

Another tight one in the WCF last night. Preds come out with another win after being down.
These guys haven't lost a playoff game at home as of yet this season (I think?).
Three pucks found the back of the net but were waived off (1 for ANA, 2 for NSH).
Don't much care for the Ducks. Talented, big, ugly and somewhat dirty. Yep. Pretty sure I hate 'em.

I don't like the Ducks either, but Gibson is spending a lot of time sitting or laying on his back on the ice. That would look attractive to Pens shooters. And we've already beaten better versions of this in the Caps (and Jackets, to a degree).

Hated the Ducks since the first game. Getslafffff and Kesler are both dirtballs. Gibson got flattened in one of the goals waived off. Should the Preds/Pens meet in the final, Fleury will need to sharpen his stick.

Gibson did not return for period 2 of a scoreless game. I like the Pred's chances in the series, even without Johansen, if Bernier has to start in Game 6 in Nashville (assuming the Preds hang on to win game 5). Pens centers would be a strong advantage normally against the Preds, more so now.

3-1 Preds. While I would enjoy nothing more than a game 7 loss by the Ducks, I am ok with Preds in 6 just to get Kessler out of the playoffs ASAP.

Nashville deserves to be in the cup. They've been the best team in the West.

Anaheim is just a scum bag team. Tom Wilson would feel even more at home there.

Yes. Between Kesler, Getzlaf and Perry. Anaheim is easy to root against.

Jones and Milbury saying how it would be impossible for Nashville to win with Johansen out leading up to game 5. Oops :D

Their track record for being right has to be comparable with Eklund.

Kelser hiding behind his teammates in that scrum with 10 seconds left was funny. 6 on 4 and he's standing back letting the other 5 fight his battles. I don't mind hard hockey, but I hate guys who play like cowards.

You have accurately identified the three dirtballs on the Ducks. AKA the top three stars for Dingleberry.

Boy are Nashville fans obnoxious with all of the "You Suck" chants after every goal the other team gives up.

Let's add Nick Ritchie to this collection. Cheap shot, hit from behind, 5 minute major and a game. Intelligent move in an elimination game.

Nashville with the death powerplay, the major that creates few offensive opportunities, sucks the energy from the crowd, and energizes the opposition. I'll hope the short bench for the Ducks the rest of the night offsets the bad PP effort. Fortunate to be at intermission break.

Nashville 2 goals on first 3 shots and only 5 more shots through two periods. They are playing with fire.

Dave Manson son Josh is a bit rough too. Pens would get at least three more concussions in an Anaheim series
