Still only 5 points out but that was a big loss.


Sometimes I think u are rooting for the flyers. How can't you be happy with tonight's outcome?


pens#1, I know exactly where he's coming from. It's cautious optimism that they really are done. He's just keeping a small corner of his psyche prepared in the event they sneak into the POs like in 2010 on a shootout win over the Rangers. Because if something like that were to happen, he needs to steel himself for a crapstorm. I know of what I speak.

Sorry to speak for you, pens2005, but you and I are pretty much sympatico on this topic.

Flyers are still in it, as far as I'm concerned, until that little e or w/e symbol they use now is beside their name. They still scare me a little.

Did they end up giving Stamkos an assist in this game?

Damn!

I'm torn. Do I root for the Habs to come back and win because it's the Caps or do I root for the Caps to hold on to help the Pens with the 1 seed?

Why isn't the Tampa game on center ice? I can't find it mixed in with all the dumb MLB extra innings nonsense.

I think you turn off the game and leave it to the Universe. Seriously, I got nothing. I was trying to make the same decision myself.

Hmm. Maybe since we won, let MTL come back and win. I can live with that.

Doesn't matter now, Caps win. I don't think there's much of a difference between 1 and 2 seed. Other than, of course, home ice in the ECF.

These caps announcers are terrible. They just argued about whether ovechkin iced the puck or not. One guy was arguing about whether it was the puck that needed to cross the redline before he shot and the other guy was saying it was where his feet were as he shot that indicated which zone he was in. Problem was neither his feet or the puck crossed ther redline before he shot. These guys are the worst.

Is there a reason why center ice isn't televising he Winnipeg or the Tampa game?

Does that sometimes happen?

Walks the line!

Jeez, shut up, Joe!



It's the puck! And it's the follow-through of the dump in that has to pass the red line. I'd think an NHL TV duo could figure that out.

The Sharks are a fraud. Really have no idea how they're a 5th seed.

My desire to live forever is well documented. I seriously might consider suicide if I were a Preds fan, though. Their forwards are basically Fisher and a bunch of Zach Boychuks. Probably one of the worst groups of forwards over a 10 year period that the league has ever seen. They need to learn how to play against the Blues. 13 and 15 save shutouts for the (surprisingly porous) Blues this year. God, I hate the Preds. What a joke of a team. Hate them.

Note: I'm extra worked up about this because in my big money league my Bobrovsky shutout was mostly neutralized by Elliot's crap 15 save shutout.

Sharks suck. Patrick Marleau is a joke. Hate him. Just like the Preds.

Note: Another fantasy-related rant.

Nah...the Preds forwards have no talent at all. At least Boychuk is a Quadruple A-er...notably, he was too talented for the lineup, and was banished...

What if they had four first round picks instead of Shea Weber...they'd be fighting to get out of 31st...

It would be awesome if Columbus ousted Detroit for the 8th seed.

They needed (before this game) to go 7-1-1 to have a chance.
