My Vancouver in 6 pick is looking fairly unlikely at this point...I almost feel bad for them. Honestly, I want(ed) Luongo to succeed...win at least a round...ah well...it's not over, of course, but this is a steep hill...the Sharks are tough to beat in the Tank...

Man, Vancouver has some weak playoff performance lately. Wonder if they'll have some more riots?

It's high impossible to predict a series b/w the Nucks and Sharks.

It'll be won by whichever team chokes less.

Ok, since when has Steve Oleksy become the best D man on the planet?

There is something different about this Sharks team. They were not the best team in the west, they were sorta of quiet most of the year...maybe this is the year they do well or they will blow a 3-0 series lead to Vancouver.

Is there any explanation for a fan base that still starts a "Potvin sucks" chant thirty years after after the guy left hockey, even when they aren't playing the Isles?

NBC will stick through Rangers-Capitals through two overtimes. If we go longer, the game will be sent to CNBC everywhere but NY and DC.

The longer this series goes, the better off the rest of the East will be.

Who did that?

Rangers fans do it at least once a game.

Doesn't get more obvious than that and the refs still blow it.

NHL Refs are absolutely the worst. How do you miss that?

When refs aren't even calling the objective penalties, something is very wrong.

Let's ride this baby to triple OT and then see a Rangers win.

Very entertaining scoreless game. Some huge saves by Lundqvist keeping the Rags in it.

Weird watching the Caps play now since they finally seemed to have learned how to do a lot of the little things right which are key to playoff success.

Can't wait to see the end of the game preempted for derby coverage.
