Hence why he's the Pens' 3rd pairing PK guy and not in the top 4.

One of the talking heads on TSN referred to the 'soft underbelly' of the Pens. Specifically, Fleury, but even more critical in his opinion (which the others agreed with) was that the Pens had no D better than a 4-'if that'- other than Letang.

A Chicago-Detroit series would still be pretty awesome though.

If Det-Chi happens next round, I wouldn't be surprised if Det beats them.

Bruins can't get out of TO tonight.

I'm sure Jack Edwards will use this as an excuse when they lose tomorrow.

Statement from Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli:

"Late during tonight's game we were made aware that there was a m̶a̶l̶f̶u̶n̶c̶t̶i̶o̶n̶ with our airplane. As a result we are staying in Toronto on Sunday night and the team will travel to Boston on Monday morning."

Jack Edwards added: No word on Matt Cooke's whereabouts at the time of the malfunction.

To me, Detroit seems much more comfortable with this game 7 stuff.

Plenty of time left...but DET is good under pressure and playing with a lead...ANA has good old BB who loves first round exits.

Even though I think he will be back(olympics), if the Ducks lose...this could be Teemu's last game in the NHL.

God this league really needs to start calling diving/flopping. It would take less than a week to get rid of it

Wonder who\what he is going to blame this failure on? I'm guessing not himself.

If the Bruins had a real owner like the Pens instead of that turd Jeremy Jacobs, they'd be on another plane by now.
