Sounds like no Crosby or Letang so easy for the Flyers today. The way Wings have started this one they don't seem to want it too badly. A NYR team with key guys out and doesn't really need the points is outplaying them. Pathetic. Could be Flyers and Bruins in.

Flyers have looked like absolute shit against the Pens the last couple games so don't chalk that up as a win yet.

Talk about a rookie fucking move by Blashill. Down 1 so pull the goalie with 2:40 left and they didn't have solid possession. I mean WTF?!? What a fucking idiot. Bruins are bigger choke artists is the only fucking reason they are in.

When your franchise goalie bangs out of the final game of the season because he is sick, you don't deserve it

Or when a game comes down to a shootout and you keep your top goal scorer on the bench in favor of a defenseman, you don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

The bright spot with missing the playoffs is they hopefully realize their system sucks.

Sucks to lose a game like that when you take a 3-0 lead into the second period only to lose it 5-4 in OT but it was great to see Crawford back in net. Chicago sort of shot themselves in the foot by giving both Toews and Hjalmarsson the nigh off while still not having Shaw, Hossa or Anisimov back also with Keith having one more game remaining on his suspension. Game didn't really mean shit anyhow though, they were not catching Dallas or St Louis. Real season starts this week and hopefully we everyone is healthy for game one against St. Louis.

Pretty sure Kane locked up both the Art Ross and the Hart with 2 goals and an assist and Panarin locked up the Calder with 2 goals and an assist.

Yep. We need 2 points today to play the Pens. Otherwise, it's the Panthers. I don't there was a meaningful check last night so I expect more ice capades tonight.

Really surprised the Raggies came to play unless it was the wings who didn't though they got a lot of shots.

Wings didn't show up in the first but played well in the last two. Rangers seemed flat in the second and most of the third. The last 5-10 NYR seemed to bring it.

Impressive article. I wasn't aware just how bad Pavel's ankles were. I imagine it's hard to be upset with him as a Red Wings fan. Yeah the cap hit sucks, a lot actually, but it's hard to feel anything other than respect for Pavel Datsyuk.

Yeah I knew he was in pain but not all of that. The cap hit sucks but maybe someone will take it. He only gets paid 5.5 mil so maybe if they eat some of it they can make it work. Two Cups, three finals and four conference finals along with probably some of the best goals ever, it was fun. Get some cap relief and sign Stammer and we're fine. ;-) Well and help out that D...eeesshh.

Right up until they announce the awards! You have to admit it is pretty cool that he is likely going to be the first American born player to win either award. The Calder should be a slightly tighter race but it is not often a rookie puts up 30 goals and 47 assists for a total of 77 points - that is a rock solid season for a vet, let alone a first year guy.

Lastly, was also nice to see that all the playoff teams earned their spot, no backing in because someone else lost X in a row, no tie breakers, etc, etc. Should be a great playoffs!

Shame Datsyuk is in a position to harm the Wings financially if he leaves the league and returns to Russia, would be quite a cap hit for them - to the tune of 7.5 million bucks.

Amazing that the Ducks are in a position to win the Pacific if they beat the Islanders today.

Well yeah, obviously, but you can't just guarantee a loss for yourself. Obviously they'll attempt to influence the outcome, just gonna be interesting to see how much because they really do not want to win this game.

Agreed, he is a great player. I love watching him get into position, find some open ice and tee up a one timer to burn the goalie.

Except it didn't seal it. They lost to the Bruins and then lost to a Rangers team with 4 regulars out. If Bruins don't lay the biggest egg ever, he'll all they would end up needing was an OT loss and they'd be in.

Claude is a really good coach. I'm not sure they find better if they let him go. The Bruins were not a good team this year. Like I said they had no defense. I'm not shocked at all they lost like they did without tuukka in net. I can't believe people actually are honestly.

Doesn't that kind of show the team they were? Why are you surprised a team that played that awfully down the stretch got smoked with an AHL goalie in net? Makes no sense. They just were not good this year. Of course they played well at times. Mostly when Marchand was playing out of his mind but that wasn't going to keep happening.

Yeah, both the Flyers and Caps are playing solid games tonight. Going to be a fun Caps/Flyers first round matchup!

Hell all the first round matchups are going to be battles though I expect Dallas to beat down Minnesota and the Penguins to beat the Rangers fairly easily. The rest of the series's I would not care to wager on at all. I would probably favor the Islanders over the Panthers, Detroit could beat a banged up TB, Phillie could upset Washington, LA probably beats the snot out of Nashville, the Ducks and the Sharks is going to be a tough series and the Hawks Blues series is going to be an absolute grind, especially with Keith not being on the ice in St. Louis for game one.

Regardless of the outcome this playoff season is going to be very exciting to watch.

Julien is a good coach. He knows what's he doing. I think he kinda lost the team though. They've had some head scratching moves the past year though. Trading a 3 rounder for Rinaldo, moving Dougie Hamilton, and then drafting three players who weren't supposed to go that high in the first round. All terrible mistakes.

This would be relevant if our team never won a Cup.

Off the top of my head, I'm trying to think of franchises that have never won a Cup. Barbs, can you help me out here?

Off the top of my head the Sharks and the Whalers are all I can think of.

Don't like our first round match up obviously. Will be surprised if the Ranges see the second round.

Panthers and Islanders is kind of cool because one of them has to finally win a series.

Congrats to the philly fans for getting in.

Yeah, probably Coyotes - maybe St. Louis, Columbus and possibly Winnipeg. Not sure and I am off to bed so I am too lazy to check on google. Night all!

Hope the Hawks and Kings both exit early. Lots of talent in the league beyond those 2, would be nice to see it highlighted.

Really good coaches get their teams up and ready to play if a win means a shot at the playoffs.



Acting like the roster doesn't matter is hilarious.

That roster earned 93 points stop acting like the team did nothing more than shit the bed to end the season.

Hooray for regular season success! I guess I just look at differently. This Bruins team was not good. Most fans will say the same thing. Putting together 93 points is not that impressive to me. There was no way they were making any noise in the playoffs. Would have been embarrassed by the caps. The team had huge holes particularly on defense which is such an important part of the team. Look at their defense on paper. It's straight up awful after their top 2. Not sure what magic Claude is supposed to work with that junk. He isn't the one that ruined this team.

Honestly, I think the Bruins overachieved, if anything.

There has been some horrible mismanagement of talent in Boston. Trading Dougie Hamilton and Tyler Seguin were awful moves. While I understand the Seguin thing a little, it's just clearly not enough:

I think the B's will be fine, but to say that this roster as it's currently constructed is a playoff roster is just wrong. I love Krejci, Bergeron, and Eriksson, but there's just not enough there.

They'll be fine when they sign Jimmy Vesey.

Oh come on, it's a quality chirp. Flyer fans in here have as much experience winning the Cup as I do. Stanley Cups from the disco era don't count

:lol Of course that's a Pens fan (whom I applaud).

I am as ready as anyone for the playoffs, but I learned this morning that Matt Murray may not be able to go due to the head injury he sustained on Saturday. :lorraine

You might get a break, Rags fans! There's a reason Zatkoff was bumped to the No. 3 goalie.

Bruins fans were nowhere to be seen the last few months but show up after their team gets throttled and knocked out of the playoffs and come in here and chirp? OK.

This is could be a crazy playoff in the East. Flyers and playing well so scary for the Caps who historically choke. Rangers are banged up but so are the Pens, but Pens are playing very well, so who knows what happens there. Wings and Lightning has the potential to be good if the Wings that played the Flyers and the last 2 periods of the Rangers game show up and with the injuries that TBL has.

I already have the beard going, cause I can't shave too well with a 2nd degree burn on my dominant hand, so here we go.... Much easier to get excited about all the playoff series, when your team actually did make it in, whether I think they'll do well or not.

Do you expect anything less out of Bruins fans? :lol

Yeah, the East should be pretty nuts. The Caps SHOULD overpower the Flyers over a 7-game series, but the Flyers have been scary good lately, and the Caps are, well, the Caps. The Cats should beat the Islanders with how banged up the Isles are, which means the Isles could pull off a stunning upset. The Wings and Lightning series seems to be a toss-up because of the Lightning injuries and how sporadically the Wings have been playing. If the Pens can manage to put up 4-6 a game like they have been, it might not matter who's in net.

As to the bold, what the hell did you do?

Sounds really stupid but a carafe with hot water in it squirted out hot water, even though the top wasn't being pushed down and it got right on my hand. I thought maybe I had accidentally hit while carrying it but it was still coming out after I put it down. Hurt like a bitch, actually it was the hours afterwards sitting in the ER that hurt more being exposed to air but.... It doesn't hurt but I'm not supposed to take the bandage off or get it wet, which hard not to do when shaving. Thought about using an electric one but by it was getting pretty long at the time so I just said fuck it.
