    Well apparently Murray really is a different guy in the playoffs. Good start for him.

    Sheahan has been very good in Pittsburgh. I am happy for him, even if I don't like the Pens.

    Ghost could have low bridged him, it would have probably wound up a clip, but I guess he didn't want to get there, it was his only way to stop him. The hip-check is a near dead art, but he needed to go for it.

    As I expected Elliott looks like trash. I watched his shutout the other day and he played like trash and while getting it. I picked Pitt in 4 because of their pitiful goalie situation.

    jets seem like a paper tiger to me. As soon as they face some adversity they're gonna fold.

    I have nothing to back this up btw

    Elliott is pretty terrible. Hoping Mrazek can get in and get us that 2nd pick!

    the wild should be allowed to use their creamy white color on their road jerseys, would be the most glorious uniform ever

    Had Mrazek played even a little better in the stretch run, I think he would already be in.

    He really should start the second period, that was pathetic.

    But Mrazek does dissuade them from dumping. The Pens did carry the puck in a lot, but they were allowed to play at full speed the whole first period because when the Flyers did stack the line they flipped it in deep and forechecked the crap out of them.

    I was watching the other game, but Eddy O and Milbury seem pretty certain that we'll see Mrazek to start the 2nd.
    Let's go Petr!

    It can't be... The NHL should have never allowed Dallas to take Minnesota's name with them.

    I WANT THEM TO BE THE NORTH STARS!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry had to be that all cap guy, it really angers me.

    I loved the North Stars nickname and jersey. For shame NHL.

    As long as it's not PIT, ANA, SJS, TOR, TBL or NJD anyone else can go right ahead and get themselves a Cup.

    Good call, but nobody should be rooting for Pittsburgh or Toronto.

    Thread bans for those voters.:laugh: Just kidding.
