    Honestly, the best thing that could happen is Price steals the series, taking them out of the Laf sweepstakes, and then the Habs get destroyed in the next round. Talking to my friend (Habs fan) right now and he is just so conflicted at the moment lol.

    So far, Pens and Habs was easily the best game so far in terms of intensity. That was a fun game to watch.
    The playoffs of the unexpected might just be in the cards.

    Price has had good games before too during his decline, so it's too soon to say he is back. However if this is him going back to vintage price, the playoffs take on a whole other dynamic.

    Too bad about Scheifele getting hurt. It looks to me like Thachuck's skate hit Scheifele's ankle at the boards.

    You could see the agonizing pain on Scheifele and Maurice's faces.

    I want PIT to win still, but at least it won't be a sweep.

    1/5 on the teams I wanted to win today... Carolina was the only one able to finish the deal.

    I've had that happen to me and I dislocated my knee cap. Could be the ankle but the way he reacted leads me more towards something in that area.

    That Scheif injury looks accidental. Not that Tkachuk deserves the benefit of the doubt, watching the play in real time from the one angle is pretty clear to me.

    Tkachuk was going to pursue a hit but as Scheif turns he backs off), but he was going fast and as he was deciding to avoid the hit and stop, his right skate wobbled and skid off the ice. And unfortunately caught Sheif in the wrong spot.

    Watched all the games yesterday for a full million hours of hockey.

    Thought the Canes/NYR had the most intensity and physical play.. The Flames/Jets was the most physical series.

    Montreal beating Pens the most surprising, unless you don't think offensive stars guarantees a win.

    Other players around the league consistently do the exact same things that we endlessly destroy our players for. We just don't watch them as much, or have as much emotional investment in every single individual action.

    good post. Babcock had his warts, no doubt about it, but he's not the antichrist some make him out to be.

    Pit has lost 5 or 6 straight playoff games now. Kinda stunning for a franchise that went back-to-back fairly recently.

    I actually think it’s 7. And Murray has lost 8 straight which is some sort of record

    Yes, you're right. I couldn't recall if they had a 3-2 lead against Washington in 2018 or not.

    Boston is playing a non-critical series now. He'll be back in time to break our hearts and have us screaming at JFJ again.

    There were only really two... Calgary, Islanders and Carolina were the higher ranked teams.

    Edmonton played like crap and needs to be a lot better. Montreal got lucky. Pittsburgh was the better team but they got a lucky first goal and a few good bounces to go their way. Price was amazing too. It's good they won't get swept, and I think it exposed some weaknesses in Pittsburgh that some of the top 4 teams may be able to exploit, but Montreal will need to continue lucking their way to wins if they want to get past the play-in.

    Mr. Playoff Hockey Phil Kessel with 2 points in this one. There are a tonne of things you can say about the guy, but he shows up come playoff time. 8th most points in the last 5 years, and 6th highest PPG amongst the top 10 after Crosby, Couture, Ovechkin, Kucherov, Backstrom.
