    Bingo. I remember when Pittsburgh played in the Cup in 2009, games 1 and 2 were back-to-backs. Can't believe the league would do that by making the final two play for the title on consecutive nights... Why subject teams to these conditions when every shift of every game means so much? Especially on consecutive days.

    2-0 in the first period doesnt win you a game but you cannot get outscored 4-0 the rest of the way in a game that gives away home ice. They sure as hell better be ready to stop playing like *****es tomorrow.

    When I turned the game on it was 3-2 Flyers. I agree the desperation needs to be there beyond going up 2-0. Same thing happened with Pittsburgh on Saturday. They were up 3-1 on Columbus and quit. The Jackets came back and tied the game and won in OT. POs me the Penguins don't have a raucous crowd like other arenas. The fans just want the team to win. They don't seem to care about creating a great atmosphere.

    Tampa Bay got robbed last night with the disallowed goal. No way that was goalie interference. BS call by a Canadian referee...

    usually the NHL pound for pound, so to speak is by far the best officiated league in professional or college sports of the major US team sports. but they can make some very bad calls or miss some very obvious calls. though the implication there is of course obvious.

    I agree about officiating in the NHL. It's usually pretty good.

    I called out that play because it completely changed the dynamics of the series. Montreal went on to win, 3-1, and now they are up 3-0. Had the goal held up, Tampa may have won, and the Lightning would be back in the series at 2-1. I wouldn't be surprised if Montreal earns the sweep in the next game.

    Down 0-2, the Defending Champion Blackhawks stop St. Louis, 2-0, getting on the board in the series. Maybe some concern for the Blues? They looked on fire at home in Games 1 and 2. Chicago looked like a different team in St. Louis than last night.

    Brent Seabrook suspended 3 games for his hit on David Backes. He began serving his suspension last night.

    Anyone see Matt Cooke's knee-to-knee hit on Tyson Barre? Cooke's looking straight at a suspension:

    I don't follow hockey, but it's pretty hot right now here in Columbus, obviously. It just doesn't translate that well to TV, IMO. But I watched some of the game last night. Devastating 3rd period for the Jackets. Those 3 quick goals by Pittsburgh just stole all the momentum away

    Nationwide was pretty electric on Monday night. I expect it to be the same way tonight.

    Columbus just can't quit in the third period. They had Pittsburgh by the neck in the first 5 minutes in Game 3. The game could've been far more out of hand. If the Jackets have a chance, they have to win tonight. Going down 3-1 to Pittsburgh would be an extremely tall deficit to overcome.

    I was surprised at the result that Montreal swept Tampa Bay. Pacieoretty gets a late PPG in the third to win it. One story of the series was the goaltending for the Lightning. Anders Lindbach is not a legit starting/playoff goalie.

    Big performance by the Rangers to get home ice right back. St. Louis being the point machine he is capable of being is big in the playoffs. One thing I enjoy about this team is the play with a rhyme and reason, there is purpose to what they do which was not there under Torts. They still play defense and block shots at a high rate which was Torts main contribution to Rangers hockey. But on offense there is puck movement and real offensive strategy to create goals. Much more enjoyable to watch this team under AV. Nash and Richards are both lightyears better than last year that helps. So is Zuuuuuuuc and of course MSL helps too. Then of course there is the guy pictured below.

    By the way is there a bigger POS in the NHL than Wayne Simmonds? Any time its clear the Rangers are going to win a game v Philly, first thing he does is start taking cheap shots at people, often with his hockey stick. They celebrated that he was one of a few players to score 20 goals and record 100 penalty minutes or some crap during game 2. To me that isn't a great achievement it means he put his team a man down over and over and probably cost his team with those as much as he helped them with goals.
