7-0 is traumatic. I'm hoping the Oilers don't recover from this.  :thumbsup:

Dante, your boys went all Hasek era Sabres in the OT...man, seems like every line the Oil throw there is a Top 5 pick on the line.

 

Still hate Sek-er-a vs Se-ker-a.

Congrats to PITT.  CBJ did not have goalie at his best, missed best offensive defenseman for 2 games.  A lot to be proud of and excited for next year.  CHI and CBJ both leaked oil towards the end of the season, carried over into playoffs and are now out.

I started watching the Penguins game and noticed after watching Caps Leafs the game was in slow motion.

If the Caps can pull it off I don't think speed will be an issue as they claimed last season.

I have got to say that being a fan of a team that makes deep title runs is great. Reminds me of being a bills fan in the 90s. I have been here for the pens runs to the Stanley cup in 08, 09, and 16. And it feels like they have another strong one in them this year.

Yep looks like they have all the pieces in place again! They will be tough to beat for sure!

They look good despite Letang not being available for the playoffs.

Watching the West games and all 8 West teams would wipe out any East playoff team they face.

 

Just like the Bills the weak conference is a rosepetal path to the Final.

Yeah they had that game. Went to semi turtle mode. That never works especially on the  road. And it's almost impossible for them not to have a line with a top 5 pick they have had so many over the years.

True except for the Penguins. That team is loaded I don't know how they keep all those guys paid.

You got that right. Sharks had that game in their grasp and they chose to play defense in the 3rd period. I don't understand it.

 

I'll be at Game 6 on Saturday. I just know the Tank will be electric.

I thought the Rangers looked fast last night and LUNDY can turn any series in their favor.

I was lucky enough to go to three playoff games last season.  Build up before the game is super hyper. I wonder who will open up the door coming out of the dressing room? Have fun.  :thumbsup:

Thanks. It's been a long time since I've been to a Sharks playoff game, and they are the most fun.

 

I love the pre-game rituals, and adding the guest celebrity to open the door is a fun moment.

 

Watching the Sharks enter the rink through the shark jaws as they play Metallica's "Seek and Destroy".

 

Then that great Sharks fans moment right before the singing of the national anthem. When the fans yell out, "HEY EDMONTON.....YOU SUCK!!!"

Statistically, I am not sure that's true. Other than San Jose, I think the top east teams had more wins against the west teams.

Usually true until the Finals. Things even out by then. I love watching the West games in the early rounds.

Anyone see that ridiculous dive by Kadri tonight? The one where Ovechkin barely taps him on the arm and he like flails his whole body, falls to the ice and grabs his leg/ankle (which wasn't even touched)?

That's at least the 2nd (or 3rd) dive like that I've seen from Kadri this playoff series, where he barely gets touched and acts like someone just shot him or something. The guys should have been an actor. He may have missed his calling there... lol.

Lol you should delete this now before you look like a fool! Any idea why it was not Ovi who went to the penalty box?

4 of 5 games go to OT. That's a close series. I'm shocked myself!
