It was a disaster as soon as Vcvr, Pittsburgh, and Philly lost.

Devils / Coyotes would be about as bad a ratings matchup as you could have picked out of the 16 teams, though, except maybe Panthers/Coyotes.

The Canadian media is already dissecting the Canucks and Leafs rosters for next year.

It was a great game, two great goaltenders, and Dustin Brown, Mike Richards both had great games.

L.A. Kings go on to win 4-2.


I sure would have liked to have Mike Richards back with the Flyers this year.

Dale Hunter is leaving the Caps.
Thought he got as much out of the team as there was to get.

Never been much of a Dale Hunter fan.

Tonights game is very good. 0-0 after two periods and man were there some long shifts with players getting trapped in their own end with the long get-off.

Let's go, Rangers.

Hey, 1-0 Rangers!

16:00 minutes left, though. Plenty of time.

So that's what it looks like to have puck clearing defenseman. NY made the forecheck of NJ look mediocre.

Thanks for taking Zidlicky off MN's books. That bonus pick for making the conf finals is nice too.

Devils fan checking in. Rangers looked like they just wore the Devils out by the Third. Ever Ranger was blocking shots and just disrupting any flow the Devils tried to make. Hoping for some quicker and high gloved side shots on Hank next time or at least some shots on net!

I am by no means a Rangers fan. It's black and orange only. But after watching HBO's 24/7 this past winter, it's hard to not like those guys. I didn't get the same feeling after 24/7 with the Pens. I still felt like they were d-bags. So I'll be pulling for the Rangers the rest of the way. Besides, they'll be the last line of defense from preventing Richards and Carter from winning the cup with the Kings.

Blues fan here. I think NYR is the deal, and have since the end of the reg. season. But the Los Angeles Kings are looking like an unstoppable force right now. Defense. Goaltending. PK. And they are scoring goals, even against STL, one of the NHL's best GA teams.

#1 VAN. #2 STL. PHO on the ropes--not just down in the game and in the series, but not really looking like turning it around any time soon. Arizona crowd is not in the game, and LA has throttled any team which has fallen behind.

Ohhhhh, Coyotes announcer giving an assist to the refs on the LA goal on the 2-man advantage. Bitter, bitter man. Says if the refs are going to call it like that, then "just dive."

Kings. Freekin steamroller up in here.

The penalty on Doan was bogus. Lewis turned into the boards at the last moment to take one for the team.
Coyotes really do look like shite, though.
