+1. Although I hate NJ as a state and team, I would like to see Adam Oates get a cup. The way he has been rejected by the NHL hall of fame is a disgrace. The Bruins should have retired his number. They should have picked him up as an assistant coach when they had the chance.

Bryz wasn't the problem in this series. I would even go so far as to say he was the best Flyer vs. The Devils. That ridiculous Puck handling incident aside. I think the injuries on defense finally caught up to them. Tired defenseman spending minute upon minute in their own zone took its toll. The good news is, this team is very young and will only get better. But they're going to need to find a replacement for Pronger and that may require trading one of those young players. Also, as good as Jagr was in the regular season, I'm not so sure resigning him would be the best move. But I could go dither way on that one.

The Rangers almost pulled it off again, but after a bit of a shady goal, they were left only 30 seconds to come back from 2-1.

Looks like the refs could have called goaltender interference on their goal, but there wasn't enough time to score the necessary second goal to force overtime.

So it's game 7.

Playoff hockey-- it'll make you nuts.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say... Caps!

Because the way this playoffs is going, it is the only pick that makes sense.

That's exactly why playoff hockey is the best in all of sports. It's unpredictable and anything can happen!

game is killing me. Caps looked like shit for15 minutes in the first period, but seemed to have pulled it together in the 2nd so far at least.

I'm feeling a 3rd period is going to be ours..overtime will be anyones calls...till then

2-0 Rangers by Del Zotto!

Ovie gives up the puck, falls on his arse, then lays there for a moment and finally cruised to the bench while watching the goal.

Caps just score


2-1

yeah, he had a shit game.

Congrats Rangers, you played better and deserved the win.

Part of me is happy the Caps made it this far as I didn't see it happening, the other part is frustrated by yet another 2nd round playoff exit....ugh...better luck in 2013.

Go Phoenix!

I'm feeling the same way about the Flyers, but I don't wish the Devils luck. I hope the Rangers put the smack down on 'em.

Let's hope we have some good playoff rounds coming our way. At this rate the season will be over sometime in July.

LA/NY Final. Anything else and it will be a ratings disaster for the NHL.
