    Congrats to the Caps, they earned that one.


    But the Blues, holy shit, major collapse. 5-1?

    I'm pretty confident about the Caps right now. They looked good on Saturday despite the loss and even more so tonight taking advantage of scoring opportunities. Glad to see Chimera grinding it out and getting a goal and Ovie stepping up to get the game winner.

    I'm drunk, time to call it a night :freaky

    Very excited for the Fyers/Devils game.

    I'm also getting sleep deprived.

    Let's Go Flyers

    Wow, what a miserable game.

    We didn't deserver that one. Hopefully this wakes the Flyers up a bit.

    Bit confused as to why their timeout wasn't used after that first or second goal? You know, get the boys focused again.

    Oh well, we'll win two in NJ.

    go go go Rangers.

    This is a great game, shitty ice or not.

    Every time he says "Holtby" I hear 'Maltby" and I throw up in my mouth just a little.

    I can't believe I'm still watching this Caps/Rangers game.

    My good I'm tired, 3rd overtime... no one is taking control.

    Some fantastically close calls on both sides, tons of hits...

    After midnight and I can hardly keep my eye

    WHOO HOOO RANGERS SCORE!

    Gaborik!

    Goodnight.

    So the Rangers won, but how about that Predators game?

    Looked like the Preds had them cornered all night.

    Will that suddenly become a good series? Can the Preds take two in a row?

    More importantly, will the Flyers stop playing like a bunch of girls get after the Devils?

    I bet Radulov sits again. 50/50 on Kostistyn. TooToo played well, you can't really sit him after that.

    I'm more interested in the Blues. Quick has had their number in the last two, they need Elliot to stand on his head.

    Seriously, the only way they're going to win.

    Well that was another piss poor first period performance by the Flyers. They better find another gear or they're not only going to lose this game, they're going to lose this series.

    I was thinking the same thing-- if they can't start matching speed and intensity, they're done.

    A few more bone-rattling hits might help the Devils decide they don't really want the series that badly.

    Brodeur does not look very solid, but that doesn't matter when the Devils are cycling down your end all period.

    P.S.
    We need the PP goal.

    Huh.

    For a team that wasn't real impressive all year, the Devils look pretty good. I guess that same can be said for the Kings. :dunno
