    Lightning-Canadiens has been entertaining so far as well.

    Not surprised Pittsburgh won, but Columbus showed a lot of fight and was right there to steal that game. Might have a more competitive series there than I originally thought.

    Especially in hockey. Never see as many upsets in the other sports' playoffs than you do in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

    Just realized ...

    You didn't watch the game, did you?

    We were trailing 3-1, and scored 3 unanswered to win.



    I was straight up pissed at Fleury on the weak-*** shorty he gave up - dude didn't even get good wood on the puck.

    But, he stood strong afterward & we responded!

    TRUE. Just not THIS series. :lol:

    I did watch the game. For some reason, when Columbus went up 3-1, I had a feeling it wasn't to last. Still, it was a good game to watch along with that great Lightning-Canadiens OT game. Honestly, I think this was the Blue Jackets' chance to win in Pittsburgh. I know anything can happen, but I don't see Columbus winning game 2.

    As a Flyers fan, I'm going to root like hell for them to win the series, but this is a situation where my head and heart say two different things. If they can get a split in the first 2 at MSG, they have a good chance. If each team holds serve at home until game 7, I'm not a big fan of their chances with their recent struggles at MSG.

    **** it, Let's Go Flyers!!!

    Penguins hockey - you'll pay for the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge.

    Wow!! What a game. Flyers break their 9 game losing streak at MSG. Now they go back home tied 1-1, and all they have to do is take care of business at home.

    My son's an even huger Kings fan than I am a Fins fan - attends maybe 15 Staples Center games a season. He's very upset. So of course that's who I'm rooting for also.

    How bout those Habs? To be perfectly honest I'd be concerned as a Penguins fan, they same to be missing something this year. It's really hard to trust Fleury anymore either, I think they take the first series but I think the physicality of either the Rangers or Flyers will give them fits. Still a much better draw than my Habs will get, I think the Pens win in 6, but if it goes 7 it's anybody's series. As for the Kings than series is all about the home team, even with the Sharks looking so great you could see them losing two on the road. Personally I think they go back to San Jose up 3-1, they look too skilled.

    MAF ain't the problem right now.

    I'm (along with the rest of Pittsburgh) about to ****ing lynch Disco Dan. The former Jack Adams trophy winner can't seem to remember how to motivate one of the most talented rosters in the game.

    Have we been beat up with injuries? Yep. So what. Everybody deals with that **** later in the season. We've been coasting for months.


    Buckle up, buttercup - IT'S THE GODDAMN CUP!!!

    Game 3 in less than an hour.

    You are the resident Penguins fan, so I'm going to ask you. If the Pens again fall short of making the Stanley Cup Final, do you keep Bylsma around or do you let him go?
