Doesn't help that the NHL East is like the NBA West. Once you get to the finals it's a step down from playing your way through the East. Once they get through the Caps it's a much easier road, and really Ottawa gave them everything they had too. That's why playoff re-seeding needs to happen. #1 and #2 in the second round is just stupid and should never happen. No other sport does that. I wouldn't even be sad if they got rid of the conference play, and just went top 16 with re-seeding each round.

 

Yep, my best friend who is a Pens fan, and me were saying all along the winner of Round 2 was going to win the Cup in all likelihood. In that sense, the NHL playoffs has been just as predictable as the NBA.

Refs in their pocket every year.  How does Crosby get away with this crap?  Driving somebody's head repeatedly into the ice and you only get a 2 minute penalty and manage to incriminate the other guy who was taking it.

If you're not watching this game tonight, you have mental issues...holy shit, what a hockey game!  0-0 right now.

It could be the best hockey game ever played. I'm not watching the Pens hoist another cup. Watched games 1 and 2 and 5. Sat this one out. Good thing.
