Well since I havent actually watched any games thus far I cant comment, all I can say is its pretty dismal right now and if the Canucks go out in the first round, there might be a stir up in coaching or management. Only time will tell.

I wouldn't worry much about the Flyers, their goaltending will eventually let them down as always. Luongo? LOL Who's that? Shocked that Shea Weber didn't get suspended for the WWE ram your head into a turnbuckle style move on Zetterberg.
And I am gearing up and already rocking the red for Caps-Bruins game 2 in a little bit. GO CAPS!!!

Watching Dubinsky kill the Gatorade cooler was priceless though lol.
I am absolutely certain that Braden Holtby is the future of my Washington Capitals. He has been nothing short of huge so far!
We were definitely over-penalized there. Sens start that insane punching fury, and Dubinsky went to break it up and gets kicked out? Rangers were more hurt by that by far after losing him.
Fleury is really not playing well for the Pens. A shame. I don't like the Pens but they should be handling the Flyers a bit easier than this. Although the Pens keep giving these up short-handed and you can't always blame the goalie for those situations.
There was so much goaltender interference in last night's Rangers game it was almost unwatchable. It sent a message, you can get away with just about anything and no penalty will be called. Which is exactly what happened. Who would have thought that the Flyers/Pens matchup would be the cleanest played so far? Certainly not me.
Wow. Just wow.
How bad do you have to be to make the Flyers look like good guys?
down real hard on both teams. Usually you dont see this type of battling in the playoffs since no one wants to get thrown out or suspended. Cant help your team that way.
So Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, and the NHL Rulebook walk into a bar. The bartender says nothing because apparently none of then exist.
I'd love to know how Holtby gets penalized for roughing (rightfully) for shoving Chris Kelly, but Tim Thomas gets nothing for punching Backstrom with his blocker (according to NHL rules worthy of a match penalty) and KICKING Troy Brouwer. I think Brendan Shanaban is off enjoying an early offseason.
