    He's certainly good enough to play on the penalty kill, doesn't get much time due to his 5 on 5 time and the fact that he typically plays all 2 minutes of the power play.

    Someone has to soak up the 20mins a night Emelin plays (including pk time). As long as the game is close Bealieau (sp?) won't play any more than 12-14 mins tonight. Weaver only plays bottom 6 pairing minutes so that means Subban, Markov, and Geogres need to play a little more. Could get a little fatigued by the end, especially if this game goes to ot.

    Subban looks anything but fatigued. Wasn't good enough to play for Team Canada, and wasn't deemed worthy of a long term contract 2 years ago. Now Bergevin is going to have to play a lot more and longer term than he could have. Proof that sometimes the people making decisions don't make the right ones. See: Brooks Orpik over Yandle.

    Chicago definitely needed to hear Chelsea Dagger as quickly as possible. Bonus to hear the song twice.

    Great start.

    Some slick passing by the Hawks towards Quick leads to a good chance only for LA to take the puck back the other way with a 3-way passing display of their own. Now 3-2 Chicago.

    LA looking confident now up 4-3 late in the second. Crawford not so much.

    Fletch put his jinx on crawford and pk.  Seems to be working.  For as good as crawford was in rounds 1-2 hes been equally as bad this series.

    Yeah, shupe. Hasn't looked consistently sharp. Not at all like a world beater.

    I'll never stop being amazed at the difference a goal can make. When the Hawks were down 4-3 in the second they looked slow, heavy-legged, beaten. The tying goal has them amped. They're bringing it. LA's playing amped though.

    Story-telling battle.  Did Crawford:

    A. Blow a 3-1 lead for his team?

    B. Give up 4 goals in an elimination game only to see his team's offense bail him out?

    C. Hold the fort when it mattered with 49 minutes of scoreless hockey before Handzus closed it out?

    D. All of the above?

    Depending on how you view Crawford, you could make a case for each of these options.  Tell whatever story suits you.  Fact is, this is the fourth straight game where Crawford has given up 4 goals or more to a team that isn't known for its run and gun offense.  You aren't going to win a series against a team with Jonathan Quick in net if you're giving up 4 goals every night.  He'll need to get his shizzle under control for games 6 and 7 to prove shupe's point about his ascension to money goalie stratosphere.

    He actually did play better after that last goal. I smell 7 games in this series.

    PS. Fletch could put the "Eddie Mush" on a Playboy party LoL

    After watching that OT the most apt comment I could make would be, WOW!

    That was a joy to watch. Simply great hockey. The polar opposite of the Rags/Habs clutch, grab, dive, clog it up, ice it, and play for a whistle style.

    The Western Conference games have been outstanding for the most part. I think whoever comes out of the east is going down in 5 in the finals. 6 if they're lucky.

    I hereby summon the same forces that are plaguing Subban and Crawford, to inflict a hot coffee spill on both Sandog and shupe today.  Right on the junk.

    Abra-cedfano-cadabra...it shall be done.

    Im just glad we have a moderately priced goalie with a proven track record of winning.  The huge amounts of cap space will give us lots of opprtunty to sign guys and extend key players.  :-)

    Gionta apparently was shot and that is why he thought he could land on Lundqvist.

    Quick check the grassy knoll.

    Montreal police force on alert. Still can't help feeling the Bruins should be the ones facing LA or the Hawks. Ah well.

    Nobody is going to give the Rangers a chance in the Finals, but they really do play a sound game and have limited mistakes. It's going to be at least 6 games no matter what....hope it's good hockey to watch. I'm kinda rooting for them. Not sure why. Maybe I just don't want to see Chicago or LA add to any "dynasty" narrative (which is just silly).
