He sure did get boarded.

It certainly helped that Pietrangelo never came back after getting checked into the boards.


That was a fucking bullshit call, and the league should be looking at that hit, too. Yes, there was a penalty, but it wasn't severe enough.

Please. It was a straight up board. He didn't leave his feet. He didn't even square up on him. It's a bummer Pietrangelo looks hurt, but that was about the least malicious boarding penalty ever. King's hand is the first thing to touch him. I mean seriously, c'mon. A major on that?

It's not even a penalty if Pietrangelo is doing anything other than standing between King and the puck. If he's moving, he absorbs the hit. If he's not near the boards, we're not even talking about it.

The league has already announced that the hit isn't something they're interested in.

So... question what's bigger? The hole in Bryz's head or his 5 hole?

King pushed him FROM BEHIND, causing him to smash his face into the board. No league review is par for the course in the last couple weeks. Oh well, to each his own, I guess. Beg to differ, and whatnot.

Great article about this year's playoffs written last week, but it's still relevant, all things considered... http://www.grantland...he-nhl-playoffs


Best quote: "The best goalie always wins, but we have no idea who the best goalie will be until the series is over and we know who won."

In other news, I really hope the Caps can get up for the game tonight... I didn't see the game on Saturday (had to listen via radio), but it sounded like they just came out flat.

Looks like Pietrangelo playing tonight may still be up in the air. I read something today that looks like it was posted after practice yesterday he may or may not play. It will be taken day by day.

The Kings can't be this good.

Flyers vs Kings in a SCF would be bananas.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I'm chomping at the bit to see Kings vs Coyotes in the Western Finals. See which of those two goalies folds.

That would be a good goalie match up. I'd have my money on Quick though.

The Blues started off REALLY badly tonight. I think they'll pick things up, but I don't see them winning 2 out in LA the rest of the series.

Kings prove why I said they would make the finals. The goalie can win it all himself if he's in the zone.

That game wasn't really the Kings being good. It was the Blues deciding to not come out of the locker room for the first 20 minutes. In periods 2 + 3, the Kings only had 5 combined shots on goal. FIVE.

Come on. I'm pretty sure the fact that they were up by 4 goals might've had something to do with the low shot count.

Like someone said at the game, they forgot how to play hockey. Hell after last night I don't even think the Blues want the damn cup. I see them out now in 4 games. I hate to say that but the way the have played the last 2 games is why I do. I really don't even think they mentally left the locker room.

(Responding to this from the wrestling thread)

Poor Scorch can't use the NHL playoffs as an excuse to not watch wrestling for awhile.

(what happened w/ Pekka, man? he's not the monster he was in the first round.)


I wish I knew. What was the last game? That wasn't the Predators. I don't know if it's because they don't have home ice advantage or what. I kind of want to chalk it up to the fact that because they finished the first round so quick, they got to rest a while and got lazy. They should've warmed up by game 2, though. We'll see how things go when they play at home tomorrow tonight. Hopefully they spend the rest of the day practicing. There's still time to turn it around.

Preds losing Radulov and Kostitsyn for violating team rules. Looks like another Smith over Rinne.

Granted I only played the demo of Chime, but how the heck do you get shit on by Chime?

Kovalchuk has been playing awful since he switched lines. No loss with the way he's been playing.

Yeah, they went out and got completely shitfaced on Saturday night and were hung over for Game 2. Fucking idiots. Good to know where their priorities are...especially Radulov, who has always been a selfish prick.
