    Heard the other day that so far in the playoffs the teams that were hot going in are staying that way. Minnesota and Chicago were not hot going in.

    Go watch the Leafs-Caps third period. It's a different game than the slog that was game 3 in Nashville. I'm all in on the Leafs. The Chicago Cubs of the NHL.

    Kinda, Pit was pretty terrible going in but that was also sans Malkin, Rust, Maatta, Daley, Hagelin, etc.

    That will certainly be my mindset going into Game 4. I'm not quitting on the team; I'm in until the bitter end. Yes, objectivity requires an admission that I expect the end to be earlier and more bitter than usual. But getting to Game 6 is not a mission impossible.

    The officiating is pretty much the same as it's been every season and every season certain teams (STL, Nash, Anaheim, etc) play the Hawks like the Preds are.

    Clutch, grab, hold, interfere.

    In years past the Hawks had just enough Shaw, Bolland, Ladd, Saad etc to get through when combined with the stars.

    That's playoff hockey and I don't mind coz it's always been that way and sometimes the strategy works against the Hawks.

    They simply need to be better or go home. Champions overcome.


    I also don't think the NHL cares coz they know that the teams employing that approach typically won't win 3 rounds and enough talent will survive to make for a good Final.


    To your last point, I never give up on this group. They've come back from so many different situations whether in one game or in a season or in a series.

    It's not probable, but it's definitely possible.

    Strongly agreed it's not new. Just a significant reason why regular season results are no guarantee of playoff success.

    In years past the Hawks had just enough Shaw, Bolland, Ladd, Saad etc to get through when combined with the stars.
    Quite so. And Frohlik; 2013 Bickell, and so on... This is basically what I was getting at when I mentioned 'lack of depth' at forward. Maybe it would be better to say that while everyone suiting up has their selling points, we sure haven't been a complete team in the current series.

    Congrats to the CBJ and its fanbase. Outgunning the Penguins, even if only for one night, is a nice accomplishment. And from everything I could see and hear on the broadcast, the "5th Line" was in fine form. Good for them.

    I'm glad that Connor McDavid finally got a glimpse of what it was like to play for the Edmonton Oilers before he got there.

    Wonder how many games Draisatl (?) will get for spearing Tierney in the crotch.

    He probably should get 1, maybe 2... But, no history. My guess is the Wheel of Justice falls on a fine and a not so pleasant greeting with a Sharks player.

    That's apparently what happens when you want to have a morning skate and the Shark Tank staff are dicks and stubbornly enforce a long ignored arena rule and refuse to put nets out for practice or turn the rink lights on before 11:30am.

    I hate when arena staffs cause a team to let in seven goals.

    Eh, sometimes Scotty Bowman used to paint the visitor locker rooms during a playoff series or cut part of the bench off to shorten it.

    On the flip side, Bettman hates Canadian teams in the playoffs.
