It seems more and more like a lot of these series are scripted.  Seven of the eight first rounders are currently 3-2.

And so far tonight, two of the teams down in the series are ahead in their elimination games. 

Makes for lots of games on TV and ad revenue.

Oh shit I just saw the Blues have to play Colorado, who steamrolled Nashville 4-0. And took the Blues two out of three this year.

Ann Walton Kroenke owns the Avalanche.  People in St Louis hate her husband Stan because he moved the Rams back to LA.  On St Louis Reddit FuckStanKroenke is one word.  Some folks claim they never set foot in WalMart.

The Canes took 3 of 3 in dominating fashion from the Bruins in the regular season.  So you never know.

More fuckery in the Birmingham Toronto office. 

Capitals score on a high stick goal that was allowed to stand to send the game to OT. 

They need the win to force Game 7.

Just leaving FLA Live Arena after the absolute kick in the balls of a finish. 

For those who didn’t see, Tampa scored at 3.8 seconds to win 2-1. 

The Bruins are my team but the Panthers a close second as my adopted home team.   

This felt a good bit like the ‘87 Jesus wept game as far as the stunning end.  Just stunned silence after insanity for the last few minutes.

That was indeed quite the ending. How does a guy get all alone in front of the net like that?

BLUES. 1-1 now headed back to the Lou.

Because the Panthers’ d-men have really bad mental lapses at times.   And like most things with d-men, they do that in pairs.

Cheating fucks took out the Blues' goalie Binnington, then score the tying goal shortly after. 

Fuck the Avs.

I didn’t see it in the moment but just saw a replay. 

Sorry, but that wasn’t dirty.  And I hate Kadri for a lot of the dirty stuff he’s done in the past. 

He collided with the defenseman and then they both went into the crease.

Doesn't matter.  It went against the team I wanted to win.  Therefore, it was dirty.

Yes, I can relate. 

Kadri has actually really cleaned it up but he's got a long way to go to redemption.

The Panthers just can’t figure out Tampa.   The Lightning are going to make it 6 wins in 8 games the last two playoffs against them. 

Dominating play most of the night but Tampa gets a weak ass goal that will probably take all their wind out.

The Avs are just better. Could win it all. I cannot see the Blues taking 3 straight.

They might have had a chance with Binnington.  They likely win game three and go up 2-1 with him in there for the full game.  The Avs are definitely better though.

Didn’t Husso take his job during the season and start off pretty well in the playoffs?

Granted I don’t follow the Western Conference very closely so there may have been extenuating circumstances.

He took Binnington's job, but Binnington replaced him again in the playoffs.

It's not so much the goaltending. At one point last night, shots were 26-6 Avs. The Avs are playing hockey downhill and the Blues are on their heels. Generally, the more aggressive team that keeps the puck in their offensive zone will win. Not a guarantee, but it's like having a lot more yardage in football.

It certainly didn’t work for the Panthers last night.  At one point they had a 29-7 advantage in shots.   At the end it was 49-25 IIRC. 

But generally, it’s true. 

There is no question it’s mostly mental for the Panthers against the Lightning.

This is sad. Blues hockey is as dead and lifeless as Razorback baseball.

Lifeless except when they are hyper-focused on retaliating against Kadri.
