The Pens/Rangers was great.
Caps up tonight, fingers crossed.
I'm in in a hotel, so I'll have to stream and watch on the laptop.

I agree. I have never associated the word "sissy" with a hockey player, but Sydney "Cindy" Crosby could very well be the biggest dive artist to ever play the game. Talented and fragile. He's lucky he wasn't playing in the NHL 20 years ago.

Very talented but very fragile indeed. Plus so over hyped by the league I want to scream. Bettman's Baby.

Wings blew a 2 goal lead and went on to lose in OT last night. Darn.

Just settling in to hopefully watch the Rangers put away the Pengies.

That was a good game, Pens/Rangers. Lot of cross-bar shots, even down the last 45 seconds, from both sides. Rangers prevailed, so I'm happy.

3 PM tomorrow will be a nail-biter, the Colosseum is a mad house (and potentially the last game there, I'm sure the Isles don't want to leave on a loss).

Wow, a brutal series with the Islanders. Before the game, hits were thru 6, 277 Caps vs 270 Isles.
But, we Rocked the Red tonight!

New York: Go ahead and knock down the Coliseum, you won't be needing it any more.

Well the Canucks are done and the Wings too, so I'm going to need to find a team to root for now. Gotta love the playoffs.

I think coach Babcock's contract is a about up. I really hope the Red Wings don't let him get away; he's always said he doesn't do contact negotiations when the season is underway. Best coach in the NHL in my opinion.

I hope the Flyers sign Babcock. They haven't had a real coach since Ken Hitchcock, and arguably Pat Quinn.

As a Caps fan, I was sorry the Flyers cut "The Chief" loose, but it seemed to be a mess there.

Caps take on the Rangers in about 30 minutes, that will be a tough series to win.

The Flyers are a mess. Hopefully Hextall can turn things around. Once Pronger's salary comes off the books (in 2017!) at 4.9 million a year affraid , they'll have some wiggle room in free agency. That's why they need a REAL Coach, not a project. I too feel bad for Berube, he did not deserve to be hung out to dry like that, but something's gotta break. Too bad the Flyers can't fire Ed Snider.

For you Riff Raff - Go Caps.. Very Happy

Yeah it was hard to see the Rangers lose, oh well. I think the next game could well go their way.

Nope I really don't wanna see Babcock anywhere but where he belongs behind the Wings bench. lol!

The radio call by Caps announcer John Watson is incredible, XM NHL Hockey radio played it over and over today. I laughed out loud everytime!

We're on vacation, but I was able to watch the final minutes of the Caps/Rangers tonight. This is more like it. Holtby's first playoff shutout, nice work!

It's really been a bad series so far for me. Every team I've chosen to champion has either been eliminate already or in all likely hood will not survive the current round. Man I've never had this happen before.

My one prayer is that someone, anyone, steps up and takes Chicago down.

lol!

Yep, as Caps fans love to say "Well, maybe next year".....
When my Penguin fan buddies were teasting me about "what happened". I had to reply:
"We lost a thing called a "Game 7" in a "Second Series" I know Pens fans are more used to the word "Swept". Still talking trash, even in defeat.
At least we took a 2nd round to the limit. We just couldn't solve King Henry, he is a stone wall.
Holtby saved us from getting shellacked, hopefully his star is rising.
We got all the break last night, so no sour grapes here, we just flat out lost.

Rangers/Lightening should be good one.

Agreed regarding your Pengies comment. lol!

Indeed the Rangers vs Bolts should be a good series.

I think Holtby's best years are ahead, I'm really impressed by his play. I felt the same way about Corey Crawford the first time I saw him play with the Blackhawks. I just knew he was going to be a top shelf goal tender; Stanley Cup quality. No disrespect to Lundqvist of course, if not for him the Rangers would likely have been out after the first round I think.

I also think Trotz is a great coach, I really liked him at Nashville, and think he made a really positive contribution to the Capitals.

Speaking of coaches, now that Babcock has been given the green light by Detroit to talk to other teams I'm thinking he's all but gone at this point. Detroit's loss will be a heck of a gain for another team. On the other hand he has been behind the Wings bench for 10 years and all things must pass so maybe it's time. I dunno.

Amen to that. I'm rooting for the Rangers, as a lifelong Wings fan there's no way I can back Chicago. I'm no Ducks fan either so I'm not paying attention to that series.

lol!

I agree. Hawks/Rangers would be a classic final.I don't think the Nhl and Nbc want to see an Anaheim/Tampa Final
