Pens/Sens was a terrible game. Penguins looked fucking awful in every facet of the game. Still only lost by one though, so maybe it'll be ok.

i picked up alfie and spezza with my last two picks in my pool. :) i'd be cheering for the sens, regardless. in canadia, we generally used to cheer for any and all canadian teams left in the playoffs. now everybody cheers for sidney crosby and the penguins. its disgusting.

Typical Canadian mentality- align yourself with the strong man. If Canadian teams did well, they'd nut-ride like crazy. Instead, since Crosby's doing well, Canada adopts him as their blessed son.

Canada has no national identity, and this is why. They're spineless cowards.

Wings fell asleep in the third period and blew it against the Coyotes in Game 1. Detroit's bafflingly inept penalty-killing didn't help either.

Nice non-call on the Coyotes when Lidstrom got high-sticked in the face.

Phoenix is playing the style of game that will make quick work of the Wings...constantly knocking them on their ass and disrupting their tempo. If they keep it up, it's gonna be a short run for the Wings.

did you even watch the game? I thought it was pretty good. penguins were dominant on the power play. crosby had 3 assists, malkin had 2 goals and an assist. Even adams scored a beauty of a backhander.
The only thing that was terrible about the pens game was the defense. Very poor playing and fleury was complete garbage. I am always weary in the playoffs when he starts playing like poo.

i'm canadian and i've been a ranger fan for twenty years. don't tell me that everyone you know didn't get behind calgary ('04), edmonton ('06) and ottawa ('07) in their respective quests for the cup, mostly because they are teams from canada - i know i did. my point is simply that now if the penguins were to make it to the stanley cup finals, most canadians east of saskatoon would cheer for them over calgary, edmonton or vancouver to win the cup.

Yeah, he's been less than sharp for them. Also, you can tell he's getting off his game with the traffic in front of the net.

Also, the Sedin twins have been where? Not there...and when they are dicking around slashing and getting off their game....that's exactly what Chicago wants.

The fact that the Wings can wake up all of a sudden and pull a 7-1 win out of their ass just makes this series even more frustrating, because I know they're not gonna win four straight against the Sharks. Two, maybe three tops.

Fuck.

And you can call me biased if you want, but the plain fact is the refs in this series are really sticking it to Detroit.

Honestly, you're in the driver's seat. Are you familiar with SJ joking in the playoffs? This game is allllll they need. I honestly would not place a bet on the winner of this series at this point. The Sharks are FUCKED. I give the Canadiens the same shot I give to the Red Wings. If anyone can come back from 3-0, it's Detroit.

It might have been a series had the referees not decided to ignore (among other things) a cheap shot to the dome of Johan Franzen, which occurred about a minute before the game-winner was scored.

Go Blackhawks, I guess (more like, go anyone except San Jose and Shitsburgh).
