Next on Versus..

World Extreme Cagefighting.

Why not let the Blues and Nucks go at it... it'd be more interesting.

Murray vs. Vignault would be great.

The Blues ******* suck. How'd they make the playoffs again?

By winning more than Detroit the second half of the season.

Vancouver is just a bad matchup for them. The only way they could beat a top tier team in a 7 game series is to have their goalie outplay the opposition goalie, and well...that's just not going to happen with Luongo.

I said 'Nucks in 5, seems like a decent prediction if the Blues can manage to get a goal or two at home.

Yes the penalties in the Pit/Phi game sucked. Fact of the matter is though, if Carter buries that slam dunk to go 3-1 midway through the third, that series is tied. You just can't make a mistake like that and the Flyers paid the price.

Obviously. But you can't just can't guys out of the play by slashing their sticks. It's a black and white call. It's probably the easiest penalty to interpret in the game.

Was it a hard slash to break the stick or was it one of those where the stick was probably barely together and it fell apart on its own for the most part?

I fell asleep, woke up this morning and came right down here to watch the highlights, only to see a 5-3 PP in OVERTIME for Pitt. I was thinknig, WTF? Then came here to see what happened.

Man...brutal.

You can't say the series would be tied. My guess is the Pens woulda gotten another 3 powerplays in order to tie the game.

:rolleyes:

It wasn't that hard but it was a fair swing. The main thing is, he was caught behind the forward and that was his last ditch effort. He didn't come close to getting puck. The only time something like that goes uncalled is when the ref doesn't see it.

s*** happens and the Flyers were unlucky, but they've gotta stay out of the box. The Knuble penalty was stupid too. Why crosscheck a guy who is effectively helping you screen, whilst on a PP? The Flyers have no-one to blame but themselves and I guarantee John Stevens is telling his players the same.

...and the "message sending" continues...

LOL. I missed the game, but it's never hard to figure out how a Blues loss ends. Let me guess: the crybaby Blues gooned it up to "send a message!"

Still haven't figured out exactly what "message" the Blues have been trying to send for the last two decades of this BS. :blink:

I know I'm going to sound like a Canucks Homer here, but the Canucks did all the message sending last night, right down to the final whistle. 5 on 5, the Canucks have been absolutely dominant, and they hit the Blues so much that they treat the puck like a hot potato.

Flyers are getting jobbed now.

The league decided they wanted the Pens to advance long before this series started. Even the guys on NHLlive commented on how the Flyers are getting jobbed in this series. It's blatantly obvious and nauseating how much they want to showcase Crosby in the NHL POs. Someone will knock them out, maybe it will be the Wings again. ;)

I don't see the Penguins beating either the Devils or the Bruins, even if they happen to suck off the refs. Philly is a highly undisciplined team who did well during the regular season but obviously doesn't have the right mentality for the playoffs.

exactly what im saying. discipline is so f***ing key in the playoffs, its how we knocked off calgary and san jose a few years back. philadelphia has earned a reputation for cheap shots and bad penalties resulting from emotions boiling over. they have great talent, but refs are going to watch them a little closer, i dont think itd be any different if they were playing another team. i dont know what to think about the guy running into biron, he was skating in full charge on a goalie that very far out of his crease, seems like an "at your own risk" situation. either way, i dont care. i hate the flyers and relish seeing them lose. reason being, i hate their style of play first off, and second my brother in law is a huge fan and he pissed me off royally the other night by calling me over and over again until i picked up after CBJ scored their first goal against us, just to piss me off.
