Im waiting for the demise of Vancouver....

Just gonna have to wait a bit longer for the demise of the Snow Chickens.

How sweet itll be when they blow the full wad in Pitt in front of their adoring fans. Flyers lost on purpose just to get the hopes up of the Pitt faithful

Bush move on the timeout called <_<


Yeah I couldn't believe that. Pens are up, what, 10-3, commit an icing and then they call a timeout. Wow.

Hahaha this s*** is bananas... The best part about these dramatics, high-scoring, bad blood games: whoever does win (Philly) is screwed next round when the other team brings a goaltender to play :P

But in the meantime... YAY GOALS! GO FLYERS! F*** CROSBY and CO!

I see the pens finally decided that they did not wanna be swept in the first round

See Red Wings, Detroit 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs Round 2. Normally things like this happen, a sweepis very hard to pull off. It's no wonder why the closing game is the hardest to get.

PP's 9 to 2 in a series where Philly is up 3-0, I shouldn't be surprised but man, why does the NHL think the fans want longer series? I want the Pens out damnit!

Sorry, but what the hell are you talking about? Philly was 3 for 6 on the PP. Pretty sure powerplay chances were 7-6, just slighty different than 9-2.

Regardless, PIT beat PHI 6-0 at even strength so not sure why anyone would be fussing about reffing in this one.

This could be wrong, sometimes it is and I don't bother to check NHL.com so I apologize if I was wrong. What I said was more sarcastic then anything, truthfully I don't really care just really hate Pittsburgh :hehe:

And I just checked and they were actually 9 PP's for Pittsburgh and 5 for Philly, so my mistake.

This series is a joke, rather prefer the tight games between our Wings and Trashville instead of the gongshow these two are putting together. Will be another wild game 5 on friday, two teams no defense and no goaltending at all. At least Fleury showed some more nhllike skills the last two periods.

I find it hard to believe people would prefer this series over tight hockey games.

Not sure. He was pissed as f*** because he wasn't sure why either. He got crosschecked twice in the face? by Kubina I think it was. I didn't see any retaliation from him. But still, they kicked him out. :lol:

Still have no idea why they kicked him out. Get's crossed checked in the face twice and then get's kicked out. I'm guessing it was so he didn't do something "stupid" the rest of the game

Thought I heard that ratings for the NHL playoffs are way up, like 70% this year from last.

Well I can't imagine why. Half the series had a blood bath occur in them already. That's must-see TV! And the NHL responds by everytime a Pen or Flyer so much as farts by the opposing team, they get ejected.

Mmmm, how boring for fandom.

I guess the league wants to remain 2nd tier.
U GUYS ARE FUKIN ANYOING IM GONNA COME DOWN THERE AND KILL ALL YALL THE ONLY THING THAT SAVED UR TEAM WAS OSGOOD AND OSSGOOD SUKS 2 JUST LIKE UR WHOLE FUKIN TEAM I HOPE U HEARD THIS AND THINK CAUSE ALL I GOT TO SAY TO U IS UR A BUNCH OF FUKIN IDIOTS BARONS A HOOSER CUSE HE WENT TO UR TEAM AND I HOPE U GUYS SHOULD SEND UR TEAM TO ANOTHER CITY CAUSE U GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF FUKIN WHINERS GO CANUCKS GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! --- A canucks fan on stltoday.com

This was so funny I had to set it as my sig.

Just thought about 2009 and 2010 today... Because of the team that won the cup I don't know if I'll ever be able to not feel some disdain for the 2009 Flyers and the 2010 Predators for blowing it against their first round opponents when they could have really stepped on their necks.

Pretty sure the refs basically shortened both the Penguin and Flyer benches by two just as a preventive measure to discourage the throng of fights that plagued the last game. He was officially given 2 minutes for holding the stick and a 10 minute game misconduct, but as far as I could tell he was just getting crosschecked on that sequence.
