Hawks out, Canucks out, Penguins out, Preds and Blues both down 0-2. Were the Wings still playing, these playoffs would be perfect so far.

If the Wings were playing LA and Phoenix the way those two teams are playing the Wings would be getting their asses kicked. Our team was simply not meant to go far in the playoffs this year. I don't think it would be anywhere near perfect. ;)

But it certainly takes the sting off the Wings getting flouted if both Central division teams left eat s*** in the semis. :D

The way the Kings are playing definitely has me feeling better about our exit. Two reasons:

1) These Kings would've owned us.
2) I really like this Kings team and feel they deserve to win it. Moreover, should they win it, it'd prove there is indeed some justice in this league. The Kings are doing this thing the right way. They're playing hard every night, they're overcoming their weaknesses (e.g. problems scoring), and they're playing to their strengths without looking like a one-trick pony. They're hungry, and they play an aggressive game - but they're disciplined. They're playing solid hockey, keeping it simple. And they're an eighth seed! What's not to like (aside from them not being the Wings)?

It would be hot if they did. It would be even hotter if they somehow faced Philly and did it :P

I'm really liking what the Kings have managed to do so far these playoffs.

I also see what Don Cherry complains about with refs in the faceoff circle.. just drop the god damn puck instead of faking players out and then throwing them out. Guy has some sort of megalomaniac issues or something where he has to be the most important person in the faceoff circle.

Interesting now, Stewart's 2nd of the game. 3-2.

Aaaaand Doughty scores.

The Kings simply have the answer this Playoffs.they've solved the Nucks skill and offense easily and now they're doing the same with the Blues defense and physicality :)

Kings, Lakers and Clippers all looking to make a long playoff run.


Some serious scheduling conflict there, lol.

Wow. The Kings are shocking the hockey world. This year's 2006 Oilers?

Unreal.. I love hockey for this reason. Team barely makes it into the playoffs and is coasting through the playoffs like they are the favorite.

I will say this may be a different series with a healthy Halak, he is the reason why I liked St. Louis so much to go far in the playoffs this year. I was never quite sold on Elliot but I knew what kind of damage Halak could do in the playoffs.
