    I think taking a series lead would go a long way towards having a better chance at winning this series. You know, apart from needing to get 4 wins Sarcasm . Mentally I mean.

    I seriously underestimated the impact mac could have on this team. He's hit the grown running. He might have benefited from not playing the whole season I guess but he's clearly brought his game to a playoff level. Bodes very well for next year also.

    I was surprised more people weren't more excited about him coming in. Monumental addition

    He looked great in game 1 too. I'm one of the people guilty of not realizing how much of an impact he could have.

    Zach Werenski is gone for the rest of the year. He took a puck to the face, got stiched up, put on a cage and returned to the game. But now they find out he's got facial fractures and will not play.

    Incidentally, when he got hit in the face and was lying on the ice bleeding, before he managed to pick himself up and skate over to the bench, the zebras let the play continue and the Penguins scored. Meanwhile the stopped the game with the Sens in control of the puck when Chara lost a blade.

    Just insane. Caps must be crapping bricks. Four Canadian teams up 2-1.

    The leafs winning is insane. I can usually get behind the underdog but not this time. I want washington and Pittsburgh to beat on each other.

    Insane is right. Not sure which series is more of a surprise. Csps-Leafs is the easy answer, I guess. President's Trophy versus a team not expected to be in the playoffs. But at least all games went to OT. Chicago down 3-0 after being shut out twice at home? Calgary and Minnesota the two hottest teams in the second half. Ducks without one of their top pair guys. Pittsburgh losing their top d-man and starting goalie.

    We could have 4 sweeps in the first round.

    Ryan and Karlsson tied for 7th (with a bunch of others) in playoff scoring. Hoff/Brass/Bobby tied for 3rd in goals (with a whole army of other players).

    Yeah, probably a little too early to make much of it.

    Anderson second last in SV% in the playoffs. Eek! Bobrovsky just above, Elliott just below -- two of the 0-3 goalies.

    Meh, he'll get it together. Made a couple big saves for us in the 3rd last night. The only one I hold against him last night was the short side PP goal.

    Anderson was terrible in the first two periods. You can't let in 3 goals on 10 shots. He redeemed himself but he still doesn't have the mental capacity and killer instinct IMO

    Paying attention strictly to save % is so dumb. You have to look at the quality of the shots. And yeah, he let in one soft one.
