    I couldn't give a rat's arse where they decide to televise NHL playoff hockey, as long as I get those channels! The hockey is usually so good this time of year I stay up way past my bedtime most nights!

    Well, the Flyers look downright terrible.

    ...Or there is a reason Columbus tanked the last game on purpose to face the Capitals versus the Penguins.

    Just saw Winnipeg go up 3-2 late on Minnesota and Bruce Boudreau should patent his clueless playoff face. The look when Winnipeg scored was priceless and one he is very used to.

    I don't like the Pens, but after the Eagles of all teams won the Super Bowl and reawakened the obnoxiousness that is a Philly sports fan, I really want the Flyers to suffer a complete and utter first round humiliation. So far so good.

    Yeah. Vegas came out HEAVY and it took LA a bit to get into the game. But it settled into a steady breakneck pace after that. I'm going to guess that the ridiculously long opening "ceremony" played a part in LA's sluggish start. That was like a fever dream ... in a Winter Olympics opening ceremony sort of way.

    To be fair, that's what he looks like all the time.

    I fell asleep before the 1st period ended in Vegas. Figured I'd awake to a 6-5 final score. I guess I saw the most exciting part.

    Yeah ... tonight we get Game One action all over the place

    Devils at Lightning ... NHL
    Leafs at Bruins ... NBCSN
    Jackets at Caps ... USA
    Avs at Preds ... NBCSN
    Sharks at Ducks ... USA

    NBC is really rolling out the family of networks for the first round and as usual I'm left wishing I could stay up for more of the Western Conference games because their first round matchups are so much more compelling.

    No way. As much as I hate the Bruins, I hate the entitled Leafs fans even more. I want a Bruins sweep.

    Kadri is going to get a chance to join them. If Doughty got 1 game for his hit, Kadri’s is worth several more.

    Lightning, Bruins and Predators look predictably strong. Sharks got a big game one win on the road. Jackets reminded the Caps that os was the post season. All good stuff

    Absolutely agree on Kadri. That was inexcusable and very dangerous. That should be at least a 3 playoff game suspension (or more). It would be a crime if he gets 2 or less games for that.

    Jackets have 4 playoff wins in team history. Three of them have come in OT.

    I'm thinking 3 is fair and that they'll probably give him 2 because of the usual playoffs excuse.

    Good for the NHL for sticking it to Kadri. Just knowing Leafs fans are crying, makes me smile.
