Rooting for the Sharks now. No significant 1st round draft pick benefit for us now anyway.

Despite living in Pitt, gotta root for SJS. Always respected Marleau and still have a soft spot for big Joe when he was on the Bs. And his beard this playoff is epic. He looks like a wizard

I dunno I think allowing Pitt to try and get a second goal with no icing threat is stupid

Unless less than 30 seconds or so or something

I believe you, I don't have tevo here. Very likely didn't matter, either way.

I don't like keeping the goalie in at all there. I think pulling him makes for the best odds, even with the icing off.

Yeah. The linesman didn't wave it off -- officials just lost track of the clock.

Not the result I wanted, but a great game to watch.
Again, this is clearly wrong. He shoots the pick with 10.1 on the clock and 1 second left on the pp.

Why is the NHL the only major US sport to not have its finals on an OTA station? Having a game on ESPN is one thing but why put it on a Chanel that requires a cable box? Seems like an unwise business decision

Game 1 was on regular nbc. And free online. Not sure about tonight's game as I'm at work.

The point about cheating at face offs is one of the favorite things I've ever heard. Played with a guy that mentioned that exact point, which is so simple yet seemingly underutilized. We get "spoiled" with the Marchand post-icing face offs but it's one of my favorite minor aspects.

Edit: Abd they're dead on about Sid being underappreciated. Guy is just the total package and it's not even close. Love the Toews talk in there.

Big mistake to not just get it deep with 8 seconds left on the pp. But still should have been saved.

I believe last year I put together a Paul Martin trade for the B's. I'm kinda glad I was wrong.

One thing is for certain, this crowd sucks. Sitting on their hands all night like it was a pre-season game. Terrible atmosphere for a Cup Final.
