A lot of guys have been going nuts to start. Morgan Rielly has 10 points already, Voracek with 5 points and Kuznetsov with 4 last night as well. Maybe the goalie equipment changes are already having an effect.

Seriously, they can only keep changing the guy's on the bench so much when it should be the guy's who make the decisions. And I don't mean the GM, though he could go right now.

This was supposed to be the start of the rebuild for the Rangers. They brought in a new coach and a lot young players. The season start out rough, but they've pulled to a tie in the Metro. It's been a fun ride so far.

I want Lundqvist to win the Cup before he retires, so the Rangers resurgence pleases me.

Wings have been red hot lately as well. Two tough games though the next two days so could be a good indicator of where they actually are.

I think the Wings are doing well cause they changed that Arby's promotion.

If there's a riot in the stands in the third you know why.

The President's Trophy winner shitting themselves in the playoffs. This is so unusual and unexpected.

GJGE Tampa. Outscored 19-5 for the series after going up 3-0 in the first period of game 1. Probably an upset on par with Pats/Giants, but this was over a four game sweep.

Pats/Giants was at least kind of flukey with the Tyree miracle. This was a straight drubbing.

And all those other teams at least made it out of the 1st Round with most advancing to at least the League Championship round.

Good thing the Lightning lost. It's making people forget that Calgary is losing 3-1 in their series with the Avs.

The top 4 seeds in the West and top 3 in the East could be out by Wednesday. The Islanders could have home-ice the rest of the playoffs.

The regular season is pointless.

Fucking Leafs.

They controlled the play for a good chunk of the game, but the 2 saves that Anderson didn't make on the first and third goals and Babcock not switching up the lines at all when they needed offence are what killed them.

Patrick Marleau getting a regular shift, especially power play time, when he was the worst forward on the ice all series is ridiculous.

Kinda fitting that Tavares leaves and the Islanders end up going farther than the team he goes to the very next season. This may be the most wide-open the playoffs have been in a while.

Matthews and Marner were on the ice for about 6 seconds 5-on-5 during a line change and almost scored and didn't get any chances after that.

Nylander was saddled with Brown and Marleau all series and didn't get any chances to to move up to the top 2 lines for some reason when you've got 10 minutes left to save your season.

A totally winnable series and they shit the bed.

What a fucking crazy 3rd period and OT in San Jose. Vegas now knows the heartbreak of the NHL playoffs.

Yep, he was a wall from Game 4, 53 minutes in Game 5 and tonight.

McAvoy call I thought was bullshit, but the Bruins were much more aggressive this series and their penalty killing units were great, many times the Jackets did not get any good looks.

Rask has been doing his best Tim Thomas playoff impersonation at the right time for the Bruins in this matchup against Carolina. I'm also always happy when Carolina gets knocked out by the Bruins (RIP Hartford).

I've been so conflicted this series as far as who to root for. Living in Raleigh it's been fun to see people get excited about hockey, but I also didn't want to see the Canes possibly win a SECOND cup before the Sabres got one (not much risk in that anymore) but also, as a Buffalo sports fan, fuck Boston.

Gonna be rooting hard for whoever comes out of the West.
