Yellow fight!

I tried to explain the difference in shades to my wife.  I told her that Nashville could be coached by Colonel Mustard and it would be fitting.

Anyway, thank God that OTT nonsense is over.  Now I can root for the Predlings w/o having to REALLY root for them.

Kudos to the Sens. They had no business being here but didn't quit for a second. Not sorry to see them go but credit where it's due.

It'll be Smashville vs Crosby & the Gang.

Congrats to Pittsburgh.

Congrats also go to the Ottawa Senators on their magnificent playoff run.  Yes, it's heartbreaking to lose when one is oh so close to taking the next giant leap, but not all is fair in sports.  For Sens fans, this one will sting for a while.

Those marvelous Penguins, though their lineup decimated by injuries, somehow made it all the way through.  Everyone could see who the better team was and why, in this Eastern Conference Final, because when it came right down to it, they got the most important job done. 

As I mentioned in a previous post, never underestimate the power of Sidney Crosby.  I should have added...when it really counts.  That backhand pass & Kunitz' one-timer got it done.  Right on, can't miss.

The best I can say about this is that his heart is sort of in the right place ("work hard, kids").

I don't get what Cherry's issue is here. So Kessel didn't look as focused as Don thought he should look before a game?  C'mon.

Phil has the 5th highest goals per playoff game rate in the league since his career started, and the guys ranked 1-3 all have 20 less GP than him. But yeah, clearly he's doing something wrong.

It doesn't matter what you do in the game so long as you wear a suit and look focused before the game.

I hope for game 1 Kessel sits on the bench eating hot dogs for warm up.

And then scored a hat trick.
