That was an entertaining game. Two excellent goalies.

I'm starting to think that Chris Lee is just a bad referee.

Wow.  Turnover and a goal a minute into OT and they go to Game 7

The NHL is the only frigging league that cares more about garbage players than it’s stars.

It's a sad state when teams win by doing things that are clearly against the rules and the league encourages it. The fact that people are getting hurt as a result is really testing my resolve to watch games.

Who cares how many Marners a team has when really what they need is more Martins.

It'll blow up in the leagues face when the Islanders meet the Habs in the finals and they won't have enough players to finish a 7 game series.

Also the only league where enforcement of the rules changes so drastically once the playoffs start. It feels like a completely different set of rules once the playoffs get going. It's absurd.

Basketball also gets a little dicey in the playoffs.  Probably not to the extent of the NHL, but they do start letting more stuff go in the NBA playoffs.

Standards change in all leagues. It's more that it's drastic in the NHL than in others, whereas, in the other leagues, it's more around the edges. I don't follow the NBA, so I can't really speak to it, but I get the impression that it's mostly the borderline stuff that starts to go uncalled.
