Pittsburgh looks bad.

I don't care if they somehow manage to win this.  They look like the Pittsburgh Weenies.

Pfft.  I'm going to sound like Homer Homerdog here, but the Leafs are better than either of these.

Yeah, I've been saying this since they were eliminated. Some how, some way, all playoff teams this year just sucked.

Congrats NHL...you finally found a way to top MLB's ridiculous review rulings. 

Why they don't go with the NFL's "breaking the plane" way of determining offside is beyond me.  One skate is clearly on the right side of the blueline and a toe in the air negates it?  Pathetic.

Crosby should have gotten an interference call on the 5-on-3 just before they scored the first goal of the game.

Toss in Rinne crapping the bed, and Nashville got screwed by the refs and their own goalie.

If I'm a Capitals player, I'm kicking myself for completely ruining the best opportunity to hoist.

And if I'm a Leaf or Oiler, there's no reason to think you can't hoist the Cup next June.

I don't agree on the Crosby play. To me that was two guys both going for the puck and both bodying up. Penalizing Crosby there is effectively giving him the penalty for being the stronger player and not falling down.

Looks like she 'loves' the catfish-thrower...

Taking a page from the Detroit Red Wings’ time-honored octopi-throwing tradition, Predators fans have made it a tradition to throw catfish on the ice in Nashville. It apparently worked Monday night. The Penguins failed to record a single shot in the entire second period, and Nashville rallied to tie the game before the magic wore off. The Penguins won Game 1 by the final score of 5-3.

How was it done?

He said he brought the catfish with him from Nashville. Wholey’s Fish Market in Pittsburgh’s Strip District had announced before the start of the Stanley Cup Final that it would not sell catfish to Predators fans.

Waddell said he vacuum sealed the fish and placed inside his compression shorts. Once inside the arena, he entered a restroom, wrapped the fish in a free T-shirt and towel handed out at the gate and went to his seat.

Second 1st period in a row now where an admittedly illegal cross check gets called even though it 100% wouldn't have been called in earlier rounds.

And minutes later they turn a blind eye to a potential 5-minute major boarding penalty.

Second 1st period in a row now where a team gets a 5-on-3 because of two penalties called at the same time. Don't see that very often.

Rinne's probably not winning the Conn Smythe.

Incredible that Pittsburgh is going to win these two games.

The only way I think these playoffs can redeem themselves would be for an offside review to cost somebody the final win in overtime or something and that then causes the NHL to blow up the review process.
