It used to be when a Leaf game started at 7:30, pick drop was at 7:38... No idea when that changed, but we need to get back to that.

The penalty call on Neal, to me, is the perfect example of why penalty calls should be context-free. I'm sure the complaints are about it being the sort of thing that maybe shouldn't give a team a two man advantage but it absolutely was a crosscheck and it was really dumb. I don't know why you'd give a team a break on something like that because it's more likely to hurt them.

I really don't like how Nashville's big "tradition" of throwing Catfish on the ice is such a clear and obvious rip-off of our own team's proud waffle-throwing history.

Pretty incredible that somebody like Carl Hagelin would be a healthy scratch for Pittsburgh. And Conor Sheary, who was 4th on the team in scoring, sat at one point too last round.

But Matt Martin has to play every single game.

0 SOG for the Pens that frame.  This is compelling sport.

Second team to have a 0 shot period in these playoffs. It happens every few years, but, twice in one? With the team not getting a shot likely winning both games? Crazy.

I dunno.  I'm beginning to think that Nik might be on to something about these playoffs sucking.

Well at least the score of this game is interesting now.

That was a great play by this Watson fellow.  Or, alternatively, an incredibly weak one by the 2 PIT guys he beat.

Rinne obviously forgot something during his nap.

I mean EVERYBODY knew that Pittsburgh's next shot was going in.

What I like about watching Rogers hockey broadcasts is that I'm secure in the knowledge that nobody is going to mention that Don Cherry said that Pittsburgh would generate a ton of shots and they'd only lose if Rinne was awesome.
