Surely I want the Rangers go as far as possible. In case they don't win the cup I'd like to see the Caps winning it. That's what I want.

San Jose vs. Pittsburgh is my Stanley Cup bet with the Sharks winning it, unfortunately

Pittsburgh or Washington from the East.

Anaheim or San Jose from the West.

is it just me or has the standard of refereeing been awful in the playoffs? Very inconsistent, especially in the NJD - NYR series.

They screwed the Islanders last season as well which I still don't forget, causing the Islanders crowd to throw stuff on the ice, surprised Bettman didn't come out and punish the team

ps, Bettman is a fool, he made two goofs on a WFAN interview a few days ago including calling Afinogenov a defenseman. As Joey B said on WFAN, I don't think Bettman can name every team in the NHL, and it doesn't help he expanded the hell out of it

Yeah! Great series win for the Rangers. Ok, I thought that the 4-1 lead last night would be enough, but in the end it was only a good way to increase the suspense.

Last night it was really worth to stay up so long. Our OT loss during the weak was shit, few hours of sleep and a defeat. Not good. And on Wednesday I was too pissed from my FCN that I switched off the notebook and went to bed after the first period. Even the Rangers lead didn't cheer me up. Quite a mixed week.

I saw game 7 of Habs-Bruins series today. There was definitely a fantastic atmosphere in the arena, I think it was the best I've ever seen of a NHL hockey game. Hats off for that football(soccer)-like atmosphere.

Strange, strange... when I have sympathies for a team it's always from the East.

In both conferences the 1,2,5 and 6 moved on. Good match ups though, the Detroit-Colorado rivalry. Pittsburgh-Rangers has a chance to be high scoring. Habs-Philly has the potential to be good.

Go Habs Go

the habs make me want to puke. nice goal by kovy on the equalizer with that high stick almost making contact with the scoreboard. anything to avoid a riot i suppose

from the east i see the pens easily making the final if they can get by the rangers which IMO should be the conference final. from the west, the wings are always a presence but it's a toss up between them and the stars who i see making short work of the sharks.

Tough loss to Dallas last night. I hope the Sharks aren't worn out from the Calgary series.
