    They're all cocksuckers. Every last ************* one of them.
    I've seen maybe 2 refs in the last 10 years that didn't feel the need to get in the way of an outcome at some point.

    Well, the Hawks have owned the Kings for the first two UC games. LA can't deal with Chicago's speed, and their players are dropping like flies. It was nice to see Quick get the hook. He's not invincible.

    If Boston can steal this next game at Pittsburgh, that series is all but over. The Penguin's goaltending situation is a disaster.

    Your prediction is very real.

    If Walkom gets it, he needs to forward it to Nick Kronwall for deflecting that shot past Howard.

    Fark. This sucks!

    Now seems like a good time to revisit that Seabrook goal. Shall we...

    Nice come back PB. Probert is a legend and I love Hossa. If it wasn't for the salary cap he'd still be a Wing.

    I'll be cheering for the Blackhawks from here on in.

    Glad to hear it. We're in a pretty good spot now.

    I hate LA.

    Sorry Sandy--that was a tough one for Wings fans.
    Hopefully the physical bruising the Bruins are laying on the Hawks is making you happy.
    Interesting series so far, sometimes the Hawks find their skill guys, sometimes they're just getting pounded. Couldn't believe the look that Kane had on his face in OT in game 2--totally looked like he'd given up, and sure enough they lost. But what the hell, the Hawks are resilient if nothing else--they can score. Kind of like the old Soviet teams in that you can't count them out (though the ice is a helluva lot 'smaller' now then it was then so you don't get the 3 minutes straight of Soviet-style possession). What I like about this iteration of the Blackhawks is character. Not beat up the taxi driver character ;) but the ability to get the puck to the net in bunches regardless of how far down they are.

    Bruins D are taking names in blood though. Damn how bout Boychuck? That guy is nasty. Broke into the WHL with plenty of PIMs when he was 16? hahahha gotta love that ****.

    Great series so far. Hopefully it goes 7.

    LA made it close in the end though--closer than I thought they would. The Hawks endured that pounding, let's see if they can keep up with the Bruins. Strangely, the Bruins have rolled out a lot more scoring weapons than the Kings in the playoffs this year. I've gotta say that the Bruins are pretty consistent game to game. This Series is going to hinge on which Hawks team shows up. They've gotta gut it out every game from now on--statement of obvious, but after game 3, I'm not sure who we're going to get.

    Nah... I don't mind the Blackhawks. I have a soft spot for the Blues sometimes too. But fortunately the Wings are moving to the Eastern Conference... so there's less of a conflict there. Cheering for the Sabres... (and the Islanders)... is going to be a bit more dodgy though.
