Crap. I think the Avs are done in the playoffs. Oh well, they are such a young team and were supposed to finish at the bottom of the Western Conference this year according to the "experts". The fact they made it to the playoffs says a lot about their potential. If Kroenke (owner) doesn't get cheap and retains most of the talent, the Avs will be a force in the very near future.

The Hawks certainly choked last night, lets hope we can pull through tomorrow. San Jose is playing like the Hawks too. All season they play strong, and in the playoffs they struggle.

I want them to lose, but I'm becoming a fan. I missed the first period, but this was great hockey tonight.



Woot! Great to see Howard bounce back strong. They played a great game last night. The whole team looked sharp. I was a bit worried that the early disallowed goal would give the Coyotes some momentum.

I definitely have respect for the Coyotes, especially for Bryzagolov. I've been picking him in my hockey pools the past three seasons and its nice to see he finally has some support in front of him to win more. But in the end, I want to Wings to win.

The Flyers are playing real well right now. The Devils are literally hanging Brodeur out to dry. He's doing all he can but he's not getting much help in front of him. Kovalchuk's finally scored but he's been pretty much a non-factor. He doesn't fit in at all.

The Pens are running away with it against the Sens. Ottawa's goaltending situation isn't good enough against the offense of the Pens. The game seemed like it would be a tight one until Pittsburgh starting running away with it. Sens are done in this one unfortunately.

I am a die hard Sens fan and it must suck to be them.....how do you suit up against Sydney Crosby night after night? Isn't the definition of insanity doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results?
poor Sens...they had a good team this year, maybe a change in goalie can give them a little bit of an extension....

Just put a good defender on him, and he'll disappear. He doesn't like being hit.

You mean the Hawks are playing like the Sharks. The Sharks have had at least 5 years of doing great during the season then fizzling out in the playoffs.

Either way, it's not looking good for us.

I am praying dearly that the Captain Shane Doan will get back after the injury in game 3. The Coyotes need that magic spark which I think was missing in game 4.

They almost dominated the second OT. The puck didn't even go much beyond the red line in the last few minutes. I had low expectation of them going into the playoff but now I'm hoping for a division title. Of course, further more wouldn't hurt.

They were definitely a sleeper team going into the playoffs. They were basically written off due to injuries, especially the loss of Savard. Good to see them playing hard out there.

Canucks/Kings had a good game too. The nucks didn't look that sharp in the beginning but picked up their game in the 2nd period. I'm just glad that game didn't go into OT! It's rough watching west coast games on the east coast!

No win #100 for Brodeur. I would have liked to have seen that but the better team won the series.

Third year in a row that the Devils failed to get out of the first round. It's not like they limped into the playoffs either. Like you said itsborken, the better team won the series.

A 3OT winner for the Sens to live another die. It's good to see that they're playing better and putting up a better fight this game. I still think the Pens will win the series but hopefully it'll be tight till the end.
