Tomorrow night the Capitals and Penguins meet on Rivals night; a fitting start to the chase for Lord Stanley's Cup.

If I was Henrik Lundqvist, I'd be pondering my free agency options for the 2014 offseason despite it being only November. The Rangers offense is pathetic and has been since 2006. They are wasting the efforts of one of the best goalies in the world. Sad.

True. They lost in their own house to an exhausted team on the night Nash returned. Tuukka was pretty damn good too.

Kris Letang is a veteran of 81 Stanley Cup playoff games.

With that kind of experience, the Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman should have a better handle on his emotions.

Letang was tested by the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal and didn’t like it, as he sticked Jackets forward Boone Jenner in the gut to take a slashing penalty and later was assessed an interference minor deep in the defensive zone that wasn’t necessary.

“I think Kris is a guy who is targeted,” Penguins coach Dan Bylsma said on Thursday. “There are certain players you are looking to put a dent on, go after with a forecheck and be physical on, and Kris is one of those guys on our team.

“I didn’t like the response from Kris on the penalty he took on Jenner. That’s something he has to be better at and it’s something we need to be better at as a group.”


Bylsma didn't hesitate to replace Letang every time he caused a turnover.

The Blues-Hawks game last night was epic. 3 OTs until Steen scored on a pretty pass at the goal mouth.

Anybody watching?

Sorry JC Boy.
Crosby broke his drought of scoreless games and Fleury is playing like a Hall Of Famer so I think the Rangers are toast!

forty years ago, the game was quite different.
this was the year i became a fan.
tim ryan and ted lindsay did the call for NBC...


just a sprinkling of helmets.
dave schultz gooning it up.
wide open, end-to-end.
goalies didn't cover the puck whenever they could...

Things are starting to come into focus.
I'm thinking Chicago-LA
Montreal-Pittsburgh for the finals.

Before that third game the commentators were talking about how fast the ice was in Minnesota and that that would be an advantage for the 'hawks' very fast forwards. Even during the two intermissions the commentators were all focusing on Chicago's playing. Well, the game was extremely fast, but it was to the home team's advantage. I can't believe the 'hawks got blanked in that game especially after the way the first two game went.

@InfraBlue,
Yes and I was amazed at how quiet the crowd was in the first two periods.
Very resilient team, the Wild

Sometimes the playoffs produce some unlikely heroes.
Last night Boston was saved by a player who had just been called up from the minors.
Matt Fraser scored in overtime to tie the series.
bonne chance

@panzade,
Speaking to commenator Pierre McGuire, he said, “I had just finished
eating lunch, and I didn’t really tell anyone, but I had some frozen
yogurt, so I’ve been working that off today.”

I think Claude Julien's gonna order frozen yogurt for the rest of the team.

Bruins Thornton sprayed Subban with a water bottle. Not classy, but had no bearing on Montreal's loss.
Series is getting testy

@panzade,
FWIW, I've been following Bruins since around 1967. Habs-Bruins rivalry was testy back then and ever since. If it's true about that rumor about Thornton spraying water, it's plain just juvenile but no big whoop! Now, if it had been done vice-versa, it'd be a hangable offense!

@Ragman,
Subban poured water on the fire so to speak.He said it was part of the game.
I'm confused.
What part of the game?

You gotta love Anaheim's 20 year-old rookie goalie Gibson.
A shut-out against the mighty Kings in only his second NHL game.
