I'm not happy that Boston had such an easy time of it. I was hoping they would at least have to work up a sweat. But, my god, it is nice to see the Habs lose. That organization, fans, media ect., is so arrogant and full of entitlement, they make Cowboys' fans sound humble. I'm reading and listening to the post mortem over at the CBC website, and you'd swear that not beating the "beans" was a huge upset. Forget the fact that the Habs hardly played themselves into the playoffs.

My favorite new excuse. From CBC reporter: "Some players are telling me that after the announcement came about the possiblre sale of the team, when we were in Pittsburgh, this team was never the same.":rofl: Oh, please - grow a pair if that is true. In fairness, the player they interviewed (not sure who it was), didn't bite much on it, but still....

The Pens continued to get better on the ice the last year of negotiations between the Gov and the Pens when it looked like the team might move to KC. And I believe the Steelers had some ownership indecision this last year as well.

Wow, Jerry Jones and Dan Snyder should each buy half of the Habs. That would be so fitting. Can TO skate?

Watched the Ducks/Sharks game tonight. That was one of the better shatterring of glass I have seen in a while. Nice style points

Also saw a little of the NJ/ Carolina game. I thought the Canes would win this easily. Brouder is stepping up which I guess shouldn't be surprising.

thats why i didnt want to play New Jersey in the first round. As much as i would be worried about how hot Carolina was coming into the playoffs i was more worried about playing Brodeur in the playoffs.

The Ducks/Sharks series has been a great on to watch, i fell alseep in the middle of the second, you hear about the earthquake that happened during intermission? they said it was a 4.0! Bobby Ryan has amazed me, he gets 70-80 points, 40 goals if he plays a full season. He has a great career ahead of him, for those you dont know, Bobby Ryan was the guy picked second overall in the 2005 draft (the Sidney Crosby sweepstakes).

I think by far the best series to watch as a overall hockey fan has been the Chicago/Calgary series. Its been a great series, back and forth action every game, Chicago wins two, the Calgary wins two. physical play, great goals, everything you want from a playoff series.

The playoffs have been great so far, except the Wings/Jackets series. Every game i have watched have been an entertaining one to watch.

Washington is going to win Tuesday - the Rangers suck balls and are lucky Florida and Buffalo sucked slightly more. They'd be among the worst teams in the league without Lundqvist. So if Carolina ends up beating New Jersey, they will play Boston and the Pens get the Craps. If New Jersey closes it out tonight, then they likely get Boston. Neither team I'd be particularly thrilled with going up against having to start on the road.

I wouldn't mind if we played Washington either. Sure, OV is capable of carrying them for a game or two, which is always a worry when you play a team with a great player. But, of course, the Pens can counter that twice. Also, I like the Pen's chances in any series where their opponents don't have goalie that can step it up and play Fleury like in big moments. Obviously, the Devils and Rangers do possess that type of goalie. Boston probably does. Im not sure Washington does.

Simeon Varlamov has been pretty good for the Craps since taking over for Jose Theodore in game 2, but he's just 22 years old and is facing a team that couldn't score if their lives depended on it. He hasn't gone up against a team like the Pens, and I think they could break him if they end up playing them. Tim Thomas of the Bruins is probably going to win the Vezina Trophy this season, so he is certainly capable of shutting the Pens down. Brodeur until last night has been great, but Lundqvist has faltered a bit. He looked horrible yesterday and hasn't really had a good game since game 2. Don't sweat Cam Ward from Carolina either - he has been every bit as good as Fleury over the last 2 months, plus he has won a Stanley Cup. Out of all of them, I'd rather play NJ, but it looks like it's going to be Boston.

Brash got 6 games???? Friggin WOW! I was thinking maybe 2 games max. Do I think the hit was late? Yes. Did he target his head? Yes. But I've seen the exact same thing happen in other games, and not only did the person not get a penalty, there was no suspension. Malkin got nothing more than a fine and a warning from the league when he elbowed somebody in the head late in the season. Brash hits a guy with his shoulder, albeit late, and he gets 6. Friggin ridiculous.

Yes I know that. It still doesn't change my opinion - I've seen far worse barely get a mention. Milan Lucic of the Bruins actually cross-checked a guy in the chops and he only got a game. Michael Cammalleri of the Flames did the exact same thing Daniel Carcillo did to Talbot, only worse, and he didn't get suspended at all. During the Ducks' cup run 2 years ago, Chris Pronger twice deliberately elbowed guys in the head causing injury, and he got 1 game for each incident. How is what Brashear did worth more than any of those? There is no consistency to NHL suspensions and it is strictly reputation-based. That is my biggest problem. I hate to say it, but if Crosby does the same thing, I bet you he doesn't get a suspension.

It was a late hit. No question.




CAPS' BRASHEAR SUSPENDED FOR TOTAL OF SIX GAMES

Washington Capitals forward Donald Brashear was suspended for a total of six games by the National Hockey League for two separate incidents in Game 6 against the New York Rangers.

Brashear had a hearing on Monday to discuss his exchange with New York's Colton Orr in the warm-up prior to the game and his late hit on Rangers forward Blair Betts in the first period. Brashear got one game for the incident with Orr and five additional games for his hit on Betts.

The Rangers announced on Monday that Betts suffered a broken orbital bone as a result of the hit and is out indefinitely.

"Brashear delivered a shoulder hit to an unsuspecting player," said Senior Executive Vice President of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell in a release. "It is also my opinion that the hit was delivered late and targeted the head of his opponent, causing significant injury."

Brashear will start serving his suspension in Game 7 and it will extend through Washington's next five playoff games, or the 2009/10 regular season depending on how long the Capitals are in the playoffs.

I believe I said the hit was late. I also said it was deserving of a suspension. I just believe the suspension was too harsh when put up against similar incidents.

As a matter of fact, here's an example of a very similar hit:

6wRHHk86KhU

And now, here's Brashear's hit:

hGwrm3sGU8E

All Ott got was a charging major, and no suspension. The only difference is that Betts was injured, while Campbell (who ironically is Colin Campbell's son) was not, and that Brashear was not penalized for his hit - he got 2 for roughing when the Rangers' Mara came after him. Other than that, it's the same type of hit.

It's not JUST that play in this case though.

The first incident happened in the pre-game skate.

They took that into account too, but you're right.

If you're a goon and have the rep and act like a goon, the league will treat you like a goon when you go head-hunting.

Right, although I don't think he did enough to warrant a suspension there. Just a couple pushes. You'd think he started a bench-clearing brawl the way some people talk about it.

And yes, if you're a goon you do get scrutinized more. So what's Chris Pronger's excuse then? He's only been suspended 8 times in his career and barely got anything for his elbows. Again, that is part of my issue - there is no consistency when it comes to suspensions, and definitely a double standard.

If it was a clear intent to injure, why wasn't he penalized for the hit? There's no possible way the referees missed it - they were looking right at it. Look, I hate Brashear and think he's nothing but a no-talent thug and would never want him wearing the black and gold, but I'm not going to sit here and pretend that this is a fair suspension. It's not. And BTW, he got 5 for the hit + 1 for the pregame warm-up incident.

Seriously? You're using the refs as your argument? Refs have been horrible most of this year. Carcillo didn't get a penalty for decking Talbot and he still got a 1-game suspension

It should have been a 5 minute major penalty which could have changed the outcome of that game. Rangers got screwed

The reason I like the 6 game suspension is because they have handed out several 1-game suspensions recently and this was far worse than those incidents. A 1 or 2 game suspension would have been a total joke

I'll give you that, but it doesn't change the fact that the refs blew the call and makes the suspension look a little bit chintzy. It should have been 5 and a game since Betts was injured, no question. I can understand if the refs don't see it, but that was not the case here.

The hit, however, was not any worse than any hit I've seen during the playoffs. Chris Kunitz damn near killed Kimmo Timonen with a similar hit in game 3, but the difference was Timonen got up and kept playing, while Betts was injured. 2 games for the injury would have sufficed on top of the 1 for the pregame stuff.

Over the years, the Pens have owned the Craps in the playoffs - seemed like they played them every year from 1991-2001. The Pens have won 4 of the last 5 meetings between the teams, and the only time they lost was the one and only time the Caps made it to the SCF, in 1998, where they were swept by the Red Wings. This is THE dream matchup for the league - Sid and Geno vs. AO and Semin. Doesn't get much better than that.

I think the Capitals will be a good challenge for the Penguins. Varmalov has been good for the Capitals since he was called in favor of Theodore. If the Penguins can play as solid as they did at the end of game 6 and all of game 1 of the Philly series, I think this will be another Penguins victory in 6 or 7 games. The Capitals will be looking for payback for past playoff apperances against the Penguins and even if the Capitals do go down, it will be with a fight.

Here's to another good series by the Penguins.

Varlamov was never tested by the Rangers. Even in his 2 losses, he gave up a total of 3 goals without facing a whole lot of shots. He only had to face 15 shots tonight, just 1 in the 3rd period of a win-or-go-home game. The Rags were one of the lowest-scoring teams in the East this season, and if the NHL didn't have a shootout, they likely don't make the playoffs. Let's see how he does when he has the likes of Sid and Geno peppering him with shots, playing against a team who can put the puck in the net with regularity. My prediction is that he's broken by game 3, if the Pens come to play every night.

It's the Canes and the Pens in the ECF.

Game 1 in Pittsburgh.

Game 1 in Pittsburgh.

While home-ice advantage could be the difference in this series (although it hasn't hurt Carolina so far), I was looking forward to a Pittsburgh-Boston series. There had been some bad blood building in the regular season, particularly between Crosby and Savard. Plus I live in Providence so I would have gotten a lot of local coverage of the series. The main goal as a Pittsburgh fan is winning no matter the opponent, and I'm sure it won't take long to build up a dislike for Carolina. Looking forward to it.

Oh my god. That could have been a tragedy. One more inch closer and that skate is life threatning. Don't want to see that kind of stuff happen to anybody.

Gota go to work soon, but Hossa just got lit up.:applaudit:

Not wishing an injury, but it was a nice thing to see.

Edited 3-2 Wings. :m16::splat:

Poor Hawks - they came out flying, had the Wings on their heels then they gave up a soft goal, got sloppy and lazy and looked like poop for the last two periods. How embarassing.

Wings and Hawks all tied up at 1 at the end of the 1st.

They fell 3-2. Hopefully the Hawks can ruffle their feathers a little bit before the end of the series.

Osgood was a wall. Hawks blunders killed them.

Nuff sad.

Hawks up on the Wings 2-0 at the end of the 1st. Cheap shot by Cronwell on Marty Havlat - he ended up with a 5 minute major and a game misconduct. Havlat is out of the game due to injury suffered with that dirty hit.

Dayum. Hawks were up 3-0 midway through the second and the freakin' Wings plopped 3 goals in within minutes of each other to tie up the game at the close of the 2nd.

I'd like to see them make a better game out of it on Sunday.

Baby steps. First they gotta pick up the pieces after Havlat getting KO'd by Kronwall.

It was a clean hit, when Eddie O says so, it must be true. Keep your head up son.

With a concussion like that though, I don't think he'll be back this series - he had that dead man's stare when he was knocked out.

Wings scored first midway through the 3rd and the Hawks just tied it a few mintues ago. Looks like this one is going to OT.

Detroit's got a hell of a goalie.

When Osgood is on, he's almost impossible to beat, but with the Pens firepower, I think we'll get to him. We've got one helluva goalie, as well. :tt03:

The Hawks could easily have won that game, but their D hung Huet out to dry with that last goal. I felt really bad for him.
