Congradultions to the Pens....they won two in a row at home.

Varlamov got an education tonight, as Hiller did last night. No goalie wins many in the playoffs after giving up four goals or more...

Exciting game, Pens and Caps...as I type Jussi Jokinen scores again for the Canes. What a waiver pick up he has been for the Canes.

When he was on the market AP posted the Jackets had no interest in him. I'm not sure but I think he can be very outspoken, many GM's don't like that. I guess Carolina's GM prefers Stanley Cups...lol

Anyway, quiz time. What's better, a dozen blond Carolina cheerleaders, a Southern Town making Hockey Town USA worried, Jussi Jokinen SOB and all, Cam Ward or a hockey crowd in the basketball nation of Raleigh, North Carolina louder than a hockey crowd in Detroit, Michigan?

All of the above, and seeing the Bruins lose.

The Broons are stunned... As where the Devils..

Now that we are deeper into the playoffs I'm thinking Detroit and Carolina might make the SC finals. The Pittsburgh club looked good tonight but if they play the Canes the Canes win it.

Where are the Columbus hockey fans?

Anyway, the Penguins have done everything but put OV and the Caps away tonight. The Pens without Gonchar are on a mission.

Credit to OV through, he's doing all he can but the ice has been tilted the Pens way most of the night. I did not think the Pens had the force to keep it close in this game. They are pressing the Caps every shift-kudos to them.

All that said, Varlamov is collapsing...his rookie hot streak is over..as often happens to rookies.

Plus, what do the Capitals and Jackets have in common in the playoffs? A defense that hasn't gotten it done...except against its own team.

Kinda hard for a vet to have his rookie hot streak come to an end.

Exciting stuff, this series.

The Caps management seems to be very patient about building their blueline (their whole roster, for that matter) from within the organization. The Caps' team play has been head and shoulders above their play from last season - another couple of seasons and watch out. Additionally, Varlamov is a far better option in goal than Theodore - this bodes well for the Caps in future series.

Alzner and John Carlson will both be top pairing defenseman down the line. Carlson was just drafted last year but he's a stud.

"The Star Spangled Banner" in Chicago and "O Canada" in Vancouver are just awesome. Good series for anthems.

We will see about Varlamov Pluck.. Something Jacket and Cap fans must learn, goaltender success is based on years not games. Remember that.. Oops, think about that hun....

The new arena is being built a block from where I go to school. It's still just a steel frame, and it's in a crappy part of town... but man, is Mellon Arena a dump.

The area will improve as soon as the new Arena is finished...

As for tonights games..the Pens got it done and will win the series.

As for my Chicago team, Kane and Towes have vanished. The Canucks look very contolled and on track for the finals.

I'm thinking Detroit and Vancouver play for the West, Carolina and Pittsburgh for the East...

Detroit and Carolina for the cup...

Eh, ordinarily I might agree with you, Robert ... but not this time. Age/experience hasn't done any favors for Theodore.

Is the officiating in the Hawks/Nucks game as atrocious as the Hawks' radio announcers are making it out to be?

IMHO no. Big homers. We should be familiar with that

True, I should have used the bell shaped curve..he was better in his day.

Goalies are often like thoroughbreds, year one they are trying to impress their mom, year three they win the derby, year five they are put out for stud.. So to speak.

Thanks. Just hard to tell without being able to see the game and having never heard these guys before.

3-2 Hawks.

Robert if one of the 3 year old horses win one of the triple crown races, they retire at 3 and are sindicated for millions. Except for this year's Derby winner, he is a gelding and will be racing until he breaks down. Then he will live out his life at the Kentucky Horse Park

I was close, give me the Cup and I'd sindicate the goalie to. I did know the winner this year was gelding..
