"If anything, a bigger game like that (the Rangers on Thursday), you focus even more, you have to be that much more ready. This isn't the time to go out there and feel your way around, these are important games. I've got to make sure I'm ready and I'm responsible out there." -- Sidney Crosby on his potential return
Yeah my point exactly. He didn't return today, and IMO he could have, but I think he felt scared of getting concussed again. Not that the Rangers aren't physical but they don't dish out controversial hits all that often. But they do fight A LOT
People often think of the Bruins and the Flyers as the dirtiest teams in the league, but I think that distinction should go to the Pens. From hits to the head to slewfoots, they are always getting little cheapshots in and hoping no one notices. And they get away with it every damn time because the NHL doesn't have the balls to discipline the Penguins. Look at how long it took them to suspend Matt Cooke.
Nashville is overrated in my books. They've only won one playoff series in their franchise history and people are pumping up their tires once again. They'll get bounced by Detroit in the first round, book it.
