Torts could reunite him with Richards and Kreider, only they'd be getting 6 min on the 4th line

Because both teams just came out of a hard 7-game series. This is great for us. I assume that this will be a long, physical series against the Bruins. One, fewer games early means more time for our injured guys to return. Two, if we win this series, we won't be as tired and physically beaten going into the next one.

Realistically, we'll need to win this one in 5 games if we want to win the Cup. But I don't think that would happen.

This is a series where I wish McIlrath was ready. We could use more snarl on the back end.

Hagelin - Stepan - Cally
Nash - Brassard - Zuccarello
Clowe - Boyle - Dorsett
Kreider/Pyatt - Richards - Asham/Pyatt

McD - Girardi
Staal - Stralman
MDZ - Moore

Lundqvist

is what I wanna see. That team would be a handful...
But will likely never see the ice as a unit together

Lol at a $12 M 4th line center
Buyout much???

Another 7 Game-series coming up. 50/50 here. We play similar styles. One thing that bodes well for us is that Nash and Brad are unlikely to achieve any less. They're giving their all and sometime they'll get hot again. Nash is picking up speed already IMHO. Also, Cally and Stepan have more to offer as well. They're okay but they can do even better. That's FOUR top offensive players that have more to give, I'll take that. I refuse to give up on richie until he's had a proper camp etc.

Finally, if we could get Clowe and Staal back.. That'd be great. Can't believe we've made it to round 2 without them + our slumping offensive stars.

Battle of the PP's

Chara is quietly regressing as well, what is he now? 36-37? Father Time is creeping up. Rask is decent, but seems to be more flash over substance, at least to me. LGR!

Are you kidding? That's GREAT news after back to backs and injuries to Staal, Powe, Clowe, and, likely, Nash. A couple of days off will help this team.

Just saw Toronto - Boston

My God, Toronto was pathetic the last 2-3 minutes. They could have fired shot at open net but choose to delay time by dumping puck. No way Boston would have scored 2 goals on Henrik in last 2 minutes. Toronto can blame themself. Lucic (3-4) and Chara (4-4)were standing alone in front of Reimer, how could the defense alowe that ?

The Boston D is banged up. Seidenberg got injured in the first few minutes of the game last night. He sat on the bench for the rest of the 1st period and 2nd period. He is their 2nd best D behind Chara.

The Maple Leafs could not win the first-round series. But Toronto claimed its pound of flesh.

The Bruins head into the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Rangers with three defensemen all left shots hobbled with various undisclosed ailments.

Andrew Ference did not play in Games 6 and 7 because of a lower-body injury. Before Game 7, Ference was seen on crutches with a walking boot on his left leg. Wade Redden was a late scratch in Game 7 because of an undisclosed injury. Dennis Seidenberg lasted only 37 seconds of Game 7 because of an injury to his left leg.

All you need to know about their D is Wade Redden was a regular top 6 D before getting hurt.

This means Cally, Boyle, Pyatt, Dorsett, Asham, and if Clowe plays they all have to finish their checks

That should always be the game plan in a playoff series.

Touche, that was a helluva game (your comeback last night actually reminded me exactly of what happened earlier in the season). Much respect to your team pulling it out and as you've said, it will indeed be a great series. Been a long time coming!

I don't think this is going 7, but I think every game is going to be a 1 goal or OT game.

oh boy.

The Rangers play well in that building. Henrik has never played better. My friends and I used to call Richter on his game "Pure". He was not getting beat that night. Henrik has that look in his eyes. He was talking a million miles a minute last night. You can tell he is really wired and fired up.

The Rangers D need to move the puck quickly. The Bruins forwards are big and like to hit. If they move the puck quickly though, they can alleviate that pressure and there is room to work in the Boston zone. The Leafs exposed them in the last series down low with their sped the same way the Rangers slowly exposed the Caps d down low as the season progressed.

My friends and I used to call Richter, "Stone", as in a stonewall and nothing getting by. HL has the same mental makeup of Richter, both VERY determined. Remember Richter's interview after the Devils series in 1994? He looked like he was on coke.
