Must suck to be a Sharks fan right now. On the plus side, now we got more "THE REFS CONTROL EVERYTHING IT'S A CONSPIRACY!!!!" threads.

Hell of a finish to the LA game.... plays like that are one of the reasons I picked them to win it all last year and this year. They have some guys that can really come through at the right moment

Can't see Hawks beating that Kings team. Just too mentally and physically tough.

Unfortunately true. D:

If there's one team I want to see win the cup less than Pittsburgh it's the Kings. You won last year LA, stop being greedy. Sharing is caring.

I think a Kings/Hawks series will require our O to show up big time. to borrow a page out of the habs book: No Excuses.

How on earth are the Pens going to pull it off w/ brutal D and shaky goal.

It will be hard for them to get out of the conference - facing the Rags or Bruins - and, leaving us aside, I think the Pens vs. the Kings would be an f-ing joke.

Whether it's us...or an Eastern Conf team the SCF winner is going to have to avoid being turned into road kill by LA

still hasn't happened much as long as they "only" win the home games.

Not saying Pittsburgh is the front-runner to win, just saying I don't want to see them end up winning under any circumstance because I don't like them. Vokoun has been decent in goal though, and Pittsburgh's offense skates circles around most other teams. They've scored more than three goals in every single playoff game except for one so far. Granted, half their games have been high-scoring by both teams. With that said I think they lose to the Bruins in the conference final if they both make it that far. And Lundqvist could steal a couple games if they play the Rangers.

Hawks-Kings series (which is looking probable) would be brutal though. I'd pick Hawks in 7 but who knows, LA is looking damn good. I hope they lose Game 3.

The Pens have given up 4 goals in the 3 games since MAF was benched. MAF was the problem.

Very true- and even the Hawks usually convert on the 5 on 3 PPs... but if that were Hawks vs SJ that game would have gone to overtime, most likely

good possibility that the Pens, Bruins, Kings and Hawks make it to the Conf. Finals. That would be the last 4 Winners of the Stanley Cup. Coincidence? Staying a Top Team even in the Cap era? It's possible for sure

I don't think's that's sustainable...I don't think Vokoun is good enough.

People really underestimate Vokoun, since 2008 he has the 8th best SV% in the NHL. He is a good goalie who won't cost you games and can often times steal you a game. He might not be on the elite level with the likes of Rinne, Quick, Lundqvist, etc but he isn't far away.

Sharks are still the Sharks. Shocking. No chance they win 4 of 5 from the Kings. This is over in 5.
