Ha!

The Rangers are almost unwatchable. Kershaw's user title says it best, "Stone Age Hockey."

Wings getting it done. Up 3-1 in the series.

Kings could have home ice in the WCF.

Looks like the Wings have figured out the Hawks. That and Babcock is winning the coaching duel.

Toews has been a complete no show and is losing his cool, I'd say that's a much bigger problem. Hell, Quenneville's fascination with Handzus is just as baffling

We’re no math majors, but Toews has four goals in his last 33 playoff games.
During that span, defenseman Brent Seabrook has three goals. For context’s sake.
Reader ‘Hollis 22’ is wondering why Toews doesn’t take flack for this drought:

“If Alex Ovechkin was in that kind of drought, the hockey media would be in his face with torches and pitchforks. In contrast, Joe Thornton has 5 goals in his last 27 playoff tilts, yet he and Patrick Marleau are viewed as guys that crumble in the playoffs.
“Why this stat hasn't made its way to the forefront of the Chicago-Detroit series is mind-boggling to me.”
Cos he's Captain Intangibles and he's one of the good Canadian boys! Sutter would call out anyone on our team if they had those numbers.

To add to that, Voynov has 4 goals this playoff year.

Man, the Eastern Conf. is a joke. Those goals on Rask? seriously?

The Kings have had to bust their ass for every inch of ice and work hard for their goals...screens of 8 people, hacking away at rebounds...meanwhile, in the East, goalies are falling, getting beaten on wrist shots from near the blueline, missing wraparounds that an 8-year-old could cover...

Also, can you imagine if Toews were Alexei Toewsov?

It's our own fault we've had to play the Sharks and the Blues, but I really feel like we've had to work 100x harder than most of the rest of the league for our wins. Some of these other games look like exhibitions.

It is really embarrassing. I remember watching highlights last night and they showed Jimmy Howard making great saves. Then they switch to Rask falling on his ass as the puck goes past him 1 mph. If a West team doesn't come out this year with the Cup, I'm gonna be annoyed. Stuff like that isn't even worthy of being called professional hockey.

I am canceling NHL Network and writing a letter to their chief creative director. I can c and p the letter here, but basically I'm disgusted and offended as a fan of a western team to turn on NHL On the Fly and see 30 minutes of Sens/Pens coverage when they played yesterday and 10 minutes of Kings/Sharks when they played a pivotal game five the day of. It's totally absurd and the NHL Network's clear and utter bias toward covering traditional hockey markets over west coast teams has gone on for too long.

The league claims they want to grow the game in non traditional cities, yet their primary television vehicle blatantly ignores those same markets.

Its fine if you want to yammer on about Crosby for a half an hour - he's the face of the league; I get that. But it has reached new levels of absurdity. I've just had enough.

Let's face it though, this is all about the Hawks failing the mental challenge. They are certainly the stronger offensive team. Stronger defensively (although that's not saying much). Hawks are imploding more than Detroit is stomping all over them.

Rask has the dubious honor of being "that goalie" that blew the 3-0 series lead a few years back to the Flyers. You never know, particularly after that performance.

PP has been joke all year only gotten worse as season went along

Hawks go several PP's a game without a shot on goal and it takes them nearly 2 minutes to get in zone

Kompon is worst coach I have ever seen at NHL level

And yes Toews has been no show (As have other stars)

Outcoached and outplayed the Hawks have been
