Man. Islanders lead this whole game and then give up a tying goal to the Blues with 30 seconds left.

This is after they missed an empty net goal with 1 minute left by about 6 inches. Ugh.

eta: At least the Isle stopped them from picking up a second point.

etaa: Or not. Toronto overturns the call on the ice and deems the OT winner a Vanek kick-in somehow. Ugh.

etaaa: And the Blues take it in the shootout. Gross.

Just goes to show you how bad an idea it is to lose to Detroit's AHL team, and get shut out into the 59th minute by Minnesota's third string goaltender.

St.Louis....

1 point back...two games in hand....already 3 more regulation victories.

We're going to have our work cut out for us needing to beat what will likely need to be, 2 or 3 of any of St. Louis, Colorado, Anaheim, San Jose, & Los Angeles. Minnesota, even.

Are the playoffs supposed to be easy?

They're never easy. Don't recall saying they were, since you seem to be implying that's how I feel they should be.

However, they're typically not loaded with 6+ teams that would likely be favored over any team from the East. You look at the West, and any of the teams currently in the playoff pictures, save one or two, has a good shot at winning the Cup. If any team in the east other than Pittsburgh or Boston makes it to the Final this year, it'll be a colossal miracle.

Running headlong into a personal pet peeve of mine thanks to the Stadium Series games quite often.

Dear everbody,

Historic Yankee Stadium was demolished in 2010. The current building largely modeled after that one and having the same moniker was built in 2009. The two are not the same, and the one that's currently standing is not historic. Stop saying that anything's happening in "historic Yankee Stadium," because it's physically impossible as it doesn't exist anymore.

Thank you,

Why didn't Boudreau get a pumpkin jacket?

Also disappointed neither he nor Sutter are wearing fedoras.

Both these jerseys feel like generic fake hockey jerseys from a movie or like Mutant Hockey League.

So... Gretzky and Roenick... Most loved and hated Kings for their fanbase? I think it's close.

Such utter bull **** on the over turn in OT on Long Island last night. Blues gifted the extra point.

Yeah, makes me wish even more that the Hawks had followed the Devils lead, said no to the chrome jerseys, and then just brought back these bad boys:

Brodeur has given up a 6 pack in just 2 periods. Most not his fault though...both teams are playing like it's an all-star game. 6-3 Rangers after 2.
