Ill take my chances vs the yotes. The only team I truly fear now is LA. They are so much better than they played in the regular season.
Yeah, LA and Blues going to be the killer. No one will go down easy, they will overwork each other and then they don't have enough experience and depth as we do. We should be ready for them!!!

I don't think their number of overtime games is any large factor. Players can recover in a day or two. In fact, I worry more about our Preds having a significant layoff.

yeah, best case is all series end in 5, so everyone is affected by extra off days.

Lots of Hawks fans in Phoenix tonight- so glad that didn't happen at Bridgestone in the Detroit series

Hawks win that series isn't over yet. Don't be betting on playing Phoenix yet as we could still play the hawks if LA wins.

What a game from the Hawks. I wanted them, but that team is defiant.

Weekend game plus Phoenix has a large upper midwest transplant population.

James Neal is quickly becoming one of my least favorite players. Another cheap shot to the head.

It's funny how many of us were complaining that Poile couldn't have pulled such a sweet deal that Pittsburgh made for Neal. Looking like we're the lucky ones now.

Its almost shocking how truly awful the Penguins look- I don't know if I have ever seen worse defense or goaltending in the playoffs.

They are extremely lucky its only 4-1 after two- the Flyers could easily have 7 or 8 goals.

Really, if you get right down to it, both teams have been awful- I really believe if either of these teams played the way they have in this series against any of the other 14 playoff teams, they would have been beaten in 4 or 5 games...

All we have to do now is pray LA wins tonight. That is the key to everything else. If we can just secure either PHX or CHI I am feeling alright. I would rather play PHX, but I think we can beat CHI as well.

I hope I am wrong, but I'm afraid for LA it's all going to come down to game 6- win that one or lose the series.........

I have the same damn feeling. Sinking feeling we are going to face Canucks next round and have St. Louis play the Yotes.

Canucks/Kings is a GREAT game- 3rd period was some awesome hockey on both sides......

Win or lose tonight, I feel a little better about the Kings winning the series after watching this game- the Kings really took it to them in the 3rd period.

Come on Kings!!

Not over yet, just really got to hope someone on LA can come up big this overtime period. Would feel better knowing for sure we aren't facing St. Louis or Vancouver.
