I'd be embarrassed if that was my captain. He's like an -actually- talented Turris. We keep seeing teams with bad captains (Capitals, Sharks, Pens, Canucks) implode. Kind of reminds me how lucky we've been to have Doan around, who is world class.

Dustin Brown is such a boss. I so hope LA sweeps the Nucks.

Its over for Vancouver and Pittsburgh as history will be against then and its a matter now of when the series will end. Hopefully both series will end in 4 games.

For LA though a win vs Vancouver isnt really an upset here seeing they have a team that can go all the way to the cup and a team like Vancouver is someone they would have rather faced in the WCF instead.

Also, their offense is still not that impressive to me yet seeing how depleted the Canucks are. Unless there offense can produce the same kind of numbers as Philly as done in their 1st round series, they are going to have a hard time with the likes of Phoenix, St Louis, Nashville later on.

If Phoenix can beat the Hawks, we will play LA if the Blues lose. (Lots of Ifs!). I would feel comfortable in that one.

Remember that last year the Blackhawks and Red Wings came back from 3-0 to force a game seven. The Canucks and Sharks ultimately prevailed, and in 2010, Philadelphia succeeded against Boston. It's very rare that a team wins, but it's a little more common for them to force a game seven. So the Pens and Canucks series' might go on for a bit with some luck.

No way, LA beating Vancouver is totally an upset. Vancouver was the one major juggernaut in the west, because St. Louis isn't a known commodity yet. LA is a great team, but I doubt anybody thought they had a popsicle's chance in hell. The fact that they went up 3-0 makes it an even bigger upset.

Are you certain? I thought division championships only counted in the first round. So, we'd be below Vancouver, St. Louis, Nashville, and Detroit. In that example, we'd play San Jose while Nashville or Detroit would play Los Angeles.

Good point but both Chicago and Detroit didn't have the same cluster**** of issues back then that both Pittsburgh and Vancouver have today.

Its surprising for sure being a 3-0 series for Vancouver but this isn't a David vs Goalith matchup either unless LA didnt get a coaching change and traded for Carter in the process.

I made a bet with a friend. 2-1 odds that the Kings would win, jumps to 10-1 if the Kings sweep. Had the Kings swept, I would have had to pay him 2-1.

In 08-09, the #1 Sharks lost to Anaheim. #2 Detroit played Anaheim and # 3 Vancouver had home ice against # 4 Chicago, even though Chicago had more points.

Ah, it seems you are correct. In the conference semi-finals and finals, the original seeding is retained. Points only re-enter the picture in the Stanley Cup Final. So if Vancouver and St. Louis bow out in the first round, Phoenix gets home ice until they reach the Stanley Cup final.

Okay, now I'm hoping that Los Angeles, San Jose, Ottawa, and Washington win their series. That way Phoenix and Florida would be guaranteed home ice advantage for as long as they remain in the playoffs . . . despite being the sixth best team in each conference on points alone!

Today's games are:

Ottawa vs Rangers
Bruins vs Caps
Blues vs Sharks
All are Game 3

James Neal has 2 hearings and Ashan has one.

Pittsburgh is going to need a serious rebuild on D and their bottom 6 offense at this rate.

It's so funny to watch Turris be involved with these scrums. Way out of his league.
