Do you think Kopitar is self-conscious about being a zombie and that's why he wears a tinted visor?

The overtime winner was exactly what the Pens were doing and giving away a lot of quality scoring chances.


Both D-man on the same side of the ice. Too bad.

If you're a forward trapped back on defense and a skill guy dekes you out, so be it. But for someone whose made a career out of being a defensively responsible center, it really gives you a headache wondering what on earth Zubrus was thinking making a beeline for Williams there, giving Kopitar an acre of ice to score on one of the easiest, slowest breakaway's I've seen in a playoff game.

I think Anze puts it low on purpose, too. That's a great patient goal.

Kind of funny considering the "experts" had been going on about how you wanted to shoot high on Quick and there at the other end Kopitar takes it low.

When I saw Scuderi give away the puck, firing the puck right up the middle of the ice right onto a Devils' stick in the slot area for a glorious scoring opportunity, and Quick had to bail him out with a big save, the first thing it made me think of was it's a perfect example that the Pens aren't the only team to turn over the puck at the worst possible time.

Unfortunately the Penguins got cold at just the wrong moment. You could see it happening about six games before the end of the regular season. The team wasn't firing on all cilinders anymore and Fleury started to play sloppy. Vica versa the Kings got hot at the right moment and are now leading in the finals obviously. Quick is simply a more consistent goalie I believe, but Fleury had been great all year, except when it really started to count.

It started with that back to back against the Islanders, we wouldn't have been 4th if the team played the way it should have. Anyways this season is over, no point talking about the past, let's look forward to the draft and the off season moves Shero will make

The best part of this series is Flyers fans pretending to want LA to win, whereas when the Flyers were still playing you would see comments about them feeling sick to see Richards hoist the cup etc. Its awesome.

I know if our management thought Crosby or Malkin was soft/lazy/bad for the team and traded them only to see them go straight to the cup with another team would burn

Flames hire Hartley as their coach. Apparently the Habs job is down to Therrien or Crawford.

Yet another in a long stretch of awful moves by the Flames.

Hartley and Crawford both potentially with jobs again next year...that's terrifying.

Didn't Therrien coach the Habs in a previous life? I'd like to see him back in the league but not with those pieces of ****.

On ESPN, there's an article about Scuderi. In the article, they say how he's the reason he's considered "The Piece" to the Kings success.

Those son of a *****es...

The diving accusations on the main board are getting ridiculous.
