I hate how fans want penalties.
The call on Tootoo was weak. The call on Getzlaf was weak. the slashing call to make the 5-on-3 was weak.
And guess what, all we have is powerplay goals...
Yep, I hope the NHL oscillates back towards real hockey someday.

Until the final game of the season, Z and Abs never figured in a single goal this season together since the line was put together.
But of course the line is still going to be fairly effective... Because Datsyuk + Zetterberg
Who would you put there though?(no hypotheticals, tonights lineup only) I think it's a good place to hide Abdelkader, and have him as a poor mans holmstrom. Can he play like he has the last couple for more than a couple playoff games though?

I think that's to be expected in a game 1. Playoff chess matches that turn desperate are great I think.
