Is it enough to go "all in" to score and have a Khabibulin?

Skimp, I want you on my favorite list. Excellent question... In a word I say yes because he is a tested veteran with a ton of experience.

Either Cam Ward or Tim Thomas can get it done as well....

Linesman let Boston get away with too many men on the ice with 6min remaining in 1OT.

Chicago in seven. Hawks are going to run and gun, and my initial impression is that that's not going to fly against the Wings... But I'm too spiteful to actually pick Detroit.

Boston and Carolina want me to fail my exam tomorrow...

What an OT between Boston & Carolina. The only game I've ever seen where 15 bad bounces HAVEN'T gone in.

Yep, they decided not to call anything and they haven't. Original 6 franchises get breaks like that.

Scott Walker, he of the suckerpunch, wins it for the Canes.

He'll need security leaving Boston.

Boston has some classy fans, I admit that.

Clapping right away after an OT loss.

Props, Boston, big props.

Detroit...take notes.

I agree but Carolina just beat the Broons...

I feel so bad for Tim Thomas, he's to old for many more. But that Cam Ward is a winner..

So much for hockey in the South eh! Karmonas just keeps on going..

It goes from Crosby vs. Ovechkin to Staal vs. Staal in the East.

And if Detroit beats Chicago, they're guaranteed a SCF rematch. Either the Canes or Pens.

Indeed. Surprised they didn't throw trash on the ice or the opposing coach.

There was a water bottle or two behind Walker just after the game ended.

I don't want the Pens or the Wangs to win it.

I want the Southern-hockey-haters to be shut up and I like Chicago.

So here is to a Carolina-Chicago Stanley Cup Final.

Columbus fans threw trash after a trash call that ended up a goal. They weren't throwing trash after the game ended.

Maybe because all of the trash had already been thrown, I guess...

Wow, I guess it happens everywhere

By the way: Props to our old Mr. Clutch, Ray Whitney, assisting on the GWG.

Ditto. Hate the Wings. Hate the Pens. Things aren't going so well for me in these playoffs.

If that happens, I really won't know who to vote for--unless someone goes up 3-0 in the series, then I'll likely be voting for the underdog.

Probably leaning towards Carolina, though, even with Havlat in Chicago.

Detroit vs. Pittsburgh: Detroit (I wonder if I'll be in the minority!)
Detroit vs. Carolina: Carolina
Chicago vs. Pittsburgh: Chicago
Chicago vs. Carolina: Undecided

I noted that as well, he is one of several good players we let go.

As many fans here I want a Carolina/Chicago Stanley Cup final.. Osgood sucks!

I just can't do it. I freely admit 75% (maybe 74.9%) of my dislike of Crosby is irrational. But there's no one on the Wings I feel that way about. On the other hand, there's no one on either team I particularly feel like cheering for, either--except possibly Osgood, as he's so disrespected.
