Might have to keep the television volume down a little bit tonight. Don't want that deafening Mellon Arena crowd to disturb the neighbors!

So what's the deal with Nylander, is he coming in tonight, or will Bruce find a way to avoid dressing Mr Useless?

Looks like Fehr isn't skating and Nyles is skating with Gordo and Clark per Tarik. So I would assume he's going to be in tonight (not that it makes much difference).

Nylander will probably dress, but I'd like to see Ovechkin get some double-shifts on Clark's line.

I dont see Nylander doing much worse than Fehr. If Nylander stiffles the offense, very simple, just stick him on the 4th line. Spela försvar. Problem solved.

I think they should check Mo's twig to see if its corked before checking Ovi's curve.

Next thing you know they'll be complaining about the size of Varlamov's pads.

I was thinking the same - it's already starting to surpass the Rangers crying - I'm liking the villain role though.

I won't be satisfied until they're complaining about their tee times.

And yeah, I watched the Ovechkin goal where Cooke was "interfered" with many times. It was 100% incidental contact.

hey stretch took a call on my broken twig on the PK obsession. Nothing will come of it, but maybe next year Laich Mo and the boys will wise up. IIRC, Ovi broke his stick shooting for the empty net at the end of game 2.

It's not the perceived whininess that's bothering me - I think every fan base (including ours) is guilty of that. It's their general insecurity re: anything Crosby + black and gold goggles that bothers me.

Rangers fans weren't this bad.

Meh. They did the same thing in the Stanley Cup Finals last year. Hopefully the end result will be similar.

what can one expect with the leagues all time whiner and complainer as their owner, and his little training room downstairs. ML always especially hated the caps because we always were proactively hooking and holding him focusing on team defense as priority one. I think an overwhelming majority of his fights were against the caps. Whiners and complainers just move onto the next item once the squeaky wheel has gotten the grease.

Precisely. Whining and complaining is an organizational motto for them. Leadership begins at the top, and their owner is the biggest whiner in league history.

I'm appalled by how poorly written that is. Do they believe in editing?

Yeah, it looks like Cooke went inside to try and help out on the draw then when Backstrom won it pretty clean back to Green he tried to go outside through Semin. It was him going inside first that caused him to not be able to get to OV not Semin doing anything illegal.
