Just finished listening to it.

Campbell comes off looking a lot better than the two radio guys, in my opinion. The guys have no idea what they are talking about. Campbell's tone may sound whiny/weasely, but he definitely knows his stuff.

Also, his comments on the Steckel/Crosby collision near the beginning are spot on.

I'm still listening...but I may have to wait until I'm on a different computer set-up to catch all of it; some sounded worth listening to, which is why I posted it, but interesting take, makes me want to finish listening

I'm thinking now we get Montreal in the next round; Pittsburgh is on the cusp of winning their series. And they will get Philly, who will come out of the Buffalo series worn and tired (even more so than they were by the end of the regular season).

Just listening to the rest of the Colin Campbell interview.

Interesting take, but still not sure why he was doing this radio interview. Started out ok on the Steckel/Crosby collision topic, but took some commitment to listen to the entire thing.

Montreal looks really good. They're toying with Boston. Maybe Boston isn't playing as well as they should be, but I'm starting to fear the prospect of playing Montreal next round.

Ha, Andrew Ference flips off the Bell Centre crowd after his goal.

The Caps' current sit back and wait mentality would not fare well against the Habs. I'd almost rather face Pittsburgh if they were able to make it out of this series.

link to the gesture by Ference, screen captured by someone and shared on twitter

Another game hard to turn off...for the goals and momentum changes, obviously.

Playing Pittsburgh means Philadelphia is still in it and likely with a healthy Pronger going forward. Better for Philadelphia to get bounced early IMO and face either Buffalo or Montreal next round (assuming the Caps don't collapse etc.).

The Caps may be passive at times but they're not as passive as Boston tends to be. Washington's team defense is better.

So much for price being Halak like. I think the bruins have solved him.

I was going to say the same. NBC Sports nee Versus needs to transition this guy to the national broadcast from CSN Chicago if they're going to be unifying the title belt for a decade.
