That Eberle goal reminds me of his World Junior heroics.

Boston knows game 1 means fuck all. Its their signature move
Same as Pittsburgh. Both classically take a couple games to get any traction in the playoffs.
Pittsburgh is playing a team severely lacking in talent. Boston is not.
Columbus is playing a team that is overloaded with talent. They are up 2-0.

This is the NHL Playoffs, it's more about HOW you play than it is about WHO you play.

And as for lacking talent. Barzal, Bailey, Eberle, Nelson, Lee, and Pulock, aren't exactly devoid of talent. Pittsburgh certainly has more firepower in Crosby, Malkin, Kessel, Letang, and Guentzel.....but it's in how they are playing.

Both Columbus and New York are playing lunch bucket brigade games. They are giving no quarter from top to bottom and nullifying a good chunk of the skill they are facing by giving no space and hitting fast and hard.

Boston can do that, they usually do.....but Boston also has more talent than Columbus and New York.

Tampa doesn't know what hit them.

Columbus is firing on all cylinders and playing playoff hockey, so far Tampa is not.

My brother pointed out to me this evening that last year Columbus went up 2-0 on the Caps and then lost in 6. True story. Last year though their wins came against the run of the play, they got bounces. This year they are controlling the play and setting the tempo.

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

And people attacked for mentioning his name as a cheap UFA 1 yr tryout.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."

Man winning the prez trophy is a curse, like being on the cover of EA Sports.

Some potential upsets a brewing. Can’t believe St. Louis is the same team we embarrassed in their own barn this season.

Shit is gonna hit the fan in Tampa if they are ousted by CBJ
DOYLE WOULD’VE RATHER HAD KEVIN HAYES AT 7 YEARS 7 MILLION PER INSTEAD OF J.T. MILLER FOR A LATE 1ST RD PICK

The reality is that Tampa got a horrible draw and are not facing a team that represents the record they have. They'd be a top team with that lineup all year. They upgraded a lot at the deadline and are gelling now.
