Also, I still can't believe it. Last night was incredible. I'm going to enjoy the ride for as long as I can.

Well played, Boston. Was a great series.

(Except for Milan Lucic. What an absolute disgrace to the sport.)

My perception is based upon a couple of things: being a poster at HFBoards (the NHL interference), knowing a bunch (my hockey pool I referred to earlier), and having been to countless MTL @ FLA games when Habs fans invade.

The last one is pretty telling. I'm by no means some sort of patriot, but there's a specific level of arrogance a large group of people must have to come into a neighboring country and routinely boo their national anthem at roaring volumes.

And I know this is a generalization. Not every single Hab fan does that. But speaking collectively, Toronto is the only thing that comes close and honestly it's never that bad.

I mean, that was sort of inevitable with all the backlash, wasn't it? The blame should lie more with Shero than Bylsma though, they just weren't that great of a team outside of their top guys. Very little depth. They need more nuance in the front office than they had.

I don't know, coming from the perspective that I would be just happy to make the playoffs, this seems pretty excessive if you ask me. But I get the idea that at some point you need to go in a different direction - almost winning it all or coming close year after year is still not enough at the end of the day.

I bet Dale Tallon pounces on Bylsma. He said last week that he was going to wait for a good coach to be fired.

Improbably, a 4th, two 5ths and a 6th seed make up the conference finals. And the Hawks have home ice the rest of the way despite stumbling into the playoffs as a 5th seed.

Based on the way the Kings have been playing, we're going to need it.

I can't believe the Kings. Unbelievable.

I think I will try and go to a game after all.

My bracket is hilarious. All of these comeback series are tragically against me.

I've made some good calls, but not really.

I'm out 10 bucks with Boston going down, even though I'm one of the only ones in my pool who had Chicago going this far.

Honestly, I'm most disappointed in Pittsburgh. New York fucking sucks and had no right beating them.

I have game 1 Chicago/LA tix in hand.

Put down quite a bit of cash on LA in game 7 last night to hedge cost of awesome tix. Pumped!!
