And that amazing one-two combo of saves Varlamov had on Crosby and Gonchar....

Fleury has been solid as well, it really is the showcase series for both scoring and goaltending so far, Gary Bettman must be praying for 7 games...

I don't follow hockey much, but I enjoy going to Stars games and always hope for them to do well. That being said, playoff hockey is just a blast to watch. I watched the entire Caps/Penguins game last night and was just in awe.

My new found obsession with NHL 09 certainly hasn't hurt. Amazing game.

Absolutely horrible call at the end of the Detroit game that may have cost them the game, and perhaps the series. Atrocious. I mean, why is video replay there in the first place?

Not applicable because once they blow the whistle it's dead. With the use of replay I'd like to see the refs instructed to hold off a bit before blowing a play dead.

Wow, just when you thought Sid the Kid couldn't be a bigger whiner, they kept throwing hats on the ice.

Detroit is actually looking pretty... average against the Ducks, two upsets in a row?

I can't stand Anaheim, but goddamn they step it up in the playoffs. Scott Neidermeyer really is an amazing defenseman. I've been watching him, and man, that guy controls the rink when he's out there. I always thought Lidstrom was better, but not anymore.

When people say "Southern Ontario", what does that mean? Isn't Toronto Southern Ontario? Where do they want to put the Coyotes?

Yeah, that is all over the news here. Toronto could potentially support another team but I wouldn't be surprised if they go with Hamilton, if they go. The NHL brass - Bettman in particular - hates Jim Basille and they tend to shoot him down every time he tries to pull something like this.

Also, I despise the Ducks as well - Chris Pronger bothers me the most. I think it's because he has a small head, he looks like a little kid with an oversized helmet on...

He also has really small feet for a guy his size, they're smaller than mine easily, like 8 or 9 (shoe size, not skate).

When Chris first came up he looked eerily like Doogie Howser. He doesn't anymore (IMO) but he did back then.

Wouldn't Bettman want to avoid a team moving to Canada from the US south as that would show his experiment down there isn't going as well as he thinks?

Another team in southern Ontario is a no-brainer. This is probably the centre of the ice hockey universe. It makes sense to me.
