TEAM CANADA! They're playing with so much heart...it would be amazing if they won. I'd look for Ryan Smith to play a big role over the next few games. He's closer to the cup than he's ever been...as someone who grew up idolizing Gretzky and the classic Edmonton lineup, he must be having an incredible time.

If you had said to anyone ten years ago that the four teams in the semi-finals in the NHL playoffs in 2006 would be Buffalo, Carolina, Edmonton, and Anaheim, you would have been laughed out of the room.



Go Oilers!

Edmonton!! Woohoo!! I'm so happy for them. Roloson used to play for the AHL Flames, I met the guy once and have his autograph (on a napkin). I'm so proud of him getting his first career NHL playoff shutout!

So who will the Oilers wind up going against? Anaheim? More old AHL Flames players on that team.. Giguere was here the year we won the Calder Cup. It's really interesting watching all the teams playing and then seeing all these players that we watched when they were in the AHL. Stillman with Carolina too...

I'm sure there are more, I haven't really gone over the Buffalo roster.

Go Oilers!!

Damn, the Edmonton fans were so loud...in a good way. Great atmosphere. I had a huge sense of deja vu as I was watching the final minutes; there were real vibes of the glory years, when Gretzky & company ruled the hockey world. I think I actually like this Edmonton team better, because they're winning with determination, hard work, and a lot of heart. They're kind of like the U2 of hockey right now.

Oh Pominville...so awesome...I hope Buffalo keeps up the momentum. We gotta do in hockey what we couldn't do in football! Few American cities get as excited about hockey as Buffalo does...just ask everyone who doesn't care in Raleigh .

The Edmonton series was great...even if the play was a bit sloppy in the last game. I'm wondering though why whenever Edmonton plays at home it looks so dim on tv? It's never been explained to me. Is it that dim in person as well or is it just how it shows up on tv?


I'm sure Don Cherry is rooting for the Oilers cause they're the only Canadian team left. He certainly can't think much of the Sabres since he spent a good amount of time making excuses for Ottawa during the last round.

I'm rooting for Edmonton to do well, but every time I hear about the team it reminds me of my girlfriend who lives in Edmonton for the summer (3 days' drive away from me), and is in Thailand now.

Go Oilers, but do it fast, so that I don't have to keep hearing about you.

They stole that one, well, Roloson did. The Oilers were losing all the battles along the boards in the 3rd period, I guess, they were finally losing their legs.

Great plays in their own end though to clear the zone and not get icing calls.

Hopefully, they can continue their dominant play on home ice.
