I can't see why any of these guys even give a shit. Athletes in general make so much guaranteed money (besides NFL) that I can't blame them for not giving a shit. If I'm down 3-0 in a do or die game to a better team, fuck it...I'm planning my trips in my head already.

When you get that far in the OT it is so even neither team really beats the other...it just takes one miscue or good bounce for the win. The game winner was a minor missed assignment and everyone is so tired that's how it goes.
I saw a replay of the Pavelski "goal" and I kind of have to say the call is not necessarily unfair. He was charging hard and the push was marginal at best...if It was on the other side of the coin I would say my goalie was interfered with. I can't really hold that as an excuse.

The fault I can find was the PP opportunities for the Sharks in OT...too much dump in..the Sharks do it best by setting up the points and getting guys like Burns firing at the net and then winning the battle in front of the net...the PP in OT never felt really dangerous.
I'm surprised you took that so well, I would've thought you'd be pretty angry about that goal bing waved off and then eventually losing. While I agree that the push seemed pretty small, it was still a cross-check, while the guy has forward momentum. and but despite that, I may have agreed with you if Pavelski was not also tripped by a Nashville defensemen's leg, which really sent him tumbling into Rinne. And I felt the same way about the PP in OT...I never really felt all that worried about them scoring; they just didn't have the mechanics in OT to get it done it didn't seem

disappointing performance in game 5 to say the least. I didn't even watch the game because of mother's day festivities, etc. (who decided to put the game on in the middle of the afternoon on mothers day, anyhow!? again, fuck you, Bettman), but from the highlights and what I heard it was a disaster. Oh well. I suppose I am happy that we made it out of the first round finally, and that I got to witness it in person. and that we went further than the Rangers...that is a big win for islanders fans lol

Yeah, that call could have went either way...in the regular season it would have been a goal but as a game winner and eliminator in OT I suppose they had to split hairs. As long as the Sharks win the series it will be water under the bridge.

I watched that game and the Isles just looked flat and not too desperate for the first half of the game. They looked like a team sitting back and waiting to see who would score. Too bad. Greiss really did look good, but Tampa is just more composed.

How good was Kari? 35 shots on goal, stopped all but 2 and 1 wasn't even his fault. If he plays like that in game 7, Stars advance.

Looks like the Blues have a little goaltending issue now too. Elliot pulled after allowing 3 goals in the first 6 or 7 shots.

Caps are offically making tee-times today, as I expected. I feel really bad for Ovi. I think the only way he's going to win a stanley cup is if he signs with another team late in his career. It's just not going to happen for the caps, ever.

Curse of the Presidents trophy. Now a team who has won a cup will be going to the finals from the East. Too bad, I'm hoping a new team gets it...Preferably the Sharks. Penguins are one of my least favorite teams.

Too much hype on this guy...he's not a big game winner. I'll say the same for our team's #87. I know they're both good...but both have shown their inability to raise their game up when needed.

Yeah, I went to Montreal last week, and was half-expecting to MAYBE try to get a seat to a game. Then I remembered there was NOBODY north of the border playing. . . I couldn't even find anything on TV.

Right? The playoffs are being dominated now by warm weather teams..places where "natural" ice rinks don't even exist.

I'm convinced that DC is right up there with Cleveland as one of the worst cities for sports. The constant tease of kicking ass in the regular season only to shit the bed afterwards is tiresome.

This was the Caps best chance and they fucking blew it.

Agree. No cups for the Caps during the Ovi-era. It is official: the nucleus of this team cannot win the big one, and there have been multiple attempts.

The Blackhawks and even the Patriots are great examples of what a good nucleus can do; the surrounding cast almost doesn't matter.

I know it sounds crazy, but it might be time for the Caps to start rethinking the nucleus of the organization.

You know what? They can keep trying tweaking, but it just takes a team to be hitting all cylinders at the right time and get the right matchups as well. I've been watching the Sharks change coaches, goalies and players and other than last year, be a "contender" in the playoffs for what....15 years or so. They have been in the playoffs every year the second most behind the Wings.
Some years it seemed like they had a powerhouse of a team only to get knocked off in the first or second round.

Look at the Preds...pretty much middle of the road team all season and now they are rolling. Even though Tampa had a good season I don't see them being as strong as the team that one the cup several years back...and they are in CF now with a shot.

Agree, the Caps peaked at the wrong time and started slumping at the worst time imaginable. I still don't think it'll happen in Washington any time soon. Been watching the Caps since the mid-80s, what I saw last night is what I've been seeing for 30+ years. They were actually more fun to watch in the 1980s-early 1990s; they didn't have any superstars, and when they won it was a happy accident. The expectations are so much higher now, maybe that's part of the problem.
