it could have been anyone in pens jerseys to beat the caps in that series, they beat themselves.  Ugh.

Worst power play evar. Preds were so flat and then the wild last minute goal to tie after they acted like the puck was out of play. Maybe the Preds can keep the momentum going in OT.

Gritty ass win for the Preds. Could've went either way the entire game. Rinne was particularly good... Carry that into game 6 you bastards!

Nice work Nashville! I should hate them given the rivalry with Hawks but they are a very likable group. Unless Ottawa makes a miraculous run here, I hope they hoist the cup.

Damn it!

It was a great game 7 and Ottawa showcased resiliency yet again, but the general pattern of Pittsburgh taking the leads made the ending predictable. Sucky ending for Gibson especially, who made some big time stops in P3 and OT1. 

This should be a fun Stanley Cup Final and I don't think I can make a prediction beyond assuming this series goes 6 or 7 games. Will Rinne show up like he has all postseason? How well do the Pens handle Nashville's aggressive D?

Blah. My initial reaction last night was "Thanks for fucking that up, Nashville."

But then I got the blackhawks-douche out of me and can now admit that Pittsburgh is just on another level of resiliency compared to the rest of the league. I hate Crosby and like Malkin and have to admit that they're just the best overall combination of skill. Pairing them with Kessel, a shitload of speed, veteran niche players, an underrated young goalie, and (annoyingly) an excellent head coach... and you get the repeat. It's crazy they got through the wave of injuries this year with the same end result.

Anywho, I'm ready for offseason. Hawks are supposedly going to be very active. It would seem that Kruger, TVR, and Seabrook are gone. We gotta get faster via a retool, not a full rebuild. Skill is still there and the young guys looked decent throughout the season I thought.

You watched that game and thought Nashville fucked up?  I guess I got something different from it.  Anyway, I look forward to Nashville continuing to get better.

Not specifically game 6. There was no excuse to get pounded in game 5 in Pitt the way they did. Especially coming off a ton of momentum from the wins in Nashville prior.

The ref with the speedy whistle fucked that game up last night. I think there would be a game seven if that hadn't happened.

I watched the game, or most of the last period of it, which was the only hockey I watched all year. My totally uneducated opinion is that a team that can't figure out how to score with a 5 on 3 advantage probably does not deserve to win the Stanley Cup.

I think not having Ryan Johansen finally caught up with the Preds.  Awesome they made it that far, though.....
