NHL Playoffs: Stanley's Suitors

Looks like Murray will get the nod tonight over Fluery.

Tough call, but I'm good with it.  They need to change something up, and he was solid in relief on Wednesday.

as a Ranger fan, I'm now rooting for Ottawa.... They mowed over my team as an underdog... stealing a couple of games in a --from a NTR fan perspective-- heartbreaking fashion... so to me they deserved the series, and good for them.... plus I love Karlsson, and hate Crosby...

Think he is a game time decision tmmrw but seeing as he has zero points the entire postseason I think we are absolutely fucked. Our center depth is horrendous, gonna need Rinne and the D to pull out some shutouts to have a chance.

That sucks.  I hate to see guys go down in the playoffs like that.

Aw jeez it was such an innocent looking hit too. Who's #1C now? Jarnkrok? Ouch...

Anyways, how bout the conundrum for the Pens in net? "Oh, our cup-winning goalie had a bad game? Why not throw in our OTHER cup-winning goalie?" And Murray played pretty damn well. I sorta forgot how good that kid was. Still doesn't excuse that absolute dumpster fire they call a defense corps (although dumpster fires at least give warmth).

Ben Carson? 

 

I hope Nashville can move one or two wingers to centre for their next game, though I don't know which ones...

Colin Wilson would be ideal. He's played Center before and is a big body.

Yeah Forsberg-Jarncrok-Arvy seems likely. Swedish power!

Still have a smidgen of faith but The Johansen injury has knocked all my expectations of making the final away so anything good that happens will just be a pleasant surprise.

Gutsy performance. Proud of the defense, Rinne, and especially the penalty kill.

Resilient Preds... Major credit to them for pulling out the win without their #1 center and captain (even though he has 0 points this offseason as MA pointed out).

Their defense corps has me believing that IAN COLE is an excellent defenseman.  What has happened.

Also, go Pens!

And the offense awakens... Also Sens playing like shit. Hopefully this breaks them.

Well Boucher just put on a clinic of how to destroy a goalie's confidence...dafuq was he doing pulling him and putting him back in? 

I find it hard to believe the sens come back from this. 

Edit: and it's Anderson's birthday. Poor guy, what a gift from Guy Boucher lol

Fake timeout, maybe?  I have no idea, that shit was weird.  And what a birthday. :(

Yeah that was as questionable as it gets with Boucher/Anderson. I think this is over Tuesday regardless if Karlsson plays or not.

Happy birthday, Craig! Yeah, I can't imagine either Anderson or Condon getting confident enough to stop the Penguins in game 6.

That's as about as good of a statement game as you can have by the Pens. Seems like they've figured out the 1-3-1 employed by the Sens over the last two games. Murray has looked great in net too.

Can't wait to see how easy Wingels gets off for that elbow to Wilson's face at the end of the game too.
