I haven't watched that many Kings games this year, so I may be noticing something for the first time that others may already know- their play by play guy is fvcking annoying. He talks ridiculously fast at all times, and tries to get details in but ends up just giving a general summary. He reminds me of the kid in elementary school that talked all day (you know...). Also, Gio had a goal down low just poking it by Quick.

that douchebag bobble head annoucners and those total fraud sideline/intermission wanna-be news anchors are why I wanted to throw my remote through the TV when the CBC was not put on TV tonight!!!! :rant:

I could be mistaken, but I thought I read Steve Lepore saying on Twitter earlier that the usual Kings PBP guy isn't there and their color guy is handling PBP tonight.

Draw your own conclusions....

Eh? I wouldn't have asked if I wanted to draw my own conclusions.

What a meltdown from the Hawks. Leading 2-0 going into period two and the Wings notch four goals in the second. 4-2 Wings.

Steve Stamkos turned 20 a month ago today. Last night he picked up his 39th and 40th goal of the season in just his 64th game. Crazy.

The kid is nuts. So much for that whole "sophomore slump", eh?

Matt Cooke just rocked Savard with a hit to the head. Down on the ice, stretcher being brought out.

If that doesn't warrant a 5 game suspension I'm personally protesting the NHL offices.

looked like he had his elbow down, but still managed to hit him with it. the angle he came at Savard from, was nasty. only one thing you could be trying to do there.

With Pittsburgh win today over Boston they are now 5-points ahead of the Devils in the division. Devils have 3-games in hand with Pittsburgh though. Devils need this win tonight in Edmonton.

That was a big meltdown by Chicago today as detroit is fighting to make the playoffs and now sit 8th in the WC.

That was a nasty hit by Cooke on Savard. Tough loss today for Thomas and Boston on all accounts.

Big win for the Stars in the 5-RD SO (2-1) over the Capitals 4-3. Capitals now have 97 points and pretty much wrapped up the #1 seed in the EC.

The Caps are officially in the playoffs with the win over the Canes tonight because Atlanta has already lost the season series against them.

This Capitals/Blackhawks game has been crazy. Alexander Ovechkin takes a 5-minute major and a game misconduct penalty for a nasty boarding hit on Brian Campbell. Blackhawks now up 2-0 in the 1st over the Capitals. Niemi playing outstanding so far in goal for the Blackhawks.

Capitals score 3 third period goals to tie then win in OT. Nick Backstrom gets the tying and winning goals and basically had a national coming-out "Alex Who?" party in the last 25 minutes.

Avery was hiding behind the linesman when Carcillo I believe it was wanted to fight him. fvcking pansy. He had his hands over his head and the lineman hugging him, and didn't start talking sh!t until he was safely on the bench. No fvcking honor.

was at the hawks/caps game today. really fun game to watch. you just gotta know nbc sh!t their pants when ovie got the boot. i say the bigwigs went into the caps locker room in the second intermission and said "look...you screwed us with ovechkin's boneheaded play, now you OWE us. score or DIE."

i was legitimately worried the hawks fan in front of me would have a heart attack after backstrom's ridiculous play to end the game. either that or i was just nervous he ate one too many hot dogs. whatevs.

Well there go the Pens taking care of business against a team that they should beat. Too bad the Devils can't be bothered with something like that.

I'm still steamed about the points left on the table last night. As if the game last week against Edmonton wasn't enough. There is no excuse for it. I just have this nasty feeling that they're gonna draw the worst possible match up for themselves. That would be the Flyers, and it will also be another great opportunity to bow out early against a bitter rival.

Go Devils.

You do know Pittsburgh lost to CAROLINA this week......and couldn't beat NJ the other night...

Every team leaves points on the table.

I know they can't win every game and normally I wouldn't be as upset but they completely wasted any type of room for error that they built for themselves. When you only win 6 out of twenty games there has got to be a point where you start to make up ground again. Losing to basket case teams is not going to help that.

I'm just extremely pissed at how things have transpired for them. This is a great year to win the division and they basically sh!t it away. I know there is still quite a few games to play but I just don't have any faith in them at this point. One solid game against Pittsburgh is not going to change that.

I still say they're gonna pay for coughing up the division in the long run. I'd love to be wrong though.

edit: As for Carolina, just think of where they were the first half this season and they still have managed to pass the Islanders. I think before last night the Islanders had won something like 3 out of 16. Sounds like another team I know.

Carolina is on a hell of a hot streak. There's a huge difference between the likes of Carolina and NJ than the Oilers, Islanders, and Flames

How many years do they kill themselves over the division? It finally seems like they are killing themselves just to play well. I like that better. Let the pieces fall where they may. We're still getting an infusion from Paul Martin this or next week - it'll be the first time we've had a 100% healthy roster.

Let's see what happens. I still have issues with defense and centers, but I remain optimistic they can get past round 1.

Well getting the #2 seed this year would mean you're playing the likes of the Rangers, Montreal, Boston or possibly (although very unlikely) Atlanta and Tampa. I'd take any of these teams over the Flyers any day of the week. Even if they were to beat Philly it will be a tough physical series which will likely take a lot out of them. Either way I just don't like the match up one bit against Philly. Out of all the above teams they have the best chance of an upset if you can even call it that.

Ottawa is a possibility as well and I guess that would be the best alternative should Pitt take the division. They have seemed to cool off quite a bit. Buffalo is the least likely as they probably will hold on to win the Northeast and the Devils likely wouldn't fall past 5th unless they remained brutal down the stretch.
