So Hagelin gets 3 games, and Carkner gets 1. Discuss.

Full disclosure: when time ran down in the second period, I thought it was the third because the game had gone on for so long and the score was that high.

Penguins. Flurry is too big a sieve and Flyers have too much firepower. Kings - Canucks have still been close games and Kings aren't putting the biscuit in at a frightening rate.

The difference is that Hagelin's play resulted in one of Ottawa's best players potentially having to sit out a few games. (I'm not sure if anything there's any determination of how much time Alfredsson is going to miss.) So it's basically tit for tat. I would imagine there's also a liability issue, since hits to the head might result in a lawsuit, as we're already seeing the NFL.

Otherwise, it's all part of the league conspiracy to get Ottawa into the SC finals.

Curious to hear everyone's thoughts on the suspensions yesterday. I think Hagelin getting 3 is hilarious in that it fvcks the Rangers, but I thought it was a little excessive. 1 game probably would've sufficed. Carkner getting 1 game is also hilarious in how it's enraged the Rangers fanbase, but he probably should've gotten 2. Thoughts?

From what I've heard, its a possibility that Alfredsson could play tonight, at least that's what I heard yesterday. He was "feeling better" according to TSN. The thing with Hagelin's hit is I don't think it was with intent to injure. He got a little carried away, he doesn't have a history of being a dirty player. I was surprised he got 3.

Boyle is 6'7

Carkner is 6'4

Boyle could have defended himself but he just keeps on proving that he is turtling coward.

but how many times does it have to be told to these guys, no head shots allowed, it's been talked about so much this year. Keep your elbows down, that's all he had to do.

3 games is fine to me because of the stupidity of these guys who don't listen.

Article in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette today suggests the Flyers have tired themselves out by constantly raising their arms in celebration of a goal this series. The writer thinks this may work out in the Penguins' favor.

(Okay, for the record, he said this jokingly. Still...ouch.)

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."

True. Boyle also got his ass kicked by Neil later on. Come to think of it, how can a guy that big be that big of a pansy? :P

It also appeared to be an intentional elbow directed at the head. I could see grounds for leniency if he was just trying to finish a check and got his elbow up or it was some sort of spontaneous reaction to Alfredsson making an evasive move (which was kind of the case with Volchenkov's elbow last year).

UPDATE: Apparently Alfredsson stated that he thought the hit was not intentional.

Perfect suspension for hagelin..... Alfredsson didnt have the puck and Hagelin led with his elbow and forearm HIGH to throw the hit.... The hit took Alfredsson out of the game. Hagelin even apologized for the hit which means he knew he was wrong.

I cant believe so many fans defending the Flyers in the Pens Flyers series. Yes the Penguins are playing dirty but it takes 2 to dance. The flyers love this type of hockey and live for it. They crash the net and do things to get under the other teams skin. Laviolette coached the hurricanes to do the same thing. Hartnell is a dirty whiner just like Crosby can be.

If we make it out of the first round and happen to play the flyers I will despise that series. they are going to go after players like Parise all game long. Hopefully we'll know to fight back to.... I guess thats why we have Boulton and Janssen waiting....

Not lucky, the Rangers have been playing playoff hockey all season. Ottawa's like a poor man's version of the Caps, same type of system but not with the same type of talent.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03
