One word to describe this LA SJ series: pandemonium

 

There probably won't be hockey this good for the rest of the playoffs. Such a shame how the West matchups ended up.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Ok, I'll say it. Outside a nice 2011-2012 season and two playoff runs, Johnny Quick is a painfully average goalie. I can't think of another goalie who and is regarded as a top 5 goalie is as mediocre as JQ

His style of goaltending gave him a couple years window of great play, but otherwise it's tough to maintain as you get closer to 30. You've seen the way he moves and he wear and tear he puts on his body. His downfall could be coming very "quick"ly...

He was amazing in that shootout against the russians. Other than that he has seemed average at best the last year and change.

 

When I try tell people that (even ones that aren't Kings fans) they scoff. He benefits from a very defensive system in LA, and he still isn't having vezina level years.

 

 

The only person more overrated was the "king" in the 2012 season for the rangers.

These playoffs are stressing me out and depressing me more than they should.

 

F that, I'm gonna go to the Red Bulls game tonight. If I can't watch live hockey in Newark, I might as well watch live soccer in Harrison.

Pittsburgh is all over Columbus, 3-0. Game 3 just broke Columbus, they're toast.

I'm torn. Penguins get the Rangers if they best Columbus, right?

So.. I want to see the Jackets win, but I think the penguins have a much better chance of beating the Rags.

Matt Cooke suspended 7 games. Given his history, it should've been even more.

Columbus ties it up and forces OT. CBJ has shown a lot of guts tonight.
