The Bruins woke from their hibernation while the Make Beliefs went into hibernation. :)
Seems TOR M L had a plan to get the split in Boston.
They were not the hard skating team like in game 1.
This may come back to haunt them.
Caps up 2 games to nil.
Music City Preds & Dallas Stars went at it tooth & nail.
Both goalies stood on their head.
Each team could of scored 4-5 goals.
Nashville could of lost this one if it were not for great puck stopping Rinnie & puck off crossbar...
But Nashville played hard & deserved the W.
Yes the place was loud too. Series tied 1-1.
Calgary series 1-1 ...with Aves
St Louis Blues up 2-0 in series vs Jets.
Sharks/Vegas Knights 1-1 series
Columbus 2-0 over Tampa.
Caps are up 2-0 over Hurricanes.
Pens vs Islanders ??? Have not a clue on this series.
Lots of good hockey being played.
Bet Chris is ok with the spilt in Boston.
TO now had home advantage.

Better game Saturday.  Preds kept the pressure up and if it weren't for Bishop would have scored a bunch of goals.  Hopefully they woke up and realized they are in the playoffs and cannot coast anymore.

Crazy bunch of games in this playoffs.  Jets lose both at home unable to solve the Blues goalie and then go to St. Louis and figure him out and score a whole bunch.  Rough rough matchup.

Who would have thought the Lightning would be 0-3?  Wow.  Same with the Penguins?  Craziness.

Lot of fights and heavy hitting and even cheap shots.  One suspension, another likely coming, possibly two.  Lot of bad blood already.

Seen Bishop play lousy games but he sure did look "steady Eddy".
Lots of hard fought games.
Vegas is Sharks nightmare.
Ya as TNA stated surprise surprise Pens & Tampa behind 0-3 in series.
Players/coaches not in the mood for comedy or jokes or laughing.
Pissed ,angry,humbled,disappointed....the series must feel like two guys hiking up a mt. & one guy has no pack & the other guy 80 lb backpack.
Get a W & keep foot on the pedal ...then 2 W's & get the other team nervous ;D
St Louis Blues look good till ...goalie had a lapse. Billington(?) name.
Will the real Maple Leafs show up tonight?
Flames /Avs 1-1 in series.
Avs look good.
Columbus look good.
Islanders look good.
Dallas/Preds both look good. Anyone's series.
Pens & Tampa need a miracle. Better get on their knees.  ;D

Caps lost badly. Hurricanes in their building for game 3  & they did not disappoint.
Flames also lost badly to Avs.
Calgary will put up so better fight in game 4 to try to tie up the series.
Preds win over Stars in Dallas ! Preds up 2-1 in series.
Nashville played their best game that I ever seen them play. Break out out of their zone. Transition play great. Long crisp passes. Great defensive play in their zone.
They won 3-2 in an exciting close game. 3rd goal was a lesson of  "just shoot the puck in the direction of the net & good things may happen" not a hard shot but thru lots of bodies screen  & in.
And finally Leafs win by a goal in a great game.
Whole TO team played great as did Boston. But Leaf players were emotionally up for this game coming home to their loyal fans.
Big win for them.

I have seen much more dominate performances from Nashville but not this post season.  The first period looked awesome.  Half of the second looked awesome.  Then it was hold on to your shorts and defend the crap and then wait for amazing saves from the goalie.  They got them though.  Surviving a 5 on 3 for a minute and a half with just shot after shot after shot, some extremely dangerous ones and somehow pulling it out.... gotta love it.  But please, for my heart and sanity, please have more cushion next time.

St. Louis goalie is Bennington, fyi.

Wow Pens & Tampa have something in common.
Kicked out after 4 games.
Buy paper brown bags & Tums for stomach acid.
As the NHL world turns.
How about those Jets!
Win in OT.
Series tied 2-2. Super hockey series.
Game 4-0 with10:40 to go in 3rd.
Sharks look like toast.
They will be down 3-1 in series.
Next game in California. Short plane flight.
Canucks players should have to watch all playoff games now or in the training camp next season.
They can see what it takes.

Both Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay eliminated in 4 straight. Certainly didn't see this one coming.

No kidding.  Crazy crazy year.  Did not see any prediction that either of those teams would be swept, let alone getting knocked out.  Preds proved last year, winning a lot of games in the regular season means jack crap when it comes to the playoffs other than home ice but if you can't win on your home ice in the playoffs, it means nothing.

Chris & TNA teams did not so well tonight but the positive is the series are tied 2-2.
Leafs looked better than the Preds.
Preds just were never in the game at all.
They got the split so guess that's ok with them as they have home advantage still.
Leafs were taken to school tonight.
Leafs youth & lack of battle scars....mental tough Bruins put it together.
Gee thought the interview guy was going to lick the face of the Bruin. He keep bending to words the Bruin face licker. Table turned.
Calgary battling tonight. Game on.

Honestly stopped watching as Preds just went thru motions.
But they have a plan. Win the next game.  ;D
Caps / Hurricanes great series. Tied 2-2.
Sharks come back & play hard ( backs against the wall ) & now series is 3-2..for Vegas.
Jets up 2-0 & lose 3-2.
That had to be a tough tough tough loss.
Down now 3-2 in series. Next game in St Louis.
Seemed no way Blues would win this game as Jets had all the energy but....
In the mean time Columbus & Islanders are resting & waiting for next team who will be beat up tired & ready to be taken down....
Avs are bigger faster & think the Flames are having a tough time going full out 60 minutes against this team. Who will win the Cup is beyond me?
Lots of hungry teams in this yrs playoffs.

Visiting teams get the Ws !
Toronto best Bruins in Boston.
Looked like such a defensive game & finally a few goals scored in 3rd.
Ya it was a bang bang play but honestly Rusk was bumped & goal should of been dis allowed.
Rusk could of possibly did the Gump Worsley double pad save.
Leafs ahead 3-2 in series.
Calgary could not seem to buy a 2nd goal.
Avs seemed to use them like a stepping stone or workout or sparring partner.
Flames win first game & then lose 4 straight.
Some one goal games ...crazy.
Just shows ya ya have to play your very best 60 minutes or else ...
Thought ref called some weak penalties against Flames so that did not help. Some good teams are now on vacation.
