I just wanted to chip in that after watching Kreider play for BC in the Frozen Four (and take out my homeboys, the Gophers) and now shine in this playoffs so far, that I am a real fan of his play. That breakaway goal this afternoon against the Caps was siiiick. Normally I'm a Ranger hater, so this is significant for me.

You are 100% correct, and I would like to ask you (Gradin, feel free to

I kind of feel bad for him (coming from a Canuck hater) because I think he is a great goalie. He kept the Canucks in game one and 2 in the first round, won them 2 straight presidents trophys, got them to within one game of the Stanley Cup. He also happened to win the arguably most pressured game for any Canadian player in front of a home crowd for Olympic gold. He is not mentally fragile, and is a great goaltender, there is no way he should be a scapegoat.

Back to the other games, you have to like the way the Caps played but not Holtby.
Go Caps and Go Devils!!
Oh yea.... Go Preds and Go Yotes straight to 7 grueling games.

I don't like that Kovalchuk is on the team, but . . . go New Jersey.
Not a Flyers fan.

5-3 Phoenix over Nashville
So much for a low scoring series

no kidding, just saw that score. I didn't realize Renne had let in 5 6 times this year.

Anyone see how Keith Jones ripped Radulov a new one during the second intermission? No? Well here you go cuz it was awesome.

Yeah, I saw that. Pretty brutal, pretty accurate though.

He's not mentally fragile as in he's awesome one game then lets a softy in the next and needs a mental repair, he's more like a...dunno, a sleeper? Late bloomer? He had an awesome career to some point, he got a humongous contract, and when some bad things piled on...well, he "woke up" I think. And that's the case with a lot of people. How many athletes had awesome and incredibly consistent results and successes...and then something happens, and it all starts to fall apart. The rope of success is difficult to hang on to. And it sure is hard to climb back on it.
