That was a solid beatdown. But I'm not convinced they learned how to not choke in playoffs yet.

First period was. Second and third, not so much but Lu managed to stand on his friggen head, something that did not happen the last 2 years.

Now if the Swedes would just show up.

7 games + OT to knock off an 8 seed does not bode well.

Meh...Can you blame me for being pessimistic towards Nashville? Their playoff history is pretty suspect. The first two playoff trips were particularly bad.

Vancouver are chockers though. Hard to say who will fail first.

I thought the word "canuck" was supposed to be derogatory. Sort of like having a Mexican team called the "Tijuana Spicks". Go figure.
And go Bruins.

Vancouver wins, and we have to give the cup back to Canada, not to mention that it'll make Bearguin happy...

...on the other hand, if Boston wins we'll have to put up with Doctor X gloating over another Boston championship.

This sucks.

Nope. Just a nickname. Never meant to be derogatory. At least I've never taken it that way, regardless of the intent.

And go Bruins.

I seem to recall Senator Edmund Muskie getting flack when running for President in 1972 when Nixon's team forged a phony letter using the term.

Looks like this is my last year as a Canucks fan so good to see them get the cup.

Not sure if it's Jets or Thrashers, or Moose, or Threshers or what the name will be but I'll be rooting for Winnipeg next year.

Third period was good hockey. First two had too many penalties, and dumb ones that didn't need to be called.Always makes the game worse.

It deserved 1 game, not 4.

But because it was Horton who is out, the league probably figured it best to keep Rome out and avoid any further altercation. He won't be missed by Vancouver.

And I do think Horton should have kept his head up moving through center ice like that.

Here's hoping I'm somewhere where I can watch the games Monday. Apparently not outside of Grand Coulee.

But the dam light show was cool.

Can someone check on Bearguin and make sure he hasn't hung himself in his closet?
