    The difference to me seemed to be the amount of traffic in front of the net and Boston had guys there to get the rebounds unlike the previous games.

    True, but the first goal he gave up at the start of the 2nd period was inexcusable. A very stoppable shot but it just deflected off of his catching mitt and in the net.

    The fact that Brad Marchand is a diving little punk didn't help us either.

    What did concern me was how he handled the Bruins crashing the goal and otherwise camping out in front of the goal. He seemed to be very timid. I'd like to see him (and the Caps defenders) be more physical with the Bruins when they are camped out in front of the net.
    He's probably a little timid because when he did start protecting, he got a penalty. The officiating has been awful, across the league, in the playoffs this year.

    Caps fan here also, and being such stop watching as soon as the playoffs start.

    It would almost be like the Ravens, constantly get to the playoffs and poop it out, EXCEPT the Caps woul be like the Ravens going 15-1 every year and dominating everyone and than losing every year after their first round bye.

    Brutal loss for the Devils last night. Both goalies chased after a wild 2 periods and no goals in the 3rd. The Devils had their chances too but the Panthers defense played great when it counted.

    Caught a glimpse of someone being knocked out and carted off the ice. What team / player was it?

    Marian Hossa. Hit was by Torres. A couple of years ago it would have been a legal hit - nowadays who knows (kind of like the NFL that way)? Given Torres' history (he knocked out Seabrook last year) I would expect a hefty suspension.

    Marian Hasso of the Blackhawks got laid out by Raffi Torres of the Coyotes.

    Brendan Shanahan was one of my all time favorite players but I'm not sure he's suited for the enforcement job. He needs to call up Goodell and get some pointers.

    I find hockey interesting, but I've never really been able to get into it.

    Growing up in Baltimore and the Eastern Shore hockey isn't really a big deal at all. No one really follows it down there.

    I'm just glad to see they finally made it to the playoffs. Now they have the opportunity to do what most thought was not possible. It's awesome.

    The NHL playoffs are perhaps the best playoffs in all of sports. The intensity level for every game and in every round is unmatched.

    You really need to watch it live. I grew up with the Islanders and Oilers playing great hockey and used to watch it on TV but it didn't really sink in. Later on being able to go to the Rangers, Devils, Islanders and Whalers games on a regular basis is what made me a fan. Hockey is a big deal in NY which is also part of it.

    Agree with GOTA.

    Once I saw it live, I was hooked. TV does not do the game justice, although the advent of HDTV has helped some. Caps tix are insanely expensive though. If you can make the trek, head up to Hershey and watch the Bears.
