    Yeah, if only to save them from further embarrassment. What an awful season

    Maggie's made her playoff picks.

    JR, you'll likely be pleased to know Cherry is going to make some appearances on NBC's playoff coverage.
    I'm not sure exactly when he'll be on, but he's slated to appear a couple of times at least I believe.

    Yeah Fluff, hearing that made me very happy. He should be doing all the games though.

    Wow what a game for Ottawa! Marc certainly looked nervous and he didn't seem to relax Those early two goals really did him in. If they're going to win, he's going to have to calm down. Not that there's anything wrong with Ottawa winning!

    I had to laugh when Talbot flicked the back of Corvo's helmet after there was that little scuffle at the end.
    He was so determined to get the last 'word' in there
    I thought Fleury calmed down nicely, even though he did let in a few before Thibault took over.
    I watched as much of the western conference matches as I could before I had to get some sleep.
    Vancouver/Dallas went to the fourth overtime and San Jose/Nashville to the second.
    Hopefully Cheechoo will be fit to play again after the hit by Hartnell.
    Apparently his knee was so swollen the doctors liekly won't be able to assess the injury until today.

    Sometimes, it's so painful being a hockey fan or in this case being a Flames fan. I didn't watch all of the game, but what I did see really left a lot to be desired. I was really upset with the Flames. They didn't seem to be playing well at all. Collectively sucking! Now on to game 2. Fingers crossed.

    I couldn't believe that the Vancouver game went 4 OTs. That's a crazy good game. They played over 2 full games and must be quite tired.

    Looks like "Sid the kid" comes back to even up the series. Even though Ottawa lost, I enjoyed the game much more than the first. It was definitely much more even tempo game.
    I can only hope for the same tomorrow afternoon!

    Re: Hockey 2006

    I agree, the second Pens/Sens game was much better than the first.
    There are a few series that have been evened up now.
    Pens/Sens, Bolts/Devils, Preds/Sharks, Sabres/Isles are all even now.

    Rangers beat the Thrashers again.
    I wonder who Avery sees when he looks in the mirror. Gretzky? Lemieux?
    He's playing better than I would ever have expected him to.
    I'd like to see Atlanta make a bit more of a fight of it though.

    Calgary needs to pull even today and I'd love to see Minnesota take out Anaheim, but I don't think that's on the cards.

    Ugh, I don't think I can bang my head on something anymore. The Flames certainly didn't play to win. It's very frustrating because, in my opinion, they are in a must win situation. I don't think they can recover from a 3-0 lead.

    The Flames have been two teams all season.
    Brilliant at home, disastrous away.
    Normally you'd think any team without the home advatnage stands a decent chance of getting through because they technically only need to grab one game on the road out of the series to win, but with the Flames that seems like a tall order.
    The Wild lost to the Ducks again last night.
    They were wearing my absolute favourite jersey of any NHL team too, which I was hoping might act as a lucky charm
    Unfortunately not.

    I see the "hits to the head" debate is opening up again after Armstrong's hit on Eaves in the Pens/Sens game.
