Anyone getting in on playing the book for the playoffs? I'm really enjoying the Yahoo Daily Challenges.

They're used to the murder rate in Detroit, just another day in the motor city.

Hawks get Keith back, take game 2. Hope to hear lots of Chelsea Dagger the next two games.

shortly after that replay chi scored and it went to replay. The guys in the war room said it was a good goal then the stl coach challenged it. Has a coaching challenge ever overturned what the guys in Toronto ruled?

Not sure but I doubt it. Toronto made a decision, they tell to have a second look...doubt Toronto would admit they were wrong.

Rags and Pens afternoon bout, gonna be good

Keith Jones and one of the guys on SiriusXM NHL radio say this is the year that the Blues advance.
As a lifelong StL fan, I have my doubts.
Elliot looks great, Tarasenko must be Tarasenko, the rookies have great energy, but I don't feel good about this series.
Comments?

Hawks fan checking in. Looking at regular season match ups, the only wins STL has were in OT or shootout. Chicago closed them out in regulation. Granted STL has never been a fully healthy team line up wise in the regular season, now they are.

STL is bigger and more physical, but Chicago seems to have that extra gear they can switch to when needed.
I wasn't looking forward to Dallas or STL in the first round. Its going to be tough, but I still have my cash on Chicago, no homer.

A few friends of mine are Blues fans, we agree this is the best Blues team in a while.

Taco, that's the thing, the extra gear which the Hawks have, my Blues lack. Sorry to say.
Well see, I hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

Cout's injury from game 1 isn't helping either.

Any Blues fans here? Can you relate to this statement? I will not feel confident about this series until it's over. Being a Blues fan in the first round is rough. You wanna get excited and confident, then reality sets in. It ain't over till it's over.
Geez!

I understand the need/desire to ensure goals are goals (or etc in other sports) but I think the reviews and coach reviews are taking too long and can kill momentum and allow rest/planning etc in an unfair way. Idk, I guess no system is perfect but even with high-def and review you still see plays in hockey and baseball that are "too close to call" even on that micro-scopic level. And it delays games. Assuming umpires/refs are honest I think we might be going "too far" in reviewing everything. The "breaks" can go both ways and flow of games is also important.
ps: my Caps and my Stars are rolling strong! I just worry if they might meet up, after all. What then? Still a long way to go though....

The guys on,(I think it was), NHL Channel said "the Refs need to get the calls right, but to negate a goal on an offside entry 45 seconds earlier is kinda lame".  That's what happened game 2in StL. Good on Coach Q to challenge. Fair n square, but it still sucked.

Preds taking it to the Ducks, I'm shocked they're up 2 games.


Hawks in 6.

And my beloved Red Wings won last night against the Lightening  2-0.

Its about time Detroit gave back to Tampa (what we received in games 1 & 2)!!!!  And Brian Boyle is an absolute ass ...  he gave the chicken taunt at the end of the game because an injured Justin Abelkader (hand wrapped from earlier game) wouldn't rumble with him.   Wonder what will happen at Tuesday's game.

Hope you are right. I was kind of disappointed that they PKd Kane's double minor and then gave up the winning goal a couple of minutes later.

I was glad to see the Wings keep their streak going. I always like to see the original six in the playoffs.

Too bad the Bruins didn't make it. It will be a couple of years before Babcock can turn around the Leafs. I was really surprised how poorly Montreal did after how strong they were last year.
