Maple Leafs got hammered by the Bruins 5-1. They couldn't match up with Boston's forecheck in game 1. Hopefully game 2 has different results.

Excellent turnaround for the Flyers in Game 2 after that awful start.

Bryan Elliott was a brick wall and home field advantage has (albeit temporarily) been taken away from the Pens.  Hopefully the Flyers keep pouring it on for Game 3.

My understand is the Raiders are keeping the Las, as well they should.

FTFY :lol:

/not that I'm any fan of the Bruins but I hope the Leafs never win a Cup so long as that traitor Babcock is their coach

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

Once again, the Leafs didn't fare well in Game 2, losing 7-3 and are down 2-0. Hopefully their home ice advantage will work for Games 3 & 4...

Meanwhile, while the Jets are up 2-0 against the Wild, bad weather is causing problems for game 3 in Minnesota. I wonder if it may lead to the game being postponed (and that could also wreck the schedule for other games) as they had to fly back to Winnipeg because of the blizzard.

Las Vegas Golden Knights are one win away from the second round with a 3-2 victory over the LA Kings last night.

Leafs win tonight, a 4-2 victory to cut the series to 2-1 :)

Highlight I think comes from the Maple Leafs goaltender making an incredible save, along with the goals scored and the roar of the crowd. Hopefully another win will come Thursday night.

The Jets win Game 4 2-0 and are up 3-1 in the series, but that might be a game where they probably shouldn't have won, especially when an obvious penalty call goes unnoticed (Josh Morrissey cross-checks Eric Staal).

The officiating so far playoff wise has been awful, and I thought it was going to be fixed this year.

Nobody has said this yet, but, last night, Las Vegas is moving on after sweeping the Kings.

And the same goes for the Sharks as they move on after sweeping the Ducks. Weird that some games aired on Golf Channel (at least streaming wise) on this night, but then again, that's what teams will do when they exit out of playoff series and go to the golf course.

Yes! :-D Not many people here were picking the Jets to win the series, but the whiteout, home crowd, and talent made the difference.

Meanwhile, the Avalanche and Flyers both stave off elimination to force a game 6 in each of their respective series.

Leafs stay alive as they hold off the Bruins rally in the 3rd period to win 4-3 and force a Game 6.
