This game is unreal. If you're not a fan of the opposition, how do you not dig Nashville, particularly WITH Rusev's avid support?

and what did they play after winning the game/series/conference?

Our long national nightmare is over.

 

Honestly, one of the dirtiest teams I've seen in like 30 years of watching. Cannot imagine why anyone would miss them.

Amazingly enough, they're less dirty than they used to be.  They were far, far worse when they had Chris Pronger.

The people of Orange County don't even give a shit about them. Such an appalling collection of thugs and human filth, glad to see the back of them. Now I just want Rusev to return to Smackdown in a tank holding up the Stanley Cup with PK by his side.

And we have a game 7.  I don't know how this will go.  I could see Ottawa winning 3-2 or Pens winning 5-0.

Craig Anderson is, as usual, the X factor. Like, I don't think anyone would claim with a straight face he's an A-list goalie like Lundqvist or Price or Holtby have been. But *on his day* he can stand toe to toe with anyone. You just don't fucking know with him, and he's a scary guy to bet against.

 

I really thought Ottawa and Boston were super lucky to draw each other in round 1 because I didn't think they could beat any of the other playoff teams. Ottawa's been great no matter what though. Heart and commitment.

Ottawa just won't die.  I thought the Pens could hold on when they got the 2-1 lead with about 8 minutes left but the Senators tied it up very quickly.  I think Ottawa probably ends up taking this in sudden death.  They feel like a team of destiny right now.

This game is like a Jake LaMotta fight.

Penguins dominated that first OT but couldn't get one to go.  Kessel blew two golden opportunities.   Still feels like Ottawa will win via quick roll up.

It just had to be...them. Proud of the Sens, they were almost Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania but will have to settle for being Jeff Hardy in a ladder match vs The Undertaker.

Very hard for me to see Nashville beating Pittsburgh without their #1 centre to be honest, but here's hoping it is close.

Pens up 2-0 early but PK did have a goal taken off the board after review. I didn't see how close the offside call was.

That was a frustrating game to watch. Fuck the 10 minute offside reviews. Someone please change the "skate in the air" technicality on offside calls during this offseason.

Yeah, seems like your skate being off the ice shouldn't make you offside, so long as it's above the blue line.
