The playoffs have been awesome so far... hits, fights, and all. My favorite part has been the lack of the Winnipeg Jets.

Torres suspended indefinitely pending in-person hearing. Folks are saying this means a minimum of 5-games.

I'd give Torres an 11 game suspension for this one. Out for this series and the next one.

Pens opening up a can tonight. Gonna crack double digit goals tonight. Too bad they didn't have some of these earlier in the series.

But...

No lead is safe with Fleury in net right now.

Which skyrockets the day the kid chooses to go somewhere else.

no sweeps, and the Rangers have to come back to Ottawa...

Fact: The Flyers didn't want to close it out before they got a chance to pummel Neal and Adams.

I don't know about that, but I'll take it either way. Like I said, I really want this to go to game 7. It will be amazing.

I'm surprised at how poorly the Rangers are doing in scoring.

I dunno, in my opinion games 3 and 4 were really underwhelming...both were blowouts with a little bit of dirtiness...

I think the best series has been Florida-New Jersey, but the stupid NHL didn't think it would be so they keep relegating it to NHL Network...

Best game though was probably game 1 of Flyers-Pens, and game 2 was pretty good as well.

Caps-Bruins probably going to be the game of the night tonight.

Schultz is getting scratched which is fantastic since he's been on ice for 4 of the 6 5-on-5 goals in the series...

Knuble is getting the call up for Backstrom, hopefully he'll play his way into sticking around for game 5 and sending Aucoin to the healthy scratch department.
