Game 1 of 'Battle of Florida' was the best game so far :5187:.  Very intense, back and forth right to the very end!  Panthers really took it to Tampa but the latter showed why they are the gold standard in NHL and incumbent Stanley Cup champions.

Exciting 'Battle of Florida' Game 3.  Panthers showed their desperation and it paid off :6280:.  Very very few teams can come back from 2 goals down to beat Tampa.

Meanwhile, Minnesota inexplicably went into meltdown after going 2-0 up against Vegas :4845:.  

Washington really let me down :5155:.  1-2 down in the series and I thought they would come out fighting for their survival.  But they showed less desire to win the game and are now staring at elimination.  You know what, it could well end up with Boston popping Toronto's bubble AGAIN in the semi-finals :4224:.

Watching the Oiler series, what sticks out for me is the lack of physicality. On the surface it looks like a super fast skating series but there's very little in the way of hitting compared to our games. The Jets have done a great job of getting on top of the Oilers big duo but they're mostly doing it with their sticks and getting their bodies in the way. Jet's goaltending has been out of this world so far too.

NHL.com.  Boston defenseman Kevan Miller will not play in Game 5 against Washington after a hit from Caps defenseman Dmitry Orlov.  The hit took place with 12:33 remaining in the second period and Miller spent the night in the hospital.  Orlov was given a major penalty that was downgraded to a minor after video review.  He was also assessed a minor for roughing against Charlie Coyle.

St Louis Blues are first playoff team to be eliminated and swept.  And their fans aren't even surprised or upset, lol. 

Washington getting eliminated in 5 games was surprising.  Maybe after finally having won a Cup, the Capitals feel they have nothing left to prove.  

Panthers so fast on the brink of elimination after putting up a good fight was also unexpected.

NY Islanders lived to fight another game with the Penguins. All even and square in the series.

Haha, Edmonton losing in OT despite being 2-0 up.  Waiting for the final nail in their playoff coffin.

Canada falls to 0 & 3 at World Hockey Championship losing to Latvia, Germany, and the US.  Canada has only scored 2 goals in three games so no Canadian from the Montreal Canadiens could really help them.

NY Islanders put Penguins on the brink of elimination :4322:.

Panthers and Wild staved off elimination to fight another game.

Winnipeg swept Edmonton :5210:!  At least the Habs won't go down as the worst performing Canadian team in this playoffs :P.

Poor Penguins.

Looks like Flo is in the swamp too, 4-0 TB, 1:25 to go. 

Over to the LV game. 0-0 in the 2nd

Pittsburgh Penguins have been eliminated early for the 2nd year in succession :5210::4322:!  Hope they decide to rebuild and dump their ageing veterans for MB to pick up for bargains :frech1:.
