I'm sure everyone here has their focus on the draft right now (who wouldn't) but the Penguins and Senators are dead locked at 3-3 in the 3rd in game 5. Chance for the Pens to end it tonight. I'm flipping back and forth by the way.
OT: Pens vs Sens
is probably the most terrifying sporting event to watch as a fan, I almost can't watch when the wings go to OT.
the Wings in OT. WAY too stressful. It takes only one shot or weird bounce to end it. That's why I love watching other playoff games go into OT: I can watch and get a little bit stressed because it's so intense, but ultimately, I won't be too bothered no matter who wins (unless Crosby scores the winner, in which case...ugh).
There is nothing better than playoff hockey.
And overtimes just beg for a heart attack...
OT in the Stanley Cup playoffs has easily shaved a decade off my life, if not more.
I'm also want to point out how amazing this postseason has been so far; holy crap! Every series has been entertaining.
except for the NJ/Philly series, what happened to the devils?
The Devils struggled in the regular season against the Flyers and I wasn't that suprised to see that they won the series.
Go Sens Go!
AGH so close
What a game Leclaire is having the highlight of his career in this one!
It's the shape of the arena and how the microphones are placed in the arena, not the crowd. I've watched games on TV that I've been to and it's amazing how different it sounds on TV. The problem is the open space of the "dome" and the layout of the seats. Not making excuses; just telling the truth. Versus also tends to turn down the crowd volume for some reason. Watching the same game on Versus and FSN-Pittsburgh would give you a completely different perspective of the crowd volume, as well.
I didn't realize this game was still going on. Holy shit.
Next to the Wings winning the Stanley Cup, I get no greater joy in hockey than watching Sid the cry baby lose.
How very Spartan of you.
To be truly Spartan, he'd rather see the Pens lose (to anyone) than the Wings win
Beautiful win! That should kill some moral!
what do you have against ethics, anyway?
Both teams played so hard tonight and it really was an even match. I'm looking forward to seeing how this one pans out after it's all said and done. My hats off to Pascal Leclaire. He was amazing in net during the 3 overtimes. Bet the CBJ miss him now. Great game!
Whoa - look up there!
It's the joke!
I wouldn't really call it an even match. The Sens got two goals early in the first period and pretty much held on for dear life until the 3rd overtime. I wouldn't exactly call that a positive sign for the Sens, regardless of the win.
Exactly. The Pens dominated that game from about the mid-point of the first period onward. Ottawa owes that win to one player: Pascal Leclaire. He played out of his mind.
like a pro version of Michigan hockey.
Fun to watch.
And yes, I'd like to see them beat the Pens, or at least stretch them out to 7 games.
