Impelled by this Senator-Rangers game, which already has Carkner and Dubinsky out for an early and frank exchange of opinions.

It's like a person making 40K a year being fined $13 as a percentage of their money, and the percentage has a less of an impact on them (a multi millionaire losing half his money is still a miliionaire).

RT @BComptonNHL: Carl Hagelin will have hearing tomorrow afternoon for hit on Daniel Alfredsson. #NHL

Man, it was not a good hit, but I hope he isn't suspended for it. He got a five minute major for it. I don't think more punishment is necessary. It would be a big blow to the Rangers and give Ottawa a chance to get a leg up in the series.

If you are a hockey fan this NYR -OTT game is tough to beat.

And as I'm typing that the Rangers score. I was really pulling for the Sens so that's tough to see.... the Rangers have a huge advantage with Lundqvist in net.

This is a great game. I love the physical nature of the game and refs letting them play for the most part. I have to root for the Rangers because of Carl and Torts. Outside of Babcock, Torts is by far my favorite coach.

Boston-Washinton was amazing. I think that may have been one of the best games I've seen all year. Both goalies were ridiculous for 5 periods of hockey until Boston gave it up in the second OT.

What makes playoff hockey great is the drama, in paricular, the sudden death overtimes. While my Bruins lost today, that was a great game. I really haven't been disappointed at all by any of the series. I'm glad Ottawa is actually giving the Rangers a game today, and hopefully (yeah I know the Rangers have Hagelin) they can win and make this a series (MOAR Hockey). Looks like the Blues are about to level their series with the Sharks.

EDIT: Nevermind, Rangers game over.

This playoff year gets crazier and crazier. 

If you would have told me last weekend that Vancouver would be down 2-0, Pittsburgh also down 2-0, and Ottawa even won a game, I probably would have laughed. Parity has come a long way, I guess.
