    And the Leafs took the first game 4-1. Maybe they were just grifting everyone by playing so shitty going into the playoffs.

    I watched roughly half of that game last night, the Leafs looked much more patient/efficient in their general 5-on-5 play than I am use to seeing them. Maybe they learned from last year's playoff elimination.

    Love seeing Tampa struggle against CBJ, and NYI being successful, especially at the expense of Pittsburgh :D

    I expected them to choke again this year, but not this early or this hard :ugh:

    Yeah this is just crazy. I figured they'd choke before the Cup, but didn't expect them to get destroyed by Columbus.

    I wasn't expecting the Pens to choke this badly either, but it's also not shocking. Especially when Sullivan refuses to break off his love affair with Simon. I still can't believe they kept him on Syd's wing for that entire game yesterday after they were a -2 in the first and he missed a layup opportunity at an open net that would have tied the game as well as another glorious opportunity earlier in the period.

    Like I said earlier, they reminded me of the Caps when they won the Presidents trophy with Boudreau. At least against Montreal though the Caps dominated the games, they just got Halak’d. TB just has nothing going for them. The last regular season game against the Caps showed what is needed to beat them. They tried to get physical and the Caps curb stomped them, CBJ is doing the same. Their star players wilt when it comes to physical play. Sometimes teams are just a bad matchup, this is definitely not the kind of team they wanted to see in the first round.

    Caps have been pretty bad today though. Just lazy and sloppy play since the fight.

    Huge 3-2 win for the Leafs tonight.

    Real Back and Forth exciting game. Huge win for the Leafs, who I still feel are the underdog team.

    Won’t win many when you get outshot 45-17. Only had 11 shots until about 5 left in the 3rd. I’ve seen some ugly Caps playoff games and I do mean UGLY, but that may have been the worst.

    Now if Pittsburgh would get themselves swept tonight too, I will already be 100% content with this year's playoffs and ok with any outcome :fawk:

    Good for CBJ, not only for pulling what has to be the biggest first round upset ever, but finally winning as series after 19 years.

    The East just got very interesting and the playing field for the Cup has never felt so wide open.
