I am not surprised but it is nuts that you can blatantly cheap shot a guy, in the head no less in this era of concussion awareness, without any kind of punishment whatsoever

I wrote about the Penguins getting through the playoffs without a single defenseman playing the role of a true No. 1 or No. 2 and how unheard of that is. It is really insane that their No. 6 guy plays almost as much as their top guy at the moment.

They are still fortunate to be here. It would be almost unheard of to win a Stanley Cup this way in this era.

I hate Anaheim but I think they're a better matchup for the pens. Plus if they win tonight the series goes 7 games.
You're pretty on the inside,

Not me. I've been to SoCal and Nashville, I'd rather to to SoCal 1000 times out of 1000.

It's still dumb. That's 5:00 there. Let's just keep it all in the same time zone.

very good article. nice research too.

Do you think the forwards have stepped up more to help the defense? I've been impressed more than a few times with Malkin and Crosby especially (maybe because I didn't expect it).

Bwah ha ha ... just realized Nashville is an hour behind. I'm having a terrible week on the board with U.S. geography.

Nashville moved to California?

Well, it's Nashville. So it no longer matters who anyone wants to play. First, we gotta beat Ottawa tomorrow night. First things first.
