Those hits were cheap. I'm all for hockey hits and fights, but like aardvarks said, they showed a complete lack of composure and where uncalled for.

I wouldn't be LOLing. You have to remember that Tampa didn't use the 1-3-1 for over half of the first period and Boston still couldn't score. Once Tampa went up 2-0, they could change over to the 1-3-1 and effectively shut down the B's.

Was Boston sloppy in game 1, absolutely. However, while Thomas gave up a terrible goal with the second goal and a bad giveaway led to the third, he kept it from being a blowout with several spectacular saves.

Plus the fact that the B's are 2 for 41 on the PP for the 12 games they have played in so far. That will not get them into the SCF.

So yeah, they're in trouble.

Default Canucks/Sharks series

The west series could be one that goes 7 games. Canucks take game 1 3-2 but it was very much an evenly played game. I like this series a lot.

Evenly played? You must have watched a different game than I did.

Neimi did well but the line was not working towards the end of 2nd period and on to 3rd period. Sharks will need to win game 2.

Why? Game wasn't dominated by anyone at any time, pretty much back and forth. Sharks could have won but Canucks won the battle in the third.

The Canucks dominated the third period I think primarily because the Red Wings series took it's toll on the Sharks. They looked both physically and mentally drained.

Had they been able to wrap the Detroit series up in 5, as they should have, and been resting like the Canucks, we may have not only seen a much different final 20 minutes, but possibly a different outcome..

Also, and I'm not saying this is the reason the Sharks lost, but the PP disparity was 5-1 in Vancouver's favor. I find it hard to believe that any NHL team can play 60 minutes and only give up 1 PP..

Even ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
I could see that SJ was stronger than Nashville, But Vancouver STILL dominated.
SJ's first goal was worthless, as it was a STUPID play by Luongo, giving the puck away in front of an open net, . . . and Vancouver STILL climbed back from this devastating setback.
In reality the score should have been 3-1 or better in Vancouver's favor.

vancouvers first goal was worthless and came off a bad clear by niemi and horrible recovery by wallin...........

it's the playoffs, you're going to get soft goals and great saves - it's all part of it

I tuned in during the 2nd period and the Sharks looked better. Things changed not long after, and Vancouver dominated the rest of the way.
