How does Malkin and Crosby combine, fail to score a point in 4 games?

Another great game tonight that could have gone either way.

Last night's loss by the Kings was rough. Can they win at United Center to send the series back to L.A. at least one more time?

I still believe the Kings have the ability to force a Game 7 with Chicago if they can make it home alive. They will need their A-game tomorrow night. I'm still not sure if the Kings are lacking offensive firepower or if the Hawks are just really that good on defense. I believe it's a little of both, but more so the latter. Every game it seems like Chicago has two extra players on the ice at all times. They just seem to be everywhere the puck is. Very dominating for sure.

Exactly...0 points, not even an assist. Maybe Sid is more hurt than thought. Malkin is a front runner.

I have two thoughts about that and both come down to coaching.

First, Boston was able to get the matchups they wanted, even in Pittsburgh, where the Penguins had the shift change advantage. Crosby lined up against Patrice Bergereon, Boston's #1 shut down forward, virtually every time he was on the ice. Boston played a tight, smothering game, especially against Pittsburgh's stars. Why wasn't something done to shake up the matchups?

Second, I didn't see much in leadership or composure on the ice from any of the Penguins who ought to have it. Malkin fought - which is a good idea if that's your role. Not such a great idea if you're a star forward. The same thing began to happen to Toews, in Chicago, but somebody, somewhere in the organization got his head screwed back on straight. Where was that type of leadership in Pittsburgh?

It doesn't speak much to Bylsma's talents, as he appeared to be neither a capable motivator/leader nor tactician.

Congrats to the Blackhawks and their fans. The Kings might have lost in 5, but at least they didn't go down without a fight in the last game. Chicago has a superb team this year, and if they play the Bruins with the same tenacity they dealt the Kings, I see the results going as follows:

Chicago in 6

I remember nothing between about 4 minutes into the overtime period, and 4:30 a.m. when I woke up with the TV still on. These overtime games are killing me!

Oh, and Oildog ... Jagr looks hot with that beard!
