Way out of the crease. Stay in your lane.

Still interference.

At absolute worst the major should've been called as a minor for cross-checking on Eakin and a minor for interference on Stastny (or a double minor, CC and int, on Eakin). 

I guess some guys in the Toronto offices either (a) have SJS in the office pool, or (b) want to see Thornton finally lift a Cup.

That was bad, granted he was knocked out and bleeding but it wasn't exactly the result of a malicious hit. WTF do they have replay for?

This is going to sting in Vegas for a while. Slot payouts cranked down another 2% out of spite.

Yeah, because they knew that San Jose would score 4 goals on a power play. Has that ever happened before?  If the Sioux did that, I would be mad at the call, but more upset that my team was so pathetic in killing it.

Would a cap on post-facto escalation work?  For instance, if a minor is called, it can be upgraded to a major on review.  If no penalty is called spontaneously, only a minor can be assessed?

It seems a lot of the angst last night is that we went from a no-call situation where play was allowed to continue over and around the clearly injured player, to a 5 minute major and a DQ, ostensibly ONLY after the extent of the injury was clearer.  Yet, the explanation felt lacking.

Separately...assuming the officials last night were persuaded by one or both linesmen (which I understand to be permissible), does it make sense to empower linesmen to make certain calls?  This might eliminate those situations where enhanced penalties seem to come out of nowhere.

Capitals got FEMA'd. "The response and recovery effort probably has never been seen for something like this," President Trump said. "This is an arena filled with frozen water, big frozen water, frozen ocean water."

Tom Wilson gets out-muscled in front of the net to give up the series winning goal.  How perfect.

Teams left

Remaining NHL teams, last Cup: 


Carolina 2006 - Dirty bastards, hope the sail away.
Colorado 2001 - Jost can lift it, I like it
Dallas 1999 - NO...rm green still sucks
Islanders 1983 - Brock hoisting it Yes Please
Columbus never - Interesting story, but meh
San Jose never - Dell on cup .. That would be the OKest.
St. Louis never - just no, how boring, unless they call up Schmaltz again, then.... maybe.

Boston 2011 - boston can chortle my balls after a hot day of cleaning grain bins.

The Bruins are the best team left.

I find it amusing that the Red Wings traded Mrazek and he's in the second round of the playoffs.
