I don't know about streaking, but I know them dang Cap's know how to test their fans :pound:

Happy to see them make it to the second round, but then again, well, maybe it's their year to beat the Pen's :hmm:

Amen, sir, amen!  I'm feeling hopeful (not confident) about the Pens-Caps series.  The Caps scoring is much deeper this season, that was a significant issue in the playoffs last year.  I'm also glad that they had to keep playing for something through the end of this season.  Last year's coasting just didn't sit right with me, it seems really tough for a team to try to get back to intense hockey after a month of having nothing to play for.  It'll be interesting to see what happens, I expect another tough series.  And Game 5 (I'm pretty confident it will be needed) will be played a week from Saturday, while some of the TST folks are in town here.

I'm feeling hopeful as well, but that other team seems to show up in the playoffs, at least against the Pen's, you know the one we usually don't see in the regular season.  And agree that it will probably be a tough series, and of course I'll watch, but more like a scary movie keeping my hand over my eyes. With the games starting at 8:00, hopefully I get up in time for the round Sunday morning.

Gonna be a good one for sure - watching it closely because winner plays my NYR if they get by OTT. Washington had their hands full with an 8 seed but the Pens are banged up. I see it going 7, don't know who takes it.

As long as it goes 7 I could care less. I'm hoping the Rangers advance and find either Pitt or The Caps beat up and bloodied.

Can't say I'm super excited anymore, but I'll probably give the Pens-Caps a look. I'll have to get really creative to root for one of these guys over the other.

Oh boy, game 7 tonight.  Can the Caps dominate like Monday?  Will the Pens get (and convert) on a bunch of odd man rushes, like the first game?  I have no idea what's going to happen, but I'll be riveted to the screen tonight.

Yes sir! It will definitely be an on the edge of your chair game tonight, I would prefer to see the Cap's dominate like Monday, but I'll settle for a win, anyway they can get it.

Rooting for Washington cause I Feel bad for OV and the Caps lack of playoff success in past 

maybe they figure out MAF 

Looking for a competitive game 7 match and bounce back from the Penguins

They certainly seemed to exploit the same hole, high glove, for several of the goals on Monday.  But he watches video too, he'll be working to eliminate the weakness if he possibly can.  Same with the whole Pens team, I also expect a strong effort, along with a few coaching tweaks.   I expect a tight game, or even OT.  I hope my heart can take it!

Even though my Oilers lost tonight, I have to say I'm happy and proud of the strides the team made this season.  

Not that I'm going to watch many more games for the rest of the playoffs, but I'm rooting for Nashville until it ends.

No. Screw this good sportsmanship nonsense.

The idea of rooting for the Senators is a bit of dubious thing, but with Boston and Toronto out, I'm in an anyone but P-burg mode.

Funny pic!  and congrat's to the Pen's, they did what they needed to, and the Cap's, well, do what they always do, just crap the bed when it matters.

I may need to 'borrow' the pic for my avatar...

Put MAF back in goal for game 7   I think he deserves it even though he likely wouldn't be back with the Pens next year
