Keith's slash on Carter looks much worse from this angle:

Hawks scrapped out the road win they needed. Need to ice this thing on Saturday as the Bruins look like they're on the verge of sweeping.

Kings are too banged up to get past this round. Top guys are hurt and we're missing our 2C. It's been a valiant effort to repeat, but doesn't seem to be in the cards this season.

I am very happy that our window will stay open for the rest of the decade.

Definitely nothing to hang your head about. You guys have a solid core of young players. Quick imo is the best goalie in the league.

I don't think calling Quick the best goalie in the league is warranted. He had an incredible season last year, but this year he was very pedestrian in the regular season not hitting top 10 among starters in any stats and in the post season he has been good but not great, certainly he has been no better than Crawford, Rask or Niemi.

Right now there is not a goalie in the league who has shown the kind of solid play over several years in both regular and post season to earn the title of best. Bobrovsky, Quick, Rask, Crawford, Lundquist have all shown good play recently but none of them stand out over the rest.

I am surprised the Bruins have been winning as clearly as they have, but not surprised the Pens aren't dominating - they were a paper tiger in the playoffs who had the great fortune of playing the 2 worst teams to make the final 16. The defense and goaltending for Pittsburgh is simply too weak and they lack the cohesiveness up front to avoid falling apart when Crosby and Malkin go on tilt.

I wanted Shero to trade Crosby, keep staal and work it that way. I also think MAF is no longer viable. His brain is broke somewhere. He tries to do too much, i think the early years of throwing him on a terrible NHL team as a rookie gave him PTSD.

Wonder what happens to Malkin, his contract is up after next season and rumor is he wants to be the highest paid player in the NHL. I'd like the Kings to sniff around if Shero decides to listen to offers for Malkin who is definitely a top 3 player in the NHL.

Personally I think he has the potential to be THE BEST. Just has to be more consistent in his effort.

Quick had a pedestrian regular season because he was just recovering from back surgery that he had in the offseason.

He had a minor surgery in August, something that has less then 2 month recovery period - I don't buy that he was having a down season because he was recovering still. If he was recovering then his numbers should be worse in January and February and then improve through the season, but March was by far his worst month.

Malkin needs to lead, every time Crosby is playing well and Malkin doesn't get the quality minutes he fades. Put him on a team where he can be the alpha-male in terms of ice time and quality (like Tavares or the Sedins) and he will be in the race for the Hart every year.

When he's not waking up in cold sweats from nightmares involving Chara and Rask shutting his candy ass down.....

There's nothing minor about back surgery and combine that with the fact the Kings were without two excellent defenseman in Greene and Mitchell. Of course his numbers were going to drop off. He's been the reason the Kings have made it this far in their title defense and he shows up in the big games.

He will be signing a 8 year deal in early July. AAV will be about 10.

Jimmy Howard had 3 rookie defensemen play significant minutes in front of him this year, didn't hurt his numbers. He has been excellent in the playoffs, but he was simply not up to par for being "the best" in the regular season. For comparison, Martin Brodeur has had as bad or worse GAA in exactly 2 seasons and the same for save % (and that is out of the 19 he has played).

Quick can't hold Crawfords Jock this year. He was run out of one game this series, he gave up a soft goal (knuckler) last night. Crawford is the reason the Hawks are up 3-1 in the conference final and won the President's cup.

It is a shame Bickle is in a contract year it will be hard for us to sign him after his performance throughout the year and in the playoffs.

Hoping we can close it out at home Saturday!

Thanks SoCal.

Bruins.....and Chara and Rask in particular...are just playing a different game right now. Timing is everything in the NHL playoffs. If we played you in the first round, it's probably a different story. 3rd round after a week's rest, getting our mojo back after the Game 7 scare against Toronto? Everything changed.

I never would've given us a chance against either Pitt or Chicago a month ago. Now? I really feel it's our's to lose if we keep playing like this.
