    Amazing what Vegas did to the Sharks in game one. Looks like Pittsburg is on another run. The Jets and Preds tonight.

    I haven't paid much attention to him play in the regular season but if he can carry that momentum and play like he did in round one, things look good for the Jets.

    So the refs let a lot go and when they call a penalty it's usually both teams then in overtime they call three marginal calls on Vegas, including disallowing the goal to take the win away from them. If I was the owner of VGK I would be on the horn to Bettman. Best of five now, still hoping for Vegas, just to show the league. I guess they really have already showed them with the season they've had. Maybe that has something to do with it. Just my opinion.

    I was watching a recording of "The Greatest Royal Rumble" from Friday, so I missed the game but I followed the game on my iPad. A 2-0 lead in the series would be the best possible outcome for the Jets but a split is the next best thing. This series will go 7 games.

    That was two really good games last night, both decided in the final minutes. I had been having a hard time watching much playoff hockey until last night, but that was entertaining as heck.

    In most cases imo Home ice advantage always decides the series. This series imo will go 7 games down to the wire in Nashville, and anyone want to Bet(tman) there will be a controversial call against the Jets game 7? Shades of Ducks/Oilers last year. The narrative is underway, like in WWE the script already written. Only the audience doesn't know the outcome. Twenty five years since Bettman later, no Canadian team has won the Stanley Cup. Granted Gary Bettman has been vilified enough over the years especially in Canada. Conspiracy? I'm leaning that way but as long as Bettman is the NHL boss, sorry to say this but no Canadian team will ever win the Stanley Cup. I'd like to see a Winnipeg/Pens in the finale, and that could happen. Its a dangling carrot in front of Canadian fans. Please keep in mind I'm not whining, just observing.

    Its been over 25 years since a Canadian team won the cup. We all know this. If there were a balance of Canadian US/teams, then fine but other then Quebec city, maybe Atlantic Canada, Canada has about run out of cities that can support a NHL team. There was a pol some years ago that a Canadian team has a 99.2 % chance of taking the Cup. This comment basically says it better then I could:

    The NHL and Gary Bettman can't afford to have a Canadian team win the Stanley Cup. Its no secret that Bettman (an American) is trying to develop the game in the US and is seeking the coveted US TV contracts. So the best way to do this is to have US team win the cup to drive up support in the US, however he can't alienate the CDN fans either. So what are we seeing, usually a CDN team makes it quite far (to appease CDN fans - who are the strongest economic supporters of the game) only to be ousted by a US team. Take a look at the inconsistent officiating whenever a CDN team plays and it will become clear that there is a slight incline towards US teams when it comes to making calls. Do not forget HOCKEY IS A BUSINESS and the number one goal of any business is to make money and there is no money in a CDN team winning as CDN fans will attend games whether the team wins or loses. The game as we knew it is gone - Thanks Gary!

    What a load of BS. I'm not even going to read that crap. I'm sick of the whining from some Canadian fans. It's embarrassing. There is no favouritism toward US teams by officials. The NHL doesn't have it in for Canadian teams. It's as silly an idea as saying the draft was rigged for the Oilers. Or 9/11 conspiracy theories.

    How do you get from "it's a business", to "the game is rigged"? By connecting dots you invent to suit your theory.

    Find one fan of any team that thinks refs are biased toward their team.

    What difference would it make anyway, when the power play and penalty killing came up short, at the worst possible times, all season long?

    More than anything else I can think of, it's the tax advantage in certain jurisdictions that makes it harder for Canadian teams to compete salary wise. Travel also plays into things. Pretty easy for teams on the East coast.

    If anything, the Oilers benefitted from the expansion draft, because, for some reason I can't fathom, they didn't have to protect younger players.

    So while other teams were losing good players, and making costly deals to avoid losing good players, the Oilers gave up a guy who isn't even an NHL player. So unfair.

    The Oilers stunk. The Canadiens stunk. Vancouver stunk. Ottawa stunk. The Leafs were beat in round one by a better team. Winnipeg is still in it, and look pretty good against last year's finalist.

    You're right. So often the first round is the best one, but not this season.

    Great to see Vegas win it tonight. On to the conference final. Vegas has a very good team and I think they also have Vegas Lady Luck riding along with them. Congratulations to them and their fans. Hoping it will be them and the Jets next round.

    The game isn't rigged? Maybe not so much during the regular season but try telling that to Oilers fans during last years Ducks/Oilers playoff run.

    But we beat up that horse here last year.

    You mean the current round? Game #6 is today. I suspect this round (Jets/Preds) will go 7 games. The Pressure is on Nashville to pull a come from behind or their done. The odds are against Nashville this evening but never say never.

    Ah, I believe I said something like "I'd like to see Jets/Pens in the finale.

    So the jets are down 3 zip with a few minutes left. A lot of sad whites in the arena. If this is their best then they're done. Likely Preds vs Vegas.

    Slim? not likely. It's a game 7. Jets will expose Nashville's poor D in the D zone. Nashville has all the pressure. Jets win. Buff and Wheeler will step up.

    This is my busy time of year so I don't get too watch a lot of the games but did I see this properly, Washington ousted the Pens?

    If Winnipeg wins and goes on to the final I would be happy, but also like Vegas so either way I'll be happy. Hoping for Canada's team first though.

    Any Canadian team over a US team, imo. I never got on the Vegas (Cinderella team) bandwagon.
