  2. Caps are starting Varlamov, a rookie whom they called up from the minors. This could get interesting.

  3. Callahan scores and the Rangers lead 1-0!

  4. "I pulled my groin 7 times watching that." - Darren Pang on the Fleury save on Jeff Carter's shot. This was during pre-game.

  5. HA! I actually heard that during the pregame but I did not have the thread up at the time and by the time I did get it up, I forgot about it.

  10. Rangers take Game 2, 1-0 and they now lead the series 2-0 over the Capitals as they head to Madison Square Garden for games 3 and 4. Wow...I did not see this one coming.

  15. RAFALSKI SCORES! 1-0 RED WINGS!

    ReplyDelete
  16. PAVEL DATSYUK SCORES! 2-0 Red Wings in the 2nd.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow, a Columbus Blue Jacket was carrying a hockey stick in each hand for well over 5 seconds and the Red Wings announcers were livid over it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. "Last night the Red Wings led 1-0 and the Blue Jackets came back and tied it at 1." - Mickey Redmond forgetting that Game 1 was 2 nights ago, not last night.

    ReplyDelete
  19. "We'll clear up a stick story when we come back." - Ken Daniels

    Eww.

    ReplyDelete
  20. ZETTERBERG TOP SHELFS IT AND IT'S 3-0 WINGS!

    8:00 and Habs-Bruins can't come soon enough. Actually scratch that, my options of PbP announcers to watch are Jack Edward on NESN, Joe Beninati on Versus, and Bob Cole on CBC. I know a good deal of French, so maybe I'll find an RDS stream....

    ReplyDelete
  21. It's Beninati for me! And an only iffy quality stream.

    ReplyDelete
  22. SAVARD SCORES A POWER PLAY GOAL! 1-0 BOSTON!

    ReplyDelete
  23. "Game 2 of the California Clash." - Joe Beninati on the Sharks-Ducks series.

    Nice alliteration.....

    ReplyDelete
  24. "Wrap around for Kostitsin and he gave Montador a rough run." - Joe Beninati

    ReplyDelete
  25. "The Black and Blue Jackets." - Joe Beninati

    Ugh.

    BOSTON SCORES!!! CHUCK KOBASEW BANGED IT HOME AND IT'S 2-0 BRUINS!

    ReplyDelete
  26. At least 1 team in Boston isn't disappointing.

    ReplyDelete
  27. "Highway robbery here." - Greg Millen on the great save by Price

    ReplyDelete
  28. "Looked like a little roller derby move there by Tim Thomas." - Joe Beninati

    WHAT?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  29. "Price will melt that one in the crease." - Joe Beninati being overdescriptive.

    ReplyDelete
  30. One of the TSN studio analysts just said that Darren Pang was in New York.

    Panger is (or as of earlier this afternoon) in Washington....

    ReplyDelete
  31. And it's a final in Detroit. 4-0 Red Wings.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I have 2 streams going right now, one of Habs-Bruins and another of Flames and Blackhawks and while I am listening to the national anthems in Chicago, I flip back to the Habs-Bruins game to find out that the Habs have pulled within 1!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm not sure Cole knew there was a goal scored.

    He sounded so surprised just now and had no goal call.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It was not really that much of a chaotic play. Just a solid drive that went in.

    Old King Cole might need to have his vision checked...

    ReplyDelete
  35. 4-1 Boston. Good thing that I'm watching the Flames-Blackhawks game.

    ReplyDelete
  36. JEROME IGINLA SCORES ON THE POWER PLAY! 1-0 CALGARY!

    That was about as juicy a rebound as you can ever find in the NHL.

    ReplyDelete
  37. "They're going after him because he has loose lips right now." - Pierre McGuire

    ReplyDelete
  38. "We may have to call security in front of the net again." - Chris Cuthbert on a scrum that broke out in front of the net.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Game over.

    5-1 Boston at the end of 2. Blowout.

    ReplyDelete
  40. OH! AUCOIN GETS A REBOUND AND SENDS IT RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE NET BUT A BLACKHAWK STICK KNOCKED IT IN FOR THE FLAMES! 2-0 CALGARY!

    Meanwhile, the Bruins have advanced there lead to 5-1 over the Montreal. And Jack Edwards may end up back in the hospital for pulling a Brennaman...

    ReplyDelete
  41. SCORE! CHICAGO! TOEWS!! And the Blackhawks have pulled within 1.

    ReplyDelete
  42. "Everybody wants to say 'hello' to Pierre McGuire." - Chris Cuthbert as a scrum broke out in front of the benches right where Pierre is.

    ReplyDelete
  43. PATRICK KANE TIES IT AT 2!!! BEAUTIFUL GOAL!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oof. I was on the phone and I missed a Chicago goal at the end of the 2nd. 3-2 Blackhawks after they trailed 2-0 to start the game.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Meanwhile, it's a final in Boston. 5-1 the Bruins beat the Canadiens and Jack Edwards is being rushed to the hospital. It is pretty close to being 4 hours...

    ReplyDelete
  46. "The good news if you're Calgary is you're starting to get rubber on Khabibulin. The bad news is is you're running out of race track." - Pierre McGuire

    This has been a really good game. Very entertaining and very fun to watch.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Chicago hangs on and wins a very entertaining 3-2 hockey game from the United Center.
