    Never look past your first round opponent. They just might beat your a$$.

    The sooner I see Crosby crying his way out of the playoffs the better!

    Also, screw the Western conference, 10:30 start time the night before 3 exams...
    GO WINGS!

    I don't think ****ney Crosby's back yet but yes. The Penguins must go.

    And what's these Wings you speak of?!?!

    I'm so embarrassed to even be a part of a sport where good hits get punished solely because a big name pansy gets his head knocked around a few times...

    2 games for a clean hit that the ref right there didn't call?? I get pissed when my partner ON THE ICE calls something that I had a better view on much less some moron in an office in Toronto...

    Nope, not sour at all here, but I do think the Wings are cooked now.

    FIRE BETTMANN!

    That is all, Rant over.

    It's time for me to just start cheering against the Pens and Hawks, and pray that SOMEONE has their way with Corey Cheapshot Perry before this series is over.

    Mark, the Abdelkadur hit was dirty as sin. He left his feet with his elbows up. That was clear as day bro. The Gryba hit on Lars Eller, while violent as I've ever seen with a gigantic pool of blood left behind looked to me as clean. Kid just got caught with his head down and paid for it. But yeah, the hit in Detroit was very questionable. That was an o-zone penalty too. Stupid.

    I'm gonna call shens on Abby's hit for 3 reasons (and this is coming from a ref):

    1. Stopped skating a considerable distance away (#1 criteria for charging)

    2. Did not leave his feet until after the initial contact (#2 criteria)-This is one of the things people don't realize about Kronwall's hits either, when you collide that fast, sometimes the energy is directed up providing the illusion that one was to jump prior to impact. We're taught to "explode" upwards into the hit to knock the opponent off the puck for a better chance of knocking the stick off the biscut, that doesn't mean jumping though.

    3. Did not clearly target the head, as glancing shoulder contact was the initial and intended point of contact.

    4. Player had his head down and wasn't paying full attention, while the onus is generally on the player making the hit, he cannot be punished for the fact that the player he is hitting is not watching where he is on the ice. There's no rule against blindsiding an opponent UNLESS they're hit directly or diagonally from behind, which was not the case here.

    5. The "dirty" elbow extension was a factor of the collision rather than how he went in to the hit. Trust me, if his goal was to separate Lydman from his helmet/consciousness it would have been VERY easy to adjust his direction and extend the elbow.

    There's a reason the guy wearing orange black and white 5 feet away didn't call it. If the Duck's player got right up, it isn't called at all or even looked at, much less a 5+Game and 2 game suspension in the playoffs. Yep, we're talking about playoffs. One of the replays they showed from a different angle showed things the way Steve Kozari did, and I completely agree and back his initial no call 100%.

    With all the cheap crap they ignore and let go, it's an absolute travesty to the game of hockey that good hard plays get called like this. It sends the wrong message to say the least.

    For the record, I'd be saying the same thing even if it was a Detroit guy who got lined up like that.

    That Eller hit was one of the scariest I've ever seen as far as the aftermath goes. The ice looked like an old Avs Wings game from the 90s after that one...

    As our FSDetroit color guy says (and all my coaches): That's why you keep your head up folks.

    As for another topic, am I the only one wishing Crosby takes puck right between the gap between his visor and jaw cage that bounces around in there a few times? It makes him look like an even bigger crybaby than normal, and frankly, as someone who has taken a slapshot to the jaw, I was appalled by the distance the stick traveled when he threw it after he got drilled a few months back.

    It's time I eat my yearly plate of crow! Congrats to the Rangers for sure and more so to Lundqvist who deserves every award he gets. Awesome goalie and classy always. I do hope to see him win a cup in his career. Good luck guys.
