The final game(s) is going to be much different if both Towes and Bergeron are out.  Although Towes hasn't been producing like he did in the regular season, he's still the anchor of the top line and forces other teams to keep some focus on him.  I don't know much about Bergeron, but from everything I've read online today, whether they were quotes from players or journalist's opinions in Boston, it sounds like he's their best player and will sorely be missed.

It's been a great series thus far, so I don't expect anything less going into tomorrow night (and possibly Wednesday  ;)  )

I thought it was a 400% Boba and 1000% Vader.  They made the 400% Vader a year or more ago, so it has to be a 1000%, otherwise what's the point of putting it in the show.  They've never done a 400% Boba Be@r, so I'd be surprised if they started rght off the bat with a 1000% and bipassed the 400%.

I don't think I can take much more of this...  Crazy game tonight; could have gone either way.  Could have easily seen this heading back to Chicago with Boston up 3-1.  This has definitely been an entertaining and stressful series thus far.

There were about 5 or 6 times where Crawford was on his ass flailing around and Boston couldn't score... the Bruins probably should have come away with a win there - but I'm glad it worked out how it did.

I was watching the local post-game afterward and one of the reports asked Crawford, "Do you ever think to yourself while you're playing 'How did that shot not go in?!'"  I was actually surprised at his composure in answering the question, considering he had to be exhausted, but he basically came back with, 'I don't let doubt enter into my mind when I'm out there.'  This is much different from the Crawford from last year's playoffs.  Last year, he would have been done after that second or third goal.  He's definitely a much more confident player this year and is probably the main reason why the Hawks have done as well as they have this post season.

I believe the Blackhawks can win, they just need to get some scoring from all their lines like they did during the regular season.  Hoping this one doesn't end in a sweep of the Blackhawks like the Bruins did to the Pens.

Scoring from Shaw, Bolland, Saad, Oduya.  Other lines contributing - check
Hawks up 1-0.  No sweep - check

Holy crap that was exciting to watch!  It's hard not to be biased in the review, but I thought the Hawks did a better job in regulation (almost 2-1 SOG) and the Bruins dominated the OT's.  That was definitely one that could have gone either way, and appeared as though it was going to go Boston's way twice on those two post shots in OT.  I was surprised that the Hawks came out hitting; that is definitely not their game. I think it showed too as they went down early and had to fight back just to tie it up.

I'm really looking forward to the rest of this series (although I'm still nervous about the Hawks chances).  I think that the teams were evenly matched in most of the stats yesterday, so this series is probably going to come down to the lucky deflections off posts, skates and legs...

Any of you Boston fans know what happened to Horton?  From the replays it looked like he hurt himself pushing one of the Hawks and not due to a hit.  Pierre was also speculating that he was playing with an upper body injury.

Really getting nervous for this series.  I believe the Blackhawks can win, they just need to get some scoring from all their lines like they did during the regular season.  Hoping this one doesn't end in a sweep of the Blackhawks like the Bruins did to the Pens.  However, if the Bruins do end up winning, then they will have beaten both Division favorites to do it.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

UGH.  So let me get this straight, he has enough money to ride around in a 'luxury BMW' and live in a gated community, but he has to go picking through public ashtrays...

Why do I have a bad feeling that he's going to get cast in the movie and then half way through production, Disney is going to catch wind of some of these sorts of things and pull the plug on him.  Then the story will get rewritten for the n-th time, they'll have to reshoot the scenes he was in, and EP VII won't see the light of day for a year after they were planning on it...

That swagger is what has me worried.  The Wild seemed to have their way with the Blackhawks as far as hits were concerned, and Detroit is only going to be hitting harder.  Although Chicago swept them during the regular series, I could easily see this one going 6 or 7.

At this point in time, I'd be elated for the series to make it to a Game 6.  The Hawks top line needs to step it up if they are going to end up winning the series.  They got away with mediocre performance during the Wild series, but it is costing them right now.  Oh, and Howard has had two great back-to-back performances in net for the Wings.  You don't know how hard it is for me to type that compliment...

Well, not at all what I thought the series was going to look like but I'll definitely take it.  Coming back from 3-1 to win the series was huge.  The way Detroit came out in the 3rd tonight had me really nervous that they were goign to take it in regulation.  Can't believe the call near the end of the game against Saad though.  He got tossed into the Detroit bench, body slammed to the ice and because he puts a glove in the guy's face, HE gets a co-incidental roughing penalty that negates a goal?!  Thankfully they were able to come out and get it done in OT, even after Detroit put up some pretty good chances in the first few minutes.

Bring on the Kings!  Going to be a great goalie match-up with the #1 and #2 GAA leaders facing off.  Not happy that they play back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday to start things off though...

Hey Jim, from what I can remember when I was trying to build my collection, some of the NJO books that were only released in HC through the SFBC were pulling in some good money (Traitor was typically selling for around $100).  Also, anything that was a 3-in-1 like the Bounty Hunter Chronicles, etc.  Other than that, unless it was a first edition or rare HC (only through SFBC), I remember them being pretty average.  Good luck!

It's kind of funny that you started this thread because my wife has been getting on me to get rid of my HC and TPB collections.  I keep holding on, but eventually I think it's a losing battle.

Yeah, that Detroit swagger is in full effect.  I don't think Harding/Kuemper get that "Goalie Interference" call last night.  That no goal call was pretty bogus, seemed like a make-up for the boarding in the other end.  That no goal call was killer to you guys last night as it gave the Red Wings a total momentum swing.

Totally agree.  That was a crap call, especially since Shaw was knocked down prior to the shot and had two guys on top of him when the puck went into the net.

They really need to get their heads out of their pads if they are going to win another game.  If it's not the underperformance of their top line, then it's the turnovers that are leading to additional chances for Detroit.  I know that Crawford is taking some heat for his GAA going up in the last two games, but what I think gets lost is how many times he's been put into bad positions and ends up pulling saves out of nowhere.  They can't keep asking him to stand on his head game after game...

And to the Red Wings for taking care of business.  They may not be as powerful as past Wing teams, but they've still got a bit of that swagger, as well as the new Captain and Datsyuk after all.  Really looking forward to seeing the DET/CHI series.
