For the second straight year, my Sharks exit in the second round. I really had high hopes, but maybe next year. Too little, too late.

Good going, Stars. Stick it good to the Red Wings.

Rob, you got your moneys worth.  Awesome game and I love overtime.  I do agree that a short overtime and the shootout is a good thing for the regular season (with some minor complaints) but nothing beats a multiple overtime playoff game  8)  So many memories of drinking so much beer while watching games late into the night.

Yep - it was awesome.  Definitely the longest game I've ever been to (since it was apparently the 8th longest ever?).

With 61 saves, Turco was completely incredible all game long.  It was a beautiful thing to watch.

Nabokov was pretty amazing too for that matter.

Is anyone growing a playoff beard with their team?

Nice...

I like seeing people support their team that much.  Not many folks I know are growing one.  Mine's looking quite sharp if I may say.

Jagr rockin' the Hitler Mustache was a little odd I thought.

I was too...  but mine didn't even last as long as Ryan's did.  :(

Methinks Ed Olczyk is a Flyers fan as of Friday.  Just got a hunch.

No Edzo tonight, which made the game much more palletable on Vs.  Good game too overall.  Brutal checks all game long, and dare I say some of the biggest hits of the post-season thus far (IMO at least).  Highlight reel checking in the opening of the Eastern Finals.

Perhaps if the Stars forfeit the rest of the series, I can avoid the Versus guys till Detroit sweeps whoever they play in the finals...

They are crazy good right now and Dallas looks like a team that has not been in the playoffs this year, much less beating 2 decent teams.

But it was nice to have an early start.  Got to see them lose before 9pm local time.

At least the stars looked competitive tonight.  Maybe they can grab a few wins at home and make a series out of it.

If they don't win on Monday it's definitely over.

Please, Flyers.  Just win one ******* game.  Pretty please.

Honestly, they've had an amazing turnaround and I'm happy for that.  And their core group of players will be around for awhile, so they should be competitive in the years to come. It just seems they get hit with injuries at the most inappropriate time.  Similar to 2004, they lost their top two defenseman and against a team as fast and talented as the Pens, that's trouble. 

I don't have the immense hate of the Pens as some Flyers fans do, so I'll be rooting for them in the finals.  (And no, the Flyers aren't coming back from 0-3.  The Penguins ain't the 2004 New York Yankees).
