And so it still goes... win 1, lose 1.  That should mean the Rangers win game 7, but I'm not so confident.  They played like they weren't together yesterday.  Not one player gets down by Holtby in case of a rebound to score on.  Just look at how the Caps position themselves around Henrick.  >:(  Do I need to go to the Garden on Saturday and offer some coaching advise?

If you could be less of an embarassement than Totorella is in his post-game moments, I'm sure you'd be a breath of fresh air.

I love when Torts tells reporters to stop coaching. I always thought he and the New York media would be a bad combination, but as long as they keep winning he can do what those of us who have to deal with the press would love to do and tell them to buzz off when they try and stir the pot.
     He also tries to deflect attention from the players loss by making the story about him when they lose. I really don't think it is ego, he believes that keeps the pressure off the locker room.
     Nothing beats his "Shut your Yap" tirade to the Philly coaches in 04.

Yawn.  At least games 1 and 2 were close...  I really thought the Devils would put up more of a fight.  :(

I expected 6 games, which it still could go that way, but it's not looking it after tonight.  Sometimes a hit like that sparks a team to win one or two though.  I'm sticking with 6...  I honestly thought Brodeur might collapse.  Goaltender is rough, and I figured his age may catch up to him, but I'm shocked honestly.  Dude's gotta be in awesome shape for any age, much less his.

It's not been the most interesting series though, even the close games.  I've only been watching in bits.

6 isn't out of the question now.

On a side note, has anyone else noticed the hot blond behind the Devils' bench? Wowza.

Congrats to the Kings and their fans.  No, really. 

The burning question though is why is no one mocking Philadelphia mercilessly?  Hello?  Carter?  Richards?  Turfed.  Bad team environment.  Yeah, about that....

Oh, people are.

Congrats to the Kings, and wow, I wish I'd put something on this.  :-\

Scuderi's the man by the way.  Loved him when he was here, and hated to see him leave.  He was a classy guy here, really respectful and a fan-fav.  I liked Sykora too though, but I was pulling for Scuderi.

Congrats to the Kings. It was a fun series to watch. Too bad so much of tonight's game came down to that 5 minute major. There sure was some great goaltending in the series.

Yep, congrats to the Kings.

Always nice to see a franchise get its first championship, as long as it's not the Philadelphia Eagles.
