Thank God I can watch the Leafs on CBC rather than the always crappy NBC Sports Network. I have Spectrum and can watch it on their streaming channel in HD. For some reason,CBC on their cable box/DVR is in SD.

Grubauer to start in net for Washington in game 1. Guess he's been outplaying Holtby?

Stifling defense from Vegas. LA couldn't really get anything going all night.

What an embarrassment last night. It doesn't matter because the Penguins are light years better then us as they won all 4 games in the regular season. The only way we had any shot of winning this series is if we got hot goaltending and we steal a game or two. Right now are goaltending is abysmal and this thing will probably be over in 5 games.

What a cool game it was. So hard fought and gritty. Going to a regular season game is cool enough, but this Playoff hockey is a completely different environment. And their ticket plan clearly worked -- there were probably under 100 Kings fans in the whole arena (when I saw the Kings in the regular season, it was almost 50-50).

They got us all chanting "Beat L.A." which, after spending my entire adult life rolling my eyes and chuckling every time I hear that chant, felt pretty weird I must admit.


Fun Playoff Fact : Vegas (1 Season) and Los Angeles (51 Seasons) have each won their division title the same number of times - once.

Great shot from Panarin to win it in OT.

That was a textbook Caps playoff effort. Quick 2-0 lead. Can't score on a 5-minute PP at the end 1st/beginning 2nd to make it 3-0. Blow the 2-0 lead. Get the 3rd period go-ahead tease goal. Leading late....commit one of the stupidest penalties you'll ever see and promptly give up the tying PP goal. Then fall in OT. That's the Caps script to the letter.

I'm a casual hockey fan. I usually just watch the Preds play, but this goal by Forsberg is one of the best that I have ever seen.

I just got a high five from Brent Musburger, who was also decked out in Knights gear, at the NY NY. I am going to take that as a good omen for tonight.

Re: NHL 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

The clock in the arena stopped at 19:55 in the first. It's super frustrating not knowing the game time is.

The Bruins are a very good team, and they're healthy--but man, Toronto has looked terrible in both games so far.

Pastrnak had an amazing game. That last goal was pretty lucky though since he didn't get under it as much as he should have. We'll see how things go once it moves to Air Canada Centre.

Patrik Laine rips a game-tying laser, Sidney Crosby shows off more hand-eye amazingness en route to a hat trick and the Golden Knights make history to highlight an electrifying night of action to kick off the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs!


Filip Forsberg makes an unbelievable deke to collect his second goal, Artemi Panarin races in for a dramatic overtime winner and Sean Kuraly bats home a terrific goal to headline a thrilling second night of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Erik Haula caps a long night of action with a dramatic double overtime winner for the Golden Knights while Tyler Myers dances by defenders to tally in an exciting night of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs.


David Pastrnak's remarkable six-point game, Ryan Johansen's breakaway goal and Tomas Hertl's excellent backhand headline the best from Saturday's playoff action.

Big victory by the Knights at Staples for a 3-0 series lead. I might not even be using my Game 5 tickets at this rate.
