New York Rangers 2 Philadelphia Flyers 1

Benoit Pouliot scored the eventual winner as the New York Rangers eliminated the Philadelphia Flyers in seven games. This game featured a Daniel Carcillo goal. I think there is a law stating that you will not win a hockey game if you let Daniel Carcillo score a goal. After the game Steve Mason admitted to having a concussion and said he was suffering headaches the day of game four. Good job Flyers, good job.

Colorado Avalanche 4 Minnesota Wild 5 (OT)

Nino Niederreiter had the game of his playoff life and put up three points in the Wild's come from behind victory. It looks like the Wild lost Darcy Kuemper to a concussion after he got kneed in the head by Ryan Suter. Looks like Mr. Universe, Ilya Bryzgalov will be the Wild's goalie for the near future.

San Jose Sharks 1 Los Angeles Kings 4

You know when a good team gets beaten by a good team? That is what happened here folks. San Jose had some terrible shooting luck in the last four games and lost their top defender in Marc-Edouard Vlasic. This is a terrible collapse by San Jose, but LA is an equally good team, so their comeback is not unexpected.


J.R. Lind wrote the Columbus Blue Jackets Eulogy and it is glorious.

Jessica complied pictures of all 30 NHL rinks. Gorgeous.

E:60 did a profile on Dominic Moore and it is well worth 11 minutes of your life.

Tyler Dellow puts the Sharks collapse in perspective. Losing a series when you lead 3-0 may start to become more common.

Arby thinks that the Jets are stuck in the "loser zone". I tend to agree

Truck dissects who on the Jets has been a good boy and who has been a bad boy. Instant analysis? Bad boy Byfuglien.
