Big win by my Rangers last night to advance. Congrats to Edmonton also. Nice to see the Blues in too.

Two big games today. They will be fun to watch.

Love the Stanley Cup playoffs. Always surprising.

Mike

Although I had the CDN's in my pool, I am not disappointed they are out.

Happy to see St. Louis and the Oilers advance, too!

Hope the Leafs and Ottawa can get it done today as well, but I have more faith in Ottawa than I do the Leafs, unfortunately.

Just so you know, Ottawa and Boston is a 3pm ET start and the Leafs/Caps are at 7.

And then there were eight.

Not trying to single out the Boston fans as there's unruly behavior in way too many places in sports today, but it was sad to see the ice littered with rubbish after the Senators OT victory yesterday.

The tension will ratchet up another notch in this next round.

As a Ranger fan I'm hoping Brassard doesn't come back to haunt us, and that we can somehow control that amazing defenseman they've got.

The Capitals/Penguins series should be a real barn burner.

Good luck to everybody still in the hunt.

I'm looking forward to the next round and hope to see the Oilers and Sens prevail, even though it will not be easy!

I am confused on Carlson coming out and talking about the hairline fractures in his foot? That foot/his feet will now be a bigtime target!

I despise Kelser from Anaheim. He will give McDavid fits so hopefully Lucic, or McDavid himself, takes care of him early in the series! He is not well liked, even by his teammates, anywhere in the NHL.

I like the Penns over the Caps, but agree, it should be a great series, hopefully?

St. Louis and the Preds is going to be a goal tenders dual, provided both still stay hot after the first round?
I like the Preds, especially that new(er) kid Fiala. Him and cous, (wife's side) James Neal, have been working well together lately!

Surprised the NHL scheduled this round without an east/west doubleheader option. Sens/Rangers and Pens/Caps going head to head instead of an eastern game and then a later starting game from the west. Oh well, what do I know.

Also pulling (hard) for Edmonton. Fingers crossed for the Rangers, although this Karllson guy terrifies me. No love lost from me for the Caps or Pens, but it should be a humdinger.

Game 1 of Nashville/St. Louis in 15 minutes. Let's play some hockey!

I'd say a broken leg for Fiala. It did not look good at all. Stretcher, Dr's, trnr's, he is done for the season now which will really hurt the Preds, imo.

Yeah, that was a nasty bad angle collision with the boards for the Nashville kid. Was surprised to see them moving his leg like they did, but it must not have been the knee but the leg as you suggested.

Meanwhile, what's with an NHL playoff game, national audience and all, and they have to delay the restart because there isn't a backup ambulance/emt crew at the arena???? The local high school football games around here have two ambulances on hand! When you're out the better part of $50 bucks for two beers and two hot dogs in what these leagues claim are world class venues there has to be more attention to detail no?

Might try the picture in picture tonight for the Eastern Conference games.

Go Rangers!

That was a nasty collision and Fiala will now be out the remainder of the playoffs with a fractured femur. Surprised he was even moving his leg. http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/p...-broken-femur/

That is tough for Fiala and the Preds.

Also tough was that loss for my Blues last night. Battled back from 3-1 to tie it up and then give up a pretty bad goal with just under 5:00 left in the 3rd. Like the way they came back though and this is going to be a long series.

Tough loss for the Blues and at the same time a tough loss for the Preds losing Fiala. That was a nasty ride into the boards. I hate to see a young player suffer a horrific injury like that. I hope he can bounce back from it!
