Didn't stay up to watch the game but in the highlight reel in the first Sharks goal Getzlaf the Duck captain played really softly and he could have prevented that goal IMO. If the captain lacks attitude it must have some effects on the whole team :dunno: But I'm happy that the Sharks are winning and finfing scoring power from wide range at the moment. Picking up Fehr for almost nothing was fine move. He really got that 4th line going. Anyone got opinion on Burns this year, in the games I have watched this season he's looking slower on his feet than earlier or is it just my imagination?

Haven't really watched many Sharks games this season, but it might be injury or condition-related.

Maybe they try to rely a bit more on the whole def squad instead of him alone.. ?

I've seen plenty of vids here with adblock on. Anyway, that check was nasty yeah. Judging by the other suspensions, he should get 1 or 2 games.

Frank J. Selke Trophy nominees are Patrice Bergeron, Sean Couturier and Anze Kopitar.

Bergeron is always there. Kopitar usually. This year Couturier played Center and was superb. But he played with Giroux and Voracek. It's great, but one has to think about those things also. Like Bergeron with Pastrnak and Marchand.

I'm just missing my countryman Barkov in here. He's super underrated. He's young, and in a "not so famous" team many follows.. But I'm sure he'll get there soon! (as people opens their eyes for this guy). This guy steals pucks from the best of them. :dunno:

PS: Philou; I haven't been able to post a youtube video the last half year or so. Just look in this thread. I stopped posting as it doesn't show. Only shows if I remove the whole adblock from my browser.

I asked several times after those empty posts if someone could see them... no on could. So I stopped. Simple. Not just my adblock it seems.

It breaks my heart a little bit that Winnipeg and Nashville are already meeting in the second round. I really don't like how the playoffs work. That's close to a SC finale this early.

Nice third period between Toronto and Boston yesterday! Toronto has a chance now to win this serie if they're playing like that in game 7.

Nice comeback by the Bruins!

I didn't do any predictions this year though. So far in the first round all the team I expected to make it did it.

Nice first game between Washington and Pittsburgh. Too bad Holtby choked in the first 7 minutes of the third period. :D

Nice win by Winnipeg! Would be fun to see the Caps getting through Pittsburgh.
