No updates from me tonight unless something major happens.

I will be in a very relaxed mode tonight.

What a horrible ending to the game. I’ve seen too many bad calls in this years playoffs. You could almost make a case that the NHL is trying to keep the small market teams from advancing in the playoffs.

79.1 Hand Pass - A player shall be permitted to stop or “bat” a puck in the air with his open hand, or push it along the ice with his hand, and the play shall not be stopped unless, in the opinion of the Referee, he has directed the puck to a teammate.
  A player shall be permitted to catch the puck out of the air but must immediately place it or knock it down to the ice. If he catches it and skates with it, either to avoid a check or to gain a territorial advantage over his opponent, a minor penalty shall be assessed for “closing his hand on the puck” under Rule 67 - Handling Puck.

I’m headed to Vegas at the end of May to play in the WSOP Big 50.  I can only hope to get as lucky as the Sharks have this post-season.  Unbelievable.

That’s unreal! Third terrible call going the Sharks way at a critical time in a game. I hope the Blues win the next three, Sharks don’t deserve to be where they are right now.

I 100% want the Sharks to win this series and the Cup, esp if they play Boston (or whoever plays Boston to win, any given day). That was totally a hand pass. Looked like the Sharks players even knew it for a second, then celebrated when nobody waved it off, since it’s not a reviewable thing (and thank Jah for that).

Almost, because Carolina didn beat Washington, the cup champs, then a New York team, to make it this far.

Columbus actually won a round.

And Canada fails again with Toronto, Winnipeg, and Calgary.

Nah, brah
