It appears I got the lawn done just in time. Looking forward to more high pace games today. It might be the most notable difference from watching the Wings all year.

Sportsnet picking up NBC feed, even the studio feed.

Doing the game for NBC is Brendan Burke, Keith Jones and A.J. Mleczko.

Ha, waiting for bigfrog’s response.

Steeb, they just have one commercial, during the ice scrape which happens at first stoppage after 10 minute mark.

Palmieri puts the puck past the penguins.

That was a win-win situation. The Pens lose and AJ is silenced until the next Pens-Isles game. Now I can watch without having one finger on the mute button.

Ha, waiting for bigfrog’s response.

He’ll be too busy celebrating for the next hour or so.  grin

AJ is a regular on NYI broadcasts on MSG Networks and does a great job.  Working for the PEN-BC TV Network - she was required to bow to Cindy Crosby and keep in mind - the Pens are an “Original Seven” team and Bettman’s dream playoff Cup final is Pittsburgh vs. Pittsburgh

1 down 15 more to go!

Well, watched pretty much 3 games so far and not much between those six teams.  Great playoff hockey, up and down.  I believe that playing division only has produced this closeness. If a team could employ some other division tactics it may tip the balance.  It may be a difference when they crossover divisions.  This may be the overtime year!!!

I see NBC picked yet another winning duo to call the Lightning-Panther game…

What are the odds that Gudas does something really ugly in this game tonight ????  confused

Granted, 2 minutes for the hit o Duclair, but he did sell it a bit with the head bob.

This is going to be a fun game to watch.

Love to see the Island go deep.

Would also like to see Vegas win it all for Fluery…so he can give the big FU to Pittsburgh.

That game was a dream come true. LOL Of Course NBC had to interview Crybaby between periods, but he lost in the end. grin

These refs have completely lost control of this game….a lot of nasty stuff going on behind the play, and scrums after every whistle…

rangers could use a veteran presence like Zuccarello, they should’ve treated him better, he was a real force today.

I always thought they made a mistake letting cam Talbot go and keeping lundqvist. it’s only one game, but imo, he’s fully capable of stealing a series.

saw some negative comments previously on the boards about nbc’s pierre mcguire, show me a more knowledgeable color man – this guy knows his stuff.
