I remember watching the Caps two 4OT games. The second of those, the "Petr Nedved game," was at the time the third-longest game in NHL history. Now it's the sixth-longest, as last night's game was about 31 seconds longer. We turned it off after the first overtime. Glad we didn't try to stay up. I wouldn't have been able to stay awake anyway.

My comment further up the thread about the 1987 game against the Islanders being the 11th-longest game was correct when I made it three days ago, but now it's the 12th-longest. What's interesting about all these long games in recent history is that the 1987 game was the first game since 1971 to go to a third overtime and the first since 1951 to go to a fourth. So there have been a good number of 4OT games (and three 5OT games) in the years since 1987 after there having been none for some 36 years.
I watched the Flyers beat the Penguins in the 5OT game.  2000 something. Primary scored. Got about 3 hours sleep before work in the morning.

2000 actually. Third longest ever. Last night is 6th.

I'm glad that I got confused about when Game 1 was...I had a 7 am meeting today and would have been escruda had I known it was on (I have no self control when it comes to turning off OT games).

Former Cap does it for Vegas.  My teams have lost all four OTs.  But still entertaining.

Bob is really playing great. Good to see after so many years where he struggled in the playoffs.

Expected goals per game from Natural Stat Trick.

Game 3: Carolina 2.62. Florida 0.75
Game 2:  Carolina 3.28. Florida 2.31
Game 1: Carolina 5.04. Florida 4.72.

Yep the goalie stole this series for the Miami team.

Absolutely disgusting. He should be suspended for the rest of the playoffs and into next season.

Domi should have gotten a game misconduct.  Teams off the ice after Dallas fans pelt the ice with trash.

Pelted the ice with bottles and trash after the scrum at the end of the 2nd period (Domi did get a game misconduct for attacking a VGK player). The refs had to take the teams off the ice with 21 seconds left and add it to the start of the 3rd period.  Then they dumped food on the Knights players as they returned to the ice for the start of the third.  By the end of the game, the stands were largely emptied.

Hopefully Vegas shuts them out again in Game 4. I assume that Benn gets at least a 1 game suspension for trying to end Stone's career. Domi may get a suspension as well for going after Hague. He cross-checked him into the boards then started to punch Hague.

They really look like a team of destiny. Must have a boatload of good luck charms.
