I can't believe I have to root against Alex Lyon

Really want to see Edmonton vs Boston. Two best teams in the NHL right now.

Not sure I’ve ever seen a player draw two penalties in less than a minute by blowing past people (including splitting three defenders). McDavid is special.

Herods say "no".  OTs in game 1, love it.

That’s a heartbreaker getting it tied in the last seconds and then losing in OT.  Despite picking them for the Finals they don’t ever seem to have the goaltending. Not really familiar with Skinner.  And any team that has Codi Ceci and the McNabb nephew on D is a risky bet.

I was wondering how you would handle that. All that money they are paying Bob and this dude carries them to the playoffs.

I don't follow this closely, but did he get a shot during their winning streak at the end of the year and is now the hot hand? He let up a real softy to Marchand - a long shot that he didn't catch and had bump off his glove, and the third goal was literally a puck resting on top of his leg pad that Debrusk got a stick on.  Tough call on whether to go back to the #1 guy.

TBH, I think I'd pull for Lyon most other years, but this Bruins team is kind of special in terms of their depth.

First playoffs without either Ovi or Crosby since they entered the league.

it's a real coach's call. 6 goals is a lot, and Swayman is very good. Do you write it off as a one-time event and stick with Ullmark, or do you switch? If you switch and Swayman wins, do you ride Swayman?

i'd think you pay little attention to one game after the season Boston has had. But if he gets lit up in the 1st period of game 3 you obviously make a move.

tbh, I don't follow the Bruins closely, but I think he had a weak playoff last year.

Ok my money ($1) is on the Leafs and Devils to bounce back and win by two goals.
