Yeah no way they are winning 4 out of next 5 games against the Penguins.

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

Nashville's politely fucked now. They would have to reel off 2 in a row to even have a whisper of a shot in this finals.

You know, the Preds look like the team to beat for 75% of the each game - then in 3-10 minutes, the doors fall off. It is one of the oddest things I have seen in hockey. This spoken from a guy who somewhat pays attention to the last third of the season and the playoffs and catch a few playoff games here and there.

That's the craziest thing about this finals thus far -- Predators have looked good, especially in 1st 10-20 minutes. Then Pens get a 3-10 minute stretch, like you write, and the game is just flipped. 

But then Pens have more finishers like Malkin, Crosby, and now a rookie sensation Guentzel that might eclipse Dino Cicarelli playoff rookie scoring record. And Murray looks up to the task in net.

P.K. Subban guarantees Predator game 3 victory!

It also helps when you get a vast majority of the lucky bounce goals.

Penguins repeat, woo!

Didn't get to watch it live, sadly.  How bad was the Nashville goal that got called back in the second?

Egregiously bad. Puck was sitting alone in a wide open crease yet somehow the ref managed to lose sight of it and blew it dead a second before it was tapped in.

In other words; par for the course.

It happens...Murray was interfered with on that play anyway, probably wouldn't of counted. Nashville was shutout 2 games in a row, crying about the refs is ridiculous when they got all the penalties in their favour.

No fucking way that was interference. Murray wasn't prevented from making a play on the puck, because he had no idea that he didn't have it frozen. Horrendous call. And then to have the Cup-winning goal end up being a janky carom off the back-boards? Sad.

Pens definitely had the puck luck on their side, as several critical goals throughout the series were either crazy deflections or just unreal shots they couldn't replicate even if they tried.

But hey, I'll give them more credit for this win than perhaps in past years - they accomplished this one largely through good drafting of guys like Kuhnhackl.

Wasn't janky, he took a very nice swing at the mid-air puck, and he knocked it off Rinne's back on purpose. I wouldn't say all the bounces went for the Pens either, look at that one Crosby ripped at the end of the first that was going in but went off the shaft at the top of Rinne's stick.

The carom was janky, not the swat.

The expansion protection list was released today.  Vegas is going to have some nice players to choose from which should make them much more competitive right from the start.  Some of the players protected are kind of head scratchers (like Andrew Cogliano and Jimmy Howard) but they may have no move clauses in their contracts that they weren't willing to waive so their teams had to put them on the protected list.  I know Ottawa asked Dion Phaneuf to waive his so they could protect Marc Methot but he refused.

They shoulda left unrestricted free agents off that list...clutters it. Doubt Vegas takes Mrazek anyway, they have better options. But yeah they will be getting a player of some value from basically every team.

Islanders only protecting 3 forwards, some decent players available. They will probably take Plekanec from Montreal, then flip him for a 1st next February at deadline. Nobody else really has any value except as a 4th liner or 3rd pairing (you still need good players there, but they aren't worth a 1st).

If George McPhee is smart then he knows none of the guys he's drafting are part of any long-term plans.  But he can exploit GMs that may overvalue their own assets and scoop up some free picks along the way.

George, forget about Methot, he's old & expensive. Draft that Borowiecki kid; he leads the league in hits!  why so serious?

Hey Flames, if Curtis Lazar is protected, you may have a depth problem up front.

Schenn returning 2 first round picks is good news for the Canadiens trying to move Galchenyuk.
