    My gut says they beat the Pens, leaving the potential for the revival of my white hot hate of Holtby if the Bruins beat Tampa.

    I just fucking hate that guy. He gets irrationally under my skin.

    The Caps may come to regret all the wide open nets they have missed in this game.

    Ever since he came out of fucking nowhere as the back up to the back up and stood on his head to stone the Bruins, I've hated him with the fire of 10,000 suns.

    And I'm all for firing him into the sun.

    Fuck that guy.

    Holtby turning back into a pumpkin. 3 straight goals for the Pens to take the lead, 3-2.

    Yup, saw the stick near his face and whipped his head back. Refs completely bought it.

    I hate both these teams.

    It hit the top of his visor/helmet and he sold it. I'm not sure either penalty in that sequence was a penalty.

    Nice win.

    Caps blew that, but the Penguins are so tough because they know they’re the baddest team in hockey right now. They don’t fear a goddamn thing, certainly not the Caps.

    Review ongoing for Vrana's goal to make it 2-0

    Good goal. I think that's the right call, Connolly swiped Murray's pad but it was a couple of seconds before Vrana scored.

    I'm shocked Tom Wilson takes another cheap shot at someone. So unlike him.

    Yeah, I have no love for the Penguins, but the list of people in sports that I dislike more than Tom Wilson is exceptionally short.

    If I didn't have this game on my 3rd TV, I would definitely be shutting it off in frustration. That's nonsense. Just get the calls right!

    Watching that makes me angry. The zoomed in still shot is almost conclusive - but what makes it conclusive is that the frame(s) before show it being pulled forward. So it had to have come from where it was a goal. Ugh.

    The second part is that basic technology and a little bit of software would make that determination a no brainer. Double ugh.

    I want a 7 game series just so they (edit: the winner) have no rest going into the next round, but Pittsburgh got screwed there.

    No hearing for Tom Wilson even though Dumoulin was the second guy he's concussed just in these playoffs with a headshot.

    I'm not sure Wilson had much of a choice there though. This happened so fast and Dumoulin turned back into him. Wilson might be a bad dude, but is he really culpable here?

    Wilson is a piece of shit who I'm up for suspending on principle...but Dumoulin stepped back into him there. Really unfortunate and most likely not intentional.

    Both goalies being severely tested and somehow no goals yet.

    Pens are already giving Wilson a rough ride - wouldn't surprise me to see fisticuffs later in the game involving him - these teams have a more than healthy dislike of each other before this series even started...

    This game is scoreless through one, but should be like 4-3. These are two high scoring power play units, and there were 5 penalties in the 1st, yet no goals. Number of crazy saves/posts/pucks trickling through goalies just wide etc...
