Wow! The Jets are an amazing team! They can take on two other teams at the same time.

If WPG/MTL wins the North, the East winner will be the #3 seed in the semis; if TOR wins the North, the East winner will be the #4 seed in the semis.

I can imagine the argument was made that Graves made contact with Jannmark’s body and head simultaneously, but there’s no way that’s a hit they should want in this league. Graves was late and aimed high. Should be 5.

EDIT: To add the fact that it was also a blindsided hit. Late, high and to an unsuspecting player. Graves apparently in possession of Craig Berube’s unofficial playbook.

It was about three seconds too late. You don’t get the benefit of the doubt on whether he got hit on the head when it’s that late.

I don’t know what Reaves did to Graves at the bottoms of that pile but Graves isn’t moving much and Reaves is done for the night.

Reaves is choking him out there. After cross checking the goalie in the head. He should be done for the series.

None of this happens if the ref gives Graves 5 and the game. They completely botched it.
I can’t help but thinking this. A 2-minute penalty for that his is just outrageous. A 5 or a 2 and 10 and the message is sent.

It’s Kelly Sutherland, folks. There’s an established pattern. StL concussed at least 4 Sharks and 4 Bruins and Sutherland just swallowed the whistle on their behalf, letting them Clockwork Orange their way through the latter part of the finals and gifting them game 5 on a platter.

Really stupid decision to start Lehner. The only good reason to start him tonight is if Fleury isn't 100% healthy.
Which makes you wonder why Fleury was on the bench. Starting Lehner in Game 7 would have been somewhat understandable. Tonight, not so much. Boucher's comment about him playing like the game moved too fast for him was spot on.

On a side note, peak MacKinnon is just as talented and exciting as peak McDavid.

Watching TSN last night and this morning was like a state funeral. If only they gave the Raptors as much attention when they were winning a title.

More likely it’s 50% rust (first game in 9 days), 50% Winnipeg’s D being Josh Morrisey and 5 pylons. We can LOL Leafs all we want, but who doesn’t prefer Reilly, Muzzin, and Brodie over Morrisey, Pionk, and Forbort?
