Brooklyn?s Barclays Center Is Dumping the Islanders
- Arena would make more money from concerts, other events
- Islanders attendance is third-worst in NHL this season

No need to panic unless you're the Wild and Bruce is behind your bench.

Bruce is a special level of hell. Smackie and I have been positing this theory since before he took over Smackie's team.

I was more doom and gloom yesterday. Man, I really hate bounces. I hate to think MAN CAPS GET NO BOUNCES, but it is frustrating as hell to see so many plays develop in front of the net and Caps just can't elevate it or get a lucky bounce. Still, Leafs need 2 more games to win and I don't think they'll get there.

I'm WAY more surprised that the Blackhawks are down 3-0. Wow.

Yeah, agreed. Could I see them possibly losing a series to a team with Rinne in goal? Yeah. Did I see 3-0 with two home shutouts? Noooooo, sir.

Pending the outcome of this season, Trotz has only won one division title and was bounced in the second round.

Bruce has won 8 division titles, and has never coached in the Stanley Cup finals, and only once coached in the Conference Finals, 7 times losing game 7's!

But if you were up until 10:30 PT last night, that was all forgotten by Ducks fans!

At least you ended the scoring drought.

Interested to see how that pans out and if the Blue Jackets have anything left. Have they lost 10 in a row now? Sheesh!

Couldn't have been a worse draw for them.  Anaheim has owned them for over a decade - the Flames haven't won in Anaheim since this was a thing:



And with the cheap shot that put Fowler out in their last regular season meeting, this is a motivated Anaheim squad.  My biggest fear happened last night (Gibson not up to the task), yet they still gutted out an amazing comeback.  It's all mental for the Flames now.
