I like the way you think, although I've never really felt it was up to him.  If the Ducks start every game hitting the way they did last night and causing that much commotion, they're going to be tough to beat.

Last year wasn't Turco's fault; Turco was great, Luongo was simply transcendent. Fact remains that the perception is that Turco is soft and folds in the playoffs and if Anaheim pulls it out, even if every game left is 1-0 in 3OTs, Turco will get blamed.
 
 That said, Game 4 is the entire series. If the Stars win it, they're winning the series. If the Ducks win Game 4, Ducks in 6.

I don't know what would be more embarrassing if I was a Sens fan. Being swept in the first round. Or the WWE-style intro to Monday's game.
 
 Just drop the friggin' puck.

 Fore straight - Next!
 
 ppg:
 
 Burning question: What would be the Penguins' most intriguing second-round matchup?
 Breakdown: The Rangers, with ex-Penguins Jaromir Jagr, Martin Straka and Michal Rozsival (plus Jordan Staal's brother, Marc) would be interesting, but nothing would beat a Penguins-Capitals series. Alexander Ovechkin against the Penguins' young guns would make for the most compelling storyline. Far less intriguing would be Penguins-Devils or Penguins-Bruins. There is no scenario in which the Penguins would play the top-seeded Canadiens or the sixth-seeded Flyers.
 
 PuckSpeak: "I did (like Mellon Arena) when I used to play here, but it's not easy when everybody's booing you when you touch the puck." - Jagr, during his most recent visit to Pittsburgh.
 
 Looking ahead: The Penguins were 3-3-2 against the Rangers this season, topping three goals only once. They were 3-0-1 against the Capitals, with one of the wins in overtime and the loss in a shootout. They were 2-2 against the Bruins, though one loss was with what amounted to a split squad after the trade deadline. Finally, the Penguins were 4-3-1 against the Devils, scoring four or more goals four times. They outscored New Jersey, 9-1, in the final two meetings of the season.
 
 
 Drooling @ the thought of them facing the one-man band.

I don't get the Pen's fans booing him? (besides him being a big douchebag)
 He never did anything bad to the team while he was there. Is it 'cause he cut the mullet?

I hope the Capitals lose, if only for the fact that they are on Vs. and blacked out on my TV.  Yet, I dont get CSN-MA.  So not only do i not get to see the games, but Vs. doesnt show a different game to those blacked out, so i get to watch Boston in SD and i get NADA in HD.
 
  and now i am listening to the 2-OT game on the radio...like its 1963.
 
  fuckers.

Fuck.  Couldn't agree more.  I can't believe I'm driving 450 miles to Anaheim to see game 5, when it ultimately won't matter.
