Pesky Leafs force a game 7, great goaltending on both sides.  While Im at it, so sorry for all involved in this tragedy in Toronto where 10 are said dead at this point, very sad.

Tragic day in Toronto.  And as unimportant as it is in the grand scheme of things - it was really nice to see the Leafs win tonight for a city that was reeling all day.

Game was so much fun.   :)

I miss hearing Joe Bowen on Leafs regional telecasts during the season. He used to do the regional Leafs games on Sportsnet and TSN but now is strictly on radio. Here him calling some of the key moments of last night's thriller.

with no NHL today, thoughts turn to football and football. Still 51 days until both start.
Crush cream soda is oh so good.  I think I'll have another

I don't think I am always right, it just keeps turning out that way

51 days until (football) start.
WOW!  2018 is zooming by.

I was having a discussion with my wife earlier today and I realized that it was not still Feb but April.  Sheesh

If the Leafs lose, tonight, Matthews is to blame.    >:(

I would LOVE to see the Leafs win.  So much fun for the Golden Horseshoe.

I know I am NOT objective, but Matthews have been AWFUL.  He really has.

PeeWee Herman's worst nightmare, a Toronto vs. Winnipeg Stanley Coupe final appears to have been partially averted tonite - as the Leafs do a late game folderoodoo to the feisty Bruins.

Pee Wee (aka NHL commissioner Gary Bettman) would have rather have upstart Winnipeg, the league's smallest market exterminated first - but pickers can't be choosers and so Winnipeg becomes Canada's last stand, trying to regain hockey pride north of the border.

You can hear the homerism gradually drip away from Leafs announcer Jim Hughson. Hughson is beside himself - trying to talk the Leafs back into the match.

Now, he'll be forced to be Homer Boy for a team he doesn't really know - The Winnipeg Jets - the Canadian Hockey Champions!!!
WAITING FOR A  MIRACLE - 28 YEARS, COUNTING!

Gardner was BEYOND bad. 
Matthews did NOTHING and quit on the team.

Shameful 3rd period.

Matthews didn't even try.

Matthews apologists on social media are saying he's hurt.  He better be because, if he isn't, he quit on the team.

I will repost my picks here

Eastern Conference:

Lightning vs. Devils- not an easy series for Tampa, but they win in 7
Bruins vs. Leafs- Bruins are battle tested... they win in 5
Caps vs. Jackets- might the hardest one to predict... Caps in 6
Pens vs. Flyers- another 7 gamer, Pittsburgh wins

Western Conference:

Golden Knights vs. Kings- Knights crap out.. Kings in 6
Ducks vs. Sharks San Jose in 6
Nashville vs. Colorado Preds in 7
Jets vs. Wild  a good rivalry series, Jets in 5
Well I was 4/4 in the East & 3/4 in the west, but only 2 correct in # of games... anyway, on to the second round picks:

Eastern Conference:

Bruins vs. Lightning- should be a good series Bolts win in 7
Caps vs. Pens- Caps playoff choke continues, Pens in 6

Western Conference:

Preds vs. Jets- I agree with Biron the Cup final a month early... Jets in 6
Golden Knights vs. Sharks... tough series to call... Sharks in 6

Winnipeg vs. Nashville is going to be one the best playoff series in a long time... both teams are very good and its a shame that one has to lose this early. The NHL can fix this problem by having 1vs8, 2vs7 etc... but having division teams meeting more than they do in the regular season. They can create more rivalries by open ending the final 3 or 4 games so that teams fighting to make the playoffs can play each other to claim a spot.
