    There would be three original six match ups; Though I like that Boston and Montreal have time to switch.

    I know it's only against Carolina, but damn it's nice to see the Bruins actually scoring.

    What a bullshit tripping call on Van Riemsdyk.

    Only bullshit that it was actually a slash, not a trip.

    More like Stralman diving, he got chewed out by one of the refs when he got back on the ice. He would not have fallen if he didn't dive, JVR hardly hit him with his stick blade. Trust me, Stralman used to play for us, he used to dive in the defensive zone.

    Also, that Nash goal was a combination of interference and a kicking motion.

    Meh, you're a Leafs fan and I'm a Rangers fan. I say it wasn't a dive, you say it was. Hit with a stick to the knee doesn't have to be hard to hurt, pads don't cover 100% and if you get hit in that spot, you go down.

    I haven't seen so many posts/crossbars hit in a game in a while.

    I don't think it was a penalty or a dive, I think he just twisted his leg and the refs made a bad call. It was an exciting game though.

    At times, both teams looked so good and at other times, both teams looked like shit with poorly played pucks and turnovers. Unfortunately for the Rangers, they looked like shit a bit more. Way too many lost pucks and at times looked completely lost on the ice.

    Kessel was dynamite tonight, I wish he could play like that every night. I like how so many Leafs fans and the media rip on him for not scoring and yet he has points in most games even when he isn't scoring the goals. Maybe it's because he has changed his game, rather then being a puck hog he accepts play making is a part of the game and that elite scorers do more then just bury the puck, they support the other 5 guys on the ice and that includes the goalie.

    Soccer status dive LOL. Look at him acting like that 1 handed love tap was a 2 handed overhead tomahawk smash right on the bone. What a piece of work.

    If I rip on Kessel it's for his often (until recently from the games I've seen) lack of defensive giving a fuck.

    He has been pretty good defensively on a lot of nights. People complain because he doesn't hit and he shies away from taking one, but he has blocked more then his fair share of shots in the defensive zone this year.
