The kid has indeed had a nice start for your boys. For what it's worth, no rookie's first two NHL goals have come in the playoffs ever before. Probably should have had him up earlier already.

Wow.

They wanted him, but he wanted to play his junior season at BC. They signed him as soon as season ended.

Ovechkin! :cool:

I love how he gave it back to the MSG crowd Hulk Hogan style after they were razzing him earlier in the game.

Blues: "We'll show you Canucks how things are done!"

So much for that.

Pretty surprising in my opinion. Maybe it's LA's year?

I'm more surprised that Nashville is down 2-0 to the team who no one cares about. I have to laugh how the arena in Glendale manages to fill up more or less for playoff games but the team couldn't give tickets away during the regular season. And get your own traditions already! The White-Out belongs to Winnipeg. I still hope the Coyotes relocate to somewhere they are appreciated. The bandwagon fans in Arizona don't deserve NHL hockey. Okay, rant over.

Radulov and Kostitsyn(whatever) missing game 3 is great for the character of hockey. Nobody is above the team. Trotz and Ruff are the two longest serving current coaches for a reason; they instill a set of rules, enforce them and for those who don't oblige are gone.
For those two russian mafia bosses to break curfew during a playoff game is inexcusable. But in this modern age of money and attitude, it's nice to see that Trotz holds integrity above all else. Good on him for doing it.

When the Nordiques left Quebec and became the Avs, they won a title in the first year of their relocation.

Would be hilarious if Phoenix wins a cup and gets moved to Quebec the following season.

Trotz said if they win game 3 (and they did) that the lineup would remain the same for game 4. I bet Radulov and Kostitsyn feel like complete asses at this point.

If Trotz goes without them in Game 4 then go for it....This can go on for a few games until they lose. It's like going with a hot goaltender. Are the Preds better without them? They played well all year without Radulov but he is worth having in the line up. Short term maybe but eventually they will have to play. Lesson learned? Sure. When those two come back they will be playing their hearts out. It's a win win for Trotz.
