greenking: It has been a weird Season. I think the first team to win on the road wins the series. I really think the Key is the Kings staying out of the box. 5 on 5 we win that battle. SJ power play is very good. This may come down to a special Teams battle.

azking: I hate how the NHL does their matchups. Having to play San Jose first sucks. I just am not confident right now. I think we are a good team but I am not sure we are as hungry as we need to be. We have done so much turning it on and off and while that works against bad teams, it won't work in the playoffs. I just hope we don't come out flat and have to scramble. If we can somehow get this first game, I think it will really get into the heads of San Jose.

naturallawyer: Sucks for getzlaf, but the ref should not have blown the whistle there.

nobska: how sweet would a duck meltdown be?
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 5:56:07 PM

kingleberry: Yay! Dallas making it interesting!
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 5:54:57 PM

greenking: Why can I imagine all the kings and ducks bloggers playing dungeons and dragons in Dennis bernsteins basement while his mom makes them marshmallow squares
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 5:41:28 PM

kingleberry: Dallas, please show that you at least deserve to be in the postseason.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 5:36:03 PM

nobska: ha ha ha, that's f'in brilliant!!!

kingleberry: are you hot? ;)

esaki: Did the color guy in this game win a contest? It sounds like this is his first hockey game.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 4:55:26 PM

kingleberry: Even with all the peanlties Anaheim is taking, Dallas doesn't look like they should even be on the ice with them
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 4:52:20 PM

nobska: man that orange is heinous. who thought that was a good color - yes i'm a girl
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 4:51:04 PM

esaki: The Stars have actually worked them this period. The Ducks have just buried their chances. Same old same old this year with those guys.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 4:46:58 PM

Grinder: The Stars are crapping the bed early down 2-0. They'd better get it in gear soon.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 4:40:25 PM

nobska: one of my favorite things about the playoffs...
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 4:39:35 PM

nobska: ya and i can't come up with any plausible reason why. he just has some awful moments, but even without those he still can't come close to hitting the net.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 3:24:35 PM

greenking: Great opening night so far
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 3:20:50 PM

greenking: It's amazing that such a talented guy is so mentally out of it sometimes
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 3:17:44 PM

nobska: ha, ha, saw that. so bad. still think that trade was the best DL has ever made.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 3:15:44 PM

greenking: Don't ever change jack Johnson , use your stick dumbass
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 3:02:37 PM

greenking: Lol that's awesome. Pitt has solid D................
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 2:42:25 PM

esaki: Just covered my Columbus/Pittsburgh Over 5.5 bet with 18 minutes to go in the second. Beautiful start to the playoffs.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 2:41:16 PM

greenking: Stamkos just light up price what a shot
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 2:36:06 PM

esaki: Mr. Hockey himself, Jack Johnson, has a goal and an assist through one in Pittsburgh. Fun fact: Johnson is chiboyla's favorite player of all time not named Sean Avery.

ian22: Yahoo! Sports' series preview gives a slight edge to the Sharks to take the series.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 1:34:51 PM

ian22: Because the Kings had the radder jerseys. How many Ducks fans are still buying that duck hunting orange jersey?

ericd: Yep... especially the classy cheese and crackers bit, but I likes my port and tequila... separately preferably...

htxt: Good to see Cam Charron writing again, this time on why Anaheim and Colorado are vulnerable.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 10:02:07 AM

kingleberry: Just got done watching them pass the cup around on the NHL network after our 6-1 over NJ in game 6 in 2012. They passed it around so fast. I think they need another go at it! God i love this team.
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 8:58:19 AM

esaki: I'm not real excited about Thornton against Carter either, especially if they saddle him with some not-so-great possession wings. I think you have to play Richards and Carter on the second and tell Richards to shadow. On the flip side, if the Sharks continue to play Sheppard as the 3rd line center instead of Pavelski, they are going to get murdered at the Staples Center, so there are matchup issues on both sides.

htxt: Kopitar is +116 in shot differential at evens vs the Sharks since '11-12 (including last year’s playoffs). (Don’t tell anyone, but he might be an elite player.)
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 5:45:52 AM

nocloutier: thats a very well thought out reply.. is this all from personal experience?
Wednesday Apr 16, 2014 - 5:12:18 AM

esaki: Bergeron is pretty awesome, though. I mean, I'm biased towards Kopitar winning, but it wouldn't be a travesty if Bergeron got it. There is a long way to third place, though.
