    why were Letang and Timmonen ejected? For T, I'm guessing it's because his jersey wasn't tied down (aka, the stupidest thing you can do to ensure ejection should things become rough), but I'm not sure about Letang.

    for starting a fight while a fight was already going on, i think. letang ROCKED timmonen.


    he got a minor for slashing, which offset legwand's holding call. about as blatant a spear as you can get.

    and i agree with you regarding the violence issue. all kinds of crap like asham crosschecking schenn in the throat and then suckerpunching him when he was down. like you said, i honestly dont think anything is going to change until somebody dies or gets paralyzed or something equally terrible.

    there has to be a reffing and supplementary discipline crackdown across the board. asham shouldn't play another game until october.

    hahaha, well played. i really can't see the pens coming back in this series. WTF took so long for johnson to get in net? he should've been in after the 3rd goal, beginning of the 2nd period at the latest.

    What a fucking joke...Adams pulling hair, Neil running guys twice on one shift (clearly attempt to injure, as one was leaving his feet without the puck, the other was high) Hartnell (whom I really like) respnding like an idiot, and even Crosby was trying not to laugh when they played the Hulk Hogan snippet...its not the NHL, its fucking Slapshot.

    How many teams have come back from being down 3-0? like 3? It's not going to happen.

    Way too much goonery on the ice just now. This season is getting especially nasty. Let's hope the Rangers can turn it around tomorrow night!

    I actually really like the Flyers. They play really tough, but not dirty like the Bruins or cheap like the Pens. Lots of respect for them even though Rangers fans are supposed to hate them (and hate everybody for that matter).

    +1. Respect. I think they play a lot like the Rangers, They may have more skill, but between the pipes you'll see the difference between the two teams.

    3 games for Hagland. Sounds about right to me considering there's no suspension history for the player in question. I would have guessed two games, but it's clear that Shanaban has no compass anymore.

    Unbelievable. Maybe its my blue blood, but Weber gets nothing and Hagelin, with NO history of this, get THREE playoff games?

    Yea Shanny is all over the place. No consistency anywhere in the league (wearing stripes or sitting in the front office). No one knows what the rules are anymore.

    I'll withhold my judgment until we see what Carkner and the Penguins crew get. I've got to say that I'm a little bit surprised that Hags got three.
