Karlsson saw Ovechkin coming on the forecheck and he bailed out so hard. Wanted no part of getting to that puck first.

I kind of want to be a Vegas fan after that intro. I've never really had a team. I heard they won't be able to hold the team together and this is kind of an expansion draft fluke, is that true?

Serious answer is I think they'll be good for awhile. They have a good core. They've just been snake bitten this round.

Nah - they are fine. Good players. Good goalie. Lots of draft picks coming up. Lots of cap space.

Several of their players are having the best season of their careers. Is this a system change for them? Attitude? Coincidence? But they've also massive outperformed guesses and have a lot of cap space to grow.

it depends on if you think half of a team is having the best years of their career because of additional play time or because they're playing well as a team

I kind of wish Tampa made it through just for the mental image of the Knights using trebuchets against clouds or tesla coils like some sort of hosed up Command & Conquer.

they're currently doing what the capitals do in every loving postseason where they try to wait for the perfect shot instead of just shooting the stupid puck and seeing what happens

Seems like VGK needs to go from high to low more, though. Skating around the block and shooting from 89į on Holtby isnít going to get it done, and puts the defender out of position on the inevitable turnover.

Feather that poo poo in on a seam and let your guys like Neal clean up the garbage.

Orpik slashes a dude 3 times in front of a ref, nothing. Wilson clearing dudes 20' from the puck, nothing.

The refs aren't the difference, but goddamn they are loving horrible.

Also goddamn those state of decay 2 commercials look like a straight up movie. There's no way that's game footage.
