It's always been a fast moving sport.

In my opinion, it's the best sport to watch in person. You think it looks good on TV? Go to a game and see what you think.

Pittsburgh swarmed the Sharks for 50 of the 60 minutes last night, but in hockey your team can steal a win with a great goaltender.

Martin Jones is the only reason SJ is still alive.
"HE SHOOTS!... HE SCORES!!!... HEY GOALIE... YOU SUCK!!!"

Martin owned Bonino last night. Couture played lights out as well.

I've watched hockey before, but not frequently and attentively.

It was always fast-paced, which I like. But, I don't remember teams being as lightning quick for a full hour like the match I watched last night.

I'm having a hard time getting away from the phone these days, but I'll try to watch the next game at the bar if I can. My tv is tiny.

That was the big deal going into this series. Both teams are 4 lines deep and every one of them are faster than shit. Jones will have to stand on his head for the next two games, but they've done it before in this playoff season.

I thought I'd put this here rather than in the death list -

"Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe, whose career spanned six decades and included four Stanley Cups with the Detroit Red Wings, died Friday, his son, Marty Howe, told CNN. He was 88.

The Hockey Hall of Famer had had health struggles in recent years, suffering a stroke in 2014. A statement from the Howe family said he passed away peacefully Friday morning with his family by his side.

As a six-time league MVP, Howe arguably was one of the sport's greatest players, scoring 801 goals in his 26 years in two stints in the National Hockey League.

Yeah, I saw this earlier this morning. I always hated the red wings for as long as I can remember but Gordie was a respectable dude. Right up there with LeMieux, and of course Clarke. RIP Mr Hockey.

The Gordie Howe Hat Trick:

One goal, one assist & one fight.

Not necessarily in that order.

Well, IMO, the Penguins were the best team in the NHL over the 2nd half of the regular season, and that carried right through the playoffs.

Congrats to the 2016 Stanley Cup Champs!

PITTSBURGH PENGUINS!

I'm bummed that San Jose didn't take the Cup. But, I'm happy for Pittsburgh.

Your Sharks played well, but just couldn't sustain anything offensively.

My buddies and I agreed: whoever won the series between WASH & PITT in the 2nd Round would win the Cup.

^ Sidney Crosby of the Pittsburgh Penguins won the Conn Smythe Trophy today, being recognized as the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Crosby, 28, led the Penguins to their second title during his 10-year career, after Pittsburgh took home the cup in 2009.

In six games, he finished the Stanley Cup Finals with six goals and 13 assists, including one that helped Kris Letang score the game-winning goal, and one that set up Patric Hornqvist for a game-sealing empty-netter.

Crosby and Toews (of the Chicago Blackhawks) are probably the most amazing hockey players of this decade. Super bummed the sharks couldn't pull it off.
