Killorn is a beast in the playoffs. We’re dominating right now.

NJ looks frustrated.

It sucks watching this in standard def. The HD feed of NBC keeps cutting in and out for me here. Oh well. At least I'm able to watch it. Was worried earlier when they were giving the Preds a ton of pre-game coverage. Thought they were going to show that over the Lightning game.

Speaking of...whose idea was it to have two playoff games on at the same time?

Jersey hasn’t played bad. But the Bolts have made them pay for every mistake and penalty they’ve made.

The fact that we got McDonagh and Miller in that Namestikov trade is ridiculous! Miller is a beast.

Yzerman has to be the best GM in the league.

4 minutes to go. Devils playing desperate as they should be. Bolts doing nothing on offense this entire period outside of the first 2-3 minutes.

Did this commentator just say the Devils have been the more physical team? Is he watching the same game?

Yeah, the scoreboard called it a goal and the Devils were celebrating. But, the refs were waving it off the whole time.

My takeaways:

Playoff Killorn justifies his price tag.

The new triplets line is really ****ing good.

Yanni Gourde is like the energizer bunny hopped up on PCP, meth, and uncut cocaine. Dude is everywhere.

Kuch is enjoyable and frustrating to watch, in equal measures.

Vasy's reaction time is utterly ridiculous.

Miller straight up bodied Lovejoy all game long, and that "penalty" was the refs feeling bad for him.


State of the series in a sentence: Good wins on home ice have given us a nice lead, but heading into Devils territory; I expect a lot more physical play where a breakaway could determine the final outcome. (News at 11)
