a success. They emerged from 9 years of incompetence to scare the hell out of a very good Bruins team!
Unbelievable. What a performance by Bruins! Leafs will be back. They're gutsy and weren't outclassed in ANY way by a great Boston team. Wow
Time for some air hockey with the lovely Mrs. Eklund. A pre playoff OT tradition! instagram.com/p/ZRjAHHNWm2/
ROLL CALL! If you follow me on twitter it's almost pointless to ask...but WHO is watching OT in Boston? Give me your winner. I have JVR.
CRAZY! This Bruins/Leafs game is just awesome for all NHL fans NOT in Boston or Toronto. HOLY COW!
Bruins coming hard. Toronto cant sit back like this...
Unbelievable stuff in Boston. The Leafs are taking over. Crazy.
Nothing cooler than this. Canadian Commander Chris Hadfield recorded a REAL life version of Major Tom on the ISS. youtu.be/KaOC9danxNo
So Austria's loss means they are relegated to d2. Fear of relegation haunts soccer teams in Europe every year. Maybe NHL should try it:)
New Blog> great theater! Three Game 7s in 24 hours. Does it get any better than this? My Thoughts...po.st/DMjq3S
Phenomenal series. Detroit wins 3 of 4 in OT. Two VERY evenly matched teams. Just shows you 2 vs. 7 can be even matched. Amazing stuff.
The ducks need to get more Emersen Etem on the ice more than they are. He is their best skater tonight.
Its games like this that make me believe what NHL people always will tell you...The Red Wings are the best coached team in the playoffs...
Nik Backstrom was such the natural choice to act in these commercials. It makes total sense. "Who ARE you?"...WHO are you? "who are YOU?"
Red Wings looking solid, but there may be no better team at coming from behind than the Ducks. Remember Chicago games?These guys never quit.
Been a good night for goalies named Jimmy and James. Howard the difference after first.
New blog> the Islanders are the Islanders again...and that is awesome. po.st/DE6DCk
So far 13 of you picked Blues. 9 Bruins. I am in agreement. Not a shot at the Bruins, but just a compliment to a very good Blues team done.
Ok, then. Quick poll. were there a 7 game series starting next week. Everyone healthy. Blues vs. Bruins. Who are you picking?
not hockey, just awesome. I love this. thanks to the wonderful @ijustine
for passing it along to me. THIS IS WATER youtube.com/watch?v=xmpYnx…
I truthfully would take he Blues over any team in the East in a seven game series. Crazy
So the starting time of the Rangers and Caps is 4:30 on Sunday if Toronto wins tonight, 7:30 if Boston wins.

Play with captains @Eklund @davegisaac @D_LEED
& Rachel Miller at our ice hockey tourney! ow.ly/kLBWb
As for Sens... They are starting to really remind me of 11-12 Kings. Perfect chemistry, great goaltending...can't wait to see what's next!
Tough, tough way for these Habs to go down, but this is a team that is really heading in the right direction. They will be back and healthy.
For those asking for another look at the Eklund family entertainment cave...here is a quick video tour... telly.com/LN325J
Always been a big fan of Tyler Kennedy. Good to see him get reward. Arena is going bonkers. Crankshaft makes it 2-0. DM a scoring machine
Overtime for Ducks/Wings! Why the hell not? This series along w/ Kings/Blues could save us all some.time and just skip to OT from now on!

New blog> I miss the days when referees put the whistle away in playoff OT? Should they?> po.st/OEuv28
Regehr absolutely drilled a Blues player last night behind the goal but because guy bounced back there was no call. He goes down=suspension
It really bothers me that hitting from behind/ boarding calls are so influenced by how long the player hit stays down. It shouldn't matter.
That said,in San Jose, it WAS a sweep. Sharks were the better/faster team in the series. No debate. They are just firing on all cylinders.
Been a VERY rough night for the refs tonight...Montreal and Vancouver fans not happy and with good reason.
That is an AWFUL call. Geez.
This overtime is flat out awesome! Bieksa almost was a goat there taking that rush, getting caught, giving up the 3-1...couture..pipe.
How is that NOT a penalty when Desjardins breaks the stick of the Canucks defender with a slash. That is supposed to be automatic!
Where are all the Canucks fans? So far of those who have picked only 1 player to win it in OT...46 Sharks and 5 Canucks!?!
Overtime in San Jose Roll Call! Who's watching and who is getting the game winner? I am going with Ryan Kesler.
After Niemi's play, the emergence of Pavelski as a legit top Center has been the story in San Jose...IMO...all tied up #sleepisfortheweak
