Wow. Already an exciting Day 1 of playoff hockey. Just nothing like it!!! Flyers @ Pens (Game 1): An embarrassment for the Pens. Up 3-0, at home, and the Flyers win 4-3 with a dramatic comeback. Letang was dreadful on the ice, but the Pens as a whole stopped playing after it was 3-0. Lesson learned! The Flyers are definitely not as good as the Pens, but the last thing you want to do is to make the Flyers a confident team. Red Wings @ Predators (Game 1): Pretty much what i expected. Rinne was amazing and i think he won that game, no doubt, but the Preds really played a strong game against what is a hard Red Wings team. The games will be close in this series. Weber should get a 1-game suspension for making a Slap Shots play by drilling Z's head into the glass with his hand. Just dirty and unacceptable. Kings @ Canucks (Game 1): Where do i begin? I think the Canucks played stupid hockey from start to finish. I am not sure why NBC had Bryan Hayward as color commentator as the guy could be ridiculously biased against the Kings, and he was. He "did not see anything" that Kesler did on that play with Quick. It was idiotic. Well after the whistle why would he come in like that on the goalie? Kassian didn't take the strides on that charging penalty, so he said, but probably lifting yourself off the ice plays a factor? Just stupid penalties one after another, and in the first period i even counted three interference calls that should have been called on Vancouver that would have most likely been called in the reg-season. Kesler interfered with Quick, i thought. But, i don't think that should have been the reason to disallow the goal. I just think it should have been a penalty right away. Quick waste precious time by trying to poke Kesler, then get back into position and he was not ready for the shot. Tough luck, Jonny, you should have focused on the play, not on Kesler. I hope Booth still gets revenge on Richards and puts him on a stretcher. Again this guy just has no respect for players. While i think it is even hard to have any respect for Burrows, that was just a cheap shot hit at the end of the game when he should have been more aware defensively. This guy is despicable. Canucks should learn a lot from this game. The Kings are BIG players and they are tougher. The Canucks tried to be more physical, and they were, but it did not bother the Kings one bit and the difference was that the Canucks were overly physical and played stupid hockey, while the Kings played physical, as they are accustomed to, but maintained their game plan. Next game, the Canucks just need to show physicality, not overdo it, and play the high skilled Canucks hockey that we know. Do not try to be tougher than the Kings. It won't work and the penalties turn out to be idiotic. Bitz, what the hell was that? One game suspension should be awarded.
