Indeed, this has been a great playoff year. The Lightning & Flyers have fought tooth & nail, and the Flames & Sharks have as well. Tonight the Calgary Flames moved to within ONE WIN of the Stanley Cup Finals (their first appearance in the big dance since 1989, when they won). I can't wait until Wednesday night...the city will be a bloody ZOO.

I was at the Boston Pizza on Memorial Drive tonight. They have a promotion if Calgary shuts out the opposition, then beer is 50 cents for an hour after the game. With about two minutes left in the game, the entire place was chanting "50 CENTS". So much fun.

But since the road team always wins, don't you REALLY have to wait until Friday?

Ah come on dunkndollaz you gota go with the Fly guys tonight. Did you watch game 4? Tampa had no control at all and the way the Flyers D is playing it looks like Tampa has no shot. I like the Flyers tonight in a 4-1 game.

Tampa came out strong and lost control for about :38 seconds, which cost them 2 goals. There were a lot of penalty calls as well, several of which were seemingly out of nowhere. Either way, it was a good game tonight.

heh...way to jinx it, jerk...that was almost as bad as Glenn Healy calling him Esche-manek during the intermission. I can't believe the Flyers pulled on out with Esche letting in so many bad goals. Hopefully they'll take a look at tonight's game and realize that when they're motivated (like in OT tonight) Tampa just can't hang with them and come out energized on Saturday.
