Dallas-Edmonton is always a fun series to watch and last night's 3rd period did not disappoint - 3 Edmonton goals in 3:05 (4 goals total with Dallas sneaking one in) - Dvorak's GWG was a thing of beauty - don't remember seeing him skate like that at MSG in the recent past......
I think Dallas still takes this series but now it definitely goes 7 games

Dallas-Edmonton is always a great series and last night's game was proof positive of that. As great as Dvorak's goal was, though, my favorite play of the night was Georges Laraque's goal...what an effort from the big man. He brushed aside Richard Matvichuk at the blueline like he was a gnat, not a 6'2", 215 lb. monster, crashed around behind the net and managed to stuff it past Turco. Its a huge lift for the Oil when Georges pots one.
Do you smell what Laraque is cookin?

Watching Laraque last night was like watching Bertuzzi, he just got the puck behind the net and knocked everybody out of the way. The Oilers were well on their way to defeat before he scored that goal. Oilers in 7 and Canucks in 6!
Tampa Bay (1) vs N.Y. Islanders (8) This is going to be tougher than your average 1v8 series. New York matches up well with Tampa and I'm still not convinced they didn't get a 1 seed by playing in a weak division.
