Dirty rumour that Sid-the-Kid will be back in line-up shortly. This is strictly a rumour at this point. Crosby has not yet been cleared for contact, and he is still wearing the red jersey in practise.
That being said, the line has opened up on Sidney Crosby's games played this year. Vegas bookrunners have the odds at exactly 50 / 50. On the over under for games played the magic number is 41.5 g... Read More »

Thought both goalies excluding Luongo played awesome.
Great game - c... Read More »

Hind sight is 50/50 - Yes - but why start Leighton???
I still don't understand why they didn't ride Bobrovsky. Sure he let in a few stinkers but he had one heck of a season. He is young - he is a rookie - why not get him the playoff experience.
Will be interesting to see how Bobrovsky's confidence is after being a healthy scratch for the playoffs.
