In case you haven't figured it out yet, I'm taking the playoffs off as I'd rather just watch the games and enjoy them without having to worry about writing/typing stuff down. That and I've ended up watching the games in a lot of random places.

Side note:
How did Mike Green get nominated for the Norris Trophy? I thought you had to play defense to be considered the best defenseman...

From his profile:

Scouting Report

Is a tremendous skater and a natural point producer from the back end. Likes to initiate contact and is cool under heavy fire.

Is mistake-prone in the defensive zone, which negates some of his overall effectiveness. Needs to add a little more discipline to his game.

Career potential
Power play quarterback.

Out of town. Whoops...

Game 79; Pens vs. "Bolts"

Steiggy: "Eaton got out of the way of a big hit there!"
Errey: "Did he?" (as Eaton lies on the ice after getting slammed into the boards)

"He looked like an antelope there, Staal. And Stamkos was like a deer in the headlights!"*

*As soon as I heard this one, I kept hoping the animal comparisons would continue. In my mind all I could think of was this:
"Zero hour, Michael. It's the end of the line. I'm the firstborn. I'm sick of playing second fiddle. I'm always third in line for everything. I'm tired of finishing fourth. Being the fifth wheel. There are six things I'm mad about, and I'm taking over."
