You always match Red with beef, and whites with Chicken and Fish, so clearly, you want to go with Fruit Punch with steak.

It's entirely too early for me to jump on that 'called it' bandwagon, but those year older kids looked pretty damn good last night.

The Bruins gave up some really dumb plays, and couldn't seem to keep the puck on their stick. I mean, they were fumbling with it like a bunch of mites trying to learn to stickhandle. But Rask was...Rask. He was average, middle of the road Goalie.

Mike Smith has more points than the Colorado Avalanche.

He is the new Tim Thomas. Probably just as nuts, minus all the held up in a bunker stuff.

Hate to break out a cliche this early but Tampa absolutely has to win tonight.  And I'm talking a full on chase Bobrovsky from the net and leave Torts weeping in a corner scorched earth win.  The longer they wait to bury Columbus the harder it gets.

Winning a playoff round was the one I was. Bonus, solves the Bolts. Destroys my Bracket, but I can live with that.

Indeed. And also, I don't want them getting that against teh Caps, so I'd be extraordinarily happy if the Bolts ended up that way.

i'm very curious to see how Cooper reacts to losing Game 1. My knock against him has been his tendency to go into a shell in critical times. For instance, when the Caps scored the first goal in Game 7 last year, he responded by spending way more time trying not to go down 2-0 than he did trying to tie the game at 1-1 despite his offensive weapons. (Exhibit A: giving way more ice time to Girardi and their checking line after the goal than he should have).

Tonight is a litmus test. If Tampa doesn't come out and play to their strength with their foot fully on the gas, they could be in trouble. At the very least, it may show a vulnerability that a team like the Bruins or a coach like Babcock could exploit in the next round if they do get past the Jackets.

/my opinion
//probably wrong

Good lord, this.

Look, if the Lightning lose the round, it's going to blow my bracket (and I'd assume 99.8% of all NHL Playoff Brackets in existence) out the window, but damn if it wouldn't be worth it for Columbus to get out of the first round.  The problem is they keep getting 1st round matchups against Cup Winners (3 of their last 4 playoff appearances), and I'd like to see the Jackets have some measure of playoff success.

If only to prove that Ohio pro sports teams can have something nice, occasionally.  I mean, all I have locally are the Reds and Bengals, so I wouldn't know anything about local professional sports, but Columbus is close enough to want to see them succeed.

This is good advice, the Greenlit tab is my favorite tab. They usually aways only talk about TFD when talking about Total Fark. There's this, the Commented tab, and the Total Fark tab where you can see every single headline/article that's submitted, not just the greened ones.
