    Habs against the Caps - Holtby standing on his head early on. 0-0 midway through the 1st period.

    Carolina Hurricanes have clinched a playoff berth for the first time in 10 years. That means every team in the NHL has made the playoffs at least once this decade.

    If not the Sharks, I'm rooting for Carolina. They've taken the "Bunch of Jerks" monicure and made it their own. That's usually a rally cry for Playoff success and bringing the team together.

    Same here. If not the Leafs, I'm with any non-Pittsburgh or Boston teams.

    Since the Blackhawks are out of it, I have adopted the Vegas Golden Knights.

    Let the playoffs begin. What a great time of the year. MLB is in full swing; NHL playoffs; Premier League football; UEFA football; the Masters this weekend. Sports fan Nirvana!

    Islanders score in the first 33 seconds only to have replay rule "no goal" because the play was offside.

    Then they turn right around and score again. 1-0 Islanders over the Penguins after 1:40 of the first period.

    At the risk of being called a misogynist, a female color commentator for a hockey broadcast is just wrong. Watching the game on NBCSN and I don't know her name and she actually seems to know a little. But that voice is just wrong. BTW game is tied 1-1 with 13+ minutes left in the 1st period.

    Agreed. This is my favorite time of year in the entire sports calendar.

    That is AJ Melasko and I think she's doing a decent job. I'm glad more woman are getting into those roles.

    She is doing a fine job, but the voice is just so incongruous.

    Wow, the very first game of the playoffs provides a shocker. Columbus come back from down 0-3 to steal game 1 in Tampa.

    And then there is Joe Pavelski's "mouth" goal against the Golden Knights.

    That was awesome and scary at the same time. Pavelski can deflect the puck from anywhere.

    Holy crap! Is Columbus going to beat Tampa Bay again? They lead 2-0 late in the 1st period.

    One of the more shocking turn of events I've seen in hockey. The pressure on Tampa is now tremendous. At least the '96 Red Wings made it to the Western Finals.

    This game 3 is really feisty. Tampa Bay doesn't want to be embarrassed.
