NHL Playoff Observations — No-one kicked off the island

Just a few things that caught my eye:

  • No Calder nom? No problem. Here’s a screw you hat trick, NHL. And it was Filip Forsberg’s first career hattie even.
  • I wonder if Luke Glendening was the type of kid who poked the proverbial bear just to get attention. ‘Cuz that’s what the dork did tonight, less than seven-and-a-half-minutes from a three-games-to-one stranglehold over the Bolts. Honestly, is there EVER a good time to poke a sleeping bear?

You hit L.A. the next day uninspired and out to lunch, and haven’t scored a goal since (three assists, though). That’s 13 freaking games! Stop pouting and prove you’re a man.
