It's a ridiculously-early NBC game today, because you want your Stanley Cup Finals rematch to be at the most inconvenient time for anyone to watch it.

The Freep says that Tomas Holmstrom will not return today and that Brad Stuart, Valtteri Filppula and Todd Bertuzzi didn't practice yesterday. Sweet. So much for getting healthy right on time.

For anyone actually setting aside time to watch the game, this thread will be going. Winging it in Motown will also be doing their "Hockeytown for Haiti" fundraiser thread, with $0.05 donated to the Red Cross for every post made.

I agree love the HD, but hate that its on NBC, Datsyuk highstick looked a little phantom to me unless it was on Pierre, which I still believe he is a Penguin

Average power play for the Penguins or solid kill by the Wings? Seems like a matter of perspective to me.

Seconded. Didn't hit him with his stick at all. But the NBC guys thought it was a great call. Surprise.

Wow, even the city of Pittsburgh is better than anywhere in North America. Thanks, Pierre.

How long does Howard have to keep that covered to get a whistle, about 6 whacks and another penalty

The ref wasn't sure 'cause he was certain the Penguins would score. He took extra long to look in the net to make sure it wasn't there already.

This Verizon commercial with the Caps and Flyers is a better hockey commercial than anything the NHL itself puts out.

Holy hell, Detroit power play. And Pierre has a problem with it.

Did they just say that was a call a lot of people wouldn't like? How does that make sense? I thought it was a dandy call.

Did Emrick just sound surprised that Crosby was out on the PK? I know I was.

Well that was an awful period. The good news is I know I can mute the TV for the next 17 minutes or so.

But at least the NHL commercials are better than the Geico one they just showed.

Just thought the same thing. Depeche Mode can now heal my ears.

Wings power play looks awful. Maybe they'd rather the Lidstrom high stick have been called?
