    You may cheer for Nashville all you like. The Red Wings (aka The NHL Overlords) shall prevail.

    Hah, I wasn't discounting the Sharks. They won't be Detroit's next opponent even if they beat the Flames. Detroit will play the lowest seed still playing.

    Prediction: Flyers beat up on the Ovechkins tonight, go back to Washington and lose a tight one, then clinch on Monday back in Philly.

    Uhhh, anyone who can watch Flyers-Caps Game 4, tune in now. 2nd OT is starting, and it's been unbelievable so far.

    So I was confused when I saw this game go into double overtime... That must be exclusively a playoff procedure to go into a Double OT instead of a shoot-out?

    Yeah, the shootout for regular season games was only instituted three years ago. Before that, there was one five minute overtime after which the game was declared a tie, and before THAT there was no overtime at all. You can't have a tie in a playoff game, so overtime remained in the form of full periods for playoff games.

    When the shootout was introduced, it was decided that it would not be applied to the playoffs. The shootout is really a concession to expedience and finishing games in a reasonable amount of time while still always declaring a winner. In the playoffs the balance of expedience to a fair outcome is understandably slanted far in favor of the latter.

    Ahh, I see. I was assuming that but wasn't sure.

    What a great Detroit/Nash game tonight! Preds tied it up 1-1 within the last 45 seconds of reg time. Lost shortly into OT though . Better luck in game 6 at Nashville. Detroit was playing mean offensively though, I'm surprised Detroit didn't come out with a higher score. They sure had a hell of a lot of shots on goal. Nashville was able to manage the onslaught. Some good goal tending tonight.

    Yeah, Dan Ellis must be ready to put a hit out on his whole team. He's the only reason they're still in this, and I'm not sure they actually are still in this. They really needed to get that win in OT, it was a game they had no business winning and they could have stolen it. And stealing a game is what could have helped them win the series.

    Also, in the regular season, the overtime period is 4-on-4 hockey, but it's the normal 5-on-5 in the playoffs. Which is idiotic. I hate the shootout, and it should be one 10-minute sudden-death OT, and then a tie. Ties didn't bother me in the least. A gigantic amount of 3-point games does. The NFL has ties (they almost never happen, but they do). They shouldn't settle there game with field goal HORSE.
