Ottawa deserved that game and lost it to a technical error...oh how the NHL sucks when it comes to the clock factor.

Hella exciting game nonetheless.

The Senators had 2 Power Play chances in the first OT. No excuses.

I like(d) Entourage and I like hockey. This is about both: http://sports.espn.go.com/nhl/playoffs2007...mp;lid=tab3pos2

In other sports, the "object" is mostly in the air. Hockey is a ground battle of hand-to-hand combat. There is very little "air" to the game. Thus, it's a time for grinders; for those with high thresholds for pain; for those who understand that the most satisfying times in life are accompanied by great sacrifice and selflessness, for those who understand some of the most unsatisfying times in life are spent watching "Entourage" after realizing there really is no need to watch "Entourage" anymore.

(The expiration date for "Entourage" has arrived. There is no need to refer to it, quote it, or wonder about it anymore. It was a good run, but it lost in the conference semifinals of television life. Boys, shake hands, head back to Queens and enjoy a summer of John Maine spotting fastballs on the outside corner. Better yet, watch the Stanley Cup playoffs and learn about humanity, sacrifice, pain, community and effort. Learn about life.)

Actually, maybe that's the problem -- trying to watch "Entourage" right after watching Game 3 of the Ducks-Canucks series. The "feelings" are so contrary, they can't possibly mesh. Ari was always the dangling thread to the "Entourage" sweater -- the only reason to watch, like Anze Kopitar on the Kings. But even Ari can't save this exhibition game anymore.

Johnny Drama had a half-season run -- a Fernando Pisani -- and is now a predicable caricature of his over-the-top expressions and actions. Kind of like Sean Avery before he came to New York and became a man of substance. New York will do that to a person.

Maybe that's the answer to save "Entourage." Move the show to Queens. Have the boys get their keesters kicked by the old neighborhood, and have Avery and Brendan Shanahan make a guest appearance. Have the cast discover what they've become: an uninspiring, banal organism with no "feeling."

We've said it before and we'll say it again: the Stanley Cup playoffs are the most exciting reality show on television. Its entourage of characters is what people will be talking about 20 years from now, not someone named "Turtle."

Watch the games. Feel the games. Feel life. Pass the beer nuts.

He's right too -- Entourage sucks this season.

ARRRRRRGH!!!!!!!

Sabres get screwed again! What kind of horse :censored: it that? Of all the calls I've seen go to review these playoffs, that one was probably the easiest to call a goal... and they don't allow it? Bullcrap!

That was a very close call, I think it should have counted. But you couldn't really tell with Lundqvists pad in the way, what a horrible way to lose a game.

Excuse me Sabre fans but you guys have gotten calls left and right in the first two rounds including that disallowed Rangers goal in Game 3. Or the calls against the Isles. Percentages say eventually one of those calls will go against you and tonight it did.

I think it was in, but intuition isn't part of the system. There aren't any camera angles showing white space between puck and goal line.

We're all square, Sluggos. Square in games, square in video replays.

The goal was inconclusive, at least from the aerial view. Unless there is some other view that I didn't see, then it is no goal. Clearly inconclusive. I said to myself, "Looks like the puck is against Lundquist's pad, but I'm not sure." You know, it looked like the puck was flat against his pad, similar to how your hand could be flat against a wall if you were to reach out and touch it. Either way it looked like the puck was against his pad. Key word here is looked. I thought that it was probably a goal, however there were no camera angles which allowed me to make my determination 100%. I didn't see any white ice as the announcer said or the puck cross the line for sure. I also thought about the goal that didn't count in the Tampa Bay/Calgary '04 Stanley Cup Finals. Two similar plays, though in that game, the puck was clearly in before Khabibulin kicked it away, but here it was not.

Im my UNBIASED opinion on the Rangers-Sabres situation, the goal should not have counted. The was no VISUAL evidence of white ice between the puck and goal line, therefore, the replay officials could not rule a goal. However, if there had been some kind of x-ray to see the puck under Lundqvist's pad, it would have shown that the puck was all the way across the line. Bottom line, the puck obviously crossed the line, but, the rules state that there has to be conclusive video evidence showing so, and, since there wasn't, the officials made the right call. Tough way to lose the game, but you certainly can't blame the officials on this one. They made the right call according to the rule.

You're right, but that new agent is so freaking cute.

Detroit pulls an Anaheim and ties the series. How mildly disheartening.

Uggh. This one was a heartbreaker. Blow a 2-0 lead with a shot to take it back to Det 3-1. This series just took an ugly, ugly turn for the Sharks.

Sharks should have won all 4 games, if they don't win this series its all their fault blowing two 2-0 leads.

just when i though Crosby-wank was done,

they have him on the yahoo sports page/hockey section as a candidate for the hart trophy.

i'm dreading if the rangers actually win their series, because all the faux-ranger fans at work who spend their time talking about yankees or giants all year long will start to claim they are die hard ranger fans. funny thing though, of all them only 2 of them know who Jaromir Jagr is though. :rolleyes:
