I’m not going to lie, there was a brief period in that second period where I think I had an erection from watching a hockey game. That hasn’t happened in a while, and certainly not in this series. Like, I don’t want to be weird about things, but I was turned on. That was the first time all series this truly felt like the playoffs. The action finally opened up, the Rangers got away from their game, Ryan McDonagh played terribly, and the Flyers were the aggressors. It was hot. It was… the sort of night where your buddy texts you a shower pic of his again-dyed black beard and you think nothing of it and show the utmost restraint by not posting it on this site.

*Nothing against JJ. He’s great. But the game takes on added gravity when I hear Doc’s voice. Was in the press box bathroom for the opener last year (after the lockout), peeing, and I hear behind me: “Great to be back in the saddle again!” It was Doc. You haven’t lived until you’ve shaken three times with the greatest hockey voice in the world chattering away behind you. I was so gleeful. Thankfully Doc couldn’t see my face because I must have looked like Taylor Swift when she finds out she won an award:

And what a dumb question this was:

I don’t even know where to begin with the highlights, but him robbing Carl Hagelin in the second period was absurd:

Mason was all over the place. His glove was lightning quick. Is this what it feels like to have a goalie in the playoffs? If so, I want more of that, please.

Speaking of, Philly Phaithful has their take on the Stone Cold Steve Mason t-shirt.


No deal

The Phillies made this deal… and then got their asses kicked:

But hey, at least they were watching:

Typical set of racist Tweets about Wayne Simmonds. But this guy took it to a whole new level. He’s since made his account private. He also might not have a job tomorrow:

Idiot got his history wrong. But even by his dumbass math the Rangers would’ve lost 3-2.


Much more after the jump.

Got his ass kicked by Brian Boyle, laughed about it, probably because a bunch of teen girls were pawing at him:
