Minnesota 0-3

Other team is #2 Pittsburgh at 3-0.

shocked with the hawks quick exit. Also caps locked in a tight series. I am starting to think the penguins are set to repeat.

Two years in a row Hawks get knocked out in the first round. Beginning of the end?

They're not beating the Habs. Unless of course Kreider Kreiders Price.

good win, but rangers still have a lot of things to improve on for the 2nd round. need improved power play, better play from miller, hayes and hopefully stall can stop sucking.

I'm not worried about the 2nd round. It's the Rangers series to lose.
I agree about Hayes, and Miller, though they did a terrific job setting up the GWG. Maybe that will spark them. I would also add that Kreider and Stepan haven't done nearly enough, and they were always great playoff performers. OTOH, we saw lots more positives that any fan should be happy about:

-Nash was playing up to his contract, best Rangers forward all series long
-Hanks back into pristine playoff form
-Buchnevich and Vesey didn't do much damage to the scoresheet but it's great to see rookies creating lots of great opportunities
-Rangers defense both from their d-men and forwards has vastly improved from the regular season. They took that next step that we knew they could but haven't done in ages. Of course we still have the occasional boneheaded mistakes from Staal and Holden but the rest including G have been surprisingly good.
-No turtle. The games were close but when the Rangers got the lead they didn't turtle like in the past. They keep attacking and you knew they'd win with a 1 goal lead. I was barely nervous in the 3rd last night.
Live forever or die trying.

they definitely kept the pressure on with the lead which was nice to see (although I was still plenty nervous). couldnt agree more about nash and hank. staal still scares me a ton. Huge liability
