NHL Playoff Observations -- Wednesday (24th)

Just a few things that caught my eye: Maxim Lapierre pulled a Matt Cooke, except Patrick Sharp wasn't hurt. But is it really any different? And should he still have been in the game late in the second when he notched the tying goal? Discuss. Paul Martin, postseason leading scorer. WTF? Seriously -- check the list.

It was like the s-l-o-w m-o-t-i-o-n demise of one of the best seasons in franchise history, falling into pieces gradually because of fatigue or injuries or some cruel voodoo black magic from a witch...

Maxim Lapierre Thinks He’s Ryan Miller, Makes Game-Saving Block in OT

During the first overtime of Thursday night’s Game 1 of the Blackhawks vs. Blues series, Maxim Lapierre saved the game for St. Louis when Ryan Miller was down and out. Lapierre, who got pushed into the crease by Brandon Saad, happened to be in position when Kris Versteeg fired a shot on the Notes’ empty net. Acting like Ryan Miller, he made the save like a warrior.

Playing just well enough to get by won't cut it for Blues

ST. LOUIS -- Is it time to be worried yet? The fans that stayed away from the Blues' game against the visiting Sabres on Thursday night probably got off lucky. Maybe it was the threat of severe storms rolling through the bi-state area or maybe a few thousand locals just really wanted to stay home and watch the American Idol results show. Whatever the case, they can consider themselves...

Maxim Lapierre Suspended For Five Games

In my opinion, this suspension isn't long enough. I would have liked to have seen Maxim Lapierre get a longer suspension. When are the players going to learn, you can't make these hits.
