St. Louis is gonna be more difficult than either of them, I'd think. I'm glad SJ won because Vegas was tougher for us, precisely because they had Fluery.

I think the ref just saw the blood all over the ice, and the head wound, and bumped it up from a 2 minute minor because of that (and maybe to prevent the Sharks from trying to retaliate). In the spur of the moment, I think it's a bad call but not a ridiculous call, especially when you have a guy bleeding from the head, and you never know if Eakin and the Knights were given multiple warnings about that stuff beforehand that they ignored.

Vegas was the only Western team that we absolutely had no chance in hell of beating, so I'm glad they're out.

He didn't bump up the call. There was no call at all. He made up the call because of the injury.

They actually didn't look that good to me, giving up a constant stream of amazing chances to the Sharks that did not all look hard-earned.

This was only exceeded by the number of amazing chances the Sharks defense gave to Vegas.

That too. But mainly because I like inconsistency and chaos and butthurt fans.

The game winning goal seemed really stoppable to me. I don't know why Fluery couldn't track that move.

It's true, but I would've been happy either way. Had SJ lost they would've clawed their way back only to lose in the end, which would also be hilarious.

Also, watched the replay of the injury and you can see him do the fencing response thing.

That was not a very good call on Eakin. I think the refs get eliminated from future games if they blow calls, though. That ref and the ref from Game 6 of the Stars / Predators should both be out.

That was a deserved major penalty in my opinion.

Not even doing a bit here, that was a cross check straight to his face. It was the correct call.

Eakin's stick never touches his face. He cross checked his chest and shoulders. Pavelski's helmet hit his face on impact with the ice is what it looks like to me.

Eakin's check wasn't even what caused him to hit the ice. It knocked him off balance, then the secondary collision knocked him down.

So he cross checked him, just not in the head. Cross checking is still a penalty.

Pavelski should’ve gotten a delay of game penalty for being so bleedy.

Sure, a two minute penalty.

Cross checks happen and are not called dozens of times every game and never called in faceoff circle. That said,Vegas needed to suck it up, fight through it and play some defense.

Or they could just start calling it all the time and stop the practice.

I just want some *fargin'* consistency for *f-bomb*'s sake. It shouldn't matter when it happens. Either always call it or never call it.

An egregious missed call right there. That puck was clearly shot out of play in the defensive zone.

The refs would have called it if it had been a ginger rat committing the penalty.
