Lot’s of great plays and fights (Edit: added fight from end of Blues/Sharks game) from all the playoff hockey this weekend but my favorite is this great play by T.J. Oshie who takes the puck up ice, dodges two checkers like Neo in the Matrix, then dekes another one to set up a David Backes goal.
Thanks to hockeyfights.com:
The NHL playoffs begin tonight. Time to start your playoff beards gentlemen.
More NHL Playoffs:
- 1st Round Schedule
- The NHL and NBC took baby steps this year to increase the number of games you’ll be able to see but archaic broadcast rights rules still plague the NHL Playoffs, making some teams and games difficult or impossible to see depending on your cable/satellite provider and geographic location.
- You can watch the first four Blues games for free at select Wehrenberg theaters in St. Louis. Besides the novelty I’m not sure why you wouldn’t just go to a sports bar though.
- 1st Round series to watch: Predators vs. Red Wings
