Two days in, and the Cup chase is heartbreaking.
New York 4, Philadelphia 1 – Win or lose, I don’t think anyone expected either of these teams to be manhandled in game 1.
Colorado 5, Minnesota (OT) – Paul Stastny, ruiner of worlds, scored the game tying and game winning goal. The game tying goal came with 15 seconds left. Dispiriting.
St. Louis 4, Chicago 3 (3OT) – Again, this would have been solved so much more swiftly with a shootout. Great 2 games worth of action.
San Jose 6, Los Angeles 3 – The level of snarky tweets looks to be way down this season if this keeps up.
Tweet of the Moment
Pietrangelo played 44:08 in Game 1. It was the fourth-most by a Blue behind MacInnis (45:28) and Pronger (51:10, 48:22). #WeAllBleedBlue

That’s a lot of ice time. Everyone is going to be so gassed when this series is over.
