I know it's not NHL, but a horrible accident occurred in Saskatchewan that killed 14 people in a junior hockey team.

14 people?! Heard about this last night, but christ!

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

Nice night tonight. Only 3 games to kick off the playoffs, but great energy/atmosphere. Winnipeg fought hard to win against the Wild. Pens crushed the Flyers. And the hype. The hype in Vegas. Lol. They just scored as I am typing. Great crowds all around, but the scene in Las Vegas was the craziest.

The Flyers didn't even bother showing up today.

Crosby’s first goal tonight was unreal.

Boston 5-1 Toronto: Was not expecting the game to be this lopsided. Toronto had a poor penalty kill and that was what cost them.
Washington loses game 1, could be (actually probably) another disappointing exit.

. Having trouble linking something.

3 goals in 3 minutes for Tampa Bay against New Jersey, and I actually predicted New Jersey to win this series.
