And shit's already getting crazy.
Last night the Flyers delivered a huge upset to the Penguins, coming back from a 3-0 deficit to win in overtime.
The Preds won last night, too, against the Detroit Red Wings and as great as that victory feels, it was tainted a bit by Shea Weber's insane move in the last second of the game. He grabbed Henrik Zetterberg's head and slammed it into the glass. TWICE.
Why, Shea? WHY?
Zetterberg's helmet was cracked but, thankfully, his head is okay. All Weber has said about the incident is: "I'm just glad he didn't get hurt." Hockey blogs buzzed with the possibility and likelihood of suspension, but this afternoon NHL disciplinarian Brendan Shanahan decided to fine Weber $2,500.
I'm sure there will be some retaliation come game two tomorrow. In other Red Wings news, Helm is out for the rest of the playoffs after suffering lacerated tendons in is forearm. He cut his arm on Alexander Radulov's skate. OUCH.
Also: The Canucks lost 4-2 and right wing Byron Bitz will face a disciplinary hearing today for his hit against Kyle Clifford.
