The new playoff format is bizarre.

Not a fan.

I like the old format too. Easier to understand. There will not be any reseeding this year either with the new format after the conference quarterfinals.

Nothing better than the NHL playoffs - even with the change in format.  And best of all are the game 7s

The NHL needs to find a way to make regular season games more like the playoffs.  Obviously there are factors that are beyond their control like the stakes and the fact that play improves naturally through the season, but maybe officiating would be one area? Note sure?  maybe there are others, but playoff hockey definitely rocks. I love the NHL, so I am not criticizing, but its a tough tv sport, which puts it at a disadvantage in the US anyway, so anything they can do to keep growing/improving an already good product cant be bad.

Just check out the site or maybe like them on Facebook . .  or Share the site on Facebook, re-tweet one of their tweets.  Not everyone can give money to support this great cause, but its easy to give 10 seconds of your time to help spread the word about The Children\\\\\\\'s Cancer Center

TV sucks for it.  I won't be able to watch either of the 1st two playoff games on TV because I'm not in the Tampa market.

Blows.

It's only game one but they need to play better than they did last night. I liked the intensity, the passion, but they need to play smarter.D played like **CENSORED**. They can bounce back tomorrow.

I wish the Lightning would of played like the Kings are doing now. Down 3-0 and now forcing a game 7. Good for them.
