NHL may alter playoff schedule

The NHL is considering the idea of altering the aforementioned weird playoff schedule. If Detroit and Pittsburgh wrap up their respected series by this Wednesday, then Game One will begin on May 30. Click to read the full report on ESPN.com. Thanks to user AmandaKT for the heads up.

Crosby and Malkin to start Game 3 together

So says Canadian journalist Elliotte Friedman via Twitter (of all places). Friedman also says Pens defenseman Kris Letang will play...Guess they popped that shoulder right back in its socket, eh? (hat-tip The Confluence)

Crosby post-game thoughts

"When it comes down to it they got a big goal there on the power play when it counted, and that's the difference. I don't see anything else but that. We had opportunities, I mean, the last two games we can honestly say we did some really good things but we made a few mistakes that have hurt us. That can be a good thing to look at as well, knowing that we're that close and these are things that we can easily and change quickly. But we have to do that." DC Sports Bog (who noted that Crosby "complained" about hats being thrown on the ice after they cleaned up the initial wave after Alex Ovechkin's hat trick...Can't diss Crosby, there was a significant delay in the game and obviously he wanted to get back out on the ice and answer)

Sidney Crosby is scared of Philadelphia

BIG, BAD Sidney Crosby is scared of Philadelphia. With the Pittsburgh Penguins Philly-bound the Flyers need to get the home ice advantage. When the Penguins invade the Wachovia Center for Games 3 and 4 it is imperative that the 20,000-strong Orange Crush pounce on Crosby like a lion on prey. Crosby went on record in December that Philadelphia is the worst place for him to play. Earlier this season "Sid the Kid" described his past Philadelphia experiences as "vicious." With that knowledge the Flyers faithful need to get into his head like usual.

Miss the game? Catch the replay

Props to Coolman from Die by the Blade for giving this heads-up during the game thread last night. Apparently Center Ice is replaying games throughout the night in case you missed the action live. Pretty cool feature if you ask me. Check out the press release.
