Why I Love The Stanley Cup Playoffs

So, in the Western Conference semifinals, the #1 seed Vancouver Canucks had held the #5 seed Nashville Predators scoreless for 119 minutes when – justlikethat – Nashville scored a fluke goal to send Game 2 into overtime.

Then Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne sent it into double overtime with a series of acrobatic how’d-he-do-dat? saves.

Then Rinne made some more (15 saves in regulation, 18 in overtime).

Then the Predators (bad name, good team) scored at 14:51 of the second overtime period.

Sweet.
