In the spirit of the NHL madness that’s happened over the past week, we decided it made sense to drop in the top 10 NHL goals of all time. These guys are good.

Chicago Bulls 93 – Miami Heat 86

The Cardiac Kids are at it again. The Miami Heat looked a little rusty and the Bulls capitalized down in south beach to take game one of the conference semi-finals. It’s not uncommon for teams that swept in the first round to lose game 1 after being well-rested. LeBron James finished with 24 points and 8 rebounds after being announced as the NBA MVP for the third time in his career.

The Bulls grit and post-presence allowed them to win a slug-fest in Miami. Nate Robinson continued his successful and flamboyant post season run with several clutch baskets down the stretch that put the game on ice late in the fourth quarter. Game 2 is May 8th 7:00PM EST

New York Rangers 4 – Washington Capitals 3 (WSH Leads 2-1)

Days after Braden Holtby claimed that the Rangers made his shutout in game 2 look very easy, the boys in blue clawed back to take game three of the series. Don’t be surprised if this game is the turning point of the series as the Rangers will have game 4 at home before they return to Washington.

The game was back and forth for most of the second and third period. Anytime the Rangers scored the Capitals had an answer. The contest was put on ice (not literally) when Derek Stepan lit the lamp late in the 3rd period. The emotional toil settled back in at the end of the third period as Washington was on a power play and also pulled their goalie. The 6-4 matchup continued for the final 1:54 of regulation with Ranger fans finally taking a breath after a last minute march by the Capitals.

The Rangers look to even the series at MSG on May 8th at 7:30 EST

 3. Capitals 1 Rangers 0 (OT)

 

Mike Green scored in overtime  to put the Capitals up 2-0 in the series. The Ranger’s offense has been anemic up to this point. They’ve scored one goal, which was off a skate deflection in game 1. Nash will assistance and the Rangers will have to get back to their blue-collared style of play to have a prayer in this series against Ovechkin and his Caps.

 

2. Bulls 99 Nets 93 – Bulls win in 7

 

After finding out that several key players had the flu and were sidelined for at least one game, Thibodeau rallies his boys to a series victory in the Barclay’s Center. Earlier in the week Thibodeau said ‘we perfer not to make excuses’ when asked of his team’s inconvenient bout with the flu. The cardiac kid Nate Robinson along with a rag-tag cast of others  marched into Brooklyn and knocked out a more talented team in a winner-take-all contest. Carlesimo is ousted as the Nets are left scrambling to find out where things went wrong and will likely look to more veteran leadership in the future.

 

1. Senators 6 Canadiens 1


Ottawa leads series 2-1. It’s hard to figure out whether this was a hockey game or a series of boxing matches. The battle in Canada has lived up to all expectations so far as these teams vie for a chance in the second round of the NHL playoffs. The rookie Jean-Gabriel Pageau netted a hat trick and also lost a tooth in what will likely be the most exciting series in the first round of the NHL payoffs.
