Just opened up the scoreboard for the first time tonight and laughed.

Every time I think something is 100% certain, we get another reminder that nothing is certain. This is even worse than the Predators sweeping the Blackhawks in the first round...way worse.

This is LITERALLY the first three game losing streak the Lightning have had all season. The last such streak they had was March 24-29, 2018.

And just like 2 years ago when I had Chicago in my playoff pool, Tampa Bay was my primary pick this go-around. Also like 2 years ago I had a choice at the very end between Columbus and Dallas and I took Dallas because I figured Columbus had zero chance.

This is equal parts hilarity and table-flipping rage.

My +8 and my +6 are both down in their series 3-0.

"lol" me

My +8 and +1 are the only ones looking bad, but I will of course accept a playoff series win as "punishment"

Tampa losing won't really affect the contest much. We all picked them. 10 people picked +8, the other 3 picked them +7, lol. 1 point swing at most.

Islanders/Pittsburgh is probably the series with the most disagreement and most potential to move the needle.

Oh huh. I know this tends to happen a lot but in my bracket with my friends I have Dallas making the Finals but I picked Nashville at +3 in the first round here. I've never accidentally made different picks between leagues before, interesting!

I just saw that

Ovechkin's a ****ing beast apparently.

According to HockeyFights.com, Ovechkin has fought only four times in his NHL career -- and not since 2010.

Maybe this kid just reminded us why tbqh.

Dallas really needs to get it together and win this game. So far they're playing a classic "dominate and lose anyway because your normally good goalie was weak AF" style game...

If you are a big Oilers fan Winnipeg should be your default secondary team based on the fact that the city of Winnipeg donated money to help the Edmonton Investors Group keep the Oilers in Edmonton.

Also if you have Alberta pride, the conservatives should be the last group of politicians you should vote for, their platform this year is pretty much based solely on doing as much damage to the general public as possible.

IfGodCouldDie just summarized my thoughts pretty well.

The only thing more disgusting than cheering for a rival team is bringing politics into a sports topic when no one asked to hear about it, especially when it's objectively the worst opinion to have.

We could be 10 hours away from Tampa being out. It feels so weird.

I thought Colorado might win 2 but I just don't think they'll have enough in them to win the series. I will say though that Calgary seems a bit shakier than I expected, but my only debate with them was +6 or +7.

Also I don't know Canadian politics but I can tell you to vote for Batman.

That's begging for a reverse sweep so hard why would you do this

Especially after Tampa broke out in that third period and you barely survived to begin with.

If you look at the fight, Ovechkin lands a clean shot that staggers him and at that point he's already done.

Ovechkin then nails him again with a similar punch and puts him down.

Dude fights for real tbqh

Like I know there's been heavy favourites that lost UFC matches, I know there's 3-0 series leads where they lose 4-3, but this. Good god, this.

It wasn't a hot goalie stonewalling them or a few fluky bounces that didn't go Tampa's way, they got throughly and utterly dominated by Columbus ever since the second period of Game 1. This is an all-time collapse.
