Carolina 3, Buffalo 3 (end of the 2nd period)

With full props to the Diaw-fest taking place on TNT, there might not be a playoff game in any sport (AFL included) played at as frantic a pace as tonight’s Stanley Cup semi-final, a contest that should go a long way to determining who gets to play the Oilers of the beer-deprived city of Edmonton.

With the Hurricanes trailing 3-1 in the 2nd period, Peter Laviolette pulled goaltender Martin Gerber (above) in favor of Cam Ward. I have no problem with this move, but Frank Robinson is simply beside himself.
