    It's like people said when the Saints got jobbed in the NFC title game, teams have to overcome bad calls. Fluery was flopping all over the place the last 10 minutes and overtime.

    So back to the original thing I meant to argue (before I went full Sharks fan. Never go full Sharks fan. I'm not even really a Sharks fan and I went full Sharks fan) it was an ugly hit. And ugly as in hard to look at and not the kind of thing you want to see. Not ugly as in dirty, but ugly.

    Hearing about Vegas fans crying about a bad call, a bad loss - that city was built on bad beats. Welcome to pro sports.

    I get a major penalty puts teams in a position to have done to them what Vegas had done to them, but giving up four goals in less than 4 minutes is 100 percent on that team. You let the call dictate the action rather than you dictating the action.

    Exactly. Every shot San Jose took during the power play, in. At times, you gotta suck it up and play hockey.

    One of the players likened it to the no-call in the NFC title game. Well, maybe, But still, you just coughed up a 3-0 lead. And you had several opportunites in regulation at OT to win that weren't converted.

    Wherever you read/heard that, did it say who the other team to do it was? I’m going to guess Blues vs. Canucks, 1998 or 1999.

    I think I saw in a wire story it was a game MTM referenced uptopic.

    Good piece by Ray Ratto on last night's playoff craziness

    Two monumentally stunning things in two different sports happened more or less simultaneously, it was two wonders to behold, and they’re more remarkable if you take them as a single unit of joy that both basketball and hockey fans can share. In a world that works very hard every day to shove happiness in a weighted burlap bag and head out to sea, forgetting your affinity to one sport or the other and combining them as a magnificent whole is the best solution.

    So to the Blazers and Damian Lillard, and the Sharks and Barclay Goodrow, and all the other players on each team who helped propel us to those two ridiculous moments, thanks. You did the deeds that make this sports thing even moderately worthwhile, and reminded the animals of the earth that while they will inherit whatever we don’t blow up, waste or irradiate in the next 100 years, we’re taking games like these with us.
