I'm... Speechless. San Jose, forget I said anything bad about you. Los Angeles... Fucking really? Second highest lead ever relinquished in Stanley Cup Playoffs history. I hope you're proud of yourselves.

San Jose, why can you never do anything in the playoffs? It's 4-0 Kings just 45 seconds into the start of the second period. Niemi, I love you for being the goaltender for the Blackhawks' Stanley Cup win last year, but seriously, you're better than this.Ah, but look now, sir, it is 5-5.
Probably the main reason why the Kings aren't going to get too far in the playoffs, especially if they give up a massive lead like that. In a similar fashion, the Bruins gave up a 3-0 game lead to the Flyers, and still couldn't finish the deal, as far as chokes in the playoffs go, going up 3-0 in a series and then losing the series is the ultimate choke job.
As for Detroit and Phoenix, well you might as well turn out the lights on this one, because this series is over, considering that the Coyotes played pretty flat, and have no sense of urgency in their own home. The only thing that would be interesting about the series now is that Detroit can score 4 goals again.
