Apparently, the Iroquois...

...called lacross the little brother of war. I wonder what this should be called?
"Goals, fights, raised emotions, more than three dozen penalties, and 20,000 orange-clad fans chanting highlighted a wild Sunday afternoon at Wells Fargo Center. The Battle of Pennsylvania has never been like this; never this fierce, never this intense.

The latest installment might also be over Wednesday.

Philadelphia is one game away from a sweep following its 8-4 victory over Pittsburgh in Game 3, one that included 158 penalty minutes on 38 penalties. There was a match penalty assessed to Arron Asham, game misconducts given to Kris Letang, Kimmo Timonen and Craig Adams, and four players received 10-minute misconducts in the last five minutes of the third period.

There were also three fights that highlighted a pair of melees, one in the first and another late in the third."
Meh!! That's why this Canuck doesn't much like hockey. I'd much prefer watching real skill on the ice. Bring back Gordie Howe:

PS: I didn't even know the Stanley Cup playoffs were on. I liked it better when there were only six teams and the games were played in cold weather Northern Cities. Grumble. Grumble. Grumble.
