Notes from the evening:

- I really, REALLY wish Toronto had faced Montreal in the first round.

- Sidney Crosby is awesome.

- Is there anyone in the west that can seriously challenge Chicago?

- Tie game, two outs, bottom of the 10th, man on second, and the Jays decide to intentionally walk someone. And then accidentally walk someone. And then accidentally walk someone else to end the game. I fucking hate intentional walks.

- How does the NBA have ZERO games scheduled this early in the playoffs?

It's last Friday's fault. Four game 6s with prospective game 7s on Sunday. When all of those series ended last Friday the NBA needed somebody to play on their Sunday showcase so the Thunder-Grizz and Knicks-Pacers started their series on only one day rest. They've been going every other day for 4-5 games straight and the NBA decided to give them extra time on a travel day since they gained extra time when all those game 7s fell through. Friday's fault.

I thought the Bulls played in the East. You can't be talking about the Blackhawks, since they aren't likely to make it out of the next round whether they get the Sharks or Red Wings.
