07:13 AM ET 05.07 | Kevin Bieksa displayed quite a transition game Monday, turning the "embellisher" label on the Sharks' Logan Couture -- who cracked wise at the accusation -- and Joe Thornton. "Couture has been snapping his head back and this isn't my opinion, the evidence is in the video," continued Bieksa. "Hank (Henrik Sedin) touches him off the face-off and he does a full back arch and goes flying off in the corner." ... Bieksa was just getting warmed up. Next up, Jumbo Joe. "Thornton takes his glove off (on a phantom Dan Hamhuis slash) and shakes his hand and draws a huge 5-on-3 for them," added the blueliner. "Those are two Canadian guys who are supposed to be playing the game with integrity. Maybe our team has to do more of that."

Oh yeah, and right off the face-off after the 4th B's goal one of the Leafs gets a stick in the arm and throws himself down with both feet off the ice. That was sad.

Guess you missed the Russian on the Caps going down like he was shot and drawing a penalty. What happened? No diving calls in the Playoffs????

You guys kiss his pickle, but I say send that POS back to Russia.

Maybe the Canucks need to spend time on fundamentals, like scoring goals and such.

I dunno I stopped watching when I realized the fifth goal was about to go in. But JVR has been one of, if not the best player in the series. Not sure why all the negativity towards him.

Because the Flyers Management doesnt want to admit their mistake. After sending Carter and Richards packing, Fly boy nation annointed him with the organization...the next coming of Bobby Clark. Kid was barely 19, then he doesnt produce to their expectations and they ship him off to Toronto for the next Watson brothers

Nope. Got that one. But I thought it was only one dude in the NHL that embellished? Hmm. Heard (but didn't see) a ton of that **** was going on in that game last night by both sides. Gonna happen...real bad in the playoffs.

Send him back to Russia COD.

Really? You're that desparate to criticize the Flyers? DL was responding to Rex, who I can assure you is not a Flyers fan so not sure how Flyers management factors into Rex's criticism of JVR.

Soon very soon. Hopefully, before it destroys Cap-Nation.
