Monday's Dump & Chase: Fight Club

USA TODAY Sports

Yeah, the playoffs have been intense. But for fans of hockey AND bare-knuckle boxing, you got a real treat in Ottawa last night.

And now this series, which I didn't care about really at all, has become must-watch television. Can't wait for Game 4.

Your Call: Which Goalie Starts In Game 4? - Nucks Misconduct

My call? Luongo should start so when they get swept, they can pin it on him and him alone. Even though that's not the reason they're going home early this year.
