Boston will destroy the Habs.

 

I'm hoping the Sharks do work and end the damn series already!

How was that a beautiful series?  It was nothing but rule bending and head hunting by the hawks in game 2.  I'll admit St. Louis got lucky with the 2 wins they got.  Bickel should have been out for 3 games after the knee on knee, Kane should have had something happen after all the high sticking and cross checking he got away with and Seabrook should have got 5 and not 3.  Hell the officials let things go for both sides and that has been said to have been the series with the least amount of calls and the calls that were made nothing but bullshit.  Hell they called offsides after St. Louis had the puck in Chicago's attack zone.  The officials let what could have been the best series in the playoffs get so out of hand.  Sucks St. Louis lost, but the officiating for both sides in that series sucked and I never thought I'd see the day that I'd want Shanahan back on player safety.

How was that a beautiful series?

 

Because the Blues and Hawks are both excellent teams? Because the whole series was a damn-near tied score the entire time? The Blues scored with less than 2 minutes left in Game 1 to force an OT and with less than 10 seconds left in Game 2 to force an OT - winning both games. The Hawks came back to even the series up with a shutout by Crawford and a beautiful goal by Kane. The series showcased great players from both sides - Tarasenko, Oshie, Toews, Kane. Crawford showed that he may be a better goalie than people give him credit for.

 

I've learned some time ago that you can't control officiating. Hell, I already put way too much passion into a game that I have absolutely no control over - I can't use anymore energy on what calls are being made and not being made. In your life as a sports fan, you will have calls that will go your teams way and you will have calls that completely Fuck  your team over. Didn't the Rangers get screwed over yesterday by that early whistle call? How about that bad call last year that denied Hjalmarsson's goal? Seabrook should have gotten 5 and not 3? Debatable, but let's not forgot that the Hawks won the three games that Seabrook was suspended so would it have made a difference? Let's say Kane get's a few more penalty calls...would that have made a difference? I think the Blues only scored on, what, 2 of 25+ power plays?

 

I never blame the officials on the outcome of a best of 7 game series. That is one of the reasons it's a 7 game series. In the end, the better team won. The Blues lacked offense and Miller wasn't the difference maker he needed to be. The defending Stanley Cup champs showed what makes them so great.

Thats my final prediction and it will be wrong. I'm rooting for the Sharks the whole way though.

Blues and Hawks always have a good game.  It's just for me the lack of calls and the timing of calls that were made killed this series.  I guess the way I see it is this could have been such a better series.

I'm an Avs fan, and as much as I want to make excuses, it was a good series. Regardless of a player being injured, they won as a team, and they lost as a team. There were definitely some bad defensive plays that allowed Minnesota to score. Good back-and-forth game. I just wish they had won, making it worth staying up to 1AM.

As an Avs fan myself, that seems like a lame excuse.  One player is not going to be able to fend off games like 3 & 4 where Minnesota was getting as many as 5x the amount of shots per period as the Avs.  The only real excuse that could be thrown out there is the "what if" of if the refs had made the right call on that delay of game against Minnesota  at the end of game 4.

 

But sadly, as a great philosopher in a movie once said, "Wish in one hand, shit in the other, see which fills up first".

After that last game, I have a little more confidence in the Hawks. But either way, it's going to be a tough series. I'd like to see the Hawks win it all for no reason other than I actually have time to watch the games now. :)

Little late but the teams I predict will advance are: Kings (boo), Blackhawks (meh), Bruins (boo), Pens (meh).

 

I liked how NYR scored two goals in overtime yesterday.

Bryz has Sonic characters on his mask. Is he a gamer or a furry?

At any rate, as much as I love the Wild, they're not a cup winner yet. They need another Suter so he doesn't play 28+ minutes and more stability in goal.

As much as I hate to agree I'm thinking the same.  That's why now that round one is over I really haven't watched as much as I thought I would.  I just can't get into the playoffs knowing it's going to be the same teams again.  I'd really like to see Anaheim win it, so if they can advance then I might start watching again.

So, the Predators just hired Peter Laviolette to be the team's second head coach ever. I guess he's probably as good as anybody else they could have gotten. Barry Trotz meant a lot to the team, but honestly, I'm glad to see him go. He legitimately botched this season thanks to his mismanagement of Pekka Rinne the last few years.

 

He played in 64 games in 2010-2011 and 73 in 2011-2012. Then, he played 2012-2013 hurt almost the entire year, until his hip finally gave out. Trotz noticed none of this and seemed content to just ride him into the ground. After hip surgery and a freak infection, Rinne ends up missing 2/3 of this season. Even if it was just a coincidence and bad luck, the team needs a spark. And a new coach is probably the right call.

 

Edit - I should also add, the Laviolette hiring is interesting considering how much the Preds have struggled to score the past few years. Something has to give there, haha.

I found it odd that they picked him up after being let go by the Flyers.  Hell I forgot he was let go after the 3rd game of the year.

 

Off season is going to be interesting.  I'm wanting to see who is still let go from teams and who the teams pick up.  Also the trades could be interesting with UFA and RFA.  I'm sure it's just reddit fans talking but I have seen on there talks about Paul Stastny and/or Phil Kessel being looked at by St. Louis.  After Miller going 12-12-1 I'm wondering if the rumors going around about St. Louis not even wanting to bother resigning him are true.  Armstrong has already said Allen is coming up next year and will be battling for starts.  With the playoffs looking like its going to come down to the same 4 teams I'm not even interested.  This is the first time I have ever wanted the summer to go by quick.

I wonder what NBC would do if it was a Habs/Wild final. Pierre McG wouldn't have much to say without wiping the Crosby off his chin and after shitting on the wild in every intermission report, Milbury will be eating crow the whole time.

The Wild played a Hell of a series. They are a couple players away from being a cup contender. They also need some damn luck cause they had zero this game or in the series for that matter. They outplayed us tonight for sure.

 

Either way, I love this damn team! Looking forward to the games tomorrow.

I really hope that Anaheim can eliminate LA and move on to eliminate Chicago.  At least changes have been made in the east so that it wont be the same 2 teams playing for that conference.  I'm hoping that Montreal can win tonight.  I'll be willing to watch a Montreal and New York Rangers series.  Boston wins then I'm not going to bother till the final series unless it's yet again Boston and Chicago.  I'm really hoping for it to come down to Anaheim and Montreal or Anaheim and New York Rangers.

Price out for the series. Budaj will take his place and it will be his first real series in which he has started. Wonder if thiswill make the series more chippy. Really enjoyed the game yesterday. Really could have gone either way.

It's safe to say, I honestly stopped watching now that Price is hurt. I don't care about the west with the Kings and Hawks. Of course, I hated the Rangers long before the St. Louis trade, but having him there adds more fuel to the fire. Habs knocked out the Lightning in a sweep. So yeah, I'm hoping the Habs make a comeback but then again, damn Canadian team I don't want to see win a cup. I would have loved to see the Ducks win as a great send off for Teemu.
