NHL Playoffs
 
This place use to be NHL big? Ducks and Sharks were a fight daily? Meh....

Avs just went top of the Central tonight!!! Wow...crazy turnaround!

So Stanley Cup prediction?

canucked 04-11-2014 11:54 AM

Go Oilers...oh right, forgot. At least there is a big defencemen up for grabs in this years draft.

Shout out to Ryan Smyth who will announce his retirement today. Fan favorite and hero of Edmonton. An everyday hoser if there ever was one.

Playoffs are very tricky in the West.

A week ago i would have said St. Louis but now who knows, I don't consider anyone in the West a true "underdog". Boston is the clear choice in the East.

I'm going to say Dallas vs.Detroit, just so that everyone thinks i'm brilliant.

Seguin basically won me our office pool this year, i'm slated to collect a cool 60 bucks...lol

fence_sence 04-11-2014 1:07 PM

Go Flyers! Berube has been a godsend.

deuce 04-11-2014 1:07 PM

Enjoyed Ryan Smyths' 2 years with the Avs, all around good cat.

fence_sence 04-13-2014 12:30 AM

Bring on the Rangers!

alindquist 04-13-2014 12:59 PM

Go wild!!!

deuce 04-13-2014 6:20 PM

Unfortunately, Ducks won last night....tonight would have been for #1 in the West.

Roy is a shoe in for the Jack Adams

Varlamov a coin flip for Vezina

Mackinnon should win Calder easily

He'll of a run for the Avs...

deuce 04-13-2014 7:42 PM

Avs vs Minny in round 1.

The SJ vs LA & Chicago vs STL...crazy good first round match ups.

That's how I see it going down. I'm on the fence about the Kings Sharks series though. I still think Quick is the best tender in the game. After the Olympics failure, I see him as hungry.

I think Berube has to get at least some consideration for the Adams trophy. The Flyers were a wreck at the start of the season.

stephan 04-14-2014 1:54 PM

Stoked for the playoffs to start. Ducks have been playing well, just need to figure out who will be in goal. Go Ducks!

deuce 04-18-2014 1:50 PM

First 2 days have been AWESOME!

Added bonus, the Avs coming from 2 down to get to OT & then winning it!

fence_sence 04-18-2014 3:09 PM

Briere in overtime the other night was a madman.

The Flyers kinda self destructed in the 3rd last night. The new kid, Akeson, got a little too fired up. He's a gamer though. He's got speed, skill and sense. I like what I've seen. That double minor was a killer though. I still think (hope) they are gonna win the series though. They need to kill the NY monkey on their back.

deuce 04-18-2014 8:57 PM

Datsyuk is *****in filthy....

deuce 04-19-2014 4:00 PM

Wow, 'Hawks snatch a loss from Victory. Poor decision by Seabrook to blow up Backes....and will probably cost him game 3. Too many penalties for the 'Hawks, need to be more deciplined if they want to get back in this.

fence_sence 04-20-2014 8:44 AM

That Seabrook hit was gnarly. Backes was clearly rocked.

You gotta love playoff hockey. I don't even care who's playing (ya, right). The games are just that good.

deuce 04-30-2014 10:25 PM

Avs meltdown... Frustrated, which sucks...because they shouldn't have been here. Success breeds expectations.... Ugh, tough night... 4 leads & still lose game 7...

fence_sence 04-30-2014 11:45 PM

Well F! Flyers done. That sucks big fat Donkey D.

wakereviews 05-01-2014 6:45 AM

Good for the Blackhawks, the Wild should be tired going into the game tomorrow (i hope).

Headed to MN today, so I'll be watching somewhere that i'm sure i'll be in the minority. However, I suspect we'll be seeing a bunch of this tonight Nick.http://cheertheanthem.com/wp-content...Hawks-Wild.jpg

sidekicknicholas 05-02-2014 8:29 AM

^ Shoot me a call or text if you want to meet up and grab a beer for the game.

I'll PM you my number.

wakereviews 05-05-2014 6:55 AM

Chicago is looking pretty tough so far Nick - sorry didn't get your PM till this morning. Was in Hutchinson picking up my MB.

wakebrdr94 05-05-2014 7:14 AM

Kings tonight again in Anaheim. GKG!

deuce 05-05-2014 8:51 AM

Still sort of smarting from the Avs losing.... Having a hard time getting behind another team. Maybe the Kings or 'Hawks...

sidekicknicholas 05-05-2014 11:03 AM

This Wild v. Blackhawks series is killing me!

Its the "hope" the Wild bring be bringing to a one goal game in the 3rd .... then just farting it away.... hopefully home ice will help, but probably not.

deuce 05-06-2014 12:47 PM

Last night was fun... The Ducks vs Kings series is worth staying up late for, so far.

sidekicknicholas 05-07-2014 7:51 AM

Last night game me some hope that the Wild can hang in there. Crazy that home ice is making this much of a difference.

wakereviews 05-07-2014 11:09 AM

Couldn't believe Kane couldn't get his stick on the puck after juking the Wild goalie with approx 6 min left. that would have definitely changed the game a bit. But either way, good win for the Wild.

wakereviews 05-12-2014 7:35 AM

Wild are playing tough, this one is still up in the air.

Agreed! I think home ice will win it for the Blackhawks though.

fence_sence 05-12-2014 9:10 AM

Apparently home ice means a loss if you play in L.A.

deuce 05-13-2014 5:45 PM

Though no Ducks fan, at this point I'm pulling for them. I'll be in the area later in the month, if they can keep winning, I'm going to go to a game.

Pens better pick it up...

sidekicknicholas 05-14-2014 7:30 AM

Good run Wild!

.... I really thought they were going to get a goal in that first 2/3 minutes of OT, they had so many shots. Oh well, great series by the Hawks, when they're on I don't know if anyone is beating them.

wakereviews 05-14-2014 11:21 AM

Crawford saved the day last night. I can't believe how many chances the Wild had that he stopped.

fence_sence 05-29-2014 9:53 AM

What a game last night! Every puck was played like it was the last puck ever. You gotta love playoff hockey.

ottog1979 05-29-2014 10:13 AM

^X2. Kings are going to take it (all).

deuce 05-29-2014 1:34 PM

Agree, stinking AWESOME game! I'm in Anaheim for work, watched it at the bar with a bunch of Kings fans....one guy with a Toews jersey.

Can't wait to watch the Habs beat NYR tonight!!!

fence_sence 05-30-2014 12:44 AM

^^^Oops.

Incredible game. I'm just rooting for for game sevens at this point but, I'll take that game 6 as a series ender. Epic battles the whole time.

wakereviews 05-30-2014 6:27 AM

Blackhawks come from 3-1 down to win the series and take the Cup!

aces6692 05-30-2014 10:39 AM

^^ definitely not!! GKG!!!!!

deuce 06-01-2014 8:36 PM

What a great series!!!

Now let's hope the Kings can beat the NYR!

ottog1979 06-01-2014 9:57 PM

Like I said, Kings all the way!

aces6692 06-01-2014 10:37 PM

Yess!!!!!! Go Kings Go!!!!

wakereviews 06-02-2014 5:50 AM

Damn! Drove 3 hours each way to go to the game last night. Kings just skated harder in OT. Good series

chillinoj 06-02-2014 9:13 AM

Nothing like game 7 in overtime! cant wait for the finals. Dont really care who wins, but pulling for some more OT action :)

deuce 06-05-2014 5:24 AM

What a great game last night!!! I love playoff hockey!

95sn 06-05-2014 2:14 PM

Playoff hockey is freakin GREAT! Go Kings

ottog1979 06-05-2014 2:41 PM

Yeah, Game 1 DELIVERED! How could it get more entertaining/exciting than that?!

95sn 06-05-2014 5:12 PM

Well it could go to a game 7 AND overtime. Oh yeah, did that already too.

aces6692 06-09-2014 6:09 PM

What a first period! .6 seconds left with Carter's goal. GKG!!!

lfadam 06-09-2014 6:17 PM

Am I the only one that feels like the Kings are never the better team but always win? As a Canes fan, I have no dog in this fight but I feel like the Kings are always trailing and always getting outplayed but somehow they squeak it out every time. First two games of the finals...perfect example. I wish the teams I liked (in any sport) could pull that off.

The Kings get down, but I don't think they're being outplayed. If anything, the outplay and wear down the competition as the game/series progresses.

I don't know if I'd have bet big on the Kings in any series coming through the West, but I assumed they'd beat NYR....said 7, but 6 would not have surprised me at all. Looks like 4 is very possible.

deuce 06-10-2014 10:00 AM

Though King Hank's .892 save percentage(think I have that figured right) is a bit down and the NYR are only being outshot by like 5 shots total.... Quick has been awesome @ .938 and the Kings are putting the puck in the net, averaging 3.67 goals a game.

Best news, looks like Trevor Lewis will be bringing the Cup back to SLC this Summer!


GO AVS!

95sn 06-10-2014 11:58 AM

First goal last night as time expired in 1st period...sucked the life out of the arena and NYR. GKG.

deuce 06-11-2014 8:35 PM

What a great game..... Can't wait for Friday!

95sn 06-13-2014 4:05 PM

I swear they had magnets in those pucks.

ottog1979 06-13-2014 10:43 PM

Didn't I tell ya?

deuce 06-14-2014 6:36 AM

Congrats to the Kings & their fans! Also to the NYR, great run.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to take the kids to see the Cup when Trevor Lewis brings it to town.

Now 3.5 months of no NHL....

GO AVS!
