Re: NHL 1st Round 2013 playoffs

Kings and Sharks tomorrow. I'm not sure who to root for or who my beard is supposed to bring luck to now. I'm so confused. . . but happy.

^Nice!

Ottawa just took the series in 5 with a 6-1 win tonight!

I have to say given how obnoxious Habs fans are at Ottawa games it was very satisfying to see Ottawa close out the series in Montreal and silence the crowd.
I particularly enjoyed the Pageau/Ole chant in the other game in Ottawa.

And holy shit, Toronto. How do you blow that, regardless of how good the other team is?

My wife hosted a hockey party last night, a whole bunch of her cousins came over to watch game 7. She's a particularly passionate Leaf fan, been following them like a religious zealot since she discovered hockey in 2006, never seen them in a playoff game.

She was getting very emotional when they tied the series, and with a 4-1 lead in the 3rd last night, they were all planning the next round, going downtown for a game (she and I went to Maple Leafs Square to watch the game on the big screen outside the arena for game 3 against the Bruins).

And then that collapse...dear lord. I thought the lot of them were going to do a mass suicide. My poor wife is so bummed. Hopefully she'll realize that they still had their best season in 10 years, and they'll probably get better.

That said, Go Sens!

Re: NHL 1st Round 2013 playoffs

The thing that REALLY ticks me off... the Canucks get nailed with a penalty for body checking. Sharks score and finish off the Canucks. Eastern media explains how there was not question that it was a penalty.

Bruins make almost the exact same hit. No penalty called. Bruins during the time that should have been a power play for the Leafs (according to the criteria established in the Canucks Sharks series) score two goals.

How is one play obviously a penalty, and yet the same play in the Toronto Boston series not?

And a day after his clutch goal in the last minute to tie it up, Daniel Alfredsson is nominated for the Messier leadership award.

Vigneault was never a strong coach and he just seemed to be belligerent in interviews.

Elaine's problem is that he's got a history of playing like a dirty cheap shot artist.

That carried over to his team as a coach. I have no doubt that the Canucks have the talent to play as a team that doesn't need to dive and whine to win. With new management, they can.

They still won't win a Cup though. Go Hawks.

And the worst kept secret in the NHL is now confirmed: Patrick Roy is the new coach and VP of the Avalanche.

This is either going to be the best or worst decision in recent memory.

Seem he failed to light a fire under the teams asses when it counted.
I suspect Gillis will be gone by Dec. if the team fails to perform.

Another reason to keep my intense dislike for the AV's .

IF he coaches them like he did his kids team they'll be in the sin bin a whole lot.
Roy was one of the most arrogant players I saw play the game
