NHL playoffs

I figured since there was an NBA playoffs thread that I would make an NHL one as well. Any hockey fans here? i'm a long suffering Kings fan myself, I was hoping we would sweep the Canucks last night so they could riot again in their city hopefully they can close it out tomorrow in Vancouver
edit: just checked the schedule, next game isn't until Sunday

as odd as it may sound being division rivals and all I would consider the Sharks my second favorite team, I usually root for them when they aren't playing LA. its not looking good for them in their series though, now they're in a 1-3 hole against the Blues who have owned them all season long

i'm actually happy to be seeing the Coyotes up 3-1 on Chicago, it would be their first time advancing to the next round. its also a trip how all their games so far have been decided in OT, I can't remember the last time that ever happened? good luck the rest of the way (as long as you don't face the Kings)

i love that they're beating chicago too. i can't believe they lost that second game. they were winning until 5 seconds left on the clock...

we don't have a team here in kansas city anymore, so i root for the blues and phoenix. the bar that i go to has been overrun by blackhawks fans for some reason and it's great being the only one cheering as they all file out crushed at the end of the night.

Pens were the favorites to win it all and they've let in over 25+ goals in 4 games.

Yeah, it's been a crazy playoff. Weber got off with a fine for this garbage



Two days ago.... Hossa was carried off on a stretcher



Never mind the ridiculous Pens/Flyers series.

the sharks are so fucking done. I dont know who im gonna go for when the sharks are out but will watch anyway. This playoff has been super exciting to say the least. They had more penalties and suspensions in the first round then the entire playoffs last season.

Raffi Torres is a fucking lunatic. All he does is skate around and cheap shot broms.

I've been a Blues fan since I was a kid. Their play this year has been pretty surprising, they've won more playoff games this week than they have in nearly a decade. I expected them to make the playoffs but they're a team that's been built through the draft so their core is still young and inexperienced, coupled with the emergence of Elliott who was an afterthought to every other team in the league and signed for league minimum only to wind up leading the NHL in GAA & sv%. They should be even more powerful next year with Tarasenko, Schwartz and hopefully a FA signing or two. But the series with the Sharks certainly isn't over yet.

Side thought:

Kings, Coyotes, Blues, and Predators all lead their respective series 3-1, over the next couple days the perennial contending Red Wings, Canucks, Sharks, and Blackhawks could all be eliminated guaranteeing the Cup finalist from the West will be new blood. The Kings haven't been to the Finals in nearly 20 years, the Blues 40 years, neither the Coyotes or Preds have ever been in their existence.

What's almost as bad is that there was no penalty on that Torres/Hossa play.

Wow, that's pretty interesting.

Which if those teams can you see coming back 3-1? We'll see how it all plays out.

they better win the next game or they're in trouble, i'm hoping Jagr gets the game winning goal, mainly just because he snubbed the Penguins in the off-season

more than half the games in the first round have gone to OT, it's insane.

Caps fer life. Had sooo many chances last night that I don't wanna think about anymore. If we bite a fat dick in game 7 and lose, then go Flyers.



Because of Jagr.

Alright, before Game 6 starts, I would like to say a few thing to the Senator fans of this board and in the world:

You guys aren't fucking good. You guys are just fucking lucky that our offense hasn't been clicking yet. By no means, am I afraid that we will lose tonight. We have more talent on our first line and in our goaltender then your whole fucking team has in it's entire system from the players on the ice to the players in your farm system.

You think Henrik will let us lose? You think Callahan won't show up tonight with a goal? You actually believe that Gabby and Richards won't hook up for at least five points apiece tonight? You actually believe, in your idiotic brains, that there is any possible chance that you'll fucking win?

There has never been a season in the NBA or NHL where BOTH first seeds lost in the first round. The Kings were a better team than the shitty Canucks and deserved their win, but we aren't the Canucks. We're fucking good. You guys were supposed to be a lottery pick and got lucky that Spezza realized to stop drinking booze and doing coke long enough to score some goals.

Karlsson? He's a fucking fluke. A flash in the pan. I would take twenty different defensemen before him if I had the chance. The guy is a joke at actually defending and will be the reason you lose tonight.

So yeah, I've heard you fuckers laugh at us for the past few days with your 3-2 lead, but tonight it fucking ends. We destroy you jokers tonight and then go back to our home, THE GARDEN, where we will kick your asses out of the fucking playoffs and straight to the hell known as Canada for the rest of your shitty lives.

I hope you enjoy your stay in mediocrity, losers.

Sens lead 1 - 0 dude.

Though I hope you're right.

EDIT: 3 - 1 Rangers after two, let's do this!

That last goal by Neil was bullshit. Glad to see the Rangers win though.
