Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

I'm physically and emotionally drained from last night's game. I don't know how I'm gonna make through the tampa series.


Condolences to all. It's good to see that you were able to bond with your loved ones through hockey.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

So what's the injury list looking like for the Rangers right now? Who may not play game 1?

I heard today speculation that Zuccarello might be back as early as game 1.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Games are 1pm Saturday and 3pm Sunday? Get Bettman and America out of our hockey league.

Hockey games go at 7pm or 8pm. This is a joke. If the Saturday game goes to OT it will likely be preempted on NBC by Preakness Stakes coverage. LOL USA come on.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Gotta admit it would be pretty hilarious in this thread if the only team left with a non-Canadian captain won the cup. Even I'd lol Canada for that.

Are the 11 Canadians on the Rangers near an all-time low for any NHL team? Probably has to be close to some of the Wings teams? 8 Muricans on the team must also be one of the highest ever totals?

edit: ok Tampa only has 10 cdns. Wow.

Preakness post time is somewhere around 6 PM. They'll just leave the race preliminaries on NBCSN if the game goes to OT. If it goes to double OT or more, they'll flip the game/race between networks in US markets where the hockey isn't a big draw.

No real conflict. Modern TV. Nothing's locked in anywhere.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

I have no idea who to cheer for. Out of my pool now. I'll be in New York from June 11-14. That's probably during SCF. I guess would be cool if they're in it. Will need to grease the law firm for tix.

He's a diving, flopping pussy, who tries to call out other people for it in the media.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

I'm mentally and emotionally drained from this last series. I'm glad I can rest until Saturday.

Can't imagine how the players feel.

Gotta love Getzlaf, especially when he called out Ovechkin for being the ***** that he most certainly is

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

Insane stat of the day:

Hank. 3 years in a row wins a game 7 on 5/13 and records 35 saves in each game.

Mind blown.

Oh yeah, almost forgot

Yes, I am aware of that, however given the increased parity in the league, those kind of match-ups will be increasingly rare. Also, the Hawks and Rags have never met in a scf, I think it would be compelling.

Re: NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs 2015

How the Rags are at the top of those rankings is beyond me. I would have them at the bottom of those 4. Maybe ahead of TB but certainly not ANA or CHI. Ridiculous.
