Well, the Avs are 3-1....so already have 14% of their win total from last year. I have that going for me.:noon

Hope to catch games in Denver & Vegas this year.

Sounds like Mac’s okay and that’s great news. High stick to the eye and not returning is always scary stuff. Bednar went as far as to say Mac would likely play today in Dallas.

GO AVS!

Quiet thread this year (or should I say this time of year)...

The Flyers, after beating the Blackhawks on 11/9 (hi Tom :)) go on to lose 10 in a row. Then on 12/4, they start a win streak that's now up to 6 games - going for number 7 tonight.

That's crazy!

See, Joel, if they had lost to the Blackhawks they would have won the next 10, and been going for 17 in a row tonight. :noon

Hawks have 5 in a row, the encouraging part is the last two were against division rivals they need to pass in the standings.

I've been trying to watch as much Antti Raanta as I can. Lots of YouTube.
I really like watching his style. He's standing on his head for Arizona with absolutely no help.
He doesn't tie up the puck really well, but that's because he's not real soft with his blockers. But he controls his kicks to where his boys SHOULD be. (Coming to cover the freakin net and stopping second shots with their face.)
I'd trade Matt Murray and our soda machine for him even up. Right now. I'd probably even let go the Primanti Brothers concession and a cotton candy machine if they push back.

I know the Blackhearts let him go and so did the Rangers (or was it the Islanders?), but they're stupid.

If I have to watch another game full of Murrays crippled and unmovable glove hand, I'll choke myself out with green bungie cord.

Yeah, the Blackhearts sent him to Rockford, brought up Scott Darling, and won the Stanley Cup that year. Stupid like Edison. :r

Funny how a team can lose(trade away) what many would consider their best player and get better. Team sports and chemistry, crazy how that works.

AVS win 7 straight for the 1st time in over 10 years(12), MacKinnon is playing as well as anyone in hockey & this team is working for a playoff spot.

In the last 10 years, the distant days past, the Blackhawks and Pens have each taken 3 Cups. That's two clubs that took 6/10 Cups. The Pens are standing to make it 4, which would be plain insane. (I can't even imagine the odds, and I'm not holding my breath.)
The last 10 years in the NFL, 9 teams have split 10 Lombardi Trophies.
Last 10 World Series Champs, 8 teams have split 10 Commissioner's Trophies.
San Francisco took home 3.

For any team to 3-peat in a 10 year span is incredible.
I don't think there's any argument that Hockey is the hardest sport to win multiple championships. Not even close.

Anyways, how much chrome are they stacking in Cincinnati, Dan? :lr :lr :lr

Didn't get him this year, Neil. :( I've had and dropped a few throughout the season (Myers, Perrault), but didn't get any of the big guns in the draft.

Jets finish strong. (Sorry Tom - the closer was a bit of a bummer for your boys)
Looking forwRd to the Wild. Time for the whiteout!

Glad to see the Avs squeak in - down to the wire there!

No worries, the wins against the Blues were my playoffs this year, Neil. Jets jersey is all hung and ready to go. I think they'll crush the Wild in round 1, especially with Minnesota's top 2 D-men out of the lineup.

I’m pulling for the Avs, EJ. I’d like to see a couple W’s out of them at the very least.

That Minnesota Win made me smile hard!!!

I’ve been pulling for the Kings, but I can’t anymore. Fleury is one of my all-time favorites.
And he’s been lights out. He is sorely missed in my Pens lineup.

I’ll be shocked if the Jackets can keep up to Washington.
It’d work to the Pens advantage, but I’m not believing it.

I go into every Bruins' game like it's another loss waiting to happen because Rask sucks and chokes (like the blow and gulp but suck and choke) that way if the team bails him out and they win I'm happy if they lose... well Rask sucks. It's like Derek Lowe pitching for the Red Sox the season he had a sh!tload of wins, what most people didn't look at was he also had the highest run support in the majors at something like 7 runs per start.

The Preds fans have a chant "it's all your fault!" - for game 7 I have 3 candidates:

Poor Rinne, who had two crazy goals get by in the first 10 minutes - not sure I really can lay it on him...
Ryan Ellis, who skated around gently while Stastny blew by and got up close and personal with the goalie. (One of the most tenacious forwards around the net - what are you thinking?)..

No, not him either.

For me it's that twit Subban. We've watched his antics all season long - writhing in apparent pain, crawling to the bench after a hit. Such B.S. Last night he was checked by Kyle Connor, who must be all of 165lbs. Subban went flying as if hit by a train or possibly even Dustin Byfuglien. To add insult to injury Subban scored on the ensuing power play.

But Karma is a ***** my friend.

Diving and writhing belongs on the soccer field, not on the ice. He doesn't deserve to be in the NHL, and certainly doesn't deserve to be in the conference finals. Good riddance, I don't have to watch your bullsh*t till next Fall.

Ironically most of the top Jets players are Americans!

I like Subban. That being said, that penalty he drew was a joke, at least it should have been 4 on 4 with maybe the most outrageous embellishment I've seen so far in the playoffs. OK, top 3. :r

Jets - Vegas will be like the Stanley Cup for me. I put my dough on the Jets.

Caps - Boltz? I will be betting on Tampa but rooting for DC.

Just hope it's as good as Round 2 was.

It’s ok elderboy my jets decided to end your season!!! And you have to say the best series is yet to come. Jets vs knights will be a great test of both teams.

Well to be honest I am relieved that the preds got lost.

I think the best match up in the series is coming up in the knights jets match up. I think Tampa is going to be a short series.

All that being said its still better than no hockey.

I'm right in that same boat, E.J., I'm rooting for Vegas but would think it was super cool if Ovechkin got the Cup. Mostly just hoping for a great series!

At least they crushed Nashville before they exited. :wo :lr

It still means that Nashville packed up lockers two weeks before Winnipeg!! Plus they just showed that if Nashville can’t do much without Rinne. It was a good series but Nashville still lost which meant we don’t have the peanut gallery of Elderboy praying and hoping that Nashville can play hockey!

Next game ... Monday

In the last few years ... sometimes a week before finals start

With a total lack of continuity at the beginning of the finals ... is it any wonder that hockey is looked at as minor league sport ???

NHL big heads should get their act together ... only people still interested in hockey are in Vegas and Washington .

A week is just tooooooo long

I'm still in a deep blue funk. Team ran out of gas and had no idea what to do with Fleury after game 1.

Now rooting for Ovechkin, but I'm afraid goalies win the Stanley cup, and right now Fleury is HOT.

Couldn't agree more, D. How do they let the momentum of both teams cool for 6+ days? :confused:
