The problem with playoff hockey on the weekends is that I get absolutely nothing done (at least in the early rounds). I'm glad that I'm off today & can get a couple of things done before parking myself in front of the tv once again.

NYR 2-1 in regulation
PHX 3-2 1OT

Let's see how good my crystal ball skills are....

fark it, I want to see overtime again. I want this series to go to 7 games and I want game 7 to go to double overtime. Whoever wins, I want to see the most closely contested first round series in history.

I'd like to see the Sens advance, but as a Blues fan, man, I don't know if I want Chicago hanging around or Phoenix. I think Nashville will destroy either team, but the Blackhawks stand more of a chance of roughing them up before they get to the Blues in the conference final (assuming the Blues can get past the Kings, natch).

So, Sens and Hawks, I guess.

Here's my hopes:

'Yotes over Hawks (2-1 OT)

Nothing personal against the Sens - I'd just like a friend to have his team go deep into the playoffs for a change.

..and of course, the more the Coyotes win while under NHL control, the funnier I find it.

I actually disagree. The CBC should get out of professional sports entirely (including the Olympics) and leave that to TSN and CTV. Focus on amateur sports as well as good, quality programming, as per its mandate - what it used to do before the network was dumbed down for a youth audience. Keep the CBC public, though.

netweavr: Can someone explain the Senators mascot/logo to me? Are they just trying to incorporate all of Roman culture or is there a method to the madness?


I never fully understood it. So they are the capital of Canada and they're called Senators, which makes sense. DC had the Washington Senators. But then the whole gladiator thing is where I get confused. I mean, if they're going for the Roman democracy thing, shouldn't their mascot be a guy in a toga?
 
2012-04-23 07:22:53 PM  
I called Gonchar scoring the first goal. You didn't see me do it, but I did. That means you all owe me $10.

Or not...

Wow, awesome traffic in front of Henrik... good job Ottawa!
 
2012-04-23 07:23:00 PM  
Yep. Just blasting the pucks at the net from way out there. Lunquist is a good goalie, but he can't stop what he can't see.

Oh "double nickel,"how I miss you (Gonchar)

This game is a tough one for me. On one hand, I enjoy the misery of Canadian hockey fans, on the other, I want to see both #1 seeds gone in the first round.

The Senators is a stupid, stupid, stupid mascot. It's awful. You may as well be rooting for the Ottawa CEOs, or the Ottawa Tax Attorneys, etc. It's awful.

geom_00: Donnchadha, you are very correct on that fact.

Go Bruins!


Although, if the Caps make it through, and the Sens and Panthers win their game 6's, then it's Flyers/Caps in the next round.

On the bright side, they both can't win, but on the down side, they both can't lose.

According to what I read today, it will be the first time that happened in this current playoff format. But I read it on Twitter so it's probably not true.

Oh, I FINALLY understand the countdown to Alfie chant. It starts with 11:10 on the clock counting down to 11 (his number, and then they chant Alfie for a while. I'm embarrassed to not have figured that out sooner.

It's not even about the logo. They should stop being the Senators and start being something good. You could keep the logo and become the Ottawa Gladiators - that would be way cooler.

Yeah, that's awesome. I was actually referring to regular season games too, would always watch the Canadian feed over the American one if both were available. I prefer CBC though and am glad they cover the playoffs the whole way through.

I'm loving the blatant homerism on my stream. The announcers were going berserk saying that the Richards slash (which should have been a penalty, granted) was 100% unprovoked and Neil just accidentally ran into him because he was losing an edge. There was a brief call for 10 minute match penalty/attempt to injure before they regained what passes for their sanity.

May be a long time before we see another. Hell, last Canadian team to win was Habs in 93. I'd love to see another take the Cup back home. They had their chances, 3 years in a row in fact with 2 going to Game 7. Ottawa's looking good, but they've got a hell of a task if they're going to be that next team.

It's good. Never had the Rye, just the Bourbon. For only a dollar more than Jack, it's worth it. It's almost identical to Buffalo Trace if you've ever had that.


I've got a half empty bottle of Buffalo Trace at the moment. Bulleit bourbon has more rye content than most bourbons (at least on average), which my wife doesn't enjoy -- she wasn't a fan of Four Roses, but loves Makers since it's no rye and all wheat in it's place. But if it's similar to Buffalo Trace, perhaps I can convince her to give it a try.

Granted, I also like my bourbon with an ice cube and she likes making cocktails

Buffalo Trace is very nice indeed. I like both wheaters and rye-based bourbons, in any case.

Did not know about the rye content. I usually end up either drinking it on the rocks when I watch westerns or mixing it with coke or ginger ale for hockey.

Perfect timing. Just seen him try a shot and it was blocked.

But if the Rangers keep letting shots in from way out there, there'll be more goals like the first one.

Ugh. Would that I could devote full attention to watching this game, but it is Hell Week for me and that has nothing to do with two must-win games for the Devils.
Tomorrow, I have to stay after for a quiz bowl competition. I should be home in time for the Devils' game.
Wednesday, I have a bonus quiz bowl practice and then a concert at my school
Thursday, I'm giving a sample lesson (basically audition for a full-time position) and then... quiz bowl practice. Then tutoring, so I won't be home until something like 8:30 or 9.
Then Friday, I travel with the quiz bowl team to Washington, DC for a national competition. Hence all the practices this week.
Oh yeah and I have some 70 practice AP Calculus tests to grade, so that my students (and I) know whether they're going to bomb the actual exam.

That reminds me of a column Jeremy Clarkson wrote a couple years ago where he proposed that in order to cut down on diving in soccer any player that couldn't stand on his own within a certain amount of time should be put down on the pitch. That like in horse racing, it is the only humane thing to do.

nah... it's crap like usual.

Wrestling was the only "time gap" i had on fark until the playoffs.

but the missus enjoyed letting brain melt on mondays and a random streaming PPV on the HTPC once a month on Sundays as she did work at home.

so no complaints here... we both know it sucks.. but i'd rather watch it than anything else on TV.

Find a place that lets you take growlers of your favorite brew of theirs home, pop the top when the first game starts, DRINK!

A growler is a little more than a half gallon (so, smaller than a keglet), but a good local brew pub will likely have beers in e 12%+ abv so you can still get good and drunk off of it.

Meh, I think it's more along the lines of the NSH-DET series. Lots of shots by one team, but not very good scoring opportunities.

Speaking strictly on tonight's game, Chicago's had some awesome looks at Smith, just haven't beaten him.

I just had this same logic come to mind yesterday when I was talking to my non-hockey fan friend whose birthday is Wednesday.

Last year on his birthday the Bruins had tied up the Montreal series and were playing Game 5 on his birthday. We all went over to his house and hung out with him for 6 hours, drinking and eventually moving to the bar to accommodate all his friends who were coming out to drink with him. We watched the first period at the bar, then my GF, our friend who was home from Afghanistan left to go watch the rest of the game at my house.

Later he said something about hockey ruining his birthday because we left. After hanging with him for six hours. And leaving him with a half dozen of his other friends who had just shown up within the hour.

He doesn't have to work Thursday so it would only make sense for us to do some drinking on Wednesday night.

thats how lawsuits happen

@FriedgeHNIC: Neil on del zotto hit: "I take my lumps and give lumps but may catch (him) with his head down at one point." #hnic

Nothing wrong with that....if you have your head down you can't see him coming. Neil's not threatening a head shot at all, only that he hopes to hit him next game.


pre meditated hits = suspension

I wonder if Tippett and Trotz are golfing buddies. If not, they should write a book together; "Watching Paint Dry; How to play effective, boring hockey, and ride your hot goaltender until he passes out"

That's no different than what we've seen so far. :-)

Now for Chicago to tie it up at some point to sent this game as well to OT....

//sort of anyway, I got the right winner & the right final score but the score was for the wrong game....

This is a great farking power play for Chicago.

What's that? It's not a power play?

msupf: ride your hot goaltender until he passes out


As a Habs fan, I am intimately familiar with that style of play. But my first thought was still "isn't that the goalie's girlfriend's job?"

No, if it was a power play there would be zero shots on goal.
 
2012-04-23 10:34:40 PM  
If the Yotes advance, the West will have only 2 players from the top 50 goal scorers this year (Vrbata 11, Hornqvist 44), and some red hot goalies.

Allegedly, the Coyotes had five skaters on the ice. Clearly they only had two and three were just holograms.

Too bad the Hawks have Crawford instead of Quick.

2012-04-23 10:38:48 PM  
Hey there Crawford!!

You know, if the extra man helped Chicago (which clearly is does NOT), I'd say just pull the goalie and go balls out for the entire 3rd period. Phoenix has like 7 shots on goal the whole game, so with an extra man out there constantly you'd think that'd be maybe 1 at most.

Hell, if the Hawks still had Niemi they might be the Boobies-lockout dynasty.

What a joke of a PP
 
2012-04-23 10:41:14 PM  
Gah. Worst reffed game in the Sens-Rangers series so far - marginal call after marginal call, not befitting a playoff game. Hell, if it was an exhibition it would have still been a poorly called game. It was like a speeding blitz; were the ref's paid by the call or something?

Still, you don't score goals if you don't shoot the puck, Spezza. When Ottawa is given a cheap-assed power play, you need to shoot the farking puck, and take advantage of undeserved power plays. The Rangers were good at this tonight - you sucked. This also goes for the other Senators who didn't shoot much. And if the Rangers keep trying to block shots, shoot harder. Either they'll get out of the way or they'll get hurt, so there isn't much of a downside to shooting more.

/Go Sens Go!
//Can we get a decent pair of ref's for the next game?
 
2012-04-23 10:41:37 PM  
JESUS CHRIST CHICAGO!! YOU'RE ON A farkING POWER PLAY!! STOP RUNNING AROUND IN YOUR OWN ZONE WHEN YOU DOMINATE ALL EVEN STRENGTH PLAY!!

1-0 after 40 minutes.
 
2012-04-23 10:41:49 PM  
Chicago's better off declining every power play from here on out.

If I was Chicago, when a Phoenix PP was called I'd just go slash someone, or take a delay of game penalty. Hell, Coach Q should be sending an extra 3 guys over the boards instantly when that happens so they get a TOO MUCH MAN penalty.

If the 'Nucks had figured that strategy out in game two they might have avoided the golf course for a bit longer . . .

They had it wrong, they kept firing the puck over the glass on the PK and wondering why it wasn't working.

I think caira was referring to the shorties Van gave up early in the series. If they declined those power plays, those goals might never have happened. :-)
