What a pathetic showing by the Bruins last night.

Ugh.

I'm not sure if I'm ready to say "Go Leafs", but yes, the Bruins were playing like they thought they were entitled to get the win & move on.  Along a similar line I though at the end of regulation that ALL the momentum had shifted to the Ducks after overcoming a 3-1 deficit in the last 3.5 minutes of the game.  If they didn't have a full intermission to rest & ease up (or Detroit to regroup), the ending probably would have been very different.

Ah well, that's part of what makes hockey so exciting & fun to watch and also why earning The Cup is one of the hardest thing to achieve in professional sports.

Especially late in the 3rd, when the Leafs were just barely hanging on and dragging their skates.
Bruins had 'em up against the ropes and they laid off >:(
Kudos to Toronto for doing what needed to be done.

Pretty much. Toronto wanted that game more than the Bruins...

I still don't think Toronto is going to win 3 in a row, but stranger things have happened in recent history.

Sorry I'm late.  One of the great things about not being in the hospital is sleeping in.  And uninterrupted sleep.  And good food.  And... just about everything.

Go Isles.  I'm pretty sure they'll lose, but I'm rooting for them anyway.  I wouldn't even bet on them at 50:1, but I'm still rooting for them.

lol, context...

The B's fans were trying to not talk about the last time they had three in the bank and tanked (it was 2010, against the Flyers.)
the Bruins actually have a bit of a thing about elimination games, since Julien, they are 6 and 11 in games where they could send the other team golfing...

Missed that, but clever  Maybe I'm just still a little bitter at having to watch 25 Flyers games on NBC Sports this year.  It's almost like they don't realize there are other teams besides the Flyers, Penguins. Bruins, Hawks, and Wings.  Just seemed they were just disproportionately represented, particularly in such a short season.  Maybe I'm just bitter that Comcast's version of Center Ice was not worth it even at only $50

I guess there isn't a lot in the way of local coverage down there?  It's a whole other world with cable near Toronto, between Leaf TV, Sportsnet Ontario, TSN, and CBC all in HD + all the games on one or the other of the sports radio stations, there are no gaps in the coverage.
 
2013-05-11 03:49:05 PM  
Hell we even get Marlie Playoff hockey in HD(!) Although it's "B" crew and rookie commentators.  Game 2 Round 2 on BTW, 1st intermission and no score i think.  They stunk up the joint last night... Griffins 7 Marlies 0

But, you see, the Leafs lack something the 2010 Flyers had... Playoff experience beyond the first round. : )

True enough, but as someone once said it's hard to get experience without experience. They may well be so inexperienced they don't even know they should be nervous.   Or, considering the expectations for the year, they are playing with zero pressure on them and every game is gravy.  Also Carlyle is a magician(!) absolutely getting every everything out of these guys.

Yeah, beyond Sharks games and NBCS, the only hockey coverage is NHL Network, and the occasional college hockey game on CBS sports.  Annoying, but that's the trade-off for living in California.  Honestly, I'd take this climate anyday.
 
2013-05-11 04:29:54 PM  
Marlie update:  2-0 Marlies.  The first one on a PP they shouldn't have had, and the second on a shortie.

What's the point of not starting the first game until 4:30 tomorrow? NBC can't farking possibly think that NHL fans with nothing to watch are going to tune into watch golf, can they?
 
2013-05-11 05:13:22 PM  
My preliminary guess about the Western Conference Semifinals:

If Anaheim wins, they both start Tuesday.
If Detroit wins, DET @ CHI on Tuesday, SJ @ LA on Wednesday.

Everybody except for Ducks fans have to be rooting for Detroit. Those would be the best 2nd round match ups possible.
 
2013-05-11 05:21:47 PM  
As much as I hate the Ducks, I kinda hope they win, just to hear the mass biatching about all the 7:30 start times.  Payback for all those 9am Sunday games during the season.  Some of us have to drink on Saturday nights.

Dunno. I don't think there's any competition on TV tomorrow early afternoon. The NASCAR race is tonight.

No bad 'shop tonight. I was too busy out in the back yard digging up what looks like old steel wheels for a Model T (found the steel bands and a couple hubs) out of the ground breaking rocks. Yes, really, with a 20 lbs sledge. Breaking concrete off metal fence posts so I can get rid of both.

My arms and shoulders hurt.

It should be legal for all fans to punch the mascot once per game.

Hmmm, I might have to go to one of those games. We went once this year and I was impressed by how good the Griffins are, plus I like their arena.

The best part was the intermission broomball played by 20-30 mascots. It was like 5 minutes of purple dinosaur mascot fail.

Leaves outplayed the Bruins. It's an insult to suggest they won only because a redneck said the Bruins were pathetic. As if the Bruins are entitled to win the series. Fark you
