sno man: Everyone survive last night?  holy bonus hockey!


I bailed at the 2 OT mark. Being EST, I'm not going to break midnight except for the Bruins, cause I gotta get up at 5:30...


Besides, I've seen snough 2OT+ hockey to know the quality goes down hill. Everyone gets tired

I had just finished explaining to a new hockey fan that Kings-Sharks tend to be low scoring, hard physical games.  And then the Sharks rip off 5 in a row.  Made me look like an idiot.  But who cares, Game 1 :  SHARKS!

I hope the Bruins kill the Red Wings tonight. First off all, I'm pretty sure there is a theoretical maximum amount of hockey, and we have been burning it up the past two days. So I think we need to keep some in reserve for the next rounds.

I mean, show of hands, who thinks we will survive the Playoffs if a game every night goes to OT?

Depends on how many OTs the games go to.  One, no big deal.  2+ and then we east coasters start to suffer.

No, you need water to help with the hangover, drink bud light or better yet- keystone.

I am full on expecting a deep run, but last year taught me to enjoy the ride more - I had made my peace with the Bruins losing when it was 3-1 game 7 with Toronto. They came back and to me, the rest of the playoffs was bonus hockey. It was great

Well congrats to the Bruins faithful for finally having a game to watch, it took you long enough to get here...

Sadly I doubt that I will be around for puck drop (volunteering at the library - they don't understand hockey - by the finals they will, oh yes they will...) but I should be back by the 2nd period for the early games.  Besides, the only real game of the night doesn't come along until 10pm so I've got plenty of time.

Lovely game with the Kings & Sharks last night.  Even though SJ demolished them early & often, them beating the crap out of each other was nice to see.  Please continue to do so through the next six games so that whoever wins is wiped out & gets swept in round 2, that would be a good thing.

For those worried about multi OT games & falling asleep, fear not.  While I don't have the link (yet) to where you can download a game that you may have missed, this wonderful site - Don't Tell Me The Score - will give you the highlights from any game you wish with no spoilers.  For those of us on the east coast who have to go to bed, put that as your top window on your computer & when you get up the first thing that you'll see is the game that you missed as it happened & not knowing how it ended.  About the only way that wouldn't work is if the game was still going on & heading into the 11OT period in which case, screw it, I'm calling in sick.

Enjoy the early hockey, see you in a few hours...

Tim Thompson, the guy who makes them for the CBC, posts links on his Twitter.  There wasn't one for last night, but there will be one tonight.

For whatever reason they only let him keep the playoff opener up on his You Tube page for a couple days.  It's at the beginning of Montreal/Tampa Bay replay on the CBC website, but you'll have to spoof the website into thinking your computer is in Canada.

I JUST DRANK A WHOLE MONSTER ENERGY DRINK SO NO CHANCE I MISS ANY 3 OT THRILLERS TONIGHT
 
2014-04-18 06:58:28 PM  
Let's see if I can get this in before Fark gets farked again (I've seen 5 "Five Oh Oh" errors just trying to load this thread)...

It's the final report of the Alternative NHL Standings, where we ask the stupid question "what if the NHL actually used an intelligent method to set the standings?" It's a stupid question because we know that won't happen as long as Bergman is in charge.

The systems presented for the uninitiated:

International/Olympic system: self-explanatory. The 3 point rule they use in the Olympics and all international competition.

The Revised 3-point system: My suggestion, where regulation and OT wins are worth 3 points, OT losses are worth nothing, shootout points are split 2 for the win and 1 for the loss.

Old NHL: Where ties still exist and the shootout is shot dead.

The next 2 are from Grantland and Down Goes Brown's summer mailbag on how fans would fix the NHL, where my system appeared as well.

Soccer style system: 3 points for a win, 1 for a tie.

Four-point system: 4 pts for a regulation win, 3 for an OT win (1 for an OT loss) and 2 pts for a tie

Finally, a straight up win-loss setup like every other sport does.

So what did we learn this year? Well, not a whole lot if we're honest. All 16 playoff teams are the same in every system except the Old NHL and Soccer systems. If both of those setups, the 2nd wild card in each conference changes. There's some seeding changes, but nothing significant.  The reality is that the realigned divisions took away some of the drama of the playoff races.

Some facts:

75% of regular season games ended in regulation. Of the games that went to OT, 58% went to a shootout. I don't have info on how that relates to past seasons.

Team with fewest shootouts: Carolina at 6 (2-4).

Chicago's combined regular and postseason record in games decided in OT periods: 1-8 (and the 1 came just last week)

evening all....only get to see the first period as I have to be a target for another group at 9:30 - glad to see the Rangers finally remember how to put the puck in the net last night.  Pulling for Bruins and as much as I hate Montreal, they're my bracket pick

now...Hockey!!!!

Serious question?  If the Wings were still in the west, would they have made the playoffs this year.  I know point wise, they'd still be #8 (2nd wild card, whatever) but with the extra travel, and the meat grinder that is the Pacific division(Alberta teams not withstanding), and their injuries...  would they have made it?   Not trolling, just wondering.

Hold on, I just reread your question. The pacific meat grinder is overrated. Look at the difference between LA and Phoenix has proof. Outside of California, the division wasn't that good. It would've been a close call between Detroit and Dallas to get in, I think.

Comcast put the splitter in a "weatherproof" box at my place. It's not as weatherproof as they think, since more than once it has needed to be replaced because it became waterlogged.

That guy on the bike: Dear Mr. Therrien,
now that you have a 2 goal lead, can you please not sit back and play the dump game.  my fingernails are short enough as it is and i only have 3 more beers left.  thank you


This.  Also, I think this postseason it takes at least a 4-goal lead to be safe, an even that is dangerous thru the first 2 nights!

If the Bruins got the power plays they deserved they'd torch everybody.

I could understand if it was one year that they had far and away the fewest power plays because hey, things can happen or whatever. But it's consistent. They don't really dive so they don't get the calls.

Now before you post that video of the 6 times the Bruins dove realize that most other teams dive 2-3 times every single game.

Not Detroit, though. I have seen no evidence of that with them.

Don't waste your time trying to figure out how Datsyuk does things with the puck. Just assume it's black magic.

I'm not worried about the series yet, but to watch that sequence to basically end the game puts a damper on my night.

As much as I'd love an easy path to the cup I'm almost hoping that they can beat the Wings, face Montreal and beat them and then face the Penguins for a chance to rip through the best teams to get to the Cup.

I'm more concerned on decision making when it comes to taking the body or taking the puck. They go for the body and the puck bounces right to a Red Wing. They take the body and a Red Wing skates around them.

Nah, The Red Wings are looking gassed, or as gassed as the Bruins. Every second they hold on, the Bruins get to play their game more and more.

I'm not worried about the series yet, but to watch that sequence to basically end the game puts a damper on my night.

As much as I'd love an easy path to the cup I'm almost hoping that they can beat the Wings, face Montreal and beat them and then face the Penguins for a chance to rip through the best teams to get to the Cup.


The game came down to which goalie didn't catch a break. I mean, that move byDatsyukwas nasty. By Howard got real lucky numerous times. He plays like that, yeah, Boston is in trouble. But from what I have seen, that's a big if.

Yeah, the last great save by Howard was on a puck that went in the exact same place as the winning goal did, albeit from different angle.

For anyone who happens to miss a game & wants to watch it (or hears through the grapevine that it was a great one for whatever reason), you can usually find downloads for it here the day after.  The same guy does/did every game during the regular season & plans on doing the same for the playoffs.  I don't know how long they will be up (probably at least a month or so) so if you want to watch some good hockey during the summer, go grab your favorites from the playoffs.

I was expecting Howard to steal Game 2, but I think the Red Wings have cracked Rask's playoff mindset with that late goal, particularly as far out as Datsyuk scored it. Game 2 will have the Wings scoring more goals than the Bruins (Nyquist and Franzen get hot), while the Bruins will face the Red Wings at the Joe in Game 3, winless, and playing very, very frustrated and desperate.

Because this is the Red Wings, not the Penguins. Now granted, this was Datsyuk... but it was a wrist shot just inside the blue line, the kind of shot every goalie wants back, and it happened late in the game.

I said earlier in the week that Bergman clearly hates the Bruins worse than the Red Wings, hence he had it scheduled late so the Wings would be well rested; he also seemed to understand this series would be short.

I am mystified by how the Wings were better rested than the Bruins considering they both last played on Sunday.

I asked you two questions. What is Rask's playoff mindset? And why couldn't a superior team like the 2013 Penguins crack it? If you answer only one of these questions make it the first one.

And no, this is not an answer. A goal that gets by a goalie that he wishes he had back says nothing about a mindset.
