Well, let's hope that the Ducks have gotten over whatever funk they were in & buckle down tonight.  At the very least don't lose & head back to Dallas knowing that potentially Teemu's last home game was a loss.  A win would be much better as then you'd guarantee him at least one more game at the Pond (either game 7 or Round 2).

/and please no repeats of last night when my intartube thingie went tits up.
//not being able to watch any games nor get any updates here on Fark was horrible...

I hope the Monster gets another start, that loss was not his.  No one was stopping that OT winner, well maybe someone really slow to get into position... Marc- *cough* Andre *cough* Fleury *choke*

How important is home ice? Playing football at your home stadium, sure, there's a distinct advantage there, but other than the crowds yelling your team's name...I'm not seeing the advantage.

Lando Lincoln: How important is home ice?


Apparently for Detroit it's not all that important.

ZING!


Still though, ask any hockey player where they would rather play Game 7 of a series, and I'd be surprised if even 1 time out of 10 they said on the road.
 
2014-04-25 11:47:43 AM  
I'm looking forward to more Ducks/Stars nastiness. That series has turned ugly.

Love it.

That's not really the question, though. Sure, it's nice to be at home with the fans screaming your name, but are there any real disadvantages to being on the road like there are in football?

On ice advantage, nothing really tangible I'd think.  Off ice though there are I'd think quite a few advantages for the home team.  The home locker room/training equipment is probably much nicer than the visitors.  You aren't in a hotel room living out of your suitcase but can go home & sleep with your wife/girlfriend (maybe both if you're really lucky...) & see the family*.  You know where to go to eat, etc, etc, etc, the tiny little things that might add up to something.

/*of course going home instead of to a hotel could be a distraction - the yard needs mowed, dishwasher is broken, kids want help with homework, etc. Now he probably won't be mowing the lawn or fixing the dishwasher & someone will be called to take care of it.  However even the impression that all isn't right at home might be enough to distract him slightly at game time.  I've heard of some coaches keeping the team in a local hotel even for home games late in the playoffs.

6 o'clock game time. Taking the afternoon off, gonna get the ball rolling to put an offer in on a house, then it's time to get nice.

Take me home alcohol, you're my only hope.

This year it seems to be "Sharks by 6"  Though technically they've only won by 5 so far.

There aren't huge differences, but there are differences, exactly where the bench doors are, the "bounce" off the boards is a bit different (the phrase "dead boards" comes to mind), the acrylic strip at the bottom of the boards is different, and the puck comes off it differently and the Zamboni doors are in different places in different rinks and there can be some really wonky puck bounces off those doors.  The dressing rooms are usually pretty nice for the home teams, and pretty utilitarian for the away team, too.
And don't discount the loud crowd either.

Slight differences in the rink, maybe -- knowing where the boards are a little softer, where there's a seam with a ridge for funny rebounds.  The old Boston Garden used to be about 10 feet shorter than regulation (grandfathered in), so presumably being more used to that might have helped.

Also the fark rules state no torture images and I suspect fake torture counts and that id what some of those pictures depict. Bondage torture is when theyre in painful positions.

If FARK had a general problem with the pictures as a whole, they would have said/done something last year.  If there is one that crosses the line it'll be excised in due course.  Don't you worry your little head over it.  Don't worry the big one either.  We are monitored.

The "tied" pics are getting a bit out of hand. Last year's playoffs threads didn't have the deluge of bondage pics that this year's threads seem to have. I don't mind them but when other people are looking over my shoulder when I'm watching hockey and reading Fark, people think I'm in a bondage thread instead of a hockey thread.
