Refs in MTL/NYR seem to have forgotten that hitting from behind is a penalty.

As an aside, and I guess it's because I don't really care for either team, but by far, this Rangers/Canadiens series is the series I'm least excited about.

Okay I'll stfu about game three now. :P 

 

My ticket connection was mistaken so I didn't go to this game. We have tickets to a not-yet-real game six. Halfway there. Let's make it real!

 

about the game: Bob has been complete ass this series. The only time I've seen him worse was the start of last year. I have no idea what his deal is. It's baffling. Also, guys like Alex Wennberg need to stop making panicked, bad passes just inside the blue line. You can't give this team extra chances and nearly half their goals have come off of errors on the breakout. Under discussed thing that made their 16 game win streak happen: they just didn't make mistakes, forced or unforced, like that. Their breakout was so good during that stretch.

 

The rest of the way if they play like tonight, if fluery plays like tonight, if they can get back to that crisp passing game they won fifty games with, and get Bobrovsky's head out of his butt, then it's not over. That's a lot of ifs. Whatever. Just glad they weren't swept. This should've been a second round series.

WHAT???? I thought that the Blues skaters were stealing it??? @Ice_Cap Can you explain??? 

 

I was poking fun at you, dummy. If you know this happens, why are we being so whiny about it?

 

Score some goals. Get "Duuuuuubs" to make an extra save. He's the "better" goalie right?

 

But none of that matters. Bruce said he'd tell the Wild to play like it's a Game 7, which is, like, the worst possible advice Bruce could give his teams.

 

(Also, you know why we're all gonna give you a ton of crap when you post stuff like that in the thread right? You talked up your Wild all season. It was gonna be different. They're a really good team. They're a great team when they're not playing like a bad team because they're actually good. Really!. You swear! And every time we told you to be careful, beware, this could happen, the team could Boudreau at any moment, you would push back so hard again swearing it was different and they wouldn't... Well here they are.)

Future advice: Take a page from my book of being a Blues fan. Have high hopes but prepare yourself to be disappointed - don't set any expectations and keep your refrigerator stocked full of alcohol. If they win? Celebrate! When and.... oh they will, Lose? Comfort drink yourself to sleep.

 

You are welcome!

Oh good, the lone west coast game has a 5-goal margin.  I can get to sleep at a reasonable time tonight.

Wonder if Draisaitl gets suspended for that.

Looks like Lucic is passing along his techniques to his teammates

I hate Kassians facial hair so much, I want to go fourth grade bully style and pin him down and shave his hairy ass and glue it to his face.

 

Otherwise, good to see this series likely becomes a best of three now. Oilers have still been the better team overall but the Sharks are showing they have some fight left in them. Hopefully they can maintain some for the remaining games.

Would not be surprised at all to see more cheap shots in the third period from noted idiots Kassian, Lucic, and/or Nurse. Never noticed in their wallowing at the bottom, but the Oilers are pretty darn unlikable.

They didn't get good until they picked up those unlikeable players.

And they're not good because of them.
