(NHL Playoffs) Rite of Spring 2017: can't go on, no, I'll go on

1,376 posts in this topic

In the first 3 seasons of this current playoff format, 5 of the 6 teams that won game 1 of the conference finals actually ended up losing the series.

 

Only NYR over MTL in 2014 bucked that interesting trend.

Oh man I didn't even know there was a game tonight. That can't be a good thing for the NHL.

Fun fact:

The Nashville Predators now have more goals and Wins in the Western Conference Finals than the Minnesota Wild :(

Ok I'm away from the TV now, but apparently the golf tournament has pushed the start time of the hockey game back. They can't put the golf on the GOLF channel they own?(This isn't even the Masters, etc)

Might as well get this out of the way.

 

4 years ago today: Leafs/Bruins. Game 7. 4-1. You know the rest.

Fun Fact 2:

 

J-G Pageau scored more goals in one game than the Blackhawks have in the entire series versus the Preds.

 

What happened to the Blackhawks?

"The guy drafted after Sidney Crosby" scores the overtime winner for Ottawa in Game 1.

 

Maybe Pittsburgh was tired from Wednesday and the 7-game series, but Ottawa does what they do best....do just enough to hang around and win by a goal.

When did the admiral wake up from his cryogenic sleep? Why does he only seem to hate hockey when the Blackhawks are out of it? Does Ice Cap get notifications on his phone whenever admiral posts just so he can "like" them? So many mysteries.

 

This cracked me up. Nicely done, Senor Six.

You can't let Ottawa hang around.

 

If it's close, tied, late, or OT, they've been finding ways.

I was primarily referring to Ottawa. Neither Anaheim, or Nashville are big draws. They can probably spin Nashville's "historic run," and PK's general marketability, into more viewers, of the two, for the SCF.

why would they want to market one of the league’s best, most personable players, though? :upside:

Well, last night sucked. I don't have a good feeling about this series; the Sens' coach also coached the Lightning in 2011, where we lost in seven. His trap game works to near perfection. Gonna have to win this series in sloppy fashion.

Pretty big mental error there by Gibson, goals aren't much easier then that.
