Rite of Spring 2018-“What happens in the playoffs stays in the playoffs”

Whoever's running the Vegas Golden Knights official Twitter is great, their account is gold.

 

 

Did it get better after the previous account runner left? Because that guy was insufferable and I have them muted. Twitter got better once I stopped seeing Golden Knights tweets.

Would've been cool if Tom Wilson had been suspended in the first round for elbowing Alex Wennberg in the coconut. I don't know why we needed to wait for him to do it four more times when he already had a history of dummy bear behavior.

I think the frustration with him finally reached such a pitch that they couldn't write it off as Playoff Intensity anymore and had to give him the same suspension that Shaw got for incidental contact with a goalie.

Are you on the side who don't want to see them win the Cup in year one? Idk about before cause I only tuned in to the account, when the playoffs started.

Well that was a refreshing change of pace. Played well with speed throughout the game and didn't get complacent when the lead was 2-0 or even 3-0. I still think Vegas is getting the benefit of some soft calls at times, but I don't think it's as unreasonable as I would've seemed a few days ago in my mind with San Jose pulling this one out in seven. Just have to be Vegas in the compound with all their stupid dancing Rosebuds.

 

Now Nashville, I'mma need you to ship up and even this thing out later on. Last thing we need is having the Jets on the runway for a WCF appearance. A tired opponent is a good opponent.

Eh, the account's spending way too much time being self-congratulatory.


Exhibit A:

I don't want them to win the cup, but I am also very tired of corporate twitter accounts having a jokey, irreverent voice. The LA Kings were kind of the first to do that and it was funny for a few weeks and then like Wendy's starting started tweeting that way. Now though I'm just over it.

Terminal Twitter will be black teenagers arguing with Payless Shoe Source about Spongebob memes, which is then quote-tweeted by a reporter for the Washington Post adding "lol, big if true"

Burger King found a new Twitter spokesperson too now lol. Moonpie's account is one of the best.

 

I'm fine with it, as long as they remain respectful. I find it better than just always having a monotonous writer. Twitter, like every other social media platform, has plenty of accounts I'd be demoralized to read from regularly. Twitter becomes better, depending on who I choose to have on my TL.

Jets getting thoroughly embarrassed at home tonight, really in danger of pissing the whole series away here.

Finally having a game where Byfuglien isn't throwing guys around like rag dolls is a nice change of pace. I guess Hartnell snapped him out of Godzilla mode.

Denny's is another great twitter account, a fun scroll, if you like breakfast puns. Like a lot of breakfast puns. it's still eggcelent though.

 

VGK/SJS sure is something to watch, but unfortunately the games end around 1:00 am here in Boston, so that really figures, cause I've missed basically all of it. Eh, who needs sleep I gotta catch up :lol:.

 

I'm predicting the winner of game 4 in Boston wins the series, but there's basically no way it doesn't go 7, right? Tuukka's still garbage in other news and it's kinda the whole deal, as he goes, so goes the Bruins. Ryan Donato could slot in for Danton Heinen who's been great at doing nothing, and that's another big thing. He's electric and could be just what the B's need to wake the heck up. Should be the best game of the series so far.

I wouldn't go that far. It definitely gives the Preds an edge in what is now a best of three situation, but I'll be surprised if Winnipeg doesn't get one more.

 

I think the winner of this series takes it all. For those without a dog in the fight, it's been some great hockey.

Yeah, I don't see any way the Jets can climb out of this 2-2 hole. :rolleyes:

Washington played flat in the 3rd period; played like a bunch of dead fish. The series is tied; but the way they played, it was like they were on the verge of elimination.

 

Maybe heading back to home ice will help them...

Caps-Pens is now a best of 3.

 

This series is just barreling towards another Game 7 victory for Pittsburgh, isn't it?

Caps are done. Pens in 6. I didn't like their body language at the end of that game at all.
