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

Ohhhh boy. American hockey fans, we are in for a treat. The first round TV schedule is out now.

 

Not only will we get games on NBC and NBCSN. Not only will we get games on NHL Network, CNBC and USA Network. For the first time, the Stanley Cup Playoffs come to...

 

The Golf Channel.

 

Yes. On April 18, Lightning/Devils Game 4 and Ducks/Sharks Game 4 will be broadcast nationally in the United States on The Golf Channel.

 

This league. Another new high.

 Well one team at the end of each round is going to be playing golf, so I guess it’s kind of appropriate.

Jets have the Wild just about doubled up in shot attempts through 26 and it hasn't amounted to anything. Hopefully this is the Dubnyk Game and the Jets win it anyway. This Minnesota roster is warm oatmeal.

Pittsburgh is absolutely manhandling the Flyers right now. Malkin and Crosby are looking unstoppable.

I need a gif of the guy letting his popcorn fly into the air on the Scheifele goal.

Who doesn't love a good rout, 6-0 Penguins.

^ the reason I wanted nothing to do with them. The regular season doesn't matter to for the Penguins. Any notion that "oh this team actually matches up well with the Penguins and could win" is foolhardy. They're the quintessential switch flipping team and the regular season results are meaningless. People never learn.

Well since the Penguins wanna look like the Bruins so bad maybe they'd like to coast to 3-0 in this series only to lose the remaining 4, the last of those by giving up 4 unanswered to lose 4-3. That'd be kinda cool.

Please for the love of all that is holy in sports, anybody but the Penguins

So the Winnipeg Whiteout happened tonight and yet the players on the ice had to wear their navys.

 

The Jets really need to get permission from the NHL to swap so they could wear their whites at home. Don't the Dallas Cowboys wear their road white like 80-85% of the time? If they can do it, so can the Jets for this occasion only.

I don't see how that would be an issue for them. I know Vegas wore their whites a couple of times at home this season.

Yeah, Jets definitely need to be in the white at home -- not just in the playoffs (though that would make it special), but all year long.

 

Congrats to the Winnipeg faithful who are all-in on them, unlike me, and have been with them since the old team, unlike me. A Jets championship wouldn't make the most people happy, but would make some people the happiest. Hey, just fifteen more!
