Rite of Spring 2019: The Chase for the Stanley Cup

Frankly if Columbus pulls off the sweep it'd be almost as big as winning the Cup anyways; they could even raise a banner - "2018-19: UPSET THE STRONGEST TEAM IN 23 YEARS" :P 

Hey now, I thought arbitrary banners was Nashville's thing?

I could easily be wrong, but I only see the Columbus-Tampa series ending in a sweep or reverse sweep. I worry that finding their game to win one cracks the code for the Bolts in a way the Beej just can't stop.

 

I'm pulling for Columbus and don't even care about how disastrous it'll be for my bracket.

It's gotta be up there, right? Stamkos hasn't scored a single point in this series. Then Kramerica posts this "one (1) even strength goal in his last 30 playoff games, and zero assists in his last 15 (updated for tonight)." There are people in Witness Protection right now who are easier to find. Hard to believe such a talented player has scored exactly as many points in this series as I have. 

Stamkos was also MIA in the ECF last year, save for a few PP tallies.

The Capitals aren't even convincingly beating the Hurricanes. They're probably going to get demolished by the Islanders in the second round.

I remarked yesterday that if we get through this series, and assuming the Isles finish the job, I’m terrified of facing them next series. They look like they’re playing complete hockey over there, and they’ve even kickstarted Jordan Eberle’s playoff career. They’re a scary team.

I don't want to say anything that I'll regret four games from now, so I won't talk about the Jackets-Ning series, but I will say this is way more fun than being on the other end. If they lose the next four games it'll be the meanest thing sports has ever done to me.

So if the Blue Jackets win the series, this will be their 1st playoff series win in franchise history, right?

Correct. And if they manage to pull it off tomorrow night, holy crap what a way to do it.

If it were to happen, it would be in my top three.

Yep, they're the only franchise who hasn't won a playoff series yet.

So I've heard the Lightning were great this year. Hadn't lost 3 games in a row all season. And now...

Truly anything can happen in the playoffs.

Matt Coo- sorry, Nazem Kadri suspended for the rest of the first round.

Caps’ PP needs to be sorted out - 0 for their last 7, including a 5 minute major last game. Canes’ PK is absolutely shutting them down.

Haven't been watching the game, did the broadcast make sure to put over how good the Raleigh fans are at eating pork in a parking lot? You gotta give me that parking lot pork.

Caps look awful in the second. Canes are first to literally everything, nothing happening offensively. Making for pretty rough watching. 

 

The clearly low-tier commentary duo and production team doesn’t help either. Brendan Burke is pretty bad, and there’s no third broadcaster to cancel out Pierre “I work where guys went to college into every other sentence” McGuire.

Svechnikov picked a fight with Ovechkin and got KTFOed for his troubles, what a moron. Choreograph a dance about that one.

What I want more than anything in the world is for the Leafs to lose and the Isles to win. Imagine the look on He-Who-Shall-Not-Be-Named’s face.

 

EDIT: There would be no look on his face. Man is so robotic.

Bergeron and Pastrnak might as well not even dress if they're going to play like they did tonight. Absolutely abysmal effort from the Bruins overall.

I want Mitch Marner's babies.

Go Leafs go!

Hey Washington,

 

You guys DO realize there's a game going on, right?
