Guy who likes hockey more than basketball preferred watching hockey over basketball.  That's shocking.

Poor little butt-hurt baller. You know I'm right, doncha?😘

I really miss being able to clearly hear the goal horns.

And here we go!

 

A quick goal, a fight... My god, it's like 4 months of rust was shaken off in that quick burst of awesome. Thank you, hockey.

Mike Smith definitely not playing like he did the last time he played the Hawks in the playoffs.

 

EDIT: Blackhawks playing like its 2010 now

Some home ice advantage for the Oilers, huh? Having the Blackhawks goal horn is hilarious

For as good of a career Corey Crawford’s had, he’s got the worst taste in pads.  I imagine there’s some hockey pseudo science in going all black everything, but ugh.

The Habs are winning the Cup this year.

If the Habs upset the Penguins, give up their shot at Lafrenière, only to get obliterated in the second round, that would be the worst.

 

This new system puts teams in a position never seen before. Every qualified team are legitimately in it for not one but two prizes being given to two of the lucky teams: The Stanley Cup and The First Overall Pick.

 

I'm a true Canadiens fan. Under normal circumstances, I'd be all in for the Habs winning the Cup, if they were in standard playoffs. But now in this scenario, they have to make the Cup finals and win it, at this point. If they're going to sacrifice their shot at this franchise foward, they have to win it all and anything less will be deemed an unacceptable failure. They've been missing an elite player to build around for decades and plus he's from Quebec, that's something a lot of fans want as well. This is a unique situation, that's for sure.

Although I was pretty happy with what I saw from the Caps in their exhibition game, I have serious doubts about Todd Reirden's ability to lead the team to the cup as head coach. Too often throughout this season, it seemed as though he was just letting the star players do what they wanted instead of actually coaching. Plus, the defense under his leadership has been atrocious. Sure, Holtby could've played a little better throughout the regular season* but the defense in front of him was often a huge liability. (I thought Reirden was supposed to be a good defensive-minded coach when we hired him, or at least that's what everyone who seemed to know more than me said.) Either way, if the playoffs continue without a hitch (knock on wood) and Ovechkin isn't lifting the Cup, I want Reirden fired. 

 

*I thought he played well in the exhibition game, to be fair

I've somehow gotta get myself to cheer for the Leafs for the first time ever tonight. I will lose my mind if they get Lafreniere.

I honestly want the Rangers to win the cup.

Then again, the Leafs will be the other team to cheer with should the former be eliminated by Carolina.

 

But in all for the sake of the on-ice product, I can truly hear every players' voices, skates hitting ice and pucks getting slapped because the fans' noise almost covers these three.

The Blue Jackets pitch a shutout in a playoff game, what a truly strange world we live in.

Until this post I’d forgotten that they gave up at least 3 goals in something like their first 23 playoff games ever. Brave new world.

This also means the Coyotes have now won a postseason game more recently then the Leafs. There's something immensely amusing about that. 😜

Remember when the Blue Jackets were supposed to be bad because the lost so many players in the offseason? 

 

When Bobrovsky got traded, I thought that would be the end of the Jackets sneaking into the playoffs for a while. But then, Elvis got his shot between the pipes and then all of a sudden, I remember seeing a headline on sports news somewhere that he got multiple straight shutouts a row.
