2007 Stanley Cup Playoffs Official Thread

Recommended Posts

Detroit ended their 11 year sellout streak coming a few hundred short for Game 1 against Calgary.

The Devils also were about 3k short in Game 1. Kinda sad. Gonna be interesting to see how they draw in the new arena where ticket prices will be even higher. But atleast transportation to the arena will be easier.

Tampa v.s. New Jersey tonight, let's get this series tied back up before heading home Bolts.

I might be going to games 3 and 4. For Free. Yes, Free. My friend has an extra ticket for both. Hell yeah.

According to the Devils the seats that saw the biggest increase in price already have a waiting list for. So it looks like those will be sold out which is a good sign. Should be a better crowd tonight as it's a Saturday and the concerns about getting back late because of traffic is reduced (no school or work tomorrow).

I saw game 2 of Preds V Sharks and Nashville (the city not the team) almost killed the refs

Someone threw a catfish with a giveaway pom-pom in its mouth

Gnash (the mascot) is the best dancer I know

So I'm watching the NHL on NBC pregame show, and they are fawning over Sidney Crosby & the Pens. They basically lambasted Ottawa's fans for booing the guy (I mean, come on, you want them to cheer when he scores?) and they've basically been picked as the team to root for. Which in my mind makes them the team to root against. I hope Ottawa drubs them now. :P

That, and if all else fails, I wanna see Ray Emery slug someone.

You saw the montage about their first game with the virtually funeral-sounding music? I was laughing so hard during that thing. There's no way they could be serious talking about the game like that, but they were!

Can someone strangle Mike Emrick? Please?

What do you have against Doc? He's one of the best play by play men out there. I miss not being able to listen to him game practically every game.

Anyways the Pens-Sens game was great game. A nice chippy intense game what the playoffs are all about.

Sean Avery has made it onto my list of "Athletes I Despise."

Human beings with that grating voice and Musberger-esque ability to scream in response to a mundane play should not be allowed to live.

I'm watching Lightning-Devils on NHL Center Ice. With about a minute to go in the 2nd, Martin St. Louis scored an incredible goal on a shot almost parallel to the goal line to tie the score 2-2. It didn't look like it went in off Brodeur, and it certainly didn't hit a pipe. It's one of the sharpest-angle goals I've ever seen.

Barry Trotz has proven himself to be an idiot, do you honestly believe the hits on Cheechoo and Bernier were clean? And the street brawl comment was stupid, why don't you explain why you sent Tootoo and Hartnell on to fight everybody?

The Penguins fans are going crazy right now, right from the drop of the puck they've been loud, and Roberts scores 52 seconds in and that place erupted again.

Why the Sens couldn't get a deal done with Roberts is beyond me, and why they settled with Oleg Saprykin is also beyond me.

I coudln't believe that I heard some boos during the Canadian Anthem, talk about a lack of respect. In Ottawa we always applaud after the U.S. Anthem, it felt good to come away with the win. :flagcanada:

So, how is NBC/Versus going to spin this game? They were speechess after Game 1, and fell all over themselves ceding the series to the Penguins after Game 2. What can we expect after Game 3?

Easy. Brief, faint praise for the Senators' win, followed a long diatribe by Brian Engblom (That haircut has to be in violation of some international agreement) about the hit on Rob Scuderi. Of course, he couldn't get back on his high horse about Evgeni Malkin's attempted mugging of Chris Phillips later on in the game. <_< Is impartiality too much to ask for?
