Have to think Marshall is mocking people that might say that.

 

Yes. I thought it was pretty obvious but...

Its not even funny how much better of a team Boston is when they don't sleepwalk as they did in the first 40 minutes. Price has been great tonight but there is some unreal puck luck going on for him especially in the OT.

While watching the game I kept thinking to myself that God really doesn't want the Bruins to win this one. Pucks going along the goal line, sitting in the crease, hitting a Bruins player after passing through Price, and Bruins missing open nets. Made for a terrific game. Props to price for keeping the Habs in it. Idk how much punishment the team can take as the series progresses, though. They were taking their fair share and dishing not much back. They should focus on Chara. If they can grind him and his 30

Mins per game down, the tables may turn.

Trotz possible for Vancouver. Apparently, Hextall possible for Vancouver and Washington as a GM. Snider is back though.

Didn't see the first goal, the second wasn't his fault though. Richards was left all alone in the slot on the second one and it was pretty much a slam dunk. The problem on the second goal is that just moments before, the Pens were called for a hand pass that wasn't even close. In fact, they had the face-off inside the Rangers' zone because of how egregious an error it was. Pens lost the draw, Rags went down and scored almost right away.

As Devils fans we've had a cursed season so it's only inevitable that it will be a MIN/Rags SCF

If the Wild beat Colorado, Chicago and the Ducks/LA back-to-back-to-back well good for them, they deserve it.  Same with the Rangers going against the Flyers, Pens and Boston/Montreal.  I still don't think either will run that gauntlet, but it wouldn't shock me if Sterio took a vacation from this board for two weeks as we all bandwagon it up for the Habs to knock off the Rangers :P

Do a side-by-side with the Rangers' season compared to our 2012, it'll make you puke...bear in mind both teams had new coaches and new systems and got off to slow starts:

 

Their first 36 games: 16-18-2, Our first 36 games: 20-15-1 (including nine of our SO wins)

Their last 46 games: 29-13-4, Our last 46 games: 28-13-5

 

They acquire St. Louis in the headline trade, switch Del Zotto for Kevin Klein and make a big secondary addition in Carcillo

We acquire Zidlicky and make secondary additions like Poni and Carter.

 

Not much is expected of either but both win their first-round series by one goal in game seven against a team most did expect them to beat.  Each faced a division foe expected to beat them in round two.

For the game or the series? Might hold for the series.

I'm talking about the game. Although 2-0 in the series would be nice too lol. Edited by MadDog2020

I'm just joking around. I think this should be a clean sweep for the Hawks.

Parise leads the playoffs in scoring. Rofl, you can't make this sh!t up. Between that and the Rags, the hockey gods just can't rub enough salt in our wounds can they?

The Rags are going to the finals... Maybe Boston can stop them, but I fear not.

 

Parise, puke

I hope and pray you're wrong. Boston has their hands full as it is, so we have to just hope they get there at this rate lol.
