Like I said, there are 8 of them, and you are correct about the 2002 Maple Leafs:

2010 Canadiens
2009 Hurricanes (yuck)
2003 Wild
2002 Maple Leafs
2002 Avalanche
1994 Maple Leafs
1993 Maple Leafs
1990 Blackhawks


Yeah I wasn't doubting there were eight, I just said I didn't remember most of them. I can see why since most are in the West and some were before I was really a hardcore hockey fan lol. I should have remembered the Habs, for some reason I thought one of their series went six games. But yeah they also won two Game 7's on the road and then got wasted in 5 by the Flyers.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

BTW off a tip from someone on TG's blog, I went and looked at the replay of game 5 on gamecenter. At the 7:57 mark of the third period it looks like a woman sitting behind the Devils bench somehow accidently dropped her puck into the Devils' bench area. Deboer picked it up to throw it back but Kovy quickly grabbed the puck out of his hand and threw it onto the ice. The woman then started banging on the glass and calling Kovy rude. Just a little funny interesting tidbit. I wish I could post the video of it.

How do you accidentally drop a puck over a pane of glass that is taller than you? Lol

I don't know if that's how it got into the bench or if there was a slight opening somewhere or something.

That's interesting. I did notice there being a woman sitting behind the Devils bench who at one point was making some animated gestures. I thought maybe she had been yelling at DeBoer, but I wasn't sure because I had only caught the tail end of it. I even mentioned it to my wife who was watching the game with me but hadn't been paying attention at the time.

Oh, now that you mention it, I also saw this. I figured she just realized she lived in or around Philadelphia.

Yeah, I'm not sure if it was her puck originally or not - but you can clearly see DeBoer lean down and pick a puck up right in front of her and then Kovy quickly grabs it and Chucks it (no pun intended) onto the ice. The woman behind him can clearly then be seen banging on the glass and saying, "That's rude....that's so rude." And Kovy definitely did whatever he did to provoke her. Maybe what you saw happened before this and she was taunting the bench the whole game or something and Kovy was annoyed. Again, I wish I could post the video but it's gamecenter so...

Found it ... it seems like DeBoer is trying hard to control his laughter while the woman is fuming, he even casually looks back non-chalantly ... its hilarious.

I remember that, the puck went out of play on the bench and she wanted the puck and she got mad when they ignored her haha

This topic isn't worth regurgitating time after time. Matteau clearly is ignorant on the topic and refuses to open his mind to the possibility of it being correct. Fenwick/CORSI certainly helped predict NJ and LA's rise in the playoffs and probably won me 200 dollars in a hockey pool.

Not ignorant at all. Very aware of the concept. Just because I don't buy it, doesn't mean I am ignorant to the topic. You sound like a soccer fan by saying this. Anytime you a critical of soccer, you get the standard, "You just don't understand the game. It is the most popular sport in the world...yada yada yada." As for LA and NJ, how can you say Fenwick and Corsi explain their success when they have only played 9 and 12 games respectively? The intent is to make predictions over a long period of time. 2 play-off series is certainly not a long period of time.

BUT, what were their fenwick and corsi numbers compared to the teams they beat in the first 2 rounds and then the team which they lost?

The predictions came pre-playoffs.

http://www.broadstre...ck-nhl-playoffs

LA was the best team in the league heading into the playoffs.

NJ is the best team so far in the playoffs (that's still in the playoffs), but again, you can't draw too much from that because the schedules are so unbalanced.

It's a real shame there's a 45% chance we won't see you until July 1, Matteau.
