I really enjoyed the game, but, man, that was looong, LOL.

 

I was rooting for the Red Wings. But considering all of the Leafs fans in the house, I was mildly surprised that we didn't hear more "Go Leafs Go" chants.

I hate what NBC has done to Doc.  They've clearly told him to oversell every play, it's definitely noticeable watching him call the games.

He was that way with the Devils to an extent. He's been gone for a few years now and we were so used to him that it might make it more noticeable now. Plus, one can guess he was pretty excited to be calling the WC as he genuinely loves the sport.

Not so bad. Would play into our favor if anything, actually. It would affect a faster team much more than a slower team.

 

Agree 100%. This outdoor hockey, especially with the snow, is all about strong board play and slow careful passing. The faster players were not able to get going.

 

The Zubruses and Jagrs, Berniers, and Carters will be key. Dirty goals.

Disagree... They controlled the play for about 3/4 of the game. Deserved way more than they got out of that game (sounds familiar). I'd say they deserved 4 out of 4 of the points in their past two games vs. the Leafs, and only got 3 (while Leafs got 3 also, which affects the standings).

Listening to people at work that never watch or go to hockey games talk about the Winter Classic and how much they enjoyed it shows why it is such a brilliant PR move for the league.  I remember when I was a kid and practically all of the bowl games were on Jan. 1.  Now, the NHL has 2 lesser bowls on ESPN and ESPN 2 to compete with between 1-5 p.m., before the Rose Bowl starts.  A perfect setup for the league. 

 

Having the snowfall throughout the game really does make it 10x better.  Loved watching the game yesterday.

I started watching the game on CBC but switched to NBC due the cable cam. It seems they finally figured out how to properly use that cam. I really think it could be the next big thing for hockey and the NHL. It gave a really cool perspective that I've never seen before.

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

Point is they used to be elite, since Lidstrom left they haven't been

the rangers getting embarrassed by a team we recently best almost makes up for our loss tonight IMO. Is that normal?

It's crazy what a player like Crosby can do for a team.

The Penguins don't have a ton of raw scoring talent, outside of Neal and Malkin. But you put anyone on a line with Crosby.. They instantly become 20-30 goal scorers.

not that you canc ompare elias with crosby... but someone that is great at the game that knows what the hell theyre doing and can read plays can really help spark talent of others ... elias does this as well, until you screw him over on a line with someone like berneir who has been set up several times in front of a wide open net and doesnt know what to do with the puck...god i hope he doesnt get resigned time for some new inventory
