  1. I’m okay with the official ruling that to be a trip. What I have problem with is that they let a couple of similar plays go for the Oilers minutes before that. It sent the message about the level at which penalties would be called, then they seemingly didn’t keep to that standard.
  2. It’s been a good night for Swedes so far.
  3. I wonder when was the last time that 3 of the final 4 teams had never won a Stanley Cup? And for that matter, there's only one Cup among the remaining teams combined. I can't imagine that's happened too many times. It's great for your team to win a championship no matter what, but among the remaining teams, the fanbase for whom it might be "least special" to win is probably Vegas. They don't know what it's like to suffer yet, lol.
  4. So... Mets season now. What’ve I missed? Kidding. This has been a very fun start, aside from theatrics with Harvey. Bash the Braves! Let’s go Mets!
  5. We’re back where we belong! I say that, but in reality this was quite unexpected at the beginning of the season. And amazingly, other than Toronto, we still could be facing any of the other teams that have clinched.
  6. 538 published an article about the statistical support for Hall's candidacy. https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/should-the-devils-one-man-machine-be-the-nhl-mvp/
  7. Enjoyed listening to this one end as I drove from work to my next activity. Same deal as last year; hopefully we stay healthy this time. Let’s go Mets!
  8. A lot of people said that the NHL got political with having Pride Nights last year, and I'm sure folks will say that again this year.
  9. Do the owners have no concerns about their business relationship with NBC (the Olympic broadcaster)?
  10. Is it an imposing lineup? Nah. But they've got power potential, and if the pitchers stay healthy (maybe even become better?) this could be a great season.
  11. Are you talking about the calls on breakaways ……… or Dano?
  12. Instead of crediting McDavid and celebrating this season, those fans are looking backwards and blaming Hall? That sounds like evidence of a personality disorder.
  13. Reminds me of last night when it looked like Taylor Hall's high sticking penalty looked like it may have been missed, but then the Oiler sought him out and started fighting him to somehow earn the pp. Only this time the roles were swapped and so was which team the refs decided to nail. Because, you know, consistency.
  14. Outshot 30-16 in regulation. We're LUCKY to have a point!
  15. I wish they could continue OT until someone wins, even though the US is more likely to win via shootout. (shots 17-7 Canada in the OT)
  16. There was probably some hope that the offer would drive sales to Devils fans up and convince ticket holders to show up rather than resell. Unfortunately, with the way things are going, many will bail, allowing Philly's filthiest to snap them up.
  17. Third game in four nights for Nashville, with the previous two going to a shootout. At least that's favorable. I wonder if the Predators had this one circled though, given how it must have felt 2.5 weeks ago.
  18. This one wasn't like the terrible losses that preceded it. In those, the team looked like it lacked focus and the ability to execute its own game plan. Lots of good chances didn't find their way in tonight, and the first Ottawa goal was just luck. A loss is a loss though.
  19. It was going to his chest. He moved his glove to catch it, and the redirection put it straight through where his glove had been. Of course he was upset.
  20. It was deflected. I don't see what he could have done about either goal tonight.
  21. The first school that comes to my mind when I hear that chant is Marshall, not Penn State. I don't know where the chant originated, but I'm sure it was a long time ago, and it sounds like many schools and sports teams do their own version of it now. I don't think that the connection between what they (Devils) are trying to do and Penn State is as strong as you make it out to be. You probably feel that connection is very strong. Eye of the beholder on this one, I believe.
  22. Oh well. It was a fun and surprising ride to just get into the postseason. We all knew this team wouldn't really be able to win it all, not with the rotation having been blown up by injuries. Got to improve the lineup and hope to be healthier next year. We won't be able to keep the good young starters (and that's assuming that they all stay good) together forever.
