That's awkward. 

He was probably afraid he was going to get licked.

Dynasties are polarizing. I mean, I would love the Devils to rip  off  5 cups in a row, but if it's not your team then it really turns you off from the sport.

Perfect example are the Cheatriots; it's now to the point where I wont even watch the Superbowl if they are in it. Kind of makes a mockery of the whole league and especially their division.

 

 

The Jets do a fine job of making themselves a mockery without needing any help from New England.

So have we stopped talking about the Playoffs?

 

There was a game tonight between the Sharks and Blues, you know?

 

Sharks win Game 1.

Bennington tonight looked like me trying to learn how to play goalie in NHL 18

I hate both teams but at least I can take solace that one of them will lose.

Since Boston is up 2-0, I want a fvcking sweep of the Canes so STAAL loses.

Mrazek with a brutal game yesterday.  I think they take Game 3 tomorrow, but lose Game 4.

I'd like to see the Blues get past the Sharks, but that first game they just looked overmatched.

There's a saying about best-of-7 playoffs that you "don't worry until you've lost at home".  Carolina should worry.

Replace "worry" with "panic" and that is more accurate right now.

Logan Couture is en fuego. Two goals in under two minutes to tie the game, one a SHG. He’s gotta be SJ’s top Conn Smythe candidate right now.

Blues up by 2 with just over 3 min left in the 3rd. Huge goal by Sundqvist on a backhand chip

Yep, looking like the Blues will get the split heading back to St. Louis.

What a series of saves by Binnington! Mask to the shoulder and then cleared! 40 ticks left

Pierre and the majority of the announce teams makes me want to not even bother watching the rest of the way. Between that and the teams left this is the most uninterested I've ever been in watching the rest of the playoffs.

I can see why you feel that way and it makes sense when last year you had the allure of Ovechkin chasing the Cup and seeing if he could finally get past the second round, the heavy favorite Bolts getting totally upset in the first round, and now arguably the best team left has a player that basically the whole world hates, but aside from all of that the Sharks/Blues series has had some pretty good hockey so far, and I wouldn't count out the Canes just yet with them going back to Carolina - it's an uphill battle for them for sure, but they're a resilient group.  

I'm not saying I'm any more interested in the playoffs this year compared to any others - to me this is just another year of post-season play that the Devils aren't a part of and I'm forced to just try to watch good hockey, which I think we're getting.

I'm still watching, I just don't care. I always watch the world championships anyway but I'm way more invested in them this year with USA finally having a solid team, many Devils playing and Hughes/Kakko playing.

It’s hockey, just watch it everyone. It’s bridging the gap to October as best as possible!

Would've preferred Carolina, not that it matters. But can you say happy to be here? The Canes didn't show enough fight in the third.

Yeah, I hear ya.  I actually want to try to catch some of the world tournament as well, before it's over.

Exactly.  The summer is long enough as it is.  Baseball can only keep my interest for so long, plus I'm a Mets fan, and the Mets are the Mets, so they'll likely be out of contention sometime around June/July.  Football will roll around in late summer, but being a Giants fan lately that means their season will also be over by the end of September, so, yeah, I'll take any hockey (especially playoff hockey), as long as I can get it.
