To be fair, I don't think they're showing fans "somewhere", I believe they're literally showing the fans outside the stadium, who went to be part of the action but weren't able to secure a spot inside with a seat.  At least that's what they do with Tampa.   I think it's kinda cool, shows how many people are supporting the team and want to be part of the atmopshere even if they aren't one of the lucky 20,000 to get to go inside.

They were showing fans in Central Park I believe

My guess is no. 

That’s what I’m hanging onto.  I know the Blues needed a whopping 26 games to win their Cup (they played 13 games through their first two rounds).  I think that’s as bad as it’s gotten for a champion.

It would be fun if the Rangers played 4 seven-game series and lost the last game.

I hope Vasy shuts them out in 4 straight. They're about to be outmatched and finally have to face real goaltending.

ESPN refuses to show the full sequence where Kreider just happens to hit Raanta before the injury. 

They also wouldn’t show how Jarvis was hit leading to the too many men until way later. I think Ferraro said Jarvis had a “broken skate”. Yeah or he was beheaded, one of the 2

Has any team that needed 14 games to win their first two series ever won a Cup?  Or even managed to get to one? 

Barry Melrose's Kings played 19 games, including a grueling 7-game series against Toronto in the conference finals, before playing the Canadiens in the finals and losing in 5. Still, they played 12 games in the first two rounds, not 14.

Continuing the logic here ... I'd be surprised if anyone besides the 2019 Blues lost 10 playoff games and won a Cup.

If the Devils had won the Cup in 2001, they would have set the record for most losses by a SC Champ, with 9.

I didn't know that! I just checked. The Kings lost 10 games in 2014 and won the Cup. The team they beat, the Rangers, lost 12 playoff games, which is tied for the most playoff losses with 2015 Tampa and 2020 Stars.

So just the 2014 Kings and the 2019 Blues then, with ten playoff losses.

And those Kings needed the max 21 games to get to the SCF…they then took out the Rangers in five.  So there is one Champ who took a rather unconventional route to the Cup…dammit.

That entire playoffs was wild. The Sharks were up 3 games to none on the Kings in the first round. LA played all of their game 7s on the road.

Probably the least deserving team of the ECF in recent memory.

That said, they'll probably find a way to beat the Lightning.

Trouba will try to injure Stamkos. I'm calling it.

Personally give me a bunch of pussies with some 🤡 named Geerston rather than a guy like  Trouba, right. Again that hit was clean with a bad result and the injury part is unfortunate. I'm sure Scott Stevens would be proud of the hits Trouba has thrown this season at a time when there's more babysh!t soft play than ever before. I think the fact that we saw I believe exactly zero of those hits thrown by our team exasperates the issue year after year. And the fact he chose to only want to play for the rags obviously means he sucks and is always going to be wrong. Obviously. 

With the team we have we should vote for removing hitting completely from the game so from that perspective I get it and that's the sad part. But for now I'll take watching and appreciating the playoffs (again my horse was put down by basically  late November) including the incredible offense, great goaltending, sh!t goaltending, overall intensity, and the occasional bone crushing hits which remind me of days when we were actually good. Hate that he was hurt but if my team has the balls and the opportunity to make those hits I damn well want them to make them. Sucks being the bug in the windshield. Someday maybe we'll have a hitter,  remember all the videos of how tough Bahl was going to be.

Scott Stevens threw those hits when they were legal and when we didn’t know as much about the long term effects of concussions. The word is exacerbates not exasperates. Nobody is advocating for there to be checking removed, but everyone should have a problem with the way Trouba has flown around with his elbow up all postseason. 

other than that you nailed it lmao
