Re: 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Looks like Ottawa/Boston is getting screwed-over a little by the schedule. If both Atlantic series go the full 7 games, the Rangers/Habs survivor will have two extra days of rest. If they go 7 and Rangers/Habs go 4, it'll be eight extra days.... but if you flop it (Sens/Bruins go 4, Rangers/Habs go 7), they'll only have 5 extra days. Kinda rough, considering that both series start simultaneously.

Re: 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

No confidence in the Sharks after the way they limped into the playoffs. Plus with the Oilers playing so well, it's hard to see this series going deep.

Re: 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Sportsnet and CBC are probably happy to see all of the Canadian teams in the first round. Whether they are going to be any in the second round is another story...

Re: 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

And some bonus hockey in Edmonton. Thought for sure after the Sharks fell behind 2-0 after the first period that this would be a bad game, but they did a great job of limiting the Oilers' chances in the last two periods.

That was awesome. In OT, just put shots on goal. Caps dominated the 3rd and OT.

Yeah, looked like same old same old 10 minutes in. But then again, the Caps don't choke in Game 1s.

I don't think the Blues could be any further into the Wild's head.

Re: 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Of course, you never underestimate the Blues ability to do something incredibly stupid like give the Wild a 5 on 3 PP when the Blues are in control of the game.

Ugh. Power play not so good. 2 shorthanded goals allowed tonight in a 2-0 loss. Ahh well, I'll take a split on the road any day.

Re: 2017 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs

Calvert just got a one-game suspension.
Linky: http://deadspin.com/matt-calvert-sus...tom-1794358724

Blue Jackets winger Matt Calvert will miss the next game of Columbus’s inevitable sweep at the hands of Pittsburgh after levying a stick-breaking cross-check on the Penguins’ Tom Kuhnhackl as last night’s 4-1 bruising came to a merciful end.

NHL Player Safety declared Calvert went beyond a common cross-check in that the play happened nowhere near the puck and that Calvert proceeded to then knock Kuhnhackl to the ice afterward; Player Safety stated the main factor in deciding the punishment, though, was that Calvert appeared to be “sending a message” for the next game. Now, the NHL has sent its.
