I don't know why they played Andersen in goal so much late in the season.

Big mistake letting last year's back up goalie go back to Carolina and going with Garrett Sparks,who recently got demoted with only a few games remaining.

Yea, the Bruins are taking that series in 5 games.

I'd just love to see Brad Marchand get taken off the ice on a stretcher. That would make me satisfied.

Re: 2019 NHL Stanley Cup Playoff Thread

I have created a DVDTalk Stanley Cup Bracket Challenge league...

URL: https://bracketchallenge.nhl.com/leagues/dvdtalk-2019
Password: twikoff

Rules:
1. Pick a winner for each bracket pairing (First Round = 10pts, Second Round = 25, Conf Finals = 50, Stanley Cup = 100)
2. Bonus points: Pick the # of games each first round series will last (points apply only if you picked the correct series winner) (3pts for each correct pick)
3. Tie breaker: Pick the total # of goals in the Stanley Cup finals.

Entry must be submitted no later than 6:59 p.m. ET on April 10, 2019.

Please use your DVDTalk handle as your bracket name (up at the top) so we can know who's who. Good luck!

^ All of which proves Winnipeg is redundant and unnecessary.

Let's Go Blues.

Was looking like a cakewalk for Tampa after 1 period, but the Jackets have stormed back to take the lead in the 3rd.

I'm watching WPG-STL and just saw the TAM-CBJ score during intermission.

Wow. After seeing the Lightning dominate early, I never expected that would happen. LGBJ!

Great save by Binnington near the end to preserve the win for the Blues.

Pavelski with the goal off his mouth. Hope he's okay.

Nice try Jets, but you can't rattle Binnington! He is the Night King.

Lol, this thread's gonna fill up with crickets once the Bluenotes do their inevitable fold. It's fun now... hope it stays fun for 15 more wins... but a half-century of frustration tells me to hedge my optimism.

I don't have an Eastern team that I necessarily root for, except for whomever is playing against Pittsburgh (naturally). But if I were pressed into picking one as my full-time favorite, it would probably the the Jackets, as like me they're from the tolerable part of Ohio.


....hey, I love those too!

Blowout win for the Jackets. This is crazy. Kucherov got a major for boarding near the end and he could be looking at a suspension.
