Because the North is waiting for the Vancouver/Calgary games to finish it's possible, albeit highly unlikely, that the Boston/Washington series could end before Toronto/Montreal play their 2nd game.

Anyway, I don't know who I'm rooting for. Maybe Toronto so Jumbo can get a cup.

And old-man Jumbo was born 12 years AFTER the Leafs last finals appearance/win.
I think the team/city needs the cup more than Jumbo. Would be nice to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Go Leafs!

I would love to see Jumbo and Spezza win a cup, and of course, an end to my playoff misery of being a Leafs fan.

Sixty minutes of scoreless hockey between the Golden Knights and the Wild. To OT we go. 😬

Panthers fan here. This Is the best team we have had in over 20 years. Playing our cross state rivals is going to make for a great series. Went to the game last night and the hits and fights were on full display. Looking to tie it up on Tuesday. The Lightning are a great team and defending Stanley Cup champs so we will need to do our best to win the series.

Fans want to fire the coach because they don't like the lines at practice, particularly because shiny new toy Caufield was on the 5th line, and unlikely to start against the Leafs. Hockey in Montreal!

The logos take up 1/3 of the bug and are unnecessary. Don't need to see a constant shots stat either. Just flash them now and then like they did with the old bar.

The PP or 4/4 time is much harder to see than in the old scorebar. Time left/period is smaller in the new bug.

The old score bar is much cleaner and much easier to see.

Huge game for the Golden Knights tonight. Can't head to St Paul down 2-0 and hope to win two in a city they've only won three times in franchise history.
It will be interesting to see who DeBoer starts in goal. All season, when both are healthy, they alternate starts between Fleury and Lehner. But with so much on the line, after a day of rest without travel and after how well he played on Sunday, I think that you have to start Flower today. We shall see...

Huge win by the Golden Knights tonight. Fleury was awesome and Marchessault had a huge goal just 18 seconds after surrendering a first goal to the Wild. So happy we have a series now.
I look forward to going to T-Mobile on Monday with my daughter, back from college, for Game 5.

Watched most of the Knights/Wild game last night. Damn that was some fast and chaotic hockey!

That may work against them though; games like that, the better team doesn't always win. Also, the Stanley Cup playoffs are a marathon, not a sprint. Use up all your energy in a 6 or 7 game first round series, you get crushed by a well rested team that got by in 5.

Re: 2021 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

I assume the "they" you are referring to is the Knights? I'm not worried about that. They have to play their game, and the Wild have always had their number. The Knights have never won in St Paul in regulation.
Jonathan Marchessault, who scored the crucial tying goal just 18 seconds after the Wild took the lead said this before the game :

Actually, I mean either team, but since the Knights have (or HAD, to be specific) home ice advantage it's safe to assume they're the favored, or "better" team in this series.

But unless the pace slows down a bit, I predict the winner of this series will not make it to the SC finals, or even semi finals. They might be able to squeeze out one more series win, but that's it. Like I said, marathon not a sprint.

One more fucking point was all they needed to avoid the 2 seed and this awful match-up. That game where they had a 2 goal lead with 9 minutes left in St Paul late in the season and they pissed it away and somehow lost in regulation is the difference between winning the President's Cup and this knock-down, drag-out battle.

Re: 2021 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

Looks like the Blues have some discrepancies with their Covid testing that could keep out several of their best players. How about either get the testing process and it's reliability sorted out or don't do it. Don't punish one team on one side and elevate an already better team by further diminishing their competition. Colorado needs no help. Especially if you're not even going to consider postponing a playoff game based off of results. Might as well not even bother watching or caring as a fan.
