  1. God I hate how most hockey players give these nonanswers. Subban bucks the trend by being entertaining, and gets shit on for it. This is one of the reasons why the NHL isn't as big as it could be. Also while McDavid and Matthews are absolute joys to watch, they're probably even more robotic than Crosby in their interviews. Granted, it won't determine whether I will watch a game, but I want more guys like Subban, Ovi, Laine (hopefully?) showing their personality off the ice. It certainly adds to the experience, for me anyway.
  2. Polar opposite to their win last year. In 2016 they overwhelmed their opponents into submission. This time they just managed to survive til the end. Personally I think they shouldve awarded it to the goalie tandem, but who knows how the mvp voting goes. I'm disappointed because I wanted to see Subban win a cup. But he balled out in these playoffs, along with the rest of his mates. And he has a solid shot of getting back here next year. At any rate, we now have TWO Time champ Phil Kessel. Praise be.
  3. Malkin is the first player in 8 ytears to score a goal and get a fighting major in a SCF game. The last player to do so? Malkin. I love funny stats like these. Also a "Malkin hat trick" needs to be a thing - a goal, fight, and a stupid fucking penalty.
  4. In his defense, the second goal was impossible to stop, the third was an own goal, and the fourth was a good shot while Rinne hadn't made a save in 37 min. That was just one of the strangest games I've ever seen...
  5. I wouldn't be happy at all if I were a pens fan. The Preds just owned possession and probably should've won this one. The Preds will win the series if they keep up this level of play.
  6. What a fantastic fucking hockey game. Hats off to the Pens and Sens for a titanic series. Now we've got a great matchup incoming. Awesome forwards v awesome defensemen. Elite goalie v elite goalie. In the words of Bart Scott, CAN'T WAIT!
  7. Eh to be fair he's been getting similar treatment his whole career. Not saying that it's fair (it absolutely isn't) just that it isn't that out of the ordinary. But that penalty on Rust was absolute garbage.
  8. Well I'll be damned. Sens shouldn't have had a sniff of a chance in this game, but Anderson was having none of that. I'll just throw out my Cup predictions. If Sens make it, I'd say they lose in 4-5 to Nashville. If Pittsburgh makes it, they lose in 6-7. Doubt either team will survive that steamroller. (I have a bias against Canadian teams other than my Oilers, if that wasn't apparent )
  9. Would you say that you...like it, you love it, and want some more of it?
  10. Well Boucher just put on a clinic of how to destroy a goalie's confidence...dafuq was he doing pulling him and putting him back in? I find it hard to believe the sens come back from this. Edit: and it's Anderson's birthday. Poor guy, what a gift from Guy Boucher lol
  11. Aw jeez it was such an innocent looking hit too. Who's #1C now? Jarnkrok? Ouch... Anyways, how bout the conundrum for the Pens in net? "Oh, our cup-winning goalie had a bad game? Why not throw in our OTHER cup-winning goalie?" And Murray played pretty damn well. I sorta forgot how good that kid was. Still doesn't excuse that absolute dumpster fire they call a defense corps (although dumpster fires at least give warmth).
  12. He's actually quite good from what I've heard, so you guys get to look forward to that. Agreed, while Steigs might've been a good guy, he wasn't a good broadcaster. I still remember his 'not as hard as Hoby Baker's plane' joke (seen early in the vid here). While I found it funny, you just don't say that as a pro commentator lol. In other news, jeez the Preds are on a mission. They look very strong, having outshot the Ducks 40-20. If Gibson doesn't remain on top of his game, this series will be over very quickly. And frankly, I hope it is. It'd be great to see the Ducks floundering to their playoff exit, because I'm still salty haha
  13. Yeah, wtf was Gibson doing there? I thought for a second Arvidsson maybe held him up, but that wasn't the case. I mean, Vince Neil could've walked that one in.
  14. This Preds team looks scary as fuck. Their offense just doesn't give the puck up and Rinne is a brick wall. I think the Ducks were lucky to be in this game. Outshot 46-29, with Gibson making several quality saves. If it weren't for his play, they would've be blown off the ice today. (Rinne played very well also, but the Preds had much more offense).
  15. Larsson is an absolute workhorse and I'm glad he's on the squad. He's been steady on the back end, especially later in the season and in the playoffs. Makes the trade easier to digest, but I still wish we had Hall. Hope he's been good for you guys in NJ. As for the remaining series, let's see... Penguins in 7 Preds in 5 (partly due to me being salty, partly due to Nash being a juggernaut) Side note: I'm kinda wary of the Sens. Round 1 saw alot of experts/fans writing them off, and then many people thought the Rags would roll through the Sens. This team seems to defy expectations, and it wouldn't surprise me at all to see them upset Pittsburgh. That trap system could prove to be very disruptive to the Penguins.
