how was the Flyers' PK this year? that'll be a HUGE factor in the series

if the Flyers contain the Caps' PP, its going 7 games IMO

so-so. I think if we can contain the Caps to one PP goal a game we'll be fine. Obviously, all the attention has to be on Ovechkin. They do that, and they'll be fine.

yup, they'll need to shade their diamond or box to the left circle for sure

i expect lots of hits and lots of goals in the series...especially if the officiating in last night's games in any indication of how the 1st round will be called

Kuhnhackl
Sheary
Zatkoff

need the power play and the zone exits to get much better and i think they'll be fine

I didn't see any jitters from the pens either.
It took a fluke dual simultaneous penalty for the rangers to break the ice.
sluggish, sure, but not jittery

yea agreed

Rangers should feel ok after that game though. these are 2 pretty evenly matched teams and NY played well, just couldn't finish

shaping up to be a fun series...if the Rangers win on Saturday, it's on big time

if the Pens win, it'll be very hard for the Rags to comeback...i don't see a repeat of 2014 happening

Lundqvist seeing an eye specialist, status unknown for Saturday.

Maybe jittery was the wrong word - perhaps tentative might be better. Like you said, entering the zone was a major issue. Do you think they'll maintain the 11 forwards 7 defense setup that used last night (assuming there are no changes in player availability)

as long as Lovejoy keeps playing well, i see no need to change it up until Malkin comes back

now, when Malkin comes back, they'll have a HUGE decison to make because the blue line is playing so well

i mean, Letang, Daley, Maatta, and Cole are untouchable at this point

so you'd have to dress 2 guys out of Shultz, Lovejoy and Dumoulin

glad i'm not the coach

Caps PP always seems to abandon them in the playoffs anyway

They're a bit too predictable. They certainly have the weapons to score from basically anywhere on the pp but clearly they prefer the Ovie set up. For good reason too I guess, he scores from there a lot. The 1-3-1 has become so stationary unfortunately. Almost zero rotation. It's become somewhat easier to defend.

yep, the Pens figured out the Caps' PP, thats for sure

Ovie 0 points against the Pens this year and Caps are 0-7 on the PP in the season series

but the Pens have a killer PK

Flyers i guess are middle of the pack

I asked the person throwing the party (the family who fostered her when she came to American and her HS basketball coach) if I wouldn't be imposing if I came over to get the player's reaction when she's picked.

Any chance she gets picked first? :lol Then you can introduce her to the great Canadian delicacy known as hockey.

Wow, I thought you were joking. No way in hell I would miss an NHL playoff game for some silly draft. At least try and snag that girl from UCONN - sure she is arrogant and comes off bitchy but she can dominate.

The Huskies (38-0) have been nearly unbeatable since Stewart arrived. They lost four games her freshman year and only one since. The win over Syracuse was the 75th straight for UConn, all by double figures. Stewart and her fellow seniors went 24-0 in NCAA tourney games, too.

Stewart earned the most outstanding player of the Final Four all four years of her career. No other women's player has won it more than twice and only Lew Alcindor did it three times on the men's side.

The three-time AP Player of the Year has said it is up to others to decide her place in women's college basketball lore. There is no denying she is the most accomplished player ever, winning more titles than fellow UConn greats Diana Taurasi and Maya Moore, who watched from the stands at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

I want them swept. Badly.

Cool story bro...


Seriously though, not all of our fans are like this. Having said that, I have come to realize we have some pretty dumb fans who can't be reasoned with. I find it really annoying to talk to Rangers fans that have an unrealistic view of where this team is. We don't lose because the league is "getting us." We lose because this team is not that good lol. We are solid, but I think you would have to be really high on something to have ever thought this team was a cup contender.

I kind of get it though, a lot of our fans are also Yankees fans....and they are the worst.

I'll save you the time. All UCONN players in the first round. Next story.


Have fun though! Your job is awesome!

Haha I'm only going because this girl is considered local and has a great backstory (poor girl from Jamaica, comes to US to learn basketball, will become pro player.)

It's one of those things where this story is a big deal for this girl and all that but no one really gives a shit. It's like someone getting named to the Olympic team... but it's for curling.

Hamonic will be in tonight. He was dearly missed last year. I can't wait see the impact he will make. I truly believe he is the type of player whose heart , skill and determination win rounds. I hope he can help win us one.

don't you fucking put down curling

don't you dare

Re: The NHL Thread
 
None of these games mean much to me but I will be riveted as always, plan on cheering for:

LA so Sarah is happy
Washington so Barbs gets over his jitters
Florida because I hope to see Jagr make some noise
I also hope the Stars and Wild beat the hell out of each other and go to a couple OT's!

i see FLA vs. NYI going one of two ways

the Isles skate circles around an inexperienced team or it goes 7 games

no way the Panthers run away with it IMO

(watch FLA sweep them now)
