How’s that going? I don’t tweet the Twitter, so I can’t follow it. Have we thoroughly annoyed this guy yet with Hot Takes?

Edit: Go Avs!

So true - hell I am not overly sure how I will explain the concept of icing being waved off. :lol

Top 20 maybe to be generous but he doesn't hold a candle to guys like Ovecheckin, Crosby, McDavid, Tarasenko, Kane, Laine, Malkin, Matthews, MacKinnon, Kessel, etc, etc IMO. Those guys are game changers who can carry a team on their backs whereas Marchand is a damn good player but I never saw him as more than a supporting cast type guy since Bergeron has done the heavy lifting through Marchand's career.

You just need to live with a guy from Sarnia for a while. :lol

Meh, I grew up 45 minutes from the Hartford Civic Center so the Whalers were always on local TV and I got to attend a lot of games until they skipped town in 1997! Guys like Ron Francis, Kevin Dineen, Brendan Shanahan, Mike Liut, Chris Pronger, Ulf Sameulson and some others were virtual celebrities to those of us rooting for the Whale!

I never get why Subban is in the conversation for the Norris, he is certainly talented offensively with that shot he has but when it comes to actually playing D he is often caught out of position - basically I see him as a 3 or 4 D man on most teams.

It would be nice to see the Avs get a win in Nashville and go back to CO down 3-2. I will be cheering them on!

Philly fans - any updates on Couturier's status for tonight? I know he skated but is still listed as a game time decision. Also see that Hornqvist will be out again tonight.

The way the NHL updates fans on injuries is infuriating, if they do not have say a broken fibula or concussion we are often just told they have an upper or lower body injury with absolutely no details on how bad it is.

Burakovsky undergoing surgery and will miss at least the rest of this round. I know he is not a star but that is a tough break for the Caps. He is young though so hopefully he will recover quicker and be ready if the Caps advance.

I'm betting Couturier plays since you know, it's the last game of the season.

Still a top 6 forward

Oshie playing through something pretty bad himself

So right now the Caps 2nd line is all fucked. AB65 is out - Backstrom is lost - Oshie is half a person

Might be hard to play if hes got a torn ligament or something. I wouldnt bank on it.

Yeah, he is in there but looks a little sluggish unlike his team who came out flying in the first.

Yeah, some tough breaks for the Caps at a really lousy time of year.

Minnesota is cooked. Looks like the Jets will be facing Nashville (barring a breakdown by the Preds) while Vegas faces San Jose in round 2.

Think the Pens will be coming hard in the second but if Malkin is still out of the lineup that will make Philly's task easier.

I know Vegas is probably the easy pick to come out of the west but I think Winnipeg is the better team.

I donít think Vegas gets past the Sharks. The Sharks know how to put the puck in the net, which was the Kings issue (all season).

First series victory in Thrashers/Jets 2.0 franchise history (and first for the city in 31 years) coming barring a crazy collapse. Good for them.

I was 100% convinced that Vegas was going to lose in the first round. lol.

Yeah, I figured with Quick backstopping them LA would win the series in 5 or 6 games. LA just could not find the back of the net at all.

A Jets/Lightening final would be a lot of fun to watch because they play such different game styles.

can't wait for this team to lose in epic fashion.

Bad tripping call on Flyers there. But I can see how the ref thought that from the angle he was at.

~Crashintome89~ 04-20-2018 09:19 PM

Re: The NHL Thread (Avs are in the playoffs! 3elieve!)
 
completely shocked that the pens have had 5 powerplays compared to the Flyers one.

So bitter that your vaunted defense and “quarterback” got torched by the champs two weeks before they took the title on your field.

An actual quality game between these two clubs! Who’d have thunk?!

That was a goal normally scored on the Flyers. COOTS!

Coots and Neuvy with some amazing heroics late. Prolonging the inevitable I guess.

Now we get to see if this team can actually show up in front of a home crowd.
