Quote from: HVC on May 12, 2022, 03:37:10 AMI'm surprised there aren't any Ukrainian flags at the Florida home games.  You'd think it'd be. A great way to taunt the caps.

They have their own Russians.

Though a tractor pulling Ovechkin around would sum up the last two games.

Barkov is Finnish.

Looking at their roster the Panthers only have one Russian player - Maxim Mamin.  Mamin has only played in 1 game so far in the playoffs, with total icetime of 9:35, so I don't think they're too worried about offending him.

Barkov's father is Russian!

Anyway the Caps were as successful at holding their lead as Ovechkin's buddy Putin was at taking Kharkiv.

Yeah I had a bad feeling about that series. I will be shocked if the Lightning don't win game 7, but here's hoping.

What?  They like playing hockey and want that moment to last, that's all. ;)

they had excellent opportunities to score in OT while the Lightning was shooting for the sake of shooting.  I'm not sure they can rely on such luck all along the series, should they beat TO in game 7.

So NHL playoffs...  Edmonton Oilers are now down 3 games to 2 against the LA Kings, in a series the Oilers were expected to dominate.

I have to admit I'm conflicted.  On the one hand I live in Edmonton, tons of people I know love the Oilers, and they would be very happy if they win this series.

On the other hand - I hate the Oilers.  Always have, ever since I was a kid.

:hmm:

Oilers take it to game 7.  :mellow:

Another OT playoff game, another loss. Such as it always is.

Hard to believe just a few nights ago they almost went up 3-1 on the Panthers. Sigh.

Good god, they fail again.

 :lol:

John Tavares was such a bad signing. Not because he's bad but because he can never be good enough for the havoc his cap hit does to the Leafs cap. He takes the place of 4 other potential goal scorer while barely scoring above replacement level.

Bad 1st round for my Languish friends.

Sorry Valmy :console: , Sorry HVC.  :console:


Pittsburgh is tied 3-3 with Rangers.  But I don't care for them as much as I used to.  Don't care that much about playoff hockey anymore, I don't really know why.  Ah, well.  Gives more time for other things.
