Stanley Cup playoff time again:fight:

As requested by Mr. Pcad,It's a hockey playoff thread this week. Our Bluejackets are out as usual.
Will anybody be able to stop the Evil "Ove" and the Capitals?

I'm hoping the Redwings are one and done for starters.We've had enough of them to last us awhile.

Evidently it is some kind of sport that is played on ice of all things.
It was described to me as Ice Capades on meth.

We had the farm team for the Avs a few years back (Hershey Bears). So a few of the names are familiar

They put in walls to remind them to stay left.

Ya,that was pretty cheap.
"Miller Time" will still pull the series together for the Sabres.You've got to admire the tenacity of this guy for his short NHL career.

You know Barry Melrose's saying about playoff time?
"The team who can play through the most injuries will win."

I will do my best to cheer for, in this order

the canadian teams
when/if they get wiped out
the most canadian american team (ironically, I betcha most american teams have more canadians the canadian teams)
and if all else fails...
the most violent team

if two "euro" type teams make it, I will cheer for the refs to screw the pooch...

I guess I see your biased view.
Sort of like if baseball,football,basketball teams gradually moved north.

God I wish football would come up here. I am stuck watching Seattle...a giant meh moment. And west coast coverage of teams I like is non existent. But ya a canadian team would be ironic since it would be 99% to 100% americans.

I hope the residents of Columbus hide and heel you to a barn door and put a redwing tattoo on your forehead.

Phoenix now lead the series against Detroit 2-1(looks like I'll get my first wish).
Classless fans at Joe Lewis today at the end as the hometown lumps get spanked.
