    I had to make sure I was really living in 2012 after that happened.

    That was really disgusting.

    And I didn't mean that I'd look down on people for liking any particular team. You like who you like. Just know that if you like the Penguins, Devils, Rangers, Capitals, or Bruins that we may never be hockey friends because your team sucks.

    You mean the Martin Brodeur who posted the 11th best GAA and the 15th best save percentage in the first round? Against an offensively decent but not spectacular Panthers team? Marty's a top five goaltender of all time (IMHO) but I'm just not that intimidated by him right now.

    So you're going to compare Brodeur's first round playoff series against Bryz's regular season record against the Devils? That's not really fair, is it?

    After that Pens series, I wouldn't be so confident in Bryzgalov's netminding if I were a Flyers fan... It's not like he had a spectacular first round.

    I guess not, I just didn't have Brodeur's regular season record against the Flyers easily at hand. Looks like he gave up 3 goals twice, 2 goals once, and 1 once, going 1-3 overall. I still like it.

    If the Devils beat the Flyers I will eat my hat. I'll livestream it.

    Ain't no sure things in playoff hockey. The Caps beat the Bruins man.

    The Kings beat the Canucks in five!

    You might be right, but being so confident just means you'll be more shocked when you're wrong. And like I said, out of the six times they met this season, they each won 3.

    That was a great game by the Rangers. It felt like they really controlled the game for all but 10 seconds at the end of the 2nd period.

    Ugh, the second I get home and put on the game the Flyers score in OT.

    Also, what the fuck are the Flyers doing where we take them to OT?

  • KlendyKlendy Goomy GoomyGoomyRegistered User regular
    Go blues?

    I'm conflicted. I want the Kings to lose, but I also want them to win it all, to show that Vancouver was ousted by a quality, do-or-die team.

    They came out sluggish, the Devils played them really well, and Bryz had a sloppy game. It was a good afternoon of hockey.

    What the fuck is going on in this Blues-Kings game? 5 goals for the Kings halfway through the game, since when do the Kings score?

    I think Bryzgalov broke @Peen.

    At this rate the Nashville/Phoenix game is going to end before the NY/Washington

    This game is never going to end.

    Whoever comes out on top of this game is going to win the series. Mark my words.

    Man I hope it's the Rangers.

    What's with the Caps and taking playoff games to a billion overtimes?

    They just showed them in the post-game talking. Dad looked disappointed, mom looked relieved that she could finally go home.

    It was the exact reaction my mom always did whenever I did something wrong in a Little League game.

    Hey Philly, suck it.

    No cakewalk over the Devils for you.

    Great game! Lots of to and fro.

    Was heartbreaking to see Kovy's shot halfway through the third hit the bar. He just opened them up and had the opt half of the net wide open and botched it.

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    I don't think anyone thought it would be a cakewalk exactly, just that the Flyers had a really good chance to win. All credit to the Devils, they're playing great.

    Now if the real Flyers could please show up to the series I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

    Those power plays in overtime... heartbreaking.

    I hope Nashville redeems this weekend of hockey for me since I was pulling for the Blues too.

    i can't even believe that the flyers had two power-plays in overtime and couldn't finish the job. GOD what a frustrating game. good on the devils though, they're playing quite well. i don't even think words could express my disappointment if they actually end up BEATING philly tho. :/

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    I just don't understand what's happened to the offense. I know NJ has a good defense and good goaltender but the Flyers offense up until this point has been prolific. I don't know what's going on with them.

    The Devils have the league's best Penalty Kill this season, statistically speaking

  • BorommakotBorommakot Registered User regular
    Not to completely knock the Flyers offense(top 3 in the league and all that), but they put up great numbers against the Pens defense that everyone agrees on the fact that just didn't show up. It's not a huge surprise they're not winning games 8-5 anymore, it's just a problem now that the other side of the score column matters.

  • PeenPeen Registered User regular
    Yeah I meant the regular season too. It's not often this year that the Flyers have had trouble scoring, usually it's the other way around.
