    Oh, I know!

    Besides, why would you root for my team?! Unless you wanted to put your jinx on them...

    I'll bring you your two previous playoff prize snacks to PAX this year unless I end up moving to Vancouver in September and then I won't have the room.

    Also, if the Canucks outlast the Wings, I'm claiming victory for 2009.

    Well, Wings lose. Wings lose.

    That's honestly the best part about the Rangers blowing it all.

    That the Devil fans are seething that they can't say anything about it.

    Wow.

    New Jersey with the stunning choke job or Carolina with the amazing comeback. Take your pick because I haven't really got to watch any of it yet.

    Carolina with the Divine Favor. I was watching, it was just pure, unadulterated, raw, fucking luck.

    By "luck" I don't mean they were goofing around, it's more of a planetary alignment thing.

    Can't wait to see how they fair against the Bruins. Pretty big maybe, that one.

    Also, Ducks v Wings will be very enjoyable, looking forward to watching that.

    Wings are my back-up team, since I'm originally from the suburbs of Detroit.

    Wings are my back-up team, since I'm originally from the suburbs of Detroit.

    It was more of a really sharp play after a slightly broken play and slight defensive breakdown, then Brodeur letting a puck in that he really should have had.

    Add that to the fact that Lundqvist should have had that GW, and the goalies of those teams really have nobody to blame but themselves for losing those games.

    Well, I mean besides New York being able to generate shit for offense virtually the entire series, let alone in the last period of game 7. But Lundqvist was pulled in what, 3 games in that series? I didn't watch a ton of it, but from what I saw he was getting beat pretty badly high glove side. Makes me wonder if more players won't pick that up and exploit it next year, or if he gives that up consistently and just makes up for it with the rest of his game.

    Anyway, Pens/Caps next, and despite Varlamov putting up good numbers, and being fairly solid from what I saw, I just can't say he's played that great since the Rangers' offense was so anemic at even generating offense in that series. We'll see what happens, although I don't know if the Pens can win with their PP playing as shit poor as it had been most of the year and in most of the Philly series.

    I don't know, that sounds nice. I mean, Brodeur is apparently one of the best goalies in hockey.

    Hell, the "trapezoid" rule is also known as "the Brodeur" rule because of how good his stickplay used to be behind the goaline, before they started that rule.

    I still think Ward is one of the best, though. If only for his pimp helmet.

    man lundqvist was amazing that game, i dont think many goalies in the league could have stopped that shot, it was pretty fucking fast

    Ok, it's probably not fair to say he lost that game for them, because he did play really well the rest of the game from what I watched. But while that shot by Fedorov was a good and fast shot, there was no screen (that I can recall, although Redden didn't exactly do much to help) and he really should have had that in that situation, and most NHL goalies should be able to make that save consistently. It was just an extremely bad time to give that up.

    it was a really good shot, from a really good player

    so from what your saying is that every goal that isnt a screen should be a save?
    thats fucking retarded

    Well, I can tell it's not going to be worth arguing with you about this because you went straight to the insults instead of just discussing the matter.

    I'm just going to say it was a perfectly savable shot, and if you disagree then that's fine, but there's no need for name calling.

    its not like it was a flutter shot from the blue line

    it was a fast wrist shot from the circle top corner
    it is perhaps a saveable shot for very few goalies in the league

    i dont see how you can rationally say that its lundqvists fault they lost because he let that goal in

    It was a "saveable" shot in the same way that every quick, perfectly placed wrist shot by a veteran hall-of-famer is a saveable shot. Yes, he should have had it, but shit happens, he can't save every perfect shot.

    Fuck that goal, though, I wanted the Caps' FIRST goal back. That shit ricocheted so much that it went from heading 3 feet wide of the net to going in almost dead center. Talk about bad goals... just unlucky.

    the problem i have with that federov shot is that the caps were using that same corner/same shot to light henrik up the past two games.

    and yet the d still gave federov space to skate into the zone to set up.

    guess ill root for bruins now, though i think the hurricanes are going to rough them up something fierce.
