    I started this series rooting for Subban, but now I am firmly rooting for Winnipeg. Game 7 tonight will be the cherry on top of a GREAT series.

    This may be a sign of the apocalypse, but I agree completely. I really hope the Jets light it up tonight. A Jets / Knights Conference Final would be an absolute blast to watch.

    Predators have been surprisingly inconsistent in the playoffs. A Jets/Knights final would be awesome, I think one those two are going to win the Cup.

    Got to say it is pretty funny watching the Caps fans going nuts on NHL's Facebook... you'd think they already won the Cup instead of winning one game. Especially when Boston won the first game against Tampa 6-2 :lol: On the bright side it should hopefully be an interesting series to watch, and I expect Jets / Knights to be entertaining.

    Ridiculous fanboys are ridiculous...

    It’s not like they have had a whole lot to cheer for over the years.

    Looks like the Jets / Knights series is going to be interesting after all...

    Caps played awful in all areas, but PK is especially garbage right now. 5 of the 8 TB goals are PPGs. Eller and Holtby both took dumb avoidable penalties and it cost them.

    So the question of the day: will the home ice disadvantage continue to hold in this Bolts / Caps series? :lol:

    I'm also starting to wonder if Fleury just might get his fourth Cup this year...

    Granted the Jets and Caps are on the verge of elimination, I do hope so :stitch:

    I've been watching the games and I don't know if the Caps or the Bolts can beat Vegas in a seven game series... I do have to admit seeing the Caps lose four in a row after all the hype of finally making it to the conference final (and beating the Pens to do so) would be funny as hell.

    I'm hoping Vegas takes it not just because I like Fleury but because all the salt about an expansion team doing so well is also hilarious. Watching some guys talk online you would think Vegas was handed Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Stamkos, and McDavid at the expansion draft instead of a bunch of guys nobody wanted with the only player considered elite at the time being Fleury. Hell Karlsson's career high was 9 goals and 20 points before this year and the kid had 43 goals.

    He put up the most amount of stopping power that a piece of cardboard could

    Come the end of the season, he was actually playing pretty good. Might even go as far as to say best player during a good stretch.

    Yeah I thought I remembered seeing some crazy numbers from him, had to be to see his numbers come out average for the season as bad as he was with the Pens... I think he had a 7 GAA :lol:
