That awkward moment you realize Boston will probably win the Cup...
Have some decency, Boston sports are overdue for another championship. I mean, it's been what, ...3 months since we won the Superbowl?
This touch pass and finish
"Come play for Canada they said. We have a great defense they said." - Matt Murray
To be fair, he is used to playing behind Pittsburgh's defense...
That was my point I just wish I thought it was going to get better
LMFAO oh sure NOW Hornqvist gets his goal scoring touch back... 3 goals in 2 games so far playing for Sweden.
A bit offtopic since its junior hockey, but my hometown team (Rouyn-Noranda's Huskies) qualified for the Memorial cup (where the Quebec, Ontario and West junior league's champions compete agains't each other). They have also set a new league record with a 59-8-1 record.
And now, Habs prospec't Nick Suzuki team qualified for the Memorial cup representing the Ontario league. He's also set a league record of 42pts in 24 playoff games.
Haven't followed much of the International hockey tournament, but damn that Kaapo Kakko guy seems to be more than ready for the NHL, the draft will be interesting for sure, experts seems to put him and Hugues as possible top pick.
More on that story for those unfamiliar... click me!
Me with the playoffs at this point
Sharks losing 3 of their top players was the nail in the coffin. Should be an interesting final, hoping to see the Blues win a cup finally.
Yeah the injuries really took a toll for that last game... and I would like to see the Blues win one as well.
Sweden lost to Finland
The quality of players coming from Finland and their international success has been on a serious up-trend for a couple of years now. Less pretty-boy skill than their Swedish counterparts, but better defensively.
Swiss looked like they were going to beat Canada, but gave up the tying goal with 0.4 seconds left in the 3rd and lost in OT.
I've followed very little of the IIHF tournament, but I have been much more interested in the Memorial Cup. Semi-Final is tomorrow night, Finals on Sunday.
As for the Stanley Cup, St-Louis in 3 games
I was off work today so actually watched all the international games that were on NHL Network. As a bonus got to see that tying goal by Canada and OT win
Also, shit deals like this are what scares me: rumored trade between the Pens and Wild, Kessel and Johnson for Zucker and Rask. So lets trade a guy that had 81 points and lead the team in PP goals in a season that was a slump for a guy with 42 points and a bag of pucks. Granted Johnson sucks and this would get rid of him and Zucker is better away from the puck, but this is not a winning trade for the Pens. Fortunately it looks like Phil isn't going to consent to the deal.
Crazy ending for that Canada/Swiss game. That would be an awful trade, Kessel is a top line winger on almost any team in the league. By himself, he would garner more than that. At least some picks on top.
Yeah that trade as described is a complete shit sandwich. Even the crap contract trade part is a loser for Pittsburgh as they come out worse off from a cap standpoint on that part of the deal.
Still shocked that Finland shut out Russia
Looking forward to the games today
I'll spin up a new 2019-2020 thread once the Cup Final is over.
