    Of course they schedule the game at an inconvenient time for me :rofl:

    I managed to listen to most of the game and watched parts later on... great game! I'm honestly surprised to see that Dallas is capable of winning a game 7.

    "Kivi-WHO?" :lol:

    Seriously great game, I'm not even mad that Avs are eliminated.

    Vancouver only put up 14 shots all game and were heavily outshot, but to their credit they held the game scoreless until late into the 3rd and did have some quality scoring chances.

    I started watching just as Reaves took that major, Canucks were so bad on the ensuing power play, and they got a power play later in the game as well and were equally as bad. Really sad outing for a team on the brink of elimination. They put up a single shot on the 5min pp :lol:

    Vancouver went way further than they had any right to, to be honest.. showed a lot of heart and determination but the talent and experience mismatch between them and Vegas was huge. Demko got em as far as he could practically singlehandedly but Van didn't show any life or get any dangerous looks until the last minute of the game, 6 on 5, when they had already given up one empty netter..

    I am still choked Colorado is out. They had so many injuries I suppose they should be happy to get to 7 games too. Hutchinson really fell apart in the last one. Dallas is so, so, so lucky

    :rofl: There is comedy in that since our 14 year old dog is having digestive issues right now so I have literally been dealing with the real thing :rofl: (she's actually almost over it now but Friday was not fun)

    But no, no I was not. I think part of it too is I just find the Islanders annoying and mostly boring as the whole trap trap trap defend defend only generate offense off of a turnover on the rush once every 10 minutes excruciating to watch. To the point I might not even watch the Tampa / NY series except for the elimination game.

    On the bright side Vegas / Dallas should be fun and I'm off this week so I can even watch the late games if I want :yesway:

    Ugh that sucks. Glad she's starting to feel better.

    I sent my buddy a text after the game saying I needed Tampa to blow them out of the water because the clutching and grabbing in these playoffs has been bad enough, and to couple that with a Devils hockey team making noise in the ECF or go to the Cup would be the worst thing for the sport. I can't have teams emulating that BS.

    Yep. I am not a Tampa fan, but REALLY do not want the Isles to win and everybody try to emulate that crap. It just makes the game boring as hell IMHO.

    Pens traded Bjugstad for a bag of pucks... errr conditional 7th in 2021. This would be fine except they retained 50% of his salary so they need to find a 3rd line center for under $2 million for the deal to have made any sense at all.

    I'm guessing they'd want to keep McCann but he's gonna want more than that I'd assume.

    It seems like Dallas really shouldn't be winning some of these games, but they keep finding ways to do it, hats off to them. I've lost count of how many open-net-ish chances Vegas has missed this series.

    Yeah plus they've been unhappy with McCann's performance. There was an article with an interesting analysis of the deal and apparently while from a cap standpoint a buyout would have been better, from what the team actually pays out this saved them cash so seems like it was a deal about the business bottom line vs cap / team lineup.

    As for Dallas see my earlier comment about somebody making a deal with the devil :rofl:

    Having only read a little about that series, I get the impression Dallas is doing to Vegas, what Philly did to Montreal.
