    I really think this is the key. Also Armia stepping it up - it's almost like he's been a different player against WPG.

    Colorado/Vegas is the same. I suspect we'll see a different Avs team at home with the fans in the stands.

    Freaking NBC... they're joining the Jets / Habs game an hour in to show all of the Bruins / Islanders game. I would MUCH rather see an elimination game in its entirety than a game where the series is tied 2-2.

    This Habs team is absolutely relentless

    I would love to see them go all the way just to see Price get a Cup... that said I love Colorado and Vegas too so it's going to be fun regardless

    Not sure how I feel about Vegas or Colorado as far as preferred opponent, not having seen much of either due to divisional scheduling this season. Based on what I've heard/know, despite questionable play from Colorado of late, I'm more afraid of their speed overwhelming our generally slower defencemen. Vegas are a good matchup in that they are a good balanced team that can play heavy + Fleury. Hmmmm...

    The memes on #GoHabsGo right now are just too much, do yourselves a favor :lol:

    To paraphrase something funny I had read... Montreal has won more playoff series in the past week than Toronton in the last 17-18 years :deadhrse:

    As a fan of both the Habs and the Avs, I would like to see either go, but it's been too long since Habs made a final. Plus, Price deserves to have his name on the Cup.

    And the "perfection" line goes golfing :lol:

    I'm curious to see how the Lightning / Isles series shakes out

    Like I said the Caps made the Bruins look much better than they were. That top line can win games for you, but they still have the problem of really only having one line. Tampa is much more balanced, NY works real hard, but I still don’t know that they can beat a team like TB if they are on their game.

    Truthfully, good for the Islanders. I went out to a game of theirs vs the Florida Panthers at the end of 2019, and the entire atmosphere was just people who supported their team and wanted to watch a good game of hockey; which makes for an infinitely more appealing game than a city of die hard homers who can't accept anything but pure victory.

    Curious to see how they fair against TB, who are also usually our own downfall it feels like. At least this saver us the embarrassment of potentially choking to the Habs in the final round, God knows I'd never hear the end of it.

    Too busy making fun of the Toronto for the next 54 years, but yeah I could see that too. I would have liked a Habs/Bs final, regardless of outcome.

    Glad the homers aren't just here... it's freaking ridiculous. The Pens entire top line was invisible for the entire series against the Isles but the media and fans are all crucifying Malkin and Jarry. Malkin had 5 points in 4 games on a knee that needed surgery ffs :lol:

    At this point I'm just watching to see what the Pens do in the off season and enjoying the occasional game.

    Tuuka has just yet again played small in big games. Chara last year, and now Tuuka and Krecji expected to depart. It will be interesting to see what the Bruins can do. Hopefully they resign Hall and use the substantial money the save from Krecji to find a younger player that shows up.

    tl;dr When does the NFL season start?

    Even as a fan of the guy, Krejci is probably about 3 years past his expiration date for retirement/trade, and I feel like a lot of people have gotten to that point; even as good as it is having a veteran players on your team, at a certain point it starts to become a known detriment, and one that comes with a heavy price tag attached.

    Well Colorado really shit the bed. They looked amazing in game one, had a 2-0 series lead and then forgot how to hockey for 4 games.

    You think its fair to start calling the Avs the Leafs of the West? I have the feeling they will start to be perennial playoff underachievers, reliant on a top-heavy lineup that gets shut down.
