Open Post- Day 2, Stanley Cup Playoffs

Tonight should be another great night to settle in and watch some playoff hockey.

The Blues will be without  T.J. Oshie and Patrik Berglund, the Flyers are starting Ray Emery and their #1 goaltender Steve Mason will join the Flyers in NYC tomorrow but is still questionable for game 2.

Also, there was some question of the starting goaltender for San Jose and this morning the Sharks announced Antti Niemi as their starter.

Enjoy and feel free to comment on the games...

Strong period for the Cawks, lots of pressure but nothing to show for it on the scoreboard

3-2 Cawks

I’m here and I see a 3-nil Sharks lead with 9:15 to go in the second.

4-nil Sharks with 7:03 left in the second.  It’s an annihilation.

I got both the Sharks/Kings game and the Cawks/B’lose game on my PC screen.

Well, I’ve seen the Caps choke a 5-goal lead so anything can happen, right?

Anyone following the Dives/Mild game?  That’s also going to OT.

And it’s the B’lose in the 3OT to win it, 4-3.  Suck it, Cawks.

Got home and turned the tv on and the B’Lose score literally less than 30 seconds later.

Nice assist by Cooke for Minny taking both himself and one of his defensemen out of the play knocking down an Avs player.  On a side note, I assume given the ridiculous amount of superlatives thrown around by the announcers at the end they were the Avs normal crew.  I guess when you haven’t seen the playoffs in a while not to mention won a game in the playoffs it’s easy to get giddy.

No kidding.  I knew the announcers were gonna stroke themselves ferociously over the win so I just closed that window as soon as I verified that the refs goal signal was given.

What’s going to be even worse, with Roy pulling the goalie with almost 3 minutes left in the game down 1 and having it pay off with a goal sending it in to OT there’s going to be a ludicrous amount of stories about what a genius he is.

Wow.  Doughty had a world class effort.  He didn’t score, but he sure as hell was angry when the refs didn’t blow the whistle for the obvious holding behind Niemi’s net.  Hey, Carrie, I guess the rules really don’t change in the playoff, huh?  Fuch you, Helmet Hair.  I hope the Wings are geared for the garbage officiating.

Holy Thursday in the SYF household.  We’ve volunteered for a late night Good Friday Vigil at a nearby Church.

See y’all tomorrow.

Go Wings.
