Playoffs again
« on: May 11, 2017, 02:53:18 AM »
If you did not know, the Penguins won game 7 tonight and are moving onto the Eastern Conference Final. The 70s stache will be around for at least 4 more games, and at least 10 more days, getting bigger by the day. Here's hoping it lasts for 8 more wins just like last year!

My team was out of it before the season even started... (To call what Carolina is doing "rebuilding" is being generous... but hey, they FINALLY figured out they need a damn goalie.. only took 10 years). 

I'm kinda pulling for Nashville since I don't have a dog in the hunt and they are the underdog/Cinderella story.  They looked DAMN impressive against Chicago and then the St Louis series was a barnburner. 

Last nights game was impressive.  Fleury stood on his head (as he's wont to do).  It only gets crazier from here on out.  I don't know what to expect from the Sens.. I only watched one of their early round games.

I love playoff hockey.  I don't care who the teams are.

I agree wholeheartedly about playoffs. Most important thing to remember about playoff Hockey and hockey fans is this: We watch the games, not the commercials (NFL) we would die to miss a game/sell our seats(MLB last year both in Cleveland and in Chicago) and this trophy is too important to award to a team that has not been through at least 16 games to win it (NBA has this right as well). Don't mind me, just my usual NHL playoff rambling to show why hockey is the best sport in the World!

I'm not a Caps fine, despite them being the most local team. (I'll never root for any DC team)

That being said, I wish they'd just win so their fans will finally calm down. It's baseball season, but every time the Caps make the playoffs you'd never know it...
Corn is a fine adjunct in beer.

And don't buy stale beer.

The only bad thing is that both conference finals are already determined. That means no playoff Hockey tonight! Maybe I'll watch NBA playoffs... Nope, Cavs are already through to the finals after a second sweep. Yawn...

It seems most likely that the Caps can do well in the playoffs the next time the Penguins don't make the playoffs or get eliminated early. 9-1 all time for Pens over Caps in Playoffs. And also, the last 2 times the Pens beat the Caps in the playoffs, the Pens win the Stanley Cup both times. Bring it on Ottawa

Nice stache!  It makes you look just like Listermann!   ;)

That said, I have to root for Ottawa, as this is a Canadian game, and I always root for the canucks that are in (mostly Calgary and Edmonton), unless of course my favorite team the Flyers are in (I am not holding my breath).

Go Canada! Universal health care AND heavy oil & gas, and mining development.  Both a liberal's and conservative's nightmare.  I love that country.

I shop at Dan's place if I haven't mentioned that before. Been there 3 times in the last 2 weeks, I guess because I'm a poor planner sometimes

Yes, the word "Bloatarian" underneath your name is a dead giveaway that you are a Listermann customer.  :)

gotcha, forgot about that and the club's, along with Dan's, history and reputation. Also, I was a customer for almost 2 years before I became a Bloat

I'm glad Nashville won and advanced last night.  I was secretly hoping for a game 7 since I wasn't home to watch the game last night, but better to finish it off in 6 and not take any chances.

It's gonna be a hell of a final, whoever makes it. This has been a good playoff.

I liked Anaheim but do like Nashville getting to the final for the first time. Hoping that will satisfy them
