Wouldn't the white out work better if the team they are backing was also wearing white??

Back before the NHL fucked it up, the home team always wore white.  The tradition came from that.

Ah I didn't know that.  I always wondered why the NHL was backwards that way.  Although I guess the NFL wears colors at home.

Go Caps! My favorite image from The Washington Post Gallery:  icon_smile
http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/stanley-cup-playoffs-2012/2012/04/21/gIQA15neYT_gallery.html#photo=20
[NOTE: Caption's wrong though; Bruins tied it after that Knuble goal and Brouwer got the winner later]
I enjoyed that the Boston crowd was "hooting" (I can remember DC fans doing that to former Caps D Larry Murphy every time he touched the puck due to his various playoff blunders while a Cap) D John Carlson just before he set up the winning goal.

*Bruins rallied from 3-2 in the Cup finals last year, so no right-thinking Caps fan thinks the series is over yet. I like their stubborn resiliency even if all season it seems there's no lead they can't blow.  icon_razz

Feel a little bad for the Sharks.  Niemi gives up one bad rebound the entire game and the Blues capitalized on it.  The Sharks had shut down the Blues forwards for most of the game and were actually winning both the offensive and defensive zone faceoffs which was preventing the Blues from doing anything for most of the 2nd period and the first 10 minutes of the 3rd period.  Sharks were the better team for most of Game 5, yet still lost - mostly thanks to Elliott not giving up rebounds on quality scoring chances and secondly to Alex Pietrangelo who kept blocking passes which would likely have been easy one-timer goals if the passes had gotten past him.

Yeah they changed it around the time they introduced the third jersey in order to sell more jerseys.  I personally hate it.

They did that repeatedly throughout the game - trying to force pucks along the boards at the blueline and just giving them away.  Washington had 14 giveaways and most of those were right at their own blueline.  Interestingly, when the Caps worked on moving the puck up through the middle, where most teams won't go, they had success breaking out and getting into the Boston zone.  They just kept trying to break out along the boards, instead, and kept on turning it over.

It's given by the team to a player after every win in the playoffs. Last year it was some old beat up jacket bought on EBay, this time it's ridiculous chain link necklace. It's a team unity thing I think.

Also, back to back game days followed by a two day layoff before a Game 7. Eff you NBC.

Verizon Center was as loud today as I've ever heard it - I didn't bring back my voice, that's for sure.

Alas, this one has to go to Game 7. Normally I'd be downbeat, but with all the other crazy stuff happening, the Caps still have to have a shot...

Loved the play of Schneid, rest of the Canucks other than Higgins were quite pathetic. Good game by the Kings to hang in against Schneid who was on fire again. Lol about D Sedin not being able to put one in on a clear break away - guess I'll just never be a fan of him and his bro.  Roll Eyes

Yeah.  Also there's going to be some serious banging that series.  It will probably be unwatchable for just about anyone who's not a fan of either team.

The good news is you can apparently decapitate Blues players and not get penalized for it, so that might be a viable strategy.

From CNNSI.com about tonight's game:

Quote
But that third period erased a lot of belief, churned up frustration normally reserved for Luongo and prompted a video-board reminder that "this is our home, please celebrate responsibly" -- which leaves you wondering if people in the building were reading it simply as code for, "now that the game is tied 1-1, when we lose, please don't riot again."

If my recollection is correct, in the old days the home team always wore the dark colored jerseys. I don't know when it changed to whites but I think it makes sense. The dark jerseys have a lot more personality than the white ones.

Oh well.  Really wish Raymond had tucked that wraparound in, but that's karma when you play like shit the rest of the series.

Good luck to the Kings in 2nd round... go Sens!

Heh, I think this conversation pops up every year.  The dark jerseys do have more personality, which is why I liked it better the old way.  Attending a Kings game now is going to see a mostly black team playing a mostly white team, when I used to see a whole host of colors come through.  Instead of seeing the Detroit and Chicago reds, or Edmonton and St Louis blues, I get black team and white team. Monotonous.

In the NFL, I think the home team gets their choice of jersey.  It explains why you normally see the Cowboys in their whites.

My thoughts today on the Blues/Kings series:  Whoever wins will lose the next round... it's going to be that brutal and could well go seven games (and multiple OTs).  Attrition is going to destroy both teams.

Also since both teams basically play the same defensive shell/counterattack, the series is going to come down to special teams execution.  LA might have a slight early advantage here given that the Blues got to play a terrible, terrible PK team in San Jose and could be rusty in facing an actual good PK for the first game or so against LA.  That's grasping at straws though... realistically both teams are pretty even.

Also due to the play styles, if there are no penalties called these games will be as boring as a 90s Devils series.
