I have to feel bad for Nashville after that one. Completely dominated Phoenix in every possible way the last 30+ min and then the Yotes score on a little dribbler.

Boston also has an aging goalie ready for trade. Anyone? Toronto? Boston hasn't totally screwed them in a trade in a few years, I think it's time for another.
45  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 26, 2012, 10:06:56 PM
Aww, nice to see all the Boston love. You guys really do care!
46  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 26, 2012, 04:10:26 AM
Eh, it's like you said, they won it last year, can't feel too bad. I didn't even really watch the game. Sacrilege I know. While it was the closest series ever it was also one of the most boring I've ever watched. Lots of defense, lots of mistakes, bad special teams. Meh. The Bruins wouldn't have gotten past Philly or really anyone else and I don't think Washington will either.

I'll be rooting for the cats because of my man crush on Kevin Dineen, but I will support whoever wins. Don't really care for Philly or the rags or Ottawa.

Phoenix v. Nashville in a battle for the worst second round ratings ever!

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

What the fuck was Seguin doing wearing that big chain link around his neck? (post game interview)

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.

Yeah, I honestly don't think any of the Kings would intentionally hurt him, but like you say with a head injury it doesn't take much.  A seemingly innocent hit could be taken as headhunting.  I also don't think the Kings should have to avoid hitting anyone.

Part of me really wants a win tonight, it's not been fun at all and a little bit of enjoyment would be nice, since I'm staying up really fucking late EST time to watch these game.

Savard came back too early to play in the playoffs, didn't get hit or anything, but was never the same after that. Just playing professional hockey can be detrimental to your health when still recovering from a concussion.
51  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 18, 2012, 03:24:04 AM
I think Torres is done for the playoffs, especially since Shanahan seems to favor star players. That hit was just brutal.
52  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 17, 2012, 02:39:21 AM
Oh Alzner, you just done gone and poked the bear.
53  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 17, 2012, 01:33:13 AM
I'm pretty sure the Bruins' top two lines are playing tonight, but I can't seem to find them.
54  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 16, 2012, 03:53:02 AM
Fish flopping everywhere! This is why players dive: it often works and it's almost never penalized.

Nice hit by Brown on Sedin.

Edit: Also, these CBC announcers are awful.
55  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 16, 2012, 03:40:55 AM
Sure, but I'd much rather watch a soccer game than Arena football, so I will agree with your analogy.

Well after that exciting match the next game on the docket is... Florida/New Jers- zzzzzzzzzzzz

Yeah, that Bruins/Caps matchup is lighting the world on fire.

Devils scored as many goals in 2 minutes as the Bruins scored in 2 games.


They've also let in more goals in one period than the Bruins have in 2 games.

The Penguins can't even let Crosby fight his own altercations.  Dude, if he wants to throw down with Hartnell, then let him.  Adams had to resort to pulling Hartnell's hair.  Really?   icon_lol

Eh, I don't have much of a problem with that. It was a smart play by Adams honestly. I would not want my top player going against Hartnell.

Edit: I also have no idea how they haven't tossed Neal yet, just to keep the game somewhat under control.
59  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 15, 2012, 10:05:12 PM
This game is awesome, too bad it might be the last one in the series.

My only complaint is someone hasn't rearranged Briere's face yet.

This period has been more entertaining than both games of the BOS/WAS series.

I think we'll be seeing Brent Johnson next period.
61  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: 2012 NHL Playoffs (1st Round) on: April 15, 2012, 07:55:56 PM
I'm not rooting for the Pens, but that call on Letang to give Philly a 5-on-3 was atrocious.

Had to share these, of Backstrom getting mugged in the 3rd period after whacking at a rebound (no penalty, though if this happened to you in real life, there'd be an arrest and a lawsuit  icon_razz)

That's because Backstrom was being a little ass coming in way after the whistle blew to take a whack at Thomas.
The Bruins being gentlemen, they never do that kind of crap at all. Give us a break. Roll Eyes

Backstrom came in way late and got taken out. Don't mess with the goalie. You failed to mention Johansson wasn't even touched when he took a whack at Thomas' glove because he did it right at the whistle, which happens all the time.

Actually, the Caps need to be willing to do more of that ass-ness. That's what the pundits always proclaim them unwilling to do in the playoffs.

Seriously? The Bruins absolutely thrive on chippy games. Washington needs to keep doing what they have been if they want to win the series: play sound defense, hope Holtby doesn't implode, and win by 1 or 2 goals. If they try to play the Bruins game (i.e. willing to more of that ass-ness) they will lose. That's what Vancover found out last year.

Bruins/Caps at 0-0 heading to OT. For a playoff game it's been a real snoozer so far.

Wow, that was one the dumbest things I've seen in hockey. What the hell was he doing? I think he's going to sit for that.

Oh man, full herp derp there by Staal. Granted the puck took an unexpected bounce, but he didn't even attempt to put a body on Voracek.

I never thought I'd be watching hockey on CNBC.

So happy to watch some playoff hockey. Best sports time of the year (for me).

As long as Vancouver and Pittsburgh don't make it to the finals, I don't care.

They would probably put Panthers/Devils on at 10:30pm every night if they could.

Pens/Flyers IS going to be a good series, NHL darling or not. I think the league would've preferred Rags/Caps and Bruins/Sens, but they'll have to be content with miking one series.

I don't like the Washington matchup for Boston. The Caps have defense issues and who the hell knows who's playing goalie for them, but they have enough offensive firepower from both forwards and defense to make any lead not safe. The Bruins have had issues with offensive defensemen.
71  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NHL Season 2011-2012 on: April 08, 2012, 06:03:18 AM
Crap, I did not want the Capitals. They're not a very good team but they seem to have Boston's number this year.
72  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: NHL Season 2011-2012 on: April 07, 2012, 12:07:49 AM
It's still a valid point though. The overwhelming majority of Americans don't care about hockey.

I'm sure all hockey-playing countries would love to have the same success in hockey that Canada does just as Canada would love to have the same success in pretty much every other sport ever. Oh, except curling. And figure skating now too it seems.

The Islanders coach put out 5 defenseman yesterday to make a point to his forwards.

I am late to the party, but going from VB.NET to C# is never a bad thing. I went the other way and having to put "dim" before everything makes me want to gouge my eyes out.

I'm forced into the unenviable situation of rooting for the Bruins this evening, hoping they keep the Caps down prior to Fridays Sabres-Penguins game.

Sadly the Bruins couldn't help you. It was pretty hilarious to see Washington blow a 2-0 lead with 3 minutes to go, though.

The Caps are not a good team. I think most playoff teams are rooting for them over Buffalo at this point.

If he's not out for too long and there are no lingering effects, then it could definitely be a good thing. It's not like Vancouver is going to miss the playoffs.

Everyone settle down!

The Bruins won one game over a team that wets themselves when they see them.

Seriously. The Bruins still aren't that good.

I believe that to be true. And I also believe the Leafs are really that bad!  icon_twisted

Don't worry, I don't think the Canucks are that good either.  icon_smile
