Thought I'd make a place for any random musings on the rest of the NHL campaign.

So far every team I hate is losing their series.

That is all.

I'm surprised that the Sharks are up 2-0 on the Wings, guess they needed to not be in 1st place.  And the Lightning take a 2-0 lead back to their place?  Dayum.

Obviously it's too early in that series to even think this but how awesome would another capitals chokejob be? This is really the year they are set up to make the finals being that Pittsburgh is already out, Philly has goaltending issues, and neither Tampa or Boston are that great of teams. I'd love to see those arrogant dufusses go golfing early again this year.

Yeah, it's a WC year.  Any team but Nashville would make mincemeat of Philly, Boston or TB.

Hopefully Coach Porky Pig has done enough to keep his goofy ass around for another year though.

Tim Thomas stole that one. Let's see if Boston can go up 3-0 then choke it away again.

Yeah, Tampa really took it to them, especially in the third. Conference finals minus the Craps and Flyers would sure take the sting off our early exit.

More hilarity regarding the Caps, going back to 1998:

2011 -- defeated Rangers in Eastern Conf Quarterfinals, Swept like the bitches they are 4-0 by Tampa in Easten Conf semifinals

2010 -- lost to Canadiens in Eastern Conf Quaterfinals.

2009 -- defeated NY Rangers, 4-3, Eastern Conf. quarterfinals
        lost to Pittsburgh, 4-3, Eastern Conf. semifinals

2008 -- lost to Philadelphia, 4-3, Eastern Conf. quarterfinals

2003 -- lost to Tampa Bay, 4-2, Eastern Conf. quarterfinals

2001 -- lost to Pittsburgh, 4-2, Eastern Conf. quarterfinals

2000 -- lost to Pittsburgh, 4-1, Eastern Conf. quarterfinals

1998 -- defeated Boston, 4-2, Eastern Conf. quarterfinals
        defeated Ottawa, 4-1, Eastern Conf. semifinals
        defeated Buffalo, 4-2, Eastern Conf. finals
        lost to Detroit, 4-0, Stanley Cup Finals


In summary, since their 1998 trip to the finals, the Crapitals have made it out of the first round twice. Both times as a top seed beating the 8th seed Rangers. For a team often annointed as the second coming, they sure do lose in the first round alot. Couldn't happen to a bigger bunch of assholes.

Hahah, yeah. Great night for hockey. Caps get broomed and Philly and Detroit are down 3-0. The only bad thing is that this has GOT to be the nail in Porky's coffin. It has to right?

It's like having a QB that will always throw at least 2 picks every game. You just hope that it doesn't come at the worst possible time.
I lurk on a Flyers board and posters were actually predicting when Boucher would give up the backbreaker.

How fucking pathetic is this effort? It's beyond terrible. Honestly, I would expect better form from a 10 year old, assuming he had been playing for a couple of years.

Sharks avoid the chokejob. it's really sad when you expect a team that was up 3-0 to collapse.

That said, the NHL really wants a Canadien team in the finals. Look for many tissue-soft calls to go against the Sharks in the series.

Also, I expect the Tampa-Boston outtrap-fest to be coma inducing.

It's like watching Marc Andre Fluery. Some games he's a brick wall and other games 3 of the 4 goals he gives up would have been stopped by a pee-wee goaltender.

I still have no idea how they won the gold with him in net.

Would have liked to see Vancouver win the Cup, but they really don't deserve it. This series could easily be 5-2 or 6-1 Boston. Usually, the team with the better goalie wins, but this has been an odd series.

I think Luongo finally shits the bed at home and cements his place in history. Maybe he can lose the Cup by lettingin an even softer goal than the one that ended last season. Ok, that's probably not possible.

At least the Heat lost.

Fuct up series for sure with the goal differential and the home team dominating and all. I still think the Canucks take it and if they do I can't recall a time when a team was outscored so badly and still won a series.

Crosby in particular and the Pens in general have had Miller's number historically. 

It was lucky; the kind of lucky that seems to evade players of a lesser ilk.

I was thinking about this last night, and the only parallel I can think of is the '60 World Series, where the Yankees won their 3 games by a huge aggregate, and the Pirates won their 4 by a sum total of about 6 runs.  Difference is, Vancouver should be playing the part of the Yankees.

Eight goals in 7 games for the Canucks?  No wonder they're burning down the city.  Good for Tim Thomas though, two shutouts in 7 games.
