Ehh its more than likely that Chicago ties up the series. Crawford is playing solid and they're pretty tough to beat at home. The Blues also love to lose to i'm going with Chicago 3-1 tonight
NHL Playoffs Open Thread
Fuck Chicago and Pittsburgh
This should be required in the original post anytime a hockey thread is started
Massey is actually predicting some close ones tonight, if anyone is interested. The favorites and estimated probabilities are:
- Pittsburgh (51%), predicted 3-2 score
- Dallas (56%), predicted 3-2 score
- Chicago (63%) predicted 3-2 score
I think the predicted score is the median of several simulations, but I don't know everything about the method used.
I wish the Joe was this rocking.
Hate Pitt more in hockey. Football isn't important here. Plus JMFJ is on Columbus.
I wonder how many folks on this board realize that JMFJ and Sid the Kid are BFF's? They not only played hockey together at St Mary's Shattuck, but they were on the varsity baseball team and even sparked a bench clearing brawl. I will try to find a link
Off topic, but Pineda on the Yankees is a dumb ass. Just got ejected for using pine tar after getting caught for using it a couple weeks ago.
This Columbus-Pitt game is some damn fine hockey being played. Great pace, hitting hard, lots of action.
Yep, Damn good action. Fun to watch even though Pittsburgh is about to give up yet another 3-1 lead.
He's playing great! Think how good L.A. would be if they hadn't traded him.
Not good enough for Dean Lombardi.
How can a GM go from Cup champs to 1st round elimination in less than 2 yrs?
As I posted yesterday, if Deano is such an astute judge of coaching why do other NHL GM's send their kids to play for Red? (I'm thinking of Griffin Luce's family)
Wings got swept out of the 1st rd after winning the cup in 2002. Whats your point?
CBJ is absolutely dominating the 2nd period. I'd like to see them win this thing.
Stepping it up. Arena is going crazy. Going to be a great third period
Columbus makin a comeback. Both of these teams suck at keepin leads
Anyone catch that?
'Upper body injury'
I assume that puck to the face? He played game 2 with a face mask didn't he?
Ya he played with a mask of some form -- just something to protect the jaw. I know he got into a scrum with Rousell (sp?) and he wasn't shy about giving shots to his face and Getzlaf was pissed how his jaw was targeted after the past two games. I would guess so.
He has no room to talk. He does the exact same stuff to other players.
And got punched under the visor by some moron.
Odd that he could play the last game with the facial injury but not tonight.
Can anyone explain why Dallas wears those disgusting jerseys after their old dark green and gold ones looked great? They remind me of the disgusting shade of green that msu used to wear:
Dark green always better. The only Star who looks good is Jamie Benn. That kid is a stud
I would say Seguin is pretty attractive too.
I have a hard time being positive about Seguin. That and the fact that he went to high school in Plymouth with my buddy's daughter and was apparently a total dick head.
I'm rooting so hard for Columbus to tie this
Fleury. Wow. Just...wow.
Are you kidding me?! What a game!!
What a bone head move by Fleury.
Marc-Andre Fleury, classic mindcase goaltender. He was single-handedly keeping Pit ahead during the 2nd and 3rd periods
ha Fleury. Playoff hockey is the best.
And fucking Alex Avila lines out to first with guys on 2nd and 3rd in the 9th. Wonderful.
Can't fault him for that, he put a good swing on the ball, in fact everyone in that inning had a good AB.
WOOOOOOOOOOOOO BLUE JACKETSSSSSSSS
CBJ wins it! Wow
Love to see the replay. But that one did not look good for Fleury.
Totally fucked up.
It was a knuckler that dipped down. Not an easy save, but it is a save that is expected to be made in the playoffs. Really, it's classic Fleury.
What the fuck was Fleury thinking.
Way to go Pittsburgh. I don't understand you sons'a bitches.
Foligno with the GW. Good stuff. Series tied!
players who wear ear guards: kane, crosby
This Dallas game is crazy.
