Playoff hockey tickets work the same way, by the way. They even put up prospective tickets for dates before the series dates are announced. For example, you could buy a ticket hoping that game one is on Tuesday, and if it is you're good to go, but if it isn't then you get your money back.

It happens, believe it or not. Not often, and not as spectacular as up north, but they've been seen as far south as Miami.

Honestly, about half of these are perfectly applicable to ANY professional job interview. The half that aren't seem pretty reasonable job-specific encouragements for successful interviewing.

Minnesota got screwed big time on what would have been the tying goal. That was in when the puck rolled on edge (the beauty of a DVR and slow motion replay). Inexcusable for the NHL to miss that.

It's hard to believe that the Caps have only won FIVE playoff series during Ovechkin's entire career. That just doesn't seem possible.

You have literally no idea what you're talking about. Living here, I can assure you that I hate this team with the heat of a thousand suns, but you're just flat out wrong. Even in their terrible stretch before their most recent run since Vinik bought the team and hired Yzerman their attendance was fine. Do games get a lot of out of town fans? Yep, sure that can be the case, but it's because those fans will pay handsomely for those tickets. It's easy to make fun of, but I don't blame them.

Seriously, take the "hockey doesn't work in the south" drivel and get a clue. Tampa Bay is one of the highest drawing teams in the NHL. This is a fantastic hockey market.

|5 weeks 3 days ago||Having played this position||
Having played this position at a decently high level, this is spot on. Shots that are long, or slow, or worse, long and slow, are the absolute worst. Goaltending in hockey is completely a muscle memory/reaction position (the fundamentals and positioning are so that you're in the right place and body position so that your reactions are correct and you're in the right spot for them). Whenever you actually have to think about a shot that's when it's most likely to go wrong. That said, I don't think the average person would have made this save either. The thing not mentioned anywhere (including the coverage during the game) is that this would have been icing, but for the tip at center. It's certainly no excuse, because he should have been paying better attention, but I'm willing to bet that's where he lost his focus, rather than as it approached the net. All of that said, it's a complete non-issue if he had just done the one thing they drill into your head since you first start playing the position: keep your stick on the ice!
