OT: Sunday Night NHL Playoffs

Submitted by BOX House on April 15th, 2018 at 8:34 PM

Don't know how the rest of you are faring, but I'm snowed in and schools are already closed for Monday in the U.P., so I'm watching hockey all night. Live now, it's good to see two old-time NHL towns in Minnesota and Winnipeg (both having once lost their NHL teams) battling in the playoffs again. Love the white outs in Winnipeg. Also live right now is Washington versus Columbus, and it's always funny watching the Capitals blow it in the playoffs. DRW announcer Ken Daniels is calling that game.

Later tonight, it's Vegas and the LA Kings. Did anyone see the medieval show Las Vegas put on for game 1? Pretty flashy and over the top. Vegas is a fun team to watch and I'm pulling for them.

Great time of the sports calendar, despite the lack of regularly scheduled baseball right now.

Wild Winnipeg game is chippy! I'm loving the fight in both teams! Captials had a good start, but that late goal could be a game changer. Wanting to see Caps vs Vegas or Caps vs Nashville at the end.


I hope someone stops Pittsburgh...

Tampa is the 1 seed ahead of Boston. They edged out the Bruins by 1 point in the regular season, but are 1-3 against Boston this year with the only win being a 4-0 game in the last week of the season.

I can say that Tampa Bay fans are figuring out that hockey is a great sport, but they don’t have the atmosphere of Boston...yet. If it’s a Boston and Tampa series it will be must see tv if you’re a hockey fan. Tons of speed and a lot of hatred between the teams.

I was excited about the Boston/Toronto series but the bruins have just dominated. They’re the last team I want to see win the cup especially now that Marchand licks players....what the fuck
