NFT: NHL Playoff Thread

pjcas18 : 8/1/2020 9:31 pm
day 1 halfway done. Figured I''d start a thread for not just the Rangers games.

Rangers and Canes were rusty on specials (though CAR looked much better), 1 for 14 combined on the PP. Good intensity though, hard hitting game. I thought Hank was great.

I didn't see any of NYI vs FLA, but the score is about what I'd expect from a Trotz team.

PIT came out like a house on fire, Price stood tall and MTL's two youngsters, Kotkaniemi and Suzuki have the Habs with a 2 - 0 lead. momentum is starting to shift to MTL, but PIT can score quickly. MTL defense is a massive Achilles heel.

I will be shocked if it's not Pitt or the rangers
My bold predictions:  
Anakim : 8/9/2020 10:45 pm : link
East:


Bruins over Hurricanes

Capitals over Islanders

Blue Jackets over Lightning (I think not having Hedman and Stamkos will really hurt)

AND the ultimate upset...Canadiens over Flyers in an absolute shocker



West:


Flames over Stars

Huge upset: Blackhawks over Golden Knights

Blues over Canucks

And one more final upset: Coyotes over Avalanche




Yep, I'm going with both 12 seeds upsetting the #1 seeds

Hey, maybe the Senators trade 3 + 5 for the right to pick Lafreniere...:)


Or the Rangers are their usual "smartest people in the room" selves and take Byfield over Laf.

If the Rangers don't win the Lottery, at least let the Wild, Predators or Jets win. Florida has picked top-5 numerous times. Oilers have picked top-3 many times. Fuck the Maple Leafs and a huge fuck you to the Penguins.

This franchise is fucked
I read that if EDM  
pjcas18 : 8/9/2020 10:51 pm : link
wins there is a good chance they trade it. And OTT was mentioned as a trade partner.

If EDM could get 3 and 5 and have OTT take back James Neal it could be a good trade for both teams (better for EDM IMO).

OTT can stay at 3 and 5 and get Stutzle or Byfield at 3 and Drysdale or Perfetti at 5. Maybe they view that combo as better than Lafreniere - not to mention James Neals cap damage.
At least your not the Leafs

dpinzow : 8/11/2020 8:58 pm : link
Could end up being longest game in NHL history if nobody wins it soon. They already had to postpone Boston-Carolina for tomorrow
I was at the Penguins  
pjcas18 : 8/11/2020 9:02 pm : link
Capitals 4 OT playoff game in 1996

I lived in DC at the time and one of my buddies was one of the few die hard Caps fans and wanted to go.

It went on so long I was hung over already by the time it ended because they stopped selling beer like 3 hours before the end

Lemieux ejected out early after beating the snot out of Todd Krygier.

Peter Nedved won it. A lot of talent on that ice that game - mostly on the Pens.

Lemieux, Jagr, Francis, Nedved, Zubov, Bondra, Gonchar, Hunter, Juneau.

this is brutal for the players, but so awesome.

2020 playoffs in 2020 fashion start with an instant classic.
God that game sucked  
Greg from LI : 8/11/2020 9:04 pm : link
I stayed up late to watch it in the hopes of seeing the Penguins go down and not only did they win but Nedved, who I despised, won it.
Hah, surprised they didn't called a phantom penalty there  
Anakim : 8/11/2020 9:19 pm : link
So Atkinson would get a penalty shot
Wow. Epic game. Gotta feel for CBJ

The commentary for the 5OT game was dog shit. They were whining about the games being too long, saying there should be shootouts and explaining to us how the players might be tired.

Excellent observations.
