Guaranteed home ice advantage if they go all the way would be a nice thing to have, that's all. I also can't stand NY teams
You don't need home ice to win (e.g. Bruins finals 2011) and home ice isn't necessarily a big advantage (e.g. Bruins first round 2012!). They lost 3 at home.

yet another rules question from me-

can you still use your timeouts in OT, or are they only good in regulation? I have seen several times where I would think a coach may want to use one but they either don't or can't.

ray whitney can bite me.....

Pretty sure there are no timeouts and no commercials in OT (which must kill the networks, god forbid they lose a penny in ad revenue)

There are no TV timeouts, but if a team still has its timeout, it can use it.

Ha, I have one of those retro ones that were $40 but want a real one now, would've been a waste to get it if they lost against Ottawa the other night though.

Also, I'd rather avoid wearing a $100 jersey at hockey lessons!

Kreider had a great 2 minutes just now

Kreider is having a heck of a couple of weeks. Nothing like making your debut in the playoffs and having an impact.

You can wear the jersey even when your team loses, you know.

Yeah, I know. Went to Dicks and Modells today thinking I might, but $160 is way too much for me. Ended up getting a few bits instead, that would be of more use. I think I can live with just the retro jersey for now...

The stupid site isn't allowing me to sign in anymore. I tried to make my second round picks, but it won't recognize the email address that I'm sure I used, or any of the other email addresses I tried retrieving my password with.


It's nice living in a city with playoff hockey for a change, although because it's LA it's rare to see any signs of it.

I'm hoping to go to one of the games against the Blues this round, but we'll see if it'll happen.

It's that way in St. Louis too. We're a baseball town first and foremost, so I sort of expect the Blues playoff run to take a backseat to the Cardinals even though we're not even a month into the baseball season. David Freese or Yadier Molina can't even take a **** without the local media covering it, but in the Sports segment of the local news, they're covering the freakin' Rams and the NFL draft ahead of the Blues. The Rams aren't even playing right now, and when they do start playing, they'll suck more than a Colombian prostitute hired by the Secret Service.

The Blues have a small (compared to the Cardinals and Rams) but loyal fanbase. I suppose that's better than having bandwagon fans who only care when the team is doing good and leave the arena empty when they're playing poorly.

Impressive display by Phoenix in Game 2. Solidly outshot and outplayed the Predators. I think they just barely won the face-off battle again, but killed it in the 3rd period when it counted most (see: 5th goal).

Also, probably the only perfect rant I've seen a U.S. commentator say in the NHL playoffs (ignoring JR's idiotic bumbling at the end): Keith Jones rips Alex Radulov.

Just incredible. Loving every day of the Western Conference playoffs.

Welp, LA sure did dominate early tonight. At least STL found their manhood, eventually. Only took them 1.5ish games. I don't think it'll be Pitt-Philly round 2, but it's looking by far the most physical and perhaps interesting series if STL doesn't roll over.

Oh yeah:

HBO Confirms 24/7 with Leafs, Wings

Because, y'know, the Leafs need MORE distractions.

Should we assume CBC/other will pick it up in Canada?

I applaud the predators. Even though they are about to bust my pool (i had them in 6), they had the courage to take action on two guys who's heads are clearly not on hockey.

Now if they were out drinking AFTER the game, then I would understand, but this just shows they were hung over and not ready to play.

I said to a friend of mine-I hope its the Kings and Coyotes in the conference finals for three reasons

1. Shame the entire Sharks organization
2.Shame the entire Sharks organization
3. Make NBC do something drastic and controversial- even borderline criminal.

Learn about a team in the Western Conference that is not Chicago, Detroit or Vancouver.
THE HORROR !!!
THE HORROR !!!
THE HORROR !!!
THE HORROR !!!
THE HORROR !!!

I was surprised to see they suspended them during the playoffs. Nice to see some integrity in sports these days....

didnt know that...

I am not surprised they did. It would look REALLY bad if they did not-and frankly, with all the crap that happens in the other leagues (DUIs,battery, assault, felonies, ect) we must hold our players above everyone.

That said-

makes we wonder what happens between games in the KHL............

I didn't read the article you linked, but I read another article regarding 2013 24/7 and HBO's comment was something like 'We'll be sure to have a partner in Canada', which sounded like not going to be on HBO. Though I'm not sure it would be CBC based on HBO being a 'premium' channel in the US. Not sure about a Canadian counterpart. TSN or something? I'll have to look up the article I read when I have more time.

Yep, sure was incredible to see. Losing Radulov isn't a big deal (see: last post with video of Keith Jones mocking his awfulness this series), but Kostitsyn at least has been all right this series. Big organization move.

I guess they're looking to have it on a network so that it gets more exposure. More people have CBC, TSN, Sportsnet, etc. than HBO. Interesting.




I'm kind of disappointed that Pierre McGuire didn't get the Canadiens GM job. Not because I think he deserves it, but because it would have been great to have him off the air for a few years.

BTW, I LOVE how they're making fun of McGuire "finishing second" on HockeyCentral at Noon right now.
