Is it me or did both teams play look a little ragged? Philly actually look a little more crisp to me but it didn't keep them from getting toasted.
What, no hockey fans? - Page 36
It appears that they did indeed. I saw at least two Chicago helmets hit the ice and wondered if the head was still in them hahaha!

Well, I'm still watching and rootin' for the Flyers (it's the PA-loyalty thing). Flyers looked better the last 2 games, but the Hawks are tough to beat at home. Still, if you're a Pens fan, you can't want the Blackhawks to win just because of what Hossa did a couple of seasons ago. Flyers need to bring their A game tonite, then win it at home on Wednesday. I say, Flyers in 6.
Unlike SugarCube, my PA loyalty does not extend to the Flyers so the only real rooting interest is against the Flyers. I have no confidence that the Hawks can beat this team. I have not been impressed with the play of either team.(and I wasn't impressed with the Pens play down the stretch and into the playoffs) So maybe I'll watch tonight if there is nothing better to do.
Likewise. Leighton hasn't been exactly brilliant, but his team has played very well in front of him especially in Wachovia. Only because the Cup is on the line, I expect a much tighter game, but I still think we are heading for a game 7. Of course, I haven't been right about much else in this series, so who knows? Maybe Chicago's play in the third period in game 4 will be the indicator and they'll take the cup tonight. Will be really interesting to see just how whistle-happy the ref's are tonight.
I want to feel good about tonight, but the blackhawks really outplayed the flyers in every facet in game 5. We've been playing noticeably better at home so far, let's hope that makes the difference and takes this to a game 7.
Have to finally admit that summer is here and winter is over! Pretty entertaining series though. Great to note in the paper that the finals on NBC pulled in their highest ratings in years. Here in the Twin Cities, the games consistently beat the NBA playoffs. Not sure if that's because we love hockey or it's because the T-wolves are sooo bad no one cares about the NBA anymore!
Trolling eBay for a new Hurricanes jersey for my son. He is growing out of his current one. Hoping to get to more games this seasin. It was hard to get motivated last year because they SUCKED! think I'll shoot for gettng tickets to the Stars game since I also LOVE the Stars. Can't go wrong that way and at least one of us will leave happy

So did any of you out of towners hear......
Our AHL Hartford Wolfpack has become.........
wait for it...........
The Connecticut Whale
Sorry guys... My daughter idolizes Hartnell. Wears 19 in her club league. Playoff time guy looks like a uniformed bear. Great game tho. Kid goalie looked good. But he is a Flyer goalie, so its only a matter of time before some bizarre injury or confidence-sucking slump will show up. The Avs-Hawks game was fun but not like Flyers-Pens. They should play once a week. Go back to a twelve team league with guys who just can't stand the sight of each other...
Everyone hates the Ravens! Only skied in PA once. Bear Creek for the day. Haven't really had time with travel soccer and hockey, etc. At some point will get some of our own equipment (almost all have boots now) which would allow for a little more spontaneous decision-making to head to the smaller hills instead of just destination trips. Have done 3 annual long weekends to Whiteface but are heading to Solitude this xmas b/c it is time to ski more...
Hard to get really excited about the Wild's off season moves, though I do like Cullen.
Different city, same vibe here. It is nice to bring a Minnesota boy home. Two games into the season and the Wild already look exactly like they did last year. The coach is saying this year will be different because they know the "system" now and don't have to learn it. They didn't have the personnel to play an up-tempo, fast skating game last year, basically acquired little new talent this year, but somehow with a year with the "system" under their belt, they are going to be a better team. I don't know how that works...... Could that be why the Wild are pre-season picks to finish 15th in the west? Local show here was wondering if the Wild will be like the T-wolves - lose their best player (Gaborik/Garnett) and sink to the bottom of the standings before they can turn things around. Gees, I hope the Wild don't get that bad......
