Ugh. Being a DC sports fan is so frustrating.

Lucic and Nash should be interesting too...I hope he waked up now. I can feel him being a difference maker.

Boston will be tough, but I feel fairly confident that the Rangers can win the series. The Bruins haven't exactly been at the top of their game for the past one or two months, while the Caps came in flying high with a clear MVP candiate, strong goaltending, and the wins to show for it. The Caps played a fast and aggressive style that the Rangers sometimes had a lot of trouble with, but I think the Bruins will be more their speed.

The one player we could really use aginst the Bruins is Clowe. angry.gif

Well Leaf fans should be proud of how their guys played for all but game 1 and the last 10 minutes of game 7.

They played with lots of heart, something our Canucks have been lacking for a while. Especially tough since this is not the 2011 Boston Bruins out there.

A meltdown for the ages though.

Anchorman meme is funny I must admit. But to be technical it was people from Surrey that tried to burn the city down in '11, there is a limited gene pool on the south side of the Port Mann Bridge.

also, the Bruins d-line is pretty banged up, at least 2 or 3 guys are out. The opening game schedule will favor them with recovery time (first game Thursday, second game Sunday), but it could be something for the Rangers to take advantage of. I'd guess that Chara will be on Nash duty leaving the rest of the defensemen having to deal with the likes of Callahan and Brassard (two players that could really use Chara attention if the B's plan to keep them scoreless).

Felt so bad watching the end of the Leafs game last night. Poor Reims.

Lucic adds insult to injury?

Rangers did not bring their A-game, not by a long shot. Their forcheck was especially weak, and powerplay was hilarious.

still, they could have won the game.

I love how lundqvist stopped 45 shots, put up a .938 save % and still blamed himself.

I can relate to dem OT loss goalie feels, but... seriously. Hank is the least of NYRs concerns.

In other news Canada lost in the QFs for the third straight year in the IIHF worlds. How a roster largely populated by stars and top line talent manages to drop shootout decisions to the Swiss and the swedes is beyond me. I think the only international power team worse than Canada is Russia..you Yankees pasted them. Good on you... Poor bryz, lol.

Hank is a pure stud. Sucks that he has had no scoring help for years.

Are the Swiss turning into a legit hockey force? They used to be a joke... They took Canada to SO in the last Olympics, and have now beaten USA and Canada in the world championships. Yes, the intl game is different than the NHL but relatively speaking they have improved a lot.

Berra was one of the nobodies thrown in on the Jbo trade and he got the shutout vs USA today. Hopefully he can take that game to the NHL next year.
