hello hockey fans!
I am a big hockey fan, I support Penguins since my childhood, itīs my favorite club but I love all canadian teams too, Oilers, Leafs and Canucks the most, unfortunately none of them is in playoffs, what do you think who will be 2012 Stanley cup winner?
Until last night, I was seeing Kings - Caps as the finals...
Now... maybe Kings - Devils, cause I think even if the Rangers beat the Caps, they won't get past Jersey, who I expect will finish off the Flyers.
My husband's been watching b/c we're in Northern VA and DC fans. The Caps have one more chance tomorrow. Here's hoping!
"All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible"
Maryland burbs here. The problem of hoping is they rip your heart out. Maybe we should despair. Then they'll win.
A Cap/Flyers division final would be nice. There's so much animosity now with what's going on with the Nats/Phillies. (I went to one of the "Our Park" games last weekend. Insanely loud. Went to dinner in Eastern Market just go I could sit among the sad-faced Phillies fans. You know, the sort of folks who would cheer when Jayson Werth broke his wrist the next day. Okay, I'm off-topic...) That matchup's looking unlikely, though.
As I asked before, what's with the Kings all of a sudden?
The Kings were supposed to be pretty good this year. I thought they'd win that division, but they couldn't score to save their lives. Looks like the Carter trade really helped and now their big guys are stepping up.
The Devils snuck up on me. I have to admit I've had a bias against them since they were the catalyst for the dead puck era of the 90s, but they look real good. Devils/Kings I think would be a crazy Finals, but I still think the Caps can pull it off vs the Rangers so who knows.
this season is full of surprises for me but thatīs what it makes more amazing, personally I bet the Kings, although I am a bit sad that Jack Johnson was traded to the Blue Jackets before this big success of the Kings, but thatīs hockey world...
Well, I don't. I have Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez to watch pitch. (And plenty of ranting about Davey Johnson not putting in the lineup I think he should ) Nice to take my mind away from the Caps miserable playoff history. (Wash Post headline this morning: Capitals Survive To Play At Least One More Game.)
is here anybody watching World Championships in Finland and Sweden?
Can't. . . still mourning the Red Wings. . .
. . .anybody watching World Championships in Finland and Sweden?
From EFFIN' ALBERT:
Thereís a little flashlight donít work no more and a Ace comb and Gold Bond Body Powder. I pick it up to sniff and thatís when I see a little plastic card, got Jesus on it. I pick up the card and flip it over. On the other sideís some bible verse, starts D-e-u-screw it. I keep reading: Be strong and of good courage, fear not, or be afraid of them for the LORD thy God doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.
I stand there staring at that card. I want it, donít know why but I do. If I take it Iím stealing. No, just borrowing. Iíll keep it untiló
Until what, Mike?
Until I donít know what. I slip it in my back pocket and keep looking.
*le sigh* So much for the hopes of the season. Caps fall in 7 to Rangers.
Suspect that it will be Devils - Kings in the finals still. I think the Caps wore Lundquist out by taking them to seven games. Then again Brodeur is not exactly a young buck out there. So we have to wait and see... I would have loved to see a 7 seed and an 8 seed in the finals, though.
Ah well. Always next year.
Canada out, loss to Slovakia
Do you think even the Capitals will continue the Capitals Defense strategy next year? I was feeling optimistic...then Hunter quit. All we need is another system.
Kings were up 3 games to none, then lose 3 to 1 last night.
Are they choking? Will they continue to be a cupless team?
(Like the other 15 teams out there whom the refs won't let into the finals...)
Not sure if the Kings are choking, but I'm happy to see the Devils making it tougher on them. I hate it when any championship series is a sweep.
I'd prefer to see the Devils win the series, but it's pretty unlikely and I suppose it won't make that much difference to me either way. I'm still hoping against hope that Parise will sign with the Bruins next year. And I think Jarred Stoll is a free agent this offseason as well. He'd be a nice fit in Boston.
