    Well, at least you aren't a Pens fan. (I suppose that comment will bring one forth...)

    Anyone know what's gotten into the Kings?

    It's okay. Nothing wrong with that. Not a bad team. They're doomed to disappointment, but I'm sure you can deal with that.

    Yeah, since 1995, I've gotten used to it. Break my heart every year.

    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!

    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 thats 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 thats hockey world...

    Who knows, indeed? I had lunch with a couple Rangers fans. It seems like each fan base expects doom. Can't both be right.

    One step closer for ya there. Game 7 should be wild. I do like the Caps here. They did it to Boston in Round 1. Why not again? I have to tip my cap to Ovechkin. Dude clearly isn't a big fan of playing defense and his coach makes him pay for it by giving him less minutes, but he's making that time count by scoring big, big goals. I'm just bummed we have to go through two full days of nothing before that game.

    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.)

    *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.

    Oof, then USA loses with seconds left. People who watched the games said the refs were awful in both games. Fact or fiction?

    Did the US use the Capitals Defense strategy?

    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.

    refs are poor this world champs but I am very disapointed because of Canada and USA, Canada was so bad in quaterfinals 1 and 3 period I just said to myself "What is it?" it wasnt Canada I dont know what happened and the US earned 8 seconds before the end of the third, I thought that the heart attack caught me at that time, yesterday was probably the worst day in hockey for me, I think that when Pens loss to Flyers was even better for me to get over than this

    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.
