Hockey 2019-2020

Post by vegas0307 »

Missing hockey? Bored as all get-out? Head on over to YouTube and query "Spittin Chiclets". It's a series of interviews and adventures by Paul Bissonette (Biznasty) and another guy whose name I forgot, but it's worth a look. There are quite a few of their clips there. I started with the Brian Burns interview and went on from there. :ksthumb:

ETA: Some of these are NSFW (language).

Here's how the teams are paired off for first round, which is best-of-seven:

Eastern:
Flyers/Canadiens
Lightning/Blue Jackets
Capitals/Islanders
Bruins/Hurricanes

Western:
Golden Knights/Blackhawks
Avalanche/Coyotes
Stars/Flames
Blues/Canucks

The underlined teams are the ones I'm guessing will take the win. You'll probably see that I'm as bad at this as I am with my NASCAR Leagues.

That's funny - hockey is never over at our house.

If you were watching the games yesterday, you saw something that rarely happens. The very first game of the playoffs between the Blue Jackets and the Lightning was finally decided 3-2.....in the FIFTH overtime period. It started at 3 pm, and finished around 9:20 PM last night. The game following it, Bruins/Canes, had to be postponed until today at 11 AM on NBCSN (in case you aren't at work and feel like looking in). The two goalies last night both put on "clinics"; they were incredible, and great to watch. It could have gone either way.

But I wonder if Mr. Bettman (the NHL's version of Brain) was thinking after all the OTs, "Couldn't we just settle this with a coin toss or something?"

I was 'watching' via social media....

But I just can't get in to watching when 'our' teams aren't in it.... so Pens, Devils and Leafs are all gone... so no one cares enough to 'watch'....

Here's how Round 1 of playoffs ended up

Eastern:
Flyers/Canadiens
Lightning/Blue Jackets
Capitals/Islanders
Bruins/Hurricanes

Western:
Golden Knights/Blackhawks
Avalanche/Coyotes
Stars/Flames
Blues/Canucks

And the scores in this house were:
Joanna (my daughter) - 5 wins
Landon (the house goalie) - 4 wins
vegas (the house geezerette) - 3 wins

Oddly, the kid who actually plays professional hockey was only second best, and my daughter, who rarely watches even the Flyers, won this! As for the geezerette, she tries.

I try and I try and I try to keep faith in my Flyers, and look WTF they do - yes, they're enroute home now, leaving the Islanders behind to battle with the Lightning. :cry: And maybe someday, I'll trust that rookie goalie, Cater Hart, but not just yet. He sooooo wasn't ready for any of this.

Maybe next year, Philly. :banghead:

Here's howRound 2 ended up (winners in boldface):

Flyers/Islanders
Lightning/Bruins
Golden Knights/Canucks
Avalanche/Stars

And our little family tournament ended up with me getting 2 right, Joanna getting 1 right, and the house goalie, wonder of wonders, getting a ZERO! :crackup:

For Round 3, we have only 2 games: (my guesses underlined)

Islanders/Lightning
Golden Knights/Stars. *

* For those in the know, the Stars already won their first game last night against Vegas, 1-0, so this doesn't look good for me this early.)

And then there were two. We're down to the:

Stars/Lightning.

I'm taking the Lightning, and the rest of the family took the Stars, even though they really want the Lightning to win. We'll see.

(For the last round, the house goalie got both right and Joanna and I each got one right.)

I see now how this last matchup is gonna go. Those damn Stars beat the Lightning last night 4-1. That hurts. :shock:

In case you were living under a rock yesterday, and have NO idea what happened:

THE LIGHTNING WON THE STANLEY CUP!

It was one of those games where I was going to wander off and do "some other stuff" while the game played in the background, but once it started, I could not look away! Both teams were incredible and the goalies were magnificent! It ended 2-0, but the Stars gained more respect from me than they ever got before. Class and hard work, and I don't think this is the last time in the near future that we'll see them in the Stanley Cup finals. And the Lightning were more solid and sure than they've ever seemed before. As soon as it was final, I sent the house goalie a message on Instagram (the only way I can get through to an out-of-country person without paying big bucks), and imagine my surprise when I got a message back immediately! This would have been 2 AM to 5 AM Slovakian time. Yes, he was up watching. :lol:
