I was going to turn on voting for this thread, for that exact reason. Wasn't sure with it being an open thread if I would get crucified or not. Didn't take the chance.
Here. We. Go!!
They played an even second period. They rallied from three goals down, they killed the power play at the end, and they have all the momentum heading into the third.
Welcome SEEBS, and that's an understatement
They have got to get out of this period
Karlsson draws the Jackets closer. 3-1. They are going to drag us with them right to the end
PP goal. Jenner gets us within one. Good grief this team...
Yep, they're done. While it ultimately won't matter, Malkin should be in the box too for the slash, but whatever
Can't finish at your end, pay the price at the other. Rust again.
Yep, gotta get out of the second down no more than the one they are now at worst.
Don't disagree about the call. I said bad penalty because these guys have to know every single 50/50 call has went against them. Just can't even put yourself in that position. Shitty, but that's how it's going down.
Gagner, takes a bad offensive zone penalty. Kessel makes him pay. 1-0 Pittsburgh at 9:07 of first.
Columbus comes out quick, but yet to capitalize. Same thing that got them in trouble in game one and two.
Hartnell in for Foligno.
I agree about the level of 'fandom'. This board is the perfect place though for people to ask questions, debate, and learn. In turn, this provides us diehards the forum to spread the game and bring new fans in. Bottom line...If people truly want to participate they will.
Keep posting, I'll keep up voting, lol. Also, join the game thread discussion. It will really help the participation of that thread, and a great way for you to collect +/-
Pennysaver, use the NHL forum to post Leafs, or general hockey stuff. No reason not to. Hopefully others will follow your lead, and it can create a place to talk all things hockey.
+1 to get you closer. The Blackhawks are a disaster right now. It's fun to watch.
Here's an UV to help you a bit. I agree that +/- should probably be adjusted.
That's on Bob
Agree with almost all of this. I think Fleury has worked tonight. Game one, you are spot on.
They are controlling the game. Fleury is playing out of his mind. Happens all the time. Bob stole games like that all year. Every season a hot goalie steals a playoff series. This team doesn't look as bad as they did at the end of the season. Hell, they don't look bad at all.
Your negativity isn't
Look at the response the comments got when they were offering free shirts. It actually kind of irritated me that hundreds of people took time to comment when offered free shit, but the same six people are commenting on anything else.
